About Jenny VanCanneyt

I grew up in Forest Lake and have traveled the world and still am happy to call Forest Lake home. It seems we have a little bit of everything, if not right here, then very close by. Making this a great place to live as well as visit.

Jenny VanCanneyt purchased this house in 2007

Why Jenny VanCanneyt chose Minnesota

Rendezvous (as we have named the house) has a special undeniable charm from the minute you walk through the door. Whether it's your first visit or your 12th visit, as one guest puts it 'we are coming home' every time she makes her reservation.

What makes this house unique

1912 built craftsman home. They don't make them like this anymore.

Wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Communication was fantastic with the owner. The house is incredibly well stocked with games, ever kitchen item you could ever need, coffee and teas, and plenty of extra linens. It was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. There is a beach and restaurants very close. We would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thanks so much!!

Fun family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the house, especially sharing our vacation pictures with the projector and big screen! Jenny was always there if we had questions. The big deck was our gathering spot. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was very well-equipped.

wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here while in town for a family wedding. With 2 small children it was far better than a hotel/motel. The house was spotless and lovingly restored, full of charm and everything we needed for our stay. We walked down to the beach and enjoyed watching the boats on the lake. The consignment shop was a delight to shop at. We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Norman Quacks, we recommend the cocoanut shrimp.

Thank you Jenny and mom for a memorable stay.
