About Paul & Therese Erickson

Paul and I have owned and operated Camp Holiday Resort & Campground since 2003. We have two children and two pets. We love the outdoors, hunting, camping, fishing are many of the things we like to do as a family.

Paul & Therese Erickson purchased this house in 2012

Why Paul & Therese Erickson chose Deerwood

We have been looking for the right house to purchase for our retirement for when our kids take over the resort. That opportunity came about for us. A seclude, private home came up for sale on the east side of the lake. It is 30 wooded acres that has 900 ft of lake shore. The driveway winds you through the woods to this three story home. The house is all tongue and groove paneling.

What makes this house unique

You will also be able to you use all the amenities at Camp Holiday Resort & Campground.

A relaxing weekend at a beautiful home in a wooded oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was our annual gathering of friends. Six couples in one building. Plenty of space and beds and bathrooms. A beautiful kitchen and large table for our meals and games. Nearby trails for snowmobiling and beautiful views of the woods and lake. I would suggest to the rest of our group to hold this gathering here every year. Thanks Camp Holiday!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 10 adults, 4 kids and a baby had a wonderful stay in this home. It is beautifully designed and decorated and the layout is perfect to accommodate a larger group. We were very impressed with the two refrigerators, two coffee makers, etc. The view of the woods and lake is beautiful and I can only imagine how much fun it would be to stay in the summer. Our group has been booking various places for the past 5 or so years and this was easily our favorite place and one we hope to return to. Thanks for the great stay!

Great place; room for everyone! Nice hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely hosts, who made us feel welcome.

The place was enormous, perfect for our whole family.

Comfortable. The only downside to the place was the poor lighting in the living room. SO dark for aging eyes (3 of us) and for reading. The strip lights by the ceiling glared too much, and not good for reading, knitting, etc.

This home is well-stocked, we had many board games and cards played in that kitchen, as well as arts and crafts by our youngest granddaughter.

Fabulous Lake House

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my extended family at this vacation home and it was wonderful. We had several kids and 5 adult couples and everyone was thrilled with the accommodations - lots of space, clean and comfortable. We were extremely impressed with the well manicured lawn, lots of privacy and fantastic fire pit with lots of outdoor seating, grill, beach area, and lake access. The kitchen was very spacious and nicely appointed and there was plenty of dining space for our 10 adults and 6 kids. We all loved the size of the bedrooms and the quality of the mattresses and linens. Having Camp Holiday nearby was also great for rental equipment, their playground, and store. We highly recommend renting a pontoon along with the house, as it was great to have easily accessible to fish or swim or cruise around. The service from Therese and her team was also wonderful. Very attentive and helpful and made things very easy. Wi-Fi was great as well. I would highly recommend this house/lake/area if looking for a great getaway cabin for friends or family.
