Amenities & Room:
but there was considerable stress unloading the car as the stairs down to the cabin from the road
Quiet cozy cabin especially in the evening
we could see the different colors as the sun went down over the lake and the trees
You can sit in the living room and the view is right there
shoot it-older box TV
It was bed bath and beyond
but I think this is supposed to be the "bedroom "
We hiked and hung around Good for big people
Cute comfortable well stocked cabin and pet friendly
Good news is we could completely relax and not worry about our dogs or dirty hiking boots
Some nice touches to note: very clean owner followed up with us via email after our arrival to be sure everything was good flowers and a huge bottle of wine that lasted us the whole week
are a scary combination of small rotted and steep After the ice chest with most of our food took a tumble
However we booked this vacation to get away from the heat
The kids played boardgames and billiards then we left to walk the dogs around the lake every afternoon
Close enough to get there quickly but far enough to not see all the bustle of the Village
Having a kitchen was a plus and the balconies were such a bonus to enjoy at different times of day
(ie no snow play area-surrounding property is very steep)
