Great time on Roy Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our time in this home. It was in great condition, had everything we needed (and more) and the owners were extremely responsive and helpful. Roy lake is a great place to swim, fish, boat, paddle board, etc. as it's much calmer and quieter than Gull. My son even caught a bass right off of the home's dock!

Hope to be back here again next summer!

Great place in a fantastic location for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from our stay on Roy Lake with our 4 kids and my father-in-law. The house was perfect for our group of 7: the kids loved playing on the lawn and swimming in the water, the fire pit was a great gathering place, and the screened-in porch was a wonderful place for us to gather and enjoy the cool breeze. The house offers great views over the lake and a very peaceful setting. Highly recommended!

Wonderful home and lake

  • 5 of 5

The home on Roy Lake was perfect for our group of 10. We spent every day fishing from the dock and swimming in the lake. Every evening was spent in the screened in porch enjoying the view of the lake and the loons. The home is comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed.

This property was beautiful, inside and out. Nothing was overlooked. The screen porch was the best feature of the home. It was spacious and had beautiful furniture that we could enjoy playing cards, eating and catching views of the lake from. This home was clean and fully furnished with everything we could possibly need, like kitchen essentials, lots of towels, extra toiletries, campfire pie makers, lake toys and super comfy lakeside chairs! We loved the beautiful fire pit, gorgeous shoreline, quiet lake, loons, gas grill and washer and dryer. The owners went above and beyond by including a boat lift. We intended to visit Nisswa more frequently, but had so much fun relaxing with our family, swimming, skiing, tubing and grilling out at the property that no one wanted to leave! The property owners provided us top notch customer service; responding to our emails ahead of time immediately. Thanks for a fabulous summer vacation!

Just what we needed before school starts!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this property went WAY too fast! Jeff was so easy to work with. He answered every question we had very quickly. His property was perfect for my sister's family and mine to make priceless memories with our spouses and children. Everyone had a bed, the trundles in two of the rooms are genius! We spent much of our time out on the Chain of Lakes which is so fun. Bar Harbor, Zorbaz, Earnies, Grand View, and downtown Nisswa all just a boat ride away. (Easy to take a vehicle to as well) Perfect location and great perks to the property. Screened in porch was great (my husband said it would be more perfect with a ceiling fan), fishing off the dock, hours spent by the fire pit. We simply ran out of time! The house has all of the things you hate to pack; towels, coffee filters!, toilet paper and paper towels! Thank you so much Jeff and Nikki for great welcome basket...very thoughtful, and unforgettable memories!

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The home is in great shape and well laid out for a group. The large screened in porch was a perfect place to eat meals and hang out in the evening. The fire pit had great chairs and was well contained. The lake water was so clear that it was great for swimming and very private. We rented a pontoon for a half day so it picked us up. The location is very convenient to local restaurants, golf and Nisswa. We loved our stay.
