"Our family booked a week vacation at this great cabin on Partridge Lake using the vrbo website. When we were researching places to stay, this looked like a great location. We did have some questions, and Jason was very happy to help us out, answering any and all questions right away. So we booked it for late July.
The location is fantastic, it's only 2 1/2 hours away from the Msp/St Paul metro area, you can get there quickly. You won't spend too much time getting there or home, more time for hanging out at the lake. But it is far enough away that you are out of the cities, and enjoying the lake life.
The cabin itself is very comfortable, we left right at home as soon as we walked in. Main floor has an open floor plan, so if you're hanging out in the dining area, living area, or kitchen, you can still chat with whoever is the other areas. From the cabin the view of the lake is fantastic. While we were there, from the living room alone, we saw a bald eagle land in a tree in the front yard (couple of times), 3 or 4 loons hanging out in the bay, and a deer across the bay getting a drink at the shoreline. Very quiet, we hardly knew anyone else was around during our stay. We did enjoy the CD selection and stereo while making and eating meals or playing games at night. The kitchen was used regularly, and we did grill out on the deck one night too.
We had the pontoon out for tubing with our kids, fishing too. The lake is almost completely surrounded by trees, most of the time (all of the time?) the water was very calm and smooth, perfect for tubing. We did fish for a couple of days too. The lake has a ton of pan fish that the kids caught easily. Also pulled in a nice sized bass too. Lots of fun for them as they were catching and releasing fish for hours.
We were very happy with our stay, had an extremely relaxing stay here. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a Minnesota getaway."
