We enjoy our lake home very much! We have another Lake Home and decided to rent this one - as we have decided to keep both in the family.
The Owner purchased this house in 1989
Location was great - not too far of a drive from the Twin Cities with great roads. Close to Mille Lacs Lake for some great fishing - close to Brainerd for great entertainment. The best thing is Round Lake is a great lake, just the right size, not too busy with a lot of other boaters, it has a sandy beach with very clear clean water, and great swimming for the entire family. We are located in a great bay with very few other property owners.
The tranquility of the lake and sunsets are just amazing. It is hard to explain until you have experienced it. The sandy beach, quiet lake, swimming, and just soaking up the sun on the dock or relaxing by the fire in the fire pit are so enjoyable. The large lot makes it nice to enjoy other lawn activities while still enjoying the water. Also, watching the resident eagles soar and osprey dive for fish add to the total enjoyment of the lake experience.
Thank you very much for the great weekend cabin. The kids love swimming in the sandy beach and we had fun jumping off the dock. I would love to visit again in the future!
This cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Four of us stayed here - four adults and one toddler and the size was just right. The shallow, clear,sandy beach is perfect and a standout feature for us. We also loved the big beautiful deck, bonfire area, and lawn. The kitchen and home are well stocked with everything we needed (i.e. Cooking utensils, etc). The cabin overall is well taken care of and clean, and the owners are super thoughtful, professional, and considerate. We would stay here again!
Stayed here with a group of 8. Two kids and six adults and we all had plenty of room to eat, sleep, and relax. The kids played all day and the adults had some nice quiet time at night to build a campfire and catch up with each other. The only complaint is that we didn't have more time! Would definitely like to make this a yearly trip!
My husband and I received this vacation as a gift from our adult children and what a gift it was! We spent the week at our leisure on sand beaches, crystal clear water and towering trees. The sunsets were fantastic reflected on the glassy water. We golfed three of the local courses and enjoyed their scenic beauty as well.
A special thank you to the host and hostess of this property for their cordial sharing of information, people, and local hot spots for us. We appreciated your open friendliness and all the people we met at Round Lake.
We spent two enjoyable weeks at Round Lake. It was a quiet, relaxing getaway. The house is roomy and provides a variety of living spaces so you don’t feel like you are on top of each other. The dining room table provides for good visiting whether you’re playing a game or enjoying breakfast or dinner. The decks were an added benefit; in addition to the hours we spent enjoying them, they help keep the sand outside. Karen and Doug were excellent hosts, never in the way, but willing to help or provide information if needed. We are planning a return trip and hoping that we are better anglers or that fishing has improved!
The four of us had a wonderful experience at the Lake home. It is a beautiful lake, and easy to find. We could watch the loons from the dock, paddle around the lake and just hang out on the patio. The kitchen was fully equipped, and the cabin comfortable. We have been going on girls weekends for 18 years, and this location is definitely in the top 3 favorites!
This is the second time we spent a week at this cabin and we had a wonderful time again. The swimming beach and sandy bottomed lake were wonderful. We swam with our 7 year old twice a day. The yard is huge and flat with a great view of the lake. We would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone looking to spend a week at the lake.
