The owners live across the street and are extremely accommodating and friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We went to MN for my GMA memorial. We were worried the place would not house the 6 of us. The pics do not do this place justice. This place could comfortably sleep 8. It was spotless. It has two living areas and a large eat in kitchen. After the memorial we had the family come back to our place. We had 32 ppl over for a bbq. We sat in the beautiful private yard and grilled out. Not one time did we feel overcrowded. We were short on a few chairs, so the owners gave us the chairs right off their patio! Such friendly owners. So pleased!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was very cozy and comfortable with great indoor and outdoor places to relax. We found it to be very well stocked and immaculately clean. We enjoyed the nearby walking trails and park, as well as walking downtown. Being close to the center of town made it easy to find our way to stores, restaurants, Itasca State Park and anything we needed. Ann and Mike were great to work with and we would be happy to stay there if we are in the area again!

Clean property - Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Park Rapids for work and I was lucky enough to find a clean house and in the process meet some really great people. I stayed for approximately 5 weeks. The hosts live close by and were always helpful and kept the property clean. I would recommend this property to anyone. Mike and Ann are great hosts and have great knowledge of the area. I hope to stay here again!

Lovely and cozy home

  • 5 of 5

My dad and I were in the area to visit Itasca State Park. The house was perfect for our needs with plenty of space. The decorating was fun, "up north," and helped you feel like you were getting away. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Nice front porch to sit on. The kitchen was well stocked and had a great built-in eating area. Mike and Ann were very helpful and considerate, even bringing over a book and CDs Ann thought my dad might enjoy. The Heartland trail is very close for biking/walking. Would definitely visit again.

Our restaurants can't be beat and a trip to the Royal Bar is a must. The best Burgers around.
