Lakes End Lodge delivered everything promised and more. The swimming is exceptionally good - the area around the dock is sandy and clear for a substantial distance as the water becomes gradually deeper, but is deep enough to jump in off the dock and swim in too. There were several boat options and plenty of (large) life jackets. The mountain roads snaking through the woods right outside the door are quiet, empty of traffic, seemingly endless, and beautiful, with a rocky stream within half a mile of the house. Lots of hiking in the area. The property feels very private for a lake dotted with other houses, as it is the last house before the undeveloped side of the lake begins and is tucked into a little cove. The screened porch and unscreened porch both were large and accommodated a number of chairs with plenty of extra space and had excellent views of the lake and mountains. The house is open and spacious with plenty of eating space for 8. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, etc. Great home in a great location.
