My wife and I grew-up in the outdoors - we love to boat, fish, hunt, camp, and sit by the campfire telling stories. Some of our fondest memories as kids growing-up was packing the car to go to Uncle Buzz' cabin on the lake for a week of fun. This experience, and the memories they created, was something my wife and I wanted to pass onto our children. We started with the cabin 'in the middle' but over the years, the owners to our 'right' and to our 'left' wanted to sell their properties. We now have more cabins than we will ever use personally and would like to share them with other families who share our values. Our little 'retreat' now has 6+ acres of privacy and over 575' of level, sandy lakeshore. It is truly our little slice of heaven.....

Dan purchased this cabin in 2001

Lake Pokegama is one of the premier lakes in Minnesota and offers multiple amenities. We are within(6) miles of downtown Grand Rapids, at the end of a quiet dead-end street, and have level lakeshore. The cabin is simple, clean, and has a million dollar view!

You will be challenged to experience all of the lakeshore and waterway in one week. Most of the lake traffic occurs on the weekend's, offering a quiet retreat during the week. When it's windy, there is always a protected bay to enjoy. At the end of the week, it will be tough to go home.

GOOD FAMILY MEMORIES, OVERALL PRICE DOES NOT MATCH APPEARANCE AND MAINTAINANCE OF CABIN.

  • 3 of 5
Our stay granted some great family memories. We enjoyed the slope to the lake, which was nice and flat and close to the cabin. The time we spent cleaning windows so we could get a view of the beautiful lake was disappointing. We baked cookies to make the cabin smell like home, which again created some great memories. The fishing was good and the owners were helpful and friendly. To the owners credit, they had just hired a new cleaning service, so maybe a new cleaning service will assist in improving the stay at Lake Pokegama.

POKEGAMA VACATION

  • 4 of 5
We did enjoy our stay at your home. It was large enough for our group of 11. Although next year we might have 4 more.. It was a little more expensive than our family budget. We did notice your ad says pets are not allowed, but our neighbors had 2 dogs. We did catch fish for a fish fry, and they were good.

GREAT VACATION WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Our two families have been coming to Lake Pokegama for 10 years over the July 4th holiday to visit friends and play on the lake. There are 8 of us total, 4 adults & 4 kids. The Beach House (the larger of the owner's 3 properties) is perfect for our two families, given its two separate living spaces. We didn't use the 2nd kitchen much (but the extra fridge was great!), but we often set the kids up in the 2nd living area for downtime, playing, sleeping, watching TV, etc. The kid's loft is great! Perfect for toddlers and up, the beds were nice and low. It was also nice to be able to have the younger kids nap in one part of the house and not be disturbed by the older kids in the other part of the house.

The DVD player wasn't working while we were there but everything else was just as advertised. We loved having a private dock to tie our boat to. The kids also enjoyed the Rave (water tramp) and the firepit. The beach access from this cabin and the smaller one next to it is wonderful - flat, grassy, no drop-off to the water. So the kids could wade and swim very easily.

The owners were staying in one of the smaller cabins while we were there, and they were great. They made us feel at home and were very sweet to our kids who kept wandering over to say hello ;) They have been making updates and improvements to all of the houses - we can't wait to see what they do next!

Overall it was a great rental, we were glad to find it! It's hard to find rentals on the lake, especially ones this size - 5 bedrooms! Thanks again.

BEST PLACE TO STAY ON POKEGAMA

  • 5 of 5
This is the place to stay if you're coming to Pokegama. We've been up here many times and each time we are awed by the view of the lake. As others have said the level lake shore is a huge plus, as we had little children and senior citizens in our group. Even with the flood of the century the water was clear and had gone down quite a bit from when we arrived. Our family loves fishing and watersports so it was great to have kayaks, the RAVE and a pontoon boat (we rented from the owner) at our disposal.
You couldn't ask for better property owners, they are always upgrading the properties. In this cabin there was new furniture and flooring from the last time we were here. In cabin 3 (VRBO #301888) they remodeled and changed the porch into a living room with all new furniture and a view to die for. In cabin 2 (VRBO #352786) they remodeled the kitchen and living room. I can't wait to see what they do next!
So the bottom line is, if you think you are going to find a better place to stay on Pokegama you're wrong! These 3 places are cute with level lake shore, tons of things to do with great property owners. Next year we are renting all three cabins and the rest of our family from Colorado, Arizona and Florida are joining us.
