Right from your doorstep you have access to swimming, boating and fishing all summer long. The retreat offers a large, gently sloping yard and a sandy beach for all ages as well as a fire pit for nighttime storytelling & star gazing. A private boat dock and mooring buoys allow you to bring a boat or 2 or you have the option of renting one, if you wish, to explore the beautiful lake and its many islands.

There is plenty of room to roam on the property for endless fun and outdoor relaxation. Picnic tables, a sandbox and swing set for children and a volleyball net on the grass, as well as a horseshoe pit will keep all ages busy. A fantastic game room is located off the cabins and features a pool table, air hockey, foosball, comfy seating and a flat screen tv. A ping pong table is located on the outdoor patio of the main house along with additional seating.

Great place for family to get together!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the lake. This little gem of a get-a-way is just perfect for families to spend some quality time together. Between the kayaks, canoes, games, yard and well everything else, we could not have asked for anything more. Looking forward to coming back next year. You will not be disappointed with your stay here!!!

Great spot for a family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth and best year at the Retreat, thanks to a new owner who's enthusiasm resulted in great communication, a clean and tidy property, and a bunch of improvements. The addition of kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboat was a huge plus. There is plenty of space for all 26 of us to spread out. The game room is always a big hit with the teens, and the large sun porch allows us to all get together for dinner every night. The fire pit is perfect for making s'mores or late night stargazing. And sunrise on the the lake is not to be beat. We're look forward to next year!

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Brought nearly an entire boy's soccer team to the location for a weekend tournament...had an absolute blast! The property was clean and well kept, the view and the lake both perfect. Mary (the owner) was communicative and responsive...no complaints, and we can't wait to come back!
