We stayed at one of the cabins right on the lake - quiet, secluded, glorious!! Not the best choice for families with younger children (there are other cabins up near the pool and play area, and this cabin is very remote from those), but wonderful for adults. Owners were extremely friendly. Be aware, however, that the entire lake and area were ravaged by a fire (caused by a car backfire) a decade ago, and the skeletons of the pines are all around the lake. It's SO much better than it was 5 years ago, tho - aspens are growing up where the pines were, so there are signs of new life.
