About Dan

My wife and I grew-up in the outdoors - we love to boat, fish, hunt, camp, and sit by the campfire telling stories. Some of our fondest memories as kids growing-up was packing the car to go to Uncle Buzz' cabin on the lake for a week of fun. This experience, and the memories they created, was something my wife and I wanted to pass onto our children. We started with the cabin 'in the middle' but over the years, the owners to our 'right' and to our 'left' wanted to sell their properties. We now have more cabins than we will ever use personally and would like to share them with other families who share our values. Our little 'retreat' now has 6+ acres of privacy and over 575' of level, sandy lakeshore. It is truly our little slice of heaven.....

Dan purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Dan chose Cohasset

Lake Pokegama is one of the premier lakes in Minnesota and offers multiple amenities. We are within(5) miles of downtown Grand Rapids, at the end of a quiet dead-end street, and have level lakeshore. The cabin is simple, clean, and has a million dollar view!

What makes this cabin unique

You will be challenged to experience all of the lakeshore and waterway in one week. Most of the lake traffic occurs on the weekend's, offering a quiet retreat during the week. When it's windy, there is always a protected bay to enjoy. At the end of the week, it will be tough to go home.

Great Stay! Plenty of Space

This was our third year staying in this cabin. Dan and Patty are great to work with and the cabin had enough space for our large family.

Incredible Property!!! Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing!!!! The building has a terrific layout, it is really like having 2 cabins for the price of one. We stayed in this building with another family and were pleasantly surprised to find we each had our own private space. What a great value!!!

You would be hard pressed to find better lake shore....level, hard sand, amazing views, and crystal clear water. I would highly recommend this place. We had a blast!!

Awesome cabin for a family!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy cabin by the lake with a GREAT person to rent from, this is the one! Whenever we stayed at this cabin, we were up in Grand Rapids doing a job that last 6 weeks. Dan had already closed the cabin down for the winter, but reopened to allow us a nice place to stay at an affordable price. The coffee pot was missing and whenever we ran to town and came back, he had one sitting on the counter. After the first nights stay we noticed the microwave was missing as well. I sent Dan a text and had a microwave a couple days later when he made it back into town. He worked with us on our check out date as our job was day to day at the end, and was more than happy to do anything we ever needed him to at the cabin. The cabin is set up with you walking into the kitchen with the dining room to your left that has big sliding glass doors the give an awesome view of the lake and sunrise! Your living room, bathroom, and main bedroom with queen bed are also on this floor. The bathroom doesn't have a bath tub, but the shower is large enough for anyone. The second bedroom is up the stairs that are beside the dining room. There are four beds upstairs and it would be the perfect set up for kids or some friends to be able to chat at night after a fun day of fishing or sports on the lake! Dan and his properties come highly recommended. He is great to rent from and work with on getting everything the way you want it! A+++++ and highly recommended. As a plus there is also a resident bald eagle! You are about a 10 minute drive to make it into Grand Rapids

Perfect location on Pokegama, Minnesota's most beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Three siblings and their families spent 4th of July in this spacious environment. Loved that this property is on the west side of the lake...morning sun was warming yet we were very comfortable in the protected shade during the hot afternoons. Beach has beautiful sand bottom in crystal clear water; a haven for kids ages 1-16 years old! The dock accommodated our 26" boat, with easy lake access not fair from the property. Decided to watch the fireworks from the property (vs. taking the boat out) cause the view was hard to beat!! The cabin was equipped with everything we needed inside and out! Looking forward to staying here again!

AMAZING - Relaxing and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year staying at this property. We had a large group and there was plenty of space for all and the two kitchens allowed for enough room to prepare all of our meals and enjoy them together. The rooms are nicely updated and the area of the lake is very peaceful. The shoreline was ideal for the kids to play and swim and the lake was clean and clear. Dan was amazing to work with and we will be coming back next year for sure!

Another Great Family Vacation on Pokegama Lake

  • 4 of 5

Has been a few years since we have been back to this property. Nice upgrades in the kitchen & family area with beautiful large dining table and furniture in both family rooms. Beds have also been replaced and are amazingly comfortable. We love staying for a week here. So much to do on this great lake and everything you could need nearby in Grand Rapids. So perfect for my sisters and our families to build memories of summer vacations. Will come back every year!
