Why Gordon Krell chose Grand Rapids

Our family has been taking resort vacations at this location on Lake Pokegama since 1974. In 2000 a lot became available and we purchased it. Our dream home on the lake was completed in 2002. We have captured many wonderful family memories over the years. With our kids involved in sports and work we just are not able to spend the time we would like enjoying the cabin.

What makes this house unique

This lake home affords all of the amenities of home for all seasons. Whether enjoying the outdoor lake activities or curling up inside by the fire to watch a movie or read book, there is something for everyone.

What a great house! Huge, so well stocked, Roomy and really accommodates our family. Had my mom's 90 year birthday here. It is the perfect VRBO! Gordon is so easy to work with and the pictures of this house don't do it justice!

My favorite VRBO!!!!

Wonderful again!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at this wonderful home on Pokegama Lake. This home is absolutely beautiful. There is so much room, very well stocked, Beautiful views of the lake, and extremely peaceful. This is one of the prettiest houses on this lake. We really feel like this is our summer home and absolutely could not be happier with this home. Gordon is very easy to work with. This continues to be my favorite VRBO. I have booked it again for a week in October and I am looking forward to that trip.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

This has been our third summer at this wonderful cabin. It accomadates our large family and the huge lawn allows us to have bean bag, croquet, and wiffle ball tournaments - we're a bit competitive! The fire pit in the evening is perfect for nice long bonfires. Lake Pokegama is a clean, clear, and the fishing is usually good.

We look forward to our family week here every summer!! Thank you, Gordon!

Beautiful lake setting with lots of room

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully done and comfortable. The basement is finished but offers a number of extra sleeping spots. Views of the lake are wonderful. Enjoyed the fire pit and treking around in the woods.

Great location and it worked awesome for our snowmobile trip. We could ride right from the house. It was nice that town was so close too! We had an awesome time. We will definitely be back!!
