My friends and I celebrated a bachelor party at this site. It was very nice to have running water as well as a bathroom and shower. The outdoor kitchenette had everything we needed for cooking meals. I would definitely come back to this site!

We had a great time at Teresa's little hideaway. The queen size bed was perfect for our 78-year-old Nana. She doesn't do well, understandably, in a sleeping bag or on an air mattress. There was plenty of room for the other eight of us to pinch four tents. All the essentials were provided and the shower and the flushing toilet might have spoiled me for life when camping. There was a problem one day with the water. I emailed Teresa and her husband was out within the hour to do a quick fix. A+ for customer service. I was a little bummed there was no swimming at the lake but we went down and rented kayaks and that was a lot of fun for the kiddos. Long driveway is great for throwing a football or riding dirt bikes and I will definitely bring my own kayaks. We would definitely come back again.
