About kathy Vilendrer
We live in the Twin Cities, but purchased the home as a vacation property for our young family in 2004, enjoying many years on the beautiful Pokegama Lake. We ended up building a larger home on an adjacent property to accommodate our expanding family, but couldn't bear to give up our original home so decided to put it on VRBO for others to enjoy. With its serene location, beautiful views and proximity to town, we think you will love it as much as we did!

Why kathy Vilendrer chose Grand Rapids
Grand Rapids is a vibrant community with a full offering of festivals, concerts and special events for adults and children all year round.
What makes this House unique
Perched high above the lake (a trolley takes you down to the dock) the view of the lake is incredible. Lots of space for yard games and great fishing right off the dock!

Beautiful House, Spectacular View!
My family of eight was very comfortable staying here while we attended our daughter's wedding. The house is fully equipped and made us feel like we were in our own house. As we spent the week here, having a nice kitchen and washer/dryer was a big help. Our three grandchildren enjoyed exploring the backyard and fished on the dock below. Highly recommended!
Thanks for your nice comments and for leaving the house so tidy. Hoping the wedding was a wonderful event for all! Come visit again when you are in MN!
We had a fabulous stay while here. The house was roomy even with 8 of us staying. The yard was large and private. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away and just relax!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Top notch property with a great location. We will return.
Wonderful Vacation Spot
We stayed for a week. The house was very large and accommodating for 6 adults and 2 kids. We enjoyed the screened in porch, making s'mores at the fire pit, the ease of getting to the place and the beauty of the lake. The lake is very big and we were able to find a map in the house of the topography, which helped because the shoals are not marked with buoys on the lake. We were able to launch and trailer our boat daily without having to pay a boat launch fee and it was close by. We also brought ATV's and had to drive about 15 minutes to the closest trail. The water frontage was okay. There were rocks we had to walk over first to get into the water, highly recommend water shoes. After that it was sand and then seaweed past the dock. We also did some fishing. We caught a couple fish off the dock but had better luck going out a little further on the boat to catch decent sized fish. The canoe was nice and the kayaks are definitely meant for smaller/petite people. Overall had a great time and will definitely stay there if we vacation in the area again!
We had 2 families that escaped to the northwoods of Minnesots for a little staycation. The property was everything we expected and more. The lake was beautiful and much larger than we anticipated. The property owner was very welcoming and gave us lots of local advice. Being golfers the proximatey to the local golf course was great. And it was a beautiful and reasonably priced course. The large lot made it easy for the kids to enjoy basketball, playing catch, yard games and of course nightly fires. This was a great northwoods getaway with all the modern amenities. We will definitely remember this property as we plan future group vacations.
Thanks for the amazing stay. Your property is just what we have been searching for.. phenomenal. Many little touches throughout the home and the great customer service push it over the top. Vacation Ladies thoroughly enjoyed the property.
Thanks for your kind words! Thanks too, for leaving the property so clean and organized! It was a pleasure having you and we hope you return again sometime soon!
