Additional notes from the owner

The cleaning fee varies, based on how many man hours it takes--it is really $25/hour and ranges from the minimum of $150 to $350, depending on the condition in which guests leave the camp.
In the off season, only four of the bedrooms and the kitchen have heat. Two of the others come off the kitchen and are reasonably warm. The living room has a large fireplace but a high ceiling and no heat. The off season rate is somewhat negotiable, depending on the size of the party and the length of stay.
There are two canoes in the boathouse for guests' use. There is parking for up to four cars.
