“Fun family time at The Longhouse on the Point”
Reviewed 12 December 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our family of eight which included a 4 year old and 7 year old, LOVED our stay at The Longhouse on the Point! Bev and Marvin made our stay so comfortable! Everyone had plenty of activities from which to choose from playing yard games on the huge yard, fishing, hiking, boating, playing in the water, reading a book on the secluded shore of the peninsula, playing cards, using the paddle boat, enjoying smores and conversation at a campfire by the shore every evening to a quiet morning sipping coffee on the dock while listening to the breeze through the trees! We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

“The perfect Place for a relaxing get away.”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Longhouse is located near Aitkin, Minnesota, on a lovely lake. There are great walking trails through the woods and near the lake, with lots of wild life. We were there in early October and the trees were wonderful. The owners were very helpful and made us feel at home.

“Longhouse on the Point - Long on fun memories!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Thanks to Bev & Marv for letting us enjoy their beautiful home! The pictures don't lie...this home is so comfortable and made us feel we were enjoying a home away from home! We enjoyed fishing, playing games on the wonderful BIG yard, and sitting around the campfire.
We all commented that there was not a sound to be heard at night except for maybe the loons calling. Far enough out from the city of Aitkin but yet an easy drive into town for dinner and some shopping. We went as 4 couples who have vacationed for many years together and we all had enough room! Whether watching TV, reading, or just sitting on the porch eating or playing games. Beds and bathrooms galore! Many happy memories were made!
Thanks again Bev & Marv , for making us feel like old friends coming to visit!

“Great time at the lake”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We loved our time at Longhouse, there was nothing we would have changed. The house was beautiful, the views of the lake in every window, my family enjoyed everything the house had too offered. We spent every moment either on the lawn or out the water. Great place to reconnect with family and just relax, read, sleep or walk around grounds. If you need a wonderful place to visit that’s clean, inviting …..this is it

The house was exceptional and very roomy for our family. There were views from each window. Many toys to play with. The owners were great hostesses. Would rent again.

“Absolutely wonderful - one of our very best vacations ever!!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

First off - the on-line pictures are good, but don’t really capture the full beauty of the home or the lake. The statement about being able to see the lake from any window is definitely true - my son and I verified it. We stayed a week and could have easily stayed another. Bev and Marv were very generous and gracious hosts. I felt like we were in great hands and that if we needed anything, Bev and Marv would go out of their way to help us. They ensured our visit was top notch. We had plenty to do while staying, but did make a few trips to Aitkin. It was about 15 minutes away and had everything we needed – church, grocery, hardware, restaurants, shopping, gas station, etc. We enjoyed the lake by canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and even a little swimming. There were numerous, well groomed, trails that we did not have a chance to explore, but plan to on our next visit. Our favorite spot was the screened in porch. We drank our morning coffee, visited throughout the day, and play evening games there. There was wifi and cable TV, but we hardly used it. My son and daughter thoroughly enjoyed fishing off the dock. We caught enough sunfish to make a supper. We all took a try at fishing almost every day. Overall, this was a very fun, relaxing, and stress free vacation. We thank Bev and Marv very much for sharing their little retreat with us. We will definitely be back!!
