Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send you a note of appreciation about our recent stay at Pelican Lake Lodge. We have a family of 9 adults and 5 children and all agreed it was the best vacation place we have ever rented. The house was beautiful and the lake was awesome. The beach was the most kid friendly place we've ever seen with clear water, wonderful sand, and such a gentle slope the stress of having them in the water was nonexistent. Although 14 people made the house a little tight with seating and sleeping everyone agreed it was 5-star. We LOVED the whole place.

We had a wonderful time and you were great at responding to questions that came up and information needed. Thank you for your hospitality and helping us make our 2013 vacation such a memorable one.

Beach is beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home, comphy beds, just wish living room was a little larger. Only other thing was wish we could have fished off the dock. Having all the beach toys is an added bonus. Overall wonderful place.

Beautiful property, amazing lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13, 8 adults and 5 children, had a fantastic week at Dave and Olga's house. We had plenty of room, and the beds were comfortable. The beach is remarkable clean sand, and the kids spent hours each day playing in it. Even better, the lake water is clear and the bottom is sandy and extremely shallow, less than 4 feet deep 100 yards out, with nary a weed in sight. Great place for kids to play safely, and Dave and Olga provide a paddle boat, 3 kayaks, and a stand-up paddle board for use, as well as a huge assortment of sand toys. All we had to bring were towels and sunscreen. There are also many comfy chairs provided for the beach area for lounging. We rented a pontoon boat and were able to tie it to the dock without issue. Several in our party mountain biked at the local Cuyuna Lakes trails less than 20 minutes away, which are fantastic. The steam room in the basement is amazing as well. We are hoping to rent this property again next year for our family vacation, it was just perfect.

Perfect summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We definitely want to stay again! The sandy beach and shallow lake were perfect for the grandchildren. There are plenty of water toys for all ages and plenty of chairs to sit on. The cabin is beautiful, clean, and well maintained. We enjoyed the campfire while watching the sun set. The screened in porch is wonderful any time of the day but especially when the mosquitoes are out. The natural gas grill worked great! We had a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation. The owners are wonderful to work with. They promptly take care of any problems or concerns you may have during your stay. Thank you Olga and Dave.

This is a beautiful setting for your summer vacation at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our grandchildren are ages 2 to 18. The little ones love the sandy beach & clear shallow water. Fishing is good & we have walleye to eat. The home is beautiful & we especially enjoy the screened in porch to play cards in after we have had a fire & the bugs appear. Grill works great. The new table is great. We had a wonderful vacation in this comfortable beautiful setting. Thank you Olga & Dave.
