                            We stayed at the lakehouse while we celebrated a wedding at Miniwakan State Park. The garage was a lifesaver! We had 6 adults and one young child and plenty of room for more. It was like our home away from home. We wouldn't have stayed at the lake to rest up after the wedding if we had stayed in a motel. The house was well stocked. The deck and dock were great for sitting outside. The beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and out of the heavy lakes traffic. Yet not too far from everything. The bike/walking trail across the street is a plus. We would stay here again.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.

                            Owner response: Glad that it worked out for everybody. We were happy to have you stay during your busy wedding preparation and make this your home away from home. Please come again and relax when you can, wedding or no wedding!!

                            This was such a beautiful home. Nicely decorated. Well maintained and it well accomodated our 12 family members that stayed in the home. It was so quiet and relaxing. We would stay again. It had all the comforts of home. Including outdoor games, bikes, indoor games for young children, etc. The owners were very accommadating and helpful. We ate at Rabab's for lunch. It was very good food and lunch prices were reasonable. We rented a pontoon boat and traveled the lake--what a relaxing adventure. We also did a scavenger hunt just to get to know the area and we found the people were very friendly and helpful as well.

                            My family and my sister's family and my mom (total of 11 of us) stayed this week. We had ages 10 through 67. We had a wonderful time. The house was equipped with everything you could imagine - both inside and out - kitchen stuff, bedroom stuff, hammock, chairs, bikes, etc. The weather was wonderful so we spent a few days sunning on the dock and floating with inter tubes off the dock. Unfortunately we don't have a boat and they don't rent boats on this lake so we went to Okoboji Lake to boat one day. We also went to a drive-inn theatre about 15 minutes away one day. We shopped a couple days as well. I would definitely stay here again when we return to this area.

                            Ten of my old college friends and I spent Memorial weekend at the lakehouse this year. The house had more than enough room for all of us and the beds were very comfortable. The view off the dock is beautiful and the water is incredibly clear! The lakehouse is in a quiet area and was perfect for our group who wanted to reconnect and enjoy each other's company. Ella, the owner, was incredibly easy to work with. She was flexible with me on dates, even though it was a busy holiday weekend, and wanted to make sure that everything was perfect for us. Most of us had never been to Okoboji before and she gave us lovely suggestions on what to see and do. The price we paid for the beautiful house we stayed in was better than any of the other properties that I had checked out before the trip. We will definitely consider the lakehouse for future reunions!

                            This was our 2nd year at Spirit Lake and our first year at this lovely lakehouse. We loved the spacious back yard and the deck. We spent most of our time there enjoying the lake and watching our Grandchildren play. The little ones loved the sandbox and riding the jumping horse! Our teenage grandchildren settled into the room with the Baby Grand piano and loved having their own hang out. I loved the kitchen area with the large refridgerator! This is the first year we had more than enough room in the refridgerator. Our family really loved the quietness of the lake which enabled us to enjoy pontooning and jet skiing. The lakehouse is supplied with just about everything you could want or need. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning next year!

                            The "girls" stayed at the lake home and had a amazing time. The home was perfect for the 10 of us who each had our own bed. We had lovely evenings by the fire, some of us had great walks while others had time to play computer games while others sat on the dock and enjoyed the lake. The best place in the home is on the lounge chair that looks out on the lake. It is a great place to read or just look at the lake. We love the cabin and hope to make it there again. The home is beautiful and our time the best. We hope to make it back again. Thank you so much for letting us use such a wonderful place.

                            This was our third year at the lake house. We love the location on a quieter lake where we canoed, watched the beautiful sunsets and fished off the dock. We enjoy playing games outside in the large yard and eating on the deck. We also like the walk/bike path right across the street. There is a playground within walking distance and the public beach (Orleans) is less than a 5 minute drive. The house is very comfortable for everything - cooking, sleeping, playing games and just hanging out. The kitchen is well stocked and we appreciate the two full bathrooms as well as the washer and dryer. We have really enjoyed staying at this house and working with the owner.

                            This is the third year that my family has met here for a nice summer vacation. My sister and her family live in Decorah, IA so it is a perfect spot to meet in the middle! We have so much fun there - we play yard games, my nieces love the sandbox, there is a perfect spot to get in and out of the canoe we bring and there is plenty of space for all 12 of us!! It is just a great spot with such a beautiful view! Very clean and welcoming! We all like it so much that we are hoping to add on an extra day for next summer!
