Johnson's Moundview has been in the family for generations. The original owners, George and Vivian, were sweethearts to the end of 62 happily married years! Together they had 11 children and this was their family vacation home. Nearly 8 decades and 5 generations later, it continues to be one of the Johnson family's favorite destination. Their vision was to bless as many people as possible with the lake home, and so the tradition carries on!

Lisa Johnson Cabin Admin. purchased this house in 1948

Great weekend at Johnson's Mound View

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting family who live in Minneapolis area and wanted a lakefront place where we could have some fun on the water. This cabin is well equipped and can easily accommodate 10 or more. We had only 5 so had lots of room. Really loved the paddleboat and the lake was crystal clear. Only tiny hitch was the smoke detector in the kitchen which decided to let us know it needed a battery replacement and was very high on the wall. Minor problem but maybe having a step ladder accessible would be useful. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return again.

Wonderful and Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful weekend stay for my family and the dog at the lake house. They welcomed us with dog treats and a variety of muffins, which was a delightful surprise. The lake behind the house was crystal clear and beautiful. We had everything we needed at the cabin--a well equipped kitchen, towels, extra blankets, life jackets, canoe, paddle boat. We were very pleased with our stay and recommend this place.
