The bathroom will have a bathmat, hand soap and one bath towel for each person. You will need to bring your own beach towel if you plan on swimming in the lake. There are only overhead lights, no side lamps.

You may need to bring comfort items to make the most of your stay including: a reading lamp, a fan (depending on the weather), a robe or slippers. You are responsible for all of your own toiletries.
