  • A great "loon" experience

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful home on Pickerel Bay. The view from the living room affords the opportunity to see beautiful sun rises and sunsets as well as loon and eagle watching. We woke up to loons every day and each evening we listened again as they called to each other to find their way "home". We saw a few eagles (or maybe it was the same one) over the course of our two week stay. Even watching the rain was enjoyable to us as we found it very relaxing. The water is so clear, we would sit on the dock and watch the fish. Hubby caught many bass, but the walleye seemed to stay in hiding. We ended up going to Pughole Lake and there he caught quite a few Northern Pike. We loved taking drives down the many dirt roads but found out that without 4-wheel drive it wouldn't be a good idea...and if the sign says "share the road" and there's a picture of a 4-wheeler, well, you may not want to venture down that road! lol We ate at Cedar Creek Grille and found the food wonderful, but mostly cooked at the cabin, either inside or on the gas grill. On rainy days we watched movies and took naps and did puzzles, but when we could, we were on the water! It was so nice having a dock as it would rain, then clear up and we could go for a paddle in the kayaks to watch the sun set...sigh...loved it! We paddled to Little Trout Lake one day and saw a Loon on her nest, then she dove into the water and we were able to see her swimming it was so clear. Another day we paddled to Trout Lake and we paddled to Bluewater Lake a couple of times. The water is a bluish green on Bluewater Lake and Little Trout...just like you're kayaking in an acquarium...can't say enough about it! We purchased wood from Greg up the road and had a bonfire one night and it got a little chilly another night so we actually had a fire in the fireplace, lol. All the accommodations were wonderful. I wonder, however, would you consider including the motor boat with the rental? :)"

  • Wonderful lake cabin experience

    "One of the most enjoyable weeks at the lake that we have had in a long time and we've been doing this for many years. The cabin was clean and the windows and deck provided a wonderful view of the lake which is very important to us. We had everything we could need with the very minor exception of some ice cube trays. The grass and area around the cabin was neatly maintained and the fire pit a relaxing evening experience, especially so with the pleasant couple next door in the Timberdoodle. Turtle Lake is beautiful and I am still surprised at how quiet it was. Owners were extremely accommodating with near immediate response to the questions I had. If I could improve on one thing it would be the dock. I brought my expensive fiberglass fishing boat and had to be extremely careful pulling alongside and tying up to it. I was relieved that we did not have any storms as it is exposed to the SW and trailering it would be a chore. We came to fish for smallmouth bass exclusively and my grandson and I had a blast catching them on light tackle. The MN DNR's special regulation to protect the smallies on Turtle is a real bonus. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable week and I'm already anticipating our next stay."

  • A breath of fresh air

    "Our whole family has been gushing about our week at Burrows Lake since we got home last month. Our time there was simply a breath of fresh air for all of us. Our children loved the freedom to run and frolic and fish and splash in the water. The lake bottom is sandy, but firm, and shockingly was still weedless in August! We loved kayaking on the calm still lake, and fishing from the dock (tons of fish of different sizes and types to be caught!). We were thrilled to pick our fill of ripe raspberries and blackberries as we walked the property. But perhaps the very best part was the distraction free, quiet, atmosphere. We were so thrilled to step out of our van upon arrival and listen closely and hear.....nothing! I know most people want to know the nitty-gritty when they are reading the reviews. I know I am always curious to know if a VRBO is clean and well appointed. This cabin had a beautiful layout, was very clean, and all beds and furniture were very comfortable. There were plenty of towels/dishes/etc and the hosts have thought of just about every detail to make it a very comfortable place to stay. Our favorite place in the house was the dining room with huge windows overlooking the lake--it's the perfect place to savor a cup of coffee in the early morning!"
