Perfect beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house and setting were perfect. It was very clean and quiet. The weather was perfect. The house was comfortable. The owners really take pride in their properties. The only thing we would have changed is not really under their control. There is a large population of geese in the area and they leave quite a mess on the beach and my 5 yr old had 2 leeches bite her at separate times from the lake. The strange thing is that all of us were in the lake for nearly 4 days straight (at one time 10 of us) and no one else had any incident so I'm not sure what my daughter was doing differently that attracted them to her.

Overall, I would definitely go back. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Perfect vacation spot for a moms only retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect from the start of the booking process to the end with a quick refund of our damage deposit. Ken was able to answer any questions I had prior to our trip very quickly. The cabin is beautiful! And it comes equipped with new soft clean linens/towels. The beds were super comfortable and had lots of pillow/blanket choices. The kitchen was stocked with all basic kitchen utensils. The hooks on the wall were perfect for purses, bags, jackets & towels. The lighting at night was great inside. We felt very comfortable hanging out playing cards at the kitchen table. The fire rings and the can with kindling were very special touches. We enjoyed looking at all the beautiful rocks on our own private beach. It truely was special. Great large sign with lighting to signal where the cabins are off the road. Guests should read the charming guest book for places to eat and visit. Everything that was suggested and tried was amazing! Thanks for a wonderful trip. We highly recommend staying at this cabin and visiting Gaylord!

Was very convenient for snowmobiling

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and welcoming. The cabin was on the lake and access to the trails for snowmobiling was very accessible and easy to get to, we were able to avoid all roads. We had a blast. Ken the owner was very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this cabin for both Summer and for winter snowmobiling. We will definately be back. Thanks for the opportunity to visit. We cant wait to return.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin last minute because of a change in plans for snowmobiling (not enough snow south) so didn't have much time to research. This place was great! Cabin had everything we needed and furnishings and everything are like new. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of parking for trailers and trucks. We will recommend this place to our friends and we will definitely stay here again.
