Come on up and take a drive north of grand rapids, mn on the national scenic byway and edge of the wilderness route on mn highway 38. Enjoy this incredible home on a quiet lake deep in the heart of the chippewa national forest. The loons will sing you to sleep as the sun sets on the end of another beautiful day. Enjoy 19 miles of hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, or hunting in the suomi hills wilderness area. Bring your bikes, snowmobiles, or atvs. There are endless miles of trails and back country roads for everyone. Prefer to stay closer to home? There is a big sandy beach for swimming, a dock for your boat, and a fire pit for those s’mores. Enjoy that first cup of coffee in the morning as the sun shines in the cedar screen house on the deck.
The home features two levels of living with four bedrooms, sleeping for 10, and two full bathrooms. There is a fully stocked and modern, eat in kitchen with a formal dining room. Gas fireplaces are located in the upstairs living room and downstairs family room. Wifi, and dvd player is available. There is also a large electric sauna.
We had a perfect week here!! The house was comfortable and we had plenty of room for our crew. The kitchen had everything I needed and more. Location was beautiful... Quiet and peaceful. My 20 month old grandson had a blast on the beach and playing in the water. We enjoyed the canoes and the beauty of the lake. Everything was perfect including the weather!! I have been using VRBO for years and this is best rental I've ever had. Thanks Mike!! We would love to come back!
Beautiful lake home, with very nice lake shore and decent fishing. Wonderfully cool under the trees at the lake shore. The owner has a lot of rules and regulations - but this good as the owner is fussy, which is reflective of the lake home, trouble free of any failures or house problems. Nice dock to tie up the boat and swim from!
Giving some thought to booking next year, but a year in advance is to early, and depends on plans of middle aged children and their families!
Refund of security deposit, one day after leaving the lake home for our home was greatly appreciated!
Thanks for letting us share your lake home.

We rented this house for a friend's weekend. When we arrived the grass on the septic mound had patches of recently dead grass indicating the septic system was not functioning properly. On the last day of our stay the system backed up causing sewage to back-up through the drains in the basement. We immediately reported this to the owners and we told that there had been a lot of people there over the last couple weeks and it was probably full. Once it came time to return our deposit, the owners told us they were keeping it for clean-up of the septic mess and that we had flushed too much paper? We had only used the bathrooms as we would in our own homes and didn't even use more than 2 rolls of toiler paper the entire weekend. The system was obviously in distress when we arrived and the owner chose to do the shady and dishonest thing and make our party pay for the overuse of the system caused by their over-booking of the property. I am disgusted at the way they handled the situation and will not be renting this house again.
Our family of four spent three nights over New Year's Eve. There was ice fishing (25" walleye!) for the 11 year old, and a whole frozen lake as a palette and playground for the 8 year old. Great neighbors helped with the ice fishing and invited us sledding on their hill. The location is quiet and beautiful.
The house was comfortable and well-maintained. Definitely more home-like than cabin-y. Fireplaces kept us warm, and the view was great. Such beautiful winter light coming off the snow and through the large windows.
The pictures on VRBO did not really do the house and beach justice. The beach was much nicer than we expected. So nice to have a private beach and fire pit area. The only thing I would recommend is having a rake for the goose droppings. It is on a nice quiet lake so you do not have boats flying by at fast speeds. We had a few issues arise for us but the property manager was very helpful and the owners reimbursed us fairly. Would definitely recommend.
We stayed at the home with a handful of friends for a relaxing weekend. The home was spacious to allow for privacy if needed, with an open kitchen-dining-living area for group interactions. The kitchen had many supplies (knives, coffee pot, etc) and a gas grill for grilling.
The home is right on the lake with a sand bar, dock and fire pit for lounging and canoes to enjoy the lake.
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay - we'll be back for sure!
