Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send you a note of appreciation about our recent stay at Pelican Lake Lodge. We have a family of 9 adults and 5 children and all agreed it was the best vacation place we have ever rented. The house was beautiful and the lake was awesome. The beach was the most kid friendly place we've ever seen with clear water, wonderful sand, and such a gentle slope the stress of having them in the water was nonexistent. Although 14 people made the house a little tight with seating and sleeping everyone agreed it was 5-star. We LOVED the whole place.

We had a wonderful time and you were great at responding to questions that came up and information needed. Thank you for your hospitality and helping us make our 2013 vacation such a memorable one.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a break away from the big cities to unwind, and enjoy a relaxing scenery. This cabin was perfect for us! Beautiful inside and out. Small, lovely space, and very cozy. The Lakeview from the back of the house was breathtaking.

Olga and Dave were very tentative with communication, and helpful throughout the whole booking process with answering our questions. All of the essential necessities were provided for us. We were well informed of anything extra that we needed to bring with. It was a smooth process all the way through.

We came during a (bad/snowy) Spring season with snow on the ground, but warm enough to not be able to ice fish and do much of winter activities. Even though we were limited, there were board games and enough entertainment to keep us busy. The kids were a bit bored at times but, with a little imagination, victory still belongs to the cabin.

I would say, the only things that could use some room for improvements are the beds. That's the only thing I was hearing from people, and experienced myself.

It was hard to leave the cabin, as it really helped us achieve what we came here for. We really hope to be back at this cabin much later in the summer, to really enjoy the beautiful beach that is shown in the pictures.

Many thanks from my family for allowing us to stay at your lovely cabin!

Fantastic cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Olga and Dave were great to work with. They responded quickly to questions and were so nice! The cabin is immaculate and everything was extremely clean. I have high expectations for cleanliness and I was blown away by the cabin. I would highly recommend staying here and we will hopefully be back this summer!

great space, cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here over super bowl weekend-- escaping the city with my book club for a "super soul retreat" and Pelican Lake Lodge did the trick!!

Loved the fireplace and open kitchen, steam shower and hot tub!

Space was smaller than the pics make it look, so it was pretty snug if we were all hanging out in the main space, but we made it work!

Only negative feedback from our group was that some of the beds were pretty uncomfortable, especially the roll out beds.....maybe time for new mattresses? My partner and I stayed in the master suite, and were very comfortable. We were a group of 12 though, so if you are a smaller group you might be able to play "musical beds" and find the one that's right for you!!

I would stay here again in winter or summer, especially if I had maybe just 10 people.

Olga and Dave were very responsive and helpful for any of the things I needed, and we left behind some really nice firewood for the next folks, so we got to have a relaxing retreat *and* #payitforward

thanks, VRBO!

Perfect for a cozy winter retreat with friends

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Dave and Olga for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. The hot tub and steam room were fabulous. We even played some football out on the lake! The local bars and cafes are very cute and the house was perfectly cozy for a weekend of some serious board gaming. We made lasting memories with friends that we will cherish for years to come.

Family vacation in winter

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time as a family at Pelican Lake Lodge. We were able to use the steam room and the hot tub at this location. Not a complaint but a statement, this house has two staircases so you will be going up and down stairs! It was too bitterly cold to do much outside so we played games inside.

The home is so lovely and there are spaces that allow for private time as well as family time.

We would love to return again!
