The house can handle 10 people. We had 5 adults and 2 younger children. The kitchen was stocked with what we needed for the week. Bedding was clean with extra bedding, just in case. The dining room table is huge. There is a sitting room near the fireplace and a large living room. Two Large TV's. There is a good sized covered deck and then a second deck off from that that is just as big but is open air. If you have small children, bring your child gates. We put one at the top of the stair from the second floor bedrooms, blocked off stair way off the lower deck and gated the stairway off the upper deck. There are paddle boards, a kayak and a paddle boat for you to use. The covered boat lift can handle up to a 20 foot boat. We had a great week and would not hesitate to stay again.
