  • Nice place for a big group

    "The house was great - nice and big. We were a group of 12 women in our 30's, meeting for a reunion over Labor Day. Everybody has moved across the country by now, so we decided to meet for a weekend up north. There was plenty of room in the kitchen area for everybody to hang out and socialize while we made food together. The place is also pretty close to lots to do - within 20 minutes of a variety of choices (breweries, riding stable, town). It was a cooler weekend, so we didn't all go swimming, but note that it's weedy close to the dock (just as you'd expect though, most MN lakes have conservation ordinances preventing people from making beaches). It was nice though - the water was refreshing. Plus, we didn't run out of hot water even though we had that many women! I suppose the one knock I've got about it is the rental process. Sherry is very sweet, and helpful with lots of ideas to do around town or on the lake, but there were clearly some trust issues there. She just kept asking what we were going to be doing the whole time, and insisted on coming by to check us in even after I told her once we got there that it was a straightforward place, it looked great, no questions. She ended up coming to the house on Saturday afternoon (well into our stay) and the check in process was her showing me the stuff that's already clearly written on the contract, check-in document, and notes around the house. It came across as nosy, and it was a disruption to our vacation, so I'm sour about that. I assume she just wants to make sure people are having fun, but she inserted herself too strongly into our private time. She asked why we were getting together, what we were celebrating, what we were planning on doing.. a bunch of times. I assume she wasn't satisfied by my answers. She kept asking, which is where that snoopy feeling came from. It was like she wanted every detail, like she was trying to approve our plans or something strange. To end on a good note though, we all had a great time. We stuck around the house for the most part, made our own food, and really got a chance to relax and have fun by the lake. The open format of the kitchen/dining/living area was really nice. One night we went over to Zorbaz, which is the perfect raucous townie bar/restaurant you could ask for. Food, lots of space, impressive selection of local and MN beer on tap. Overall we enjoyed ourselves on our stay!"

  • Second visit even better than first!

    "This was our second visit to this amazing property and it was even better than the first. The weather was beautiful. There's so much to do with boating, tubing, skiing, fishing, board games, reading, sand castles.....we see no reason to leave the property the entire week! My kids caught tons of fish off the dock again this year with cane poles and a can of corn. We brought our boat and easily tied it to the dock. The lake is usually very quiet and perfect for skiing and tubing. Thanks again for a wonderful week of memories!"

  • Beautiful cabin, Relaxing vacation!

    "One of the best cabins we've rented via VRBO, by far! Beautiful, clean cabin, with all everything you could ever need (and beautifully decorated). Very private lot and nice dock for our boat. Nice sized lake, too, even though we didn't have great fishing, it was fun regardless! We enjoyed a few fires alongside the lake a couple of evenings and watched the loons, and the beautiful sunsets. The Brainerd area has so much to offer, too, for people of all ages. A great way to spend a vacation! We hope to return another year!! Maureen & Keith Z Clinton, IA"

  • Fantastic Getaway

    "Everything about this property was as advertised! Quiet, clean, comfortable and everything you could want from a Minnesota lake cabin. All the comforts of home in a private setting surrounded by nature. Easy access to the lake, close to town, and the owners did a great job explaining everything. Also enjoyed the campfire area and the call of the Loons during some beautiful sunsets. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and looking forward to returning."
