Peaceful Lakefront House, 5 Bedrooms / 3 Baths ~ Game Room / Pool Table
About Marjorie Safaie
We are native Minnesotans who moved to California in 2003. I, Marjorie, grew up in neighboring Aitkin. Both my husband and I enjoyed the summers and the lakes of Minnesota and had both dreamed of owning a vacation property there someday. We have many family members and friends in Minnesota and this large home has been a wonderful place to gather.
Marjorie Safaie purchased this House in 2018
Why Marjorie Safaie chose Deerwood
Our vacationers love how it is mostly one level living, including the pool table and game room, which is visible from the kitchen so even those who are doing the cooking are part of the fun! We stayed here as a vacation rental spot for our own family in Summer 2017. We absolutely fell in love with everything about the property, and knew this was where our dream would become a reality. The home is amazing, the lot it sits on is private and peaceful, the lake is so close you can talk to those on the dock from the balcony!! Furthermore, we enjoy this area because of the water activities, huge property and lot for our family to spread out in while there, restaurants and activities nearby if we want to get out, great golfing nearby. And, only two hours to get to from the Minneapolis airport. Great restaurants and golfing within 10 minutes!
What makes this House unique
The resident loon and eagles on this lake never fail to inspire us. Our property is around 2 acres filled with oak and pine trees and in a rural ,peaceful setting. Now that we own this home, we have made a few additions so our family and all the kids and adults alike will enjoy it even more including a pool table with a ping pong table overlay. Hours of fun, if the lake itself isn't already enough!!

Great retreat for multiple families!
A nice cozy place to enjoy a lazy winter weekend with friends and family. They had everything we needed and plenty of space for 16 guests. If you are thinking about renting this property, we highly recommend it!

Wonderful location & cabin
My sisters and our families stayed at this property for Christmas. Marjorie was very quick to answer any questions we had and was very accommodating to our large group. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. There was even a Christmas tree up for us to enjoy upon check in. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already been trying to plan our next stay! We can not say enough good things about this VRBO rental and I would definitely encourage others to stay!
Perfect setting for our large family gathering
We really enjoyed our family weekend together at your home this December. We filled every bed and were grateful to the many spaces for family togather to play pool, ping pong, or board games; piece puzzles, watch movies, or cook. Accommodations were nice, house was well stocked, and beds were comfortable. Booking and check in went smoothly and Marjorie responded to all our questions about the house or area. We hope to come again!.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!!
Sad we had to leave
Beautiful cabin with EVERYTHING anyone would need! The kids had a great time in the soak tub every night. Fresh towels. Very clean and cozy with two fire places. I loved that there were two separate living rooms with a fireplace each. That way some people can hang out in one and the others can still get some peace and quiet at the other. Marjorie was always checking in via text message making sure we had everything we needed. And we unfortunately had to switch dates due to an unforeseeable incident in our family, and Marjorie was very accommodating and flexible about it. The only down side was that we had to change dates and go during the snow so we couldn’t really enjoy any outdoors, although the kids had a good time in the playground and making snow angels! Love the spacious master bed room with cable, the kids enjoyed watching movies on the king bed, while the parents got some well deserved relaxEd time :) And my husband LOVED the fact that each room had their own thermostat, so people can adjust according to their liking. Wish we could of been able to enjoy the wrap around balcony in warm weather, but either way we were all very pleased with everything. There was one night where we we didn’t get any more hot water, the kids wanted to use soak tub again so we had to wait a few hours, but I think it was because we were running the dishwasher washer and kids were taking turn taking baths. Would definitely go here again in a heart beat! ♥️
Great place to stay. Love the open space in the kitchen and the play room.
So glad your group enjoyed our home! Come again any time!!
So many things to do at our home, you never need to leave. Pool table, board games, books, croquet, basketball, boating, tubing, biking, hiking, large screen tv, cooking. But, we're also less than 30 minutes from so many towns and restaurants. Grand Casino for gambling, Ruttgers for finer dining and golf is less than 10 minutes, Green Lantern Bar and Grill is less than 5 minutes-they have a pool table also. Brainerd and Baxter are 20 minutes and have anything else....mini golf, restaurants, shopping.
