We had a great, relaxing week at Jon and Lara's Leech Lake home....everything was top notch. Jon met us at the home and showed us around and filled us in on everything we needed to know. The property was exactly as described and was well taken care of.
We ended up using 4 out of the 5 bedrooms, each having at least one king or queen bed. One 2nd floor bedroom included bunkbeds, which my daughter enjoyed. The kitchen included everything one needed for cooking and the dining table allowed everyone to eat meals together. We also made use of the table and chairs located on the deck facing the lake to eat outside on more than one occasion. We used the gas grill to cook a few meals and Jon had even dropped off a new tank in the event we ran out of propane.
My daughter enjoyed the play set with swings and treehouse-type room included. We didn't have to worry about our boat since the property has a dock in the small harbor that we could tie to when not out on the lake fishing. Jon and Lara provided firewood and we took advantage for a few bonfires at night with smores. The property is very close to a walking trail for those wanting to get some exercise and the large flat yard was used for yard games. My in-laws appreciated no steps to get to the lake.
We really love the Leech Lake area and it is nice being less than 10 minutes away from Walker in case we needed gas, groceries, a meal out, or shopping at Reed's or the other many shops.
Thanks to Jon and Lara for letting us rent their lake home and we look forward to scheduling another week next summer.
