Our group was 6 adults and 8 children ranging in age from 1.5 to 8. The home accommodated our group perfectly. Three levels of living, fantastic audio visual setup and a very functional kitchen that made large group meals very workable.
The owner has a pontoon you can rent at a reasonable rate and a dock that will accommodate another boat if you have your own. Public access is very close and convenient to the home.
Unfortunately the weather was unseasonably cool, so we did not get to enjoy the lake for swimming as we had envisioned. The lake is just less than 1200 acres and is quite clear, although not short on weeds. If your goal is to enjoy swimming and water sports make plans to have use of a boat. The home does not have a beach area and has a significant flight of stairs down to the lake. Wabedo is connected to Little Boy, which is another very nice lake.
The home has a very nice fire pit, bring collapsible chairs if you plan to make campfires a nightly occurrence. They have nice seats carved out of logs, but not ideal if you like to enjoy a fire for a few hours before bed.
Longville is a great small town with a grocery store, gas station, ice cream shop, and Wednesday turtle races which our children loved. Brainerd is less than an hour drive and allowed for a couple of rounds of golf at Deacons Lodge for the dads and a trip to the Spa for the mom’s at Grandview Lodge. Walker is a 40 minute drive, worth a day trip or dinner.
My family of five children, 12-19, loved our stay in this home. We were comfortably able to be with my brother and his family as well as my parents, and we all had a grand time. The accomodations were great and we were able to use the fine kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances for nearly all of our meals. It was nice to be able to spread out to the deck and two indoor eating areas. The pool table was a great indoor activity for everyone, and we really enjoyed the beautiful view from all of the lovely large windows. We also had fun building a campfire in the designated area and using the boat provided for a reasonable fee. The whole experience gave us the enjoyment of being able to have fun outdoors with the accomodations of home. I would recommend visiting nearby Walker to enjoy the small town specialty shops, restaurants and beautiful Leech Lake. The seating on the dock is a great place to watch all the sailboats on the water.
Loved it!! the property owner also rents out a pontoon boat it made are vacation that much better house was very clean all new appliances lots of room there is a property management company that was also very helpful with all your vacation needs
Property was a little pricey, but worth every penny. The listing was accurate, there were more amenities than expected. Many nice touches such as supplies of cleaning materials, soap, shampoo, and other items we did not expect. Property was clean and beautifully maintained; there were large flat screened tvs. The manager was helpful. In addition to these matters the following made the property outstanding for me. My intent was to have my children and grandchildren together for the first time in years. I have kids on both coasts and in Minnesota. The location of the property was perfect. It was remote from the touristy, suburban like, Brainerd-Baxter area and in the woods. Very little traffic on gravel road leading to and by the property, it was quiet - we heard loons day and night - fishing was good both from the pontoon and from the pier. The amenities in the house were outstanding. Kitchen appliances were Viking heavy duty making meal prep easy. Lots of room to spread out. The loft has a good pool table and the cues had all their tips. Everything worked. TV and Internet hookups worked. (I'd like to do away with all electronic communications on vacation but the younger set gets nervous if they can't text etc.) Cell phone service for Verizon worked well. (Although I turned mine off.) Lake Wabedo is small but adequate. Never saw more than two boats other than our on the lake at one time. Only saw one jet ski for a short time. The pontoon was a bargain. Can't say enough good about this property. I would recommend it to friends and family. It fitted our needs perfectly. However, there are a couple of considerations that might make the property unattractive for some. There is no beach that many would want. The stairs to the pier are long and might be difficult for elderly persons or anyone suffering from coronary or pulmonary problems. Nearby Longville is small with few attractions such as shopping or movies; restaurants are small town standard. If you seek "fine dining" and those trendy little shops selling kitch, this probably isn't the place. Overall - great place.
