I officially retired at the end of December, 2011 and Shana (my wife) is semi-retired (4 months each winter). We have a home in Playa Del Carmen which is our winter place. We love the lake house, which we built in 2009, but need extra income to make our dream come true. Lakehouse in the Summer and Mexico in the Winter!

John Krainicuik purchased this chalet in 2009

Our vacation home is located 110 km (70 miles) NW of Winnipeg, just 10 km East of Lac Du Bonnet. You get just the right mix of people and quiet time...on the long weekends, it gets busy, then back to quiet during the week. Nearby, you'll find Pinawa Dam Provincial Park with hiking trails or check out the suspension bridge and hiking/biking trails near Pinawa. We have been coming here for 14 years, in a trailer/cabana for 11 years and now in a beautiful lake home. The water is beautiful for swimming, tubing, waterskiing, fishing or just floating in a lounger by the dock. Our neighbours are great and because we are in cottage country, everyone is friendly.

There's something special about getting up early in the morning and walking down to the water when it is still and calm like a giant mirror. Even sitting at the table on the deck enjoying your morning coffee with the birds is an unbelievably relaxing way to start your day. There is a provincial park (a 5-minute drive or a 15 minute canoe paddle) which is an old dam with hiking trails throughout (well worth the trip). If you are feeling energetic, the Trans-Canada Trail starts at the dam and goes all the way to the town Pinawa as it follows the Channel (about 14 km). In Lac Du Bonnet, you can go for Chinese food at the Lakefront Hotel or if chicken or pizza is more your fancy, Chicken Chef is a great choice. There is also a Subway and restaurants for dining at 4 hotels in town. There are 3 Golf courses nearby, Pinawa Golf and Country Club, Granite Country Club (both 18-hole) and Black bear, a nice 9-hole course; all have a club-house and restaurant.

What a great start to the summer!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by renting this beautiful vacation home at Lac Du Bonnet. The weather may not have been perfect for the full 2 weeks but our accommodations certainly were. This is a wonderful place for couples or a family to rent, especially if you want to be near the water. The house itself has everything you could possibly need (and more) and is so spacious & well looked after. The beds were comfy and the appliances & BBQ worked great. So nice to have use of their canoe & pedal boat whenever we wanted to be out on the water. This location is wonderful for golfers as well. There are 2 beautiful, 18 hole golf courses within about a 15 minute drive of the chalet (Pinawa & Granite Hills). There is also a short 9 hole course right close by. There is good grocery shopping, a liquor store and a fantastic bake shop (try their homemade soup for lunch & be sure to buy some of their bread, cookies & cinnamon buns) right in Lac Du Bonnet. Make sure you drive over to the Old Pinawa Dam and take time to walk out along the stones. We got some great pictures and it is only a couple of miles away. The dam at Seven Sisters was a bit longer drive but was also well worth seeing . We would highly recommend this rental property to everyone. It is very well set-up for 3 couples to share, and if you were splitting the cost, would end up being very reasonably priced considering everything it has to offer. Thanks again John for finding the time to take us out on your pontoon boat and giving us a tour along the river. You have a beautiful home and we were so fortunate to be able to stay there for 2 weeks of the summer!

On Site - Out of Sight

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from this property last evening. Every thing about this home is top notch. The owners are on site and that was a very comforting thing for our party of four women who don't know much about many things! The owners are simply amazing. I have rented many times through VRBO and my experiences have always been good but John and Shana are exceptional people and they absolutely go out of their way to make the experience a really good one for those of us lucky enough to stay there. There is nothing missing in this property - and the home is very well appointed in every aspect. If you are looking for quality at a fair price you won't do better - that is my guarantee! I am already planning to go back next year if they will have me - a better place close to home would be pretty much impossible to find. This couple go out of their way to make your stay at their home much like being at home - beds are great - pillows too - that is always an issue for me but it was nothing but great at this home. I am so happy that John and Shana are willing to share their home with people like me who don't have what they have - their willingness to take a risk on renters is simply a great opportunity for those of us who enjoy what they have worked so hard for. Thank you both for a wonderful week and we will hopefully see you on "MY" deck same time next year. You are a wonderful couple and your home was so appreciated by me and by the friends I shared a week with. Thanks very much - it was a pleasure and a privilege to be there for a week. I hope you get to enjoy some well deserved time in your own home - I can certainly say without a doubt it is a wonderful place to spend quality time. Well done John and Shana and thanks very much for making a week in July of 2014 a memorable one for three 60 year old women!

Onsite Owners Big Part of Enjoyable Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful Chalet for a relaxing, quiet and private vacation with our adult family members. When we saw on the website that there were onsite owners next door, we hesitated a little and then called them. John was extremely personable and Shana just as fun and bubbly. So we went for it. It was well worth the commitment because they were part of what made our experience more than we imagined. They were rarely seen except when we needed something or when they had something to offer us! We enjoyed our talks on the lawn, in the garage or when rarely passing them at the dock. They were ever so generous with all their accessories to make this the most memorable, easy, comfortable vacations ever. We will be staying in touch with them hopefully, and meet again for another visit (we came all the way from Vancouver) or somewhere in Mexico where they also stay. If you are worried about a stay where owners are close, do not even consider that this would put a damper on your vacation. They were gracious, interesting, fun and caring people who only want people to enjoy their paradise as much as they do. Do it... You will not regret it! We missed them the moment we left.

Family fun at the cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an excellent time at John & Shana's cabin. The cabin was very clean, well stocked with linens and kitchen items, and had lots of room for our 2 families (4 adults and 2 babies). It is a beautiful cabin! We enjoyed relaxing on the large deck and fishing & swimming off the dock. There are floating chairs and toys that are fun to float on in the water. In the evening, we enjoyed watching movies in the basement on the large t.v. There was ample seating for all of us. They even had a few baby items (swing set & booster seat with tray) that worked great for our little families.
John and Shana were fantastic hosts! They were non-intrusive and made us feel right at home. John took us on a wonderful boat ride out to Pinawa Dam. They even arranged to drop off some baby items that we accidentally left behind. We can not speak highly enough of this lovely couple!

A beautiful Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the great pleasure of staying at John and Shana's beautiful cottage for 2 weeks. There were 6 adults staying there and we found that we had more than enough space to relax and enjoy all the amenities that the cottage had to offer.Relaxing on the wrap around deck or heading down to the dock to enjoy the great swimming or try out the slide . If you wanted to be in the sun or shade you had that choice down by the water or on the deck.The location of the cottage was peaceful and quiet,if you needed anything it was a short drive to Lac Du Bonnet ,If you wanted to check out Old Pinawa Dam it was only 10 mins away which is very interesting to see. If you like golf there are 3 courses very close.
When we first arrived we were greeted by John and Shana ,who were very friendly and very informative about the cottage and the surrounding area . Looking forward to coming back next year or possibly sooner for more relaxation and seeing our new friends.

Thanks again John and Shana for a great holiday !
