This is a small, older lake cottage with a very nice recent remodel. One bedroom is small, the other one is tiny. The bathroom is tiny too. And even little kids won't be able to stand up in the loft. But they'll have fun climbing up there and looking through the bars. If you're OK with small, you should like this place. It has a nice deck that sticks out into the channel, and even though it's not right on the lake, it's a pleasant place to sit if the weather's nice. I would stay here again.
