Why stay with Us

  • Our properties are more affordable than you might think.
  • Our lake houses are spacious and comfortable, while also offering privacy for guests.
  • Our fully equipped kitchens allow you to prepare meals, saving money by not having to go out to eat. We also have BBQ grills if you’d prefer to cook outdoors.
  • You don’t have to leave to find something to do. You can enjoy the lake, fish, canoe, or just relax by the campfire. Try to do that in a hotel room! We even provide the boat and canoes. In the winter time, you can ride your snowmobiles from the front door to the trail systems.
  • You don’t have to go to bed when the kids do. With separate bedrooms, the kids can be put down for the evening, while the adults can continue on with evening activities.
  • We have a washer and dryer in each of our lake houses, with detergent. This is an excellent on-site convenience for our guests.
  • You don’t have to worry about hearing the guests next-door, through the walls.
  • Your pet can vacation with you. Kennel fees are expensive, and most hotels won’t permit pets as guests.
  • You have 24×7 access to the owner, with just a simple phone call. If an issue arrives during your stay, we’ll act quickly to ensure a quick remedy.
  • You and your family can start a family tradition Up North, by staying at our lake houses!
