About Mark Nowlin, David 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 to grow up fishing, swimming, tubing, and to spend more time as a family.

Mark Nowlin, David Nowlin purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Nowlin, David 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!

Great location. Nice property. Sleeps 15 is a stretch for adults.

  • 4 of 5

Location is great. On peninsula with water on three sides. Property is well maintained and very nice kitchen.

We had eight adult men and one had to sleep on living room couch. Master, one bed. 2nd bedroom, one bed. 3rd bedroom, one bed with couch but not pullout. One rollaway bed. One crib. 4th bedroom, four bunk beds made for kids and very thin mattresses. We had to put two mattresses in in two bunks to make half way comfortable. Room directly off living room and subject to living room noise one trundle and one crib. There were inflatable mattresses, but no air pump we could find. Eighth person slept on LR couch. Originally planned for 10 adults. Grateful two did not attend. Would have been sleeping on floor.

Did not use patio, grill, fire pit or boat dock due to one of year.

Deposit was refunded promptly. Note the charges for using credit card though. Seemed high to us.

Great for families with six adults max and others being children in my opinion.

Very nice and family friendly area in general.

Would rebook with different demographic of attendees.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this cabin. Water on 3 sides, view out every window. The cabin is near a lot of other properties so if you are looking for remote woodsy experience this isn't quite it- but if you want a VERY clean and spacious cabin with comfortable beds, well equipped updated kitchen and baths, close to Mpls. and comfortable for kids- this is it! Lots to do in the area- great hiking, biking and eating and we even caught a fish!

Beyond Fun

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such an amazing week allowing for friends to catch up and play in the water all week. We brought our jet ski up with us and had a blast riding all over the beautiful Center Lakes. I could sit and watch the numerous bald eagles from the jet ski forever. So majestic. Being able to beach the jet ski on the sandy beach all week was so easy. Our group of 12 all had our own bedroom and the kids piled into the bunk bed room. Now that is what I call a vacation. One of my favorite memories of the week was a sunset cruise on the kayaks with my husband. Quiet, stunningly beautiful, and one of those sunsets that we will never forget. We ate outside many of our meals and everyone loved the week. We booked for next summer already. Can't wait.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this property and just a good as the first time, if not better. The location cannot be beat; dead end street (quiet and safe for kids) with water on all three side of the property. The sandy beach is terrific and the addition of new water toys was a nice touch.

The kitchen is appointed with everything you'll need. New this year was the addition of a huge leather sectional in the living room. The beds were comfy and the house was clean and well maintained.

Loved it so much that we already made our return reservations for summer 2016. Can't wait!!!!
