Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the wonderful privilege of staying in this vacation rental property for three nights over the 2015 Labor Day weekend. When we arrived the house and garage were "move in" ready.

There were 12 adults in our 60s & 70s in our party. This house was quiet, peaceful and homey. We have been seasonal residents of the Lake Okoboji / Spirit Lake region for nearly 30 years and couldn't believe how peaceful and quiet this place was on one of the three major summer holiday weekends......unbelievable!!! An outstanding retreat from the hustle and bustle of the lakes region. The property owners are very cordial and their word is good. The price is fair when you consider everything that you get for the buck. A wonderful and easily accessible adult retreat.

We highly recommend staying here.

Very nice little get away

  • 4 of 5

Trip was very good. Fishing was not good at all but that was the only downside to it. We forgot some games there and since it turned into a bit of a hassle to get them returned we will hopefully get them back next time we stay.

Owner's Response: Since the customer chose not to pay for shipping and handling, & said "That's Ok, we'll pick them up when we come again", those items were placed in storage for their safe keeping until they come next year. Glad they had a good trip.

great home nice views

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home on Spirit Lake for a week this summer. It was a wonderful, cozy home with awesome views of Spirit Lake. The home has a lovely deck that we all could sit around and enjoy. We had plenty of room for sleeping. A big plus was the stackable washer and dryer in one of the two bathrooms. We were able to do laundry and not take home a lot of dirty clothes. We would highly recommend this home. The owners were terrific--hope to rent this home again.

Family fishing week!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your lake house. Plenty to do to keep busy and have fun. The lake was a great temperature so our 9 grandchildren had lots of fun swimming. We have lots of fishermen/women in our family and so the dock was almost always busy with someone fishing. The boat lift was great for our bass boat. The bikes were used to get to the ice cream shop and the free library. The deck was great for setting, visiting, watching the lake activity, roasting marsh mellows, feeding the kids, painting pictures of the lake, etc. We even got in on a concert by The Martins and Mark Lowry in Arnold's Park and a movie in the park sitting on the grass. Fun shopping in local stores. A great week for my husband and I, our three girls, two of their husbands and 9 children.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was a family vacation that our family will remember for years to come. The lake setting was beautiful and perfect. We had family come & go but at one point we had 9 adults and 5 children at the house and we had plenty of space. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend this stay to anyone.

Family Get-together

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time with our adult kids and four grandchildren six and below. The spacious dock was used for fishing and our six year old grandson caught three walleye. What a wonderful moment! We came from Minnesota, Michigan, Louisiana and Iowa and everyone enjoyed the wonderful accomodations - everything provided that is mentioned in their description. It rained one of the days but we just enjoyed a day inside with all the technology and games at our disposal. A day at a beach just down the road was also part of the fun with items used from their well stocked garage. Ella, one of the owners, answered all our questions very timely and saw to our every need. This was an awesome first time experience and we would highly recommend this lakehouse for your time away from home.
