                                                              Thank you so much for spending your vacation at Big Siss Retreat. We are very happy you enjoyed yourselves and hope you will be back again soon!

                                                              Very Nice and Spacious

                                                              Lorraine W.

                                                              Our family loved it.

                                                              The home is very spacious and nice.

                                                              Loved the screened in porch looking over the lake.

                                                              We enjoyed a few s'mores over the bonfire.

                                                              The weather didn't cooperate the best for fishing.

                                                              The kids would like to rent it again for next year if it is available.


                                                              Beautiful house with everything you'll need.

                                                              Nancy W.

                                                              The house is lovely. No need to bring anything except personal belongings and food. It was clean and bug free. The screened in porch is a great addition.The 2 floors made it nice because with 4 month old twins we didn't hear them getting up at 5 am with their parents to eat.The bottom wooden deck is extremely slippery when wet. 2 of us fell on it. There really is no beach area and the water quite murky at that end of the lake.The lake is quite a walk from the house which was very difficult for the elderly person in our group. The fireplace was very nice and the Weber grill on the premises was very useful.

                                                              Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed your vacation and liked the cabin. The spacious cabin and porch are always the favorites. Thank you for your insight on the deck, we will power clean it this fall, we have had quite a bit of rain and it must have became slippery. Big Sissabagama is know for having iron in the water giving the lake a "reddish" appearance sometimes. It is very clear at the beginning of the summer but we have reached the end of the summer and it does get hazy with a reddish tone.

                                                              Thank you for your stay and I hope you will return again.

                                                              Awesome fishing, House worked great for mutli-family gathering

                                                              Fred R.

                                                              Each year we try to rent a place for our two kids, their spouses, and an increasing number of grandchildren. We end up changing when the owners sell the house we've been renting. This was our first year here, and this house works great. There is a great area where we can all get together for meals or to watch the grand babies. It's got an open kitchen. There are two bedrooms down stairs where the grand children can nap. The screened in porch is great. They phone reception is almost non-existent for ATT & Verizon at the cabin which is good or bad depending on your point of view. Better service in the middle of the lake or the road to Stone Lake. There is DSL wifi but the quality of the service is sketchy. The phone line had quite a bit of static on it, so hopefully a call to Century Link would get better wifi, but that really didn't bother us. We rented a pontoon boat and had great fishing on Big Sis. Lots of Sunfish, some Bass Large mouth and small mouth, couple of lines that were snapped by Muskie. Even if this house is off the rental list next year (I hope not), I know we'll be finding a place on Big Sis or I'll have some disappointed kids. As is indicated in other reviews there is not a beach. If you want a beach for the kids to play in, your best option is the city beach in Hayward. Sand and playgrounds to keep them occupied. Not too far way. We did see bear, turkey and deer driving from the blacktop to the cabin. Great stay, looking forward to next year. Great time at the Red Schoolhouse wines in Stone Lake. Good music on Friday night, good sandwiches and an area outside that was kid friendly. They even gave us some bubbles for us to use for the kids to chase. (Grand childen all under three)

                                                              Hi Fred,

                                                              Thank you so much for the taking the time to review our property. We value your opinion. We plan on keeping the property on the rental market. The wild life in the area is very entertaining. The seclusion of the property is also well liked. As far as the beach goes, it is not a swimming beach. The sand bar on the lake is wonderful and I encourage guests to go there with small children. I was just at the property repairing the wifi that was down due to storms. The speed has never been great but it was working pretty good. The phone line will be my next fix. We have had several storms in the area this year and maybe the line needs repair. Thank you for your review and please keep this property in mind for next season.

                                                              Very nice rustic home with view of lake although a little far away.

                                                              Kathy and Jim L.

                                                              Very lovely lake home that met our family's needs nicely with lots of space to spread out. The screened porch was awesome because the bugs were bad at times!

                                                              The fishing was good and our son caught a 40" muskie and son in law a 37" northern as well as some nice bass and walleye- they were thrilled!

                                                              The paddle boat took on water around the peddles and the planks down to the dock were precarious at times but all in all a good adventure. We saw eagles, bear, deer, otters, turtles, loons and snakes - 😊�

                                                              Definitely a place we'd come back to!

                                                              Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our rental property.

                                                              Unfortunately the rainy spring has made our boardwalk/dock a bit wet. We have made plans to repair and upgrade it this fall once it cools down. I hope you come back again! The fishing on this lake is amazing!

                                                              very quiet and beautiful view

                                                              Everyone in our group was very impressed with everything, from the beautiful fully equipped, the very comfortable sleeping arrangements,the awesome view from the screened in deck,to the great fishing and wildlife in the area.A big thumbs up to the Parkos. Hope to see you next year.
