Everything we needed!
Bill and family were welcoming hosts, inviting us into their very well maintained and comfortable property. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home and that this was a safe, quiet, and adventurous area for us and our two kids. The lawn allowed them to get out and run; and the lake offered hours of swimming, paddling, and rowing-the water was just right this time of year and so we took long swims out into Lake Stinson. The lake is within sight from the comfortable chairs on the lawn; the dock is about a five minute stroll down a steep, curving, road that is paved on the steepest parts. As the kitchen was well equipped, we prepared all our meals there and felt we were in our home away from home. During the week there was almost no traffic on the road adjacent to the property which was conducive to relaxation for us wilderness-loving city dwellers. A family of woodpeckers were softly (no kidding) working on the tree behind the house-a treat for all of us to watch. Remember to bring sheets, towels, and blankets for the colder evenings/nights. The only downside was that we didn't schedule more time there...
