Help with sleeper house

4 posts in this topic

Hoping someone could lead me in right direction. My mother-in-law wants to send her husband and son to a resort with a nice sleeper house for a couple of nights. She doesn't have a date in mind yet, but would probably be mid-Jan. Pretty open. Looking for a deluxe sleeper for 2 people, with indoor biff, oven/stove as a minimum. Tv/dvd player, some sort of water supply and generator would be a plus. Price doesn't seem to be an issue. Not looking for a cabin/dayhouse combo. Hoping other FM'ers or resort owners could give me some options. Thanks in advance.

Been to Zippel Bay before...it's fine if you have a group of guys that don't care about sitting on a 5-gallon bucket to take a crap, although that's no treat either when it's -20 outside. I had a great time up there! My father in law is kind of a sissy when it comes to roughing it like that. Anyway, the reason I ask is because my wife and I are staying on URL for a couple nights. There is electric generator, indoor biff, ceiling fan, 4 gallons running water, tv, etc. Wondering if anyone knows of anyone in the Lake of the Woods area or even Rainy Lake area that would offer something like that.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
