“The perfect place for gathering friends and family”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

After having read all of the 5-star reviews, we had such high expectations of The Longhouse that I thought we might be disappointed. I was wrong! What a terrific place… Our two families (4 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed at The Longhouse for a mini-reunion of friends coming from Norway and the Pacific NW. There was so much space for relaxing, including the dining table which could easily seat our group (probably 8-10 people as well), the kitchen island around which we often gathered while making dinner, the cosy TV “loft” for watching movies, and the idyllic screen porch where we drank coffee and listened to the loons in the morning. We spent four lovely days entirely the outdoors, enjoying the kayaks, canoe, paddleboat, and rowboat (with small outboard motor) which were generously provided by the owners. When we weren’t on the water, we were playing soccer or our new favorite game of “cornhole”. We wouldn’t have been nearly as active had we stayed at a resort and been required to pay by the hour to rent all of this equipment – it was terrific to have everything at hand, including life jackets! With very comfortable beds, five (!) bathrooms, the gas grill, and groceries close by so that we could cook our own meals, we had everything we needed for the perfect relaxing vacation with friends. The Longhouse owners’ openheartedness, hospitality and generosity make this feel like the home of friends. We feel lucky to have been able to enjoy their lovely home in Minnesota, and hope we can return again soon!

Response from the owner What lovely comments! We're glad you found our house and all the amenities as advertised and that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for leaving everything in tip top shape! We enjoyed meeting you and you're welcome back anytime!

“Perfect spot to reconnect with family.”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2015

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.

Response from the owner 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. BEV

“Winter Wonderland...”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2014

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...

Response from the owner 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! BEV

“Fantastic!”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2013

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!

Response from the owner 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.”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2013

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.

Response from the owner 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.

“We enjoyed a delightful and peaceful retreat in a beautiful sett”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2013

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.

“Lovely setting, perfect home.”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2013

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..

Response from the owner 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”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2013

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.

Response from the owner 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!”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2013

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.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for the kind words. So glad you enjoyed yourselves, come again!
