Twelve women from church thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home. We thought it was especially thoughtful of you to have a large dining room table that seats 12 and was perfect for our group. We enjoyed 2 days of hiking, lots of laughter, sunshine, game playing and wisdom swapping. We are GLOW(God Loving Outdoor Women)
Our experience with this home was fantastic. Not only was the home in great shape, it offered a beautiful view that was wonderful to wake up to each morning. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a weekend getaway up on the North Shore.
A group of 12 friends shared this house for a long weekend. It is fantastic! Comfy beds, lots of things to do, and very clean. We all had a great time and hope to come back next year. The only thing that would be nice is to have some newer cookware and bakeware in the kitchen. We cooked all our meals and with 12 people, it would have been nice to have a bigger frying pan and we also had to go out and buy some tinfoil pans. But all in all, great house!!! Thank you!
This is our 6th time staying here and we wouldn't have it any other way. Greg has very clean and very updated homes. Will be back again without a doubt. Thanks again Greg. 1st class all the way.
We had a fantastic week at this wonderfully clean and comfortable cabin home! It had everything we needed for our family group of 9! We especially appreciated the lower level for our teenage children who enjoyed the pool table and hockey table!! The kids also enjoyed exploring the creek area behind the cabin which was beautiful. The kitchen is very spacious and so are the bedrooms! The lower level bedrooms accommodated the 5 kids well (3 teen boys and 2 tween girls) and they loved the movie room too!
This cabin is in the perfect location to go to Lutsen Mountain or Grand Marais and really close to many state parks and waterfalls!! We enjoyed days out exploring and nights watching the Olympics and campfires. The furniture including the beds was extremely comfortable! It was great to have access to the washing machines too!
Our only recommendation is for guests to bring a small fan for the lower level bedrooms if you are there in the summer. We had ours along and it helped move the air in the lower level rooms at night. There were plenty of blankets and pillows and again it was great to be able to do loads of laundry to wash towels. Otherwise it was super comfortable and we are hoping to go back again next August! Thank you to the Amundson’s for sharing their beautiful cabin with us. We took great care of it.
The description of the cabin was spot on. Great customer service...this was easier than booking a hotel room. The Bristol Family
Cabin was perfect for our large group. Lots of beds and bathrooms and with 10 guys it was necessary. Yard could use some work the grass wasn't cut and some of the chairs were broken but all in all a great yard for games and the fire pit was awesome. Kitchen was huge and the ice maker came in handy. Tv channel selection was very limited but the wearer was so nice it didn't become an issue. Would recommend this place to anyone.
Our extended family group loved this property. Tons of space, perfect layout, lovely setting with privacy and views. One of the few places we have stayed that actually could comfortably accommodate a large group, allowing all of us to sit together at a table or in the living room. Kitchen was exceptional. Location was very convenient, in the middle of the north shore: we went both north and south to attractions. The kids had lots of fun with the games and exploring the stream and waterfall, and making smores.
