Fun new adventure

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 couples who came for the Hot Air Balloon Festival & sight seeing. Three of the couples had never rented a house before. We all loved it. The quiet wooded area was perfect. We sat in the screened in porch. We played pool & darts & cards & laghed & told stories & had the best time. The house affords us the opportunity to all be together. It had everything we needed as far as kitchen supplies. The only thing I would suggest is a kitchen garbage can & more wash cloths. We all would come back again. Thank you for allow us the pleasure & use of your home.

Great Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a house on a lake for nine people. This house was absolutely perfect. Everyone had a private sleeping space. The game room complete with pool table, dart board,a and poker table was ideal. The bonfire pit and huge deck with screened in porch were fantastic. If you are looking for a quality place to stay with great amenities, this is the place.

The owners were very easy to work with and supportive. We would absolutely stay again.

Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was in a great location with easy access to Duluth, there were activities for people of all ages to enjoy. Our group was 10 people, ages ranging from 93 to 1.5 and everyone left not wanting to go home quite yet! The lake was great for swimming and relaxing, the cabin had plenty of space for us all. I would definitely recommend this well maintained cabin to anyone!

Beautiful home. Everything was nice and clean.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay. It was a nice peaceful property. Loved the spacious divided family rooms. You can either hang out at the nice living area or the in the game room. It had a pool table, poker table, and play station 2. It even had a bar area, but we didn't use it. We also enjoyed the lakefront view surrounded by the gigantic tall pines.

I did wish there were better quality utensils to cook with and for serving. The ones that were available were plastic so during cooking, they got so flexible and was bending too much I kinda got frustrated. This was our first time renting a rental property, so for people like me, I would have appreciated if the property owner reached out to renters ahead of time and informed them of some things that are not provided and should bring. For example trash bags and toilet paper.

Other then this, we enjoyed our stay.

Stepping Stones AFC PARTY of 9 on vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group from our group homes and there was something for every single one of us. It is a beautiful home set in a quiet and private area with room to spread out. We were a little disappointed that it showed a swim raft, that we were looking forward to using. However it wasn't there, but we survived and it didn't stop us from having fun.

We choose to go without tv when we take our annual vacation, because we try to unplug (YES, unplug!!!). We had one stormy night and I thought, oh the game room has great seating, a nice big tv and HUGE selection of movies....back up plan, I'll do a movie night! I looked around at our group and my heart melted. Some were playing pool, some were reading their new books from our days out sightseeing, some were coloring, others were playing darts, some were looking at their cameras of the pictures they took and the laughter, the smiles, the enjoyment, the hard work that goes into pulling off planning a "perfect" vacation for 9 people....WAS ACHIEVED!!! My heart is full and we are blessed.

The house not only provided all of the necessities....pot, pans, silverware, dishes, grilling utensils, towels, washcloths, bedding, dish soap, hand soap and all of the little things that you don't remember to pack. It provided us a place where we created wonderful memories to fill our hearts forever.

We enjoyed the game room the most and spent much of our bonding and leisure time playing, pool. darts, joking around, games and singing. We liked being close to Duluth but away from the chaos. We brought kayaks and Island lake is absolutely beautiful to explore.

Rich and Julie responded back to us very quickly to answer any questions or solve any problems.

We would stay again and would highly recommend it to others.

THANK YOU!!!

Sincerely,

The Stepping Stones AFC Party of 9 (2017)

First Family reunion in 8 years

  • 5 of 5

Our family came together from multiple states to enjoy this spacious well maintained home. The amenities and available entertainment within the house and property kept our family connected during our week long stay. We spent a lot of time fishing kayaking playing yard games and most of all enjoying the perfect game room. The house had everything we needed and the owners were very receptive and accommodating, making our stay perfect!! Thanks for everything!!
