Great house with plenty of room. Cool and clean. Several seating areas, a room for kids with video games and toys. If you go during the heat of the summer, the water is pretty warm in the lake. If you don't have a boat, you may not want to swim. But it's beautiful and we enjoyed the town of Burton too. Great French dinner.
