Why Naomi or Bernie Iserman chose Garrison

Bernie and I originally came up North to work with a camp called Timber Bay, a retreat center particularly for hurting youth but also for church and other various retreats. We live adjacent to Timber Bay and have made this our home. We originally built the vacation rental home for our retirement. It is only 5 miles from our home and we enjoy the creativity it takes to keep it up and running, for guests who come up North for their vacation. The new constructed part of it is about 7 years old.

What makes this cabin unique

The benefits include living next to a very popular vacation spot but also having the privacy and peace and quiet of the north woods. Its a 1 minute drive to the beach and wonderful activities around the Lake. We are surrounded by a variety of eateries, ATV and hiking and biking trails and beautiful sunsets and a star lit sky that will take your breath away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks! Cozy getaway for us. There was room to run for our toddler, and ample game playing space in the kitchen. All the essentials were available, and we enjoyed the fresh snow on the nearby roads. Great for a leisurely walk and pulling the granddaughter on a sled. Surrounded by a beautiful north woods.

Owner's Response: Very enjoyable having guests like Russ and Deb. We always hope they make themselves at home and they do. They had a creative plan, and made the most of it. Our home can be a place of rest and a launching pad for lots of activities around the lake and all- day excursions. it doesn't take much to investigate and share our knowledge of upcoming events. We are always willing to do so.

Excellent Cabin to Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Overall had a great experience at Naomi or Bernie's Cabin. Their downstairs is very nice and is great for playing cards. Naomi was great at communicating and was extremely nice. The cabin is very secluded for neighbors which our group enjoyed. They have a wonderful bonfire pit and are located not too far from Twin Pines Resort. Overall, our group really enjoyed our stay here. Thanks so much Naomi and Bernie!!

Very well maintained, clean property!

Very nice property located away from other properties far enough so you felt like you had some privacy. Has all the amenities you would need and the owners are both super-nice, friendly people. If we go to that area again we would definitely try to book it again!

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came up for a weekend away to fish and celebrate my upcoming wedding with the best gal in the world! The cabin felt like a home away from home. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and plan on returning myself. Naomi and Bernie went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and were set up for a great time. The house was in good distance to several different fishing areas and was its little own enclosed hideaway from daily life hussle. Thank you again for the great weekend!
