"We stayed at this cabin last summer also, and booked a second summer. We have been here in June both times. Growing up in MN, it's that ideal up north cabin for making memories with family. It has a nice longer driveway with the cabin tucked right into the woods of big pine and beautiful birch trees. The driveway is nice for smaller kids to go up and down on their bikes, and scooters and still have enough room for parking. There is a nice front and back yard for for dogs and kids to run around too. When you walk into the cabin there is a great porch for hanging out on summer nights, with a radio and a ceiling fan. Appliances work great. There is a lot of books, games and puzzles. My boys are 12 and twin boys that are 9 and they always end up playing out on the dock, jumping in the water and swimming. The water was about 77 degrees, warm enough for them! There is some steps to get down to the dock, but it's great exercise for my boys going up and down to the cabin. The dock is great to hang out and fish and watch the sun go down. You can catch some great size northern and walleye right off the dock! The bay is perfect for pulling kids on the boat tubing. If you have a boat there is a public landing very close, and then just drive your boat over to the cabin. The basement is another area we end up hanging out, really great for a rainy day to watch a movie, play games, etc. the basement is a walkout, which is really great for running in and out when you need something. There is air conditioning that works great for hot days, but the nights cool to 50-60 degrees and the lake winds are a great way to cool the cabin at night too.
If you wait to buy food, there is great little grocery store in walker! Walker is a fun town to walk around and check out the candy shops, ice cream and there is pizza place that has some great pizza! There is a pharmacy to. There is also a great park with a playground in walker, it also has a basketball court that my boys like.
The beds and linens are comfy and clean, the main bedroom upstairs has a big patio door that leads out to the deck, you look right into the woods when you lay in bed. You can have a cup of coffee on the deck, or have a family dinner. You can see the lake from the cabin through the trees.
We love that there is a washer and dryer, makes it so much easier with kids and not having to pack so much, because you can just wash and dry at the cabin.
Just a fun all around great family place to stay to get away!"
