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.

Pretty great place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The owners were very responsive when we text with questions. Plenty of beds without feeling crowded. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to create a meal! LOTS of linens & towels which is fabulous. Only downside, no washing machine, though there is a laundromat within easy walking distance.

We had a fantastic stay at the house. We were there for Thanksgiving. I have also rented this home at an earlier time. The house is fully loaded with everything you might need. The owner Jenny is great to work with. I give our stay a five star rating.

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.
