This charming resort accommodated 12 of us for the weekend. The cottages were clean and comfortable. I loved the rustic charm of the large screended in porch, the adirondack chairs surrounding the fire pit, plus the lovely lilly pond trimmed with perennials.

This is a very clean, relaxing and enjoyable resort! The owners are so helpful and welcoming. It's a perfect place for reunions, as there are many cozy cottages and larger ones, so all can congregate.
