Lake house is perfect for family adventures

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Waterfront Detroit Lake Log home. The owner was prompt with replies and suggestions. Home was clean, well stocked with towels, linens, kitchen cookware, etc. We enjoyed the outside fire pit 2 nights. We were able to easily launch our paddleboards from the beach and played air hockey often. Beds were comfortable and firewood for the fireplace was easily accessible. Drift wood was plentiful at the beach for the fire pit. We would absolutely stay here again. We loved it!

Amazing place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is fantastic! Walk right to the lake, beautiful view, great entertainment options with the game room and outdoor swing for the kids. Fire pit area is perfect! Staying here was enjoyed by all of us in our large group and the dog.

Fun Times!

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family stayed at the cabin at the beginning of September. We had a great time visiting, playing games, catching fish and swimming at the lake. It was a big enough space to accommodate 12 of us. They only thing I was a little disappointed in was that the cabin could have been cleaner when we showed up. However, it wasn't bad enough to keep me away. I would book again.

Excellent cabin by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bud's Caprino family cabin for three nights recently for the big total solar eclipse event, and it couldn't have been better. The cabin is spacious, comfortable, and fully stocked with everything you could need to sleep, cook, and enjoy yourself here. Big comfortable bedrooms plus other loft sleeping options. Wonderful great room to relax on sofas, chairs, or enjoy a group meal around the long dining table, wide wraparound deck with lake and sunset views. It has everything! Plus a fun game room in the basement and toys for the kids. BBQ for outdoor grilling, and a convenient path to access the lakeshore. Easy walking distance to town, and plenty of personal touches that made it feel like a real home. Bud and his family are a pleasure to work with, and my security deposit was returned within days of our departure. This is a beautiful home and is completely as advertised. I would love to stay here again. Thank you, Bud!

Can't wait to return in 2018

  • 5 of 5

Our Family had the best time at this cabin. Plenty of room for our large group. The kitchen was so well stocked with everything you could possibly need or want. The lake is just right down a short path. We had the whole beach to ourselves. We loved it so much that we are renting this cabin every summer for our Family get together. The owners were great to work with and I can't wait to return to the Caprino Cabin in 2018.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
