Entertainment includes a flat-screen TV with BluRay/DVD player. Your hosts admit that TV reception can be iffy in this remote wooded area, so there are plenty of hit movies inside from which our guests may select. Phone service is also iffy at best, as guests are in the north woods and far from the cell towers. Phones do work, however, in Channing. One of most repeated comments in reviews are the joy families find when they stay with us, and no longer are slaves to their phones & emails - finally enjoying time together as the family.was meant. You will find that the need for the digital "stuff" wears off quickly. And it's a short trip to the site where you can check your Emails and phone messages as needed without being hounded while relaxing at the Lake.
