    Nice place and great location, we were down baby sitting for a wedding at the black barn unfortunately our stay was cut short due to awful weather and loss of power, but it was a nice stay for the short time we were there.

    Great lake views and can just fit two boats on the property. The house is spacious, great log fire, and well equipped kitchen. Suits two families very well.
