Beautiful cabin! Great fishing, nice lake, warm water. Very well furnished cabin! We’d love to stay again.
Wonderful cabin for a family vacation!
We had one of the best family vacations here we've ever had! The location is wonderful. It's very quiet with no neighbors to one side, and the rest of the people around the lake are very respectful. As others have mentioned, the photos do not do the cabin justice! It is well-appointed with all the amenities you need. We had no issues finding utensils, pots and pans, etc. The owners are very accessible and super kind and helpful. Mike made a couples trips over to help resolve a satellite issue, and while there, offered to set us up with fishing gear and a knee board. (My son was SUPER excited on both counts!)
We had the use of the pontoon for our stay as well, and had a blast swimming off the boat and tubing. The water off the end of the dock is fairly deep for small kids or if you're not a confident swimmer. However, we made use of our own floaties we brought from home and kept the little kids in life jackets. They thought it was great! The water is clean and with the lake being smaller and quiet, you can enjoy it safely without being worried you'll get run over by some crazy boaters or jet skiers.
We saw tons of loons, pelicans, and bald eagles (perfect for the 4th of July!). The fishing off the dock is incredible as well. We caught lots of crappies, sunnies, and a few walleye. We also enjoyed our daily visits by the cows in the pasture across the road.
This was the perfect place for our crew of 7 (3 adults, 4 kids). Our 3 boys loved the bunkhouse set-up, and the rest of us had our own rooms in the main cabin. Everything was super clean and well-kept, but not overly fussy. Very family friendly! You know you've found the right place when your kids ask before you even leave if you can come back next year! We hope to visit again!
Beautiful home on a quiet clean lake.
Great newly remodeled lake home and cute bunkhouse on clean quiet lake made our five days enjoyable, despite rainy mornings and a remote country setting. The pontoon was reliable and spacious. The steps to the lake were in good condition but railings might have been helpful. The canoe was awesome. The owners were responsive and helped us when we needed them. Definitely would choose this beautiful home again next year!
The perfect girls weekend for a big family!
The cabin is absolutely beautiful - amenities of a house but seclusion of a cabin. The photos definitely don’t do it justice.
We had a multiple generation group of women and everyone was happy with both the cabin & the location. The lake is quiet, except for all the loon activity! The owner was very helpful and everything was so clean. Highly recommend this cabin to anyone!
The house is very comfortable. . The stairs to upstairs are steep, I’m so glad I got the downstairs bedroom! The lake and yard are beautiful! We caught many fish. My grandson was overjoyed with his first catfish. My son caught a very nice walleye . I appreciated hour hosts, available but not intrusive. I’m glad we did this vacation.
Beautiful cabin with a great view. Very secluded. Owners were great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely rent this place again. Lots of things to do within a half hour. Once again this cabin is beautiful and spacious.
