Lovely place to stay

We spent a week with extended family - six adults and four kids. The place was spacious, beautiful and very lovely surroundings. We hope to stay there again.

Luxury in the Northwoods!

  • 5 of 5

"Up North" vacation rentals have been our family summer getaway for many years. We all agreed this one is by far our favorite to date. Why? (1) The owners could NOT have been easier to deal with or worked harder to make our stay a pure pleasure. (2) The lake home - both beautiful and functional (design, furnishings and ambience), property (expertly landscaped with plants and flowers everywhere) and extensive outdoor amenities (recent model gas grill, hot tub, bricked firepit area close to the house, pontoon, paddle boat, kayaks & canoe -- to mention just a few) were "top of the line" and impeccably maintained. The lake itself is incredibly clear (not tannin stained as many up north lakes are) with a sandy, shallow, shaded area by the dock perfect for little ones -- our 2-1/2 year old grand-daughter never wanted to get out! (She also loved the sandbox and many toys available to keep her occupied!) The overall attention to detail is amazing and the price surprisingly reasonable...we can hardly wait to return!

Even better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every way. Had 5 adults and 5 kids for our Family Vacation in July. The included Pontoon was a bonus that we used every day. The kitchen was equipped with every thing we needed. The home is spacious, well designed and the personal touches were enjoyed and appreciated. The kids and adults alike enjoyed the hot tub. Sitting around the fire pit late at night was wonderful.

Thanks Sue for sharing your home!

Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the owner when we arrived and the place was amazing! We have three grown children and their spouses that were able to join us for most of the time and the place accommodated all of us very comfortably. The gourmet kitchen provided us with the room and the necessary gadgets to cook wonderful meals. The outdoor griddle was a plus and used for morning breakfasts on the deck. We were blessed with gorgeous weather all week so naturally most of our time was spent outdoors enjoying fishing, kayaking (also included) and the pontoon to tool around on the beautiful water. The closeness to downtown Crosslake, Pequot, and Nisswa provided us with the shopping we love to do and the boys played several rounds of golf at Crosswoods. We couldn't be more pleased with our vacation this year and although we've been vacationing in the Crosslake area for over 30 years, this was, by far, the best place we have ever had the privilege of staying. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
