About Mark Nowlin

The Doll House on the Point is enjoyed by two families. Two brothers and their wives decided they wanted a place for all the kids, cousins, and friends to grow up fishing, swimming, tubing, waterskiing and to spend more time as a family.

Mark Nowlin purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Nowlin chose Minnesota

We are the 5th generation to own a property on South Center Lake. The lake is very special to our family and it will be to yours as well. Lindstrom is conveniently located only 35 minutes from the Twin Cities metro area yet you feel like you are up north every minute you spend on the lake.

What makes this house unique

Only steps from the beach and water and lake views from every room! 2 kayaks with paddles and a pedal boat are included..

Absolutely stunning location, plenty of space both inside and outside!

  • 5 of 5

The entire operation is run like a well oiled machine, allowing us to focus on the vacation itself instead of the details such as payments, property access, etc. The property is amazing, and a pretty quick drive from the Twin Cities. There was ample space inside the house, and very clear instructions for who to contact if any issues should arise.

Simply put, I would love to use this rental again, and recommend it to anyone!

Thanks!

Lovely home on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week here with our large family and it was wonderful! It was very clean, comfortable and lots of room so that everyone had their own space. The deck and large yard and sandy beach were incredible! We'd definitely stay again!

Wonderful getaway for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great lake home to rent for a girls weekend getaway. The location is perfect, less than an hour away from the cities. The owners and Kelly we incredibly responsive and accommodating to our miscellaneous requests and questions! There were plenty of bathrooms (for a large group a women) and comfortable places for our entire group to sleep! The lakeside seating, brand new deck, grill and fire pit were all fabulous extras that made our stay more relaxing. I will definitely keep this rental in mind for future weekend getaways!

Beautiful location, fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house! We rent probably 15 times a year for work and pleasure and this was one of our favorite properties. The Owners & Kellie were very responsive to any questions/needs we might have had. Kellie went out of her way to help us out after we had checked out and forgotten a very special item, THANK YOU!

The location is great, very quiet and secluded without being out in the sticks. The house had plenty of space for everyone to spread out and more importantly, plenty of showers for everyone. In addition to all the beds, there were also several air mattresses and a roll-away for groups larger than ours. Would highly recommend this property.

Thanks for the EAGLES.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time on Center Lake with our family. Just a quick 6 hours and one Culver's stop from Chicago and we were there. Doesn't get any easier. We launched our jet ski right when we got there and into the warm water we went. We launched the jet ski right from the property thanks to the beach front property access. We were also able to beach the jet ski right on property all week. Also super easy. Catching the huge northern pike and eating it for dinner, that was just a bonus. Huge house. Very nice owners. Fully stocked and very clean. We will be back for sure.
