Just a snapshot of the variety of things you can do.


We had a wonderful weekend at the cabin! The photos on the website do a great job of showing you what you'll get. The cabin is beautifully decorated and clean. However, we spent very little time inside. Instead we spent our time on the screened in porch, in the hammock, fishing from the boat dock and on the beach. Our dogs ran up and down the beach and swam continuously for two days. You will not find a more beautiful beach and lake in Minnesota! And rest assured, the website isn't hiding other cabins that share the beach--its all yours! We hope to return next summer for a week.

We really enjoyed the lake and all it had to offer. The sand on the beach was perfect. We fished, tubed on the boat, and had bonfires every night. We had a blast. There is so much to do, whether it was kayaking, boating, lounging on the beach or having nightly dinners on the porch. It was a great time and we have many memories to take with!

What a beautiful weekend getaway! The pictures on the website do great justice, but experiencing it for yourself is something special! Our kids (7, 8 and 10) were in the lake from morning ‘til sundown! All the amenities (water trampoline, canoe, kayak, paddle boat) made this the perfect water adventure playground for all of us! The beach is gorgeous, very private and clean and invites you to sit, watch some Loons, read, or just relax and enjoy a breathtaking sunset or evening bonfire! We spent 4 days at the cabin, and immediately wished for more time! My nephew declared that he was going to come back here every weekend now!  The cabin itself is charming, cozy and inviting, and the three-season porch hosted all of our meals and card games - complete with fresh air and a little breeze. The lake is crystal clear and a lot of fun to explore. One night, while out on a “sunset cruise,” we discovered a huge Bald Eagle’s nest high up in a Nordic Pine on the little Goat Island.  We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends! We can’t wait to visit again! What a hidden gem!

What a perfect MN vacation spot! We loved every minute of our week long stay. Our two year old daughter couldn't get enough of playing in the water and making sandcastles. The gradual slope from the beach into the lake was perfect for a toddler. We feel very lucky to have stumbled across your website. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful cabin with us, we look forward to returning next year.

We really enjoyed our time at your cabin. It was cozy with a great beach that was perfect for our 3 year old and 5 year old (and a 34 and 36 year old). We swam every day, made s'mores every night and the porch was great for coffee, board games and dinner. My son declared your cabin "The best hotel ever!" Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!

Thanks for the great time and sharing your cabin. We hope to come back next year, and stay longer!

We had such a great time at your cabin! The kayak and paddle boat were definitely a hit! The beach is so beautiful and entertaining. We loved swimming in the clear water to the jump tramp. We also ventured to Itasca State Park and saw the headwaters of the Mississippi. The Mexican restaurant in Dorset was awesome! We will definitely recommend this cabin and hope to come back!

We had a great time here. We were able to relax, swim, fish, and take in all the local charm. We had a blast biking on the Heartland Trail. My 3 year old caught her first FISH! The food in Dorset is great - we went to the Mexican restaurant and had pizza at the Dorset House. We look forward to making this a family tradition!
