Our guesthouse is approximately 400 square feet organized as a studio apartment above our garage. It is fully air conditioned and supplied with all the amenities of any modern apartment. Constructed in 2015, the property is on East Lake Okoboji. Experience the stunning sunrises from our east facing lake frontage and enjoy shaded days on our patios in the comfort of our Adirondack chairs, on the dock, or in the lake itself.
In addition to the guesthouse quarters, there is ample space and seating to relax and grill outside the guesthouse or on a beautifully appointed outdoor patio near the lake. Enjoy the dock and go for a swim or use our kayaks.
We occupy the main home most weekends during the available periods and often during the weekdays. We enjoy interaction with travelers and vacationers. As property owners on the Lake for 20 years, we are happy to offer you tips and guidance about area attractions, dining, things to do and places to see during your stay.
Located on the Francis Sites Area of East Lake Okoboji, our neighborhood is pleasant with many of our neighbors living there year round. We are close to the Barefoot Bar and the city of Spirit Lake with grocery stores and the downtown area less than 2 miles away. There is a public lake access with a modern boat ramp and parking (overnight allowed) for your boat about 2 miles away. Arnolds Park and the City of Okoboji are about a 3 mile drive.
We are within easy driving distance of the area attractions or take advantage of the 2 local taxi services offering rides to or from any where in the Lakes area for approximately $5 per person around the clock.
Other things to note
As parking is often in short supply during summer weekends, we ask you use only one parking space in front of the garage. The entire home and guesthouse was constructed in 2014-2015 and is beautifully appointed inside and out in Cape Cod style. A smart TV is provided and there is free wifi but no cable TV or programming in the guesthouse.

Ideal Lakeside Location
Although we visited during off season and experienced record low spring temperatures, we were absolutely thrilled by our cozy accommodations! All the details are new, clean, and beautiful! Hope we can enjoy it again soon, and get to experience more of the great outdoor activities!
Kevin and Barb were wonderful guests and were very respectful of our property. We would welcome them back any time!
