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.

Great lake home getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable space. High end kitchen appliances. Nice screen room with comfortable seating in case the mosquitoes are bad. The grill worked great. The lake water is crystal clear, also the drinking water from the fridge door is good.

Beautiful cabin with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at the cabin. Everything was new and clean. The hot tub on a 3 season porch was great in the cold weather. The gas grill is easy to operate. Great place to enjoy food and relax up north.

Fine time for a guys weekend

  • 4 of 5

The cabin and the lake are beautiful, and the hosts are terrific.

I wouldn't recommend pushing the number of adults you have staying, we had 8 and that was about as many as you would want in the winter. The kitchen and living areas are not quite as large as they appear in the pictures, and it got a little cramped when we were all inside.

Overall a wonderful experience.

Ice Fishing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 guys up to do some ice fishing. The cabin accommodated all of us and our winter gear. We all had a great time and even caught a few fish.

Great Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our large group. Big enough to sleep all 13 comfortably and we had fun using the hot tub, steam room and playing in the snow. The kitchen was great for cooking and the fireplace was a nice touch. The only thing is I wish the knives were sharper- so bring your own if you are chopping a lot. We had a great time! Thanks again.
