Between the perfect weather, outdoor fire, canoe ...

"Between the perfect weather, outdoor fire, canoe and very comfortable setting I would say it was a fantastic vacation. With small kids running free on the lawn and the knee high lake and adults enjoying cold drinks on the deck ... we all had a perfect family retreat. Thanks." -- Singh family (US and Canada)
