Another great stay with beautiful views
This time we rented all three houses on the property. Each is decorated so well, clean and comfortable. The views are outstanding right on Lake of the Pines. A flat bottom boat, kayak and canoe are available at the waters edge. Tom and Katherine are a stones throw away if you need anything. I can’t say enough about how clean and well stocked you will find these properties.
