Thank your for sharing your home. We enjoyed the boat and the wonderful views. We even saw a deer right by our cars. The hot tub was great for the cooler nights, as was the fire pit. We all tried the kayaks - how peaceful! Thanks again Dave, Linda, Dan, Steph, Adam and Beck - Brownsburg, IN
We had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful. Although we didn't catch any fish, we had fun trying. We had 4 generations this week ages 1 to 86 and there was something fun for everyone to do. Thanks. The Schinkai family
The cabin is amazing and the time spent here was lovely. The boats and great layout of the place and hot tub made the week restful and enjoyable for all of us. Thank you so much - VanDykes
