We have stayed here two times now. It is on a quiet part of the lake with wonderful views. There are three levels to this house and all levels have a bathroom/bedroom. We had three families stay here and it was wonderful for us to socialize, yet we could all have our private time also. The house has all that we needed and we just brought food. There is no central air (for summer visits), but there are two portable air conditioners for the main and upstairs levels. The basement stays very comfortable w/out air. We will continue to stay at this house and would recommend to others. The owner is very easy to work with.
Peaceful bay on Balsam Lake. Scenic view of Pines which create a wind break so the water rarely has waves. Close public boat access on bay. Length of bay and still waters make it perfect for water skiing. The day can be spent on the lake boating with all its acres to explore and places to stop for lunch. Jet ski, swim, tubing, fishing, volley ball, bike, all your favorite summer activities !
