We had a terrific time staying at this property over Christmas. There is plenty of space to have a large group without feeling cramped. The hill in the backyard was good for sledding and the theater room was a lot of fun. We also loved using the wood burning fireplace. Ryan was very welcoming and responsive to all our questions and requests. We would absolutely stay here again. — Ben S., Dec. 2019
We drove from TX and met friends from KS in order to have a snowy Thanksgiving. We needed to be in a location close to a major airport in order for our college student to join us (airport was 20-30 min). The location and home checked all the boxes. We loved the fireplace, it was very efficient and made the family room very warm and cozy. Not much wood was provided and even though buying wood was kind of expensive it was not hard to find at a local gas station. Many large mainstream stores were within 15 minutes. — Wendy P., Nov. 2019
Came home to Minnesota for a family event. The house worked out perfectly. The location was right in the middle of everywhere we needed to go. The house was gorgeous. Loved the back patio and dock. Would stay again. Thank you Ryan and family. — Elva M., Sept. 2019
Perfect for spending 4th of July week with our California kids and grandkids, as well as our Minnesota kids. Enough space for our group, beautiful setting and spacious yard for kids and little doggies to play. Grandkids especially enjoyed the playground. Deck was a favorite spot for morning coffee/breakfast, grilling, and s’mores by the campfire. Enjoyed movie night in the theatre room. Happy family memories made, thank you for sharing your lovely home. Would rent again. Ryan was very courteous and helpful. — Debra N., Oct. 2019
The house was beautiful, very clean, and comfortable. Nice deck/patio and yard, although our time outside was limited by the weather. The home theater was awesome! Ryan was helpful and easily contacted. We really enjoyed our week here. — Kathy B., July 2019

About the Owner/Manager

My wife and I purchased the Mississippi River Home in 2015. We both love nature and the outdoors, and we’re so happy to share this special spot with renters. We chose this home because of the stunning riverfront and local history. We also wanted a space large enough to host events for the whole family, with plenty of outdoor space for pets.

This property is secluded enough to encourage wildlife to stick around. We’ve seen wild turkey, deer, coyotes, eagles, raccoons, groundhogs, turtles and beaver. The property serves well as a hunting ground, and it’s also great for fishing, with catfish, walleye, crappie, bluegill, northern and bass. We’re uniquely situated in a protective cove, offering calm water and full river access.

Safely book direct at the guaranteed lowest rate.
