Our lake home is located on Lower Whitefish Lake. The house features 100 feet of beautiful south facing sandy shoreline with perfect elevation and big lake views. The 4-bedroom (one of which is a large bunk area), 3.5 bathroom home has over 3600 finished square feet which includes a gourmet kitchen with fireplace, breakfast nook, and lakeside dining area, a mudroom/laundry, 2 fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, plus a large bunk room with wet bar, balconies, and our built in bunks. An extensive use of reclaimed materials can be found throughout the house. You will enjoy the scenic canopied drive out onto the Wabigoniss Shores peninsula and the privacy of the quaint neighborhood.
The house is perfect for families, mature couples and entertaining with its open floor plan and easy to work around kitchen. The large front yard and long driveway provide great spaces to play around. The lake in the backyard is just 75 feet away from the house - for easy access to the lake and no stairs.

Our stay was a total delight. The house was so beautiful and spacious while maintaining a cozy and comfortable feel. The owners have wonderful taste. They were a pleasure to work with; so thoughtful and kind. A perfect stay from start to finish!
Had a great time with 5 friends at this beautiful and comfortable property over Memorial Weekend 2014. Owners left us a nice bottle of wine as a welcome gift! Spent a lot of time out doors as the weather was great - the dock and outdoor fire-rings are awesome. The rooms are comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked. It is a small drive into town, about 10-15 minutes, but that keeps the area tranquil and unspoiled. Would love to back sometime soon!
What a wonderful lake home! It was just as lovely as described. We met there for a close family reunion with ages varying from mid-twenties to late 60's, and the property was enjoyed very much by all. Most of us were familiar with the somewhat remote area, and enjoyed the scenic, rustic, peaceful beauty the property and area provided. Use of the kayaks was a big plus for the younger family members. We definitely would recommend this home.
I cannot say enough about our week at this home! We rented this home with my family for a week while my kids were at camp nearby. The location was fantastic! We had more than enough room to spread out and the home was pristine. We had a couple of younger kids so the sand beach was a huge draw for them. We rented a boat and it was very easy to get in and out of the dock. Definitely one of the best locations on Whitefish!! Everyone enjoyed swimming off the dock and the owner provided some water toys for us to enjoy. I loved that we could walk out of the house directly to the shore/dock, especially with younger kids. We were also given an extremely comprehensive list of restaurants, activities in the area, instructions for the house, etc. The owners were very helpful with answering any questions and they have really created a beautiful home for renters to enjoy. We had the most comfortable and relaxing week with our family and we look forward to renting again!
I grew up going on summer vacations to various lakes throughout northern Minnesota and wanted to introduce my family (wife, 13 and 10-year-old) to the experience for the first time. I spent a significant amount of time looking through all options in the area and spoke to several other homeowners prior to choosing this home. In addition, I have utilized VRBO several times previously. This is a first-rate place to stay and I highly doubt one could find a better choice in the area - my family loved it. It's an absolutely beautiful home in a great location. You walk right out to the lake rather than having to go up and down large stairs. We loaded up at a store before our arrival and cooked many meals and never once experienced a shortage of pans, utensils, blenders, etc. In addition, they had a pantry with basic items in case we had forgotten anything at the store. This is not common with VRBO homes; but came in super handy. It was easy to replenish items the next time we went to the store. It’s a quiet place with very friendly neighbors. We rented a pontoon that easily was tied up to the dock when not in use. We also utilized the fishing rods and fished with the kids right off the dock. They had a blast catching them. The owners also provided some water sport equipment that was thoroughly enjoyed by the family. Another intangible item that this owner provided was a multi-page list covering everything about the house and surrounding area. A great list of restaurants with comments on each, places to shop and visit. I checked in with David a couple times during our stay asking a question or two and he was extremely prompt and helpful with his replies. Plus we always had his cell number if we needed something. We slept as good or better on the beds than we typically do at home. We highly recommend this home and will absolutely be returning to it the next time we plan a trip to the area.
We have experienced many different VRBO properties and are quite particular, but this home is probably the best overall that we have ever visited. The "up North" style furnishings were just beautiful. We were also impressed at how completely the home was stocked with extensive dishware, serving pieces, towels, sheets, etc. We also appreciated that basics were supplied such as garbage bags, paper towels, toilet paper, etc (not true for all rental properties). Our kids loved the loft room and the built-in beds. Outside, the beach was sandy and in close proximity to the house, the backyard fire pit was convenient, and the lake view was lovely. We really enjoyed kayaking on the nearby stream with the provided kayaks. The Whitefish Chain is such a fun place to visit, with many shops, restaurants, and activities. This house had great access to it all. David was very accommodating to our schedule and a pleasure to work with. We hope to be back soon!
The Hewitt lake home far exceeded all our expectations. The home, grounds, and dock are all in impeccable condition. David and Laura are quick to answer any and all questions and are eager for the client to have a wonderful stay. We have rented many homes and this was our finest experience. The information David provided prior to our stay maximized our enjoyment. My family would put this vacation in our top 5 and the Hewitt home help make that happen. Our rating would be 10 out of 10 and I would be happy to recommend this home to another family. Thank you very much David and Laura!!
From the moment we stepped in the front door of the Hewitt's beautiful lake home, we knew we were in for a treat. This lovely home is a vacationer's dream and was immaculate and clean. Everything imaginable is provided. From comfy beds with first class bedding to a complete kitchen which included every possible need and more, we were right at home. The lake front has perfect elevation with no steep steps, lovely sand beach, crystal clear water, and a fire pit with plenty of wood to burn. Also, a gas fire pit for conversation, a high top table, and a gas grill are right outside the kitchen door for out door entertaining. For the adventurous, we enjoyed the use of the two kayak's that are provided with the house. David was immediately available to answer our questions and provide helpful hints. He definitely wanted us to be comfortable and enjoy the home. Did I mention that there was a TV in every room for those who choose to keep up with the outside world. But if relaxation is more your idea of a vacation, this is where you want to be. You have found the right place. We were a group of four adults.
Our family had a wonderful visit to this comfortable, clean, modern home. We loved family dinners around the large kitchen table and hanging out around the fire pit. The house was well equipped and the owner responded immediately when we had any questions. The level yard area is remarkably easy for water access and views.
This cabin is as advertised! Really great location on the north side of Lower Whitefish Lake...big water views and a great beach. Cabin is very cozy and relatively new. Very high quality place and tastefully decorated. Plenty or room for sleeping quarters including a full apartment above the garage that we did not even need to use. The owners are extremely attentive and very accommodating. We highly recommend this cabin for those looking to experience the White Fish Chain in elegance and privacy. The cabin was also very well-appointed and had everything we needed in terms of cookware, cooking tools, towels, etc. Awesome place. Only constructive comment I would make is that the owners discourage the use of the in-house fire places as well as the outdoors gas fire pit. We did use the wood fire pit near the lake once but it rained a few nights and we could not access a fire at those times. Also, no WiFi but we just made our phones WiFi hotspots to compensate. Was not a big deal...after all, you are at the lake!
