About Dan

My wife and I grew-up in the outdoors - we love to boat, fish, hunt, camp, and sit by the campfire telling stories. Some of our fondest memories as kids growing-up was packing the car to go to Uncle Buzz' cabin on the lake for a week of fun. This experience, and the memories they created, was something my wife and I wanted to pass onto our children. We started with the cabin 'in the middle' but over the years, the owners to our 'right' and to our 'left' wanted to sell their properties. We now have more cabins than we will ever use personally and would like to share them with other families who share our values. Our little 'retreat' now has 6+ acres of privacy and over 575' of level, sandy lakeshore. It is truly our little slice of heaven.....

Dan purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Dan chose Minnesota

Lake Pokegama is one of the premier lakes in Minnesota and offers multiple amenities. We are within(6) miles of downtown Grand Rapids, at the end of a quiet dead-end street, and have level lakeshore. The cabin is simple, clean, and has a million dollar view!

What makes this cabin unique

You will be challenged to experience all of the lakeshore and waterway in one week. Most of the lake traffic occurs on the weekend's, offering a quiet retreat during the week. When it's windy, there is always a protected bay to enjoy. At the end of the week, it will be tough to go home.

Awesome cabin for a family!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy cabin by the lake with a GREAT person to rent from, this is the one! Whenever we stayed at this cabin, we were up in Grand Rapids doing a job that last 6 weeks. Dan had already closed the cabin down for the winter, but reopened to allow us a nice place to stay at an affordable price. The coffee pot was missing and whenever we ran to town and came back, he had one sitting on the counter. After the first nights stay we noticed the microwave was missing as well. I sent Dan a text and had a microwave a couple days later when he made it back into town. He worked with us on our check out date as our job was day to day at the end, and was more than happy to do anything we ever needed him to at the cabin. The cabin is set up with you walking into the kitchen with the dining room to your left that has big sliding glass doors the give an awesome view of the lake and sunrise! Your living room, bathroom, and main bedroom with queen bed are also on this floor. The bathroom doesn't have a bath tub, but the shower is large enough for anyone. The second bedroom is up the stairs that are beside the dining room. There are four beds upstairs and it would be the perfect set up for kids or some friends to be able to chat at night after a fun day of fishing or sports on the lake! Dan and his properties come highly recommended. He is great to rent from and work with on getting everything the way you want it! A+++++ and highly recommended. As a plus there is also a resident bald eagle! You are about a 10 minute drive to make it into Grand Rapids

Perfect location on Pokegama, Minnesota's most beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Three siblings and their families spent 4th of July in this spacious environment. Loved that this property is on the west side of the lake...morning sun was warming yet we were very comfortable in the protected shade during the hot afternoons. Beach has beautiful sand bottom in crystal clear water; a haven for kids ages 1-16 years old! The dock accommodated our 26" boat, with easy lake access not fair from the property. Decided to watch the fireworks from the property (vs. taking the boat out) cause the view was hard to beat!! The cabin was equipped with everything we needed inside and out! Looking forward to staying here again!

AMAZING - Relaxing and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year staying at this property. We had a large group and there was plenty of space for all and the two kitchens allowed for enough room to prepare all of our meals and enjoy them together. The rooms are nicely updated and the area of the lake is very peaceful. The shoreline was ideal for the kids to play and swim and the lake was clean and clear. Dan was amazing to work with and we will be coming back next year for sure!

Another Great Family Vacation on Pokegama Lake

  • 4 of 5

Has been a few years since we have been back to this property. Nice upgrades in the kitchen & family area with beautiful large dining table and furniture in both family rooms. Beds have also been replaced and are amazingly comfortable. We love staying for a week here. So much to do on this great lake and everything you could need nearby in Grand Rapids. So perfect for my sisters and our families to build memories of summer vacations. Will come back every year!

Prime spot on Lake Pokegama

  • 5 of 5

This property is great for kids. We had 6 kids (ages 1-8) so having the separation from one side of the house to the other worked very well for naps and bedtime. We would close the breezeway doors and be able to play games and laugh at night without having to worry about waking the kids. Heaven knows they needed a good night's rest after playing hard all day in the sun! The property is so close to the water that I could sit on the deck and still watch the kids play in the shallow water. I noticed a couple other reviews mentioned the easy-entry to the water and I couldn't agree more... convenient for the kids and stays shallow far enough for them to go out to the driving platforms on their own. Our family is big enough that we rented the next door cabin as well, which was very nice so we had a nice-sized area of water between the 2 docks to set a perfect physical boundary for the kids to play in safely. My husband fished everyday, which he LOVED, and it was great that he could go in the morning and afternoon for a couple hours without having to be gone all day since it was so convenient to stop back at the cabin as needed. Over the years vacationing here, he has found multiple fishing holes and says one thing he likes about Pokegama is even if it's a windy day, you can still always find a place tucked away to fish because of the size and shape of the lake. The owner's flat-bottomed pontoon in great for fishing with the kids too and it's the kind of fishing that is great for kids... You get a bite most every cast! Downfall is, lot of little ones, but the kids don't care about that. We fish for blue gills. Another plus if the fishing side of things, there is not a lot of traffic! The lake is so huge that we probably just didn't notice other fisherman. Our cabins give us private lake access so we didn't even run in to other tourists which was perfect for our private family getaway! We used the kayaks everyday as well; great bonus.

We keep thinking we should go somewhere else for our family trip, but we continue to love it enough every year that we keep coming back! Why change a good thing I guess! ?

Family of 15 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place because we could all be together under one roof. Fifteen of us - 8 adults and 7 grandchildren (ages infant to 8). We like to be in one unit to cook together, eat together, play together and BE together. We have been here twice and the accommodations fit us perfectly! Dan and Patty are super nice people and their goal is for you to have a great visit to their home. Yes, it truly is their home and the accommodations are every bit as nice as what you would want/have for a lakeside home. We appreciate having the dishwasher and washer and dryer. With the many people those two things are a necessity. The grounds are flat and roomy for children to run and play, the shallow water close to the grounds is perfect for small kids and no worries for mom and dad. It's nice to have your own private spot so you aren't competing with multiple resort families/guests. Our family had a great week making memories and we will definitely be going back! Thanks, Dan and Patty!
