  • Park like and quiet

    "The property is well-maintained and equipped. Nestled in the trees and a few miles off the beaten path, it provides a pleasant seclusion and a beautiful change of scene while providing all the comforts of home. Highly recommend it. Will likely stay there again."

  • Eagle Lake turquoise water retreat--we've already booked for 2018!

    "WOW. Crystal Blue Retreat offered an amazing, relaxing week vacation to my family of 7 from Omaha, NE. We checked in 7/31 and stayed a wk. Scott was great about answering emails, getting us directions/lockbox code. Eagle Lake seems like a very quiet community, not a "party lake". Battle Lake (food/gas) is about 15 minutes away. The cabin is beautiful! The kitchen is perfect sized, with all the equipment (if you're a real coffee aficionado, I recommend perhaps bringing your own Mr. Coffee, as the Toastmaster was a bit glitchy for us--but we are coffee snobs!). The cupboards are stocked with everything you might need from home, all your dishes, pans, mixing bowls, etc... Some basics such as baking soda/tin foil were provided. There are kitchen handtowels/washcloths. Probably best of all--this cabin has a full sized washer and dryer (nicer than mine back home!). There were soap and dryer sheets, but we ended up buying our own, as we weren't sure if those were for our use. There is a bar top with stools, and a 6 person kitchen table. The French doors leading to the living room were great at night when some wanted to play games, and others wanted to read/watch a movie with some quiet. The master bedroom is large, with large double closets and an attached 3/4 bath. The second upstairs bedroom is small, with a full bed. If you're looking for a place to stay with mixed couples/singles, it was a little tricky figuring out sleeping arrangements. There are plenty of beds for sure, but not all of them are private. My husband and I snuggled into the full bed, my parents took the master with king. Downstairs is an open living room area with two twins, a bedroom with 2 queens and a twin, and another half-finished basement room with two more beds. Bonus-there's an extra smaller refrigerator in the basement--perfect for extra beverages. There is a freezer in the garage as well. The rooms were stocked with nightstands/dressers/Kleenex/lamps--everything you could think of! Bring towels. There is a picnic table, small charcoal grill, wooden swing, and plenty of Adirondack chairs, fire pit. Now for the best part--THE LAKE! We have stayed all over MN and this is the CLEANEST and CLEAREST water we've ever seen. I rarely swim outside of pools but I swam every day here. We saw 1 small fish--not a great fishing lake. The water off the dock is chest high and dive-able at the float--PERFECT depth. If you're a swimmer/"water snob" look no further!! BOOK NOW! :)"

  • Fabulous beach property!

    "Another jewel found on VRBO! We rented the ‘Getaway and the Loft’ from Shawn and Carmen for seven days this summer and had a fabulous vacation at a beautiful property. We slept 19 people comfortable the first three nights until some of the unfortunate ones had to return to work. The property is exactly as advertised. The beach, yard and lake exceeded our expectations. You will not find a better person or family to rent from! Very easy to work with and responsive to all of our needs! Shawn had great insights for us regarding local activities around Park Rapids and some good fishing tips. You can rent the Loft and Getaway together or separate, depending on the size of your group. Our group really enjoyed the yard games, canoes, swimming deck, fishing off the dock and at night the fire pit located lakeside! There was plenty of room at the dock for my 18’ Lund Tyee and we also rented the Pontoon for a couple days! If you’re looking for marble top counters and a massage parlor you’ll need to go somewhere else and pay a bunch more money. But if you want to have fun in a nice place and give a fair price to a good person, better call Shawn."
