Big Sandy Lake cabin description

Beautiful log home on the Prairie River waiting for you to rent. This home has a little bit of everything.
One step in this home and you won't want to leave! There are 2 king, 13 queen and 11 double beds in this home. Plus a futon located in the great room. In the kitchen there is room at the table for 18 at the table and 5 at the breakfast bar.
There is a full gourmet kitchen, theater room, bar room (with several video games) pool table room, 2 laundry rooms, sun room and a beautiful great room. With the rental also comes a hot tub. There is also a large floating dock where you can dock your boat (boat launch is roughly a mile away).

***Please know there are a lot of scammers out there - you need to speak with me in order to reserve your dates. Also - we DO NOT accept wire transfers and you shouldn't wire transfer for any vacation rental unless you are absolutely certain it is going towards your reservation. You will not be able to get your money back (see 'rates').

Family Reunions: Consider us for your next family reunion. Plenty of parking and places for people to sleep. The decks have underdecking so if it happens to rain you are protected and there is plenty of room to set up chairs and tables for your guests. Even room if you wanted to bring your own DJ! There is a sound system throughout the cabin to play your own music too from your Ipod or through Sirus Satellite which comes in through the TV to the speakers.
Huge yard for setting up a volleyball net or to play some bocce ball! Great quiet setting for everyone to catch up on what has been happening in their lives. There are 2 nice sized picnic tables on the deck but there is ample room for you to set up tables and chairs for your family to sit and be comfortable. The dock is an oversized floating dock with plenty of room for you to bring your boat and tie up to it. The boat launch is roughly a mile away - directions to the launch will be in the cabin.

We are located 7 miles north of town and 5 miles east on the Prairie River.

Corporate Retreats/Company Parties: You will be a hit at your company if you decide to have your next corporate retreat here! Lots of parking, a bar to set up your beverages, a patio to set up your tables and chairs, video games, theater room, pool table... the possibilities are endless. There is a golf course roughly 8 miles away for your guests if they choose. You can bring your boats and tie up to the dock and bring your guests out fishing on Big Sandy Lake or idle up and down the river for a quiet relaxing evening. If it happens to rain the decks have underdecking installed so you are protected from the rain and can still sit outside and enjoy the fresh air if you don't happen to be busy with watching movies in the theater!
If it calls for it you can set up your own DJ in the bar or right outside the bar door! There is a sound system throughout the cabin in case you want to play your own music off of your Ipod or through Sirus Satellite which comes in through the TV to the speakers.

Scrapbooking/Quilting Groups: Are you looking for a place to crop? Then this is the place for you! Bring your tables and chairs and rearrange the furniture to scrapbook or quilt with your friends until your heart's content! You can even stay in your PJ's all day! Crop or sew all day long and then just leave your stuff out so that when you want to get back to it you won't have to take the time to set it up again! The kitchen will be the perfect place for you to step away from your tables and all enjoy meals together and exchange ideas. If it is nice outside you can even set up tables on the decks. At the end of the day give your hands a break and relax in the outdoor hot tub!
In case you need a break from crafts or if your significant other or friends with who want to get away with you that are not into crafts there are so many things to enjoy and recharge your batteries! Have the guys bring their boats and go fishing and bring back dinner!

Several bar/restaurants in the area for your convenience. Many different attractions for instance there is a winery in town for you to purchase some locally produced wines, food and gifts!

                        OMG this place is amazing! So spacious and clean! We had twenty for a family vacation and the 11 kids thought they had died and gone to heaven! The amenities for kids was unbelievable.....their own bunk room , so tastefully decorated!......the theatre room with popcorn machine....the video arcade room....along with the pool table and foosball table....and to top it off....a large hot tub! Each of the 5 bedrooms were perfect with everything all matching! The yard was huge where we played lots of games and we had fires at the firepit at night We cooked all our meals right there in the large commercial kitchen. We rented the pontoon and found the rope swing which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. It would be hard to top this unbelievable lake place or was it "palace"! Thank you Amy for assisting us with any needs we always you're very easy to work with. We'll definitely rent it again!!!!!!!

                        We were an extended family of 18 that got together for a late Christmas celebration. The home was spotless upon our arrival, and it was clear that intense thought had gone into the design of the place. So many little things like in-floor heat, big windows, and ports wired to play music throughout the house made the cabin very comfortable. The beds were very nice and comfortable, the arcade games in the basement were a lot of fun, the hot tub was a great place of relaxation at night, the theater was well used and very fun to have, the kitchen is well appointed, with everything a person could need (and so is the bar downstairs). The owner, Amy, went out of her way to get the fireplace working when it wasn't venting properly, and we were so glad she did. That fireplace is massive, gorgeous and cozy, and we appreciated having it for most of our stay. Amy was very friendly and easy to work with. This cabin is beautiful, well designed, purpose built, spacious, inclusive of some tremendous amenities, and perfect for large-group gatherings. We will be back!

                        Owner response: You were a great group to work with! I look forward to your summer stay! Thank you!

