Principal for the Day

Weekend at the Lake

Donated by: Lee Wolf and Theresa Gooley – Item 73

 Trout Lake, MN – As our Uncle use to say, “Cabins allow us to experience a little bit of heaven here on earth.”  Experience the best of cabin life on Trout Lake in Emily, Minnesota.  Enjoy all the indoor and outdoor activities without skimping on any amenities while you are nestled among the pines on beautiful Trout Lake.  The all season cabin includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry room, a fully equipped kitchen, a deck with a view, and wonderful fire pit.   There is also WiFi for those who do not want to fully unplug.

The potential activities are endless — the only limitation being your imagination.  Whether you prefer winter or summer, there is plenty to do.  In the winter, there is ice fishing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, and/or hiking.  If you prefer summer there are equally as many activities including great fishing, amazing swimming on a deep and sandy lake, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, or simply hanging out on the hammock.  In the alternative,  you could head to Golden Eagle Golf Course, which is just a short clip away.  Or head to Crosby, Minnesota to enjoy some of the amazing bike paths and end the day at one of the many fine restaurants or at a brew pub.

Enjoy the endless possibilities during any season in lovely Northern Minnesota.

We are happy to make it available anytime during the year, with the exception being the week of July 4.

A Week at the Beach

Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Donated by: Mike and Laurel Murry – Item 74

Wonderful beach front house located in Playacar Fase 1 which is a very secure & private gated community. A part from being very close to one of three beautiful small Mayan ruins sites of the community, it is also about a 5 minutes walk to the outside shopping mall call “Paseo del Carmen”. This mall is the beginning of 5th Avenue, which you obviously heard of or visited during an earlier stay. Now, whether you’ve been there or not… 5th Avenue is “always” a special place to be at night or at daytime for a refreshing drink

While you are enjoying your shopping or again a Margarita at the bar, you could also prepare yourself for a little trip to Cozumel for diving or just to explore the Island. The Ferry is about a two minutes walk from the same mall. Now if Cozumel does not interest you, you could still go down the same alley and enjoy the night show that the local Mayan gives almost every night in the park facing the ocean. This small park it also a nice place for young kids to play with friends while you’re eating an “ice cream” or a “gelato”… watching the show.

Now, let’s go back to the house shall we….

Casa Violeta is an amazing place to stay with your family or with friends or both. The house is fully equipped and can occupy between 10 to 12 guest. It has 4 bedrooms with full bathrooms. Three of which has King Size beds and one with 2 bunk beds (2 singles on top and 2 doubles in the bottom). Not to disturb your privacy it also has an 1/2 bathroom in the common area.

We just can’t wait to meet you!!!
