The lake is crystal clear as it is one of the only spring fed lakes in the area.
Please consider helping my staff, by removing any towels used in the bathrooms and any sheets and pillow cases from the beds used during your stay, just before you depart. Leave those used linens in the first floor laundry room. I do expect you to leave the house in same general state of cleanliness, as that in which you received it. However the remainder of all deeper and detailed cleaning and all linen washing will be done by my home help.
