About Don or Mary Jo Behrmann

We wish to share our beautiful lake home with others while we can not be there to enjoy it ourselves. I have worked at a Resort and have managed another VRBO property. We feel you will enjoy your vacation at our little piece of paradise in Northern Minnesota.

Don or Mary Jo Behrmann purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Don or Mary Jo Behrmann chose Minnesota

The day my husband and I saw this property, I heard the wind through the pine trees that surround the cabin and felt peacefulness. I knew then it was the place we had been searching for. We lived near the twin cities and wanted a place to go for the weekends to relax and enjoy the evenings by the fire. Catching fish, 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, and blueberry picking was an extra. Hope you will enjoy the lake home and extras as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Just 4-15 miles to multiple lakes and bar/restraunts, art center, churches and Scenic State Park

Very beautiful and amazing scenery, with a beautiful lake and yard.

The property was beautiful and we had the time of our lives. The lake was beautiful and the kayaking was perfect for the kids. The town of BigFork was filled with nice people that told us about the surroundings. The cabin was beautiful.

Don & Mary Jo were the perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for solitude, here it is. We saw one person on the lake one day, otherwise I had it all for myself for a week (My wife does not fish). Caught pike, always a fun time. This place is absolutely quiet, there were times my wife and I did not speak due to the absolute serenity of this place.

Don & Mary Jo had everything ready for us, there was charcoal for the grill, a gas grill, firewood was stacked and a plenty. They even had a large cart full of kindling. The home was stocked with all of the kitchen amenities you could want.

Don't wait, book this now. We can't wait till next vacation time to do it again.

Love this place!

We have stayed here for three years in a row, over the MEA break. The cabin is clean and well-maintained. It is on a lovely lake and you feel like you are the only ones around. The owners are very helpful and we had everything we needed. Wonderful place!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week! It's peaceful and secluded just like we wanted! Got the whole lake to ourselves we never saw anyone else! The cabin was clean And had everything we needed besides food and personal items! We loved having a small boat, paddle boat and kayaks to use! We also caught more fish than we ever imagined we would! We also slept better than we have in weeks the bed was so comfortable! For us newlyweds it was the perfect honeymoon away from everything! We definitely recommend checking this place out if you want peace And quiet! We want to come back again!! Thank you Don & Jo your place is absolutely wonderful!

Owner's Response: Good Morning Don and Diane, Thank you for taking a few minutes to write a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed our cabin as much as our guest in the past. There is something very welcoming and relaxing about our cabin, we are so thankful for what we have had the opportunity to have. We felt we should share it with others when we aren't able to be there ourselves. Thank you for taking such great care of it while you were there. It makes our cleaning job much easier. Thank you for choosing Behrmann's shore for your vacation. Don & Mary Jo
