initially we stopped by the place for kayaking. As we walked around the property we fell in love with the beach chairs by the water, the gazebo on the side, benches for picnic. After kayaking, we have found out that the lodge had availability and have decided to stay. The owner set up a bon-fire in the evening, and it just made the experience so much greater. The owner is very hospitable, and made us feel welcome. The lodge is in the center of the town - thus, you can leave the car parked and walk around the town whenever.
