"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."

"We had another great week! We love Jan's lake home, the beach and the location. We are three families (6 adults and 10 kids) and there was plenty of space for all of us. Our favorite memories were spent on the large and well maintained beach. Jan is great to work with and is quick to respond to our questions. This a great place to get away and enjoy the north woods."

"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."

"We had an amazing time. The cabin was extremely clean and large enough for many people. It is close to Crosslake and yet private enough when quite time is needed. We were able to fish from the dock and boat access was easy - wish there were less weeds to swim but fishing made up for it. The owner was extremely prompt in his responses when we had questions, which makes everything smoother. Was a great time, will stay again!"
