Amazing, comfortable, courteous, beautiful, spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend. The “cabin” was spotless, comfortable and the owners went above and beyond- setting out a welcome basket, communicating well. This place is a gem and easy to get to! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin with our family. The views of the lake are also amazing! We hope we can come back next year!!

Great vacation with the grandkids

  • 5 of 5

Oh My Goodness! Never have i experienced a VRBO stay so darn efficient and thorough in every way. Thank you thank you thank you for all your help! The grandkids enjoyed the craft box and loved the hotdog/marshmellow roasters things and the "pretty" lights per my 2 year old granddaughter! We enjoyed ourselves so very much. Even the full day of rain on Thursday, movies, games, crafts!! Fun had by all. Great idea on the toddler bed and we put it to use. Great memories were made. PS, my 7 year old grandson said his favorite thing was that he learned how to play bad mitton!!

Wonderful getaway in the Northwoods.

  • 5 of 5

A great cabin on a beautiful lake. Very close to Hayward and Right outside Stone Lake. We enjoyed cruising in the pontoon, fishing and relaxing in the yard. Has a fire pit and lawn for lots of activities. The owners were a pleasure to deal with for the rental.

Great lake getaway for families

  • 5 of 5

This house on Whitefish Lake is a great, clean and comfortable north woods getaway. The photos on the web site are accurate but in my opinion really do not do justice to the home's charm, the beautiful setting in the woods or the serene lake view from the living room/back deck--we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and saw the lovely property in person! The home's owners were very helpful and were terrific to work with at all stages. The owners also provided a variety of outdoor games, arts and crafts and other activities to entertain our small children and make us feel at home. Highly recommended!

Spacious and clean, great for multiple family trip

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us, including 2 young children, stayed here over a winter weekend. The place is laid out very nicely to accommodate a large group, with beds and a small living area downstairs, in addition to the main floor which has the large kitchen, dining room, and living room arranged in an open concept. Great mudroom to stash winter gear. Leah, the owner, couldn't be easier to work with.
