About Steve & Jackie Eichmiller

Steve and Jackie Eichmiller were drawn to Vergas, Minnesota by family history. August Eichmiller, Steve's grandfather, was one of the original settlers of the town. Having vacationed every year in the area, they grew to love its serene beauty. This is where they established their business 'August Retreats' to offer you the same experience.

Why Steve & Jackie Eichmiller chose Vergas

Steve and Jackie Eichmiller have loved the lakes area of northwestern Minnesota for years. In 1996, they decided to call it home when they moved from the suburbs of Minneapolis to Vergas, Minnesota. Now, they wish to share with others their enthusiasm for Minnesota and, especially, for the beautiful lakes it offers.

Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so much more than you would expect from a cottage rental. The pictures definately do not do it justice. Everything was new and high quality and spotless. It had everything you could imagine that you might need, from every kitchen tool needed to make a gourmet meal, to all towels, soap, paper products, gas BBQ, AC, nice outdoor furniture, screened in porch. The cottage is right on the lake with a beautiful yard and a nice walk down the stairs to the lake. We enjoyed the little deck with barstools overlooking the water halfway down to the dock. There are many restaurants, golf courses, etc. within a easy drive. We really enjoyed Spanky's, which is a short drive. Four adults stayed, but there was plenty of room for more guests. We didn't want to leave. Thanks Jackie & Steve for a wonderful stay! Would definately stay again and recommend to friends!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in the door, we immediately felt at home and ready to start our family reunion/vacation. This beautiful house met all of our expectations. The house had all the rooms that we needed to spread out and was supplied with everything we needed. We spent a lot of time in the huge yard, playing games and sitting around the fire pit. Most of our time was spent sitting on the dock, swimming and fishing in this extremely clean lake. The upper deck seating near the lake and the decks at the house provided many opportunities for us to gather. The owners helped us when we called with questions, otherwise left us alone to enjoy the place.

Vergas was a delightful town which offered a sandy beach (for my grandson), shops, and a destination restaurant called "Spanky's"

I would highly recommend this rental property and we hope to return next year. It was the perfect place for our family.

This property was just what we were hoping for. Clean, comfortable, and had all the items to make you feel at home. The owners were very nice and gave us information about the area. Sybil lake is a very clear lake and the fishing was good. Vergas is a nice small town with everything we needed. I would definately recommend this property.

Lake Place

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! I found this place for my family for a wedding. We loved it! We liked it so much that we are making it a tradition to rent it for one week every summer. The place is gorgeous and the owners are very nice people. Can't wait to go back in June!

Our family of seven truly enjoyed our carefree week at the lake. The hosts are very helpful and accomodating, the home is incredibly clean and spacious, and the lake is refreshing, clear and quiet.

We feel fortunate to have found the perfect "August Retreat."
