Owners were very friendly. Location was beautiful, very private & peaceful. House was clean, kitchen well equipped. It has a quirky layout that lacks a bit of privacy but it worked well for our family of 6. Had access to several different boats which everyone enjoyed.
Other Activities: kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding
