The cabin is located right next to the main house, seperated only by the paved driveway, so there is no seclusion or privacy. The "country road" you need to cross to get to the water is actually a well travelled two lane blacktop. The "screened porch" was filled with mosquitos when we arrived, due to the open gaps at both top and bottom. Once inside we went to hang our jackets on the wall hooks behind the door, only to see multiple spiders scatter from said hooks! Upon closer inspection of the cabin we found cobwebs and spiderwebs galore (walls & ceilings), mildew on the shower curtain, and a dirty stove top. On top of that, the bed was so short that even with my head firmly up against the headboard, my feet extended out over the foot board! I am tall, at 6' 4"......but, really? On a positve note, Bruce seemed very nice and pleasant over the phone, which, other than e-mail was our only contact with him. We loaded our stuff back up and left that same evening. Quite a letdown from what we expected after reading the reviews and looking at the pictures.
