    Really enjoyed staying here and will stay here anytime we don't have our dog with us. Great breakfast included, lake and activities are a great touch. The railway is close, so if you're a light sleeper it'll wake you up.

    Wonderfully relaxing retreat at the McCarthy House, private with own personal hot tub with a beautiful view of the pond and wildlife. Owners are very friendly and make the stay enjoyable. I have not stayed in the motel section only at the McCarthy house.
