Overall experience was 10 out of 10. Definitely will recommend. My kids and I enjoyed fishing and and playing outside all day then cuddled up for movies and went to bed with a beautiful view of cable lake.

I had a lovely stay at this cozy lake house. The pictures are representative of the property and my local contact Lauren was incredibly helpful. I really enjoyed the gas fireplace right next to the view of the lake.
I stayed alone, so can't speak to the other sleeping accommodations, but the master bedroom was great. It had a view of the lake and the bed was very comfortable.
Lauren told me about a great little hike nearby and that definitely added to the whole experience.
I didn't see or hear any neighbors while I was there (but it was a snowy week), the wifi was great, and it was easy to have groceries delivered via Instacart. The kitchen was also well stocked when it came to tools, thought I'd bring olive oil, etc. if you plan to cook.
