"My three siblings and I, our spouses and kids, and our parents gathered here to celebrate our parents' 70th birthdays. We had 10 adults, two toddlers, 3 babies, and a small dog, and did not feel crowded. There was enough room to gather for big family meals and there were enough different spaces to spread out for separate activities. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of knives, appliances, pots and dishes.
The lake access includes a small sandy beach which was great for the toddlers. The path to the lake is a bit steep--not accessible for all, but the large deck and large windows of the living room offer expansive views to the lake--and we were lucky to have a stunning sunset during our stay.
The master bedroom is large and easily fit two travel cribs with room to spare. The other rooms were a little tight with the travel cribs, but it worked fine.
The large dining table had room for us all, for meals and games, and was the center of our family gathering.
Pine City was close enough to the Twin Cities to make an easy trip but far enough to feel like you were away.
We would definitely return!
A side note: our toddler woke with a croupy cough one morning and we took him to the Pine City urgent care clinic. It was close and convenient and we received excellent care."
