About Dave Peterson

We live an hours drive west of the lake home and have spent many wonderful summers and winters at our home away from home. We cherish our time together at 'the cabin'.

Dave Peterson purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Dave Peterson chose Mille Lacs Lake

This property was purchased to be near longtime friends and because we fell in love with the area and all it has to offer. Our children spend countless hours fishing off the dock and the cabin is accessible to so many different places. We enjoy all activities at nearby Izaty's Resort and love that we are so close but have our own home to go back to.

What makes this cabin unique

We tore down the original 'fishing shack' in 2003 and built the new log style cabin in 2004. It has been a true labor of love. We are especially proud of our beautiful gas fireplace. We enjoy the peaceful nights at the cabin and love all the activities during the day.

Amazing cabin and perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at this cabin in August with our kids, and another couple with their kids. In summary, we will definitely be going back and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway on Lake Mille Lacs!

The cabin is spacious, modern but rustic with a very warm feel (amazing fireplace and woodwork throughout!), and located in a very quiet and laid back neighborhood. We found it in immaculate condition, practically seemed brand new. Very clean kept! TVs in every room made it easy for down time or for when the kids needed a rest, with a vast supply of movies and even video games (we didn't use those since our kids are all little). The kitchen and dining area were perfect, including a gas grill made available to us, even though we ate most of our meals outside at the picnic table or in the front yard overlooking the bay.

Outside is a spacious front and back yard with a great fire pit and plenty of chairs. The available lawn games made for a fun weekend! Just across the very quiet neighborhood drive (I don't remember seeing any cars drive by, only the occasional waving passerby in their golf cart!) was the private dock in a seemingly always calm bay of Mille Lacs--the kids caught tons of fish and had a blast! A 2-3 minute drive is Izatys resort, and a bar/grill/restaurant is within walking distance! The location seemed to have a sort of north woods-island feel.

The owner is also extremely accommodating, and made sure we had everything we needed. Check in and check out, as well as payment was stress free. As I said above, we had absolutely no complaints and will be returning hopefully sooner rather than later!

Great home for family relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at the cabin home. Dave was very accommodating and responsive to our questions and needs. Plenty of space in the house and everything very clean and well done. We have a 3 year old and 9 month old, there were toys for both them as well as a very nice crib and bunk bed. Highly recommend.

Summer motorcycle getaway

  • 5 of 5

We found this property very clean and well cared for. We felt at home the moment we walked in the door. We look for a place to stay for a week each summer as our home base and take day rides from there. The cabin worked perfectly for that. Every morning started with a walk in the quiet neighborhood and we enjoyed coming "home" each day to a peaceful evening where we sat by the lake, then enjoyed a game of cards indoors. Dave was great to work with and helpful in every way.

Convenient and carefree

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and in great condition. It was the perfect setting for a girls weekend. The owner Dave was very helpful and friendly. When asked he was able to provide a phone number for a shuttle service and he responded to my inquiries quickly.. Our trip was so successful I am already planning on coming back. Thanks for a great time!

Wonderful family time!

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults and four children) spent four nights at this beautiful property. Working with Dave was a pleasure, as he was quick to respond to any questions we had and was attentive to our needs. The cabin is very comfortable and supplied us with the space needed for the number of people we had. Check in is set up with a code to gain entry into a lock box with the house key. This makes it easy to arrive at your convenience and not have to worry about a "meeting" time to gain entry. A well supplied kitchen made it easy to create meals. Dave contacted us prior to our stay to let us know the dishwasher had broken and couldn't be replaced prior to our arrival. This wasn't an issue for us and allowed us even more time to talk while cleaning up together. There are a number of indoor and outdoor games provided along with movies to keep you occupied, but our biggest activity was fishing off the dock. We caught sunfish, perch and bass. We did a catch and release, but would have been able to keep quite a few if we'd wanted. We brought kayaks and a canoe which we we able to use once or twice only due to wind conditions. It is a little difficult launching because of the rocks that line the lake to prevent erosion, but where there's a will, there's a way. As a recommendation for future guests, I would say to bring hand soap and paper towels. There wasn't enough liquid hand soap when we arrived, so we had to go to the market to buy some. There were additional paper towels in one of the closets but we were uncertain if they were meant for guest use, so we purchased those also. We were able to have a barbecue one evening and the propane is included with the grill which made it very convenient to do. We also had a bonfire one night. The firewood is provided and the fire pit has around a dozen adirondek chairs circling it allowing for everyone a place to sit and enjoy the fire. I can't say enough about this property and the memories that can be made here!
