Perfect for a large family
We decided to take the kids on a trip right before school started and this cabin was perfect. The lake was warm and a great size for kids to play in as there weren't any motorised boats. We could barely get the kids to come in for dinner at the end of the day as they were having so much fun on the swimming wharf. If we needed more seating we just pulled in some chairs from the patio. We have 5 kids total so we needed a lot of space (which we were nervous about) but this cabin provided more than enough beds for everyone. The kids loved having their own living room in the basement where they could have their own space to play and watch netflix (complimentary). The edges of the lake does have reeds and vegetation but that is why we were able to see painted turtles, ducks, loons and other creatures! The kids will never forget getting to touch a turtle shell for the first time. We were worried about it being too hot in the cabin but there was great airflow when we opened the windows so it was always a comfortable temp. We barely spent time in the cabin during the day anyway and it cools down in the evening. Everything was well stocked and there were plenty of towels (we used up a lot after swimming in the lake every day) and the kitchen was perfect for preparing enough food for the whole family. An amazing surprise was when our kids started to find fossils of plants and small fish in the slate tiles on the floor, they were so cool! The public beach was a short walk from the property and it was a great place to meet other families with kids. There is a security/emergency camera on the outside of the property, which gave us peace of mind. Overall a very natural, peaceful vacation in the mountains. The kids are already begging to come back next summer so I'm sure we will be booking again soon (the schedule fills up quickly). Thanks again Jerry! Regards from the Brennan family.
