Overview

Photos and Description of this Lake Shore holiday cabin

5,400 fsq. 3b,4ba,4+car garage,4 filreplace.7decks,dock,2kitchens

Gull Lake Cabin in the woods sits in a Prime Location on a channel with access to Gull Lake. Our Cabin is right in the middle of the famous Gull Lakes Vacation area. Just a few steps from Bar Harbor and short walk to Zorbaz Restaurant.

The 5400 sq feet Cabin has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It includes 7 decks, a dock,King size beds in all bedrooms, 2 Master Suites-- each with 2 decks,fireplace, Jacuzzi,and 2 separate shower heads--2 kitchens,Table tennis,Billiard table ,Internet,Library, office, and a dinning. Additional sleeping options include a Queen pull out sofa, an additional double high queen air mattress and two large couches.Granite counter tops, hickory doors and trim. The floors are hardwood and porcelain tile.

The Gull Lake chain with all its connecting channels, is so unique and romantic compared to other Minnesota Lakes. We fell in love with our backyard, where we get to hear the Loons and even watch them raise their baby Loons. They are so special and the chicks know by instinct to crawl up on their moms back to enjoy the ride around the lake.

Good restaurants. Good summer fishing. Great access for snow sports, like snowmobiling,cross country skiing and ice fishing. Perfect location for anglers in the World's largest ice fishing contest.

Why Eddy Silker chose Minnesota

I grow up on the lake. at 18 years old I owned an operated a resort name after me 'Eddy's'. I built and ran a fishing guild business on Mille Lacs lake.

The last 20 years I live in Gull Lake and love every minute of it.

Beautiful house with lots of room. 8 girls enjoyed the house for a girls weekend.

  • 1 of 5

The house was beautiful but neglected for quite some time. Woodwork was not clean and lots of cobwebs. Showers had not been scrubbed out in a while. Lime and calcium deposits on the shower heads prohibited the water to come out. Had to use finger nail to scrap off the deposits in order for water to come out. There is a wood shoot in the garage where I think mice are getting into the house. We actually watched the mice run around! We were unable to use the lower level of the house because of the mice problem. Think there may be a nest in the sleeper sofa. Found mouse dropping in downstairs bed and on the downstairs couch in addition to the clean bath towels in the upper level.

I have rented a lot of VRBO and the owners stuff is always in a locked area. In this house the owners stuff was everywhere. There was not an open clean drawer or closet to put anything.

We washed the dishes in the kitchen before we used anything as they were not clean. What we used is clean now and we left the place in better shape than we found it.

Floors had not been scrubbed in a while. We were asked to not wear our shoes in the house but our feet would have been black if we had not wore our shoes.

Location was great. Walking distance to two great places to eat. Zorba's and Bar Harbor food was excellent.

Upstairs beds were wonderful and the view was great!

Beautiful place for a memorable proposal!

  • 5 of 5

Modern lake house with a giant kitchen (actually 2 kitchens!), built in grill on the patio. As you walk into the home, you're greeted with a beautiful view of large trees that allow the peeps of lake through. You'll immediately notice the wide open floor plan which allows all guests to feel a part of conversation any where you may be on the main floor level whether you're in the living room, kitchen or even on the deck that wraps around the back of the house.

Upstairs has 2 master bedrooms. Our room had a very comfortable, pillowy mattress along with a down comforter I did not want to get out of. There was also a cozy fireplace and balcony that could have kept me in the bedroom the entire trip. Our bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and large shower.

We booked the lake house with 4 other couples. One of the guys had planned on proposing to his girlfriend and we were all in on it. We sent the couple to town to grab some marshmallows for the fire pit while the rest of us set up tea candles up and down the staircase that led to the dock as well large candles on the dock itself. By the time the couple returned, we sat waiting around the fire pit and told the couple we forgot something over by the dock. When they proceeded to head over we snuck back to the patio to watch his proposal unravel beautifully. The patio was a perfect place to watch as it sat on top of the hill above the dock. The house has Internet access so we were able to play the song my friend wanted to play in the background as he proposed to our other friend.

The stay at this home was definitely fun and comfortable, but most of all it was memorable. The owners were aware of our plan ahead of time and welcomed us to do anything we needed to ensure everthing went smoothly.

Thank you Eddy & Anita for a very hospitable experience!

Great cabin for entertaining!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this cabin for a girls weekend with 12 girls. There was plenty of room for us cook, hang out, and play games--we even did yoga in the basement! All of the linens were clean and comfortable. We utilized the big beautiful kitchen most of the time. The cabin is on Gull lake which we took advantage of. It is walking distance to Bar Harbor and Zorbaz. Eddy was so knowledgable of helpful during our stay! I highly recommend this cabin if you're looking for a Beautful and updated cabin to stay in.

Fantastic Gull Lake Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely perfect. Huge cabin within walking distance to Zorbaz, Bar Harbor, and Gull Lake Marina. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we had plenty of room to sleep 10 guys. If we're ever up there again for our annual reunion we'll make sure to book here again.
