Why Gordon Krell chose Northeast

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.

Awesome cabin away from the cities

  • 4 of 5

It was a great cabin for a quick getaway before the summer truly comes to an end. The spacious cabin was excellent for group activities and games. I would definitely come back to this cabin for another end of the summer getaway.

This was our third year at the Pokegema property. Again, we had a wonderful vacation. The power outage of 16 hours was a minor setback in our normal routine, but provided quality family time away from electronic devices. The kids provided enough fish for a fishfry. They were busy swimming, tubing and doing what kids do. The eagle , loons, ducks and chipmunks provided daily entertainment.

The only suggestion for change would be to have two garbage bins. The one was full when we arrived and the owner arranged for an early pickup , for which we were very thankful. However, we filled again before pickup day. We took quite a bit with us on Saturday, but the bin was full. Otherwise, our needs and wants were very well met.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfect for a family vacation. It was our 4th year spending our summer vacation there and it is by far the best place we have rented!

Gordon and Lynn are great and have always made sure everything was well maintained and ready for our stay!

Beautiful, spacious house on lake

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from Gordon in the past and returned because the house is really great. There is lots of room to spread out and have separate time as well as gathering spaces for times together. We were in Grand Rapids to work, so mostly we were at the house in the evenings. We all appreciated that in addition to a fully equipped kitchen there is lots of open cupboard space for groceries and other things. The bedrooms are spacious and there are 3 bathrooms. The weather wasn't warm while we were there, but when it is the house has a terrific porch as well as small beach to enjoy. There also is a washer and dryer which is helpful. Gordon is great to work with and responds to emails immediately. We would highly recommend this property!
