About Janelle DeSanto
I grew up in Grand Rapids and have always loved coming "Up North" We bought the cabin in 2015 to have a getaway from our busy work schedules and to spend time with our children so they can see how we grew up!
Janelle DeSanto purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Janelle DeSanto chose Grand Rapids
We chose Deer Lake because it is a slower pace then a lot of the Lakes in Itasca County. We also loved the calming blue waters and easy access to the Chippewa National Forest. We call Deer Lake the "Caribbean of The North." It truly is one of cleanest lakes in the State! Stay at our cabin a week to see why this cabin and Lake are so special ! Another interesting tidbit--- I grew up on Lake Pokegama, but chose to Purchase on Deer Lake simply because I feel like it's a better lake. It's not a party lake by any means ( unlike Pokeg) but it's the perfect Lake to take your family and show them an amazing time. :)
What makes this Cabin unique
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Norway and Sweden at Lake Cottages for a few weeks. I have always wanted a nordic feel for my cabin and I feel with my re-desiging certain elements, and remodeling the entire cabin, I have achieved my vision for the perfect Scandinavian looking Lake Home!I White washed walls, planked floors in a washed- out muted grey, faux fur throws, combined with pops of color give this cabin a cozy modern feel.

Perfect location. Beautiful lake, the fall colors were incredible during our stay. The beds are SO comfy, and the hot tub is decadent. I absolutely want to go back again!
This was such a beautiful and spacious space to stay! My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The property manager was extremely responsive and helpful and the space was just as described. Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful home right on Deer Lake. It really felt like we got out of the hustle and bustle of the cities and was so quiet we could hear Loons on the lake in the morning. Very relaxing.
Beautiful and serene cabin
We really enjoyed staying here, even though the weekend was colder than expected. The cabin is a great space and had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. The kayaks were a bonus and we enjoyed kayaking in the mornings.
Private North Woods Lake Retreat
Our family of three generations enjoyed this stunning lake home and property. The views from the deck were breathtaking. We were fascinated with all the "Up North" decorations and artwork. The kiddos enjoyed the loft and bean bag chairs. Everyone enjoyed using the kayaks and paddle board as well as the dock and ladder. The hot tub was a great hit! During the week we caught lots of bluegills and
bass - enough for a great fish fry and more to bring home!
We were excited to find the upscale outdoor cushioned sectional and matching table to accommodate 10 on the side
deck along with a new gas Weber Genesis grill! We witnessed many star constellations while gathered around the cozy fire pit. Thank you Janelle for sharing your home on beautiful Deer Lake.
Wonderful, knowledgeable, accommodating hosts. Breath- taking views, beautiful home with all the extras that will make packing for the lake much easier next year! Great week spent with 3 generations under one roof.
Our Cabin is located 17 minutes from Grand Rapids.
