Daughter's Wedding Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

One of our daughters got married Saturday in Henderson, MN. We were looking for a nice place to stay instead of hotel rooms. Found this listing on VRBO and so glad we did!!

We had my husband and I, another daughter/husband and 2 kids (3,1) and our son/fiancee.

It was wonderful!! Plenty of room for our group (and one bedroom we didn't even use)! Three different areas to relax and watch TV. Two kitchens. Plenty of bathrooms. Beds were VERY comfortable. This home is updated with very nice/comfortable furnishings and great colors.

Our 3 year old grandson caught a few fish from the dock. Our 1 year old grandson celebrated his first birthday on Friday. We took them to the park across the street and let the birthday boy "dig in" to his birthday cake.

None of us wanted to leave on Sunday. Wish we would have planned an extra day.

Thank you Connie for sharing your home with us. Between the wedding and the cozy stay, our weekend was perfect!!

Family Lake Get Together!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property! Very well stocked with things you need as well as comfortable beds. Very close to downtown Prior Lake and anything else you may need. Connie is absolutely the easiest owner I have ever worked with. She is quick to respond to emails and calls. She made the process very easy and made us feel welcome! Quiet neighbors and fairly quiet lake especially during the week. Will definitely try to book this home again on our next summer visit! Also very good wheel chair access. My Mom had a wonderful time getting to where the action was and of course to oversee the activities! Great Memories!

Great vacation rental!!! Deb G.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this vacation rental this month. Connie was such an easy person to work with. We are a family of eight (four adults and four children) plus our gentle 12-year-old golden retriever. Everyone was pleased with the accommodations and location. There are several walking paths nearby which was such a treat. Also, the neighborhood is safe and family-friendly. We were about five minutes from shopping opportunities. You won't be disappointed with this vacation rental. Enjoy!!!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this home this winter. The house was very nicely furnished and extremely comfortable for our group. I appreciated that there were two living spaces and three bathrooms as it kept us from feeling cramped. The view of the lake was beautiful, especially from the upstairs loft, even though it was too cold to be outside! Connie was very kind to work with and helped make our stay great! I also appreciated that we were close to good restaurants, coffee shops and other shops. We'd love to come back!

Our family rented this amazing property while in town for a wedding. Connie was wonderful to work with and answered all my questions immediately. We were not able to enjoy being on the water, as it was November, but waking up to the beautiful lake view with a fresh snowfall was more than we could have ever asked for. The property is equipped with everything you need and the location keeps you close but not to close to all the craziness. Prior Lake is a quiet little town with amazing local restaurants and Lunds & Byerlys grocery store will have everything you need! This property is definitely one to rent at any time of the year!

Wonderful Weekend on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this beautiful lake house. The online pictures don't do it justice! All new appliances, very clean rooms with comfy beds, finished basement, and a walk out patio with plenty of deck space to grill out and eat dinner outside. This looks out over the back yard with a large hot tub, a cozy fire pit by the lake, and a small dock with kayaks, paddle boats, and a beautiful view. I would highly recommend this location to anyone wanting to enjoy a relaxing vacation!
