Great cabin

  • 4 of 5

Really, the only sort-of complaint we have is that the yard could use some work. The cabin itself was great; it was spacious enough for the four of us, and we could have easily fit one or two more people. It was also close to grocery shopping and gas stations, which was nice.

Great cabin on Lake Emily

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my daughter and I spent a weekend here and enjoyed everything about it. The cabin is air conditioned and well designed. It was very comfortable and inviting and the owners made it easy to enjoy ourselves. My only complaint is we could not stay longer - it was a quick getaway for us. The cabin is conveniently located just 3 hours north of the cities - less if you live in a northern suburb. We took the advice the owners provided and purchased our meat for grilling at the local meat market - it was great! The cabin is close to town but secluded enough to feel away from it all. It was Emily days so we listened to the music at a nice distance and enjoyed the fireworks from the dock. There is a great fire pit and a lot of wood around to burn so we did that both evenings.

The cabin is spacious on the main floor that is finished but it is also for sale with a lot of space that could be finished both upstairs and in the basement. We used the boat and while it is small it was perfect for our purposes. The dock is located at the bottom of some steep stairs but the owners have also created a nice sloping path down to the water. Either way however it is an uphill climb coming back to the cabin.

We would definitely return and loved the window looking at to the lake. It was a peaceful way to wake up looking out to the lake. Weather was great. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to families.

Thanks much for the hospitality.

Peaceful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at this cabin on Lake Emily. The cabin was well equipped with every thing we needed. The beds were comfortable and the updated kitchen was great to cook in.

The owner happened to be there when we arrived and was very accommodating to all of our questions. A canoe, paddle boat and small fishing boat are available for use. My only suggestion would be to trim some of the smaller trees so that there was a better view of the lake from the deck.

no surprises

Just like advertised, with no surprises. A quiet comfortable cabin with a great view of the lake. A wood stove made the evenings even more comfortable . Fishing was good.

Over all it was a very pleasant cabin although work was unfinished upstairs and basement which could

I did leave a note on some things that I thought should be discarded but will state it here also. The kitchen could have been cleaner and dishes and utencils and pots and some baking sheets were in poor condition. Also some" kitchen appliances" were in cabinets very old and could be a fire hazard. Some over the counter Meds were in bathroom drawers outdated and should not be left for other renters. Lawn wasn't mowed before we arrived. Nice that extra bedding is left in closets but were not folded and on shelves just stuffed in closets so didn't use them.Otherwise we enjoyed our stay .Thank you

Roomy, comfortable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a secluded cabin and this was it...without being secluded. It's location on the lot gave us the seclusion we were looking for without the isolation. The cabin (still in progress of being completed on lower and upper levels) had plenty of space and comfort. Unfortunately, August in MN means the lakes aren't great for swimming but the views are still wonderful! Plenty to do and enjoy in the area. We had a great time!
