About Chris Bering
My wife and I are originally from southern Ontario Canada but have been living in Iowa since 2000. Both our our children were born in Iowa and we have both since obtained our American citizenship. My work as an Engineer for John Deere brought us to Iowa and has also given us the opportunity to live in Germany for 2 years.
Chris Bering purchased this House in 2013
Why Chris Bering chose Isle
Our lake house in Minnesota is special to us. We originally bought the property with another family and our kids have grown up there. Unfortunately our friends recently left for new opportunities so we now own the entire property. A few rentals a year will help offset the additional costs. We are the second owners. The original couple that built the house were of Scandinavian descent and many of their original decorations are still quite visible. We've made a few modern updates and repairs. The view of the lake is beautiful and we are blessed with wonderful neighbors.

We contacted the Chris about staying at his cabin for a small family gathering. (We had 9 adults and a couple of kids 3 and under - it was the perfect size).
The location was great and the house was amazing! Everything was in working and ready order with good sleeping arrangements for all of us. Plenty of towels for drying off after swimming in the lake, which was right off the property. The kitchen was well stocked with all the appliances and dishes we could ask for in cooking for the amount of people we had.
We had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves at this airy and open cabin.
**Note to anyone renting in the summer. Purchase your firewood before hand. We had some confusion on what wood pile we were supposed to take some wood from and got yelled at by the neighbors (we put it back the next morning after deciding we shouldn't burn it and just went inside and got our own the next day).
The only thing we were weary about and felt a little self conscious about was it felt like the neighbors didn't really want us there and that they were keeping an eye on us. At one point we received a text from Chris about one of the neighbors contacting him about our dog being on the property (which we specified may happen before hand), so that kind of dampered our spirits a bit, and made us feel "watched" so to speak. But we also understood that neighbors will be neighbors and watch out for each other. It did make us more conscious of our future decisions though, which isn't always fun second guessing if what you're doing is going to get another text.
Other than that, we had a great time catching up and laughing a lot (we see each other maybe once a year). It was the ideal place to do so and greatly appreciate Chris letting us use his cabin to do so.
We all had a magnificent time
Our family enjoyed this beautiful house while we attended a family reunion weekend on Lake Mille Lacs. Convenient location to Isle. Owner was easy to contact and the place was in great shape when we arrived.
Enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay. We caught many fish right around the dock. We would definitely stay again.
Charming Cabin with beautiful lot
We had a amazing time. Cabin was clean and very comfortable for our large group. The kids love the beach area and open flat lot. Unfortunately we went during a may flies hatch so the fishing was terrible. I would diffidently rent here again.
Lots of Room, Great Location and a Picturesque View
I ended up going up with a few friends of mine - there ended up being seven of us, and there was plenty of room for eating, lounging around, and sleeping. The owner was very responsive, and the pre-arrival information had everything we would need to know. A great location - not too far from town, but still had a lake house/cabin feel. The neighbors were very friendly (including one dog visitor). The one thing is that it was difficult to see the house numbers - keep a close watch, because all of us missed it on the first pass. The wifi was also a little dodgy, but worked after a reset.
