  • A perfect retreat (once again!)

    "This was our third (3-night) stay at this fabulous lake home retreat. Once again, everything was sheer perfection for our 3-generation family-of-6. We arrived to the spotless lake home, with a delicious apple pie awaiting us. Each person got their own room (all beds are comfortable), so plenty of personal space, as well as ample shared spaces. There are three levels, with a full bathroom on each, a billiards room--where we compete each night, a screened-in, and an open deck, overlooking the lake. There is an open, airy feel to the home, with lots of natural light streaming in the skylight, and many windows. The stone (gas) fireplace adds a coziness in the mornings and nights. Each day, we spotted (and heard) four loons, and spent time on the water near them, (on a rented kayak, canoe, and pontoon boat). We enjoyed 2 bonfires (s'mores! no mosquitoes!) and experienced (from the front row!) one of northern Minnesota's quickly-passing, dramatic, lightening storms over the lake. My niece delighted in the nearby Wilderness Resort's indoor swimming pool (a short walk; $7/day), and games room. Joel and Shelley are the best hosts you can imagine. So thoughtful and genuine, and they know the area well. They will happily answer any questions you may have about the property, weather, activities in the area, etc."

  • Wonderful Anniversary Weekend

    "My wife and I stayed this past weekend at the Boat House. It was our first anniversary so we wanted something relaxing and secluded. The Boat house was everything advertised and more. The cabin was extremely clean, and truly set up to give visitors a great time. My wife felt at home from the moment we got inside. We spent the weekend cooking food, drinking wine, canoeing, listening to birds, sitting around the fire, and just overall feeling really fortunate to be with each other. It was a great time, and the cabin/owners ma The owners left free smores. They have a canoe, firepit, fireplace, movies, and basically everything you need for a romantic weekend. The best part was that the owners were very friendly to our dog. Our shepherd had a great time jumping in the lake and watching squirrels and birds from through the window. We both said we would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you for being so hospitable and friendly to us."

  • Quiet Solitude!

    "What a beautiful & relaxing get-away! (We travelled from NC, PA and OH). The lake home is close to downtown Crosslake, yet secluded & quiet! Plenty of room for 10 adults and 2 teens. If you are looking for an adventure away from Crosslake, it is possible to drive north of Duluth to tour Gooseberry Falls, Betty's Pies and Split Rock Light House all in one fun day and still make it home before the sun sets. We will not hesitate to rent this house again for our next family reunion! The owner could not have been any more helpful - great and easy to work with - a man of his word."

  • Excellent Fall Weekend

    "My boyfriend and I were looking for a last minute getaway up north and found this gem. The owners were fabulous to work with, and even gave us a deal for our last minute rental! The space was clean and well stocked with towels, soap and firewood for the fire pit. We enjoyed an afternoon at the Kathio State Park and stopped at the casino. It was indeed a great weekend get-away!"
