Although the location is great, this rental has been neglected over time and needs a major overhaul. It is currently for sale. Also the water needs as filtration system. The iron content was so high we had to buy water to drink.

Management response:

This home was gutted and totally remodeled a couple years ago. I will see about the water softener but all the water in the area is the same, I drink it myself. I am very proud of this little cabin it is cute and cozy, as you can see by the photos.

About the neighbourhood
Near Casino, Golf, Fishing, Beaches, Shopping, Winery. For those interested in fishing, Bar Lake, and its outflow, is a fish magnet in the spring and fall - one of the many reasons this is such a great place to cast a line. Anglers can most often expect to catch steelhead, brown trout, and round goby from Bar Lake. On rare occasion, yellow perch, coho salmon, and Chinook salmon can also be caught at this spot.
