Sunset Cove was great. Took our kids there for 8 years in a row. Safe beach, shallow walk out for quite a ways which is good for smaller children, (may have to watch for the occassional rocks ) Great Sunsets!, out of the wind etc from the lake and quick access to safe / calmer water when there are windy days. Good fishing in south end of Bay area, but it can be rocky so watch if you have your own boat,. A number of cottages to choose from, several on the water and others set-back. Docking available for your own boat and/or you can rent from them. Summer rates for a water front, 2 bedroom with screened in front porch (Cottage #5) were in the $1200 range for the week, but in this economy they may be negotiable. They are 'cottages', Not glamourous houses or settings, but we also tried places like the Waltonian Inn (out on the lake - newer, nicer looking) but there was no cottage atmosphere etc. We went back to Sunset Cove.
