We had a wonderful time on Reno Lake. The pictures in the listing don’t do the house justice. The house is so spacious but still cozy. The hosts provide practically everything you need. Lots of pillows, bedding, fluffy towels, beach towels, life jackets (including youth), games, even some toiletries. Kitchen is fully stocked, with great appliances which made cooking very easy. The extra beer fridge is a nice touch. Beds are comfortable. I loved having the washer and dryer, since the kids played on the beach everyday. The location is amazing., just two hours from the cities. The property is secluded but easy to get to and close to town. Every room has lake views, most of the house does since the lake wraps around the property. The west-facing porch is the best and a great place to watch the spectacular sunsets. We are definitely coming back.
The photos don’t do this house justice. It was so beautiful and well cared for with an amazing yard and lake views from almost every spot in the house. Adults only this time but I would feel safe bringing kids as it’s located at the end of the road with no traffic concerns. Walking distance to a great bar and restaurant.
The house is great. It’s well taken care of and more spacious and nicer than it appears in pictures. We’d definitely come back. The lake is nice and quiet, beautiful yard, lake access for kayaking. We also rented a paddle board, which was nice. Nice fire pit with plenty of chairs. We are frequent VRBO’ers and really enjoyed our stay.
The property was a bit larger than we were expecting, with nice upgrades given the age of the house. The bedrooms were comfortable with nice views, maybe could upgrade the sheets though since they seemed a bit thin/dated. The yard is fantastic with great access to the water, & the kayaks were a huge plus!
Loved your place!
This cabin exceeded all our expectations! It was very spacious, super clean, and had everything we needed for our four night stay. The beach was nice and very swimmable. We rented paddle boards and made use of the provided kayaks. We took advantage of the large yard for playing games and had plenty of room inside for board games and cards. We would love to come back next year.
We had a wonderful stay! The location is beautiful with so much green space and access to the lake! The beach area was perfect for splashing around with our toddlers and the clear waters gave a great view of the sunnies off the dock! The inside was updated and homey! The beautiful views of the lake from every bedroom and the porch made you feel like the outside was in. The kitchen was well stocked for prepping meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!
We needed to stay within two hours of Minneapolis due to some Covid related travel restrictions and this property was the perfect spot! Nice quiet lake. Perfect for kayaking. Property is situated on a beautiful peninsula with nice breeze off the lake. The property has everything you need including towels, linens and the kitchen has a nice range of items so you can prepare meals at home. We will come back!
Gorgeous house and property! Well stocked kitchen and the kayaks were great to use. Appreciated all of the little touches too that made it such a special property.
We thoroughly enjoyed the property. We will return.
The temp was above normal for the area. A/C is usually not a factor but came into play in the mid day. Just a suggestion A/C would have been nice in the down stairs area. We were aware of this before rental and still had a great time and were comfortable with portable fans . Great location for what we wanted to do.
Beautiful property, even better than expected! The house is both charming and updated and exactly what we were looking for to get away for a weekend. We had so much fun on the lake with the kayaks and found a company that rented & delivered stand up paddle boards. Plenty of yard space for our kids to run around. House was perfectly stocked and had everything we needed to enjoy some down time. We will definitely be back!
This property is amazing! The house was very clean and comfortable and well stocked. Our girls loved playing and swimming out at the lake, boat rides, and sleeping in the bunk bed room. There was plenty of space to spread out with one queen bedroom on the main level (attached to the shared full bath), and three bedrooms upstairs (2 queens and 1 bunk bed room with two beds) with a shared full bath. There were air con units on the top floor but even in the middle of August we didn't notice it being hot on the lower level. The yard and views are spectacular, especially at sunset! And the location is ideal because you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere but you can walk up to a restaurant/bar and be in Crosby, which is an adorable little town, in a 5 minute drive (or short bike ride). The only thing lacking for us was darker shades on the rooms where we had kids/baby sleeping. Other than that -this is a wonderful place to stay and I highly recommend it.
