Why Deb Hanson chose Central

My husband and I have been on Bay Lake for over 20 years. It is such a gorgeous setting! Because of the many bays on the lake, you feel like you're on several lakes instead of just one. It's over 2500 acres of absolutely fantastic lakeshore!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an excellent long weekend getaway. Love your place, the lake, the fishing, the fun. Lots of fun family memories. We hope to repeat next year!?!?!

Bay Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here, first time was in 2015 and then again in 2017. Bay Lake is beautiful and being on the east side there were gorgeous sunsets as we sat around the fire. The house was great and with a very open floor plan that allowed all 8 of us to be comfortable inside at the same time. We rented the pontoon and enjoyed leisurely boat rides and trips to The Lonesome Pine for drinks and dinner.

Deb And Brad are easy to work with and make sure you have everything you need to make your stay perfect.

This a great cabin to spend a quiet, relaxing vacation and would definitely recommend it to other families looking for a nice place to stay on Bay Lake.

Excellent views and cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This property is awesome! Right near the water with open living spaces. Great fishing and good areas to explore. We rented the pontoon-but also used the paddle boat that was available. Even though the weather was on and off all weekend, we werent left feeling like we didnt get to experience a great family trip. The hosts were friendly and helpful as well. Thanks for everything!!

Relaxing lake week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this great cabin on Bay Lake and found it to be perfect and exactly as pictured. The cabin itself is clean, comfortable, well stocked and has everything you need. The location is easily accessible, quiet and the access to the lake is literally steps from the door. Bay Lake is indeed a lake that has something for everyone. We rented the pontoon and logged many hours cruising the lake and just enjoying the area. Weather you fish, kayak, ski, relax in a lawn chair, read or ride bikes..this property has it all. The cabin faces west and the campfire was set early every night, the sunsets were breathtaking. The property owners are great people, friendly, helpful, responsive and take pride in the cabin. The week flew by. You can't go wrong with this rental.

This cabin is comfortable, spacious and impeccably clean! The paddle boat provided hours of fun. The location is perfect.....quiet and at the end of the road. Bay Lake was the perfect fishing spot for panfish, and the owners were so helpful and friendly, and readily available with information about the surrounding area.

We really enjoyed a week of campfires, swimming, fishing and relaxing while listening to loons and enjoying the view.

Great vacation!

Great location, wonderful owners, will return. You should try it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this cabin for a week and had out of town friends for the first half and family for the second half. Our experience, in a word, was "wonderful". If you aren't familiar with Bay Lake it's a great spot. Big enough to do all the water activities but small enough to feel comfortable and cruise the shores on a "happy hour tour". Two hours from Minneapolis with a gas stop, it's just far enough north to qualify as "up north" but close enough to the cities to be convenient.

The pictures don't do the home justice. All log inside, it certainly has that "cabin-y" feel. Nice decks off the front and back, a great charcoal grill, sandy bottom shoreline for swimming, and a flat lot all make it easy to move between the house and the lake/dock.

We were concerned that one bath wouldn't be enough….we had 4 adults and six kids the first half, and six adults and six kids the second half. The one bath was no issues. The kitchen was perfect for cooking food for the gang. We used the BBQ every night.

If you don't have a boat make sure you rent the Pontoon. It's in good shape and seats 12. It can pull a tube with 2-3 little (under 10) kids on it. It's mainly fun for cruising, fishing, and riding over to Ruttger's (get the donut's in the morning and ice cream in the afternoon).

The owners were very thoughtful and helpful. They checked-in every few days to make sure things were good, made sure we had supplies (firewood for the fire pit as an example), and gave great recommendations for the surrounding area.

We loved the home, the location, the ease-of-living and the owners. We highly recommend this cabin and look forward to returning next year!
