Why rent a condo or a hotel room when you can rent a free standing cabin in a fun resort for less, and not have to spend money on restaurants or even worse….wait in their long lines? Most of the vacationers that stay at our cabin say they plan on returning. That speaks for itself.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Our family has been traveling to Okoboji every summer for many years. Each year it gets harder to leave. So, we decided to buy a place of our own, so we knew we'd always have a comfortable place to return to with plenty of room for all our family. It's been the best decision we've made.

Why Spirit Lake, IA, USA:
We chose Bridges Bay because it's a great place to spend a vacation year round Whatever the weather, there's always something to do. From relaxing by the outdoor pool, to sitting in the hot tub...from fishing in the pond to snowmobiling in the winter, from boating on the Lake to shopping & dining at the great restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The kids LOVE the endless activities that Bridges Bay has to offer. The adults love the convenience, safety, and relaxed feeling the Lake offers. From kayaking on the pond right our our door, to swimming in one of the several outdoor pools, all of which are available for you to use as our guest. If it rains...no worries, kids and adults can enjoy the water park with it's indoor hot tub, lazy river and slides. We aim to provide the perfect value. We want guests to walk into one of our cabin and be happy they chose it. We also want them to be thankful to have everything they need while they are away from home. We want everyone in their party to sleep comfortably and we want them to have an awesome time! But most importantly, we strive to help guests value the experience enough to come see us again. WHY PAY $200 PLUS FOR A HOTEL ROOM? We have a cabin that sleeps at least 12 with a full kitchen. You will save money on having to eat out every night while having plenty of room for everyone. A lot of people share the cabin with other families. Normally there are kayaks to use on the pond located just outside our door, as well as balls and gloves.
