Excerpts From Our Guest Book

Katherine from Mpls:
"Tomorrow morning we leave--after a glorious week. Lakeview was charming and cozy and the Lodge a dream! The weather was beautiful these past couple of days, too. Canoeing, hiking, taking in the stars--enjoying the expanse inside & outside. Thank you so much for helping to create such a wonderful place to enjoy the north country. We look forward to returning. *Oh yes--the wolves howled for us one night, we saw moose & otter & I was able to lounge on those 'Boundary Waters rocks' I've been longing for."

Ken from Virginia:
"This place in an incredible combination of accommodation and wildness--both first class."

Paul and Margaret from Duluth:
"Thank you for the use of these beautiful facilities! We had a wonderful time relaxing and taking in all of the beautiful grounds! It is all very well furnished and you are great hosts. We hope you are here for a long time.
P.S. There is a
MONSTER Pike at the entrance to Hilda Creek. Make sure you let him go for someone else to enjoy. The fishing was FANTASTIC!"

Stephanie from MPLS and parents from South Dakota:
"We all had a wonderful time! The Lodge is amazing, plenty of room to spread out (important for a big family like ours) and a great long dining room so we can come back togetheer when it's time to eat! We watched movies, sat in front of the fires, played games, fished, canoed, all took turns cooking, and took day-trips to Ely and Crane Lake. We decided too late that we wanted to go on a float plane ride (booked) but we will save that for next time. Thanks again to our wonderful hosts, we are so happy we could be part of the Inaugural Season of Loon's Echo!
P.S. We saw five timerwolf pups and a bear on Forest Road 200!

Meg and Ron from Iowa:
"We were in awe when we walked into Wild Loon Lodge. . .and we still marvel @ the 'homey' furnishings--lace curtains, loons in every corner, music from the radio/CD unit, wood chairs, log beds, quilts, refurbished gas stove, and everything else. . .bathroom 'throne' and comfy den,
3 woodburning stoves/fireplaces."
"We loved our time here, playing games (flipping 'washers' to see who'd have to wash whatever dishes the dishwasher couldn't handle; Taboo, 'spoons', Yahtzee), fishing, paddling to Table Rock Falls and up to Liftover Falls where we enjoyed lunch, then eating--each daughter planned lunch and supper for a day/what a treat!

"Again, thanks for making us feel so welcome & relaxed. . .we can't wait to return to a true 'wilderness retreat.'"

Jenny, age 10, from Bartlett, Illinois:
"The fishing was great. I caught my first walleye. We had a lot of fun on the canoe trip to see Table Rock Falls. The falls were beautiful. Pinecone was cozy. We had lots of fun. Can't wait to come back. Thanks."

Kathy from Wisconsin:
"The serenity and stillness relaxes even the most jingled nerves. Thanks for offering us a glimpse of paradise. Looking forward to next year."

Jerod, age 17, from Nebraska:
"For my senior year of high school, I was able to choose a place in the U.S. to go for a family trip. I wanted a place that was very secluded, full of wilderness, and good fishing. Loon's Echo has all of those plus more! I had one of the best times here and would love to come back again in the future."

Tammy from Nebraska:
"It's Thursday night, and 10 pm. We are just now eating! Its our last night and no one wants it to end! The weather has been beautiful. . .sunshine, cool evenings, beautiful sunsets! The water has been so calm in the evenings & the sound of the loons is something I will never forget. Our 4 sons stayed in Lakeview, & Monte and I were in Pinecone. . .perfect set-up. We are fishermen & enjoyed being close to the lake. Have caught about 30 this week of perch, Northern, and some really nice bass! Had the most fun canoeing! Loved using Maggie's bread machine! Pete Jr. and Dan were Excellent hosts! Rode one of your bikes to Astrid Lake yesterday (18 miles round trip) & didn't see ONE other person. The solitude here is wonderful! Right at the top of our family vacations! Thanks, Jungs!"

Jeri Kay from Mpls:
"There aren't words to justly describe all that we've experienced during our time here. Magical? Peaceful? Beautiful? Exceptional? Yes. . . all these things and more. Thank you for sharing your Northwoods home with us. Your friendly smile, warm hospitality and caring generosity made this vacation one of the best and one of the most memorable ever."

Sally from Texas:
"We had a wonderful stay at your perfect lodge. Thank you for all the things you did for us--the bread was excellent and the bread machine was fun. The northern pike fishing was the best Robert and Eric have ever had. The canoe trip was fun. We loved relaxing most of all and this is the perfect place to do it. Katherine loved the wild blueberries most. Thanks for the recipes and conversation. We felt very welcome."

Lynn and Gene from Mpls:
"Remote, Relaxing, Romantic. The perfect retreat!" Gene
"Thank you so much for opening your new "enterprise" a few months early! We're pleased to be your first guests. Rest assured that we will return, as well as tell friends and family about this beautiful place and the wonderful people who run it. Thanks"
