Nice accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Nice cabin/house with fantastic view of the lake. Lake access with nice sandy bottom. Great for kids to swim - just remember to take steps to avoid swimmers itch. Great neighbors on either side.

During our stay the TV died, but the owner had a replacement in place within 24 hours.

Would suggest that the washer and dryer be made accessible to guests during their stay. As a fire protection professional would recommend that additional smoke alarms be placed in each bedroom along with in the upstairs hallway.
