  • Great Cabin For Summer Vacation

    "Cabin is very nice inside. Plenty of space in the basement for kids to sleep and play. Main floor has a comfortable living room and kitchen had everything we needed. Nice views from the deck towards the lake. The beach was a big hit with the kids because the water was pretty warm due to the lake not being a big lake and we rented in August, so it was nice to have water temps peaking as well. The fire pit had plenty of available firewood. There was foosball/air hockey table in the basement that the kids enjoyed playing with. We had fun in the water in the canoe and paddle boat. What we liked: - Great swimming beach and fishing dock - Nice, clean cabin and cabin layout - Quiet, peaceful neighborhood What we didn't like: - Cabin is on a pretty steep slope and no large flat-ground area for yard games (croquet, badminton, bocce) - No larger local stores for groceries. We had to drive about 40 minutes into Hayward to get to a larger grocery store Overall, we would recommend this property and had a great stay, but it wasn't perfect for us - thus, why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5."

  • Everything you could ask for and more!

    "Our family has been vacationing here for the last four years. We have never had an issue or complaint. The house is exactly as pictured and described. It is always clean, ready, stocked with anything we may need, and has plenty of room. I can't say enough about the hosts. They are caring, friendly, and available if needed. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay. The grandchildren love swimming on the raft, fishing off the pier, kayaking, and paddle boating. The lake is never real crowded making it ideal for water sports. Taking the pontoon for a ride is always enjoyable and typically means a trip to Dairy Queen and a stop at the light house for a swim. Scenic parks with waterfalls, Hayward, and Duluth are all close. We've made memories here that will last a lifetime. We just returned and are already making plans for next summer's stay. Can't wait!"

  • perfect for our purposes!

    "The Whalen's were very kind, prompt and accommodating. We were in town for a wedding, and due to it being bear season and the size of the town, there were not many hotels in the area for us to stay at. So myself, and my immediate family stayed at the cabin. We mostly slept there, as we are the immediate family and of course were busy with wedding stuff, but there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep, hang out, and the setting (woods, lake) were beautiful. The description of the property was accurate, we had a little hard time getting our GPS to find the exact address, but were able to find it better using the "Deer trail lodge" address. Typical for a cabin in the woods, there were spider webs, and spiders, for most this is probably not a huge deal, I just have a huge fear of spiders! Ha, ha, I kept my eyes out and my family helped kill them as I pointed them out (about 9 in 3 days). Because we are from pretty far away, our phone service was not great, so when I wanted to re-look up/remember the instructions for leaving I had a hard time connecting. I should have perhaps printed them before hand and brought a paper copy as I did not see free Wi-Fi available. (I saw in previous comments that the cost was unreasonable to maintain it, totally understanding). There isn't always a way to know if you will have service, so I will take a note in the future to print off this type of stuff, and if you could perhaps post/write something about this, it may help others! My son wanted to watch one of his DVD's but the DVD on the player upstairs was missing the RCA cables. we used the cables from the play room in the basement and were able to get it to work. also the buttons on the actual DVD player did not work, but luckily there was a remote! so we just used that! The Whalen's allowed me to check in a little early to drop things off prior to going and helping with wedding stuff (since I was traveling so far), that was greatly appreciated. I would recommend this property to others, and I felt the cost was reasonable. We talked about coming back in the future to bring the family together at a time where we have more time to enjoy the cabin and the pontoon boat (we didn't get to even go down and see it as we were so busy!!) We had our rehearsal dinner at The Spot Supper Club. The food was delicious! (prime rib!) Thank you for everything!"

  • Getaway : return trip

    "Went last year in august- came home and Immediately booked 2 weeks this august. We just returned. Love the central location to Duluth- Apostle island seashore, Ashland and with a little streach: Bayfield. The cabin is quite remote, but their are several other cabins on the other side of the river in sight, and canoeists passing by. Wifi is very good. We watched the olympics nightly- reception was great. Last year we never really turned on the TV. Water is pristeen clean 63 to 65 degrees. Canoeing is great. The best canoe needs some TLC soon. We mentioned it to the caretaker and would bet that it will be attended to timely. The semi- dated cabin is really clean, and the caretaker maintains it well. Very peacefull setting. Kitchen and whole property is very well equipped. We were there for the last day of the meteor shower- Cloudy night- otherwise we would have had a nice show. If we don't spend our next summer vacation canoe camping the Namekagan or Fambeau, we will probably return again. Two weeks was so much nicer than one."
