Wonderful Retreat

We couldn't have chosen a nicer place to stay. The owners were so nice and understanding of our needs. We rented the "cabin" to house my family that came in from out of town for our wedding. They were all very impressed with the condition and size of the log home. I could go on and on, but words can't describe the comfort we enjoyed during our week stay.

Wonderful, peaceful and relaxing are proper adjectives for this property. I could sit all day on the pier or the porch mesmerized by the sight and sound of the waves rolling onto the shore. The fall colors were beautiful, and the nearby town provided great shopping and dining. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful week on Grindstone Lake

Elieen and Skip were wonderful hosts as we spent time in the quaint Birchwood cabin. Sleeping accommodations for 3 were great and the screened in porch a favorite. Steep steps to the dock below the cabin, although much easier access onto the main one a few steps away. Lake very shallow with nice sand; quiet during our week. Some good fishing but you have to be willing to work to find depth. Bring your own boat if you are able, although the row boat and canoe were plenty fun. Can't wait to book next year!

Cabin on Grindstone Lake

The cabin and lake were great! The cabin has plenty of room and feels like staying in the northwoods should. We had 11 people and everyone had plenty of room to relax and sleep at night. The only part, which is not a big deal is that the owners live on site (house next door). At times, I felt like they were watching and listening to us, but I'm sure they were just hanging out enjoying the weather and view as well. Overall, great place! I would stay here again.
