About Don and Lisa Newhouse
Myself and My husband Don live in Bemidji, MN and are managing this property for my mother-in-law Bonita Newhouse who lives nearby just east of Menahga, MN. This home was built by my husbands grandfather and grandmother Willard and Ranolda Stonelake in 1959-60. they lived in the house and enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, gardening, birdwatching etc. The property also includes two additional rustic cabins that are rented seasonally to return visitors. This property has lots of family history and has been an important part of my husbands life as he typically spent every summer of his childhood staying with his grandparents in this house, fishing from the dock and exploring the lakes and woods in the area. In the winter months some of the best fishing on the lake has always been a short walk from the house out onto the lake in front of the cabin where numerous walleye and large northern pike, and crappies can be caught through the ice.
Don and Lisa Newhouse purchased this House in 1958

Very nice cabin
Great cabin for 2 families. Well stocked with everything we needed. Nice fishing and swimming off the dock. Would like to visit again.
A nice weekend at the lake
The property worked out great for our group to stay at the lake for a few days of fishing and boating and relaxing. The owners were great to work with and the place was clean, comfortable and well stocked - Thanks!👍
We had an absolute great weekend. This home is so clean and beautiful. So well kept, owners were so easy to work with and so accommodating. We would recommend this rental to everyone.
Tons of sleeping space. Lake is also really great, kids caught tons of small fish off the dock, which made this even more amazing.
My family was in the area for a family reunion and wanted a place to stay on the lake. We had a great time here.
Lisa was great made the process extremely easy.
perfect setting for our family
This was the perfect property to rent for our family. We loved the covered porch and firepit for gathering. The kitchen was completely stocked as well as the rest of the house. It was absolutely spotless everywhere inside and out. Communication and check in was great. You can tell the owners really care about making sure guests are comfortable and have everything they need. We hope to come back next summer!
Great for a quiet north woods vacation.
Don was very friendly, the area was beautiful the house was clean and comfortable. We were able to just have family time and not worry about the world for 1 week. Thank you!
