About Mark Nowlin

The Doll House on the Point is enjoyed by two families. Two brothers and their wives decided they wanted a place for all the kids, cousins, and friends to grow up fishing, swimming, tubing, waterskiing and to spend more time as a family.

Mark Nowlin purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Nowlin chose Minnesota

We are the 5th generation to own a property on South Center Lake. The lake is very special to our family and it will be to yours as well. Lindstrom is conveniently located only 35 minutes from the Twin Cities metro area yet you feel like you are up north every minute you spend on the lake.

What makes this house unique

Only steps from the beach and water and lake views from every room! 2 kayaks with paddles and a pedal boat are included..

A great family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family vacation with 6 adults and 5 children all less than six years old with the youngest 2 months. The sandy beach was a big hit with the kids and we made great use of the paddle boat and kayaks. The kids caught some little sunfish off the dock and we also caught a nice bass as well as a northern pike. I also brought along my 21' runabout boat and was able to pull it up on shore with no issues to leave it there overnight. The accommodations were great and the bunk room was a big hit with the grandkids. My only comment on bedrooms is that the fifth bedroom is on the main floor with a fosball table in the same room so it didn't really work well as an extra bedroom but the other four bedrooms provided all the space we needed for our families. The home is well taken care of and it has the best location on the lake. A fantastic stay!!!! Thanks Mark

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay! Many of our guests enjoy the convenience of having a main level bedroom, as we advertise, to avoid walking up the steps.

My family stayed there for my sons wedding at the winery. It was a great location and there was plent of room for everyone to get ready and sleep. It was a great setting at the end of the road.

Great Getway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and i were looking to abandon responsibility, kids, and work for the weekend and this house provided the perfect getaway. It was a short 1 hour drive from Minneapolis, yet had the remote, relaxed vibe we were looking for.

The house itself was well maintained. Kelly was very nice and stopped by to show us around. We loved the beach and yard and would definitely consider revisiting for our annual trip next year.

Beautiful home, beautiful property and fun town to visit!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, comfortable for a large family group! The beach is great for kids....nice sandy beach. It was a great place to relax and kickback after a fun day on the beach and the daily trip in to town for ice cream! Would definitely recommend! Planning to return again next year with family and friends!

All day in the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with the 12 of us at the lake. It is hard to find such large properties to rent for our annual college reunion of friends (kids tag along too). We spend most of our time in the water swimming, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, and catching frogs. The kids run from finished meals, put on their life jackets, and head to the beach to play every day. No screens. Hurray. We prefer to stay in and cook due to the large group size. The kitchen was stocked really well and we used the Weber grill every day. Most of our meals were spent on the huge deck facing the water. Amazing views. I think that is the biggest bald eagle I have ever seen. Thanks for a great lake house. We'll be back next summer for sure.

Completely DIALED IN!

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculate. You just can't beat the location. The sandy beach is huge and happens to be one of the very best fishing spots on the lake. We found all the furnishings to be in operational order and enjoyed the new gas Webber Grill. The house itself is well maintained and clean. We were asked by the manager provide him feedback on the beds since they had recently changed all the mattresses... 5 star!

If looking at this property for your family, do not hesitate as you'll love it. No surprise they have many advanced bookings.
