Great place for a large family vacation
Fantastic home located on a beautiful lake that accommodated a large family vacation.
A beautiful log home on an amazing lake. You can tell by the detail and thought put into this home that it is not just another rental property. This is a special place to share with family and friends.
End of July stay
This property was fantastic, and exactly as advertised. We have a large group (12 of us!) and we have stayed at many VRBO properties over the years. This was the nicest by far. Matt was very helpful in recommending restaurants and nearby attractions and we LOVED our stay.
Incredible home - great stay
Matt’s home is simply amazing. The log architecture throughout brings you to the north woods in grand style. Pictures actually do not do the home justice. The home is very spacious. It says it sleeps 16, but it can sleep more easily. We were a party of 14 and were more than comfortable. Our entire party congregated in the ample kitchen and great room very comfortably for dinner, a roaring fire and conversation. The resident (20 yards away) eagles are just so cool. Matt was as gracious a host as you could want. There are multiple great restaurants within 20 min, including Hillside resort on the lake for a great Sunday broasted chicken dinner or Friday fish fry. Matt introduced me to Rob at Hillside who hooked us up with a great fishing boat. Thank you for a great vacation.
Beautiful home and fabulous lake
The home has plenty of room for a large group. At one time we had 9 adults and 6 children (ages 1 month - 10) and no one was feeling cramped. The bedrooms are very large and with only 2 on each floor there is spaciousness and privacy for all. There is an additional apartment over the garage which we didn't need but could have easily overflowed to that area. An open kitchen for cooking with all of the amenities you will need and plenty of room both inside and out for all to find seating to eat or just relax. Morning coffee was had on the large deck overlooking the lake.
Much time was spent on the lake soaking up the sun, jet skiing, pontooning, swimming, tubing and fishing. We found a large sandbar north of the property where we could anchor with the pontoon.
We saw 3 bald eagle nests, one of which what just to the east of the property, each with young ones that we witnessed being fed and practice their newfound flying skills. Mornings were spent listening to the loons calling as we sat on the deck.
The owner Matt or his agent David were easily accessible either by phone or email. Thank you Matt for allowing us to use your home for our family vacation!!
One of the best experiences of my life! The home itself is a masterpiece of design on a beautiful lake with nothing around you but snow, trees and always groomed snow trails. 3 floors of non-adjoining bedrooms with multiple gathering spaces and a massive upper and lower deck in the rear. The main living room has an open floor plan with soaring, 25 ft ceilings and a massive chef's kitchen. Worth the trip to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and reset, relax and enjoy the beauty of nature in it's perfect form. HIGHLY recommend this magnificent property for your next vacation!
