When you enter this cabin, you can smell the wood--and to us, that was a very pleasing smell. The place was immaculate, newly refurbished, and with excellent taste. We greatly appreciated little touches--nice fabric place mats in a sideboard; wine glasses on the same; a beautiful wooden table that connects the space from a newly finished porch to the old cabin living room. Appliances were new and in good working order, the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and such (great pan for pancakes--a staple on our vacations). The outside was equally tidy with a nice, soft mulch bed that did not get muddy when it rained, a picnic table, two basic grills with charcoal and lighter fluid in the shed. The lake is down the slope of the front yard and across a minor street. The beach is wonderfully sandy, and there are chairs, a fire bowl, and a beautiful canoe there. We used the canoe often. My wife saw two bald eagles on one of the lake islands one morning. My son and I saw a great blue heron another morning. We saw and heard a pair of loons constantly. And the sunsets were sublime. We did not have service and there is no wifi at the cabin--that is one of the reasons we chose it, and it's a big reason why we would go back if the opportunity arose. We were very close to many natural attractions we wanted to see. I might only note a couple of things: we could have used a second extension cord to arrange fans when the heat picked up, and we did not bring blankets. I think Judy told me to bring blankets, linens and towels when we first talked last winter, but by packing time in August, when I looked up what to bring, I only saw notices for linens and towels. We solved both of these problems easily, and our time at this cabin was pure rest and rejuvenation in nature. If that's what you're looking for, I can't recommend this place, and Judy as a hostess, highly enough.
