Is vacation was with my 3 children and husband. There was many things for the kids to do and relaxation for the adults. The lake was wonderful, and the handyman Bret was great! We will definitely be going back! One thing we missed was a table to eat at, but we made due with the coffee table. After all, we were on vacation in an amazing place!

We stayed here a number of years ago and it is truly a unique property. So glad we found it again online so we can stay again.
This place is absolutely beautiful. You feel like you are on a house boat you are so close to the water.

We enjoyed a beautiful week at the Northwoods Retreat. The house was perfect for our group of 10 and we loved the large porch and waterfront access. Terrific location with access to water sports, work out facilities, pool, tennis and more. Nice large open floor plan and great kitchen.
