Guestbook comments from the owner
I'd planned on emailing you today to tell you what a fabulous time we had. The cabin/house was perfect for us - the family with the kids loved the bunk set up, we all had our own rooms, it was great. We spent most of our time on the deck or down by the dock & on the boat. The fishing was great, especially for the kids. We used the yard as well - had a bonfire, played yard games. It couldn't have been better. Even the weather cooperated - only a little rain one morning. Thank you, also for the bottle of wine - we had 2 birthdays to celebrate so that was perfect. We can't think of anything that should be done differently.



Thanks again for a great place to have a great time. I'd highly recommend it to anyone!

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5
Great place with room for 6 kids downstairs in 3 bunks. Adults on the second floor. The home was well equipped. Needs night lights. There is a steep hill to the lake. The lake is very clear with a nice dock.

Owner's Response: Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. After a long day outside or if it should rain, we do like having the lower level "kid zone" -- a space where they can hang out, play, sleep without being on top of the adults upstairs! Night lights is a great idea - we'll get some near the various bedrooms/bathrooms ASAP -- it does get dark in the north woods!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What can I say? LOVED this place. I could easily live there! Spacious home, comfortable furniture, plenty of space for everyone. The decked was a pleasant place to eat or read a book. We had the lake to ourselves. Plenty of fish biting and great for water skiing. Nice to be so close to the little town of Nevis for quick trips or access to the Heartland bike trail. Also close enough to Dorset and Park Rapids for unique shops and food. We drove 45 minutes to take in beautiful Itasca State Park where the great Mississippi has it's beginning. TV And Internet worked great. Really appreciate having laundry available as well. We will be back again. Thanks for providing a little piece of heaven for our family to enjoy!

Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5
A group of 11 of us went to this cabin for 3 nights, 4 days, and it was far too short of a trip. The space is unbelievable, and we still had extra beds open. This house has everything to offer and more. The pictures posted do not do this house justice. The furniture is updated, the house is clean, and there is a bathroom on every level! The basement was a great place to hangout and play ping-pong on the rainy evenings. When the description says "just bring yourself." It is completely true! Everything from towels to coffee, even life jackets, were there and ready for you to use! The lake is not a large lake, but it is a calm lake! Great for kayaking, which we did everyday. We did not bring a boat up, but we caught fish right off the dock. There are ATV trails close by, which the boy used twice. Doug was very helpful, and available whenever we had a question. Without a doubt we will return to this house again.
Park Rapids is jsut 15 miles west, and it is a great town to hangout for a few hours. On Thursday nights during the summer they have a free music festival. There is a gas station, grocery store, and bar only 3 miles away.

Enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and lounging on beautiful Spider Lake! Great location north of Nevis -- located mid way between Walker and Park Rapids. Access 100+ miles of bike and walking trails via the Heartland Trail, located 3 miles from our house. Winter brings access to Northwest Minnesota's extensive snowmobile trail network, as well as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing. 30 minutes to Itasca State Park, with numerous activities year-round and the famous Headwaters of the Mississippi River. Good shopping in both Walker and Park Rapids. Fun restaurants abound in the surrounding area, including Dorset, the 'restaurant capital of the world,' a short 15 minute drive from our house. Our house sits on 3 acres of property with 200 feet of lakeshore - very private and secluded from neighbors.
