Great fun with little kids!
We spent a week here with our 1 year old & 3 year old and had a really nice time. It's a small house on a very clean reservoir. Because you are next to the causeway on one side and a little patch of trees on the other, it feels much more private than some other lake houses which are right next to one another.
There is a sandy, shallow swimming spot that is nicely shaded; a dock with a ladder into waist-deep water; a canoe and paddles and lifejackets. There is a patio, table and grill, a spot for a fire outside and a gazebo to sit in. We canoed and fished and swam. I have very happy summer memories of this place.
The reservoir allows motors, so this would be an especially good spot for a someone looking for a low-key place to dock a boat.
You are just steps away from a park with walking trails which is nice. It's also about 10 minutes from grocery stores and KMart, WalMart, etc so it's easy to stock up when you have to.
The house itself is exactly as appears in the photos - not fancy, but comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the owners provide linens and bath towels. They live one house away and are extremely responsive and pleasant. We had to go to them mid-week for a small house-related problem which they resolved immediately & to our complete satisfaction. They're good people who really want their guests to have a positive experience -- but still stay out of your way. They were very easy to communicate with when setting up the rental, and promptly refunded my security deposit afterward. I truly couldn't ask for better hosts.
