This place is great. The cabins are off the beaten track, cozy and have everything you could need. We stayed for two nights and were sad to leave. Each cabin has a decent if not great view of the lake, unlike nearby properties, and each cabin is equipped with a deck facing the lake and a full size BBQ and patio table for 4. The bed was comfy, we could have used one more pillow each, but that's a personal preference more than anything. The cabin was spotless and stocked with lots of fresh clean towels.
We took advantage of the boats available to guests - a few metal rowboats, a kayak, and a pedal boat and took both the row boat and pedal boat out for an hour each (the maximum at one time). The only complaint is that there were more pedal boats that were broken that the one pedal boat was in high demand in the evening!
Harold the owner gave us everything we needed and stayed behind the scenes the rest of the time, which fine by me.
I'm surprised there aren't more reviews here because the place was busy and everyone seemed happy with their surroundings.
We will be going back next year for at least a week next time!
