Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the wonderful privilege of staying in this vacation rental property for three nights over the 2015 Labor Day weekend. When we arrived the house and garage were "move in" ready.

There were 12 adults in our 60s & 70s in our party. This house was quiet, peaceful and homey. We have been seasonal residents of the Lake Okoboji / Spirit Lake region for nearly 30 years and couldn't believe how peaceful and quiet this place was on one of the three major summer holiday weekends......unbelievable!!! An outstanding retreat from the hustle and bustle of the lakes region. The property owners are very cordial and their word is good. The price is fair when you consider everything that you get for the buck. A wonderful and easily accessible adult retreat.

We highly recommend staying here.

Neff 50th Anniversary Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was made for family fun! We were appreciative of no steps out to the lake for us seniors. The dock, boat hoist, and ladder made our vacation centered around the water. Just perfect! Although there are tons of games and puzzles inside, we had great weather and didn't need to be indoors except for sleeping and meals. We all hiked on the trails, right to the ice cream store. We will definitely rent here again when we are ready for another Lake time.

Our family gathered at this lovely lake home to relive memories of our summers at Big Spirit Lake back in the 60's and 70's. Our group of 12 ranged in age from 5 years to 84 years young. We had the perfect three days in this lakefront home. We enjoyed lots of laughs on the shaded lakefront deck, watched sunsets, excellent fishing on the dock, and the level lakefront grassy yard made walking our kayaks into the lake a breeze! The two little boys were constantly busy either in the playhouse, riding the bikes found in the garage, fishing, catching toads, or playing in the giant sandbox! We even found the Twister game amongst the many games in the house and had a lot of fun. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals for a large group and a nice BIG refrigerator. The washer and dryer was very convenient and quiet. Plenty of lawn chairs for all, nice round picnic table on the deck, and loved the "splinter-free" dock! Our 84 year old father enjoyed being able to ride his power scooter onto the dock to fish. He placed a piece of flat firewood found on the deck on the grass in front of the dock and was able to easily drive the power scooter onto the dock from the lawn. So nice to have access onto the dock and not have to worry about steps. Our 82 year old mother played the piano which was so very special to all since she suffered a stroke earlier in the year that caused weakness in her hand. This quiet lakefront property with enough space inside and out for our group of 12 provided us with memories of a lifetime! P.S. There is plenty of parking in the large driveway for five vehicles. Thank you, Ella, for all the helpful detailed information. -Denise and family

Owner's Response: So glad you had a wonderful time. We will look at making a better approach to the dock for a power scooter, so that you don't have to hunt for a piece of lumber. Thank you for relaying that. It is always good to be able to relax with a fish pole dangling in the water at the end of the dock ...young or old with conversation in between. Be blessed with your memories.

Very nice little get away

  • 4 of 5

Trip was very good. Fishing was not good at all but that was the only downside to it. We forgot some games there and since it turned into a bit of a hassle to get them returned we will hopefully get them back next time we stay.

Owner's Response: Since the customer chose not to pay for shipping and handling, & said "That's Ok, we'll pick them up when we come again", those items were placed in storage for their safe keeping until they come next year. Glad they had a good trip.

great home nice views

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home on Spirit Lake for a week this summer. It was a wonderful, cozy home with awesome views of Spirit Lake. The home has a lovely deck that we all could sit around and enjoy. We had plenty of room for sleeping. A big plus was the stackable washer and dryer in one of the two bathrooms. We were able to do laundry and not take home a lot of dirty clothes. We would highly recommend this home. The owners were terrific--hope to rent this home again.

Family fishing week!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your lake house. Plenty to do to keep busy and have fun. The lake was a great temperature so our 9 grandchildren had lots of fun swimming. We have lots of fishermen/women in our family and so the dock was almost always busy with someone fishing. The boat lift was great for our bass boat. The bikes were used to get to the ice cream shop and the free library. The deck was great for setting, visiting, watching the lake activity, roasting marsh mellows, feeding the kids, painting pictures of the lake, etc. We even got in on a concert by The Martins and Mark Lowry in Arnold's Park and a movie in the park sitting on the grass. Fun shopping in local stores. A great week for my husband and I, our three girls, two of their husbands and 9 children.
