Our groups second stay.
This is the second time our group of xc country skiers and snowshoers stayed at this location. It is convenient to many trail locations. The cabin is very comfortable and homey. We especially appreciated the long driveway being plowed by the huge front in loader in timely fashion so we could drive out. The snow is magnificent this year!
Cabin needs some attention to detail
We have rented several cabins in this area over the years in the same price range and I would rate this cabin average at best.
The first thing we noticed when we walked in was the poor condition the hardwood floor is in. It definitely needs sanded down and refinished. The second major drawback is the kitchen. It looked like a 1980's DIY job gone bad. The cupboard door and drawers were all very crooked and did not fit the box. Very poor job on installation. The tiles on kitchen floor were worn and need updated.
This cabin is definitely not Rustic Luxury as advertised. Other cabins we have stayed at were up to date and very nice. While this cabin was comfortable, it needs updated (especially the kitchen). The walls in hallway need either washed down or a fresh paint job. The fireplace could be beautiful, however, owners have not removed the smoke stains from the stones. A simple fix! Similiar instance in the kitchen - if you are going to remove a cupboard door to make open shelving, remove the hinges too!
Also the contraption on the wall next the microwave was filthy. Door to sunroom was rusty - replace it or paint it! Whatever was removed in kitchen (trash compactor maybe?) needs to have a nice replacement piece put on - not a piece of particle board!
The yard going to lake was still full of summer lawn chairs, etc. It was messy and not
a pleasant sight to enjoy.
That said, the structure of the cabin is nice, the sofa and love seat were comfortable as were the beds. The kitchen was adequately stocked and table and chairs were nice and comfortable.
As I said, I am comparing this to other places we have stayed and it simply doesn't measure up. If this type of stuff doesn't bother you, it's an okay place to stay and would be ideal to stay in the summer with direct access to the lake. However, luxury it is not.
Very nice cabin that we will rent again and we even caught a few walleye and a nice northern.
Great place. I'd highly recommend it. Plenty of privacy, nice fireplace inside and a fire pit outside when we had tip ups out.
The cabin is really tucked back, would be awesome in summer. Very cozy yet had lots of space and nooks and crannies to accommodate whole family. It was very clean and well equipped but felt lived in and homey.
My husband loved the rustic, older feel and I loved all the conveniences of home. We loved the 4 season porch, spent lots of time out there! Great family Thanksgiving.
Relaxing Fall Getaway
We had such a wonderful time at this amazing cabin! As nice as the pictures are they do not do this palace justice, it is much more impressive in person. We enjoyed a long weekend taking in the fall colors, exploring the surrounding area, and having warm fires at night. The best part was that we were able to have our dogs with us for the trip. Can't wait to come back!
Very beautiful setting, well appointed, thank you.
Very comfortable, lots of room, a beautiful setting, great private site and a terrific pier. Very relaxing.
