Thank you, Jo Ann! We enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. Thanks for the green beans; they were delicious and this is from my garden.
For the past 3 years we have spent a week in June fishing on Crane Lake. The past two years have been spent at the Bayside Retreat. Our group numbers from 4 to 7 each year depending on who's available and we bring our own boats. The home is located perfectly for our group, 5 minutes from the bait shop on the main road for all our fishing needs and 5 minutes to Voyagaire or Nelson's resort when we get tired of eating our own cooking. The home is well maintained, clean & up to date appliances, plus Wi-Fi & satellite TV and a great dock with power to recharge our boat batteries. Could not ask for anything better. We are looking forward to our fishing trip in 2017. Thanks Jo Ann, we had a great time again this year.
We absolutely love Crane Lake. We go every year at least twice a year. This time we needed a large home with several rooms for a wedding in September 2015.
The home sits on a beautiful lot right on the lake. Also, the town of Crane Lake is only a few minutes drive away. You can't have it any better! Wilderness and a touch of civilization!
The house is modern and has all the amenities we needed. Highly recommend anyone to rent Bayside Retreat!!
