You won't get to take the boat out for a spin. However, there is plenty to do right where you are when you aren't relaxing in bed or having fun around the firepit.
You can sit out on the beach all day, take a dip in the lake, kayak around the lake, try fishing, and hike the peaceful trails surrounding the area — there are 5 miles of them, to be exact!
