Better for younger families
Went with my folks who are older so it was too far for them to walk. It also had so overgrown in front of the cottage that we really didn't have a view of the lake as we'd hoped. I think the photos are outdated on here. We had some problems, but the owners came and fixed them. The cottage is set back in the woods, so if you are looking for something quiet, off the beaten path- this is your kind of place. I think we prefer something closer to the water though, more of a beachy feel to it. Wanted to watch the sun set from the cottage, which is impossible. Also, prefer a bedroom without a skylight so we can sleep in past sunrise and not hear the pitching of rain when it rains! This may be the perfect place for some, it just wasn't what we were looking for.
