The cabin was very small but very clean.

  • 4 of 5

From check in to check out the people were very friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much. Our only complaint really is that the check out time is at 9:30 in the morning! Little kids that have played in the lake the whole day before are not even awake by then - much less have time to eat breakfast. I understand that it takes a lot to turn a resort but I feel giving people until 1030 or 1100 to wake up, pack and load is reasonable. Move check in to 4:00 if you have to and let people enjoy their last morning on the lake with a cup of coffee.

Owner's Response: Greetings Jane...we're so happy to hear that you had a good time staying at Samara Point with your family. Sorry to hear about your disappointment with our check-out time. Typically in the spring and fall we're able to accommodate our guests with a late check-out after 9:30 am and an early check-in before 3 pm, but during the summer we usually cannot because everyone is checking out and checking in on the same day. We need that much time to clean the screened-in lakeside porches, wash all of the windows, change the linens, do a thorough cleaning job in each cabin and have the grounds mowed and trimmed so we're all ready for the new guests by 3 pm. We hope you understand and hope to see your family again at the special quiets of Samara Point. Warmest regards...the Bombenger's

My family and I live in Andover, MN, and Samara Point is about a two hour drive for us. This was our first visit, and we had an amazing time!! We have two children, ages 8 and 12, and this was our first cabin experience together as a family. The cabins were so cute, just what we were looking for, extremely clean, and had such special personal touches to them, including a basket of homemade chocolate chip cookies! You are steps away from Gull Lake, have the use of a fishing boat, kayaks, outdoor games, and a five minute drive to cute, little town of Nisswa. We will definitely be coming back next summer, this time for a longer stay! I just can't say enough good things about Samara Point!

Professional rental. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Went up for Labor day weekend with my wife, 9 month old daughter and my parents. We stayed in the channel cabin. Cabin is much more spacious than the photos show and it was very clean. Very well equipped with dishes, silverware and pots and pans. We had everything to cook all meals, bake, fry and grill. The cabins are well spaced and the resort was very peaceful for a holiday weekend. There is good fishing right off the docks and a well taken care of swimming beach. We plan to go back!

Cabin 2 Stay

  • 5 of 5

Can't wait to go back! This was our first stay at Samara Point and we could not have been happier! Grounds are impecabbly kept and cabin was spotless upon arrival! Location on Gull is a new favorite - close to Nisswa, close to restaurants via car or boat and it is in a beautiful bay, really couldn't ask for more!

What a wonderful week we had!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Channel Home 17 years ago for our honeymoon, and this year we returned with our 11- and 14-year-old boys, staying in Cabin 2.

Laura and Sue are so warmly welcoming, the cabin and grounds are spotless and meticulously maintained. There are many detailed touches, like the personalized welcome sign and fresh cookies, and plenty of games available, both inside and out.

Matt is happy to share fishing tips and suggest places to try for the big ones, or just chat. They welcome families of all ages, yet we found it to still be fairly quiet and peaceful. :)

It's very close to town for groceries, touristy shopping and eating out, and also close to the Paul Bunyan Trail if that's your thing. Could not recommend Samara Point more strongly, and it certainly won't be 17 years before we're back again.
