best sleeper rentals for wife and two small kids


fish

Recommended Posts

I am looking to rent a house on mille lacs. I can fish out of most anything. My wife...she would want something a bit more "comfortable". She's not a princess but she would want really clean. Thoughts?

I had a good experience with Appledorns last month and I had 3 little princesses with and they all liked it. The fishing was slow but that's why they call it fishing

Appledoorns also has some deluxe ones that are like cabins on the lake there are a couple special ones with futons and fireplaces. Paul works hard to keep em up and on fish as best you can.

during x-mas break this past december we went out of appledorns in house #1 for the maiden voyage, we were only in about 15 feet of water,. so our bites were around dinner and every once in a while. but nothing off the charts. but did bring in some bigger fish. a 22, 22 1/2, and 24. missed about 4 or 5 others. got a 17 inch in the morning and few jumbo, had my wife, daughter and a friend both 13, and 2 boys at 8 and 9. house was warm had a dvd player, stove and oven. if you can pull it off go during the week the prices are much more friendly. but a great experiance either way. they all said they would do it again.

Just got back from Appeldoorns. Very friendly workers and accommodating. Only concern I would have if I ever brought my wife or small children is the bathroom issue. It is just a bucket, but I guess you could always run in twice a day for some bathroom time.

The "bathroom" is my biggest concern i guess. buddy and I went out of appledorns last year. No problem for me. I just do see my wife being comfortable with a bucket.

We have bathrooms behind a closed door. DirecTV, stove, ovens, Play Stations/DVD players. The houses are wheelhouses, they are like campers. We get a ton of families that stay with us. We bought 5 new ones this year, they are awesome houses. Take a look at the website for photos.

Nitti's hunters point is one of the best resorts I have ever dealt with, I would give them serious considerations for your trip.

Nitti's has been good to us as well. I'd recommend sticking with a wider house for the room with kids.

I can tell you what resort not to go to. TWIN PINES. Just got back from there yesterday. 3 guys 4 walleyes and two pout. The service was bad we were up there at 5pm like they said and couldn't go to our house til 6:15pm. Then they put us up in a house that was in 12 FT. It wasn't a good experience for us for being the first time we rented a house out there.

I had the exact issue with Twin Pines. They wanted me to upgrade the house and I said no, the one I rented was fine. They made me wait 1 1/2 before they would bring me out to the house.

      Earlier this morning it looked like Vermilion froze over last night but now I see open water on the Hibbing Point webcam.  The strong winds must have opened the lake back up.  Tonight the temps drop to single digits and the wind dies down by 5am so it will freeze over tonight.  Expecting 1-2" of snow on Friday with high winds so hopefully the snow will blow off the new ice.  Saturday-Thursday looks very cold with no more snow, so the main lake should get a solid freeze.  Some are ice fishing in Stuntz Bay already, and some braver than I may walk out from McKinley Park this weekend.  I'm going to wait until the end of next week to venture out, although it will be very cold.

      On the south end... Ice is forming, but other than some back bays, it isn't ready quite yet.  Mother Nature is on track.  Some resorts are making the prediction of December 10th for day houses being out, give or take, but at this point, this isn't set in stone and time will tell.  There are cold temps in the forecast and things look optimistic.  Many resorts and outfitters have been checking ice conditions.  When the time is right, resorts and outfitters will slowly and safely begin marking and grooming trails for ice travel.    Please remember, ice conditions vary greatly in different parts of the lake.  One ice road can have good ice that has been checked and marked while down the shoreline there may be ice not suitable for travel yet.  Work through resorts and outfitters on the ice and stay on the marked trails for safety. Anticipation is high as the walleye and sauger fishing this fall was good and fish were staged in good numbers along the south shore.   On the Rainy River...   Much of the Rainy River is frozen up.  Things are progressing but it certainly needs cold weather and some time. Ice conditions vary and on the river there is current, so much like the lake, we encourage visitors to work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Ice is forming nicely and is right on track for this year's ice fishing season.  There has been no ice fishing yet as resorts are simply monitoring ice conditions at this time, waiting until the ice is thicker before marking trails and getting fish houses out. Fall fishing was excellent with walleyes in good numbers along with some monster pike being caught.  All indications point to good fishing when the ice is ready as the fish are there. Driving through Canada to reach the Angle no longer requires COVID vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App (which is optional).   For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, there are few options.   1.  When ice conditions allow, the snowmobile trail will be groomed and staked from the south shore up to the Angle. 2.  The Lake of the Woods Passenger service provides round trip bombardier service across the lake.   3.  Lake Country Air provides air service to both the south end and NW Angle.

      At least they can all say they were there early!

      I'm still hoping for a sunny warm-up to melt all of the existing snow off of the existing ice, and then an arctic blast. After that, I'm hoping for a giant walleye to hop out of the lake and filet itself before skinny dipping in some batter and then relaxing in a hot pan of oil in my kitchen.

      I'm planning to go later this week.  There's fresh snow coming tomorrow too.

      I would highly recommend not doodling around out there at night time either.  When those cracks form, the piece breaks off from the main sheet or the land and you are then caught "adrift" with no way back.   The bite is not as good as it normally is from what I have read either.  We're so used to hearing that "its on fire" for the early ice bite but that doesn't appear to be the case.
    • leech~~
      Well, a new report for today talked about cracks opening up and ice piling up!  Better check the night before you head up.  😕
    • Harv
      Leech,  that's what I've been reading.  I'm heading up on Friday the 2nd, for the weekend.   Fingers crossed limits are caught
