Why The Owner chose Minnesota

Our cabin is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We are a family-oriented vacation rental. You can have a personal vacation experience that you would not be able to find at a busy resort or multi-unit complex. Lake Minnewaska is truly one of the best lakes around, and very few have ever compared to it for me. Crystal clear water, excellent swimming, fishing and amazing sunsets are just a few of its' many attributes. A large yard, 100 ft of lakeshore, numerous maple and birch trees create a great sense of privacy and beauty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We very much enjoyed our stay and the house was great. There were 7 of us and there was enough room and beds for all of us. In fact, your house is very nice. To sum-up our stay, it was a very enjoyable few days.

Home/cabin is very comfortable. With all the windows, great view of the lake day and night! Plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 children. We would have been able to add more guests if needed, because very spacious. Kitchen was well equipped, even a double oven, a fridge upstairs and downstairs. A/C was available to use and we did as needed. Washer and dryer available to use, which worked well. Beach area little with weeds which we were able to rake away. Water was clear and warm. Fishing off the dock, some little pan and bass. Convenient for the 6 & 2 year old. Able to walk out quite far and water not deep. There is a beach area across the lake which we took our SeaDoos to get to and just over a mile to get to by vehicle. Fire pit was a feature we enjoyed with plenty of seating. Very quiet neighborhood, lake is large and quiet as well. Grass area to play games, garage to park in if wanted.

Stephen responded quickly to text messages when we arrived and when we departed. Responded per email within reasonable time.

Grocery and liquor and Dollar Store all close by in Starbuck. We were able to get work done on SeaDoos in Glenwood Monday afternoon. Had coffee at the Coffee Studio in Glenwood which was good and enjoyed by our daughters.

Do not park on grass across the road, this is PRIVATE property. Neighbor will be vocal about violating this.

We would recommend Lake Minnewaska and this cabin to family and friends!

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

What Steve tells you about the property and what you will find in the cabin it just what you get and more the bedrooms are all a nice size and the living spaces are a nice size also . I know sometimes you rent a place and wonder how they made the place look so big. The kitchen has everything very nice

If you have a large family or group I would recommend it.The kids loved going to public beach and using the paddle boards and paddle boats this is free we did it a lot.

Steve goes out of his way to make you fill at home.

This was our family vacation and there was fourteen of us ages 3 to 60 We have been doing it for 10 years and this was one of the better ones know surprises

Nice home, beautiful location on the lake

  • 3 of 5

Although the exterior of the house could use some maintenance, the interior is well kept and spacious. Plenty of room for the eight adults that stayed for the week. Kitchen and dining area were clean and had everything we needed for cooking our meals. Beds were comfortable, although I'm not sure how effective their cleaning staff is. The coffee pot had to be cleaned since it still had the old filter and coffee grains. When my daughter opened up the day bed downstairs, there was a dead spider on the sheets and another smashed dead spider on a pillow. The downstairs couch had food under the cushions which I needed to vacuum myself. Our only other cause for concern were phone messages regarding some sort of collection agency and a visit from a photographer from auctions.com wanting to take pictures of the exterior of the home. On the whole we enjoyed our stay and despite these small details if we were ever back in Minnesota, we would stay here again. On a side note, one of our group needed to go to the emergency room in Glenwood and was impressed with the e.r. facility and the caring, competent staff.

Fantastic cabin on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is selling this property short. It had all the comforts of home (dishwasher, big LCD TV, two fridges, washer/dryer, etc.) plus a beautiful lake. We spent the week of 4th of July at the property. Didn't need AC the entire week as the fans kept us cool on the warmer days. Very quiet and private inside and out. Set back from the body of the lake by pencil reeds so no jetski's flying right by the dock.

The property was clean and had everything we needed. Very kid friendly with cribs, high chair and baby gate for the stairs. The end of the dock was shallower than expected (about 2.5ft) but it was easy enough to put the outboard up and drift in the last 20 yards with a paddle. Put the boat in at Hobo Park and a 5 min ride to the house. Very easy to get the boat in and out as the channel is in line with the dock.

Highly recommend this property.

Thanks for a great week!

Fun, family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for our family vacation in August. There were 11 of us with 5 children ages 2 to 9. We really liked the layout of the house as the kids had their own area downstairs with TV, bathroom and bedroom. The home was equipped with anything you would need and well stocked with towels, detergents, paper product, etc. We rented a pontoon and enjoyed rides around the large lake. Our last evening we had a great dinner in Glenwood at the Lakeside Ballroom-neat place! The owner was great to work with~we would rent again.
