The website does not do it justice. They leave out the 5 kayaks the canoe and all the float toys for the kids all of whom are safely enclosed in the many life jackets provided in the house. Closest neighbors are not visible and can not be audibly heard.
Neighbors are far enough about 1/2 mile at closest not to be a bother and to make you feel completely isolated. Wonderful dock located just below the house to tie the boats up to or to spend the day fishing with an ice chest full of refreshments Fishing is good there and can be done mostly with night crawlers. Best to cast at least 20 feet from the dock directly in front once hooked or just retrieving your line come back in fast and high to avoid the submerged trees in front and to the sides of the dock. Caught from the dock 2 15 inch trout many bream, yellow perch a small walleye and a variety of not sure what they were. Be patient and they will come. If it's windy or they are not biting switch from float with 2 foot lead to bottom fishing. The kids spent more time outside than they ever do at home just to much for them to do. You might have to instigate the initial activity by jumping in a kayak or hopping into an innertube but they will follow and soon will not need you. Safest place for a kid you could find no cars no neighbors.
PS The house is really nice also. If it's raining which it does there is a very large dining table which is perfect for all the puzzles and board games that are available. Many movies on DVD and large supply of books. The kitchen has every item that you may need. Much more so than any house I have rented.
K if you read this you need to trim the trees just up about ten feet from the deck to get the wonderful view of the lake and the hills back to what it was. Best selling feature of the house. I have rented many mountain homes once but have been here five times. After I'm done and gone the kids will always talk about the times I took them to Skinny Dippin.
Hello Terry, Thank you for your feedback! We'll make sure to get the trees trimmed. We hope to host you again soon!

We loved this home! It was in a gorgeous location, with amenities for all. We were able to mix and mingle amongst ourselves, play and laugh, to TALK. As a mom, that was worth everything. To see the family laughing and talking together is vacation gold! Thank you!
