Excellent Summer Choice!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a mini college reunion, and had a larger group of 13 adults stay for 3 nights in June. This place is nice and SPACIOUS; we never felt crowded! The master bedroom as room for an air mattress (if needed) and the sun room has 2 single beds plus extra room for an air mattress as well. Hannah really goes out of her way to make sure everything you would need is stocked. The kitchen was full of pots/pans/flatware, etc. There are lawn chairs, floating toys, kayaks, towels, a nice large yard, and excellent sunset views from the fire pit. The 2 refrigerators helped keep all our food and beer cold. Lower South Long Lake was fun to cruise on, and we caught Walleye, Pike, Bass, and Panfish. There were strong storms that came one afternoon, and we were limited to the confines of the cabin. Hannah had plenty of indoor accommodates as well. I will say that the Super Nintendo was a HUGE hit with our group... brought us back to our 90's childhoods. Assuming our group doesn't grow in size, we will definitely be coming back!

This cabin/home was everything we could have wanted. It was clean, roomy and everything was there that you could possibly need. We basically brought our food and clothes and of course, BYOB (Bring Your Own Boats). : ) We had 8 adults, 2 children and 1 baby and never felt crowded. Both inside and outside were maintained well. Sunsets were awesome, evening fires were enjoyable, along with my son catching a 30 inch Walleye! The grandkids loved those kayaks too. The lake does get busy on the weekends, but not so much that you couldn't enjoy tubing and knee boarding. I'd definitely go back and would recommend to others. Nice Job Hannah!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our family's summer vacation, and everything about it exceeded our expectations. The cabin was clean and comfortable and had plenty of room for the eleven of us, and it was well stocked with everything we needed. We especially appreciated that the grandkids could walk back and forth between the cabin and the beach safely with no traffic worries. The little grandkids loved playing on the sandy beach and in the shallow water. We rented a wave runner for tubing for the older grandkids and adults and had a blast! The grandkids loved catching pan fish off the dock. We enjoyed campfires in the evening, and watching the beautiful sunsets. We would definitely recommend this property to others who are looking for a great place to get away and have some quality family time. Hannah is very responsive to any questions you have, and does an excellent job in providing everything you need to have a great time. Thank you Hannah!

Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything it's advertised to be. The house was clean and roomy, well stocked with anything you could need from kitchen utensils to bed linens to recreational games and water toys. The layout was perfect for young and old alike, a level lot with a very short walk to the sandy beach and clear shallow water where our 6 and 8 year old granddaughters did uncountable canonballs off the dock. We caught sunfish, bass and northerns right off the end of the dock. We enjoyed taking the kayaks up the lake shore to the Nokasippi river and then upstream on the river to the next lake. In the evening we stayed up past midnight enjoying the (mostly) bug free quiet beauty of the lake at twilight as we sat around the fire pit and shared family stories. Four generations of our family were present and they all had a super time. Hannah does a very thorough job of providing you with an information packet that answers all your questions concerning the use of the house and property. She is also quick to answer phone calls if you are in need of further advice. We highly recommend this property for a family fun time vacation.

Owner's Response: So pleased that you had such a wonderful time! My family also really enjoys evenings by the fire - you can't beat the sunsets on Leisure Lane! And there's nothing better than an afternoon with your feet in the sand while kids play on the dock! I'm glad the information packet was helpful and that you found the amenities met your needs.

About Hannah

Hi! I'm Hannah, the property owner. I grew up in central Minnesota and was lucky enough to purchase this property in 2005. I've enjoyed many summers here with family and friends. It really is a wonderful place to enjoy the lake, yard games, and beautiful sunsets by the fire. Work has taken me to the cities, so I've transitioned this home into a rental property for the time being. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!

Hannah purchased this house in 2005
