  • The surrounding of the property is really attractive

    The surrounding of the property is really attractive. Very close to the lake. Quite & peaceful neighborhood. We really like the setting and the fenced back yard with the deck. The house size is average and good size bedrooms. Master bedroom with wall mounted TV/DVD was very useful for kids at night. Heat pump works well to heat up the house quickly. Good flow of showers, very happy about that too. We'll definitely come back and pass this to our friends too.
