Can't wait to get back there! Nice and secure/safe for the toddlers and they loved the grapevine!! Reserve next door has swings in addition to the tramp and other outdoor play stuff at the house. Beautiful.

This is a wonderful place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. A perfect place for kids to spend time outside. It is secluded but close to the lake and there's plenty to do and see in the area. The house was well equipped.
