Great place, I highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 17 (8 adults + 9 children). The cabin is extremely spacious, clean and well maintained. Ample space for the kids to play. Remote location, which is great to escape the city life. Beautiful lakes and scenery. We were there for Thanksgiving and the place was properly heated.

The kids loved it. So did the adults. Transaction and communication with owners were smooth and very friendly. I highly recommend.

Quiet getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at club house lake home with our family for a week in August. The house had enough space and activities to keep everyone busy. The children's area with the toy box and rocking horses was a pleasant surprise. If you have small children make sure to bring outlet covers because they are a draw to the little ones and there are a lot of outlets. The pool and ping pong table were used every day. The roku provided was perfect because we could use Netflix and HBO to watch movies at night.

The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, and silverware (bring sharp knives!) Make sure to bring your own spices as there isn't any supplied. Also make sure to bring extra toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc if staying for more than a day or two. The house is very secluded and takes time to get back to town for groceries, so make sure you come prepared.

We enjoyed the pond-especially our two year old granddaughter enjoyed feeding the fish. The lake is more of a hike than we thought it would be and you cannot see it from the house. There isn't a beach for playing in the sand. We did rent the pontoon (which has seen better days) but ran fine and we were especially thankful that our gas was refilled within two hours. The lake is small but perfect for some tubing and lots of fishing. We were catching fish so fast that it was fun to be out on the lake.

Cell service is almost non existent, which made for a great family trip of having fun together. There wasn't distractions as you are away from electronics for the most part and you have lots of woods, etc. If you haven't spent time in the northern part of Minnesota, this is the place to do it...you are at the Edge of the Wilderness.

On a side note, the Vince Shute wildlife sanctuary is about 90 minutes away and a great side trip to see bears in their natural habitat.

Beautiful lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We overall enjoyed our stay at the property! Loved the house especially the kitchen. Loved how the house was so big that even when we had 18 people, it was still so big that it did not feel crowded at all. Loved how Josh and Kristen were both very responsive to all our message. We were planning on doing laundry During our stay but was unable to do so because the dryer was out of order at the moment, so Josh and Kristen gave us a free day for the pontoon which was a bonus!! One recommendation we would give is that maybe upgrading the pontoon or at least have a cover on the pontoon. The driver seat was broken, every time we flip the seat to sit on and got up, the seat will unflip itself. The pontoon was moldey or at least had a slight smell. The sitting seats for The passengers were also ripped and also had a slight smell to it but was still useable. We enjoyed our stayed and will be returning!

Owner's Response: An update to this review for future guests/travelers at Clubhouse Lake Home: -The dryer has been replaced with a new dryer. (The dryer was out of order for less than a week because it stopped working on a turnover day. With a somewhat remote location, it required time for us to schedule the purchase and installation of a new dryer). Please be assured that in a rare instance such as this, we will notify guests/travelers with as much advance notice as possible) :) -The pontoon seat has been repaired. However, the pontoon has ongoing wear and tear and is not new. Our daily and weekly pricing reflects what we believe is a good value for our guests. The pontoon has a cover which is taken off prior to groups arriving (if they are renting it), so that they do not have to do it themselves. If you have questions about this rental or other possible watercraft rentals in the area, please feel free to contact us anytime. Thanks!

Clubhouse Lake Home is nestled among magestic red pine trees overlooking two beautiful man-made ponds. Our home is ideal for entertaining small or large groups with a beautiful balcony off the kitchen, a lush lawn and paved areas throughout the yard. The ponds feature a small dock for feeding fish and 2 one person kayaks are inlcuded for your use on the ponds or on beautiful Clubhouse Lake. The lake has crystal clear water and our lake home boasts over 200 feet of private lakeshore. A small grassy area, sandy beach and private dock is located just a short walk from the lake home. Clubhouse Lake is great for amateur or experienced fishing, kayaking and canoeing. The lake is also linked to other area lakes by passageways (chain of lakes).

Clubhouse Lake Home is conveniently located ~10 miles from the town of Marcell which has a convenience/gas station/live bait & sporting goods store (Frontier Sports), tourist information/interpretice center (Edge of the Wilderness Discovery Center), cafes,restaurants & bars, hardware store, park with paved walking trail, tennis courts, basketball court, horseshoes & playground, fitness center, post office and medical clinic.
