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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
