My wife and I stayed at Joan and Howard's lake house the first week of June. What a beautiful home they have! it is over 6000sq. Ft. and we had total access to the entire upstairs and property. Although they live in the home you would never know it. you feel as though you own the entire place. We only saw them when we needed them for assistance. Restaurant info, grocery shopping advice, where to buy bait, where to golf and the like. All advice was spot on too by the way. 75 degrees, slight breeze and no BUGS in northern Minnesota are you kidding! We has the lake to ourselves every day even on the weekends with never more than two other boats on the water. Caught one fish after another right off their dock and nice size on the lake. Very peaceful and quiet and Howard makes a great fire for you every night to watch the sunset by. The beds are super comfy and Joan has set up your kitchen and grilling station to include everything you will ever need. They even have two parking spots in the garage with remotes for the overhead door for your use. They think of and provide everything you will ever need to enjoy your stay. Added bonus? Joan is an accomplished baker and has fresh bars and cookies when you arrive! Make sure you take home the recipes! Overall, my wife and I have had great experiences with VRBO listings over the last ten years whether it's skiing in Colorado or staying in Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin but this is by far our best experience to date. Check them out. You will not find a better value or experience. I can guarantee you that.
