Great place to stay with a family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this house with our three young children. The house was very clean and worked well for our family. Having Mike and Ann next door was nice and we visited with them several times over our 4 night stay.

The front porch was great and we made use of it for coffee in the morning and relaxing in the evening. We spent 2 days in Itasca State Park and one day biking on the Heartland Trail. Having the house close the park/playground was another perk for us as we took our kids to it a few evenings.

We normally make our own meals when renting houses and have at times had to deal with sparse utensils and pots. The kitchen in this house was well stocked and had everything we needed.

We will be staying here again when we return to Park Rapids in the future.

Eight is Great!

  • 5 of 5

Imagine 8 sisters all under one roof getting together to celebrate a family wedding, share stories, laugh, drink coffee, relax, and reminisce. The fact that it was the weekend of their Mom's 90th birthday was the "icing on the wedding cake"!

Thanks to Ann and Mike Johnson of Park Rapids and this home with the river view we were able to make it happen.

The kitchen table was greatly used, the beds were comfortable, the shower was great, there was an abundance of towels, sheets, etc., and the decor was very inviting and unique. As the California sister said, "it felt just like being at home"!

We would recommend this property for families and groups looking for a place to stay!

Thanks from The 8 Terhark sisters!!

The owners live across the street and are extremely accommodating and friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We went to MN for my GMA memorial. We were worried the place would not house the 6 of us. The pics do not do this place justice. This place could comfortably sleep 8. It was spotless. It has two living areas and a large eat in kitchen. After the memorial we had the family come back to our place. We had 32 ppl over for a bbq. We sat in the beautiful private yard and grilled out. Not one time did we feel overcrowded. We were short on a few chairs, so the owners gave us the chairs right off their patio! Such friendly owners. So pleased!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was very cozy and comfortable with great indoor and outdoor places to relax. We found it to be very well stocked and immaculately clean. We enjoyed the nearby walking trails and park, as well as walking downtown. Being close to the center of town made it easy to find our way to stores, restaurants, Itasca State Park and anything we needed. Ann and Mike were great to work with and we would be happy to stay there if we are in the area again!
