Great spot for young families

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time spent on Lake Minnewawa. The house was beautiful and very adequate space for two families to share. We loved the play set and the fire area and spent a lot of time in the backyard. We also enjoyed the boat and had very successful fishing trips.

Perfect Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin/home on Lake Minnewawa to relax with our family. It was a huge success! We loved having the pontoon to cruise the lake, go fishing and sun ourselves on. The kitchen/living area was wonderful, we played games on the big kitchen table. The bedrooms were perfect. the cabin was a nice cool temperature when the heat and humidity were killer outside. The huge wrap-around deck was inviting, the quiet and tranquility on Lake Minnewawa were steller. Wonderful owners and booking procedure was no problem!

Tranquility At It's Finest

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos of this property match the appearance perfectly. It is a very clean and well maintained. Enjoyed a stay this winter and I am excited to book a summer stay as well. What a cozy location with all the needed amenities! Gorgeous view from the floor to ceiling windows looking out to the lake and of course wildlife. Enjoyed watching passing deer walk through the property and many varieties of birds coming to the deck for a bite to eat! My daughter and I even spotted a fox on a morning walk. My wife especially enjoyed the fireplace. Very cozy while drinking her morning coffee and enjoying the solitude! Thanks again for a beautiful stay. Look forward to coming back this spring or summer. I would recommend a visit soon!
