Restaurant
“This restaurant has great casual outdoor drinking at the gazebo bar and dining on the large patio. Inside there is also a large bar and dining room. It's a great space to watch the boats go by in the summertime! ”

Point of Interest
“Flatwater Paddle Co. is a great place to rent a kayak and paddle on motorboat free waters. Airbnb insists on labelling this entry "Greenwood Lake Paddleboards" so i guess they're affiliated with the local kayak rental place. Kayaking on Greenwood Lake is best on weekdays, when there's less boat traffic. ”