The historic house was perfect for our two families. Had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space End less hours fishing, boating, swimming, kayaking, finding frogs and roasting marshmallows!! The house was well stocked and the children enjoyed the kayaks and extra pool toys. Duane the local caretaker was very responsive to any needs. The grocery store and good restaurants were only 10 minutes away! Very relaxing long weekend on a beautiful Minnesota lake.
Lovely lakeside house!
We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful lake. The house had great light and views to the lake. So much space. Loved the porch. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the kayaks and pontoon. The loon, geese and heron families entertained and provided opportunities for great photos. Wish it were handicap accessible for my 93 y/o mom but we managed. We recommend this property!
Easy to communicate with owner. Had plenty of everything we needed and more
If you’re looking for a lake house that has everything for a perfect getaway, look no further! This wonderfully maintained and upgraded 120-year-old home has beautifully serene, private views and lots of space for a family or group to enjoy time together. We loved the kayaks, the pontoon boat and the fire pit by the water. Saw lots of wildlife! Also loved all the extras that made it feel like home—all the kitchen utensils you could ever need, nice bedrooms,games to play, and great internet access—cuz, you know, teenagers! We hope to come back one day!
It's a beautiful place with a nice large yard. Everything was well stocked and taken care of.
The house was so spacious and had everything we needed. The beds and living space were all very comfortable. The property is very beautiful with great views. It was a wonderful and relaxing vacation for our family. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
The house was perfect for our family! Just the right sleeping space and even later in the summer the lake was great for fishing my grandsons never wanted to leave. Would like to make it a yearly trip!
We all loved this property, absolutely stunning views, home was amazing Definitely would come back
Very well appointed property. Manicured grounds,, spacious, cozy and clean house with spectacular lake views. We found everything we need and more: new sheets, new towels, etc. The fire pit was filled with wood, the grill was clean and had a full tank. The two bicycles were brand new and super comfortable. It was fun to explore the area! The pontoon, which we requested as an extra, was filled up with gas and ready for us at the dock. Reno Lake is a small, shallow lake. It's a tranquil spot with just a few houses around it, the perfect location for a vacation with families, especially if you have young kids. Property manager and emergency local contact are available and prompt in responding. We thoroughly enjoyed our 6-day stay at this property, thank you!
This place was charming, peaceful and felt like we were staying at a place right out of the movie the Notebook. Clean, well kept and spacious for 7 guests!
Our son can sum up our stay at Deerwood by his parting comment, I don't want to go home. This house easily met and exceeded our needs, family of five. We wished we enjoyed the property itself a bit more with our stay but the children loved the swim area, kayaking, fishing, bikes, the abundance of space inside and out. We did not make use of the pontoon but ran out of time. We had some initial questions leading up to our vacation and when we arrived, the property owners, management and maintenance team was great to work with and quick to reply. Overall we had a great stay and experience at Deerwood and would stay there again in the future. Thank you.
This place really does have everything you're looking for when it comes to a relaxing get-away. It was very clean, had ample supplies throughout the entire house and outdoor use, and was remote enough yet close to town if you wanted to take a 5 minute walk up the road to enjoy the bar/restaurant. There was more than enough space for the 7 of us ladies and the beds made for a very comfortable sleep. There was only 1 thing that jolted us a little bit and that was the smoke alarm would go off in the upstairs hallway every time someone took a shower in the upstairs bathroom...but that didn't hinder our good time. We spent the majority of our time by the lake or in the lake...the beach was lovely with hardly any traffic throughout the day and we used the fire pit both nights. Highly recommend this place and look forward to continuing an annual get-together for our group here! The owner was very responsive to any questions I/we had and took the time and attention to detail to make sure we would be comfortable. Thank you so much for the memories!!!
Great location on a small private lake. Isolated, yet walking distance from town. There was few to no other boats out the whole time. Lake is super clear and hardly any shallow weeds, great for recreation. Fishing was ok - Bass, small northerns and sunnies. Pontoon was perfect. We would go back for sure. Couple maintenance items but nothing that impeded our trip. Note: given this is a private lake there is no public launch you must load on the beach if you bring watercraft. Ground was solid but you'll want a 4wd truck.
