Beautiful lake shore luxury cabin in garden style setting. Some of the best pheasant and deer hunting in the midwest. Great place for family to relax and enjoy all water sports or just unwind. Great midwest hospitality in a rural setting!
Take time to get back to nature. Bring the whole family. Although we don't allow smoking inside the cabin, you are welcome to enjoy a smoke from the patio or outdoors. Great place for young children to play in a custom playhouse perfect for hours of entertainment.
The owner was quite friendly and helpful. The garage house is in nice shape. However....in a house advertised for 12 people, THERE IS NO RANGE which is not obvious in the web listing. Tough to cook for 2 people, let alone 12 on hot plates and a microwave. Also, there is no dining room table....only two card tables and chairs. The only permanent dining seating is two barstools at a bar. The Wifi was slower than dial up. Only 6-8 drinking glasses in the whole house for 12 guests. Hotel size refrigerator. The TV was very small and not visable from the living room couches...only from two very comfortable lounge chairs. Guess the other 10 guests are supposed to sit on the floor.
Other than these very odd items, the house itself is quite nice. Large yard, dock, firepit, right on the lake. The pictures are a bit deceiving though. The "cabin" is really a living unit built with a garage that is attached to the owners house. Not private at all.
So why is this place the way it is....the welcome book says it best. The "cabin" was built to provide extra sleeping quarters for the owners family and for that purpose, it is great. As a stand alone rental, it lacks many of the basic things one would expect and not even think to ask about. I don't discourage you from renting this "cabin", however, I think it appropriate for you to understand what you will find upon arrival.
We recently completed a 10 day stay at this property. The place is simply outstanding in every way. Excellent service form the property owners. A beautiful setting on the shores of Lake Herman. The cabin was modern and comfortable and all of the amenities were as described in the listing. The people were very pleasant and provided us with everything we needed as well. This would be an excellent summer vacation destination or simply a fantastic and relaxing break from everyday life. Cannot recommend it highly enough! Thanks for a great time!
I have been hesitant to write a review because we don't really want a lot of people to know about this place!! We have stayed here three times now, and my in-laws have also rented it out. It is wonderful for kids; the property has a lot of yard space for play, and it backs right up to it's own beach and dock. They are well-stocked with toys, movies, and video games. The lake is not busy, and the location is really private and peaceful. The owners are very helpful and accessible. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great getaway!
Truly the best vacation I've had with my wife and daugther. Our best friends joined us and we just had the best time. The accomodations were great and felt as if we lived on the lake.
Great spot for a large group or family! Sleeping arrangements were great and well thought out! Wonderful beds and bedding! Plenty of room for 12-14 adults. Cooking is a challenge but we did it! No cook top or oven in the "mini kitchenett"...so think ahead and you too can do it! Large BBQ grill and electric appliances were available and we made good use of those. The hosts were very helpful but not intrusive...we felt like we had the place to ourselves! Ask for the full tour and list of where things are when you first get there...there are important things hidden all over! The lakeside is set up nicely for lounging, a picnic, paddle boat rides, and the fire pit was a fun activity after dark. We highly recommend this property.
This is a terrific lake property--well-kept and kid friendly. The hosts were most helpful and made every effort to see that we'd have a great experience. Fishing from the dock resulted in lots of fish. Paddleboats were fun. Pontoon boat is available for a fee. Home is fully stocked with games and kitchen necessities. We would recommend this property to families, young adults and mature adults.
