We have always loved going to 'The Lake' and enjoying all it has to offer. Whether to a Resort, Lake Home or camping, our family has alway looked forward to our next vacation at 'The Lake'. Fishing has been a passion since I was very young, courtesy of my late Grandfather. Resort owners while I was growing up, I alway was impressed by the way 'family' was always there. Fishing and family was alway a great combination. I have found the only thing I enjoy more than fishing is helping others enjoy it as much as I. Whether teaching, guiding or participating, the feeling is beyond description when I see the smile of someone as they catch their first trophy. My two Grandchildren endured many months of instruction with Grampa to learn to fish Bass. The greatest fishing trip was the weekend that each qualified as Master Anglers with the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame at the ages of 7 & 9 respectively on Birch Lake.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1988

We searched many, many years for the 'right' location for our 'cabin'. Once we found the location that gave us Northwest access to a great lake, but also year round access to the property. We started to build our dream always keeping in mind my Grandparents. The result was what we hoped and realized would be a gathering spot for family and friends throughout the year.

WONDERFUL LAKE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This home was even better than the photos! The lower level family room offered a quiet second spot for conversation. The deck provided dining space for 8, and the lower patio and fire pit areas are beautifully landscaped. The home was exceptionally clean, the kitchen's large frig and gas range made cooking easy, and having laundry on site was super convenient. Everything you could imagine to make the home comfortable was there---from the large stock pot and BBQ tools to the cutting board specifically for fish cleaning. The owner's information book was complete and helpful, and the stack of local brochures made it easy to plan activites. We caught northern and bass even though it was a little late in the summer. We really appreciated having electricity on the dock for recharging the trolling motor too. Thank you, Tom and Carol, for an enjoyable week up north!

WEEKEND RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This place is truly amazing, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay, the house is well furnished, and the selection of current DVD's made for fun movie nights. The wildlife was impressive, multiple deer sightings and a variety of birds, including bald eagles.
We would recommend this place to others, and we are planning to return.

GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILY DOWNTIME

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the cabin for the weekend in February to attend a wedding at the nearby casino. We were thrilled with our choice to steer clear of the casino hotel & rent this cabin. It had all of the amenities of a fully stocked residence. We have stayed at several cabins found on VBRO & this one definitely was the best stocked from kitchen utensils to bedding to bathroom linens to videos. We didn't want for anything. Also, the cabin is a great condition & very clean. We would love to stay there again.

Lastly the owner was a pleasure to deal with. The process of securing the cabin was streamlined & easy. All communications were prompt. And on top of all this he was very flexible and generous about check in/check out times due to severely cold weather. While we did have an issue with water pressure while we were there due to the extreme cold (-20 NOT including wind chill) Tom was very helpful even to the point of starting to drive up to help out.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! Very quiet and serene -- but with the comforts of home. The house was very well stocked with everything imaginable -- even all the linens. The laundry facilities were very helpful. We went home with no laundry to do. We definitely loved the deck for cards and quiet evenings. The fire pit was especially enjoyable. What a perfect setting. We went as a "four generation" family, and everyone totally enjoyed themselves. Tom is very accomodating and so helpful. Thank you for everything!!!

GOLF AND RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
Tom and Carol you did such a wonderful job on your home. We were very comfortable we had our yearly get together for our dad and brothers birthdays. The guys went out golfing on both Friday and Saturday, one time to Walker and the other to Brainard. Oh, yeh my sister in law and I did nothing but lounge, relax and enjoy the views What a beautiful home. We had a total of 6 people, 2 couples and two guys, everyone enjoyed themselves and you can bet we will do it again next year. Next year for a week, this year was only 3 days.
Thank Tom and Carol for opening your home up to us.

VACATION STAY

  • 5 of 5
Thanks very much to Tom and Carol for such a wonderful vacation we had! We will be back! We agree with previous reviews that the pictures are accurate but that the real thing is even better. The home is very well thought out and has absolutely all the amenities and comforts one could think of indoors and out. The home is very clean, well-organized, and located within very close proximity to many lakes, to Hackensack, and to the Walker area. The outdoors layout with an upper deck, lower patio, firepit area (and firewood), and lake area were excellent. Skies were clear and full of stars and we heard loons, bullfrogs, and beavers. Our friends' kids had a blast catching endless sunnies at the dock. The extra carpad area was very helpful as well.
