"We rented the main house and boat house for 4 days while we were in the area for a family wedding. The house is huge! I looked it up on zillow and it's like 7000 sq ft. Immaculate condition. It was much nicer than we were expecting based on pictures. The master bedroom is amazing. They have two of anything you could possibly need in the kitchen. Yard is open and very clean. It was too cold for us to swim, but beach would be perfect for swimming with a nice sandy beach and shallow water for young children to play in. Owners must be super techs because every room has a nice TV set up. I give this 5 stars without hesitation. Frankly I think it's pricing is under the market value of what they could be charging for a place like this. The only cons were that there is a massive deck that is under construction. It's was still very "clean" looking outside even though deck was clearly being built. Also there was a square hole in the basement that had plywood over it in the basement. I think they might have removed an in ground hot tube or something. Anyway, it was the only thing that made the basement seem unfinished. I perceived it as dangerous to walk on because the boards seemed springy and I was a littled worried about someone falling through. Owners are very straight forward and business like in their interactions with you. Lastly, while they didn't charge us for anything, the owners wanted a credit card on file for unlimited damages rather than taking a traditional deposit. I thought this was obsessive, but the owners were very straight forward and responsive to deal with. They don't leave you to wonder about anything. You will know exactly what your responsibilities are and what theirs are. All in all a wonderful experience and beautiful property."

Perfect large, upscale home for large group or family
"Loved staying in this large, upscale family home and working with Sherry. We had family from the West and East coasts and both young and teenage children. PLENTY of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space. Huge kitchen and eating area with a beautiful deck to watch the sun rise in the morning. Loved eating outside in the evening on the spacious deck. Sherry was a dream to work with. For every question I had her answer would include an offer to assist with booking services. She is truly full service and delightful. Thank you!!!"

"Thank you, Joel and Shelley, for the opportunity to again stay at your beautiful home on the Middle Cullen! Our two young granddaughters, daughter and son-in-law, and son were all thrilled to be there for the week and enjoy the 4th in such a great setting. Our oldest granddaughter loves to fish and caught the "best fish" right off the dock! We were lucky to have a great week of weather and be out on the water every day. Also got to celebrate our son-in-law's birthday while there and the delicious apple pie and ice cream were just perfect! Thanks, again! Marcy and Gary"

"This is a wonderful place to vacation and our family has been coming to Alluring Pines for years. The cabin, and grounds are beautifully taken care of. The cabin is very clean the lake is very clear and the fishing is great. You are close to lots of restaurants, bait shops, a supermarket, and just a short distance from Nisswa, but you feel like you're away from everything. The owners are wonderful people, and ready to assist with anything. Lots to do and see in the area, and we highly recommend this place for a vacation."
