Why Brenda Strilzuk chose Balsam Lake

The location is prime, nearby lakes and woods provide scenic beauty and various wildlife will visit

quite often. We feel there is a need for families and friends to build relationships,enjoy one

another in a relaxed enviornment, and celebrate those special occasions in life!!

What makes this cabin unique

When the night is clear you will see starry skies with galaxies too many to name. Nothing can compare to the smell of a roaring bonfire and the food cooking to perfection on the outdoor grill!!

Nice location, good people

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice lodge with a beautiful setting and a good lay out of rooms and bathrooms. We were there in winter and it was gorgeous but summer would be just as good.

Beautiful cabin, better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a family gathering followed by a bachelor party, and it was fantastic. The photos do not do the property justice... when I first arrive, I thought I was in the wrong place, because it was too beautiful! I couldn't have been happier and Brenda was quick to assist with our every need. The cell phone service is spotty around the area and in the cabin, but the wifi at the cabin worked great. It was stocked with everything we needed to cook all of our meals, both in the kitchen and out on the grill. In summary, everything was fantastic: 5 stars.

Great place! Clean and well kept! Owners are great to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has plenty of room, plenty of bathrooms and a great kitchen and gathering area. There is a large deck and seating areas outside. Our family had a great time and we hope to come back for a longer stay next time.

Brenda and Greg were very accommodating, welcoming, and available. The cabin was a perfect setting for our family reunion- large, clean, close to the lake, and fully equipped!
