The lower level theatre room and entertainment room will be a big hit with the kids (ping pong, air hockey, bumper pool and poker table, charades and scrabble). Burn off energy while playing basketball. Extra large driveway too with bikes for the little ones.

Pet friendly and baby friendly: Pack and plays, high chairs, books and toys for the young children.

Things To Do

Boy lake is clean & quiet and paddle swimming right next to the dock is a bonus. Our shoreline is great for canoeing and paddle boarding. Two kayaks for guests to use. And the fishing is great - challenge your group to catch enough fish to have a fish fry! Yum - Perch, Northern, Bluegill, and Crappie all taste great. Fish off the dock!

Since you book directly with us (Jesse and Liza) we can be your local “eyes”. Want to rent a pontoon for a week? We have a 20ft Bennington for you to rent. Experience local life at one of the small restaurants or bars.

A short drive to most anything: 15 minutes to find groceries, liquor store, ice cream, and a marina where you can rent other water toys. Explore Walker and Longville, or get back to nature and find Minnesota Northwoods hiking trails - Leech Lake area has a great bike trail too.

The Tidwell treehouse cabin was amazing! Every room in the house was decorated beautifully, very inviting and comfortable. There were 13 of us, and we all had our own space. The granny flat was very warm and a little stuffy, even with the air conditioning. So we all slept in the main house which worked out very well for us. The kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed to prepare our meals. A joy to be together with family as we all like to cook! The deck outside overlooking the lake was a peaceful place to have a cup of morning coffee. Almost every evening we took the pontoon out on the quiet lake to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets, and listen to the loons. The fire pit was also a great place for us to enjoy family time and s’mores. Wonderful family vacation! Teresa N.Henderson, N
We were thrilled with our week at Treetops! We were a party of 9 with 2 grandkids ages 3 and 4. There were so many things to do to keep us all busy. The bikes, balls and all the toys exceeded our expectations. This is the BEST house to play "sardines" in! On our bad weather day, it was wonderful to have the lower level where we could hang out. The kitchen had every gadget we needed, and there were plenty of places to dine or play games/cards. Thank you, Tidwells, for a most wonderful family summer vacation! Katy S.
This was our third year at Tidwell Treehouse. The house is beautiful, and perfect for our family of 21. (Ages 4-85). The weather was great this year allowing us to spend lots of time on the lake swimming, fishing, water sports, and kayaking. One of our great joys as a family of 21 is being able to dine together. The large, well stocked kitchen and two dining rooms allowed us to do this. The game room was once again put to good use with air hockey, ping pong and game competitions. The theatre room was wonderful for those who just wanted to relax and watch a movie. We enjoyed a beautiful night by the firepit, enjoying the smores provided by Jesse and Liza. (Thank-You). The yard is well kept, and has plenty of room for our yard games. Jim and Sue W
We had another great time staying at the Tidwell cabin. We had a group of 15 and had plenty of space of everyone. We love the kitchen and there are so many spots outside to sit outside. Robert P.Neenah
We rented this cabin for our family of 13 with two babies and three older children. Liza provided us with two pack and plays, two high chairs, and plenty of books and toys for the babies. There were more than enough Bedrooms and they were quiet enough for sleeping/crying babies. We had a great time lounging off the dock and using the entertainment room for rainy nights. There were lots of areas to eat both inside and out. The nearest town was a ten minute drive where you could find groceries, liquor store, ice cream, and a marina to rent boats and paddle boards. Boy Lake is beautiful and very quiet, a few fishing boats here and there. Jaclyn H.
