Beautiful, Memorable, Peaceful and Fun!
Originally I reserved this gem, for a full week, as a end of summer getaway with a friend. As it turned out my friend could only stay for 2-1/2 days but my good friend, and cousin who lives in Walloon Lake, came to stay with me a day and a half. Last, but not at all least, all 4 of my kids and my grandson came to stay the last 3 days. This was the first time I have been on vacation alone with my all my kids, ages 29 to 18, and my grandson, age 12. Along with outdoor activities, we gathered around the table playing cards, dice and board games (several games provided in the cabin). I can't possibly explain just how wonderful it was other than "A new yearly tradition has begun!!!" Thank you Sue and Jerry!!! The owners, Sue and Jerry, are absolutely lovely people and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this island retreat to anyone I know. I rented their pontoon boat for the week and it started and ran like a charm. My son, 26, caught his first bass while kayaking to the island from the mainland upon arrival. My grandson loved kayaking and taking the paddle boat, provided with the rental, out with his uncle and loved his down time in the hammock. Pure Joy all around!!! We didn't use the hot tub, located on the property owners deck, but we enjoyed sitting in the Tiki Hut on nice days as well as to watch the passing storms and rain. The weather wasn't accommodating for more than 1 campfire, but that's the way it goes sometimes. One thing I feel I should mention, due to a previous review, is that the owners do not live on the other side of the island but rather right next door. Their two dogs are sweet as can be and the owners are more than happy to help if/when you need them! A most memorable experience for us all!
