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.

Best NYE weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our friends wanted a place to go over NYE weekend to relax, cook good food, and get out of the cities! Dave and Olga's cabin was the perfect winter getaway. The cabin itself is absolutely beautiful and spacious. The living room had a wonderful cozy fireplace and floor to ceiling windows overlooking Pelican Lake. The basement had a steam room which was heavenly and the screened in porch included a sunken hot tub and nice grill. Because we are a bunch of foodies, we brought our own cook wear - which we quickly learned after arriving was unnecessary, Dave and Olga supplied everything a cook needs! Also - you don't find many gas stoves in rentals, so that was also a plus. On top of the great amenities, the cabin was immaculate and all the beds were super cozy. Could not recommend this cabin more - we are already planing our next trip!

Beautiful cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a great place to stay for our multi-family fall get-a-way! While we didn't get to use the beautiful lake right out the door, we did get to view it each day and even had a fall campfire by it one night. The spacious cabin was large enough for our 3 families (12 in total), with 4 bedrooms suitable for sleeping. The bathrooms in this place are amazing - most of us enjoyed a steam shower at least once. Some of the adults went for a nice run one morning; if you go out the door down to one road, turn around & go to the other road & back, it is a nice 5 mile run. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub; the kids for a daytime dip & the adults for a nighttime dip with drinks to enjoy. The location is great because, while you can't really walk anywhere, you are about 10 miles from most cities. All the cities around have great shopping, eateries, coffee & even some good breweries. We really enjoyed dinner at Manhatten's, 15 minutes away.

Our group only saw one downside to this cabin - the kitchen is quite small for how many can fit in the cabin. We were able to get all our food in and 1 set of adults could cook comfortably, but the kitchen was jam-packed full of stuff for our 3-day weekend. And the table only seats 6 people, so our group had to let kids sit at table while adults stood. If it were warm enough to eat outside however, the summer porch would have been great to sit on (adjacent to the kitchen).

Overall a beautiful cabin that we'd love to return to! The owners were also very helpful and always got back to me when I had questions. Thanks Olga & Dave!

Owner's Response: Abbie, Thank you so much for the kind words, we really appreciate it. And while there is nothing we can do about the size of the kitchen, we did just get a new 3' x 6' dining table with two 6' benches, plus 2-4 chairs, that will seat at least 8-10 people (and if it's kids, probably more). Sincerely, Olga and Dave

Great Get-away -Brilliant Views!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. We especially made use of the 3-season porch. The beach is fantastic and we enjoyed evening fires and watching the sunset. The property is well maintained.

Spacious, clean and great amenities!

  • 4 of 5

Dave and Olga's lake home was the perfect place for our annual summer family gathering! It provided plenty of space for 3 families with 3 young children and the sandy beach, shallow water and lots of lake toys made for a great time! The fire pit, swings and hammock also made for fun memorable times.

Fantastic beach, clear water, shallow (no more than 4 ft) for at least a couple hundred yards, then finally drops off. Was absolutely perfect for kids. They were able to run around, play on the beach and swim in the water without parents constantly worrying. Which equals fun for kids and more relaxing for parents. We brought a speedboat and rented a pontoon. Lots to do. We rented this cabin and the one right next door. (total of 10 adults and 7 kids) There is woods the other side of each house so it felt like we were at our own private getaway. Extended family from all over the country and we've vacationed in numerous spots from Oregon to North Carolina and this is on the very short list to come back.

Olga even met us on the way up there to get us new paddles for the kayaks.
