    Great stay on Rainbow Lake

    This cabin and area was perfect for our family get together. There was enough room for 9 adults. It was comfortable and clean. We were really happy with this property. Paul, the owner was easy to communicate with and answered really fast when I had questions. I recommend this property to people who like to be right on the lake and who like to fish. The fishing was great!

    Cozy and Fun!

The fishing was great and with nearby lakes, we were able to try out a few different fishing holes. This home would be great for family get togethers or just a weekend away!!

    This cabin is everything it says in the listing and more. The property is beautiful and the location could not be better. Despite the cold weather, we had fun using the kayak the owners so graciously supplied, making s'mores at the fire by the water, making snowmen, snowball fights, and more. The beds are very comfortable, everything is perfectly clean. The kitchen has every type of pot, pan, appliance you could ever need to make a nice home cooked meal. Paul was absolutely wonderful in communicating. This was our very first time ever doing a VRBO type rental and Paul was very kind and patient with my questions and confusion. His responses were pretty immediate and he made sure to let us know that he was always available should we need anything. It's been a long time since my family was able to have a vacation but this was the perfect one. We are already talking about coming back again soon as I told my husband that I would rather come back here than go to Hawaii or anywhere else. Thank you so much Paul for giving my family some wonderful memories to cherish and a MUCH needed break from everyday life. Stay safe and thank you so much!!

    Pleasant location and accommodations. But the deck was not completely usable due to wasps and honey bees. We tried to contact the owner regarding the problem. We sent video and images with no response. We took the initiative to spray the area we believed to have the nest. Consequently we were not able to enjoy all the features the house had to offer. Additionally, several of the windows were not working properly.

    We can't thank Lisa and Paul enough for allowing us to share their beautiful mountain cabin! The property was clean and well maintained and Lisa and Paul went out of their way to make sure the accommodations were up to standards. The location of the cabin was ideal! The excursion included our 5 grandchildren ranging in ages 5 to 17 and they thoroughly enjoyed being able to fish practically out the back door. I'm certain none of them had ever spent so much time outdoors! Our 14 year old grandsons said it was the best vacation they have ever had and we agree.

    Lovely View

    The deck and view from this cabin is lovely, the highlight of our stay. Beautiful cottonwood trees and more ducks and geese than you can count. Upon our arrival things looked a little rough as the grass had not been cut but the owner sent someone to cut it first thing the next morning. The property fronts on the lake and the description says you can fish right in our own backyard, but alas, not true. The waters edge is very marshy, weedy and highly fertilized by the water fowl. The clearer waters of Rainbow Lake are not accessible for fishing from this property so fishermen be warned. A dock would solve this problem. During the first few days there was an offensive odor that would come and go throughout the house and we thought there was a problem with the septic tank until the neighbor told us there was no septic system, it was a gas leak. They had had a problem a week or so prior to our arrival and apparently it had not been fixed. We contacted the owner and he had someone come out and repair it. We love to grill. Several days prior to arriving at the cabin I called and asked if the advertised grill was gas. We were pleased to be told that it was but when we went to use it I was extremely disappointed to find it so encrusted with someone's prior dinner(s)it would take hours to make it serviceable. Not how I want to spend precious vacation time. The interior of the cabin is clean. The kitchen has a lot of counter space and it is equipped with most everything you would need. I might suggest putting handles on the cupboards and drawers though in order to access what's inside. Lighting over the sink would be very helpful too. The living room has nice seating but, as with every room in the cabin, there is not a single lamp, not one. Everything is lit with dim overhead ceiling light. There are also, no end tables, coffee tables and only 1 night stand in 1 bedroom. If you enjoy reading you will not find a comfortable place to do so in the evenings. If you are looking for a place to put your alarm clock, glasses, etc. you will have to use the floor. I must say, that this fact was clearly portrayed in the photos but it just didn't occur to me that someone would actually rent a place without these simple amenities, something you would get at a Motel 6. As I said, the best feature of this property was the deck and the view.

    Great cabin rental.....fantastic family experience. What an amazing Memorial Day weekend our family enjoyed at your cabin. The relaxing mountain getaway we were seeking, with all the cozy comforts of home. I had to work while we were at the cabin, and there was plenty of room not to inconvenience everybody else......and Wi-Fi for an easy connection away from the office. My kids thoroughly enjoyed fishing off the shore with their cousins, and the ease of maneuvering kayaks or a small boat into the lake. The cabin view is breathtaking, with enough room on the deck for everybody to enjoy dinner, dice, or kicking back for some downtime. BBQ made easy on the back deck, and the spacious kitchen was stocked with all we might need to prepare anything from a family fiesta to Italian wedding soup. There was plenty of room for a family treasure hunt, horse shoes, parking, and relay races. The tree swing made for hours of laughter over the water. We enjoyed having the option to watch a family movie in the cozy living room, with plenty of room for the entire family sprawl out comfortably. The rooms & loft area upstairs was an awesome feature of this cabin, as we were able to stay up late playing cards or games without disturbing the relaxing slumber of other family and friends. The game cabinet was perfect for a variety of activities including dice, board and card games. I was particularly happy to have the washer and dryer for fishy clothes after a day out on the lake. Everybody enjoyed warm showers.....and the option for A/C if the weather was on the warm side. Thank you! Staying at this cabin was the perfect mountain escape for our family, and we looking forward to coming back again.

    Pines, cool weather and rustic knotty pine log lakefront home set the stage for the escape we enjoyed on our short getaway vacation with hiking and trout fishing. The property was clean and comfortable with amenities of home but with the feel and views of camping out. The two story cabin included, 4 BR, 2 full baths, large kitchen, fireplace, washer/dryer, television etc. There is an expansive back wood deck porch where the grand kids had fun playing and eating smores. You may like to bring a boat; although, rentals are available on the lake. Nearby activities include horseback riding, skiing and plenty of fishing and hunting in season. Dining can be a pizza at the Hut, steak at Cattleman's, or filleted walleye at Charlie Clarks. It was nice of the owners to have a separate refrigerator outside for beverages and freezing our fresh fish. The two juvenile eagles in the huge tree by the lake will be a sight I'll remember forever. Will definitely recommend to our friends.

    This Cabin more than exceeded our expectations. I was a little worried since it was in my hands to find a place for 4 families. Not only was it clean, spacious and very welcoming, our kids had the best time playing on the swing, fishing, watching frogs and beavers right there on the property. Seeing our kids off computers and video games and actually enjoying nature and getting dirty was good for our souls. As for the adults, we fished, played games and enjoyed each others company with the beautiful views! This will be an annual trip and this will be the place we'll stay! The only thing few negatives I can say would be the kitchen electrical outlets would trip when we tried to make coffee and cook breakfast at the same time the other would be the neighboring cabin started mowing the VERY LARGE lawn at 6:30 in the morning.... But these were quickly forgotten when you enjoy the beautiful sunsets and sunrises over the quiet lake.

We all had such a great time staying there..It was 4 adults, a 12 year old, two 7 year olds, a 6 year old and a 2 year old on our trip and we had plenty of room. The kids LOVED the tree swing outside and making smores. We had ducks visiting us everyday. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed and more. The Walmart was about 10 minutes away incase we needed anything. The kids played board games (even though they took their electronic game systems) and the views from the deck was so pretty. We loved just sitting on the deck watching the kids run around and laughing.The owners were so nice and easy to get a hold of when I had questions. We are already looking forward to our next summer get away.
