What People Say About Us

Home: Testimonials

I absolutely love this place! I’ve come up here with my parents a few times. I Love how the cabins are not updated and not too fancy! I absolutely love the older styles! Beautiful property and love being surrounded by the water! Cabins are cleanest ones I’ve ever seen! Would highly recommend!
