About Laurel Miller

We are both lifetime residents in the area growing up on the lakes and know how enjoyable it is to take friends and family out on the lake. So when we got the opportunity to acquire a cabin we wanted to share those same experiences with others.

Laurel Miller purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Laurel Miller chose Minnesota

We started with one cabin to enjoy and rent out and soon found out that without any resorts in the area ,there was a need for cabin rental.

What makes this cabin unique

Clearwater Lake is one of the top fishing and recreational lake in the area? That also includes winter ice fishing with a plowed access onto the lake only 100 yards from the driveway. Also, walking distance to a marina and great bar & grill. Yet secluded overlooking Clearwater Lake. Great kitchen and bathrooms with granite tops. Views of the lake from almost every room. Back yard with room to play and enjoy a quite night around a campfire.

Great summer and winter fishing within feet of the cabin. Winter fishing has a plowed access within 200 feet of the cabin and summer fishing is fun right off the dock, or anywhere on the lake.

A wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family of 6. The house was really clean and beautifully decorated. We got a lot of use out of the deck, which had a wonderful view of the lake, there was plenty of sleeping space for everyone and the house had all the amenities of home. There is a restaurant next door with excellent food and there are lots of neat little shops and antique stores in the surrounding towns. Most importantly the fishing in the lake and the surrounding lakes was incredible. The owner, Laurel, was always available via email or phone in case we needed anything. This was definitely one of our best vacations and we hope to come back again. Laurel and her wonderful property made it worth the trip from Ohio.

Lake Cabin for a short getaway

  • 4 of 5

Overall - a nice renovated cabin with some minor drawbacks depending on your purpose. Our purpose - a memorial getaway for a small group to enjoy some fishing on the lake, off the dock, some close golf games, good grill food and time together.

Pros - Location is 2 mins from bait shop and restaurant and 15 mins from 2 golf courses. Upstairs is excellent with 2 spacious bedrooms and the bathroom is huge. Downstairs is nice with a small bunk-bed room off from the kitchen. The kitchen was a nice size. Living room was nice and porch/deck has a nice view.

Cons - There was a lack of paper towels which seems like a normal thing to have plenty of at a cabin/vrbo. No spices in the cupboards. The grill was a rust bucket, inside and out, which made it impossible to grill. The dock was old and the boat lifts didnt seem to really work. Fishing off the dock is pointless since the water is only 4 feet deep and can be weedy. No Wifi. Neighbors can be loud and obnoxious at times. The road is in between the water and the cabin and can get busy.

Thanks for letting us use your location!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time and gave us 4 stars. I do let you know if you have any needs to call me and let me know. The grill is only two years old and is very useable along with the dock and lift. Fishing off the dock has been very successful for bass and sunfish for a lot of our guests.. Wifi was never advertised as most guest want to get away and it is available free at the restaurant one block down.

Big Lake, Minnesota

Wonderful Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine, forever friends, enjoyed our once a year, long weekend get away at this great cabin, for the second year in a row. Laurel was very timely in getting all the information we needed for our stay, and is available if anything is needed. The cabin was clean, beds were comfortable, and we had more than enough room for all of us. Everything we needed for our stay was stocked in the cabin, which made our stay very relaxing. The view of the lake is great from inside the cabin and out. The close proximity to the bar and grill is convenient for the nights where everyone wants to take a break from cooking and the dishes. We enjoyed warm fires on the cool nights, and truly enjoyed the spacious outdoor space. We had a wonderful time, and recommend this location for those who are looking for a place to spend time with others. Thank you for another great year.

Spacious cabin near a lake!

  • 5 of 5

Laurel's cabin is fantastic.

Only a little more than an hour from Minneapolis and right across the street from a beautiful lake for fishing, swimming and motorsports.

The cabin is very spacious and was a perfect fit for my yearly reunion with eight people.

Thank you for having us Laurel!
