You can arrange a pontoon tour of the lake and surrounding vistas arranging through bungalow management or butler. The extent will vary with water level.

Boat trip from one side to other to visit Summerville bungalow. Nice, peaceful, day out. Apparently there are other water based activities to try but we didn't do those.
