"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!"

"Our last few vacations had consisted of schedules and a lot of hustle and bustle. We were looking for a week of relaxation and getting to know each other again. This was perfect. We chose to wake up when ever we felt like it. No schedules to keep. One morning we got up at 5:00 to get an early start on the fishing. It was worth it. We took the pontoon out at least twice a day. Everything in the house was what we expected. We felt at home right away. If you needed groceries or did not feel like cooking one day there are small stores close by or bigger towns that have everything you need. One evening we were coming back from Park Rapids. We were 10 miles out of town and saw a black bear run across the road. We have been to Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming and California and have not yet seen a bear in the wild. We saw plenty of dear, a couple of owls and of course the loons. With the loons it reminded me of the movie On Golden Pond and my son caught a large mouth bass that wasn't quite as big as Walter. My daughter tried to out do him with all the blue gill, crappie and the one bass she caught that was just a little bit smaller than his. We used the charcoal grill multiple times. We had a couple of afternoons where there was rain so we played cards. We used the Skip Bo set and other games that are in the house to pass the time. The house is 15 minutes away from Lake Itasca. We live on the Mississippi River in Iowa so it was neat to go see the headwaters and walk across it. We made sure every evening we took a casual boat ride on the lake just to enjoy the serenity. It was a great way to end each fun filled day. If my family and I ever decide to go back to Minnesota for this type of vacation we will come right back to here."

"Had a great time with 25 friends at the Bear Point House. The house was beautiful and right on the lake as described. There was enough places for people to sleep (airbeds/couches) and enough room for our activities in the house, outside, and on the water. The place is secluded enough from neighbors so we did not have to worry much about noise. Doug was very easy to work with and I got my damaged deposit mailed 3 days after my stay."

"The condo was beautiful, had upgrades and open floor plan that makes a small group very comfortable. FULLY stocked kitchen essentials and more than enough linens. The setting was beautiful, close to the beach. Lovely facilities as well."
