Great location - house sits atop a hill overlooking Curlew Lake. We were fortunate to be there when two bald eagles, who must have had their nest nearby, were teaching their fledgling to fish. For those who are so inclined, the large yard includes an area to play horseshoes, volleyball, and an amazing outdoor fire pit - great for S'mores. We were hoping to use the kayaks but could not figure out how to get them down to the lake shore. There were plenty of things to do, so this was not a big deal for us. The house was very clean and well stocked, although I would recommend bringing bottled water to drink since the tap water was mineral-y tasting.
If you go into the quaint little town of Republic, we highly recommend the Republic Brewery. Great beers and friendly staff as well as friendly customers.
