"We stayed off-season so it was very quiet in the neighborhood and the whole peninsula, which is fine with me!
The views are amazing, as the northern exposure gives you a solid sunrise and most of the sunset (over the trees, but reflects beautifully on the water and sky)
The house has every modern convenience and special care taken for the front living-room area. I've never sat in a leather-reclining-swivel-rocking chair before and there are two of them which we spent many happy hours in. Often the furniture at rentals is barely adequate, but this place is downright luxurious, such as the comfy couch that could easily fit three adults.
Beautiful hardwood floors from end-to-end, amazing views with double-sliding glass doors out front. A ton of outdoor furniture, some permanently on the beach, others up on the bluff, and the amazing hammock of course.
The gas fireplace worked great and is positioned so that you can enjoy it while looking out at the lake or the opposite direction if you are inclined to watch TV (we didn't)
Wireless WIFI was better than I have at home.
Unlimited firewood, kindling, and a beach-side fire-pit for hanging out.
Three working bicycles, even lifejackets for kids, that's amazing.
Full laundry worked great, even though we didn't plan it. Like everything else, it is completely thought out: there was laundry detergent.
The kitchen was stocked with everything you could imagine: even coffee filters, disposable travel coffee cups with lids, an immense selection of wineglasses, aluminum foil, saran wrap, everything you can possibly imagine, it's in there.
The water level was high this year so we could only walk East on the beach due to rock breakwalls on neighboring houses.
Unlike Cathead Bay, there is not the 30 mile-an-hour wind down the beach which never stops. Generally we had still to mild breezes most of the time.
Owners let us check in a couple hours early as we were the first arrivals of the season!
They are very accessible as they live about half hour awayy
The only downside would be for someone who was wheelchair bound, there are no ramps although if you can manage three steps, you're in!
If you don't like to cook there are about 4 restaurants still within a 10 minute drive in Downtown Northport."
