Our beautiful, private, lakefront home is a great place to take the family and enjoy swimming, fishing, kayaking and watching the eagles sore overhead. A modern kitchen includes a full set of appliances, along with laundry available on site. Enjoy the sandy beach area and dock with ample area to dock your boat. A 14 foot fishing boat, kayaks and paddle boat are also available to rent.
Appreciated the privacy this location offered. Also liked having a laundry room and the many bedrooms. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Would recommend this place to others.
This is a Lake Home - not a cabin. We were delighted when we first entered the home. We had every thing we needed, lots of space inside. and a very peaceful outdoor either seating or eating, whichever you wanted to do. All appliances seemed newer and worked perfectly. The lake is small, but it made it easier for kayaking, paddle boating, since the smaller lake size kept large waves from developing. It is a very relaxing, comfortable home. We had a wonderful time.
Our party of six adults and five children found the Balm Vista house to be well stocked, and roomy enough for everyone to spread out and relax. It was a great benefit to have two bathrooms, which is tough to find in this price point. Being able to do laundry while there was a plus. The property's dock and floating gazebo were a highlight for the kids, as they were able to catch sunfish virtually every time they cast their lines. The water was so clear you could watch the fish take the bait! A drawback to this lake was that the sunfish and the occasional small bass was all we caught. There wasn't much for bigger fish, which might explain the surprising lack of boaters/fishermen there during our stay. Another drawback of the lake was a very muddy bottom and lots of shells to cut little feet. Definitely wear footwear if you plan to swim in it! The owners do provide kayaks and a peddle boat for a fee, and these were wonderful to have. We definitely used them to explore the lake and enjoy the scenery around the shore. The nearest "large" town (Bemidji) is about a half hour drive away. We visited a few times to explore the quaint downtown boutiques, souvenir shops, and restock on groceries. Overall, this is a good property if your intention is to just get away from it all for awhile, and aren't hung up on catching trophy fish or having a sandy bottom swim area for the little ones.
We had a great time at Balm Lake Vista. The location was very private and we were able to enjoy ourselves without the hustle and bustle that some lakes have. Angela was very receptive of all of our questions and answered them professionally and quickly. We enjoyed fishing and swimming in the lake and overall had a blast. We will definitely be back!
We had a fantastic time at this house! It was just the place our family needed to spread out and relax after days on the road in different hotels each night enroute to our new home. It was a large and private property with a very private boat dock. Could hear, but not really see neighbors. Lake was very quiet also, especially during the week. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and paper products, which was very helpful for us as we had only enough room in the car to get a week's worth of groceries in! Kids enjoyed the football table, paddle boat and kayaks as well as the shallow swimming area. Lots of great games available too! Thanks again for sharing your home!
We had a wonderful time at the cabin. The fishing was really great! From crappie to walleye you name it we caught it. The cabin was very roomy. The really great thing that comes with the cabin is the fish cleaning house! We really put that to good use. We have been renting houses for 10 years and this one is one of the best for the buck! We will be returning.
