Interaction with Guests
I would be very happy to answer any of your questions ahead or during your stay. I live out of state so I cannot be there to meet you in person.
House is set back from most of the others allowing more green space for kids to run around and a more privacy. Bring your croquet set, horseshoes, football, etc. And you have a beautiful lake view from the main deck. Its also fun to take your boat to the restaurants on the lake. The town of Balsam Lake offers events throughout the summer and winter season, too, such as fireworks, parades, derby car smash up, ice car racing, snowmobile races, etc.
No public transit
