About Michael Marzolf

My wife and I have been part-time residents of Park Rapids Lakes Area since 2005.

Having camped in the area as kids, coming back was so exciting! We appreciate that the area is low-key, and quieter than the Brainerd area, but still there is plenty to do.

We are both avid cyclists and runners, and REALLY appreciate the Heartland Trail (49 miles paved). We also are triathletes, and take part in the Northwoods Triathlon each year.

We hope you enjoy our cabin and the Park Rapids Area as much as we have, and that you come back to build more family memories!

Michael Marzolf purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Michael Marzolf chose Park Rapids

We purchased this home on Big Sand as a legacy property, one that will be in our family forever. As you will see, it is in beautiful shape, ready to be enjoyed. We are interested in having you stay if you are interested in taking care of it too -- that way it will be just as nice when you return next year :-)

Incredible getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is amazing! We had a wonderful stay! My wife and I brought our brood up for a week of bonding and relaxation. It worked out perfectly! The cabin is cozy and yet roomy enough. We had a total of 9 adults, 3 teenage boys and an 8 year old boy. We made full use of all the beds and the couches with no sleeping complaints from anyone. The cabin is well stocked from the dishes to the bath towels. No need to pack too much! The decks and the large outdoor table worked well for large meals together and relaxing. Large pines tower over the deck, covering the terrain as it drops sharply to the unbelievably crystal clear waters of Big Sand. The bottom of the entire lake is clean sand. The area around the dock was perfect for enjoying the water. It is shallow with the bottom gradually tapering out. From 2 1/2' at the end of the dock to about 5' a few hundred feet from shore. After that the lake drops quickly to 65'. I recommend checking Google Earth for a little insight to the lakes erratic under water structure. From a boat or the provided canoe the lake offers some great under water views, almost aquarium like. The canoe was a big hit by all and rarely sat idle. After a day in the water we enjoyed a nice warm fire. The fire pit and surrounding chairs made out of tree limbs gave a great woodsy feel. Of course, we used the firewood, fire starters and s' mores ingredients graciously provided by our hosts. Deer and turkey sightings were a plenty and the local shops and eateries were fun. Overall, I would highly recommend this cabin. Thanks to the Marzolf family for sharing their newly found treasure and hospitality.

Great place, great friends, great times

  • 4 of 5
The cabin/house was very comfortable and everything was in excellent/working condition (ie, the gas grill) and a nice dock to accomodate a boat or two. There was plenty of comfortable space inside and comfortable beds (we had 7 in our group - each had our own bed and 3 of us had our own room) with a great dining room & table to enjoy a big meal. The deck was a perfect setting for an evening BBQ with a sunset view of the lake the lake as it's backdrop. The owner (Michael) was very thoughtful of all our needs and easy to work with - you could tell he really cared about our experience - I'll be back! The property felt very secluded to other properties and the only thing we could hear at night was the calling of loons on the lake. I would recommend this property for any group looking to spend some time at a nice, quet, relaxing lake place. Georgeous - absolutely georgeous.

Wonderful cabin in great condition with lots of space and nice owners

Our family had a great experience on our vacation. We appreciated the firewood ready for our use, games to play, gas grill, clean cabin, and convenient location. The one challenge is the long stairway to the dock if someone has difficulty with stairs.

We had our annual family gathering at this beautiful log cabin in the woods. Our family has many traditions that we carryout every year including "hat night", golfing with "major awards", bean bag tournaments and bonfires. We were able to do all this and more at this cabin which provided many thoughtful amenities. Thank you Mike and family.

Awesome Place!!!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cabin on Big Sand Lake. There were 14 of us staying, 3 families with young kids. We all loved the outdoors so much. Kids were outside 24/7 HUge gorgeous pine trees, it's smell, the lake view felt so relaxing. We made smores, kids were riding there scooters. I brought my pantoon and my friend brought his jetski. We had so much fun. I haven't seen any lakes as clear as Big Sand. In fact, my brother-in law and my friend (scuba instructor) are going to have couple of dives tomorrow at Big Sand (can't wait). It is shallow by the dock and it was perfect for kids to swim and us parents not to worry about them. Fishing was great too. We caught largemouth bass and some croppies. This place is elevated, there are a few steps to go up and down, but it made me realize that I need to exercise:) Would definitely come back again soon. By the way, I am already looking for a lot on this lake. Mike always picked up the phone and was super nice and helpful. Thanks again for sharing your place with us

Very nice cabin on a very nice lake!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I took a risk renting this cabin with no reviews....and was rewarded with a great vacation. The cabin was beautiful. The lake was really clear, with plenty of rock bass. There were a few small issues with the cabin, mostly due to the fact it was a new rental, but the owner was extremely responsive in addressing the issues. In one case he even sent air hockey pucks overnight, so my kids could play. I would not hesitate to rent this cabin again.
