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

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.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here!

The owners are very, very accomodating and friendly!! My family of 6 stayed at this cabin (we initially were going to have 8--all adults--and would have fit very comfortably!) for our Christmas weekend. This cabin is really like two seperate dwellings stacked on top of each other, which worked out very very well for us! We spent most of our time upstairs where the kitchen, dining and living rooms are located, but when the older adults crashed for the night, my young adult children, went downstairs where they had stocked the downstairs fridge with beverages and snacks, played video games until who knows how late! Naomi and her husband made it very clearn that we were to contact them at any point, day or night, with any questions or problems. We arrived on a snowy7 day to find the large parking area completely cleared of snow, a Christmas tree with lights and a warm fire going in the gas fireplace downstairs.
We spent one afternoon cross-country skiing at the nearby Mill Lacs Kathio state park that rents both skiis and snowshoes, had a sledding hill and a warming house with a fire burning right there. Had we known, we would have brought along marshmellows or hot dogs to roast as we warmed up.
We own snowshoes and had them along, and on Sunday morning, even with -0 temps, a few of us went snowshowing in the beautiful wooded area surrounding the cabin. Becuase it is so protected, we had no wind and it was truly a beautiful morning!
We found the kitchen completely stocked--slow cookers, mixers, cookie sheets everything! We also anjoyed the penninsula between the kitchen and living room where we laid out appetizers and cookies, extra chairs are readily available when additional seating is necessary and even with 8 of us showering after our afternoon of skiing, we each enjoyed a wonderful HOT shower!

Check out the Kathio State Park website for activities. Look up the Garrison Commercial club and Mille lacs Area Tourism for more info. Follow your natural bent and come be a part of it!

My husband and I and our son, wife, and 2 daughters stayed at your lovely cabin and enjoyed an enriching 4 days together. The cabin is very roomy and clean, and we had everything we could need. The girls especially enjoyed having fires in the evening and going to the state parks in the area. Thank you, Naomi, for such a great setting for our time together.

This cabin is nestled in an area with mature trees and upon arrival, automatically sets the mood. We were excited! When you enter the cabin, it is clean and well-maintained. Naomi and Bernie have brochures and booklets with lots of places to dine and visit, during your stay.

The layout of the cabin was perfect for our family of 5. We even appreciated the fans in every room (we use them for white noise at home) The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we use at home, so that I could make supper for our family every night. They provide linens & towels, too, which was nice. Our favorite part of the house was the lower level. It has been newly renovated and the ambiance was perfect to hang out in the evenings, before bed.

We spent our days fishing Mille Lacs and local lakes. We also went to Father Hennepin and visited the beach. ($5.00 admission) We were very grateful for local gas stations and Grand Market within a few miles, so that we could buy some staples for the week. There is also a McDonald's a Subway nearby to grab a quick bite to eat, if you're in a hurry.

Naomi and Bernie provided excellent customer service. They asked us to call if we needed anything and were just great! We highly recommend this location!
Owner's Response: Thankyou for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay. Our goal is to set an atmosphere where relationships can grow and you can have fun and rest at the same time. The Mille lacs Lake area has many things to offer. Our guest has done a good job at mentioning the different options. We are thankful she had a successful vacaton time and that we could be apart of it.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have you. Things are not always perfect per se but we appreciate that you noted our positive features. We appreciate that you did some tidying before you left and stripped your beds and even dragged out the vaccum. Kudos! For a group of 12 I was impressed. Looking forward to having you again next year, Chris!

Thanks to Noami and Bernie for a great rental, our family had a huge Birthday celebration at a cabin on nearby Sullivan Lake and we wanted a rental for our senior family members to be able to get some peace and quiet. Needless to say, everything worked out perfect. Our rental had plenty of room and was well equipped with everything we needed. All though we did not boat or fish on Lake Milacs, it is very close as well as stores and restaurants. Very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others looking for a rental in the area.
Owner's Response: We're glad you had a good time and that your plans worked out for you. Thankyou very much for the wonderful review. We enjoyed the contact we had with you and we appreciate the effort you put into cleaning up, by the way! We look forward to accomodating your family in the future and are honored that you chose our rental to spend your vaction time. Sincerely, Bernie and Naomi

Mill Lacs Fishing Opener 2012

We made last minute changes for our opener destination and it was Mille Lacs. We wanted to find a place that was close to the lake and this one worked great and was available. It was just outside of Garrison and the driveway fit 2 boats/trailers and 6 guys no problem. Nice and peaceful place to hang out and relax after bouncing around on the lake all day. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Thankyou for volunteering your review. Just for the record you guys kept the place up. It was in perfect shape! I hardly knew you had been there. The garbage was neatly tied up and the beds stripped. I also read that you also caught "plenty" of fish. Way to go and glad to accomodate you. Bernie and Naomi Iserman

A Spring Weekend

We wanted to get out of the city for a couple of days, and this cabin was a good choice. It's in a quiet location surrounded by woods. There's a nice state park just a few minutes away.

The owner was friendly and easy to deal with. The house is well-equiped and clean. Recommended.
Owner's Response: We're pleased that you felt comfortable and relaxed. The State park is a feature in our area that I like to check out every once in a while. They have great programs such as fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, archiology, archery, bird watching, and they supply the equipment. Climbing the fire tower is a favorite of mine and affords a great view of the lake and surrounding area. There is also swimming and hiking of course, grills and playground. Thanks again for your review, We look forward to your return visit.

Christmas @ the Cabin

  • Stayed: Dec 2011
The owners of this rental property were wonderful to deal with and were very accommodating. Our family of 11 arrived on Christmas day and the owners took the extra time to decorate their rental property for us. This meant a lot since we had members of our family traveling all the way from Washington and New York. The space itself was clean and in good condition - plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The kitchen was also well-stocked, which we greatly appreciated.

The price was right and the location was good - we'd definitely rent it again should we ever need it.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the good rating! We do try to make our renters feel welcome. I'll have to say we have had wonderful renters as well. People leave the place tidy which makes our job easier as well. We enjoy what we do and are glad when others enjoy it as well.
