"We enjoyed a long weekend at this beautiful home with our group of 4 adults and 3 kids under 4. The description indicates that this is a family friendly home, but we were still amazed at how true that statement is. The wrap around deck is kid-proofed and made for an enjoyable and stress free time for the parents. Our kids enjoyed playing with all the toys (inside and out) and my son loved the "tunnel bed" up in the loft.
The beach is perfect for a sunny afternoon and the beach toys kept our little ones busy. The play set got good use as well. If your kiddos want to catch sunnies off the dock- they're in for a treat! There are tons of little fish just waiting to be your child's first catch. Two of the kiddos caught their very first fish on this trip!
The setting is absolutely beautiful and this lake home feels like a resort without all the noise of neighboring vacationers.
I recommend the short drive to Dorset for some shopping and ice cream. The general store in Nevis is great for all the items you forgot to pack. We didn't explore much beyond that- the home was too good to leave!
We will be back!!"

"It was the perfect getaway to catch up with a long time friend, watch sunsets and relax. It is close to Itasca State Park for day trips, where we enjoyed the hiking trails, the boat tour and eating lunch at Douglas Lodge. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed the porch immensely. Due to a family emergency, we had to cut our vacation short. Vicki was most understanding of our circumstances. She was a delight with whom to work."

"We had a blast at this property which housed our extended family attending a wedding in Detroit Lakes. Plenty of room and sleeping space for everyone! Very well equipped kitchen (complete with a huge selection of spices, Tupperware, paper plates and garbage bags) Tons of dishes, pots & pans, ice maker and a large dining table. Deck furniture, camp fire pit, grill and tiki torches are fun for outdoor entertaining. Very relaxing and secluded, yet just a short driving distance to golf courses, dining, paved walking/bike paths and more. Thanks Russ & Cathy for everything!"

"Our family has enjoyed this lake home for over 5 years! It is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The home is so spacious, which comes in handy with our large group of 22. The kitchen is fully furnished and great to work in. There is a large porch and a fire pit by the lake to relax. The yard is large and fenced in with plenty of room for kids to run. The view of the lake is amazing! We have always rented the pontoon which works great for kids to fish from. The fishing is always good as well... sunfish, northern, bass and even a walleye this year! Gary has always been so generous and good to our family and we truly thank him for sharing his beautiful home with our family for a week every year, Thank you Gary!"
