Great house, great location

5 of 5
We were a group of 4 adults 2 kids and a baby. We stayed at the house for a week and had a very good time. The house was very clean and is very charming. Everything was as advertised. The lake is very pleasant for swimming and water sports. There is a supermarket 5 minutes drive from the house. There are a lot of things to do in the area. We will definitely consider the house for a next vacation.
