About the property

Sweeping Lake And Sunset Views From This 2 Bed 3 Bath Beach Villa

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;)

Beautiful but slightly disappointing

  • 4 of 5

The beach house itself was beautiful and well cared for. We were disappointed by the fact that you couldn't swim in the lake (note on fridge indicated "swim at own risk due to swimmer's itch.). Swimmers itch is spread by a parasite that is commonly found in ducks and water fowl. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and being able to do laundry. Overall a good time, just sad that the kids couldn't enjoy the water as we had hoped.

awesome lake home and resort

  • 5 of 5

one of the best lake homes and resort that i can think of that we have stayed at.great place for relaxing and spending time with family.the resort was perfect because it was really quiet the week we were there( the state fair was going on). the rental offered it all, a few suggestions for the resort-would have been nice if they offered bicycles and jet ski rentals-i heard that they may be renting four wheelers soon. oh and what a beautiful lake it is. charming communities around the area offered a great vibe.

Beautiful villa in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed this 2 BR 2 Bath villa. They did a great job of remodeling! We enjoyed the deck off the master overlooking the lake. We loved that our kids got a separate bedroom and bathroom! It was well appointed with cookware, dishes, shampoo, hair dryer, games, etc. etc. The owner was quick to respond. Everything went smoothly! We would love to return!

Relaxing family getaway spot! Well equipped and clean place. Fantastic sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Spent 4 nights late July and had a great time. The town home was well kept and clean and was well equipped with all the basics for a nice stay. WiFi, cable, and an assortment of movies in case it rains. Also had some kids toys which was good for our youngest. Izaty's pool and golf course served us well, we also rented a pontoon which was a hit for the whole family. Prices on boat rental were competitive for 4hours, but I think were a bit more than other local outfitters for longer rental durations, but convenience was king for us. Would recommend to others and would stay here again.

Wonderful quiet family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this townhome at Izatys! There was plenty of space for everyone and the two levels made for sleeping in if so desired.

The kitchen was so well stocked - I always hesitate cooking away from home but the unit truly had everything we needed. I made a pretty elaborate meal the night we arrived and felt very comfortable in the kitchen!

The beds were quite comfortable and the bedding and towels were perfectly clean. When it came to the things we used in the townhome, everything was well washed. Shampoo and soap were provided, which I appreciated.

The property (Izatys) was nice and we used the pool, kayaks, and walking paths. I did find the golfers to be a bit much, expecting pedestrians to yield to them in their carts. I've been to true 5* resorts with golfers everywhere and they've never been as rude as they were at Izatys. Also, don't think of walking on a cart path (or communal path that is clearly for all patrons if a golf cart is nearby) because apparently that is extremely offensive to these folks. Very strange. This is not the fault of the townhouse owner, but something a renter needs to be aware of. I was verbally accosted (and chased) for running solo on the community path because a cart of golfers didn't want me there. Be aware....

The view from the unit is outstanding and sunsets are STUNNING. We enjoyed the lakefront quite a bit!

This property is an hour's drive from Brainerd so be prepared for that if you're wanting to spend a day or two up there. It wasn't a problem for us, but we thought it was closer.

Most importantly, the owners of this unit are unreal. I've never received a preparation letter like the one from these folks. There were suggestions for dinner, activities, rentals, etc. When I received the welcome letter, I truly felt prepared for the trip - everything we needed to know was included in that. That was so nice!!!

If you're looking for a quiet time away, this is your place!
