Great Experience

September 2, 2008

The cabin and the entire atmosphere were well above what we expected. The fishing was exceptional, from the bass, perch and northerns to the large panfish. And of course the occasional bull head. The loons were present everyday swimming and fishing. The peace and quiet of the location was very welcome and created a great atmosphere. It was as if we were the only ones on the lake. For the kids it was great because of the beach and the clear water. You can actually see the bottom of the lake at almost any point, as the water is crystal clear. "Bear" the owner, went above and beyond to make sure everything we needed was there and Brandy came by to check on us from time to time. We would highly recommend this to any one.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We have had a crazy year with the birth of our daughter etc. "Cabin at the Lake" was the perfect antidote for our family to get away and enjoy each other, with nothing else that needs attention right away. Last night after dinner my daughter said "mom, I'm as happy as I could be". She has had such a wonderful time, exploring, playing with the fish, she even prayed for them that they are happy once she leaves. Thank you for helping us to make such memories. Stephanie - Bataria, IL

I can't say enough good things about this place (both cabin and lake). This was our second year here and it afforded as much enjoyment as our last. Being the only people around provided us with an environment where we could truly relax and drink up the experience completely. We will definitely be back next year. P.S. I also proposed to my girlfriend of four years! Maybe our honeymoon will be here! P.S.S. She said Yes! Amenda - Lincoln, NE

The cabin was beyond our expectations. It was spotless, without a grain of sand. We took care of that immediately. We were amazed at all the thoughtful conveniences left for us to use. What a treat! We fished. We ate many meals using the camp fire and the grill. The clothesline had towels drying constantly. The view from the porch was admired and enjoyed by each of us. The sunsets are memory keepers! Our weeks is about over. It has gone much too fast. We enjoyed feeding the fish at the dock, visits from Brandy, and our evening boat/fishing outings. The paddle boat was finally mastered by Karen and me. It did take a few minutes to get out of circling constantly. What fun we've had! What memories! What great Minnesota weather! Kathy - Des Moine, Iowa

Enjoyed the quiet and are going to miss it once we're back home! My boys will miss feeding the fish and swimming every day! The weather was beautiful except a day or two! Thank you so much for sharing "The Cabin at the Lake" with us this week. Riley - Twin Cities

Our 1st experience of a Cabin for a week! Awesome. Everything we needed was already provided. We brought 2 mini-pins along! They enjoyed it outside and the water. Thank you for everything. Carol - Oshkosh, WI

I found this cabin on the internet and what a find. We have visited Minnesota twice before, but the "Cabin at the Lake" is the best. What a great cabin and location! The hosts were wonderful. The cabin was so clean (the first cabin I didn't have to "spot clean" when I arrived.) My grandson had so much fun. This vacation was for them and of course the guys and their fishing. Every day they caught fish weather at this lake or one of the many others they visited. Thanks for everything - Nancy - Chaska, MN

This was our first cabin vacation and will definitely no be our last! We had a blast up here and hope to return. The cabin was perfect and the hospitality was great! The sunsets and overall atmosphere of "The Cabin at the Lake" was just what we were looking for! Thank you for welcoming us here Jessica - Onalasker, WI

I caught a huge bass with the kiddy pole and had to drag it in to shore because the pole broke! It was funny. I haven't ever caught such a big fish! Warren loved plying on the sun porch and exploring the land. He didn't know what to think of the chickens. Rocky loved playing with Roxy! *Saw Great Sunsets* Thank you for such a peaceful fun place!!! Donielle - St. Paul, MN

Very nice cabin, definitely would recommend, The gift basket, eggs and note made us feel very welcomed. The movies were a great addition for the times it was rainy. Everything was set up perfectly and at our fingertips - no need to ask for anything! We plan to return. Thanks so much! Natalie - St. Paul, MN

We had a great time! It was wonderful just to sit back and relax with the family. The cabin had everything we needed and the owners were so attentive to ensuring that we had a great weekend. I caught the biggest fish that I ever have and had so much fun listening to the sounds of nature. Thank you for EVERYTHING! LaShaun - Mounds View, MN

I just want to say this place is the best - to relax it's so private and peaceful! I totally recommend it! And the owners are wonderful!!!!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE this place!!!! Shawn - McLeod county

Cabin at the lake is the best! The cabin is really nice and well taken care of, and there is lots of room outside for frisbee, bocce ball and taking walks. Because there are only a few houses & cabins on the lake, we pretty much had the lake to ourselves for the whole week. Angele and Bear were very helpful and wonderful hosts. We had the greatest vacation there and can't wait to return this summer - our dogs loved it too! Amanda - St. Paul
