  • Relaxing time together


    We didn’t have great weather but we’re still able to fish, have a fire, grill, take the dog for a walk or two and head to town for cheese curds. We watched movies, read books and loved the comfort and coziness of the cabin. Lake Nelson is beautiful and the fish were biting! This cabin was just what my family needed to wrapUp our summer.

  • Great stay


    First time with a VRBO. Seamless check in. Had a small bacon frying incident that set of smoke detector. Propery manager texted to find out if things were okay. Yup. Not used to electric stovetops. Only question is to potability of water. A sign in the property says plates and utensils are not sanitized and gives a recommendation as to how to do this. Unsure if this is a COVID related proceedure, drinking and rinse water, or just a department of health requirement. Either way no issues. Very cool coffee mugs. Very enjoyable albeit too short of a stay.

    Manager's Response:

    "From the owner: "The water is potable; it is tested for bacteria by the County Health Services annually, as part of the licensure process. Additionally, the utensil sign is a requirement of the County Health Services and has nothing to do with the specific condition of flatware at the cabin. Thanks, we like our coffee mugs as well; thanks for noticing. Thank you for staying with us."

  • Third annual Dad’s get away with the kids


    Everything was nice, neat, and in excellent working condition. Plenty of space for the six of us. Overall, there were no complaints from the kids, but I wish that the grass would of been cut so there could of been a little less mosquitoes.

  • Cute cabin


    Cabin has a nice cozy rustic feel. Beautiful view of lake Nelson. Plenty of amenities to cook with, and games, etc to entertain ourselves. Wood fireplace in living room would have been nicer if there was more than 4 sticks of wood. There was also a large ant problem for our stay. Luckily there was ant killer in the cabin, worked a little but not what we were hoping to deal with on our anniversary get away. Other than that, it was a nice stay.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Michele, we are glad to hear the cabin was nice and cozy for you. We are sorry that you experienced some issues during your stay and wish you had reached out to us while you were there. The owner would like to share the following:
    - The listing does not state that wood is provided for the fireplace. The four sticks of wood that were in the home were left by previous guests and can be purchased in town. We will update the listing to reflect this for future guests.
    - Ants can sometimes be prevalent in the area due to the home being located in the woods. We have since contacted the local pest control and the issue has been resolved.
    Thanks for your valuable feedback as we continue to improve for future guests!
