Everything was very efficient and nice and clean.

We had a great time and enjoyed the property. We really didn't like having to wash the sheets and towels. We had to leave the last load in the dryer because of a time commitment. Other than that we really like the place and location. we would recommend the place to friends.

Awesome cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our "girls getaway" weekend at this cabin. Jason was very easy to work with and the cabin was stocked with everything we needed. We will definitely look into renting this cabin again next year!

Stop searching and book this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented several vacation units and this owner is by far the easiest to deal with, very professional and friendly. I highly recommend renting this cabin. We have stayed at Bridges Bay several times in the lakefront condos. We decided to try a cabin this time and are glad we did. It was easily accessible and provided an attached garage, which made it nice for our bike storage. There were also bikes provided, along with an outdoor fire pit. This was the best equipped rental my family has stayed in. There was shampoo, detergent, dryer sheets, and even toothbrush kits with toothpaste and dental floss among many other essential items. Definitely look around the cabin before heading to the store. You can skip some of the stuff you usually have to purchase when renting a home. Bridges Bay is a great location when visiting the Lakes Region. We would not rent anywhere else. This time we did not visit the water park, but it is a nice option for young kids. Bracco has great food and a fun atmosphere although overpriced. However, the cabin rental is very reasonable for the area. You will not regret renting this one.

We stayed here again this year and I would echo the same statements that I made in my last review. I would only add that this place becomes even better the second time around, and the landlord even friendlier. It's remarkable that both are even possible as renting here is a breeze. Two thumbs up again and we will definitely be back.

Excellent Location and Accommodating Owners

  • 5 of 5

I will start and end by saying that I fully recommend this rental.

The owner is very friendly and easy to work with. He responded quickly whenever we had a question prior to our stay and made himself available to answer any questions during our stay. His instructions regarding check in and check were easy to understand and very reasonable. He also put together a binder full of information about the city and Bridges Bay Resort which proved to be incredibly helpful during our stay.

This cabin has a great location on East Lake Okoboji. Bracco restaurant provides an excellent place to eat or to have a quiet cocktail while watching the sun set over the lake. Access to the water park, pool and fitness center also proved to be extremely valuable. It is within walking distance to places like Arnold's Park (slightly more than a mile) and is conveniently located close to a paved bike trail. Also, there are plenty of cabs available if you require. There is also enough to do and see on site, so a person or family doesn't even really need to leave.

The cabin itself was incredibly comfortable. It's fashionably decorated and is easy to forget that it's only a rental. After a few days, we wished it was ours. We snapped out of that shortly thereafter when we realized that we could rent the place from time to time without having to worry about the mortgage, but the point is that it was the kind of place that enhanced a vacation and made you wish for more.

Bottom line, I would recommend this place and have already contacted the owner about renting it again for the same time next year.
