We stayed at Jim's property last weekend for my sister-in-laws bachelorette party. He was so accommodating to the dates needed for out stay. His property was the only available in the area (including hotels) that would allow a one night stay. The property was absolutely perfect and just was we envisioned. The basement is wide open for air mattresses and slumber party for many friends. The deck was spacious and allowed us to enjoy a beautiful evening outside also. Up to date appliances and the coziness of the cottage made us feel right at home. It is centrally located that we could walk to zorbaz. The neighbors were friendly and a welcoming neighborhood. Thanks again for making the weekend the best we could have dreamed of!
Had excellent communication with Jim from the beginning. Everything is as advertised and had zero problems with the place, the boat and accommodations. We wanted to watch the UFC fight and contacted Jim prior to the night and he had it paid for and ready for us to watch. Do not hesitate to book a stay at his home as it appears just like the photos. The location is ideal for a golf outing, a weekend on the boat, etc...
We stayed in mid August for a girls weekend and bachelorette party and it was perfect.
We loved the view - lots of boat traffic to watch coming out from Zorbaz and the access. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors.
The basement is plenty big and was perfect for our games and for all 10 of us to sit around and hang out. The basement couch has a pull out but would also be large enough space to accommodate an air mattress or two (or 7;).
We talked about the possibility of two families joining to rent it for the week - would be very nice and plenty big for kiddios to play and run around.
The king size bed in basement was very comfortable! All the sheets and comforters were very clean and seemed rather new. For us being in our early 30's and professionals, we appreciated the cleanliness. Bathrooms - clean! Upstairs bathroom - updated.
One gal commented it was a lot cleaner than she was expecting. All the carpet in the basement is very plush and seems pretty new.
The carpet upstairs is not as clean and has some noticeable use but still fine.
The bonfire pit in the backyard was great, very spacious, love the sand and chairs- although it had rained the night before so a lot of the wood was wet so we didn't stay out by the fire for too long.
We enjoyed the fresh coffee beans from the local Nisswa coffee house that Jim provides.
We wanted to sit at the table on the upper deck but when we went to wash off the table, the rag was covered in black so we ended up avoiding it. Not sure if it's produced from the wood table and rain combo or if it was a coating from the trees above but might recommend putting a cover on the table and chairs on deck. Kind of a bummer because its a beautiful view!
Our favorite part was the pontoon. We rented the pontoon for 1/2 day that Jim had available. The pontoon was large, comfy and clean. We were able to seat 10 of us comfortably. We hired a local driver that we recommended to Jim for future people looking someone to drive them around. He didn't have a set price so we all just tipped him - $120 from 1 pm - 5 pm.
Of course with Zorbaz being so close, we had to hit it up. It's probably a 10 min. walk. but very convenient for those who don't want to drive.
Overall, it was a great stay. Definitely a prime location - Saturday morning did a quick run into grocery and liquor store. Very convenient that it's only a 5 min. drive to Schaefers Foods and liquor store.
Will definitely recommend to family and friends!
This house was just perfect for our family vacation. It was plenty big for the 6 of us with a huge downstairs area. As I mentioned, you can't beat the location. Everything was great and we'll for sure stay again!
The home we stayed at was nice, very clean and in a great location. We rented the pontoon boat and had a very good time touring the Gull Lake chain. We have already told the Jim that we would love to rent the home again next year!
The house is very clean and kept up. great location on Gull Lake. the best thing is that it is a family neighborhood so it is quite and friendly.
Centrally located between the public access , Bar harbor, Zorbaz and Lost lake lodge. About 5 miles to Nisswa. Close to Grand View
