Holiday Rental House
Welcome to our lake home, sitting on over 560’ of pine-studded lakeshore at the end of a point on Sand Lake (40 miles NW of Grand Rapids). The 1800 SF rustic-modern cedar home sits on a low bluff with stunning views of lake, island, and forest in all directions. Early risers can catch the sunrise through the bedroom windows, then at night watch glorious, drawn-out sunsets unfold through the great room and screen porch windows. (It's also great fun to watch storms roll in, as we have miles of unobstructed lake view to the northwest!) Sleep to the call of the loon and watch bald eagles perch in front of your eyes.

Canoe or boat to five other lakes from our dock; there is an excellent boat landing nearby for your boat and we provide a canoe)--or if you want a change of scene, trailer your boat to nearby Winnie or Bowstring lakes. Fish for walleye, largemouth, northern, sunfish, crappie, and perch. Make pizza & bread in the outdoor adobe oven. Relax on the deck or screen porch only 45’ from water’s edge; woods on both sides offer complete privacy. House has an open floor plan and natural stone fireplace. The huge master suite w/Jacuzzi was the living room of the original 1942 cottage, has a romantic vintage feeling with log beams overhead. Upstairs bedroom opens onto balcony with a window seat. Huge picture windows are new in 2013. All furnished with antiques & collectibles, hand-woven rugs, and original artworks. There are two queen beds, with an airbed available if more sleeping space is needed. It is our little bit of Paradise, and we would love to share it with you!More

CPo -:- Tulsa, OK
Beautiful home situated on a quiet point on a well situated lake in Minnesota. Who could ask for anything more? Incredible views from the large front window, the screen porch (great when the mosquitoes come out) and the front deck. No need to go any further than the house :) But, if you do venture out of the house the entire property is beautiful with great views (loons and eagles too!). I sat and "read" a book for most of a day, the views were so breathtaking and the spot so peaceful that I only got a couple pages completed but my blood pressure and heart rate got to a all time low! Sunset, wow, sitting on the front porch, down by the dock, inside the screen porch or just by the fireplace. Tried 'em all and they all took my breath away. We seemed to take pictures every night! Love how the house faces the sunset. Storming? No worries, sit inside with a fire and watch a storm come over the lake. Ends up being just as fun as a beautiful day on the lake. Perfect location, you can see the boats from the house, but they can't see you! You can take a short boat trip around the point or a longer day trip to the main part of the lake, Eagles and Loons abound. Don't forget sandwiches and have a picnic on the lake! Clean home, beautiful artwork and furnishings. Much more than just a lake cabin, more like a beautiful, loved home. Your kids driving you crazy? Beautiful views from the master bedroom (with jacuzzi) too! Go "take a nap" and just sit and enjoy the view in peace. Lots of places on the property to spread out and enjoy family time or peace and quiet. Lots of great walks nearby as well. Can't wait to go back!

A wonderful house in a wonderful setting -:- Granbury, Texas
My wife and I so enjoyed our time in the Stones' house on a lake. It is beautiful with all the needs any visitor could want. I enjoyed boating on the lake, seeing eagles and other creatures. The folk we encountered in the area were all friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the local church. We would return to that house in a heartbeat. Joey and Brenda Jeter
