average rating of 5.0 based on 13 reviews

Very well maintained, and furnished.

  • 5 of 5

I liked nearly everything about this property. The only very slightly negative is that I could wish for a more comfortable couch and loveseat. I would definitely stay again.

We had "girls weekend" there and had a BLAST! The house is very clean and well maintained. Well stocked and the owners have thought of all the details, large and small. Great owners! We'll be back!

Very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending the week after Christmas at the cabin. The lake was frozen, and it was snowy. We got another 6 inches of snow while we were there. It was beautiful: cold outside and cozy inside! Brenda was super nice and easy to work with!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well kept with comfortable beds. There had been a blizzard 4 days before so the drive and front stoop were ice but we bought some softening salts that cleared it up. The property itself is well taken care of and beautiful. We're so grateful we found this place, as it allowed us to be able to afford to come see my grandmother before she passed. We look forward to renting it again in the future

Very nice cabin, roomy, lots of decks and windows facing Lake Minnewaska.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Lake Minnewaska. The cabin is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Nice yard, good dock with a bench for reading or fishing or just to enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding beauty. Wonderful sunrises and sunsets. Nice refrigerators. The washer and dryer was very handy. It seemed we had everything we needed right at our fingertips. TV was great, showers were wonderful and my husband could not get enough of the jacuzzi bath. He also caught some bass and a northern he did not keep but kept a couple of walleye that we had for one meal all off of the dock. The new picnic table was very nice, the decks were nice. We did figure one thing out after our first night; the mattresses were so comfortable we need to go buy new ones. I give this five stars because I believe it definitely deserves that rating.

Wonderful Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home on beautiful Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood, MN a number of times. The house is always clean and is well furnished and very functional. It is in a very quiet area. The new picnic table is a great upgrade and we ate out there most evenings. We also enjoyed the gas grill. The sunsets from the deck or from the dock are gorgeous! We were fortunate that the lake was very calm for us this year and allowed the young adults (and older adults!) some quality time on the paddleboards we brought with us. The lake is very clean and was perfect temp this year for water sports. Fishing off the dock was a little slow at times but in the evenings we had great luck - caught Sunnies, Bass and Northern. We did have one day of rain and the big patio doors allowed us to enjoy the rain and the cool day while we played card and board games in the house. Five STARS from us! Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
