About Dan Whitehead

Dan & Marnie Whitehead purchased this property in 1998 with the dream of clearing the property enough to put their airstream camper on it until they could build their own cabin. Together with their two young daughters, they accomplished their dream and built the cabin in 2003. They have been working on finishing the cabin by themselves for the past 10 years while enjoying raising their family.

Why Dan Whitehead chose Deer Creek

We fell in love with this property because of the many lakes, parks, festivals and other community events that bring people together! The property is absolutely serene no matter what season!

What makes this cabin unique

East Leaf Lake not only offers a variety of activities on the lake but also on Leaf River which is also perfect for canoeing, kayaking & fishing. This is an excellent pan-fishing lake with good Walleye, Northern & Large Mouth Bass! The lake is perfect for families as there is low boat traffic on most days.

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful retreat! I was here over Thanksgiving by myself and had wonderful opportunities to go photograph the local area and to reflect on some things. I highly recommend this rental! Dan (the owner) called in early on to see if I had everything I needed, which I appreciated!

Cute cabin with a perfect touch of home to it!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the fact that my daughter didn't catch any fish, we still had an amazing time!! 😉

The cabin is far enough from anyone so you feel a sense of privacy and escape, but close enough to town for those quick trips if needed!

Owner's Response: First of of all, I will talk to the fish about that. How dare them. We really appreciate the nice comments.

Cozy cabin with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

Rented during a weekend with beautiful fall colors along the lake. Cabin was cozy, wood stove kept us warm relaxing in the evenings. Beds comfortable. Full kitchen had everything we could need for eating in.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Deer Creek was the perfect getaway. Easy to find and quiet. House was in great order and had everything needed for a quiet weekend out of town. Comfy for our stay of 2.

Relaxing, convenient, quiet, comfortable cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We and two other couples stayed here for the weekend while attending a wedding up in Frazee. This cabin had everything that we needed for a stress-free weekend on the lake. The kitchen had all the basics, the beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water to manage showers for 6 people, and games/dvd's to help pass the time during wet weather. We would stay here again if we decide to come back to this area. We would recommend it to others looking for that getaway time on a lake.
