Great location, beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was nice, cozy, with a beautiful picture window view of the river. Kitchen was sufficiently furnished for all meals. Fireplace was a nice touch. Kids loved playing with the toys. Owner was very responsive. We were able to ski to the snowmobile trails, which was nice and were able to get to some ORV trails to ski on on the other side of the highway. The wifi was great to have as well. Fun was had by all.

Up north vacay

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a up north home on a beautiful lot then look no further. This was our first time renting a home and we were more than pleased. The home is dated but it adds to the "up north" cabin feel. We were even able to add an extra night on last minute. I will be looking forward to returning next year in warmer weather. We had colder weather but the fireplace made for cozy nights and the starry skies are much better than the city view we are use to. Thanks again for the visit!!!

Perfect Spot

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our group of 3 couples getting away for a weekend of 4 wheeling. The cabin was a perfect fit for our group with its awesome view of the river and a nice big deck to relax on after a day on the trails. Easy access to the trail head at the end of the road was fantastic. No trailering was priceless. The cabin was well equipped and the owner was great to work with and had a speedy response to every question we had. We will be returning to this cabin.

Great Spot for Fishing

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us stayed here May 13-17 for our yearly trout fishing trip on the Sturgeon River. We are a group of 30-somethings that have been returning to the area for the past 10 years. We usually camp in nearby Haakwood campground, but collectively felt we needed something a little more comfortable. This quaint little cabin suited us rather well. It is rather rustic, but has nearly all of the comforts of home. The river is LITERALLY less than 35' from the back deck. We even caught four trout within view of the cabin! The caretaker was around on the first day to cover up some plants due to frost-he seemed very nice but didn't intrude on our stay whatsoever. We will definitely be returning next year.
