Members of our family enjoyed our stay--nice accommodations at a very reasonable rate. Only 2 1/2 miles from Crosslake. The owners were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. We are considering gathering here again next year.
This property is exactly as advertised. The lake is private and quiet, perfect for taking out the included pontoon! The little beach and play area are great for little kids while bigger kids will enjoy exploring the yard and woods, jumping off the dock into the lake and relaxing in the hammock. The patio with charcoal grill was the perfect place for meals and relaxing between swims. Ample eating space and roomy kitchen inside. Overall, our whole group (9 adults and 5 kids) had a fantastic weekend!
We spent a few nights over memorial day weekend 2016. The cabin itself was in amazing condition and you definitely can tell Julie/Larry maintain the property with only the highest standards. They were both easily accessible for questions and concerns before and during our stay. The pontoon as apart of the rental price was a great touch and one of the "x-factors" that was used in our decision on where to book. Lovely place, very quaint, and again, highly recommended.
Thanks so much!
This was a lovely place and super spacious for large or small groups. There was about 13 of us and plenty of places to hangout during the day, and space to sleep at night. Place also comes with a free pontoon rental. Really secluded, but close enough to stores if we needed to make a run. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants the great experience that we had.
Love love this place! The house was very beautiful and well organized! A very friendly backyard to hang out and enjoy the scenery of the lake! The place also offers free pontoon with life jackets. The house is not far from the liquor and grocery stores so it was convenient to make trips. I would recommend this place to anyone!
