Wonderful Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home on beautiful Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood, MN a number of times. The house is always clean and is well furnished and very functional. It is in a very quiet area. The new picnic table is a great upgrade and we ate out there most evenings. We also enjoyed the gas grill. The sunsets from the deck or from the dock are gorgeous! We were fortunate that the lake was very calm for us this year and allowed the young adults (and older adults!) some quality time on the paddleboards we brought with us. The lake is very clean and was perfect temp this year for water sports. Fishing off the dock was a little slow at times but in the evenings we had great luck - caught Sunnies, Bass and Northern. We did have one day of rain and the big patio doors allowed us to enjoy the rain and the cool day while we played card and board games in the house. Five STARS from us! Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Great property & lake

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned veterans of the "MN lake cabin family vacation" and this was one of our better experiences. Lake Minnewaska is BIG but lovely. It is very clear and shallow along the shore so fishing off the dock was not great but we were able to catch plenty out on the boat. The cabin layout worked well for our multi-generational group (teens through 70s) and everything was clean/well-maintained. Owners were very responsive when we had a question. Dock, lift and small beach area were perfect for our needs and we were able to do a bonfire several nights. We enjoyed outings to both Water's Edge in Starbuck and Lakeside in Glenwood. Recommend the former for true local ambiance and much better service. Also hiked at the state park nearby but must say the bugs were thick! No complaints and all in all a wonderful stay. Thanks Brenda and Tom!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for our annual trip back to MN, where I grew up but haven't lived in over 20 years. And this was absolutely perfect. The home is clean, has everything you need (and more), and the beach area is spectacular. The sand just off the dock was perfect and the depth of the water great for small kids and our entire family to enjoy. The property is spacious and welcoming, great for a large family get together and had plenty of seating.

Brenda has done an absolutely spectacular job of making sure this place is exactly what you envision when you think of a week away at the lake. We will be coming back!!!

Lake Home on Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood

  • 5 of 5

The home is right on the lake with fantastic views, and you can even hear the waves when you sleep in the master bedroom overlooking the lake. Everything was clean, plenty of supplies, and a great shower. The home has huge windows and French doors that make it open and bright. We biked on the state trail that goes from Villard to Glenwood past Lake Amelia and Villard Lake, and the new bike trail at Glendalough State Park around Molly Stark Lake and Annie Battle Lake. Both trails are paved and scenic.

We enjoyed hiking at the ski hill at the park right in Glenwood. We had a wonderful time, and hope to return to your lovely lake home. Thank you for making it available.

Fishing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at the Monte Beach house in the past and this year was just as nice as all the others. Nice roomy bedrooms. Kitchen is stocked really well. Lots of toys, games, puzzles and movies. Great deck to watch the sunset. We had really hot weather so fishing off the dock was poor but in the past it's been great. Minnewaska is a great fishing lake...we did catch 2 walleye and a number of big bass and big sunnies out in the lake. Love the fact that there is a boat lift. The owners are wonderful to work with....totally smooth transaction and always very accommodating. All in all a great vacation. Thanks for sharing your house with us!
