You can jump off the dock or use the swim ladder to cool off in the clear lake water, or have some fun on the water trampoline.

We have never done a home exchange before and would hope to find a reliable, trustworthy couple/family to exchange homes for a vacation. We would respectfully treat your home as our own and look for the same in exchange. We would be happy to find a long-term friendship out of the exchange! We reside in Toronto, Canada and in addition to our property in the wild; we have a house available for further exchange in the City of Toronto metropolis. Sylvia & Jack
