First and foremost the owner is very quick to respond and answer any questions which is important to me. The cabin is clean and if you're like us when we go to the lake we spend very little time inside. So the fact that's it's a little older made no difference to us. The outside area is a bit messy, with that being said, this year has had epic long lasting flooding so I feel much of the mess is due to this. The covered dock is great for overnight docking. Being in a covered slip means a lot to me. If you are going to use the sofa bed take some sheets, we couldn't find any and fortunately took our own set just in case. If you have little kids watch them on the dock walkway, there are few missing boards, which I'm sure is a result of the flooding also and most likely will be fixed soon. We would stay here again.
