"We enjoyed our stay at Lion Downe, the property is unique and comfortable, the views are amazing and we enjoyed watching the eagles soar overhead. We had nice weather, so that was a plus as there is much to enjoy in the surrounding areas. A very nice time!"

"We were running a bit late on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend due to the traffic coming out of the Twin Cities. So we contacted Jim and he was very gracious about our check in time. We weren't sure what the chalet would be like, as it was kind of a last second rental since so many places were rented for the weekend already. When we got there, Jim was so nice and accommodating, and the chalet was awesome! It was very well kept up, very modern, and plenty of room for the two adults and four kids we had in our group. At first we were kind of down that the lake wasn't out the front door, which of course we knew already when we booked it, but it didn't matter. The lake itself was just a short walk through a nice trail, and the kids enjoyed taking their fishing gear, heading down the trail, and fishing off the dock. We also rented a fishing boat from the resort next to the dock on the lake, and caught LOTS of sunnies and bass, which was quite an accomplishment for the 8, 11, 12 and 13 year olds with us. There was also a troupe of ducklings that came out of the woods and tried to follow the kids all over. And when the weather didn't cooperate, Jim had offered us a list of like 60 newly released movies that he had. We barbecued, had bonfires, and even ran into Spooner for dinner one night. It was a great location, and I can tell you if we are looking for a place just a couple of hours from the twin cities again, Jim's chalet will be top on the list. Thanks!"

"We really enjoyed 10 days of north woods fall season in a comfortable, well equipped cabin complete with beautiful lake. We had a fire every evening and the full moon made the lake even more beautiful. Incredible north woods/lake country adventure.
Listing description and pictures are accurate. The owner was very helpful with information/directions and makes himself available via cell phone for any questions or problems."

"H2O in master bdrm still way to hot. Control knob does nothing to cool it down. Other then that we like the place lots. Want to reserve the first week in June 2015 again. Also would it be possible that you let go less mosquitos next year? Man they were vicious this year. Just having fun here."
