This is our second time staying here with family and we’ve had an enjoyable time disconnecting from the world and enjoying the water. Love that the deck had a gas fire pit and a coal grill with lots of seating. Kitchen had a Keurig so be sure to bring pods or a coffee device. Kitchen was missing a few items - cutting board, lighter, wine opener, and extra baking pan. Bathroom had towels which was nice for a cabin! Walkable distance general store had extra items if needed for purchase and the BEST pizza for order and bloody Mary’s!!!!
