"This is a great little cabin ideal for a couple to get away. The entire cabin is equipped with updated appliances and comfortable furniture. It is right on the water with its own dock. We didn't use the boat lift. The kayak is a single person so consider bringing another if two people want to go. Having Zorbaz across the street was excellent for us. If you don't feel like cooking just run across the street. The only thing is what most people already mentikned, the traffic noise. It wasn't a big deal to us really but big trucks and motorcycles taking off in the intersection were loud sometimes but nothing that is too loud inside, just on the deck. Not a deal breaker for us at all. Janice was absolutely great to work with and happily responds to questions very quickly. Overall, do it. We had a great experience."

"I love coming home to this cabin. We have stayed at Pinecone Cottage for 2 years now and have our 3rd booked already. When Sandy met us at the door to let us in, all I could say was "now I am home." My husband and I had a wonderful time fishing on the lake. It was so quiet and peaceful. Thank you,Tim and Sandy for a terrific place to relax and unwind."

"This was our second year in a row staying at DeeSide. It is a great place for families to stay because it has so much room to spread out. We are a small family (2 adults/2 kids & dog) so we didn't need all the bedrooms but the guest house with the pool table, foosball table and dart board is perfect for those rainy afternoons. The beach is an easy walk and it is great having the owner's boat available to use. The other great part is the fire pit. We love sitting out there roasting marshmallows and relaxing after a day on the water. There is also a washer/dryer in the basement which makes it so much nicer that you don't have to pack a ton of extra clothes because you can do a quick load of laundry if you need to. The location is spectacular because it is right on the WhiteFish chain so you can access all the other lakes through the channels. It is not far from the grocery store and all the places you need to get a bite to eat if you don't feel like cooking yourself. We loved staying there with the kids and highly recommend it for families with kids (>5yrs old so they can walk to the beach). Great stay every year and the owner is always very responsive with any needs you have while you stay."

"It's hard to find a cabin 6' from the water in MN ... regulations now require more like 30'. But this one is right by the water. Everything clean and in good shape and comfortable. Nice fire pit right by the water, grill, place to clean fish, easy to get to. Deep water right off the dock allows for great fishing without a boat, though there is a boat lift if you have a boat. We caught sunnies, bluegill, bass and Northern Pike right off the dock. We saw Eagles every day, hawks, Northern Flicker, Blue Jay and more birds. Two restaurants on the lake are of good quality. No resorts on the lake which makes for quieter, more peaceful traffic both on roads and lake. Close to state parks, Brainerd, hiking, nature and anything you need, but not so close to Brainerd that it's over-populated ... you are definitely away from any large towns. Owners are fantastic to work with! It looks like we may finally be starting a yearly tradition. I said to my sons ... "don't you want to go different places" and they are pretty set on coming back here ... which is just fine with me."
