Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The water is so clean and clear. Caught two meals of sunfish and crappies. The house was just right for the 9 of us. Great place for our family get together. We highly recommend it.

Beautiful cabin and lake!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at Gary and Vicki's lake home the last week of June 2018. What a wonderful experience. The lake is exceptionally clear with a great beach area. The kayak and paddleboard made for lots of water entertainment. The cabin was clean and very well stocked from the kitchen to the bathrooms. The screen porch was our morning and evening hangout! The only complaint is the week flew by way too fast!!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 65th anniversary by renting this home on Jewett Lake for a family gathering. The experience was great due in no small part to the wonderful accommodations. We have rented from VRBO happily before, but never have we had a home so well equipped with everything needed and more. This related not only to what was supplied in the house but also to the accessories for enjoyment of the yard and water activities. Gary and Vicki Berdan go beyond what is expected to make the experience of renting this home a positive one.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home on a lovely lake that is crystal clear! Vicki has thought of everything inside, from kitchen to bath, to movies and games. The kayak and paddle board was so fun to use and we enjoyed dinner on the porch and a campfire afterwards every night.

It rained one day so we went into town for some great pizza and beer at Union.

Plenty of fishing off the dock too!

Beautiful home and property made for a perfect week with family.

  • 5 of 5

Very happy we chose this home. Besides being a nice lake the owners stocked a wide variety of items that we may have forgotten for the week. The home made the week perfect, especially when we couldn't be outside. The screen porch was great. The whole cabin had plenty of space for our family, never feeling crowded in any area. The dock and lift were great to have for the boat. The lake toys available were nice to use and the fire pit worked out great. The lake was the perfect depth for all. We caught some nice walleyes, and the portable fish cleaning station with the water pump close to the dock made the fish cleaning great with keeping the mess out of the cabin and easy to clean all up. We'd love to return to this home again.
