Mother-Daughter Weekend Success
The owner was very easy to work with and was responsive. The beds were comfortable, we had the perfect amount of space for the 9 of us (mothers and daughters) between the Nut House and the Squirrel's Nest. The kitchen was stocked with all that we needed. I loved the bath towels -- plush and smelled good. Our visit was in an unseasonable April with ice and snow so we weren't able to enjoy all the outdoor amenities. The gas fireplace kept us warm and cozy though! We plan to do it again next year in hopes a warmer April to be able to enjoy the deck.
Clean, comfortable cabin
We really enjoyed the Cabin at Lake Francis. The place is very well appointed and provided a comfortable stay while we were visiting Mankato area. I highly recommend this place and will definitely stay there again as we frequent the area.
Great Cabin on the Lake
Everthing here was the ultimate relaxing cabin experience. Our host was responsive and respectful. One suggestion would be to depersonalize a bit, and another would be to have the instructions printed and left on the counter for the guests arrival and reference.
This cabin at Lake Francis has all the goodies. The lake is absolutely amazing and clean. The cabin is wonderful. It has everything a person needs to be able to relax and enjoy a vacation. Plus it was extremely clean and well kept. The owner of the cabin is extremely fair and a great person to work with. I cant explain how much we enjoyed our time. Don't think twice about booking this cabin just do it!
Great deck, lovely cabin
Our family (two adults and four young kids) had a wonderful and relaxing stay. This cabin is clean, comfortable, and has every convenience. Lovely deck, swam off the dock, s'mores at the firepit, the works. This is a watercraft lake with motor boats, but not insanely busy or too noisy. The cabin had toys, games, books galore for the kids, and we loved getting out on the paddle boat! Next time we will try out the pontoon!
The property is very well maintained and cleaned. The cabin has lost of amenities as well- extra kitchen gadgets, books, games, movies, coloring, plus lots of great outdoor seating. You will not be disappointed if you stay!
