"Mu husband, our 3 kids, and I rented this cabin last month for a family getaway before summer ended and school began. It was such a great experience and we had so much fun! The cabin and grounds are beautiful, updated, and very clean and well-kept, and the owners are very accommodating and responsive. Even the beach area and lake water were amazingly clean. The cabin accommodated our family of 5 well, but could certainly house several more if we had a bigger group. The back bedroom with the loft was perfect for our two boys (ages 9 and 10). To them it was like a fort! Our daughter (10 months) slept in her pack-n-play in the master bedroom with us. The view over the lake from the master bedroom is amazing! Because the cabin is high up on a hill and the bedroom is on the second floor, you really get a stunning bird's-eye view. Great sunrises! The cabin was fully-supplied with everything we needed, including kitchen/cooking utensils and dishes, bath and beach towels, sheets/pillows/blankets, toilet paper/kleenex, bug spray, charcoal for the grill, etc. It really felt like home! Highlights of the trip for our boys were swimming, the kayaks, the paddle boat, and ping pong table, along with nightly campfires in the fire pit with s'mores. We also rented a jet ski with a tube and a wakeboard for a couple of days. There is a Wal-Mart Superstore a few miles away, which is where we got all of our groceries and a few other items we forgot to pack. We spent an afternoon exploring downtown Park Rapids - such a cute, "up north" little town with several shops and a couple of candy shops with homemade fudge. We also drove up to Bemidji one day to see the famous Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, and visited the Mississippi headwaters and Lake Itasca. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our trip. We definitely hope to come back for another summer vacation sometime soon!"
