Best rental houses for large groups (6-10 people) ?

8 posts in this topic

I have a icefishing/fantasy football weekend to plan. I am from MN, most are not. Most attending have never thought about walking, even better, driving on the ice. I am looking for a sleeper house on Mille Lacs for Feb. 22-24. There will be around 6-8 people, all men, so no double beds. Where can I rent a sleeper house with some or all of the following things:

Bathroom

Oven/Stovetop

TV/DVD?

Decent bar near the resort (that you can drive to from the ice)

I do like Hunter Winfields, but what bars are around there?

I would check out Garrison sports. I am sure they would accomodate your requests plus they are right in town. The Blue Goose is a great spot for some nightlife just as you get off the lake.

I would check out Appledoorn's as well. They have houses with everything you have listed in your note.

I've rented from Eddy's once, Brandt's once and McQuoids three times. By far the nices houses I've stayed in are out of McQuoids. They are new and have everything you are looking for and more. There is also a bar where you drive on the lake as well, pretty decent.

That said, I've ever really had all that much success fishing out of any of the resort houses I've stayed in on Mille Lacs.

Good Luck!

I was leaning toward Macs or Hunter Winfields. I like the houses at Macs. I've been there quite a few times. I just don't know if we can cram 6 of us in the house. It might be a good idea for us to rent 2 houses?

I would look into Hunters Point also. The weekend you are looking at is the weekend of the Perch Extravaganza. You and your group could go home with a wheelhouse or a all expense Vegas trip or any of the other hundreds of prizes.

It is hosted at Hunters anyway.

Try the Wharf, they have some new houses that have DVD players and a dish, all tong and grove and are big too. And Terry makes they best breakfast. Dinner For like $6 they will fry up your fish and give you a salad and hash browns or what ever you want with it.

At that time of the year, our houses will be out at Hennepin Island - from there, you can drive to Buzzie's at Mac's Twin Bay - they have a bar and restaurant.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
