    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is swimming off our dock, fishing, beautiful sunsets, forests and waterfalls. The lake has a great variety of wildlife (fish and fowl) and water plants. It is a wonderful environment to work and play. We have a lot of knowledge about the history and geography of our area. In the winter, there are ski hills and skating about 35 minutes away. You can cross country ski or snowshoe around our lake or on the trails.
