About Stacey Schwendeman
Hello! We are Nathan and Stacey Schwendeman. We were both born and raised in Minnesota, and grew up playing on the Minnesota lakes and rivers. As adults, we now know the value of this precious resource and wanted our own little slice of heaven on one of the many beautiful waterfront properties Minnesota has to offer. Knowing that this resource is meant to share, we wanted to open our vacation property to you, fellow VRBO travelers. We have used VRBO in the past and have been very pleased with the quality of homes and caliber of people we meet. We wish to live up to the same standards. Please feel free to call or write with any questions you may have.
Stacey Schwendeman purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Stacey Schwendeman chose Frazee
After many years of looking, we knew we wanted to purchase property in the Detroit Lakes area due to the natural beauty of the area (so many lakes with great fishing, swimming, boating camping and hiking – all our favorites!). Then it was just a matter of finding the right property on the right lake – A lake that wasn't too busy, or too small - so that you could enjoy good fishing and boating. Eagle Lake was just the right size! This property also allows us to put some 'roots' back in our home state, and is a great place to gather with family. It is only a 45-minute drive from Fargo Regional Airport, which provides a quick connection to and from Chicago O'Hare and Minneapolis/St.Paul airports. The drive to the Twin Cities is easily made in less than 4 hours, and offers scenic views of the farms, lakes and country side.
What makes this Cabin unique
This is our vacation home, not a commercial property. We spend our summer weeks here as well, so please be our guests and make yourself comfortable. We enjoy the calming atmosphere of great views across the lake out to the island. Many mornings have been spent on the dock with a cup of hot coffee or hot chocolate just listening to the sounds of the lake. We also enjoy the time we spend in Frazee and Detroit Lakes. There is always a great place on the 'mile-long' beach of Big Detroit Lake to eat, meet or just people watch. The many city parks offer a fun place for the kids to play while you have a picnic. We often add items to the cabin or property, which adds to the enjoyment of our guests. If you find the house is missing something, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs. Hope to hear from you soon - The lake is calling.

Loved the privacy of the area and how roomy it is. Best part of all is how clean the house is. Don't feel like I need to clean before I unpack
Terrific peaceful location
Once again we enjoyed our stay at Eagle Lake. Beautiful surroundings and close to everything
Perfect family get away!
We had an amazing week at Eagle Lake! We enjoyed the comfortable cabin and found everything we needed. The fishing right off the dock was great! I caught so many 2-3 pound bass that we had to start catching and releasing because we couldn't eat all the fish! Beds were comfortable and the little bit of rain gave us just the right amount of down time. We would highly recommend this spot and hope to visit again!
Property worthy of our 50th wedding anniversary celebration
We were so happy with the location close to Frazee, Perham and Detroit Lakes. The lake, Eagle Lake, was beautiful and just the perfect size for our use. We water skied, tubed, paddle boarded, canoed, and jet skied. There was also fishing for those of us who wanted to try our hand at that. The property was stocked with yard games and indoor movies and books as well and came in handy for the rainy day we had.
When we arrived the property was very clean, the yard as well as the cabin. We found the cabin well stocked with spices, flour and sugar. There was also a coffee pot which to me was so important to have. The yard had a very nice fire pit and we enjoyed the use of that in the evenings. We enjoyed a wonderful rare time with our kids and grandkids to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It was perfect!
The owners kept in touch with us and were available if we needed them. They even notified us of the grounds crew coming in to mow. We could not have been more satisfied with the choice of this property. We would recommend this property with no hesitation.

So much to offer for family at this cabin. There is a canoe, water board, camp fire and toys for your little ones to play with. It was clean as well. It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer at the cabin for our stay. A couple issues came up but the owners were very accommodating and seemed to do everything they could and we could ask for to remedy the issues.
Eagle Lake fishing trip
Very pretty lake but very weedy bottom. Cabin had pretty view of the lake and good access if you don't mind steps. Pictures showed a covered boat lift...but there is not one there. Pictures also showed a TV...but it is not hooked up. No internet which we did know. There are movies, but all for children, so plan on taking your own if you are adults. Cabin appeared clean when we walked in, but as we used the kitchen, we noticed sticky dishes and silverware drawer could be cleaned out. The drain plug did not hold water in the sink. We ended up buying a dishpan to do dishes. The dish drainer needs to be replaced! Has black stuff growing on the legs and I pulled a wad of long hair out that was tangled up in it. I ended up draining dishes on a towel. Very hard water that smells when you first use the hot water. It got better with use. Nice washer and dryer. New couch and chair. Bed was very comfortable. Enjoyed the campfire ring. We used our own grill so not sure about the grill that is there. It has lots of potential. Just needs some TLC. Loved Ketters Meat Market in Frazee. Disappointed in fishing but that can't be controlled. Just teeny bluegill off the dock. We enjoyed just taking boat rides around the lake since the fish weren't biting.
Thank you so much for your valuable input. We are happy to tackle any issues reported by our guests so we can make future vacations pleasant and relaxing for all. This year we installed a brand new float dock to give our guests a stable, comfortable way to access the lake. Cleats and bumpers are included with the dock to secure your boat. The public boat launch is conveniently located less than a half mile from the cabin. In the kitchen, we have gone through all dishes, cooking ware, utensils, and storage containers to ensure everything is sparkling clean for our future renters. Additionally, we have included a thorough kitchen inspection on our cleaning crew's checklist to ensure these items are in tip-top shape. The sink hardware has been cleaned, and new drain stoppers have been purchased. We hope our future renters enjoy these new features and we look forward to making continuous improvement to our lovely little getaway on Eagle Lake. Our goal is to make your vacation comfortable and worry-free!
We are nestled in the heart of the Detroit Lakes area with quick access to many attractions for everyone in the family. Breakfast comes with more food than you can eat at the Palace Cafe in downtown Frazee. After you eat, walk across the street to Ketter's Meat Market to pick up some of their delicious brats, pork chops or steaks for grilling (you WILL NOT be disappointed). Enjoy lunch in the quaint city of Perham, MN, where you will find a fantastic little coffee house/gift shop called Gathering Grounds. For a nice, picturesque dinner out, visit Spanky's Stone Hearth in Vergas with views of beautiful Rose Lake. These are just a few of our favorite places in the area, but we are discovering more all the time! Explore the area and let us know of any interesting and noteworthy places YOU find!
