Great location to fish the river or lake

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the rental. Located in a quiet bay just off the river with everything you need inside. Not fancy, but we felt right at home. I asked about power to run on board charger and Curt strung power out to the end of the dock for us before we arrived. Nice floating dock to keep your boat fenders lined up to the dock boards & cleats. We would definitely stay here again. We didn't explore the area.

Girls Weekend Away!

  • 4 of 5

This was just what four fishing gals ordered! Location was perfect, cabin was clean and had everything you may need to make all of your own meals. This is not a 5 star resort but it is perfect for what we need. Dining room for game night, center island area for fish tales and cocktails, and living room seating IF you want TV (we hardly used it) Curt was a great host and made everything very easy during arrival and departure. We will be back! Thanks for everything!

Awesome Location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place to stay for Lake Of The Woods fishing trips. Close to all the fishing resorts. Nice private & quiet waterfront location. Awesome huge deck out back to enjoy the water view also. Kitchen is equipped with all supplies (dishes, cookware, silverware, utensils, small appliances, paper towels, etc). Rental was neat and clean upon check in. Best of all, owner Curt was very nice and courteous. Very easy going guy. Would stay here again for future fishing trips.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this place for anyone coming up to fish in the summer or winter.

I am going to try to rent it in the summer of 2015.

One suggestion would be to have the deck shoveled off so we could use the hot tub and grill.

Owner's Response: Shhhh... Don't say 'hot tub' too loud. I don't want anyone to think its one of the amenities there. That thing hasn't worked for over 15 years. Now its just a really cool deck ornament. I humbly apologize for not having the deck shoveled. It usually is and I don't know what happened then. No excuses. I dropped the ball. Shame on me.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We were up for some ice fishing. We had a great time, although the last day was cold. Kids fished the river that day and my friend and I stoked up the fire, drank beer and watched football all day. Good fishing on the lake and on the river right in front of the cabin.

Cabin was as described. Although it notes that smoking is allowed, we didn't see or smell anything that would indicate that anyone had. Great little cabin for the four of us with room for more.

Curt was very helpful answering questions, even regarding fishing reports and ice conditions. Cabin was clean and well maintained. We'll definitely stay again if returning to the area.

Thanks again,
