I stayed here for a solo week-long retreat at the end of March. The hosts, Heather and Bill, were very friendly but left me by myself when I wanted privacy. The lake was mysterious and magical, with the rain drops falling and birds chirping.
The lakehouse is lovely: the kitchen was fully stocked with everything one could need. There is a very nice fireplace and it was stocked with wood and kindling, prefect for nighttime relaxation. The spa tub outside was fantastic, and I wish I had spent more time in it. It was very clean and I really appreciated having a laundry set.
The location is completely private: at least 2000 feet from the road and main house, up a long driveway. If you enjoy solitude and quiet, this is your place. Note that there is no telephone, no cable, and no internet= bliss. If you need all that then I suggest staying at the airport holiday inn ;)
Overall it was a great stay, and I will likely be back. Great value!
