Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we (a group of 10 women) have stayed at Red Sand Retreat. We have planned a weekend getaway every year for 30 years to ski and just catch up. This home meets our needs completely and Kari, the owner, is very responsive. We highly recommend this property for your getaway. We will go back next year.

Amazing home - great for a family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year renting this home on Red Sand Lake. We had a group of 10 (all of my in-law's), and we had a fabulous time. This home has amazing character and is very well maintained. It has a large kitchen/dining room which was great for meals, a large dining room table which was great for playing cards, a beautiful large wood-burning fireplace, plenty of room for everyone to sleep and the outdoor hot tub is definitely an added benefit.

I would highly recommend this property!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start because everything about this place is wonderful - starting with Kari, the owner of the property, she was great to work with! The pictures absolutely do not do the property justice! We rented this for a girls weekend and it exceeded all of our expectations. From the moment we walked in, we were all grinning ear to ear running from room to room and taking pictures of this place that we were lucky enough to stay at. The house is perfect for a large group, with several different sleeping spaces and bedrooms all decorated beautifully. The kitchen had every appliance/utensil you could possibly need to cook meals and the amount of activities to do on the property were endless. From taking the kayaks around the lake, playing tennis with the girls to enjoying a book in the hammock or a nap in the sun on the beach - it was perfect. We will definitely be back!

Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

There was more than enough room for our party of 10 adults and 2 infants. The pictures online do not do the property justice. The finishes and decorating are beautiful, the floor plan is fun and open, and the grounds are immaculate. There are a ton of dining and entertainment options close by, but the property feels very secluded and private. We thoroughly enjoyed the tennis court and pontoon add-on. Kari was great to work with and responded quickly when I had a question. Some of the girls were already wanting to plan their next family vacation at the property. Thank you for such a fun and memorable weekend!

Fabulous VRBO home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a "girls weekend". There were 9 of us and everyone, without exception LOVED this home. We have been doing our annual weekend for more that 20 years and we found this place to be the best we've ever had. Kari, the home owner made us feel welcome with a nice note and a bottle of wine!! We will most definitely be going back.
