This was the best vacation experience we have ever had for a variety of reasons. Bev & Marv were concerned from our very first contact that all of our questions were answered and that they provided everything we needed for a perfect vacation. "The Point" exceeded all of our expectations. The home is beautiful, well designed, large but cozy at the same time. All features of the house reflect what a custom home should provide. From the custom kitchen, large bedrooms, and multiple family gathering areas, the 7 of us enjoyed good meals, family game nights, and even time alone to read and listen to the loons. Outside we fished, kayaked, canoed, hiked, and even toured the lake in the motor boat. On day two, our kids asked if we planned to do this again? We are already reserving dates. Do yourself a favor and come to The Point.
We are so happy you had such a wonderful vacation. We appreciated the great photos you took, thanks. We look forward to seeing you again next year.

We spent a fantastic week at The Point! The house was beautiful and it accommodated our whole family wonderfully. Our boys loved sledding on the hills and my husband and I enjoyed snowshoeing on the property's extensive trail system. The house has a great kitchen for gathering, comfortable common areas by the fireplace and for watching TV, and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Outside was a winter wonderland. We will definitely be back...
Glad you were able to enjoy The Point in winter, it has so much to offer.
We look forward to your coming again, any season!

One would never expect to find such an amazingly modern, exquisitely decorated home so far from today's hurried urban areas. The home at "The Point" offers an opportunity to relax, enjoy a natural setting, and explore acres of wooded land surrounding a lake. The home is expansive yet comfortable. It has high ceilings, large windows, and a gourmet kitchen. Little conversation nooks are nestled here and there all over the house...perfect for reading or dozing. We loved every aspect of our stay and hope to "go back for more" in the near future. The fall colors were lovely, but summer must be glorious there!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at
the Point. It looks like you enjoy many of the same things we enjoy about this place. Thanks for the kind words and be sure to come again!
“Our stay was a deliight.”

Early mornings on the screened in porch, nursing a hot cup of coffee and watching the sun rise was one of the highlights of staying here. Windows in every room overlooking the lake afforded beautiful views where ever we went. Little nooks and crannys throughout the house provided comfortable spots to sneak away for a quiet moment to read or meditate. The design of the house is spectacular. This was a delightful stay.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Glad you liked all the nooks and crannies so you could (as our children say) be "alone together" when you chose. Thanks for coming, come again.

This is a spacious and luxurious home supplied with everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in the woods of northern Minnesota. There are several bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy and plenty of areas for visiting and togetherness. Also, the little town of nearby aitkin has so much to offer.

This is a perfect home for a reunion (family--school friends etc. With 5 bathrooms and many sleeping areas it was very convenient for our group of old college friends. The view of the lake is wonderful as is the design of the home. It is clean and tastefully furnished. We had a great time and thank you for sharing your home with us..
Glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your review. Be sure to keep us in mind when looking for a vacation destination.
“Wonderful facility for a group--lovely location, excellent priva”

For a reunion of any kind, this is an excellent choice. Lots of sleeping areas, but gathering rooms, and smaller nooks for conversations as well. And from all the windows, you look at the lake, which surrounds on three sides. Really a lovely spot.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We love our home and are happy when those who share it like it too. You are welcome anytime. Thanks for taking time to post the review.
“A Glorious Find!”

Needed a place for a Northern Minnesota retreat for 8 women over 75! We found it in this beautiful home. A lovely screened porch and nooks galore all over the house for privacy for the readers and writers among us and wonderful conversation spots for the whole group or just a twosome. All the amenities of home in a rustic setting and walking distance to a lovely historic site -- A National Register of Historic Places --Bethlehem Lutheran Church originated in 1891 complete with kerosene lamps still in place from the early pioneers. I could not have imagined a more ideal setting for our October get-away; everyone left wanting to stay longer. It is simply without flaw and I can think of no better recommendation.
