Relaxing Cabin Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for your beautiful cabin rental. Our family had such a nice time relaxing, swimming, boating, and enjoying the sunsets. Our dog especially had a great time - she especially enjoyed looking out the open window on the lake during the evenings. She really enjoyed the dog tie so she could run around free. Every window in the house had such an amazing view. The sunset every evening was spectacular. The house was clean, well stocked (I didn't even have to go out and buy laundry detergent), and much prettier in person! We had such a wonderful time and have fond memories of our lake vacation. Thank you.

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 3 nights in June for a mini-family reunion and were thrilled with it. The owners were professional, friendly and easy to work with. The pictures do not do it justice as the home is even more spacious and well maintained in real life. There was plenty of space for our group of 6 adults, 4 children to roam without being crowded. There are plenty of activities at the house (basketball, tennis, swimming, etc) and it looks like the owners are looking to add more features in the future. The deck was incredible and provided some great sunset views! Fishing was plentiful and the weather was fantastic. We can't wait to return on our next reunion and perhaps stay a little longer...

Side note: the home is equipped with an elevator and a roll-in shower. We did not use the elevator but what a great way to include every person on vacation!

Outstanding vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our friends and their family who are from MN. We are from CA. Loved every second of it. This home is so spacious. We had 13 people in it, never felt crowded. The amenities are outstanding. The view is outstanding. And being from CA, the lack of crowds was outstanding!!!! I love to fish, and the lake was good to me. Cannot recommend this enough.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This was our first "Family Vacation" with ages from 2 to 72 and this lake house made it absolutely perfect for us. House is top of the line but yet so comfortably casual. Kitchen is huge so several cooks and cleanups can happen at the same time. Plenty of bedrooms and baths, outside space allows many activities to go on with a place for quiet time for those who want it. Lake is crystal clear with easy wading for small children. Fishing was great for experienced fishermen and first time kids. Sunsets, campfire and thunderstorm made it all even more perfect. To choose one best thing about this lake house vacation is impossible. CA and AZ guests realize what MN has to offer and are more than impressed ! Even the bugs cooperated and were not pests !!!

We have been renting lake homes/cottages/cabins and yes, occasionally "dumps," for years. This is by far the best of the best. It is expansive, yet cozy, luxurious but rustic; all without being pretentious or "fragile." The owners are wonderful. We had reserved the property for a family reunion after my daughter's wedding in Elk River in June. We had family coming from FL, cousins coming from DC and Texas, as well as my sons from Chicago and Milwaukee. There was room for all! We could choose to visit on one of several porches, explore the lake, relax on the deck, dangle toes in the water from the dock; or retreat to a comfy corner inside for some alone time. The elevator was a Godsend and key in my site selection, since my father was in end stage lymphoma. We knew this would be our last family gathering with him. In May, my father died, and suddenly, the reunion turned into a memorial service; which we conducted ourselves, on the lake. Our sunset reminiscing on the deck was very healing. The fire-pit was wonderful! The kitchen is perfectly equipped. The lake is fantastic. We rented a pontoon. Our guests enjoyed poking around New London and we had a fun kick-off lunch at O'Neil's in Spicer. This is a fantastic property. Worth every cent! We hope to come back. I am very grateful to these owners for their kindness and accommodations.
