About Don or Mary Jo Behrmann

We wish to share our beautiful lake home with others while we can not be there to enjoy it ourselves. I have worked at a Resort and have managed another VRBO property. We feel you will enjoy your vacation at our little piece of paradise in Northern Minnesota.

Don or Mary Jo Behrmann purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Don or Mary Jo Behrmann chose Northeast

The day my husband and I saw this property, I heard the wind through the pine trees that surround the cabin and felt peacefulness. I knew then it was the place we had been searching for. We lived near the twin cities and wanted a place to go for the weekends to relax and enjoy the evenings by the fire. Catching fish, 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, and blueberry picking was an extra. Hope you will enjoy the lake home and extras as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Just 4-15 miles to multiple lakes and bar/restraunts, art center, churches and Scenic State Park

Stayed for 5 days and it was just what the family needed. We couldn't get the kids out of the water for most of the week. Cabin, super clean and well taken care of! Location, very peaceful! We only saw one boat on the lake the entire time, the lake was basically ours to enjoys.

Don & Mary Jo were the perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for solitude, here it is. We saw one person on the lake one day, otherwise I had it all for myself for a week (My wife does not fish). Caught pike, always a fun time. This place is absolutely quiet, there were times my wife and I did not speak due to the absolute serenity of this place.

Don & Mary Jo had everything ready for us, there was charcoal for the grill, a gas grill, firewood was stacked and a plenty. They even had a large cart full of kindling. The home was stocked with all of the kitchen amenities you could want.

Don't wait, book this now. We can't wait till next vacation time to do it again.

Very beautiful and amazing scenery, with a beautiful lake and yard.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and we had the time of our lives. The lake was beautiful and the kayaking was perfect for the kids. The town of BigFork was filled with nice people that told us about the surroundings. The cabin was beautiful.

We have stayed here for three years in a row, over the MEA break. The cabin is clean and well-maintained. It is on a lovely lake and you feel like you are the only ones around. The owners are very helpful and we had everything we needed. Wonderful place!
