We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying here. Even though the place could use a few updates, it certainly served it's purpose. Lots of room to stay, two bathrooms, two showers (with one outside which is truly an experience everyone should try out). We had a total of 19 family members enjoy this week. Lots of steps to the lake, however, as good as we were eating, we needed the exercise! I would book this place again now that I know the ins and outs of it.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

Pros to this place are it has a beautiful location-the best I dare say, large sandy swimming area, beautiful lake, great fishing, awesome electric boatlift, great dock, big play yard, ping-pong table, basketball hoop, central air in the house, lots of space for kids to play. The kids absolutely loved it! The service was outstanding here. We had quite a few things that needed repair or attention and Linda and Ricki and crew were on it immediately, replacing the nonworking grill with a brand new one, fixing the stove and the toilet, bringing more chairs, and repairing the deck! It's also well-stocked with essentials. Cons to this place are very steep stairs in the house, dangerous and treacherous stairs on the way down to the dock with loose cinderblocks and loose handrail, small box a/c in the loft, very small or almost no eating space inside, uncomfortable beds except the king, deck needs repair on both front and backside of the house (which I believe they are doing next week) loose electrical plug-ins, only one indoor shower. Overall, this was an awesome house with a great location but the house itself could use a lot of TLC. If you're looking for a place to stay to enjoy the outdoors, this is probably the place for you. If you are the type of family that likes to spend a lot of time inside, this might not work as well.

Fun and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had my family together for our annual week at a Minnesota lake. There were 19 of us there and there was plenty of room to spread out. We loved the location as well. We had a great time and would recommend it!

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Had everything the owner said it would, they were really easy and helpful to work with. Green Lake isn't secluded and this place isn't either. more of a developed lake with a town right there, rather than secluded northwoods. So if that's what you're looking for, it's great.
