About Shaun Simmer

Our family has been traveling to Okoboji every summer for many years. Each year it gets harder to leave. So, we decided to buy a place of our own, so we knew we'd always have a comfortable place to return to with plenty of room for all our family. It's been the best decision we've made.

Shaun Simmer purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Shaun Simmer chose Iowa

We chose Bridges Bay because it's a great place to spend a vacation year round Whatever the weather, there's always something to do. From relaxing by the outdoor pool, to sitting in the hot tub...from fishing in the pond to snowmobiling in the winter, from boating on the Lake to shopping & dining at the great restaurants.

What makes this cabin unique

The kids LOVE the endless activities that Bridges Bay has to offer. The adults love the convenience, safety, and relaxed feeling the Lake offers. From kayaking on the pond right our our door, to swimming in one of the several outdoor pools, all of which are available for you to use as our guest. If it rains...no worries, kids and adults can enjoy the water park with it's indoor hot tub, lazy river and slides.

We aim to provide the perfect value. We want guests to walk into one of our cabin and be happy they chose it. We also want them to be thankful to have everything they need while they are away from home. We want everyone in their party to sleep comfortably and we want them to have an awesome time! But most importantly, we strive to help guests value the experience enough to come see us again.

WHY PAY $200 PLUS FOR A HOTEL ROOM? We have a cabin that sleeps at least 12 with a full kitchen. You will save money on having to eat out every night while having plenty of room for everyone. A lot of people share the cabin with other families. Normally there are kayaks to use on the pond located just outside our door, as well as balls and gloves.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This cabin was perfect for our family! The location on the pond made all the difference. The kids fished and kayaked right our our back door. The cabin was immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. The price was very reasonable compared to other resorts and having passes provided to the water park was a great bonus. Will definitely return!!

SUBERB!!!!! WE WILL STAY HERE AGAIN AND AGAIN!!

  • 5 of 5

From the first day we contacted Shaun I knew this was the place for us. She was SO helpful with every question I had (and believe me..I had a lot)!! lol The details of the rental went exactly as she explained. She had a very easy to read rental agreement and sent a booking confirmation the day we sent her the rental agreement back.

The cabin exceeded our expectations. It was so clean you could eat almost off the floor (I'm not kidding)! She even had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. We had two families staying and both families had our own separate living quarters. (One took the upstairs huge loft with full bath and the other the down.) My husband had some work emails and the WIFI really came in handy. There are a lot of cabins to choose from; and I am SO glad we choose this one; if for nothing else...the LOCATION! It was centrally located so it was close enough to walk to the water park, close enough (across the street) from an out door pool; and BEST of all...right ON the pond!! There were two kayaks, paddles and life vests provided in the garage for our use. The kids spent hours and hours in those kayaks paddling around the pond. Dad had a great time fishing in that same pond with our youngest, since he didn't want to kayak. We enjoyed evenings on the deck overlooking the pond and grilling out. The kitchen was stocked to the fullest. All you have to bring is your own food. Since we all arrived at different times, it was really helpful to have the four car driveway so we didn't have to worry about parking. My husband got up each morning and enjoyed the free workout facility at Bridges Bay. Since we had a range of children, it was really nice that the water park accomodated all ages. The very little ones stayed by the play slides while the older kids enjoyed the larger slides and the lazy river. My husband and I even got away alone one night to hang out in the hot tub. We will definitely be back!!!!

The property was a good fit for our family. For the most part everything worked well.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Okoboji and the convenience staying at one location together. The only problem we had was with the sliding screen door, it would tend to bind up once in awhile and fall off the track.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you liked the cabin in most everything went well for you! I just had that screen door replaced the day before you checked it. I wish you would've let me no you were having issues with it and I would have had them come back out and fix it. Thanks for letting me know now and I'll make sure it's fixed for the next renters. You were great renters and would love to have you back anytime!

Very nice place to stay but definitely needs some organizing.

  • 4 of 5

Numerous household items strewn throughout all the cabinets/drawers in the bathrooms, kitchen, closets and garage. Some rhyme and reason would do the place (and especially the people staying) a lot of good.

Everything was clean and we had everything we needed.

The condo met our needs. The picture lead me to believe we were very close to the lake. We had a problem with a backed up toilet and the owner had it fixed right away. Our only complaint was rainy cold weather which cannot be controlled

Owner's Response: I'm so glad the cabin met your needs and we are happy you choose our cabin to stay in! It's too bad the weather didn't cooperate for you. So many of our guests are grateful they are staying at Bridge's Bay for that reason. There is an indoor water park to help entertain on those rainy days. For future guests; to see how far we are from the lake; simply click on the map. It will show you the distance. It is even more clear if you click on "satellite view". We hope to have you back in the future!

Why rent a condo or a hotel room when you can rent a free standing cabin in a fun resort for less, and not have to spend money on restaurants or even worse….wait in their long lines? Most of the vacationers that stay at our cabin say they plan on returning. That speaks for itself.
