“A+ Place for us!”
Reviewed 15 December 2016 for a stay in September 2016

There are not enough superlatives to write how well this house worked for us for a 4-sister reunion. While we love being together, we each like our own space and the Longhouse on the Point has lots of that! Sooo private and sooo quiet: a gorgeous location surrounded by water--it just doesn't get any better than this. Bev and Marv made us feel like part of their family, offering anything and everything in their home for our use. The weather during the week that we were there could have been a little better, but the rainy, cool days let us each find our own nook to read in or chat with each other. We never even felt the need to turn on a TV. We did manage to get a sunny day to use the kayaks on the beautiful lake, take some walks/hikes through the woods, and have a campfire under the brilliant stars.
Aitkin is a small town that has some nice galleries, both in town and nearby, several decent restaurants in the area and good shopping for groceries, etc. It's close to Brainerd and several other towns, so there is plenty to do if you want to leave the house and go explore. A beautiful house in a beautiful area, with terrific people as your hosts! Awesome.......

“Fun family time at The Longhouse on the Point”
Reviewed 12 December 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our family of eight which included a 4 year old and 7 year old, LOVED our stay at The Longhouse on the Point! Bev and Marvin made our stay so comfortable! Everyone had plenty of activities from which to choose from playing yard games on the huge yard, fishing, hiking, boating, playing in the water, reading a book on the secluded shore of the peninsula, playing cards, using the paddle boat, enjoying smores and conversation at a campfire by the shore every evening to a quiet morning sipping coffee on the dock while listening to the breeze through the trees! We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

“The perfect Place for a relaxing get away.”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Longhouse is located near Aitkin, Minnesota, on a lovely lake. There are great walking trails through the woods and near the lake, with lots of wild life. We were there in early October and the trees were wonderful. The owners were very helpful and made us feel at home.

“Longhouse on the Point - Long on fun memories!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Thanks to Bev & Marv for letting us enjoy their beautiful home! The pictures don't lie...this home is so comfortable and made us feel we were enjoying a home away from home! We enjoyed fishing, playing games on the wonderful BIG yard, and sitting around the campfire.
We all commented that there was not a sound to be heard at night except for maybe the loons calling. Far enough out from the city of Aitkin but yet an easy drive into town for dinner and some shopping. We went as 4 couples who have vacationed for many years together and we all had enough room! Whether watching TV, reading, or just sitting on the porch eating or playing games. Beds and bathrooms galore! Many happy memories were made!
Thanks again Bev & Marv , for making us feel like old friends coming to visit!
