Dragonfly Bay

Unbelievable views, kids loved fishing right from the dock. Home far exceeded our expectations. Loved it and the area. Would do it again and absolutely recommend Dragonfly Bay!!

Iffy intro, good stay

Being new to the homeaway experience, I was troubled with the early deal-making. Top of web page said "sleeps 10", and I didn't review fine print to see that more than 8 persons means added fee of $25/day. The details about refunds, etc., came AFTER it was too late to take advantage if we had chosen to do so. Once there, our experience was very good. Exceptionally clean and well equipped. Lighting system in living room is rather confusing. In-process addition or remodeling wasn't stated until we had paid, but no work while we were there and it was not a negative. Shawn, owner, was very cordial and accomodating. No word on refund of our security deposit yet. I found the homeaway "app" rather difficult to use, as cell communication is not my favorite; prefer email!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property, very clean and well stocked with thoughtful extras!

We held our annual girls' winter weekend getaway at the Dragonfly Bay Retreat and had a fabulous time. The house was very clean and nicely decorated, with lots of room for our group! We like to cook together and we were not lacking for cookware and dishes, and even spices and condiments were stocked in case we had forgotten anything. They thought of the little things and had shampoo, soaps, lotions, and plush robes to borrow, helping us to feel right at home. Shawn was very nice to work with in arranging the property and ensuring any questions we might have were addressed. He made a point of checking in with us shortly after we arrived to ensure we gained access to the home and were settling in nicely. I would highly recommend rental of this property! Thank you for your hospitality, Shawn!

Incredible weekend getaway!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Retreat at Dragonfly Bay in Spicer Minnesota, and it was wonderful! When my fiance, six-year-old daughter, and I decided to take a weekend off there was no other place for us. In fact we had to rearrange our schedules twice because both of our first choice weekends were already booked for them. So, instead of taking a lesser place we chose to rearrange our schedules to fit to their availability. It was definitely worth it! The house is beautiful -from the flooring, furniture, walls to the ceiling it is well appointed and cozy. Some of the metallic ceilings are nothing short of amazing! All three bedrooms are different but very comfortable. My fiance and I took the master bedroom which is very elegant; complete with chandelier and over-sized leather recliner- perfect for napping. The second bedroom is called the "Loon Room" because of its loon bedspread and paintings. It is whimsical, spacious, and fun. My daughter loved the third bedroom with its platform bed which she can climb up into and turn into her own individual fort. It was chilly that weekend so we used three of the four fireplaces. The living room and family room both have gas fireplaces which add a warmth visually and thermally. My fiance and I really liked the electric fireplace in the master bedroom as well. It's very realistic and you can choose to turn the heat on or off. The deck is fantastic! It's a great place to sit and lounge overlooking the large, well kept yard, and beautiful lake. It's set up for a much larger group, but we were very comfortable there and were able to have lunch on the deck on the warmer afternoon of our stay. My daughter loved the very big yard and we played lawn darts and bocce ball (provided). It was a little too cool for us to do any fishing or take the provided rowboat out, but we used as many amenities as possible. We tried the workout room and the sauna, used the premium Weber gas grill, and had a movie night in the fabulous party room, watching Hocus Pocus in surround sound on the extremely large TV. My daughter was able to practice her piano lesson on the grand piano, and I was able to defeat my fiance soundly in a game of foos ball. We can't say enough about the house where the owners who were accommodating, friendly, and always ready to answer any questions we had. We recommend this house highly! I wish I could give it more than five stars. It certainly deserves it!
