We had such a wonderful time on Lake Washington! The property was fantastic and had every amenity you could think of and then some! Jill was a delight, so welcoming and friendly! We’ve already booked for next year and can’t wait to come back!
We loved the place and unlimited use of pontoon was great! Jill was there for anything we needed!! Booking for next year!
You can’t do any better!
I can’t say enough awesome things about Jill, Jim and their outstanding property that they are so willing to share with others. The cabin has absolutely everything you could ever need, and that’s before the unlimited boat privileges. There are lots of lake homes on VRBO, but none like this. If we weren’t in the process of moving to a lake, we would have already booked a week for next year, and we just left this morning.
3 Night Getaway
We had want of nothing! Everything we wanted and needed was provided. We enjoyed the pontoon and the boat for tubing. We had beautiful weather! The camper provided a great sleeping area for our family with little kids so that those in the house could sleep in! Jill went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed.
Great property for families with children of all ages! Jill is a great owner. She thought of everything to make our stay convenient, welcoming, safe, and super fun! Having the watercraft included is a huge bonus!
This property is conveniently close to the Twin Cities yet far enough away to see every star in the sky!
In the summer, relax in the sun near the lake front, explore the lake - excellent fishing and unlimited use of the pontoon & a fishing boat, gas included!
In the winter, this area is perfect for cross country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. If you are looking for the perfect spot for the holidays, this is it! We will even provide the tree!
Come see the world's largest ball of twine and visit the twine ball museum, located just one mile from the property.

I was born and raised in the area and am excited to share all that the Lake Washington area has to offer with you! I am the former owner of one of the most popular local restaurants and am now sharing my enthusiasm and hospitality with each person that rents my property. My family and I live just a hop, skip and a jump away on the family farm. Give me a jingle and I will share with you anything you want to know before renting.

What makes this House unique
This lake home is tucked in the woods away from traffic on a beautiful lake. There is a large lawn which is perfect for picnics, yard games and room for kids to run and play. The main feature is the lake. The views are awesome and the beach, pontoon, kayaks and 3 paddle boats (including a seated paddle board that seats 4) give you everything you need to enjoy your stay with us. The fire pit is an evening favorite and firewood is provided. We want you to have a wonderful time so please let us know if you have any questions about the property. If you are staying with us please let us know if you need anything while you are here. Sincerely, Jill
