Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family spent an awesome week at this cabin. The beach and water are every bit as beautiful as they are in the photos. Our daughters enjoyed the beach as well as splashing around in the sandy shallows. We even caught two teeny fish from off the dock!

The cabin has huge picture windows and depending on which seat you choose, you will have a beautiful view of the big yard and lake, or the birch-laden woods. I spent every morning with my coffee cup enjoying the woods and the many birds, butterflies and chipmunks that visited the property. We also saw loons, deer, and a porcupine during our week in the area.

The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were comfy and plentiful, and the cabin has heaters to cozy it up for the couple of chilly mornings we encountered. There was also a trail we found down the road from the cabin (called Ski Trail Road on Google) that was equally beautiful for a hike or drive through the woods.

Rick and Deena were wonderful hosts, checking in and offering tips when needed. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of games on the screen porch for the rainy day we had while we were there. Overall, this is just a great spot! Highly recommended.

Vacation Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

My family has enjoyed this cabin for four consecutive years and though we drive 600 miles to

spend our week on the shores of Perch Lake, it's considered no hardship by the 14 family

members who look forward to the beauty and tranquility of this cabin. The bunkhouse is

a favorite with our teenagers while the adults and younger kids have plenty of room in

the cabin for relaxation and rest. The beach with fire pit is a highlight at the end of

the day for our marshmallow toasting party ! The owner is easy to work with and

very accommodating. The cabin is always clean and ready when we arrive. We have

nothing but praise for the owners of this beautiful cabin on Perch Lake. It's all that

is advertised and so much more !

About Rick and Deena Ronchak

We have been renting this property for nearly 15 years and have never once had to hold refund back for a customer or claim a deposit. We enjoy allowing people to share in this property and build family memories. Our prayer is that people build relationships and memories with the people they hold most dear to them and restore relationships that may have been damaged. This is a special place that was purchased by my father Gene Ronchak in 1981 and then sold to my wife and I in 1998. Our family, extended family and friends have made many memories here enjoying the unbelievable crystal clear lake, sandy bottom / beach / woods and getting away from the busy lives to enjoy our relationships with each other. We ask that people respectfully appreciate and care for the property and build some memorable moments together.

Why Rick and Deena Ronchak chose Side Lake

This is a family owned property since 1981 serving to build memories for families in the pristine northern Minnesota lake country. Once you see this property you will not be disappointed.

What makes this cabin unique

Incredible crystal clear lake water with pure sand bottom and beach as seen in the picture. You can walk out over 100 feet into the lake and you are still in knee deep water. Private setting with a flat lot is rare which is great for little kids or elderly people that do not want to deal with stairs down to the lake. Enough room in the front and back of property to have your family spread out and enjoy the fresh northern air of one of Minnesota great forest and lake areas.


Nearest Golf
45 Miles
Giants Ridge Golf Course

IronWorld in Chisholm is about 15 minutes away. I highly recommend Bimbo's 1 mile away for great pizza and wings. Go to Side Lake store 2 miles away and step into back 75 years for a scoop of ice cream, gas or minnows for fishing. This property is unique with a southwest facing flat lot with beach and crystal clear water. A slice of heaven.
