Why Josh Grangroth chose Central

Big Swan Lake is one of the most peaceful lakes in the area. It is only about half developed so this leaves you most of the lake when boating, fishing, and other water sports activities.

We stayed here (8 adults, 2 kids) and had plenty of room. The pics on the site need to be revised and I say that in a good way. A brand new deck was added right off the dining area and it is HUGE and it is FANTASTIC! Lot's of chairs out there to sit on and the view of the lake is gorgeous! A new dock was added (again, not in the pics) which is very LONG and gives you a great place to park your boat or in our case "pontoon" which we rented from Josh/Chartered Rentals. There are steps leading down to the lake and beach area which we weren't expecting so if you have mobility issues, you may want to think about this. We fished off the dock and caught many fish "using worms". The depth around the dock for swimming was around 4 ft. so the little kids loved it. The interior of the house left us feeling a little uncomfortable. We aren't used to staying at places where the owner has not moved out. Physically he is not there but we were hard-pressed to find closet space in the bedrooms (one bedroom being the exception) and dressers that weren't completely full of his clothing. The kitchen was much the same way. Past renters leave ALL their unused condiments in the pantry drawers & refrigerator. We prefer to come into a place where we can just put our own food items/condiments away. It is just our opinion that EVERYTHING needs to be removed for the next renters coming in. The same was true in the bathrooms. Left over shampoos and conditioners were found cluttering the insides of the showers. I'm sure the showers were cleaned BUT there was literally shampoos and conditioners lining the floor inside the downstairs shower! Not something we wanted to see. Josh introduced our kids to "Fly Boarding" which was probably one of the most fun days on the water EVER!! All n' All.......a good rental property. Just wish we would have had more storage space in the kitchen and bedrooms.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

What's not to like about this Great Lake home! Sauna, hot tub overlooking the lake, beautiful views from inside the living room or the hand crafted outdoor kitchen overlooking the walleye jumping and the eagles soaring overhead! Quiet neighborhood yet close enough to head into the city to enjoy the many great restaurants and culture. Snores by the fire pit after a long day swimming and fishing was exactly what I needed! The ladies even had a great time shopping at the local butcher shop and annual flee market. I would stay again for sure!

Great time was had at Eagles Nest!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family enjoyed our week on Big Swan. This place is set up to have fun, when we were not fishing, swimming, boating, we were in the hot tub looking over the lake, or around the fire pit on the lower patio.

In the evenings we jumped into the sauna (we had all seven of us in at one time)!

Having a full kitchen out side meant that all most all of our meals with cooked outside so that my wife and I could enjoy the family at the same time, I think we used the indoor kitchen twice.

Great location, just an hour from DT Minneapolis, so I did sneak away two afternoons to get some work done:)
