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.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
