What a fanastic experience. The first thing my father and I noticed upon arrival was a very warm welcome and the great hospitality of Mark and Laura the hosts.The cabins are strategically located near the lake offering a fantastic view and are very well mainted clean and tidy. You can enjoy all the luxuries of hot water, flush toilets, a fidge and microwave. We enjoyed a delicious whitefish dinner friday which was accompanied by phenomenal clam chowder. That was followed with "steak at the lake" saturday, this meal too met the high standards of this resort. Mark kept the 17' stanley boats clean and full of gas and always made sure we were happy. he also arranged for a guide that kept us on the fish all day and put my father on a 10lbs laker. This was great experience niether of us will soon forget!!!
