                    Our stay granted some great family memories. We enjoyed the slope to the lake, which was nice and flat and close to the cabin. The time we spent cleaning windows so we could get a view of the beautiful lake was disappointing. We baked cookies to make the cabin smell like home, which again created some great memories. The fishing was good and the owners were helpful and friendly. To the owners credit, they had just hired a new cleaning service, so maybe a new cleaning service will assist in improving the stay at Lake Pokegama.

                    We did enjoy our stay at your home. It was large enough for our group of 11. Although next year we might have 4 more.. It was a little more expensive than our family budget. We did notice your ad says pets are not allowed, but our neighbors had 2 dogs. We did catch fish for a fish fry, and they were good.

                    Our two families have been coming to Lake Pokegama for 10 years over the July 4th holiday to visit friends and play on the lake. There are 8 of us total, 4 adults & 4 kids. The Beach House (the larger of the owner's 3 properties) is perfect for our two families, given its two separate living spaces. We didn't use the 2nd kitchen much (but the extra fridge was great!), but we often set the kids up in the 2nd living area for downtime, playing, sleeping, watching TV, etc. The kid's loft is great! Perfect for toddlers and up, the beds were nice and low. It was also nice to be able to have the younger kids nap in one part of the house and not be disturbed by the older kids in the other part of the house. The DVD player wasn't working while we were there but everything else was just as advertised. We loved having a private dock to tie our boat to. The kids also enjoyed the Rave (water tramp) and the firepit. The beach access from this cabin and the smaller one next to it is wonderful - flat, grassy, no drop-off to the water. So the kids could wade and swim very easily. The owners were staying in one of the smaller cabins while we were there, and they were great. They made us feel at home and were very sweet to our kids who kept wandering over to say hello ;) They have been making updates and improvements to all of the houses - we can't wait to see what they do next! Overall it was a great rental, we were glad to find it! It's hard to find rentals on the lake, especially ones this size - 5 bedrooms! Thanks again.

                    This is the place to stay if you're coming to Pokegama. We've been up here many times and each time we are awed by the view of the lake. As others have said the level lake shore is a huge plus, as we had little children and senior citizens in our group. Even with the flood of the century the water was clear and had gone down quite a bit from when we arrived. Our family loves fishing and watersports so it was great to have kayaks, the RAVE and a pontoon boat (we rented from the owner) at our disposal. You couldn't ask for better property owners, they are always upgrading the properties. In this cabin there was new furniture and flooring from the last time we were here. In cabin 3 (VRBO #301888) they remodeled and changed the porch into a living room with all new furniture and a view to die for. In cabin 2 (VRBO #352786) they remodeled the kitchen and living room. I can't wait to see what they do next! So the bottom line is, if you think you are going to find a better place to stay on Pokegama you're wrong! These 3 places are cute with level lake shore, tons of things to do with great property owners. Next year we are renting all three cabins and the rest of our family from Colorado, Arizona and Florida are joining us.

                    Level Lakeshore is not something you think about until you are actually at the lake. My Mom who is 83 years old joined our family for summer vacation at this property and spent quite a bit of time sitting in her beach chair IN THE WATER! After touring the lake on a pontoon that we rented (from a vendor recommended by the owner) I had two big take aways;First, this lake literally has EVERYTHING....restaurants, beaches, islands, clear water, great recreation, great fishing, and hardly has any boat traffic. Second, I will never forget my Mom's comment as we toured the lake on the pontoon "I'm so glad we are staying at a place with level lakeshore.....if there were steps to the lake like so many of these places, I would not be able to enjoy the water." ........PRICELESS!!! We will be back for sure and highly recommend to anyone,

                    We have been vacationing in the Grand Rapids area for the past 20+ years. As our family has grown so has the need to accommodate a number of "desires" - everything from level lake shore, sandy beach, clean accommodations, to attractions that we can do at the lake without traveling by car. THIS IS THE PLACE!! The buildings are cute, very clean, and the location on Pokegama is absolutely wonderful. We boated over to the golf course several times for dinner anc cocktails. One night was with the kids at Zorbaz for beach volleyball and pizza. The owners are first class and want to make sure that your stay is memorable. We will definetely be coming back

                    Our family rented this home for our vacation and we couldn't be happier with our decision! There were 15 of us, 7 under 11 years old and we just had a wonderful time! The loft was perfect for the kiddos, they got their own little beds, and each couple had their own room. Very Clean! The 2 kitchen areas were rally nice, as well as the 2 full size refrigerators. We had amazing weather! Because of floods the "beach" plus some was covered with water, but that didn't stop us from having a great time! The owners are so great and truly wanted you to have a good stay, they care about you and your vacation (from experiences elsewhere it is hard to find good renters or management) and would defiantly book with them again! This was a great week for us family, and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation! Thanks again!!!

                    We had never stayed on Pokegama Lake although I grew up in Grand Rapids. The lake is wonderful with great fishing and scenery. Launching the boat near by and leaving it at the dock could not be more convenient. The cabin is roomy, the deck is huge, and the owners were very accomodating on short notice. The view from the cabin is spectacular--wide open with long water views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: My wife and I grew-up in the outdoors - we love to boat, fish, hunt, camp, and sit by the campfire telling stories. Some of our fondest memories as kids growing-up was packing the car to go to Uncle Buzz' cabin on the lake for a week of fun. This experience, and the memories they created, was something my wife and I wanted to pass onto our children. We started with the cabin 'in the middle' but over the years, the owners to our 'right' and to our 'left' wanted to sell their properties. We now have more cabins than we will ever use personally and would like to share them with other families who share our values. Our little 'retreat' now has 6+ acres of privacy and over 575' of level, sandy lakeshore. It is truly our little slice of heaven.....

                  Why the Owner Chose Grand Rapids:
                  Lake Pokegama is one of the premier lakes in Minnesota and offers multiple amenities. We are within(6) miles of downtown Grand Rapids, at the end of a quiet dead-end street, and have level lakeshore. The cabin is simple, clean, and has a million dollar view!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  You will be challenged to experience all of the lakeshore and waterway in one week. Most of the lake traffic occurs on the weekend's, offering a quiet retreat during the week. When it's windy, there is always a protected bay to enjoy. At the end of the week, it will be tough to go home.
