Amazing

5 of 5
We spent a week at this amazing cabin , It was so clean and peaceful,we were also lucky to have fantastic weather.The cabin had amazing views across the lake and George was extremely helpful from when we first booked to we came home. Beautiful location everything we needed was there including a rowing boat which we used a few times. We explored the area by car and foot and ŵe also used the train .An amazing place to stay so relaxing.
