Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely beautiful and was equipped as advertised. Jeremiah was very responsive to our needs - he had to run us out some propane for the grill as the tank was empty. We had a late dinner on the first night (had to wait for charcoal to get hot), but that was the only issue all week! We had 2 families - no kids under the age of 19. We enjoyed the lake (fishing and tubing), the awesome back yard for games and beautiful view from the house and deck. The lake is pretty weedy and not very nice for swimming. Very relaxing, very clean. We will be back!

We our so happy you enjoyed some great family time in such a wonderful setting, and that we met your expectations regarding the home and amenities.

Great Family Get away!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, 9 kids ages 2-13, and 8 adults, had a fantastic week at this beautiful place. The house was amazing - spacious and comfortable. The fish were biting so we caught several walleye and northern to have a fish fry early in the week. Being on the smaller part of the lake was great for skiing and tubing as well. Morning coffee on the porch and an evening soak in the hot tub was a typical start and end to our days. Owner and caretaker communicated well and we had no issues with the facilities. An excellent week - we will be back!

Far Outweighed Expectations

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was absolutely amazing! We had our group of guys show up late Friday night and everything was ready for us to settle in for a fantastic weekend.

Owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable and hassle free. Not to mention the communication was incredible. Prompt and pertinent emails made the entire rental process a breeze, even from another country!

Fish were biting all weekend, and the spa was a prefect way to unwind at the end of the day.

Yard was big enough for all sorts of activities including a football game.

Everything about our stay was perfect!

Only thing one could possibly have an issue would be mosquitos, but that's nature, and it is Minnesota..... Suck it up put on a little spray and get ready for one of the most unforgettable stays in your life.

Our group would return in a heartbeat. Some of us even contemplated never leaving!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
The 4.5 hour drive was well worth it for the beautiful house and grounds we found when we got there. We went up to snowmobile and were able to get easy access to the trails, and the trails were great. After long days of snowmobiling we sat in the hot tub and relaxed and warmed up. The house is very spacious and welcoming. It was everything we wanted and much more. We will for sure make this a yearly trip.
The property manager was very helpful with our questions and he had the house and garage all nice warm when we arrived. The gift basket was a nice touch and the candy was incredible. Thank you, thank you for everything.

Had a Blast!!

  • 5 of 5
After a 5 hr drive to meet up with friends for a long weekend of snowmobiling, we were very impressed to settle into this very spacious & beautiful home. The snowmobiling was fantastic- able to pick up trails right from the house & the trails were smooth & very scenic. Especially since it was a cold weekend, we really enjoyed being able to come back to the house & immediately head for the outdoor hot tub!! Took the chill right out of us & we even got to see deer run on the edge of the lake in front of the house while we were in the hot tub- just awesome!! Later we cozied up on the big sofas with the fireplace going in the great room. The whole environment was relaxing & the open concept made it easy for everyone to stay in the conversation. There are plenty of bedrooms & bathrooms so everyone had their own privacy as well. We enjoyed board games that were provided & the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to prepare your meals. The house was very clean & had a beautiful view. This was great for winter recreation, but I can imagine summer on this lake too. We'll maybe have to check that time of year out too!! To the owners- thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!
