About the property

Life simply doesn't get any better than this!

I am still trying to decide which season is my favorite at Izatys!

Once the snow falls, the resort is transformed into a winter wonderland! Besides ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing, we also have some of the finest cross country ski trails in the entire state! You can chose to relax by the fire, or get out in the snow and enjoy everything Minnesota winters have to offer!

Spring is a magical time to spend watching the glistening mountains of ice break up on the lake. Each day your view will change and you are sure to see something new!

In the summer, you can play a round of golf on our fabulous golf course one day and rent a boat from the marina the next! You and your family should be able to get their fill of swimming in the lake and in the pool.

At the end of the day, fry up your catch in the full kitchen or try your hand at BBQing it on the charcoal grill. If the weather is nice, you can dine on the porch or fold up the table and bring it lakeside!

If you don't feel like cooking, it's a very short walk to our award winning restaurant or there are many popular restaurants in the nearby towns!

After dinner, you can play tennis or our favorite, pickle ball and then enjoy the sunset from the living room, screen porch or on the master bedroom balcony.

As the night's cool air sets in, start a fire in the stone fireplace or head out under the stars to one of the out door fire pits to roast marshmallows and tell tall tales.

Fall is simply stunning! Along with the beautiful changing colors, the sunsets are absolutely outstanding! You will want to pack your golf clubs and fishing pole! Fall is a perfect time to roast hot dogs lakeside on the bon fire:)

As you can see, ANYTIME of year is a great time to be at Izatys! If it rains, you can always try your luck at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs just 20 minutes away and they will even come and pick you up and drop you off at our door;)

About Betsy Russ

My husband and I have been married for 35 years and have 5 children. Over the past few years, our family has grown and we now have 5 grandchildren:)

Betsy Russ purchased this villa in 2014

Why Betsy Russ chose Onamia

When I was a child, my parents brought me to Izatys, so I have many happy memories here! When my husband Tim and I started our family, we continued the tradition my parents had started and we brought our small children to Izatys. This all ended when Dorthy and Jerry Dubbs sold the resort we had known and loved...Somehow, it just wasn't the same. So, we started traveling the country, always in search of the perfect resort but each time, something seemed to be missing...Ironically, two years ago, we returned to Izatys on a whim for a short get away, and we were delighted to discover what we were searching for was here at Izatys all the time! Once again we are continuing the tradition and we are making wonderful new memories with our grandchildren:)

What makes this villa unique

The lake has this magical feel about it and it reminds me of being at the ocean! It is constantly changing and It is ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL!

As far as the villa is concerned, what can I say! I put a lot of thought into decorating it and hopefully you will enjoy it! We find it a most relaxing place to stay! My husband and I could listen to the waves for hours. During the time we have stayed here, we discovered there is a popular fishing hole straight out from our door so we always know when the fish are biting because sometimes the boats stay in that spot for hours!

Every trip into any of the nearby towns is an adventure with wonderful restaurants to try and charming shops along the way. We make it a special point to go into Isle on Saturdays for the Farmers Market. We love getting fresh eggs and fresh asparagus among other things:) Teals Grocery Store in Isle is wonderful so I don't feel like I have to shop before we leave. They have it all and is quite reasonably priced for a resort area!

When it comes right down to it, I haven't found anything I don't like about owning at Izatys. In fact, the most difficult thing about being there is knowing one day I will have to go home.

We hope you will enjoy our lake home just as much as we do and feel free to make it your home away from home during your stay!

I would definitely recommend this property. Everything we needed for our stay was there, and Debbie & Tim's property was stunning! Thanks again!

Beautiful, comfortable and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is the nicest we've stayed in at Izaty's. The decor is fresh and bright, and the owners made sure we felt welcome with extra touches like games, sporting items, toys for the kids and even champagne! Great new kitchen with everything we needed to "eat in." The enclosed porch is bright and clean with comfy furniture. A perfect place to enjoy the our family and beautiful Lake MilLacs!

My family had a wonderful time at Debbie & Tim's beach villa!

  • 5 of 5

The lake was gorgeous and only a few feet out the back door! The beach theme throughout the home added to the beauty of the location. Izaty's is a beautiful resort! Thanks so much!!

Very nice home, resort needs attention

  • 4 of 5

I give this property, with regard to the rental unit, a 10! The owners are fantastic, respond quickly, very informative and their unit is very nice and relaxing (great decor!). I was on vacation with four twelve year old boys and two teenagers. The resort is under brand new ownership, so there was little planned for families here. No paddle boards, no fun events...all attention from the resort focused on golfers. Too bad because the pool was great and the location wonderful. All in all it was a nice time. Thank you Tim and Debbie!

Charming lakeside town home

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay in this very well equipped lakeside home. Just my wife and I stayed but the home could easily accommodate another couple or kids. Golf and the marina are a two minute walk and the lake 100 feet from the back porch. Great views and quite peaceful.

Car: recommended

Rent a boat at the Marina or just a slip if you bring your own. You can purchase bait and gas there too. Plenty to do in the area, Kathio and Father Hennepin State parks for hiking & cross country skiing, or bike the Soo Line Trial to Isle. There's also a shuttle to Grand Casino Mille Lacs for the gamblers. Try the Spirit Lake Steak House for a nice dinner Mugg's if you wanted a great burger:)
