  • SIMPLY PERFECT!

    "Our family of four, two adults and two girls (ages 7 and 5) stayed 4 nights at the end of July-2nds of August. This cabin had everything we needed and gave us everything we were looking for during our stay. The cabin itself is older and definately has a "cabin" feel. It is not flashy and is not modern, but it was PERFECT for us. The cabin sits on a nice big lot with woods on both sides, so you cannot see the neighbors and really dont know they exist unless you are on the dock. Has a nice big back yard with a hammock and swing that our kids loved to lay and play on. Outdoor shed has just about anything you need in it; life jackets, grills, fishing nets. There is also a paddle boat and row boat to use. We had hours of fun getting out on the two boats and paddling around the lake. Little water traffic and very quiet (we were there during the week though). Endless catching of bluegills and perch right off the dock. They werent the biggest fish but our kids just LOVED having the chance to catch something. We caught enough big blue gills that we fried them up for dinner one night...yum! Much of our time was spent just relaxing on the dock or in the back yard. The kids loved swimming right off the dock. The water was clean but did have grassy spots and does have a red tint to it. We had NO cell service the whole time but we were in need of some isolation so that worked perfect for us. The owner Jerry even offered for us to use his land-line any time we wanted if we needed it. Definately wished we had a power boat of some kind. We will keep that in mind for future use. It is about 15 minutes from Phillips (definately no longer) which offers some little shops, restaurants, several parks, and some other sight seeing. Its not a huge bustling town, but it suited our needs. I did some research and knew it was perfect for us. Working with Jerry was VERY easy and he was a very nice guy. Their house was just down the road and he repeatedly said during check in to stop over if we needed anything. Again, my kids are 7 and 5 and it was perfect but they did have some of their own toys and play well anywhere. If your kids are older (12-17) I could see them maybe getting a little bored. Again, there is no cell or internet service. But if you want relaxation and R&R then this is the place. Thanks again Jerry!!"

  • World-class getaway w/Northwoods charm

    "I've stayed at many VRBO's and this is positively at the top of my list. First of all, the owner is fantastic. Tom was extremely communicative, accommodating & was very hands-on in making sure our stay was top-notch in every sense. Secondly, the accommodations are second to none. The "chalet" is very well thought out and our group of 11 had ample space to spread out. The place has something for all; foosball & air hockey downstairs for the kids, fireplaces for mom to relax by, great kitchen with every imaginable utensil, tool, top end appliances to make your meals, TV's galore (but who needs TV when you're with family & friends) ample parking for our big group with snowmobiles and finally, a beautiful lake view. The place is very nicely appointed, yet has a very natural feel as if your walking into your own place. I would recommend the cottage to families, multiple families or friends looking for a beautiful place to stay & relax. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms there's room & privacy for all. Finally, the access to the snowmobile trails, local bars & restaurants make for additional fun if you're looking to get out and about. The place has it all. Four 🌟🌟🌟🌟's. Two 👍👍's up!"

  • Perfect place to get away!!!

    "Dave and Barb are the best, clean quiet and rustic place that is Well maintained. There are acres and acres of wood and trails to hike. Awesome setting to say the least. We had a group of 8 men and plenty of beds to go around. Dinner was a easy with a large table and room to spare. We booked it again for next year and for many years to come [this was our 14th] Thank You for the delivery of the meat from your store it was melt in your mouth good!!!!! Take a 5.5lbs of beef tenderloin light smoke for 45 min at 150, then finish on grill at 325 for 20-25 min. That was perfect never better. Thanks for the tip Dave ]"

  • The place to make memories

    "My children and I vacation at this house whenever possible. It is an inviting, warm house on a beautiful lake. Far enough away to truly relax and be with each other. Close enough to Duluth, Hayward and other areas of interest for fun day trips. The kitchen, living areas and amenities are first rate. It’s called a cabin and is nicer than many residences. This is a place to create many happy memories including climbing trees, bonfires, s’mores for breakfast, swimming in the lake, water fights and water balloon tosses, playing games, tie dying and watching movies all day when it rains. My children are world travelers and have been places such as Versaille, Berlin, Mexico, London. The memories they talk about whenever we get together? The critter in the canoe, the fireworks over the lake, kayaking around the shore, catching frogs and pushing mom off the pier. Their favorite place to be? Up North at John and Judy’s cabin relaxing, having fun and making new memories!"
