Lots of dvd's there or bring your favorites! This room also has two large patio doors that open onto a raised deck overlooking the bottom deck and hot tub area. Both decks have the same gorgeous view of lake. Also on side yard lots of grass you can enjoy, crochet, horseshoes, badmitton....bring your bikes lots of great trails nearby in State Park or bike in neighborhood.

PS... We take great pride in our home and do NOT tolerate large parties. We do however want you and your families to have a wonderful time!! But the house is only set up for 10 people.
