"We just arrived home from our second stay at the Gerends lake cabin on Hayden Lake. And once again...too wonderful for words. We spent many hours just lounging on the huge wrap around deck, barbecuing, entertaining friends, and soaking in the truly incredible lake view spread out in front of us. In fact, before we left, we both just stood on the deck, silent, I know both thinking the same thing: "I don't want to forget this view." It's a truly rejuvenating spot, and you just can't visit without feeling wonderful. There are even MORE water toys than our last visit, which I didn't think was possible! We both used the SUP boards, the canoe, the Seacycle, the paddle boat, and misc. other items that were available. I don't think we could have worked our way through all of the water toys in a week's time! They have a wonderful little sandy beach cove, with stairs to access it, and we loved throwing floaties for our dog from there. There's also a huge rock to jump from, and just so many great things to do, including hiking up behind the cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits with Jeanne, the onsite manager. She is wonderful! She checked in on occasion to make sure we had everything we needed, which was so nice. The home is so well stocked, it's almost unbelievable. Right down to clips to hold on the outdoor tablecloth! My husband asked if I brought those. I said "Nope! The Gerends have thought of everything!" The home is clean, comfortable, and has everything you will need for your stay. Should you need to run into town, it's less than 20 minutes away. This cabin is wonderful! We can't recommend it highly enough. We look forward to our next visit!"
