Beautiful Home - Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

Deb's home was very good for our two families. Our four kids were entertained with the many games (ping pong, badminton and other yard games). The paddle boards and kayaks were a wonderful alternative to the pontoon boat we rented at Sunny-side Marina (rent well-ahead as they only have three available). We all loved evening fires under the stars. The home is comfortable with everything you need and the views of the lake from the ample deck and living room were beautiful. The home was well stocked with all of the essentials, though make sure to clarify linens policy as it relates to beach and bathroom towels. Our families would stay at the home again.

We have stayed here two times now. It is on a quiet part of the lake with wonderful views. There are three levels to this house and all levels have a bathroom/bedroom. We had three families stay here and it was wonderful for us to socialize, yet we could all have our private time also. The house has all that we needed and we just brought food. There is no central air (for summer visits), but there are two portable air conditioners for the main and upstairs levels. The basement stays very comfortable w/out air. We will continue to stay at this house and would recommend to others. The owner is very easy to work with.

Peaceful bay on Balsam Lake. Scenic view of Pines which create a wind break so the water rarely has waves. Close public boat access on bay. Length of bay and still waters make it perfect for water skiing. The day can be spent on the lake boating with all its acres to explore and places to stop for lunch. Jet ski, swim, tubing, fishing, volley ball, bike, all your favorite summer activities !
