  • Lake Retreat with My 3 Adult Children


    This cute cabin was meticulously decorated with "lake-venture" deco and had extremely comfortable furniture and bedding to accommodate all age groups (kids/teens/adults). We had every amenity necessary from kitchenware to laundry detergent. The kayaks and paddle boards made this an amazingly fun reunion for us on this beautiful lake!
