  • 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!"

  • Just as indicated

    "The lakefront home was just as the owner had indicated in pictures. There were plenty of spaces for our extended family. We all enjoyed the open format of the kitchen/dining area. This is not recommended for those averse to stairs. My daughter and I had the loft area and often found ourselves running from the dock through the house and to our room."

  • Fantastic Location. Spacious and Comfortable

    "We did a couples weekend in Decorah, Iowa to visit Toppling Goliath Brewing and explore what Decorah has to offer. We arrived at 11:00 PM on a Friday night and we could not believe how large the loft was. Bedrooms and bathrooms are separate from the living area which was great when I woke up early on Saturday morning, walked to the grocery store (a 2 min walk) and prepared breakfast for those still sleeping. Everything is within walking distance, even the brewery was only a mile away. Everyone in our group commented how well they slept both nights. Being able to pull the car into the garage at night is fantastic, especially in colder weather. So glad we found this place to stay. We highly recommend the loft!"

  • 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!"
