“Wow! What a picture perfect MN vacation week. And we had the perfect cabin to enjoy it. We really liked being so close to the water’s edge and looking out the picture window. We spent lots of time on the water this week: early morning fishing, water skiing before noon, tubing in the afternoon and more waterskiing in the early evening. Our brains are rested from everyday stress but our muscles are sore!” — Rick & Robyn, Duluth MN