                        We all were in awe at the first sight of this massive 10,000 sq.ft. "CABIN?" and its surroundings. We had 33 adults with a few children and babies and never felt for a minute that it was crowded. The bunk house was perfect for the little ones and their parents. The rest of us either shared space in the loft area or had private bedrooms. The entertainment area was on the lower level and included: A full bar area including video games, a Foosball Table, a full size pool table, and a commercial beverage cooler; an enormous theater room with a movie theater size screen and plenty of movies for people of all ages (easily seated 15-20 people); and a large hot tub outside. We rented their pontoon boat for the week. This is a must to tour Big Sandy Lake and some of the connecting lakes by water, also for anchoring off a sand bar on the lake for some fun in the water and sun. The fishing was great as well. The kitchen felt like a commercial kitchen. It was huge with double ovens, 5-burner stove with griddle, double fridge. Another beverage cooler was in the garage. It will seat 20-25 people. Over all we had an excellent stay and a lot of good times. We would give this place a Five Star rating and are anxiously awaiting next years vacation there. The Stanley Crew and Bob & Helen

                        This property was even more incredible than the photos. We had all of the amenities that we could have wanted. This was really a perfect location for our group with a secluded, north woods feel. The lake access is lacking, but it is a good fishing dock. We will definitely try to return to this gorgeous location.

                        The house was perfect! We had 28 people stay here for our family reunion, most of them traveling great distances to be there. It did not disappoint! There were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. The kids loved the bunk room. It worked out great having all of them sleep there. They also loved the arcade games and the theater room was a big hit! It was also big enough that anyone who needed to get away for some peace and quiet could do that too. The house is absolutely gorgeous! The pictures don't do it justice. We were a little let down that we couldn't spend any time in the water near the cabin due to the excessive rainfall that occurred in the area just before our stay. But the state park just minutes up the road was a nice alternative. Amy was very quick to respond to any questions I had before, during and after our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice vacation rental.

                        Owner response: It is great to hear the wonderful time you had even though there was flooding in the area and the dock was not useable except via canoe! Thank you - I hope you and your family can make it back soon!

The house was immaculate. There was little desire to go anywhere else due to all the games, the river, the hikes etc. This was our favorite reunion house. The add on the internet does not do it justice. Absolutley stunning!! Our family will definitely be back and I would highly recommend this house to anyone with a big family or crowd. WORTH THE MONEY!! Thanks Amy for making our reunion memorable. The Bublitz Family

                        Many thanks Dion and Amy! Our family reunion at your beautiful log home was perfect in every way. We had 27 people who enjoyed every second of their visit. The arcade games provided entertainment for the kids, some adults were watching the Stanley Cup playoffs in the theater room and everyone else enjoyed reading, bonfires and just simply relaxing. I enjoyed watching the look on everyones face as they arrived, they were all definitely surprised. I can't tell you how many times I heard "This place is Awesome"! McGregor was easily accessible for any items needed. Boating up and down the river was so peaceful and of course the lake was a hit with everyone. The home was very clean, the beds were so comfortable and the large kitchen and dining area were perfect for all meals. It was one of the few times we could all fit in one area! When Sunday arrived and it was time to leave, everyone wished their visit was a little longer. We have a lifetime of memories to cherish forever and we can't thank you enough for all you do to accomodate your guests. I agree with my family, this place is Awesome!

                        Words can not even began to describe this unbelievable cabin, every thing about it is over the top. Every single one of our guests were in total awe of the place. I will start with the kitchen, it of course is the most fabulous kitchen I have ever got to have the oppurtunity to cook in. We hosted a 50th Anniversary party and had a lot of food to prepare for approx. 60 guests, no worries, the kitchen is so fully stocked with anything you could possibly need. Our dinner party the first night was with immediate family, so we had 20 people for dinner, there were plenty of dishes and plenty of room at the table for all of us. It was a perfect night!!!! On Saturday we got up and were excited to get to spend time in the ktichen....yes the kitchen. We made an unbelievable brunch for all of our 60 guests without any worries. Plenty of room to prepare, cook, keep warm and serve. It was fabulous!!!! Throughout the day guests were coming and going. I must say that each and everyone of them could not believe how magnifcent this cabin is. The details in each and every room is wonderful. The huge living room was perfect for our guests to sit and visit as was the enormous deck that wraps around the whole cabin. We had a dance party on Saturday night, we played some old time music and loved watching my mother and father-in-law dance. It was a great time had by everyone. The sleeping arrangements are so easy too. Each room is beautiful so any room you get your a winner. The easiest decision was to put all the kids in the huge end room that has alot of beds, this way they all got to hangout with each other, they loved it!!!! The beds I must add are super comfortable too. This was by far by favorite place I have ever stayed!! I think that hosting the the party here made it that much more spectacular!! If you have a reunion, work or a family function in the future I would highly reccommend this beautiful cabin. Another important fact is that we had kids rangeing in ages from 8 to 17 and we did not hear from any of them that they were bored. The cabin has an amazing downstairs area that is equipped with so many things, pool table, foosball, darts and many arcade games not to mention the incredible theatre room, my kids love this room, it has 100's of movies to choose from too. Thank you to Dion and Amy for making the 50th party possible. We abosolutely love everything about your cabin!!!!!!

                        Owner response: Thanks Dianne! So glad the 50th Anniversary Party was a huge success!

                        My family has had the opportunity to use this fantastic get away for the past two years and we couldn't have found a more perfect location. This cabin has all the amenities of any vacation destination but all the privacy of home. Right on the river provides an opportunity for great fishing and easy access to Big Sandy Lake opens up a world of opportunity for water sports of all kinds! It is definitely a long weekend the entire family looks forward to each year.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, pet owners, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Looking forward to having you and your family year after year. Thank you for treating this home as your own!
