About Rick

My wife and I both grew up in the Midwest. We now live in the southwest corner of Minnesota about an hour from Okoboji IA! I'm self employed and my wife owns and runs a daycare, so if you have little kids we understand.

Rick purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Rick chose Arnolds Park

Growing up I have many memories of coming to Okoboji for vacations and visiting relatives. My wife and I decided to buy a cabin a Bridges Bay because of all the amenities that are near by. Our hope is that our kids grow up having some good memories of family fun at Okoboji!

What makes this cabin unique

We will have a few toys around for younger kids as ours are 2 and under. Our little boy (2 years old) really loves the water park at bridges bay! He also loves the kids rides at Arnolds Park amusement Park , and the outdoor splash park in the city of Spirit Lake near by!

Awesome stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights. The house has everything you need for a carefree getaway. There are ample supplies in the kitchen, and fun items for guest use in the garage. Our family loved playing giant Jenga, and my daughter loved the water table and toys in the garage. The beds are comfortable, we all slept great! The house is tucked away on a really quiet road inside this neighborhood, and is very close to one of the pools.

The only con: The garage opener is really a pain, it only opened for us via the keypad once the whole stay. We had to go through the house and open the garage from the inside in order to open it. We called and used the tips we were given, and it still wouldn't work. Not a deal breaker, but definitely an inconvenience.

One other suggestion would be to have a fire pit for guest use. It was the only thing that came up amongst the adults staying, is that we wish we could have had a fire to sit around at night.

We really enjoyed our stay, we'll definitely book again when we come back to Okoboji!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay! I figured out the garage door. There is a little button on the garage door opener pad in the garage. It has a lock symbol on it , if that button gets pushed by accident it puts the garage door in "lock " mode. So then you can't use keypad outside. The lock button just has to be pushed for a couple seconds to "unlock". So sorry for that , I'll probably put a note next to opener. I will also take your fire pit suggestion into consideration also. Thanks Rick

Great vacation home, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 plus 2 of our parents stayed at this vacation home in Arnolds Park area. It has a very nice layout, nicely furnished, and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We used the daily water park passes as well as the separate pool area on most of the 4 nights we stayed. The home is near to area attractions, lakes and restaurants, but also a nice place to just spend time with the family grilling, relaxing, and sitting on the patio. The owner seems to have taken all the suggestions of previous posters, because we noticed that all of the bedrooms had table lamps, there were extra fans in each room to help circulate the air between the warmer loft area and the cooler downstairs area, and there was also a portable propane fire-pit in the garage in case someone wanted to have a camp-fire on the patio.

We loved it, and would not hesitate to stay there again!

Great place; pictures provide accurate showing!

We love Okoboji and this place provided a nicely clean place to stay. Close to the Bridges Bay water park and location to put boat in. Would recommend this location to others!

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and user friendly. Kitchen was stocked with all the utensils needed. Plenty of towels and bathroom supplies. Couldn't believe all the things in the garage to use. Kids toys, pool toys, fishing poles. We had two young grand kids with us and they had all kinds of toys to play with. Well stay here again.

Good, not excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

The Bridges Bay cabin we rented was fine for a short stay. There was four of us and there was plenty of room. While the cabin's floors were a bit dirty overall the rest of the cabin was pretty clean. Location was good, it was a short drive to where ever we wanted to go. Would of liked more instructions as to how to use TV, calling Media Com was useless. In general, would have liked table lamps in all the bedrooms so you did not have to rely on overhead lighting if wanting to read while in bed at night. Cooking ustensils in kitchen needed to be washed before using as they were not clean. Need to leave better instructions on what is expected upon check out. Was unsure if beds needed stripping of linens and the like. It was very hot during our stay and the air conditioning was set at 72 (owners want it to stay at 72) which could not keep the upstairs bedrooms cool. Since there were no ceiling fans in the upstairs bedrooms it was very hot. Overall the beds were comfortable. The Bridges Bay resort is suitable for kids but our party was much older and looking for some r & r.

Streets of the Bridges Bay resort was lined with cars and cabins are very close together. Overall the cabin served our needs but could use some improvements which is why I gave it 4 stars.

Owner's Response: Deborah, Thank you for your review, it is good to know what guest would like changed. I will put table lamps in all bedrooms this weekend. The cleaning has been done up to this point by a cleaning crew. Next summer we will be cleaning it ourselves, because we agree that they miss some areas. I also agree that the upstairs can be warmer then main level. It helps to run ceiling fan in loft area and turn the fan of the cooling system to constant on, so it keeps the trying to push the cool air upstairs. I will also try to make directions for running remote more clear. Thanks
