About Dan

My wife and I love the idea of going to the lake - being near the waters-edge brings a calm serenity to our busy lives. We would like to share this experience with other families that share our values

Dan purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dan chose Minnesota

In a nut shell.....Pokegama Lake offers everything!! Clean water, sandy beaches, golf, unlimited boating. It is close to many of today's amenities yet offers privacy that most people are looking for.

What makes this cabin unique

(3) restaurants that you can boat to; multiple islands with sandy beaches; close to town; VERY private!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for the wonderful rental. We had a glorious time last week. Everyone that stopped by also loved the property. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we would like to return next year over the 4th of July.

Great views and good fishing!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great week at the cabin with early morning sunrises and camp fires with lake views. Boating to eat out and fishing was great. A fun time. The cabin owners met us and we so enjoyed the laughs we shared.

Gorgeous cabin with breathtaking views of beautiful Pokegama Lake! Best part of our summer!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time at this cabin! The setting is absolutely perfect! Huge yard, great little beach and an excellent location on Pokegama Lake, straight across from the golf course and Nesbit/Drumbeater Islands. The cabin was spacious, very clean, and neatly decorated. The owners met us at the property and showed us around. They were so nice and welcoming! I lived in Grand Rapids for some time and have visited several times since, but this was by far my most enjoyable experience there. So much to do and see in the area. I highly recommend this property for your next family vacation or getaway!

so relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Terrific location on a great lake! We would definitely return.

Pros - about a 15 minute drive to town; great windows that overlook the lake; great location on lake; use of kayaks; use of docks; very comfortable

Cons - we wish we would have known we could not use the owner's pontoon ahead of time; wolf's den could use a television

Great Lake House! Great Owners!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week at this house on Pokegama for vacation and visiting family. The owners did a great job renovating with updates galore. The house is only a few steps away from the lake, no hills or stairs to climb with gorgeous views. The yard is clean and manicured with a great fire pit for the cool evenings and marshmallow roasting. The owner was super nice and even helped us find a pontoon boat to rent for the week. He was available anytime for questions. The lake is clean and not real crowded. The fishing is great and listening to the loons is a sound we will always treasure. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay on Pokegama. I know we will be back the next time we make the trip up to Minnesota from Georgia.

Best summer vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there for a week during summer vacation in 2015. The beautiful wall of windows looking over the lake made a great place for enjoying the morning coffee :) The cabin was clean, spacious yet cozy, and the updated kitchen made it easy for feeding many mouths! We went kayaking around the lake, which is GORGEOUS, and there's a bar just a boat ride away called Zorbaz where we played volleyball, ate pizza, and held shuffleboard tournaments. We all had so much fun, and we can't wait to go back next year!

A Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to bring our 2 year old son "up north" and get away from the city. We found this lake home on Pokegama and it looked great. The home was even better when we arrived. It was very comfortable and clean with a great view, right on the lake with a dock and pontoon (extra but worth it). I took my son out fishing for the first time and he had a blast. Grilling on the beach was a highlight also. All in all it was a wonderful weekend with many firsts for my family and we will be looking to head back next year.
