Why Jeff and Michelle Waldvogel chose Garrison

We have friends in the area and have always loved log home structures. This cozy getaway is just far enough away for a mini vacation, but close enough for commuting for us.

What makes this cabin unique

This log home is an actual log home. We have also raised the home with plans to add 2 bedrooms, a bath, and rec room. Also we own a Marina slip nearby on Mille Lacs that is available for an additional fee.

A Cozy Winter Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures didn't do this cozy log cabin justice! It was even more beautiful than I was expecting! It was a great place for a mother/daughter weekend getaway. The only downside was we had planned a movie marathon for a weekend in, but were unable to as the DVD player seemed to be on its way out and either skipped or cut out the movies. So with the exception of that and an outdated TV, the cabin was perfect. We cooked all of our meals there and the kitchen lacked no cooking equipment. The cabin was clean and we stayed nice and warm with the frigid temps outside! We can't wait to come back!

Sister Weekend at the Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Three sisters enjoyed this cabin for a weekend and really enjoyed it. Each one of us had our own bedroom .... the kitchen was fully furnished..anything we needed was there. Very clean cabin. We spent lots of time on the covered porch facing the golf course...relaxing, talking and playing jenga! The only thing I might mention is the recliner in the living room. If you push yourself back to recline, it immediately goes all the way back...almost did a backward somersault out of it. Wish we had captured that on video...probably could have entered it on America's Funniest Home Videos. Would recommend cabin to anyone and would love to come again for a weekend!

The Retreat Log Home is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Log Home for a women's retreat and the owners of the property were very gracious to our group. The property was very clean and well maintain. We prepared all of our meals there and everything that you could possibly need to cook or bake was available. We also enjoyed sitting around a winter evening campfire and it was the highlight of our retreat.

Great getaway from the city lights

  • 5 of 5

Decided to have a mini getaway from the city lights. Found this place by googling cabins and took a look at the pictures of the cabin and was intrigued so decided to give the owner a call and booked it.

Owner is super accommodating and extremely helpful. First night there, could not figure out how to turn up the heat and had contacted the owner, he responds in a timely manner and in no time we got the heater up and running.

Highly recommended if you are looking for a nice quiet place to just sit back and relax.
