    Wonderful vacation!

    We had a great vacation here. Owners were excellent. We fished, had a campfire, relaxed and basically had the lake to ourselves. Loved hearing the loons and even saw an eagle. I would recommend this property to everyone!

    Perfect Cabin for a Getaway

    We could not have asked for a better rental experience. The beds were heavenly, the kitchen well-stocked with the essentials, and the cabin was comfortable. The dirt road was perfect for walking the dogs. We loved the gas stove which provided a cozy visual charm as well as heat to the cabin.

    Perfect!

    Our stay in Makinen was perfect! We enjoyed the beautiful, quiet location. The lake was great for fishing, kayaking, swimming, etc. Ed & Sandy's home was a great fit for an extended stay with family...clean, plenty of activities to keep us entertained and an overall beautiful location! I would highly recommend this getaway!

    Second time just as pleasant as the first

    We've been looking forward all year to returning to Sandy and Ed's lake cabin at Makinen. It was worth the wait. The lake was quiet and pretty, the backyard full of birds, and the comfortable beds made for a restful week. Thanks for making the lake cabin available for a happy time.

    Great Cabin!

    Very quiet with fantastic fishing! The beach was perfect for swimming. It’s off the beaten path so come prepared but the quiet is so relaxing.
