Jon has recently finished his internship in engineering, married the love of his life and loves to hunt with our dog Cali, a Yellow Lab.

Naomi or Bernie Iserman purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Naomi or Bernie Iserman chose Garrison

Bernie and I originally came up North to work with a camp called Timber Bay, a retreat center particularly for hurting youth but also for church and other various retreats. We live adjacent to Timber Bay and have made this our home. We originally built the vacation rental home for our retirement. It is only 5 miles from our home and we enjoy the creativity it takes to keep it up and running, for guests who come up North for their vacation. The new constructed part of it is about 5 years old.

What makes this cabin unique

The benefits include living next to a very popular vacation spot but also having the privacy and peace and quiet of the north woods. Its a 3 minute drive to the beach and wonderful activities around the Lake. We are surrounded by a variety of eateries, ATV and hiking and biking trails and beautiful sunsets and a star lit sky that will take your breath away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks! Cozy getaway for us. There was room to run for our toddler, and ample game playing space in the kitchen. All the essentials were available, and we enjoyed the fresh snow on the nearby roads. Great for a leisurely walk and pulling the granddaughter on a sled. Surrounded by a beautiful north woods.

Great birthday weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, best friend and her husband spent a winter weekend here to celebrate a 40th birthday. We had a lovely time! The kitchen held what we needed for cooking and the heat worked perfectly as well. No wifi meant we were all unplugged and enjoying each other's company. What a treat nowadays! The cabin and furnishings were all as pictured. Comfy and cozy.

We built a fire in the fire pit on the hill one of the evenings and there was plenty of wood and chairs to go round even though it was winter (plenty of stars too!). We really had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are always glad to hear a good report. The weather has been especially mild this last week. We've got the best of both worlds up here in the North. Keep us in mind for your next vacation! We would love to have you. Naomi Iserman

Owner's Response: We are proud to say our customers treat us right too! I can tell when a guest makes the extra effort to clean up, run the dishwasher, or leave behind a note or sometimes a gift. I am always pleasantly surprised! We are learning the art of hospitality right along with you. Thanks so much. We look forward to having you on a return visit. Sincerely, Bernie and Naomi

Clean, comfortable, and relaxing

I stayed here with two friends for a quick city escape. Wish we could have stayed longer! This cabin had everything we could have possibly wanted, including bags/cornhole and a campfire all set up and ready to light (on which we roasted marshmallows). We grilled out a couple of times too on the very nice charcoal grill. A couple of stores nearby allowed us to easily restock our wine and meat supply. The surrounding woods were so pretty and quiet too. Definitely recommend. Thank you, Naomi!

Very clean!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and that is a must for our family. Everything smelled so fresh. Lots of room. Loved the basement and felt safe when a severe thunderstorm warning came through. Very relaxing. Had everything we needed. Lots to do around the area including fishing, four wheeling, and state parks. Only suggestion we would have is to maybe get a picnic table for outside. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Extremely clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 10th annual fishing trip to Mille Lac for myself and my son, and the first time we didn't bring any fish into the boat. That being said, the accommodations were exceptional. The home had everything we needed, it was very clean and well kept. All appliances were in working order and Naomi and her husband couldn't have been more helpful. When we told them that the meat market we had planned to shop at was no longer in business, Naomi offered to take a list from us and go to the nearer Costco and do our shopping while we unloaded our stuff. Unbelievable kindness. Wouldn't hesitate recommending this home to friends.
