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 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!!

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!!!!

Roomy and cozy with lots of amenities!

We were pleased with the stay in cabin 32!! It was clean, well stocked with enough bedding and towels, a margarita mixer, spices, and basic necessities (other than the paper items). There was plenty of room to accommodate our party. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay. Shawn was easy to work with and was great at communicating. We were just 5 minutes from the main attraction areas and that was great because there was less traffic and it was pretty mellow. We will definitely be returning to cabin 32 again in the summer!! Thanks for a great place and all the accommodations.

What a beautiful cabin to hang out with family. We had our kids and grandchildren and couldn't ask for a better place. We cooked a lot and also ate at wonderful places we walked to. The indoor water park was a added bonus. We are booked for another time at this place!!

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.
