About Amy & Rod Lamb

My husband and I are both in customer service industries and we look forward to helping you have the most enjoyable and relaxing vacation possible. We were both born and raised in the Duluth area and moved south to the Minneapolis area to try and gain a few extra weeks of summer. I am a Realtor so if you fall in love with Fish Lake and the Mora area I can help you find your very own dream cabin!

Amy & Rod Lamb purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Amy & Rod Lamb chose Minnesota

We rented a pontoon boat for last July 4th and after a few hours on Fish Lake we realized that it was the perfect lake for us. We started looking at cabins immediately and were thrilled to find the perfect one for us within a month.

What makes this cabin unique

The three decks and the gorgeous views of the lake are definitely the highlight of this charming, cozy cabin. From the time you exit your vehicle and walk down the steps to the cabin you will feel your blood pressure going down.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful cabin offered exactly what our family was looking for-a quiet and relaxing getaway! We were thrilled with the critter sightings: Bald eagles, hummingbirds, frogs, herons, squirrels, catbirds, geese, ducks, finches, turtles, loons, chipmunks...we never knew what was going to show up next! The view from all of the decks is a real treat, too. Bring your binoculars! We were so glad we did as we used them regularly to watch the eagles soaring over the lake. Our family of four was very comfortable with the space in the cabin, and when our son drove up to visit for a few days there was plenty of room for him as well. We appreciated having the master bedroom upstairs with its own deck. There was a nice selection of dvd's, magazines, and games there for our use as well as plenty of kitchen utensils, pots and pans, dishes, etc... Rod and Amy were perfect hosts, very attentive to what our needs might be, even checking to be sure we were okay when some weather was rolling though. The lake itself is a great lake to kayak on and the kids enjoyed swimming off the pontoon. The closest town, Mora, is just minutes away and has everything you might need, a nice grocery store, charming shops and such friendly people. The only negative thing I can say is that it's too easy to fall in love with this place and not want to leave! We would definitely recommend Island View to our family and friends.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We try and do everything we can to accommodate our guests needs but there are some things that are out of our control...like weather:) You and your family were real troopers during the "monsoon" and my husband and I are blown away by your positive attitude about life - it's a blessing you are lucky to have. We would love to have you stay again anytime!

Cozy and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cute little cabin twice now. Such a cozy place on such a beautiful lake! Having the pontoon was more than wonderful as there is pretty good fishing (especially down closer to the opening to the river), however, some of the best fishing was right off the dock :-) My only suggestion would be to make sure you have an anchor with you because the lake does have a lot of movement from the river (we always carry one with us when we rent). Amy and Rod both were a pleasure to work with and we would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away but still be close enough to the cities to not have to spend half your time getting there!!

Nice and warm cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Thanks Giving in this lovely cabin. It's beautiful in winter when the lake is frozen. I think it will be more beautiful in summer! The only small problem is no wifi. Everything is good!

great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Real close to home yet far enough for peace and quiet. Perfect sized home for small group. Rented the pontoon and spent a relaxing afternoon cruising along the lake. Great place for anyone who needs a couple days away. Met with Amy right away, lovley person. Thanks again for the opportunity.. our stay was all that we expected. Will always keep this place as an option for when in need of a break :)

quiet lake house

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful lake with good fishing right from the dock. The place is fairly small, but we were there to spend time together. The owners are very nice and want you to enjoy yourselves. Having the canoe constantly available makes for a little extra fun. And don't forget to rent the pontoon boat as well!
