Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Hackensack - Hackensack Family Reunion Home

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14-20)

Our Lake Home is located near Hackensack, MN and has many amenities for a reasonable price. The outdoor couple or family can enjoy hunting, fishing, water skiing, tubing, ice fishing, snowmobiling or just relaxing on the shores of Pleasant Lake and listen to the sounds of the northern loons.

There is a snowmobile trail 100 yards away from the Lake Home

Everything is ready for you when you arrive. The only things you need to bring are your clothes, food and beverages.

The Lake Home is right on the beach of Pleasent Lake. The lake is clean and full of Walleyes, Northerns, Bass and Pan Fish. You can fish off the dock or take a boat out. Leech Lake is 10 miles north of Hackensack if you are looking for a bigger lake to fish on.

Your fun filled day at our lake home could go something like this. Get up in the morning to the sound of the loons and the water rippling on the beach. Eat your breakfast and out to lake you go. You can start with some fishing in the morning on the calm morning lake. You can go in for some lunch and then bring out the boats, skies and tubes for a fun filled afternoon of 'playing' on the lake. After dinner, you can build a fire in the fire pit and socialize around the fire with your family and friends until your ready for bed.

Why Terry Peterson and Dale Schmidt chose Minnesota

We have been enjoying vacationing in Hackensack for 14 years. We have brought up our children, siblings, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren for years and would now like others to enjoy the 'up north' experience we have enjoyed with our family and friends for so many years.

3 generation vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at this lake home. Everyone (12 of us, ages 3-69) fished and swam and tubed and just enjoyed our time together.

The fishing was great! Bass, crappies, walleye and sunnies. Our youngest granddaughter caught her first fish ever and a grandson caught his biggest crappie ever, 12 inches! We enjoyed the beach and the shallow walk into the lake. The older kids loved the paddle boat and swimming dock. The house itself has lots of areas for the kids to explore and play in so it never seemed crowded. Great flat yard, lots of big trees for nice shade. Huge deck with 3 tables and lots of chairs. 3 refrigerators and the close town made suppers easy. If you have kids, don't miss the kids fishing contest in Hackensack. We saw deer, eagles and many loons. We are booking again for next year

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home and property are amazing!!! We spend a week here on our annual family vacation, and will for sure be booking it again next year. We had 15 people staying in the house aging from 4 to 85! The owner was great to work with, answered all the questions I had about the home. I had my 2 kids with me ages 4 and 6, they both wanted to stay longer than our week (they even asked if we could stay forever!) The beach was great for the kids to play on and the water was good for swimming. The pontoon was is wonderful condition and we used it often. The fishing was great, my 6 year old son caught a Northern and was so excited! The yard was perfect for our day of playing yard games!

Excellent Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (75-7yrs old) has stayed here 1 week for the past 3 summers. The owners have been a pleasure to work with and the place is more than you could ask for! The home has always been clean and the yard maintained. There is definitely room for a large a group without feeling crowded and 2 bathrooms is always a plus! The lake is great for fishing anytime of the year. Would definitely rent again if our group grows in size!

Hunting Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! Our other cabin plans fell through for 13 people so we were scrambling trying to find a place to stay for both hunting weekends. The cabin was clean and had plenty of room and everything we needed and then some! Plenty of places for everyone to sleep and we used to garage as a dressing room for our hunting gear. Can't wait to be back for next year!

2014 Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the cabin, privacy and the pontoon immensely! In fact we loved it so much we changed our plans to go to South Carolina next summer and have already re booked the cabin! The cabin is very spacious and just what we expected from a cabin on a lake! The deck, yard and private beach were perfect for the kids to play! While I am disappointed the rates increased, the memories are worth it! Fishing was great too! Tons of Rock Bass, Blue Gill and a couple of Northerns and a 2 pound bass! Thanks for the memories we made and the ones we were able to relive from our childhood on Pleasant Lake!

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here and the house was perfect for our family. We will definitely be back next year! Terry was wonderful to work with and very prompt in getting back to us with any questions we had. This has been by far the best vacation I have had with my parents and children and am looking forward to many more. Pleasant Lake is a great lake to fish on. The first day we were there we had enough fish to have a fish meal that evening for the seven of us with plenty left over. My dad says you can catch fish anytime of the year on this lake.The flat level yard is perfect for outside activities and is nice for going to the beach or docks with only a few small concrete steps. My 85yr old grandmother had no problem getting to the pontoon when her and my aunt came to visit. The public boat launch is so close you can walk to it from the house. The kids enjoyed the paddleboat and laying out on the swim platform. We went to the casino in walker for some adult time.This home has everything you need and more! I had brought many kitchen items from home and the only things I used were a 9x13 glass dish for a breakfast egg bake and my crockpot. There was more than enough towels, beds, blankets and pillows. Having a second refrigerator in the garage was great to have. The renters previous to us had left the house a mess and housekeeping had to clean up more than just the normal to prepare it for us. If you choose to rent this home PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL and treat this as you would your own home! A big thank you to terry and her family who have graciously offered their home for others to enjoy!
