Guestbook comments from the owner

What an idyllic location! The walking trail around the lake behind the house is stunning. The neighbourhood is perfect, including an amazing factory outlet shopping experience that we only found on the last day!! The house is huge, extremely clean, well maintained and has everything you could possibly need. We had five adults staying there and were joined by three children for the last night and never felt crowded. The two levels with separate living areas provided plenty of space and yet we had lots of room to dine and sit together as well. We absolutely loved it and have no hesitation to recommend it to anyone considering staying in the area. It was 10-15 minutes to Hudson one way and St Paul / Minneapolis the other.

Great home for a large group, excellent access to walking/biking trail, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect fit for our family of 8! The kitchen/dining space was perfect, lots of room to enjoy a great meal and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare it! The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was a plus for our large family. The location was awesome with direct access to the biking/walking trail and having access to the community pool/tennis court was a bonus. Drive time was minimal for lots of activities in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area. We would definitely recommend and stay here again if we are in the area. William was quick to respond to any of our questions or needs.

Beautiful location, so many beds.

  • 4 of 5

Was with a group of friends for a weekend in February. How amazing to have beds for everyone. Great location near the cities, right on the gorgeous lake, with trail access practically on the property. My one complaint (if you can call it that) was that there weren't any places where we could all gather, unless we really squished, or some sat on the floor. I'm not sure this would be an issue with a slightly smaller group (we were 12).

Owner's Response: I'm happy you enjoyed your stay at Colby Lake. I'm surprised a huge kitchen/family room that seats 12 and a family/game room that seats 10 people wasn't big enough?

  • 4 of 5

We loved the walking trail being out the backdoor! We had some issues but after a call to the owner he resolved the problem quickly.

Enjoyable stay.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for our daughter's wedding in nearby St. Paul. It was a great choice. The property was as advertised and handled the ten of us easily, with lots of room to spread out, though we spent most of our time at the house hanging out in the kitchen/dining area, which made for great conversation. The house was very clean. The gas stove didn't work when we arrived, but the owner responded quickly (the gas just hadn't been turned back on after a recent repair) and it was fixed before the day was out. The walk around the lake was one of the best parts -- the walkway is literally right out the back door, and the lake and walk are gorgeous -- we're only sorry we didn't have time for more walks. There are a number of specific rules, which made us a bit nervous at first, but if you can live with them, this is a great choice.
