  • End of summer get away

    "My husband and I stayed in the Timberdoole cabin. We brought our 17 foot boat. The driveway is pretty steep-we pulled in with the boat on the trailer but we used the neighbors driveway (that connects) to take the boat back up. The public launch is close so that was nice. Fishing was not as good as expected. We did have evenings/mornings of rain the weather cooled pretty quickly that week - so that may have switched the fish off. The cabin was clean and comfortable with modern amenities (gas range, microwave, gas fireplace, Dish TV with limited channels). The bed is a double. The floor plan is very open which is nice. The deck is large and gets afternoon sun, so it's a nice place to soak up some rays. The water in the cabin is MN north hard (rusty) water - so as suggested bring water to drink. The waterfront is soft sloping with sandy bottom. The sandwich cafe in Marcell was nice little break. They're open for breakfast and lunch with a decent selection and have free wi-fi. The grocery store in Big Fork is big enough for all your needs food and a few essential needs. The Plum Tree Antique store in Marcell is quaint and worth the visit."

  • Everything as described, a quiet getaway!

    "What you see in the pictures is what you'll find when you arrive, everything is just as described. Brian is a great host, concerned to make sure everything is as expected - and Hank (the dog) couldn't be any happier to see new friends. The lake is wonderfully peaceful, clear and beautiful - the most boats we ever saw on the lake when we were out other than our own was a grand total of 3. 80% of the shore-land looks like the BWCA or Canada, very remote & wild. The lake is small, but that means less time spent looking for new spots to fish and less gas to burn. We saw bald eagles every day, the loons were there to serenade us, we saw beavers and deer as well. While we didn't set any records with our fishing, we always could catch something (bass and northern pike mostly) and the crappie bite was very dependable every evening. The locals that we met that had places on the lake were very friendly and helpful. Little kids would be able to catch panfish off the dock (little ones) all day long without any problem. There's no cell phone service, no TV, and that's all part of what makes this great. It's a short drive into Marcel for essentials, or an easy drive to Grand Rapids to visit a bigger town with the big box stores. The cabin is small, but it doesn't claim to be otherwise, and we found everything clean and orderly, and well stocked with the essentials. If you are looking for a low tech, relaxing vacation - then you'll certainly enjoy your stay. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for what Brian so accurately describes. If you want something fancy, look elsewhere - but if you are looking for an old fashioned retreat you will enjoy your stay."

  • Ella's Inn is a winner!

    "Ella's Inn is a wonderful eclectic immaculate kept Inn! All rooms are spacious with fresh clean linens on the comfy beds and plenty of towels etc. for a house full! Fully stocked kitchen, was a plus! (Incase you want to cook some or all of meals there) It is only a block and 1/2 from town and makes it easy to walk to and from. Never having to use your car. You can sit and enjoy the flowers on the front stoop, or a shady garden on the side. At night if you aren't pooped from site seeing you can sit by a roaring fire in the back yard. The owners Terry and Lori make you feel right at home and don't care that you and your family are loud when playing games at night! I would stay at Ella's again. I had family that stayed in town and they wished they had reserved a room at Ella's. Thank you Lori and Terry for opening up your home to our family. We had a great time!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "Trails End is a wonderful cabin tucked away in a beautiful wooded area on a peaceful lake. Our host, John couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. Hiking, canoeing, and scenic drives filled our days while sipping wine and reading a good book made for a wonderful evening.The Boathouse Friday Fish Fry was delicious. The perfect getaway :) !"
