  • This is a really special property

    This is a really special property. We were there with three generations of our family and it was perfect - plenty of room,a lovely deck for sunny mornings, the house was really well set up and everything was there. The lake is beautiful and the kayaks got lots of use. The spa was a real hit and a place to relax each evening and look at the stars. The house was beautifully warm (it was cold in the evenings) and we were really comfortable. We just loved it. Thanks Rachelle.

    The lodge is AMAZING! We were worried that the kids would be bored with no technology, but they had a blast! There is soo much to do, Kayaking, swimming, spa, table tennis, board games, fishing and we cant forget the giant waterslide. Our family from the UK loved it as well. Was so nice for them to be out of the concrete jungle and just relax. An experience we wont forget!

    I don’t know of a more perfect location for a close family gathering. We kayaked, fished, star-gazed, hiked, biked and then relaxed on the massive deck and soaked up the picture book scenery. The hot tub was also enjoyed by all at the end of the day. We can’t wait to return!
