Beautiful home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the holidays at this home and were very happy with the home and the location. The home was exactly as described. The owner was extremely nice and very helpful. We hope to find the time to head out to Minnesota again in the summer and hope the home is available because it was perfect! Highly highly recommend this property!

Beautiful home on the water in Lindstrom

  • 4 of 5

This home was just as it was represented on the website. It is a beautiful home, was very clean and has a lovely layout for sleeping privacy for guests and yet great living space for the whole group too. The home was well stocked with enough towels and bedding for our party of 10. We stayed there while out in MN for our son's wedding. Our only regret was that the wedding activities kept us so busy and away from the home that we did not get time to really enjoy the home, the lovely lake setting and the beautiful weather while we were there. Mark was great to ask questions of and he responded very quickly. The property manager was very pleasant and kept in touch and met us at the home to go over anything we had questions about and to explain a few things. I can assure you that if you rent this home you will not be disappointed!

A great family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family vacation with 6 adults and 5 children all less than six years old with the youngest 2 months. The sandy beach was a big hit with the kids and we made great use of the paddle boat and kayaks. The kids caught some little sunfish off the dock and we also caught a nice bass as well as a northern pike. I also brought along my 21' runabout boat and was able to pull it up on shore with no issues to leave it there overnight. The accommodations were great and the bunk room was a big hit with the grandkids. My only comment on bedrooms is that the fifth bedroom is on the main floor with a fosball table in the same room so it didn't really work well as an extra bedroom but the other four bedrooms provided all the space we needed for our families. The home is well taken care of and it has the best location on the lake. A fantastic stay!!!! Thanks Mark

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay! Many of our guests enjoy the convenience of having a main level bedroom, as we advertise, to avoid walking up the steps.

Great Getway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and i were looking to abandon responsibility, kids, and work for the weekend and this house provided the perfect getaway. It was a short 1 hour drive from Minneapolis, yet had the remote, relaxed vibe we were looking for.

The house itself was well maintained. Kelly was very nice and stopped by to show us around. We loved the beach and yard and would definitely consider revisiting for our annual trip next year.

About Mark Nowlin

The Doll House on the Point is enjoyed by two families. Two brothers and their wives decided they wanted a place for all the kids, cousins, and friends to grow up fishing, swimming, tubing, waterskiing and to spend more time as a family.

Mark Nowlin purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Nowlin chose Lindstrom

We are the 5th generation to own a property on South Center Lake. The lake is very special to our family and it will be to yours as well. Lindstrom is conveniently located only 35 minutes from the Twin Cities metro area yet you feel like you are up north every minute you spend on the lake.

What makes this house unique

Only steps from the beach and water and lake views from every room! 2 kayaks with paddles and a pedal boat are included..
