Both family rooms either sofa beds or futons. Kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary utensils. You can enjoy a romantic evening watching the sunset on the lake, or roast marshmallow in the out door fireplace, or make barbecue using meat from local farms, or find yourself enjoying the starlight in our luxurious hot tub. There are a lot of things to do for any age. Rest, relax, enjoy and turn family time into lasting memories.
