"This house was amazing, and really made the first family reunion in years one we will remember for a lifetime.
This was the first time four generations of our family was together. There were 13 of us, ranging in age from 6 months to 75 years. I was worried we'd be piled on top of each other but this was completely not the case. Great space for the littlest ones to sleep comfortably at night while the adults caught up. More than enough space to spread out and everyone could claim some personal territory. Lots of bathrooms. Plenty of TVs so those who wanted to watch could, without bothering those who didn't. Huge kitchen very well stocked and amenable to cooking. Great grill and corn cooker outside that got their fair share of use. Two fridges that kept us well stocked. Two washer and driers which was key to keep us in fresh towels, as we could not get enough of the beach. Oh, the BEACH!
We rented this house with the intent we'd use it as a home base to explore the region. We had lots of things planned. Well, we did about 10% of them. We had such a great time at the house, on the beach and playing in the water with the already well described INCREDIBLY well stocked beachfront. Someone was always out on a SUP, kayak, paddleboat, inflatable or canoe while someone was playing badminton on the lawn. Seriously, we opened the shed and even the adults were like kids in a toy store. We spent so much time in the water (which was VERY warm) and had a blast. Three generations splashing around, reconnecting like we were all at summer camp. Good fishing (for the little ones) and snorkeling around the little inlet too. We were going to rent a boat but honestly never got around to it because we were already having so much fun with the non motorized water toys. We had several fires in the pit as well which was great!
The house itself is beautiful and decorated just how I would like to have my home. Beds were very comfortable. Andy and his sister were so so nice and easy to deal with. They put together a binder of fun things to do in the area and I wish we had more time to go through everything!
I can't say enough nice things about this experience. It really will always be a very special place and time for our family; as people age and move away you never know how many more adventures like this you'll have together. Thank you Loon Lodge! (At the end of the trip my sister bought us all a stuffed loon to commemorate the week, and it's sitting atop my mantle now!)"
