  • 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!"

  • Excellent Summer Choice!!

    "We rented this cabin for a mini college reunion, and had a larger group of 13 adults stay for 3 nights in June. This place is nice and SPACIOUS; we never felt crowded! The master bedroom as room for an air mattress (if needed) and the sun room has 2 single beds plus extra room for an air mattress as well. Hannah really goes out of her way to make sure everything you would need is stocked. The kitchen was full of pots/pans/flatware, etc. There are lawn chairs, floating toys, kayaks, towels, a nice large yard, and excellent sunset views from the fire pit. The 2 refrigerators helped keep all our food and beer cold. Lower South Long Lake was fun to cruise on, and we caught Walleye, Pike, Bass, and Panfish. There were strong storms that came one afternoon, and we were limited to the confines of the cabin. Hannah had plenty of indoor accommodates as well. I will say that the Super Nintendo was a HUGE hit with our group... brought us back to our 90's childhoods. Assuming our group doesn't grow in size, we will definitely be coming back!"
