About Matthew Winter

We are a married couple of 42 years with a family of 6 kids, all married, and 14 grandkids. Our kids grew up loving our small lake lot in southern Minnesota and as we near retirement we wanted a place that they could bring their families to create some of the same memories. We hope to be able to create some lasting memories for years to come and we hope you join us.

Reservations are booked through our son Matthew.

Matthew Winter purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Matthew Winter chose Minnesota

We chose this property for its serene setting. It just seems to be an escape from the real world. With a large hill on one side of the lake it seems that you are in your own little world. The lake is sparsely populated with few boats on the lake at one time. (The most we have every seen at one time is 3!)

What makes this cabin unique


-Wonderful Shade

-Stocked Lake w/ onsite cleaning house

-Beautiful Sunsets

-Private Swimming Beach

-Private Dock and Boat lift

Comfortable and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We hauled up 13 people ranging in age from 5 months to 65 years and there was plenty of sleeping space, dining room and shower/bathrooms for everybody. You can't find nicer hosts (even a pontoon boat ride) and the dock fishing was suburb. It kept 8 kids and a few adults not only occupied, but enthused, the whole week we were there. Crappies, small mouth bass, large mouth bass, and sunfish all right from the dock. The house seemed much more like a home than a cabin..but a home that features loons calling at night, pelicans sailing overhead and eagles gliding over the lake. Everybody was impressed on well the place was kept up. The only sad part was we had to leave to come home. The kids would have stayed forever. We were 10 minutes from town for supplies and and a half hour to Alexandria if you ever needed to have a wider variety of eating spots. We went out only twice in a week because it was just easier to cook at the house. We'd like to restate how friendly the hosts are. They live right across the yard and you won't find friendlier people. As the owner stated, if you want wi-fi and hayrides, this isn't the place. If you want a fun family place with kids fishing, a small playground, lots of wildlife, two TVs with DVD players and a chance to really unplug, this is the spot for you.

This was a PERFECT place for our family vacation. Something for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

We are planning to repeat. Everyone in our group enjoyed the yard space, the lake, the sandbox. There was something for everyone in our group--toddlers, teenagers and adults. We liked that the lake was almost private--young ones got to try their hand at skiing without fear of other boats coming around the corner and creating extra wakes. Fun, fun, fun. Looking forward to next year.

Great place to stay! Especially if you have a large group of people. Lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay here! The house provided lots of space for our family. We were about 20 all together, but some were coming and going during the week so it worked out great! We felt we had our own private beach area and also the lake. The lake is a fairly small lake and did not have a lot of traffic on it. We had brought 3 jet skis and a boat. For the most part, we didn't have to worry about other people on the lake.

Our family had an awesome time running the jet skis all over the lake. The house was well provided with dishes, 2 refrigerators, dishwasher, indoor games and lawn chairs. You will need to get your own ice as the fridges do not make ice. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you to the Winter's!

Relaxing and private

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cabin. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. The place was private and it often felt like we were the only family on the lake. The cabin was very clean and well kept. There was plenty of room indoors and outdoors for our large group. I would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Nice place out of the way, but communication can be better.

  • 4 of 5

The place lives up to it's billing. The owners are friendly and hospitable. Clean, comfortable, furnished well; but no WiFi which is not a big deal. It is near a couple of small towns that provide services we were looking for, other than going in to Alexandria 30 minutes away for more full services. Canoe, paddle boat, and kayak were provided. Bonfire at night was awesome. Loons on the lake were entertaining. A bald eagle provided morning entertainment. We rented a pontoon boat for a few days and it was convenient. The only advice we feel is needed is a checklist by the owners to follow and make sure it is in the condition they expect it to be upon leaving. Even a walk through with them if they are available at the most, but a checklist would go a long way to avoiding miscommunication . We were given notes on how to specifically make the ceiling fan work as it had it's own problem. There was likely a misunderstanding and lack of communication on how clean the place should be left; and that the cleaning supplies there could be used by us. The damage deposit apparently is tied in to cleaning the place for the next guests. Aside from that it was the only wrinkle and we are very likely to return.
