A week at the Hennepin House proved to be a perfect background for our once-a-year summer family get together. There was plenty of room for six adults and two children. We really enjoyed the solitude. While sitting on the deck or on the dock, we felt as if we had the entire lake to ourselves. We were treated to the sights of eagles soaring over the lake during the day and were serenaded by the loons during our evening gatherings around the fire pit. We made use of both the kayak and canoe and our grandsons (ages 7 and 11) spent hours in the lake on the provided inner tubes. The conditions were first-rate. Location perfect. Made a day trip to nearby Itasca State Park where we rented a pontoon, had a picnic and did the walk across the the Mississippi that is a 'must' for all park visitors. Although a private location, Bemidji is only 20 minutes away for shopping, entertainment, groceries, etc. We all decided before we left that we would love to return to the same location next year.
