  • Perfect Family Getaway!

    "This was our first time to the East Lake Retreat and we had a wonderful experience. We found the rental online and had never taken this approach for housing for a vacation in the past. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found everything to be in perfect order. We were even more shocked that any and all necessities and amenities were on hand (from rafts for the lake, to a fantastic fire pit to even silverware and cooking utensils). The inside of the home was gorgeous and the view of the lake was equally as wonderful. The fishing was good and there were many nearby activities to keep us busy. Barb was great to work with as we planned the details of our trip and made sure everything was perfectly in line for our arrival. Our family made many great memories and we highly recommend this rental for anyone else looking for a relaxing getaway."

  • Great peaceful cabin!

    "We wanted a place where we could relax and just forget about all our worries and this was definitely the place to be! The river and cabin were beautiful! We used this as our base and went on many adventures but it was always great coming back at the end of the day and sitting on the patio. The cabin was very well built and gave us some ideas for when we build. It was rustic but with the accommodations that are nice to have (running water, lights, and a stove). What a perfect vacation we had! Thanks again!"

  • Great views, excellent location, comfortable

    "Lovely views of the pond and the big lake from the living, dining and kitchen area. Clean comfortable furniture, not pictured is outdoor table chairs on the deck, we spent much time there. We are seniors, had no problem rowing across the pond, walking to the beach. It would be difficult for those who are not active or disabled. The beach is very private. We saw a bald eagle sitting on driftwood. Just 2 of us, the king bed was great, liked the adjoining half bath. Suggestions for guests, bring dish towels and dish clothes and a box fan or 2. The ceiling fans are nice but we needed more. I hope the owers read this and leave a box fan in a closet. They have plenty of bath towels. Kitchen is well supplied with pots, pans, dinnerware, silverware, utensils. If need spices, flour, sugar, bring along, there is salt, pepper. Don't forget coffee and toilet paper! I liked finding the refrig and bathrooms were free of remnants from other guests. There is a very close by neighbor to the West, no one was home. A realtor showed that house while we were there. This neighboring house has a birds eye view of the deck and west side of house. Total privacy is something crave when in Grand Marais, the house was a great fit for us, we will return and take our chances."

  • Best vacation ever!

    "Our vacation could not have been better! From the very start, Sue and Ben made us feel like family.....and their beautiful home was perfectly appointed! Everything we could have needed was in the kitchen (beginning with the yummy chocolate cupcakes we found upon our arrival) and the books on the coffee table provided lots of information on all the freighters we watched from the deck. We plan to return.....and stay twice as long next year!! These people are some of the best, and the relaxation we enjoyed in the UP was awesome!!"
