Relaxing family vacation at a beauitful location

  • 5 of 5
We had a large family gathering of 16 people, ages ranging from 2-67 years old, this past July. It was a wonderful vacation that will never be forgotten. My parents-in-law took the family on this vacation to celebrate their recent retirement. We were all very excited to see the vacation home, but the pictures did not do the place justice!! This home had even more room than the photos depicted. Everyone had their own beds, all of which were comfortable. The open floor plan on the main level made for easy conversation while preparing lunch or dinner. We enjoyed dining inside and outside on the patio. The furnishings were very comfortable and everyone felt at home. We especially enjoyed watching the evening thunderstorm from the living room, with it's impressive 2 story windows! We loved spending most of the day on Lake O'Brien. It was gorgeous with a white, sandy beach and crystal clear water. The clarity was amazing!! The kids loved watching the bald eagle, loons, and the porcupine that was in the wooded area. Bonnie and Greg were great to work with and made the rental process a breeze. Bonnie was very patient with us as we had many questions as our arrival date approached. I would definitely recommend this property. You can tell the owner cares and it shows! We hope to be back soon! Thanks for a wonderful vacation filled with many happy memories!

Perfect for family reunions and vacations!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a full week during a family reunion. There was 17 of us here the whole week and the cabin was the perfect retreat for all of us - it never felt cramped. There were plenty of rooms and the open concept kitchen was perfect for large gatherings during dinner, lunch, etc. The kitchen is well stocked with pretty much everything you could possibly need. There is also wireless internet and it easy handled all of our macbooks, iphones, ipads, etc., which was really convenient as well. All of the rooms are nicely updated and the cabin is just gorgeous - you can really tell Greg and Bonnie care about their property. It also has one of the nicest beaches/docks on Cross Lake, so it was super nice to be able to walk out on the beach or boat without having to get in your car and go anywhere.

One of my favorite activities was walking out in the morning with my coffee and enjoying the beautiful weather in the sun with my family! The lake water is also very clear and we frequently saw bass and minnows in the water when we went swimming, which was really fun for the kids. The pontoon boat is also very easy to operate and works well, so if you like boating or fishing, this is a good place for you...just use common sense when operating all the equipment.

Being from a big city (DC), I also appreciated being able to walk out on the dock late at night and star gazing with my family. I rarely ever see the night sky that clearly where I live. Also, thunderstorms are really fun to watch in the living room because the windows are so big! :)

The neighborhood itself is very quiet and private. Neighbors are generally respectful and keep to themselves. I was also able to do 5Ks every morning through the neighborhood roads, which are well paved and free from busy traffic. Just be sure you wear a lot of bug repellant when visiting the MN woods! There is also a fire pit, which is perfect for roasting marshmallows!

I had so much fun here and wish the week wouldn't have gone by so quickly! The owners are also very professional and will quickly answer questions if you have them.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
A year ago we began making plans to celebrate our retirement by doing something special with our children and grandchildren. We began searching for places and my daughter-in-law found this cabin on the internet. It looked good to all of us so we booked it. What a blessing that turned out to be! In the fourth week of July 2014 we headed for the cabin on lake O'Brian. There were 16 of us ranging in ages from 2-67 years. There were comfortable beds for all of us enough bathrooms, and space enough that everyone was very comfortable all the time. The cabin was clean and nicely furnished.the kitchen was fun to cook in and we enjoyed eating together in the spacious eat-in kitchen or on the lovely patio. We had so much fun riding around the lake on the pontoon boat, fishing, and swimming at the very nice beach area.Watching the eagles soar overhead, spotting the loons on the lake, and seeing a porcupine in the woods along the edge of the driveway added natural beauty to the place. The caretakers and owners were easy and pleasant to with which to work. Together is the perfect place to be we agree, and this cabin was the perfect place for us to be together. We had so much fun and truly hope to return someday. My grandson said it well when he said,"This is the best vacation ever."

Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin over Memorial Day weekend. There was a group of 7 thirty - fourty-something year old couples from the Twin Cities Metro area. This was the perfect cabin getaway weekend for us. We were blessed with amazing weather for the weekend and the outside area of the cabin couldn't have been more perfect. We brought a boat with for skiing and tubing. The lake was a little small for it but it didn't matter because everything else was so great and we were happy to just be able to get out on the water. There was room for virtually our whole group to lay out on the dock and we spent a good amount of our afternoons there. The patio area was great too. We ate all of our meals outside and had drinks every afternoon / evening on the patio. There is a beautiful firepit on the side of the house that we took full advantage of also! (Bring some bag chairs!)
That is our review of the outside of the cabin. Now for the inside. The kitchen is amazing!!!!! They did not cut any corners here! We were lucky enough to have a professional chef in our group and it was so fun to have such a beautiful place for him to prepare meals. The living area, dining room and kitchen are all one big open space which is nice for spending time together. There was plenty of sleeping space and bathrooms for all 14 of us. We never felt cramped or like we were on top of each other. Everything in this cabin says quality!!
We found a car service to pick us up by van one night and take us into town to go out and then bring us back at the end of the night. It was a ton of fun!!
I can't say enough about how beautiful this cabin is and how relaxing it was to be there. It was exactly what we were looking for and I really hope we can find the time to get back there as a group again next summer. It was worth every penny!! Thank you Greg for the amazing memories you gave to our group!!

60th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful location to celebrate our parent's 60th wedding anniversary. The bedrooms were well appointed for adult couples...queen beds vs. twins/futons, plus, the cabin rental included a pontoon which was very important to us. We enjoyed the deck, dock, fire pit, and screened porch. Lake O'Brien, is clean, quaint, and quiet. We caught fish right off the dock, plus, we enjoyed lake cruises and fishing outings in the pontoon. We enjoyed many Loon and Bald Eagle sightings too. I would highly recommend this to others and consider a return visit.
