About Billie Gaura

Kevin and Billie Gaura have been married for 21 years, and have dreamed of having a lake cabin for their family and friends for many years!

Billie Gaura purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Billie Gaura chose Loon Lake

We looked for the perfect cabin for two years. We wanted a fantastic setting, we knew it had to be primary waterfront and we wanted enough room for all of our friends and family. We have a sign hanging in it that says 'may our home always be too small to hold all of our friends', and that's exactly how we feel!

What makes this cabin unique

This place is just incredible! It's the perfect blend of rustic and modern. Every amenity that you could hope for in a cabin and yet still right in the middle of the woods and on the edge of the water.

Really appreciated the well thought out and communicated directions and details for the accommodations. My family enjoyed a special long weekend. This place was close enough to town that when we realized we'd forgotten an ingredient for my wife's famous lasagna, it wasn't too much of a drive to the grocery store, but still plenty far enough out of town that relaxing was mandatory!

Quiet mornings on the deck with coffee were quite relaxing (thank you for having a Keurig!!)

Really enjoyed my stay but didn't "love" it.

  • 3 of 5

There was plenty of sleeping quarters for our group of 12 which was wonderful. The lake was crystal clear even in the late summer which was a great plus! The grandkids had a wonderful time in the water and on the little private beach.

Now my list of complaints, very short, and some suggestions to the kind owners.

The main toilet needed repair so flushing manually through the water tank was not fun.

The kitchen only had one bowl to mix things in and the only cookie sheet didn't fit inside the oven.

The directions could stand some more helpful details like, turn down Totem lane go to last house on the lane(address doesn't show at night, almost same color as house). The carpet in the master was soiled, looked like animal urine stains so I didn't feel comfortable going barefoot inside.

Lastly, there were no hammocks like mentioned in the listing so I was disappointed about that and the derelict remains of an old dock and backyard landscape were unsightly. Here are a few suggestions of things to consider adding to your rental: for the kitchen some hot pads, smaller cookie sheet, mixing bowl set, ice cube trays, whisk, griddle and a toaster that works without quirks to get it going. Others, painting the address white, a small library of movies and a few sand toys like buckets and shovels cheap at Dollar store and Target.

I want to end on a positive note so here are the "kudos".

Ample supply of beach towels! Lots of games and puzzles, good variety of seasonings, 2 gift cups to take to the beach, nice big table for meals, ample fans, comfortable beds, wonderful views both day and night sky! Very peaceful!

We really enjoyed our selves at 'Dock Holiday'! Billie and Kevin were fantastic hosts. We truly felt like we could be at home at the property. We had one small problem with the fridge, but Billie and Kevin were there within the hour to help us out. Great and relaxing vacation for my family!

Owner's Response: John, you and your family were a total joy to have at Dock Holiday! No one has ever left the cabin so clean and the note you left us in the guest book was so sweet, that I teared up. Thank you for spending some of your summer at Deer Lake, we hope to have you back. Cheers! Kevin & Billie Gaura

Excellent place for a large family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The yard could use more TLC. The kitchen would benefit from some pyrex for microwave use. The owners were available to assist with questions and needs. The location is perfect and our family was able to spread out in the house and on the dock. The kids loved the sandy beach and we all enjoyed the water access. The dining area was great for meals and games.

We plan to return next year at the same time. Thanks!

BEST place ever, did we mention that. The lake was warm, the house was fabulous!! But the views of the sunset were our favorite. The wife and I loved the end of the day after the kids were totally wiped out just sitting on the sandy beach and talking about our dreams. It was a place for us to relax, have fun and create memories all in one. The owners totally were there for us if we needed anything, but we didn't. Everything was clean and ready for us to enjoy. OHH, we also saw Bald Eagles catch fish right in front of the dock, that was very cool for the kids.
