About Rick and Teresa Maurmann
We have been married since 2005. We have three kids and 2 Huskies. We love them all very much! My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. We decided that life is too short to work so much and rarely spend family time together. We found our cabin in October 2007.
Rick and Teresa Maurmann purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Rick and Teresa Maurmann chose Detroit
Mostly for the Lake. But it now goes deeper than that. It is an oasis of calm, grounding and recharging for everyone in the family including the dogs.
What makes this Cabin unique
It's endless. The best times for my wife and I is in the snow. Turn on the gas fireplace. Grab a book and snuggle up. Napping and reading all day with snacks and good conversation. The kids love any adventure outside. Walking around town, going to the lake or exploring the woods. We are just a few minutes to swimming, snow skiing, hiking and the hot springs or hanging out in the hot tub placed in the middle of our private forest.

Read carefully and notice responses to poor reviews.
Please for your own sake, read the description VERY carefully, especially the part about the cleaning tasks you will need to do in order to avoid paying a penalty (losing part or all of security deposit). Ask yourself if you want to do laundry, dishes, make beds, vacuuming, and cleaning bathrooms on your last day before you check out at 11 AM. (Yeah what vacationer really wants to do that?) And you will need to bring all your garbage home with you. That is not mentioned until you receive the full details the day prior to check-in.
Then consider that the neighbors are very close and very loud. Both nights of our stay, they had very loud parties until at least 1:30 AM. It was summertime but we still had to close all the windows to be able to get some sleep. We even had a drunk random stranger knocking at the door in the middle of the night.
The cabin is lovely and cozy. The back deck and trees are lovely and as described. If the things noted above are not an issue for you at this price, then go for it.
I wouldn’t stay here again. Not restful/relaxing. Owners responsive prior to stay, marginally so afterwards.
Hello J A
Sorry to hear your visit was less than ideal. It is summer time in Detroit Lake and it can be noisy. There is a noise ordinance but clearly it sounds like it was not adhered to this particular weekend.
That being said a couple of items to take note: Your confirmation sent to you regarding your stay clearly states that check out is 3:00 pm. This has always been our policy and a phone call to us would have cleared up this matter.
I do apologize though that you received your information rather close to your stay and sincerely regret that this was an imposition for you.
As for the cleaning tasks, we do not charge a cleaning fee, nor do we live in the area and therefor this is the reason we ask that you take your garbage with you.
Had you read the reviews you would see that we ask our guests to leave the cabin as they found it. I am sorry you found this inconvenient and it seems because of our policy this would not be the right place to choose for your get away.
Thank you for the feed back and we are always striving to improve our guests experience. But we cannot control what is happening around the neighborhood but we will work on being more responsive to our guests needs going forward.
Cozy Cabin Getaway
For those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and actually spend some time relaxing this cabin provides. The entire property had great charm with all of the necessary creature comforts to make our time spent here enjoyable.
The kitchen was more than adequate for any of our cooking needs. The property owners were very generous in leaving the home stocked with all of the condiments and herbs/spices you would need to create a lovely meal without having to dine out. The loft/bedroom was cozy and very quiet allowing for some great rest.
The property itself was tucked away in the trees which was great to escape the summer heat. The hot tub was a lovely treat after a long day out and about. The back deck off the main living room is a great space to read and relax too.
We will definitely be looking to stay here again when we travel through Detroit Lake in the future.
Thank you Todd for your lovely comments. We strive to make this sweet cabin getaway a "home" that comforts and offers solace and relaxation from everyday busyness. We look forward to hearing from you again.
The cabin was exactly what I wanted for my fiance and I's anniversary. It was very clean and simple. The movies, games, and hot tub made for a nice, relaxing weekend. The cabin is close to town so it was easy to get supplies. Rick and Teresa were also very responsive and made the check-in/check-out process nice and easy. The only thing that I would recommend would be to put a shade on the bedroom window to make it feel bit more private. All in all we loved this cabin and would definitely stay again.
Thank you Bryce for your review! AND we got a cover on the bedroom window too!
The house is so cute and clean. It was a Mom’s weekend get away and we were welcomed with orange juice and champagne, which was perfect for the hot tub while it snowed! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! It was perfect!
You are so welcome. We hope you come back! You took such good care of our little get away and we really appreciate that. Also, your journal entry and Photos? We love it! You found the glue stick to permanently attach the memory. That is very special.
Bless you all,
Rick and Teresa.
Great little cabin in the woods.
We stayed for 4 days during the Winter. The cabin was cozy and we had a great time just relaxing.
Love this little cabin in the woods
Perfect get away, comfy and cozy. Everything I needed for a relaxing time, no WiFi or internet to clog my time. Just peaceful guiet time. Thank you Rick and Teresa for opening your home away from home for me! Thanks I’ll be back
Located on Detroit Lake this small town buzzes with activity in the spring ramping up to summer fun! Then in autumn falling quiet to winter snows and some rowdy storms that pass through the Cascades.
