This home is perfect for a winter getaway and between December and March you can walk out onto the frozen lake, drill a hole, and fish for walleye to cook up on the gas grill in the evening. If you prefer to learn from an expert, venture out with guiding companies such as Tonka Fishing or Jasper Guiding Services.

Winter sports enthusiasts should head to Hylands Ski Area or Buck Hill, both located within 50 minutes of the property, for a day of skiing or snowboarding! There are also over 22,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails found in the State with some of them starting within just a few blocks of the home.

5/5 Excellent

Family wedding
Amazing home for our family. Older quaint home that is perfect with amazing views! Plenty of places to sleep and gather! Exactly what we were hoping to get for our family not in Minnesota!

4/5 Good

Older home, not for little ones
We had a four night stay with 9 people and there was plenty of room for all of us to sleep. The home is older with charming features. However, this was not a good property for a 1 year old and 3 year old. Lots of furniture inside and relatively steep stairs. We spent a lot of time on the deck but the kids had to wear shoes because there were deck nails sticking up. We had to block one of the gates with a chair because it didn't latch properly. The HVAC system seems to be inconsistent- two nights were fine and two nights were really hot in the upstairs bedrooms even though the thermostat was at the same temperature. The fans in the rooms did help, but both my kids (and the adults) were awake and sweating during the night. The kitchen is well appointed and we appreciated the coffee and big jug of water left by the owner, who was very friendly and accommodating. She did let us know about baby gates inside the home, but there just wasn't enough space for the kids to play and move around. I mostly fed my 1 year old outside to avoid getting food on any of the rugs. Hoping this review will help others with small and active children to make a more comfortable choice.

5/5 Excellent

Great Experience
We had a great experience! The owner stopped by right away and answered all our questions and offered some places to go! My friends and I loved the property! Super cozy and perfect for what we had planned.

5/5 Excellent

Girl's weekend
The house we rented for our "girl's weekend" was just as we expected, we had seven women and it accommodated us very well for enough beds and bathrooms. We were able to all gather in the living room comfortably. The location worked for us to be able to attend Chanhassen dinner theater, check out events and shops in the surrounding area. The kitchen has everything we needed. The deck was a great place to sit to enjoy a breeze and a view of the lake. The one suggestion would be to have a list of places to eat from personal recommendations, events, places to check out, when you're not familiar with the area it would be a great list to guide the guests. Our group would stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Owner is wonderful!!
