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.
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
Awesome family weekend!
My husband and I with our 4 young kids rented this cute cabin for Labor Day weekend. We had so much fun. The cabin was really cute, nice updated kitchen with everything you could need. It was really clean and we all slept great. We rented Penny's pontoon boat which was awesome, did tons of fishing and swimming. There is a little sandy beach which my kids loved to play. The water around the dock is shallow and clear sandy bottom, great for wading and splashing around. My boys caught baby snapping turtles (we saw 3!) and a baby snake too. Our last night we had a fire and smores. It was nice to have access to the canoe and kayaks and the washer and dryer were good to have too because the kids got really dirty playing outside. There is also a hammock by the lake which was a nice touch. Penny was a great host, helpful and easy to get a hold of. The only thing I would suggest is if you bring a toddler who is not great with stairs yet, you might want to bring a baby gate along, out 18 month old loved the stairs going up stairs and just had to watch her really close since we couldn't really keep her off of them. We really hope to return someday, we had a great time!
I am so glad you had a great time and I was glad to have stopped by just in time to see the baby snapping turtles. I Will get a baby gate for the cabin great idea. I hope you will make it your lake home again sometime. Penny
