  • Things of note

    "We spent a week at this well appointed condo in Okoboji. For the most part we were satisfied and happy. Just a few things to note for the traveler. Okoboji goes "off season" after Labor Day. This meant that the resort's "fabulous" lakefront restaurant and "year round" entertainment that are sold as amenities to be enjoyed with the condo have some caveats. No restaurant and the water park was only open Fri. 4-10, Sat. 9-10 and Sun. 9-5. Its too bad because the water park was great! Also note that we were contacted by the condo owner early in our stay with a complaint from a neighbor about what sounded like children running in the building. It was pretty obvious we were the only family with children in the building. She was nice about it and everything but this made us feel a bit on edge our entire visit trying to keep our young boys quiet (which has an exercise in futility). This is why it's important, in my estimation, that "family friendly" descriptions be accurate. So if you have small children I don't know if I would necessarily recommend the condos, you might want to look into a free-standing cabin on the resort property. The location was close to the main strip and thus really convenient. With regard to the unit . . . Preference comments: fire place is hot air not gas or wood (ie, no real flame). If you're a connoisseur of beds/bedding (and I am) you'll find average quality here. Shower in Master is lacking in caddies and space/ledges to hold products, shave legs and such. +'s: Lots of space/light, direct door from master to deck, nice view, beautiful cabinets/wood, great puzzle drawer, sirius radio on flat screen, real candles. Maintenance comments: Dishwasher kept running until we had to manually shut off, ice dispenser in the fridge readily clogs and spills ice everywhere every time its used. We utilized a chair from the deck to replace the a broken one from the dining set that was placed in the laundry room. These are all first world problems for sure, but when you're paying first world prices, maintenance issues aren't something you should have to work around. Happy traveling!"

  • Great Getaway

    "Our family spent a nice weekend at this cabin. There was plenty of room for all the kids (age 23 to 12) and us two adults. The kitchen is stocked with more utensils, pots and pans, crock pot, skillet, dishes, etc... than my own kitchen! The communication from the owner was immensely helpful and they answered all questions immediately before we got there. The kids enjoyed the water park, ice fishing and the huge kitchen table made it perfect for family games. I highly recommend this specific cabin and the owners. Wonderful people to work with!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We just left there yesterday and we can't quit talking about how nice it was. Where else can you stay in a secluded cabin with central air? We didn't get a lot of fish but we did get a couple catfish and blue gill. We went to the nearby park and swam for 4 hrs, and hiked the parks trails. It was very nice they had a propane grill big enough for a lot of steaks and chicken. This cabin even had coffee bean grinder I took mine and didn't use it. our beds were comfy, and ALL the games they had was fun! I was surprised there was a TV, which came in handy when it rained. Everyone enjoyed themselves and was very pleased with the price of this place, we will be back! Thank You Gina!"

  • "GOD'S COUNTRY"-FAMILY GATHERING JUNE 2014

    "OMG-you must see to believe!! If you think the pictures are beautiful, then you must take the time & book your reservation so you can enjoy this MUST see, breath taking experience. You will never see this amount of "God's creation" all in one place. From acres & I mean acres of green grass, trees (mercy, oh mercy, the sizes of these you must see) animals & much more that you will never find any where else but here. I challenge you to try. I have been to South Dakota, Florida, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Georgia, Ohio,Tennessee, Nebraska,Texas & Trinidad. All nice places but nothing close to the beauty & relaxation you will find here at the cabins. My brother Craig chose a cabin to celebrate his 30th wedding anniversary with his wife Lisa & daughter's Sara 21st birthday. Our family has grown, so from the oldest being my parents of 80 & 81 to the youngest of 6 weeks & too many to count of relatives in between. He wanted it to be special & therefore looked for a place where everyone of all ages would enjoy & remember their special occasions. Jim, Laura & son Michael were awesome in welcoming every single one of us. The place is "spic and span clean." All you need to do is bring your own food & drink, everything else you can imagine is there. You literally would not have to leave once you arrive here. Isn't that what makes get away's hectic, stressful & tiresome, just when you want to sit back & relax someone decides it's time to start running. Not here, in fact if you do leave you are missing time away from this awesome place to relax & enjoy. Thank you to my brother Craig for organizing an awesome day for our entire family to enjoy together. Laura, Jim & Michael thank you also for being so genuine in welcoming all of us!! I can not wait until Fall to hopefully organize a get together with some of my closer friends. How beautiful the trees will be changing colors. Then there is our cold Iowa winters, what an awesome time to relax around the fire place after ice skating. Good child hood memories coming back already & winter isn't even here yet! Looking forward to seeing you soon, Lisa-life long resident of Dubuque Iowa"
