"Walhall Retreat was perfect for our family of four. Sometimes when you go on vacation, I find that it takes a day or two to truly let your hair down and relax. Not here! We were able to find much-need relaxation as soon as we arrived. The cabin is well cared for and well-loved. It oozes history, family, love and years of laughter and memories. We live a few states away and weren't sure which of Minnesota's lakes to pick and from there, which house. Well..we happened upon a real gem.
The cabin is cozy so if you are looking for a sprawling place, this may not suite your needs. It was just right for us and had that "throw back" feel that we gravitate toward in a cabin. They have thought of everything - lots of hooks for towels and clothes; a clean/refurbished bathroom; reading nooks with good lighting; shelves filled with books in case you forgot yours; fishing nets; a "Viking Trail" scavenger hunt for kids; and much much more. Our kids loved the loft sleeping area and we loved the separate breezeway off the kitchen for cards after the kids went to bed. If you need/want TV time during your visit, they have you covered. We never turned it on. Between morning walks, games with the kids, fishing all day, trips to Ben's Bait Shop, Larry's Foods and the ice cream shop in town, who had time/interest?!
We recommend that anyone who books here spends a bit of time at the six-lane bowling alley in town and also hits the road to Zorba's on the Lake about 15 minutes way. We do not own a boat and rented "Blue Betty" the fishing vessel for our stay. Again, it was just perfect for our needs. Kurt made sure it was there upon arrival and magically knew when we needed gas.
Can't say enough about our stay here."

"Our family spent a four-day weekend at this beautiful lake home. The owners greeted us at check-in and gave us a tour of their home and property. There were 14 of us that stayed a couple of the nights and we had more room than we needed. The young adults in the group enjoyed the volleyball net, fishing, the Bon fire and even a little swimming. The home came well equipped with dishes, appliances and refrigerator space to feed the large group. My 21 year-old son commented, "This is the best place we've rented yet.". We would definitely consider coming back."

"What a wonderful lake home! It was just as lovely as described. We met there for a close family reunion with ages varying from mid-twenties to late 60's, and the property was enjoyed very much by all. Most of us were familiar with the somewhat remote area, and enjoyed the scenic, rustic, peaceful beauty the property and area provided. Use of the kayaks was a big plus for the younger family members. We definitely would recommend this home."
