The location was selected to be midway between Cincinnati and St. Louis. A bit too windy to fully enjoy the lake, but the amazing wrap-around deck offered a spot to enjoy sun and lake view (including bald eagle).
This is the country - so restaurant selection in the area is not extensive. But the open plan kitchen/dining/living area is roomy and well-equipped.
The house is configured very well with the two full baths - without having to pass through someone's bedroom. Lot's of optional sleeping spaces if you had kids along, but it was also great for four adults - each with our own beds.
Decor is lake-housey, but extraordinarily clean and everything in great shape!
