About Penny Aguirre
My parents came to sugarbush when I was a youngster more than 30 some years ago and I now have a home there as do many of my relatives. It was such a gift to know and love this lake. I also own the local winery, Richwood Winery, and spend most of the summer in paradise.
Why Penny Aguirre chose Ogema
My parent's home is special as it has a beach, which is rare in this tree-lined , often steep banked lake. It is has been completely updated to provide modern conveniences while keeping the charm of the log cabin in the woods that my parents created.
What makes this Cabin unique
Pontoon available for rent (the preferred method of cruising the lake), a canoe, kayaks, beach, very isolated on a private dead end road. Dogs are welcome and because it is so isolated, most have been able to freely run round without worry. Internet, cable, Netflix, blue ray are also there if you want it. To be on one of the cleanest lakes in Minnesota with wild life abundant is an experience I want to share with others.
My husband and I rented Penny's cabin for a weekend stay (sort of a mini-honeymoon). The cabin was incredibly clean with great amenities, but a great cabin feel. Penny greeted us upon our arrival and was very friendly and helpful. We were also able to bring out dog which was a great plus. She ran around the property and down by the lake. There was more than enough space for the two of us, and we would probably go back with a few more people next time. We went in mid-October so it was chilly and we didn't spend much time at the lake. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals and coffee in the morning. We also spent a couple hours on Saturday at the winery down the road, and it was a great activity. We did a hike at nearby Tamarack Wildlife Refuge which was a quick and easy drive. I would definitely recommend this cabin!
I am happy that you enjoyed your time at the cabin and I hope you will return in summer and enjoy time on Big Sugarbush Lake. Thanks for stopping at the winery and I am glad you made it to Tamarac as well. Congratulations again on your wedding and glad to be able to provide a place for your mini honeymoon. Penny
Great location and excellent cabin with lots of ammenities!
I am so glad you enjoyed your time, I hope you return! Penny
Peaceful family getaway
We brought our 4 teen-young adult children, and we all fit very comfortably. The cabin was very clean and we'll stocked. The lake was so peaceful. We had a fabulous time floating in the water right off the dock. The sand bottom is weed free to the end of the dock. Penny was so accommodating, and help us with any problem we had - when our boat broke down, she got a mechanic to come to the cabin and help us out. As always, the people of Richwood and Detroit Lakes are so friendly. Staying at Penny's place felt like visiting a friend. We will be back!
It was a pleasure to have you and I was so happy to hear that the teenagers enjoyed their time as well and I hope they will forever appreciate being "lakers". I do hope you return. Penny
Exactly as described.
We had a wonderful stay at Penny's cabin. Everything was just as she listed. We stayed in and cooked several days. The kitchen was stocked with any pan, utensil or container you needed. Extremely clean, plenty of towels, and toiletries.
We used the pontoon one day which was extremely relaxing, motoring around Sugar Bush Lake and we also paddled around on the kayaks. Our kids had a blast swimming and making sand castles in the sand beach area.
Thank you Penny for everything!
Thank you David, it was a joy to have you and I am glad the kids had fun! Thanks for leaving the place so nice! Penny
Beautiful cabin on a great lake
We loved the cabin and the lake.
It was fun to see that you were taking full advantage of the boats,the lake and fire pit. I hope you return..it was a pleasure to have you as guests. Penny
Very comfortable cabin on the lake north of Detroit Lakes
We enjoyed spending a fall weekend at the cabin. Comfortable furniture , pretty views of the lake. Steps away from the water...Just a very cozy feeling that made us feel at home right away. The cabin is in a woodsy location maybe 25 minutes north of Detroit Lakes.
I am so glad you enjoyed your lake time at my cabin up North!! Penny
Tamarac Wildlife Refuge, lake activities, Shooting Star Casino only 25 minute drive, Richwood Winery only 7.5 minutes away with music on the weekends.
