What a great place to stay to unwind and relax. All 15 cabins have a view of the lake and cars are parked in such a way that they do not obstruct these carefully planned spots. The cabins are exceptionally clean and well-maintained with an affable and friendly staff. Far from luxurious, the simplicity of the cabins is a huge... More

My wife and I stayed at Bob's for a wedding last fall and had a wonderful time. The cabin was simple and clean. We really enjoyed our view of the lake, and the (essentially) private lakefront fire pit. We look forward to staying here again in the future. The price was right and the owners were very friendly.

My wife and I stayed at Bob's Cabins in June for the first time. It was exactly what we wanted. The cabins are not luxurious, but would be reminiscent of a small lake resort style cabin. However, these cabins were in excellent shape, nice and tight, very clean and solid. Heater worked when it got cool at night (and it... More

Very nice resort! our cabin was clean, cute, and had amenities that we needed. when we arrived I had a stomachache and The owner was very helpful asking if there was anything he could. There are single kayaks for use and trail bikes of very good caliber. Will definitely be back!

I just drove up from Fargo. I am just exploring by myself. I came in late with no reservations. I was going to camp, but I could not find a place to hang my hammock. Bob's had a vacancy, and Bill took great care of me even though I came in after 10 pm. The cabin is nice and the... More

We pulled in here on a Saturday night never having heard of Bob's Cabins and just looking for a place to stay. The woman who checked us in was very nice and gave us a discounted rate on a cabin which just happened to be vacant that night due to a cancellation. She said the cabins are usually booked up...

Our second visit. Great to be back. So peaceful here. I want to say rustic but Spartan might be better. Simple. Clean. Basic. Nice. No stove in our cabin but a gas two burner hot plate. We didn't cook here but did make copious amounts of coffee. We ate twice at scenic cafe, about ten miles away. Amazing high end... More

Great location, very simple amenities. Clean. As an East Coaster this was my first visit to a Great Lake. Like an ocean, yet so salty aroma. Very relaxing. Don't expect hotel like amenities... you are "roughing" it after all!

I was hunting for a place in the woods for my daughter and her friend to say while they were visiting from China in early Oct., 2013. Based on all the great reviews here on TripAdvisor - we chose Bob's Cabins. I had a pleasant discussion with proprietor, "Bill" who answered all of our questions. He told us in detail... More

Bob's Cabins reminds me of the cabins we stayed in as a kid in the 60's. It is probably best suited for adults that want to unwind and just relax. When we arrived, I did not want to leave. I just wanted to sit on the deck of my cabin and relax with a glass of wine/beer and watch the... More
