About Wallace Barry

With the help of our contractor family members, our lake home was lovingly built with our own hands over a period of 18 months. We regularly enjoy family gatherings here and hope you will also enjoy creating memories in this special place.

Wallace Barry purchased this House in 1998

                                                            Great place plenty of room for our large family.

                                                            John L.

                                                            We had a wonderful time and had plenty of room for our large family. The pontoon was a big bonus as our group doesn't own a boat. The 3 bathrooms was a must and accommodated us well. Great place would rent again.

                                                            Perfect Backdrop for a Perfect Vacation for a Family of 6!

                                                            Christina L.

                                                            Back in the Fall 2015 we, a busy family of 6 (kids' ages 15, 12, 11, 8), were figuring out what we'd do for our summer 2016 vacation. We decided a low-key, tech-light vacation was just what we needed and that Minnesota (a state we had not vacationed to before and one that was not far from Nebraska) would be the state. Then we started looking for a place to stay and after several hours over a few weeks we narrowed it to 3. We ultimately chose this home because of the owners...they were responsive and friendly and we just knew it was the place for us. We were not disappointed!! The Barry's home, this town (Outing), and these lakes (Lawrence & Roosevelt) ended up being the perfect backdrop for our family vacation. We boated, had wonderful weather, enjoyed family meals mostly at the cabin but also out at the Pickled Loon and Village Inn, played board games & card games, watched movies, had campfires, made s'mores, enjoyed ice cream at Owls and Things, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our vacation. We were sad to go and hope to come back at some point. I would highly recommend Wally & Lauri's home to anyone. It was clean, well stocked, warm & inviting, and just lovely. We felt right at home and settled in nicely from the moment we walked through the door. We hope that you and yours have as great of a time as we did!! Blessings to you! :)

                                                            Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It pretty much sums up all of the reasons we love our lake home and its location too. We're glad you enjoyed your vacation and that it delivered just what you were looking for. We hope you'll consider us for a future stay.

                                                            Great Time!

                                                            Great get away location. Very private yet within walking distance to Outing. Very nice and well kept home with great views. Very family friendly, we had a great time!

                                                            Thanks Wally & Lauri!

                                                            A little bit of Heaven !!

                                                            We had the most wonderful family vacation here. Everything was perfect! The house is beautifully modern and cozy, it had everything anyone could need or want, right down to the beautiful dishes!! loved them..So Fun!! We loved the privacy and seclusion, with trees being on both sides, and the large yard to play games. The lake is see thru clear, no weeds and perfect for small children to splash and swim. Fishing with grandsons right off the dock couldn't have been more fun....The fire pit was such a big hit, stargazing was so beautiful, we even seen the northern lights one night.The pontoon was a great decision, plenty of room for all of us and sometimes used for napping without running back to the cabin. Fishing was great, with plenty of bass and sunfish for dinner meals. Delicious!

                                                            Don't forget to stop at the Owls and Things ice cream shop, with all kinds of flavors, it is so good after a hot day!! YUMMY!! The grocery/gas store is just minutes down the road filled with all you need and it's all within walking distance.

                                                            The owners could not have been more wonderful to work with.. so generous and helpful.. Thank You!!

                                                            Thanks for a beautiful vacation, it was all so grand and filled with many wonderful memories that will forever last a lifetime!!

                                                            Blessings to you!!

                                                            What a great week! We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were "Wowed" from the get go. The cabin was clean, modern and had plenty of room. We had nine people in our party and never felt like we were in each others space. We had lots of pool and dart tournaments at night and the teens loved the Wi-Fi. The lake was nice and we even rented stand up paddle boards from Land O Lakes marine, which is only 2 blocks away. Fishing was good. We caught enough for a fish fry. The kids walked up the Owls and Things for ice cream and over to the playground at the public landing. Even though we were right in town, it was still very quiet and secluded. This is our third time using VRBO and this was by far the best! Thank you.

                                                            This home was perfect for our week long stay with our daughter and grandsons. The property was exactly as described, clean and stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. Wally was wonderful and just a phone call away to familiarize us with the pontoon boat and lake. The Pickled Loon, Owls N Things and Village Inn......all great local places!
