"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"

"Stayed here with a group of 8. Two kids and six adults and we all had plenty of room to eat, sleep, and relax. The kids played all day and the adults had some nice quiet time at night to build a campfire and catch up with each other. The only complaint is that we didn't have more time! Would definitely like to make this a yearly trip!"

"Thank you Curt for sharing your cabin with us! It is a little slice of paradise there! It was one of the first cool weekends and we were excited to enjoy the weather and get away from the city! The cabin is cozy, super clean and stocked with anything you could need! I love to cook and was so happy that the kitchen has everything you could ever need or want! The sun porch is perfect for watching the sunrise while enjoying a cup of coffee. There is a beautiful view of the lake from all of the main rooms and a great fireplace for those cool nights. We did a little antique shopping, and sampled local beer at the Gull Dam brewery on Saturday. I will
Be back, can't wait to share with my family from South Carolina this quaint way of Minnesota life!"

"This lake home suited our needs perfectly! Very large and spacious home with air conditioning allowed us to feel right at home. Plenty of storage for groceries, seating for meals, open areas to relax, and parking for everyone. Really convenient location, the lake was beautiful, and with the wonderful pontoon, we enjoyed every minute. Loons, ducks, and a bald eagle visited daily. Large veranda out back was a favorite place for games and an Elvis entertainer. Best vacation, ever!"
