Lovely home with all the space and comforts needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second winter time visit. We love Shook's Nook! The ice fishing was great. We watched the tip-ups from the comfort of the house and even landed a 30" northern. Lots of space for the entire family to be together and play games or watch tv. Comfy places to sneak away and read as well. We look forward to a summer visit soon!

My all time favorite mom/daughter weekend getaway rental property in 26 years

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a long weekend at this beautiful chalet with my 3 sisters and mom. We've been doing this annual event for 26 years. We all agreed that this property was the most accommodating for our group in all the years we've been renting various properties. It was meticulously clean and the owner was very responsive to our million questions. My sisters are hard to please.... trust me, he did a great job!! The three bedrooms and three bathrooms were great for a bunch of women. The beds were all very comfortable, screen porch was awesome for our meals, the lake was gorgeous, coffee on the deck was breathtaking and it was just more than we expected. We were apprehensive about the property after reading one of the reviews and glad we didn't overlook this gem. Not sure who/what happened but our experience was just top notch. Ooooh, crafts had adequate space with the large table and porch table. It was just lovely. My sister caught some gorgeous fish as well off the dock. Topped off with a beautiful walleye! We WILL be back!!

Not worth the hassle

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in the cabin in August and at first thought it was beautiful. After we arrived the owner then asked us to use as little water as possible, only use the air conditioner at night, and only use the dryer if it was an emergency; none of that was ever mentioned up front. When you pay that much money for a cabin, you expect that you will be able to use the amenities listed in the add. Then, in the middle of a rainy night, we woke to gallons of water pouring in to the dining room. It was leaking in through the walls above the patio doors. We stayed up for hours cleaning it up and trying to prevent water damage. We took VERY good care of the house; cleaned it all week and before we left. I have tried to contact the owner many times by phone, email, and snail mail, but he will not reply and he has never returned our deposit as he said he would. We have never even received any reasoning as to why it has not been returned. We had very poor communication up front and after we stayed. I was very disappointed with the whole experience.

Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this lake home in July for our vacation. We have 3 kids (ages 12, 9, 7) and a golden retriever. We painstakingly reviewed VRBO listings to find the best options and prices. While we love VRBO and have used it several times, it is a bit daunting to not really know what your place is going to look lit is really like until you arrive!

The cabin and location was perfect - we had great weather and much of the vacation was spent in the lake swimming or pulling tubes behind the boat. The kids loved fishing off the dock.

They have a great bonfire pit for nightly fires. We definitely did not want to leave by the end of the week!

We especially loved the privacy of the cabin - it is wooded on all sides. I loved being able to go for my morning run around the 2 1/2 mile loop - we saw deer, wild turkeys and eagle every day!

Rachel and I loved having a Wi-Fi connection and it was convenient to be able to bring Jake (our dog); he loved it!

The listing accurately represented what we expected for our rental. Modern, updated and clean - which we appreciated!

The convenience of the lake with a nearby small town with plenty of activities (i.e. mini-golf, grocery stores and restaurants) is absolutely necessary for young families. We also loved that the property had a trampoline, basketball and a large yard. VERY important for active children!

The lake home is ideal for families. There is plenty to do, yet ample room to just relax. The deck or screen porch is perfect for afternoons and evenings. We liked that it had separate spaces and was large enough to 'escape' if necessary. The upstairs loft worked out great for the kids.

We have already contacted the owner to possibly rent again next year. We might even rent it this winter to go snowmobiling, it is a great location.

The owner did a nice job of providing what we needed in advance to be prepared such as directions, helpful hints, etc. He sent a nice welcome letter and was available for questions and general information.

Girl's Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lake home in October for a 4 day / 3 night girls 'getaway' weekend. We are a group of 7-9 women who have an annual weekend for the girls.

This is our 3rd year renting this lake home and it is perfect! The owner continues to make improvements. The cabin is modern and updated (stainless appliances, granite counters, flatscreen TV's). It has plenty of space and having THREE bathrooms is very nice! The cabin itself is private allowing our group to spend time on the deck, screen porch, evening bonfire and boche ball in the yard without any worry of bothering (or being bothered) by anyone.

We had mixed weather - 2 sunny days and 1 rainy - but there is always something to do. We had bonfires, played outdoor games, grilled on the deck and watched movies on the flatscreen TV and enjoyed the company of each other.

We love the location - its only a couple miles from Siren and there are other towns nearby. It feels like the perfect mix of 'cabin time' while also exploring the local venues of nearby towns.

As a group of 'ladies' we can be a bit critical, however the owner alway exceeds our expectations - it always clean and inviting for our stay. The atmosphere, venue and location is better than described.

Anyone interested in a girls weekend - this is the perfect place, we have already signed up for next year!

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this cabin in 2010, as we are looking for our 2011 summer vacation plans and hoping to get here again!

The property is private, self-contained and modern. The lake, dock, trampoline, basketball, large yard and of course....cable TV gave our 3 kids (and a friend) plenty of activities to enjoy. The adults enjoyed the screen porch, pontoon rides, golfing, cocktail hour on the deck and the grill! The weather was 'almost' perfect, we had several bonfires and s'mores and the cabin is so modern and new, we enjoyed the indoors as much as the outside.

The town of Siren is charming with antiques, restaurants and of course minature golfing for the kids.

Definitely recommended for anybody with a family looking for a weeks relaxation and getaway. We hope to make this experience a tradition.
