I surprised my wife with a stay here for our anniversary. It was very private, beautiful, and relaxing, with a delicious breakfast in the morning. We look forward to another visit!

Beautiful property. Charming hosts.

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 days during the week and it was a wonderful experience. The room was very clean and accommodating. The breakfasts were served hot and delicious. We spent time on the dock and the lake was pristine with jumping fish and swimming turtles.

My stay was nothing short of fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My stay was nothing short of fabulous! For one, the setting is idyllic, restful, contemplative and Minnesota beautiful. The guest house was very comfortable, clean and inviting. I chose to be there to do some writing and it was exquisite in every way. Cristie and Greg were exceptionally gracious hosts, while at the same time very respectful of privacy and personal space. I felt particularly indulged by their "robust" breakfasts that for me were nutrients for the body and soul! Overall they deserve a 5+ star rating!

Peaceful getaway on a lake.

  • 5 of 5

Christie and Greg have a wonderful property on Howard Lake. Their hospitality was top notch and the breakfasts were delicious. The Guest House is modern, very clean and the perfect amount of space yet still cozy. There are plenty of great local restaurants and vineyards to visit. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Minneapolis for the Ryder Cup, but seeing the beautiful countryside was the highlight to our trip from Texas! This is a unique property, a bit remote but so peaceful and scenic! Christie was a gracious hostess! She was so accommodating to our early morning schedule, and a great communicator for suggestions about the area! Breakfast was delicious and generous, a homemade treat unusual to most properties.

Book this property! You will be glad you did!

A Short Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We only had time for a mini vacation, so we drove from the Twin Cities to this lovely location in less than an hour. The accommodation was exactly as advertised - private with a beautiful view of the lake and very comfortable. Our hosts were very friendly and willing to answer any of our questions. We recommend it.
