  • Very nice getaway


    Stayed for 3 nights in September. House had everything needed for a nice getaway. Sauna was hot, fire pit was perfect with firewood on-site. House well stocked, clean and inviting. Site was quiet. Highly recommend this rental.

  • Enjoyable stay


    Overall the place was better than expected. Nice setting. Enjoyed outdoor seating by firepit. It's a gas grill which is nice. Appreciated the spices and such in well appointed kitchen. It was conveniently located for all we wanted to do. We didn't use the sauna, but it looked cute. The down side, there were a lot of mosquitoes. It would be ideal if could do more to minimize. We had a good laugh about the "squishy toilet seat". That was the joke of the weekend. If you were to do more upgrades, ditch the toilet seat. Overall a great experience.

    Had a wonderful cousins weekend. Would have been better if we didn't have a major snow storm. It was quite and nice.

    This spot is perfect for a weekend away in the beautifully quaint town of McGrath. We were drawn by the sauna and proximity to the Soo Line Trail and neither disappointed. The sauna is beautiful and heats up real nice. There is an outdoor firepit that the host keeps well stocked with wood and we were even able to get a small fire going in a full-blown snow storm! The house is clean and designed with love. The kitchen is FULLY stocked with all the supplies a cook could desire, including a pizza oven?! Plus there were plenty of condiments / coffee / teas / and snacks generously offered by the host! We spent one day snowshoeing in Mille Lacs (just about a 45 min drive) and the second day we hiked the Soo Line and the surrounding forests as it proceeded to snow ALL DAY LONG. After a long afternoon of frolicking in in waist deep snow, we stumbled into Pour Lewey's (just a short jaunt from the VRBO) and we were welcomed by some friendly local color.

    Our host was generous, kind, friendly and attentive. He apologized for the snow - though of course he had no control over it and we also loved it! On Sunday morning he was there with his snow blower clearing a path for our departure. Definitely stay here!
