"I am sad to think that someone new is taking our place at this Cabin/Lake Home...It was an amazing week. Lot's of great memories were made. This Lake Home is incredible, so spacious, open to enjoy all's company, but plenty of get-a-way space if need be. I did not come a cross anything I needed in the kitchen that was not available.
The Foosball and bumper pool were a great fill in and was used a lot, then there is the bean bag toss that was also used.
The fire pit is a nice area, the old chairs by the pit were amazingly comfortable and very unique.
The fishing was OK.... we caught Bass, Northern, and walleye. You can catch plenty of pan fish, but never caught any that we considered large enough to keep. We did discover that trolling the shoreline is the way to go...we did catch some nice Bass at the little island right out from the cabin. Leeches and worms were the choice of the week for the fish.... and of course the white twister tails. We did do some night fishing from the dock, caught some nice bull heads and a dog fish, that was all our Grandson was after and he caught one... was nice to watch his happy dance. We were lucky enough to be night fishing during the meteor shower, it was an amazing show, we probably seen 20 shooting objects in the night sky.
The town of Aitkin will have all you need, its about 15 minutes from the cabin. They have a nice grocery store and anything else you would need.
We did go to Bingo at the Legion on Tuesday night (adults only) I won 66.00, had a few drinks...it was fun.
I want to thank the the owners for opening up their great home to us for the week.... it truly was an amazing place.... The Tipton's Cedar Rapids, Iowa"

"We stayed here with our 5 and 6 year old grandsons, with their parents joining us for a day. Our daughter also came for a few nights. The weather wasn't so great for some of our stay, so it was nice to have a great place to be in to play games, etc. We were so happy with the cabin the moment we walked in. The cabin was super clean, and the lake wonderful; both the large area of shallow water, and the beach. The rip rap didn't come into play, as it was late summer and water level being low. The sunsets were amazing!We really loved this place and envy the owners!"

"Was a perfect spot for my 4 and 6 year old boys and I. Great fishing off the dock for everyone. Caught pan fish as well as a couple northern and bass.
Cabin was clean and amenities sufficient to allow a relaxing time. Quiet area, heard loons every morning and the cabin was nice and cool at night. Could not have asked for anything better. We plan on coming again next year!"

"Loved the cabin and how it was located by a lake. It was very beautiful and breath taking. It's a great place to bring your family and friends. There was a walmart and lots of other stores and attractions near the area from the cabin, about 10-15 mins away so it was convenient. The kitchen basically had everything needed to cook. One thing that was weird was the blankets were not nicely placed on the beds, they were more like on the floor. Overall, besides that it was a nice cabin to stay at. I recommend everyone to stay here. Thanks to Chad and Carolee for letting us stay at their beautiful cabin. It was a wonderful experience."
