About Sharon Lassila

Sharon grew up in the Winton area and has pictures of fish she caught from the dock back when she was 5!

Everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our two teens recently and appreciated the fact that there were bunk beds and we could keep our fishing boat at the dock next to the cabin. Ms Lassila was very helpful and had good communication. We found the cabin to have everything we needed with a good sized fridge, coffee pot, stove, etc. and the kids liked the satellite TV. The cabin isn't huge but it's neat and clean and reasonable. :)

Perfect getaway cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our cabin at Fall Lake was wonderful! Nicely updated with natural pine. Had everything we needed including a pre-made camp fire (thank you Sharon.) Close to the water and nice dock. Super clean, great location, nice quiet lake. Saw multiple eagles and loons. Rented a boat motor just at few doors down at PackSack (wonderful folks) so got out to see the entire beautiful lake. Good hiking at close by Bass Lake Trail and Kawishiwi Falls Trail. Road House bar 1/2 mile down the road is a nice touch. Close to Ely for really nice restaurants and shopping. We would definitely go back. Sharon was very communicative and was there for any questions or help we needed. Thank you Sharon!

What a peaceful cozy place!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect get away! Peaceful, charcoal grill (all the stuff you need provided!), nice setup inside, really enjoyed it! Only negatives I'd say is that some supplies were missing (i.e. no salt) and the bed wasn't the most comfortable (take it with a grain of salt though because I always say that wherever we go). But nothing to seriously complain about. There is even a selection of a bunch of VHS movies! We watched Forest Gump and the Flintstones! We'd highly recommend coming here! Best thing about it by far was walking onto the dock at sunrise and watching the sun dissipate the mist from off the lake. So beautiful! You should come!
