Kristen encouraged my husband and I to feel totally welcome in her lovely house while she was away and we did.
The spot is totally enchanting. We spent most of our time sitting on the dock looking out at the lake. We saw eagles and osprey catching fish and caught sight of and heard the loons, which make a haunting sound at night.
We had a great time taking Kristen's canoe, which has oars, across the lake (though we should have taken an extra paddle so I could help my husband get us back home after the wind whipped up). We also enjoyed the firepit one of the nights we were there.
The beds were comfy and we got several good night's sleep.
The AT&T phone coverage was spotty but the wifi worked fine for us to get online and get our email.
We will definitely return if we have a chance!
