About Mark Nowlin

The Doll House on the Point is enjoyed by two families. Two brothers and their wives decided they wanted a place for all the kids, cousins, and friends to grow up fishing, swimming, tubing, waterskiing and to spend more time as a family.

Mark Nowlin purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Only steps from the beach and water and lake views from every room! 2 kayaks with paddles and a pedal boat are included..

Beautiful home, beautiful property and fun town to visit!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, comfortable for a large family group! The beach is great for kids....nice sandy beach. It was a great place to relax and kickback after a fun day on the beach and the daily trip in to town for ice cream! Would definitely recommend! Planning to return again next year with family and friends!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Come back every year for family reunion {80 people}! Always have a wonderful time! Beautiful beach and water on three sides of a well shaded point perfect for a picnic! Beautiful house can accommodate large or small groups easily. Lake views from all sides. You can hear the Frogs in the back bay at night croaking which is a sign of clean water. Great Bass and Walleye lake! We'll be going back again and again.

All day in the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with the 12 of us at the lake. It is hard to find such large properties to rent for our annual college reunion of friends (kids tag along too). We spend most of our time in the water swimming, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, and catching frogs. The kids run from finished meals, put on their life jackets, and head to the beach to play every day. No screens. Hurray. We prefer to stay in and cook due to the large group size. The kitchen was stocked really well and we used the Weber grill every day. Most of our meals were spent on the huge deck facing the water. Amazing views. I think that is the biggest bald eagle I have ever seen. Thanks for a great lake house. We'll be back next summer for sure.

Completely DIALED IN!

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculate. You just can't beat the location. The sandy beach is huge and happens to be one of the very best fishing spots on the lake. We found all the furnishings to be in operational order and enjoyed the new gas Webber Grill. The house itself is well maintained and clean. We were asked by the manager provide him feedback on the beds since they had recently changed all the mattresses... 5 star!

If looking at this property for your family, do not hesitate as you'll love it. No surprise they have many advanced bookings.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family gathering of 10 adults and 6 kids. The beach was great for the kids to play on. And we spent a ton of time on the large deck that faces the water. The Nowlin's were great to keep in touch with. We would definitely stay again!

Absolutely stunning location, plenty of space both inside and outside!

  • 5 of 5

The entire operation is run like a well oiled machine, allowing us to focus on the vacation itself instead of the details such as payments, property access, etc. The property is amazing, and a pretty quick drive from the Twin Cities. There was ample space inside the house, and very clear instructions for who to contact if any issues should arise.

Simply put, I would love to use this rental again, and recommend it to anyone!
