About Jamie Hillesland

My sons and I purchased this property a few years ago as a place to come and refresh and enjoy peaceful quiet time together. Much of our lives are busy and active; full of adventure, work, and travel. Island Lake has been the perfect blend of lake activity and solitude. I've loved hosting families from around the area and have met some wonderful people in the process. I live just 90 miles from the cabin in ND and manage a Rehab department in a nearby rural hospital.

Why Jamie Hillesland chose Minnesota

My hope is that from the moment you check in, you feel like you're home. The property feels very private and personal. Its elevated views of the lake are magical. The trees that surround you as you sit on the deck allow the sun to warm you, but create a buffer to the noise of the boating activity on the water, so you can feel a part of the activity while not losing out on the serenity of the setting. The dock arrangement creates a shallow swim or wading area close to shore, and on the other side, deeper water swimming. There is a swim raft that can be moved to meet your preferred water depth. There is a small sandy area on the shoreline at the waters edge.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin offers a place for friends and family to gather in intimate groups or larger gatherings of up to a maximum of 10 people. There is no additional charge for large groups . There is room for approximately 5 vehicles.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has a fantastic location overlooking a quiet lake.

The property is very clean and comfortable. Large bathroom, comfortable beds, open dining room, kitchen, living room with views of the lake. Large sun room also has a great view of the lake.

Our kids enjoyed the floating dock and we were very happy to get our boat out of the water each night using the electric boat lift.

The large outdoor sitting area with fire pit also has a amazing view of the lake. We really loved our stay.

Jamie is very easy to deal with and we can't wait to go back.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this private lake home for a family vacation. It was everything we needed. With adult children, the extra living space was perfect. We enjoyed the water, dined on the deck, and had sat by the fire at night. We cabin is emaculate and had a homey feeling to it as well. We will be back!

This cabin was exactly what we needed for a family get together. It's beautiful with everything you need for a comfortable get away. The lake is serene and the sunset on the lake is incredible. My new favorite vacation spot! I intend to stay here every year.

A beautiful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this cabin on 2 occasions so far; first for a family gathering, then later for a romantic getaway. Although these are 2 very different purposes, this lovely cabin served both incredibely well.

For a family gathering, it offers just enough space for everyone to be comfortable, yet connected. The availibility of a full kitchen and large bathroom, plus plenty of sleeping space, makes for a wonderful time with family. In my mind, grilling on the deck overlooking the water, with family and friends just screams a Minnesota summer! :)

For a romantic getaway, the gorgeous lake views, breathtaking sunsets, and serene, quiet setting was just perfection! The cabin is situated so it feels as if you are floating above the lake surrounded by trees, it is hard to beat a view like that at sunset.

I can't recommend this cabin enough. If you are looking for a place to get away and enjoy nature, this is a great choice. This cabin is constantly filled with love, fun, and happy summer vibes, you will feel it all the minute you walk in.
