  • Birthday Celebration

    "I cannot begin to tell you how awesome our stay at this "farmhouse" was! I'm sure I'll forget to mention something in this review because there was so much *right* about it! We arrived on the afternoon Friday October 24, 2014 to find a very clean, well-cared for and well-appointed home. On my first walk through, I was in awe of the whole place and by the time I left on Monday morning I was convinced if I lived there I would never leave the property! The pool is a lot larger and deeper than the pictures would suggest. We did not have children in our group, so I cannot speak to any of the possible child safety issues, but it appeared the area could be made secure, if necessary. The outdoor hot tub was incredible, with multiple jets and options to make any sore body feel relaxed! There were plenty of toys and towels, not only by the pool, but throughout the whole house! We found a few closets filled with games, toys, towels, blankets, pillows, toilet tissue, paper towels, and totally unexpected things like jackets to "borrow" in case you forgot yours! Almost the whole property is very private and secluded, despite it's ideal location close to stores (including a Cub Foods & liquor store) and various sights. There's a wonderful lake with a walking trail...that's *if* you tire of the well-tended to yard full of beautiful hostas and a killer fire ring stocked with wood and plenty of seats! On Saturday night we had a dinner party for approximately 15 people. I'm a former professional cook and found the kitchen stocked with almost all the equipment (including coffee maker, blender, crock pot, and a microwave), utensils, and seasonings I could possibly need; making the box of things I brought with me unnecessary! To be honest, we spent very little time in the living room or watching the TV because we were enjoying conversations in groups all over the house, in the hot tub, and around the fire! Our privacy was never disturbed by anyone, which was wonderful! We had three DJ's in our group and had a full sound system setup in the pool area, playing everything from oldies to techno to metal. The only time the music was heard outside of the house was when the sliding door leading from the pool to the hot tub was opened! The whole house is pretty sound proof, which is wonderful when you have some people up late, after others have gone to bed! I can't say enough wonderful things about the house and we certainly will be back! Thank you to Carol and her family!"

  • Relaxing ladies night

    "Some girlfriends and I stayed here for a night to relax, get away and to celebrate. This was the absolutely perfect space for that. The beach, the view, the kitchen, the screen porch everything was perfect. I would recommend this spot for anyone!!!"

  • Wonderful waterfront retreat

    "My family and I enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend here. There was loads of room to play, inside and out. We caught sunfish off the dock until we just couldn't fish anymore, and took some trips out on the lake using the paddleboats and kayaks. The house was conveniently ready for children, from a stepstool in the bathroom to outlet covers in every plug. The kids loved sleeping in bunkbeds! There were several fun playgrounds just a short drive away, and the town coffeeshop was superb."

  • Great location!

    "This cozy space was perfect for us (a family of 4). We were wishing for a place close to family in Minneapolis while still being close to green space. The kids loved being so close to the beach and playground. We all enjoyed sunset walks around the park and neighborhood. We always felt very safe. It was quiet and we never felt like we were even in a city. The owner, Mark, was super helpful and very accommodating...the floor was cold, so he brought over a floor runner. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals at "home" including brand new frying pans. We enjoyed eating outside on the patio (there's a nice outdoor table and chair set and a grill). We'll definitely stay here again!"
