Why Michael C. Wussow chose Cook

I choose to build the Blue Heron Lodge because I wanted to have an environment that was completely surrounded by nature. A place that was quiet, I could go an explore, and was beautiful. I choose to combine this fantastic natural setting with a home that had all the modern amenities that anyone would need. It is a place that allows me to “work from home” one minute and the next minute be on vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mike -



We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Heron Lodge this past weekend. The weather was PERFECT (what a treat!) We got the kayaks out and just enjoyed hanging out on the deck after dark. A campfire would have made the weekend even better, but we understand there's a fire ban (saw the planes patrolling too).



Thanks for sharing your beautiful property with us.

Perfect for summer family reunion ages 1 to 83. Something for everyone.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin and amenities were perfect for the diverse family members. The little ones enjoyed the open space of the deck and screened porch. The entertainment area helped keep the noise down after bedtime for the little ones. The kitchen was great for preparing large family styled meals. There was space to put all of our food, drinks, clothes and other necessary items away and out of sight. It was a home away from home.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin with 5 families and it was perfect for us! Basement is a great spot to hang out in the evening or a rainy day. Hot tub was an awesome location to look over the lake and relax after a tough day on the water. The bay was absolutely amazing! We were the only boats on it pretty much all week and it was big enough to do watersports with almost glassy water! The only complaint is the large rocks at the end of the docks that made it difficult to get boats in and out of. One of the boats ended up breaking the prop after hitting one -- wish we would have been warned to watch out for those! Overall I would give it an A+. PS....it is fully furnished with spicing, every pot and pan and cooking utensil you can imaging and tons of extra pillows and blankets!

Perfect winter cabin

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect. Extremely spacious, comfortable beds, beautiful view, even a hot tub. What more could you ask for. The kitchen was fully stocked with seriously everything. The beds were so comfortable, I felt right at home truly. The game room basement was perfect for a long weekend with friends. The hot tub was on point during a little snow storm. We ended up getting a little snowed in but there was a plow guy who plowed the road for us. Very important to have a four wheel drive vehicle in the winter. Seriously. I loved this cabin and I can't wait to come back.

Family winter escape

  • 4 of 5

Our large group stayed over New Years weekend. The house and lake views are gorgeous with snow covered trees surrounding the house and lake. Lots of room for all of us. The entertainment room was very popular and enjoyed by all with pool tournaments and ping pong tournaments. Beautiful setting for snowmobiling. We did have an issue with the hot tub but had very quick response from the owner with someone sent over to fix the problem. As stated in the rental agreement, 4wheel drive is recommended to get to the cabin in winter! We did not read the rental agreement close enough to catch this detail and had to pull a couple cars up the snow covered hills that lead to the cabin! Owner very receptive to taking care of any issues brought to his attention. Be sure to contact him promptly. Would love to go back in the summer and enjoy the lake!

Great place for large groups

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Blue Heron Lodge. Lots of things to do with kids and adults. The sport court was great, and the game room offered lots of options for everyone. We were a bit disappointed in the maintenance around the outside of the lodge. Many areas were overgrown (e.g. firepit, beach, walkways). But it didn't detract much from our time at the lodge. Very remote, but that was kind of nice.

Thanks!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

I missed this place from the day we were packing to leave. I would definitely choose this place again, it had everything you need, with a spectacular view of the lake and night sky right off the deck (we even got to see the Northern Lights!) We had 6 families, and 2 single people. It was just enough room for all of us. There were many board games and fun activities for the kids to play also. I love the island stove in the kitchen for us to cook on. There is a big screen room for our family to have our dinner in and also a nice screen tv for me to watch lifetime channels on one chilly night. :)
