We arrived Friday night to a spectacular sunset. We dropped our bags, made some drinks and headed right for the upstairs deck. The view is spectacular and the setting is truly one-of-a-kind. The sound 0f the water and of the surrounding boats is a memory I will cary with me for a long time. Thank you Bill and Mary. - Paul


WOW - the whole place feels like the captain's quaters on an old wood ship. The woodwork is beautiful and all the accomodations are there. Loved the jetted tub and the upstairs deck. Great place to watch the lake and sunsets. We'll be back next year. - Megan
