"This is a place with lasting memories - a home away  from home with the most comfortable accommodations. What a wonderful new deck and dock.  We had the very BEST stay!  We won't forget Mr. Serrin's hobby farm with the magnificent buffalo and grand elks and other wildlife. It really was one of the most wonderful, exciting experiences of my life.  Thanks!"

"The weather was perfect... seven days of sun, sun, and more sun!  Nice lake breeze... everything was excellent... the movies in the evenings to occupy the kids, cable TV (since they don't have it), and Super Nintendo (another plus).  Water skiing, tubing, jet bobbing, and the jet ski rental for the day was great. The best fun had by all was the many fish the kids caught off the dock or by the reeds.  They caught them so fast, we couldn't get them off the lines quickly enough.  Biking to the Dairy Queen, going to Torgy's for a late night drink, and winning $200 at pull tabs was a great bonus.  Can't say enough - all was great!  Thanks for the memories."

"We enjoyed our stay!  We felt at home here.  Great video selection, video games.  Very comfortable.  The amenities were very good.  We had a good time spending time here together.  There was a lot of time and thought put into this home.  Grandma & Grandpa had a wonderful time playing in the water with six of our grandbabies!!!"

"Words cannot express what a wonderful time we had... from the very first time we walked onto the south deck, until the final evening enjoying the southerly breeze on the very same deck.  We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed The Hermitage!  The weather was an absolute '10' all week.  We enjoyed the lake by fishing, pontooning, swimming, and jet skiing!  Thank you Fawcetts for making our summer vacation one we'll remember for a life time."

"This was our 3rd annual WAGALOONYSVENSKA (Wendell's All Getting Together At Lake Minnewaska (previously Lake Miltona) On Our Nostalgic Yearly Sentinel Voyage Excluding Nerds, Screwballs, Kooks, And Boneheads!!)  By FAR the best accommodations and best turnout (nobody wanted to leave).  Mike has been ice fishing here for a few years and has gotten to know some locals - introducing us to them.  That made it very special.  We hope to come for ice fishing this winter and our 4th Wagaloony.  We loved it!!"

"We very much enjoyed our time at your home.  Your parents are very easy people to work with, and a trip to their farm was a highlight of our trip!  He's built a life for himself with his hands and raised a great family - what more can you do?  My son, age 9, caught his first fish on his new rod and reel.  We had a great time on Woodlawn's pontoon boat, and just toured the whole area.  As a history "nut" I really enjoyed the old plates.  What a family legacy!  And related to a President!!  You even have one of my own "claims to fame".  My uncle is Vincent Bugliosi and you have one of his books.  He tried and convicted Charles Manson in the Sharon Tate murders.  The other is that my Grandma from Hibbing, used to have Bob Dylan over for Italian cooking often.  Thanks again!"
