  • Excellent, would repeat.

    "Our family of 8 adults and 13 children enjoyed this spacious and beautiful cabin and found nothing to complain about. We were here for three nights and celebrated thanksgiving together. It was a perfect way for our family to gather with so much room, plus everything we needed in the kitchen, etc. the complaints by previous posters were non-issues. We would definitely consider coming here again."

    "We stayed here again this year and I would echo the same statements that I made in my last review. I would only add that this place becomes even better the second time around, and the landlord even friendlier. It's remarkable that both are even possible as renting here is a breeze. Two thumbs up again and we will definitely be back."

  • 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 Family Gathering Home

    "We strive to get all of our grown children and their families together at least a couple of times a year. With 8 adults and 6 grandchildren, we found the ideal central location and this beautiful lake house that more than met all of our needs. The home, with the large deck, the dock over Spirit Lake and bike trail across the street, allowed the family to spread out, enjoy fishing, kyacking, biking, roasting smores over the fire pit, and more. The house is beautifully decorated and supplied with WiFi, electronics, games, kitchen equipment all the way down to plenty of coffee, coffee filters and more. The owners were so gracious and helpful with their emails and phone conversations. It was the perfect spot for our family gathering."
