About Kevin Swan
We're a blended family with four sons ranging in age from 24 to 17. We have absolutely LOVED this cabin for so many years. The kids couldn't spend enough time there in the summer no matter how often we traveled up there. But as they've grown older, "other interests" (and girls) pull at their time and we just don't spend as much time there as we used to. So we started renting it it on our own a little bit several years ago and then began listing it on VRBO in the summer of 2016.
Kevin Swan purchased this Cabin in 1998
Why Kevin Swan chose Nevis
First of all, our lot is over 2 acres, most of it wooded, and it's "deeper" than it is "wider." So the lake and cabin are far away from the road so there's very little road noise and a great deal of privacy. In fact, when you're on our lot, you can't see a dwelling on EITHER SIDE of you, so you have your own private paradise. Our cabin is charming, with a tongue in groove pine interior and a screened-in porch that is an AMAZING place to eat dinner in the evening and watch the sunset. But BY FAR, the best thing about our place is the beach. We challenge you to find a nicer privately owned beach with such a phenomenal entry to the water anywhere in Minnesota! Our beach is over 200 feet long and 50 feet deep. The sand is soft and clean. We have an incredibly gentle and shallow entry to the water which makes it perfect for little kids. The bottom of the lake is a hard sand bottom (ie not "mushy") and there are absolutely NO WEEDS you have to deal with. Like we said, we challenge you to find a more perfect combination of privacy, beach and beautiful water anywhere in the state!
What makes this Cabin unique
Unlike a lot of "McMansions" that tend to get built on lakes these days, our cabin is truly a cabin! Probably the most distinctive feature of our place is we have NO TELEVISION so you won't have to fight a battle with your kids about wanting them to stop watching the boob tube and get outside and enjoy the great outdoors! But with a beach like ours and a lake like ours, that shouldn't be a problem! We have plenty of board games on hand for those rainy days and we have a real wood-burning fireplace that provides great ambiance if it's a chilly or overcast day. But since that hardly ever happens at Canandaigua (!), most of the time, you'll be outside or sitting in the screened in porch enjoying the great lake air and appreciating a spectacular sunset every evening. Itasca State Park and the headwaters of the Mississippi are less than an hour's drive away, and there are tons of activities to do in the surrounding area. It's a perfect family summer vacation destination!
