Great location, well-stocked cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The screened-in porch was wonderful, and the cabin had all the necessary amenities to make us feel at home for our stay. The lake is great for boating, and we also did some swimming off the dock.

Wonderful family weekend on Big Spirit, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 got together for a long weekend. The two bedrooms and loft were plenty for 6 people. Very nice screened in porch, and smaller dock that was great for evening fishing. Everything worked great, and descriptions were perfect. Dead end road so no traffic, very quiet. Looking forward to staying again.

Nearest Beach
Car: necessary

Big Spirit Lake (also known as 'the quiet lake) is the largest of Iowa's Great Lakes. This cabin is within 15 minutes of three excellent 18-hole courses, Arnold's Amusement Park, all manner of water sports activities, bike trails, state parks. But the cabin itself is in a quiet neighborhood, away from the noise and crowds. There is a shared dock on the main lake. Immediately behind the cabin is a quiet lagoon with a boat hoist installed. This lagoon also affords a modern boat ramp for public use. The lagoon provides direct and immediate access to the main lake.
