I spoke with a team member and it was a pleasant experience. I enjoyed it!
We had nothing but a positive experience. The property was located close to Tofte for a trip to the general store for things we missed, but also remote enough so we could enjoy Lake Superior and the surrounding nature. The kitchen was so nice to cook in and the bedrooms were situated perfectly with one in the basement so we had privacy while also enjoying each others company. We will be staying at Stone's Throw Retreat again!

Thank you for a wonderful weekend and some much needed family time. As soon as we walked through the door I felt myself start to relax. The house was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was cozy but also had enough space for everyone. The guys could be downstairs watching the game while the ladies were upstairs talking, playing the board games that were there and enjoying a glass of wine. My mom curled up for hours just reading a book in the window seat. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, and even had some unexpected extras like a blender, crock pot and waffle maker. It was too warm to build a fire but look forward to doing that next time. The views were spectacular and we really enjoyed grilling on the deck and eating outside. Our sunset fire by the lake was a priceless moment. The beds were very comfortable, even the sleeper sofa! Thanks again, we will definitely be back.
