Private and secluded

  • 4 of 5

We had our own private lake and did not have to to worry about the other boats when the kids were swimming or canoeing in the lake. The lake was very pretty as it it was surrounded by water lilies. Fishing was terrific, even our 6 year old managed to catch fish for dinner. We also went gathering fresh eggs from chicken nests. The on-site staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative was the geese with their “droppings” which kind of ruined the nice green lawn.

The definition of seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

600 acres with no one else around us, truly felt disconnected from the rest of the world. The property is very well maintained, the house is clean and welcoming, bedrooms are cozy and fresh. The lake is not huge, but you have it to yourself, there are no others on it, and it does not connect to any other lakes or river systems. The bonfire pit was my personal favourite, we kept the fire going all weekend, blasted music with no worries that anyone would hear anything. We will be going back! Thanks again for everything Avi!
