This lake cabin completely exceeded our expectations and the location and property grounds was serene and peaceful. My boyfriend and I love road trips, especially during this time of year (Autumn) -- so driving a little over 4 hours from the Twin Cities was a piece of cake for us. I sort of love that Nancy didn't post too many more photos as we were pleasantly surprised to find so much more (namely a giant wood burning fireplace).
This home has everything you could possibly want in terms of amenities and I'd consider it "rustic luxe" as it's cozy, low key, and absolutely wonderful. We wish we could have taken advantage of the dock, but alas winter is coming so we understand why it wasn't there. We attempted to canoe, but the wind made the lake extra choppy so we played it safe. We loved being able to see the stars at night over the lake, were able to fish on a nearby river, and stopped into a local pub for lunch and a game of pool.
Nancy was incredibly responsive and we could tell that this lake cabin is a special place for her and her family. We loved the books, board games, paintings, old maps, and many seating areas. I hope to rent this place again and bring my friends/family with next time. Thanks again, Nancy! We had an amazing weekend getaway!
