About Linda

After many hectic years in the Twin Cities, moved 'Up North' to enjoy a more laidback lifestyle. Nothing seems quite as urgent when you are on the water.

Linda purchased this house in 1995

Why Linda chose Minnesota

We built two homes on this peninsula in the mid-1990s. My husband and I live in one of the homes. Friends and family stay in the cabin when they visit (it's actually a year-round home - we just call it 'the cabin'). We hadn't made use of the cabin as much as we once did, so in 2007 we decided to open up our cabin as a vacation home rental.

What makes this house unique

I love summer nights that are just the right temperature to leave the windows open, and then listen to the loons call to each other in the morning. There is no better way to wake up.

In MN for work

  • 5 of 5

We had to work in the area for a little more than a month. It was great to move out of the hotel and into a real house with a real kitchen, and plenty of room. The five of us were very comfortable. The owners were easy to work with. We managed to grill out a lot and had a few fires, too.

Brookings Family Together Again!

Thanks for the amazing week spent with family! We did lots of fishing, swimming, eating & drinking! :) The weather was perfect all week and we made great campfires at night. The dock make an outstanding place for practicing fishing and jumping into the lake. Thanks again!

It was so nice to spend time here with family instead of getting rooms in a hotel. We had great weather + fishing was awesome, too! This may become a family tradition for us!

Cannot say enough about how accommodating the facility and owners are. The cabin had everything we needed, and the location couldn't have been any better. Thanks for having us, and allowing us to create some great memories here!
