What a gem!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to stay in this home. It is the most tastefully decorated, warm, comfortable home --on a pine-studded lawn that slopes down to Boot Lake. It is in the Hiawatha National Forest, a dense wonderland of confers and deciduous hardwood trees, awash with red, yellow-gold and greens of all hues in late September.
I slept on the best bed ever (I just asked for the make and model because I want to buy one just like it) and awoke to the light filtering through pines that stretched way above the 2nd floor balcony of the master bedroom. What a joy!
Honestly, when I think of the beauty of the home, the beauty of the land, I get choked up. People seem to have such respect for life and a strong sense of community. I never saw a speck of litter; never heard a disparaging word. Everyone I met was warm and inviting. I always felt safe. I just hope to return one day.
And I want to thank Robin, for her warmth, availability, helpfulness -- for opening her home. You have impeccable taste and I hope one day I get to meet you.

As for restaurants, I'd plan on cooking more in the fabulous kitchen rather than eating out --although I really enjoyed my lunch and hanging out a bit at Falling Rocks Cafe.
Go. You will have a wonderful time.
