"We brought our 2 small children and our dog up to Stony Point. We also invited both sets of parents, so we had a total of 6 adults and 2 children. Stony Point was plenty big to accommodate a group this size. The house was far nicer than what I was used to for the North Woods. The kitchen appears to have been updated recently, and the main level is open and cozy, which was nice for meals and having everyone together. But, for when you need your space or some quiet time, both levels have large, comfy living areas. It was also very nice to have a full bathroom on each level. Additionally, there is a washer/dryer available to use, which is convenient. Although you can see neighbors on both sides, the property still felt plenty private and secluded to me.
The only thing preventing me from giving the 5 star "excellent" rating is the waterfront area. We had expected the area on the south side of the pier to be sandy, but it was a little rocky. I think its only an issue if you plan to have little kids walking in the water. If you do, I would highly recommend water shoes. Also, because the property is on the west side of the lake and is surrounded by tall trees, it makes it difficult to get any sun. I had to float off the pier a little bit to catch some rays, but that was fine. Additionally, the pictures show the pier to be an "L" shape with a bench, but when we were there, it was a straight aluminum pier with no bench.
Overall, I would recommend Stony Point for families or adults just looking to get away. The house is nice, and the lake is beautiful. Our dog had a blast swimming in the lake and my kids and I caught bass, perch, and panfish off the pier. It was a great family vacation -"

"This is our second stay at the Shoreview Lake House and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. The home is comfortable and well supplied. The views are amazing. The wildlife is abundant. We enjoyed watching the Eagle making his daily rounds. We spotted many Loons, a Heron, and muskrats. The fish were plentiful enough to keep the guys out in the pontoon all day. This will be our first choice if we decide to travel to this area again."

"The minute we walked in this home, we couldn't believe how meticulously clean it was. It has a very well thought out floor plan and is very spacious with lots of different areas for the family to hang out. The lake shore was great, sandy and shallow. You can't go wrong when renting this home!"

"Friends and I rented this for our annual gathering. I read and read again the description and was hoping it was as advertised. It was even better! The cabin was well stocked with things we brought along not expecting to find. The hot water never seemed to run out even after multiple people showering. Everyone had space to sleep. It was roomy, and even with neighbors close, it was quiet. When our checkout time arrived, no one wanted to leave yet.
Honestly, the only two things that we could say weren't perfect were the smell coming from the outside garbage can that apparently hadn't been emptied, and that the fire pit was pretty full of ash which was wet and made it hard to get a fire going the first night.
Really easy to give this a five star rating and we've all agreed we'd look at renting it again if we come back to the area. Thanks much for a great vacation!!"
