When we arrived, our hostess and some friends were enjoying an adult beverage in the yard. A great atmosphere and friendly people. The only complaint I had was the place was so quiet, we overslept. So close to the twin cities, but peaceful tranquility here. Beautiful spot.

Treated us better than family

Our hosts were gracious and warm from the minute we pulled in. We had a lovely evening visiting and enjoying food from the grill. Our evening spent at their lovely location will be a great memory from our road trip. Thank you for everything.

What a great stay! Beautiful property next to a huge lake, really nice family. Had a great meal, got beat at pool and stayed up way to late talking around the fire pit. Couldn’t ask for better.

We had a great time at Carpodium's place! They were wonderful hosts. We sat and talked that night until late. It was great to spend time with them. They live in a small neighborhood, very peaceful and quiet.

Great host

Carpodiem is an excellent host. We spent 2 nights here and were told about the goings on and events in town. We stopped at the statue of the worlds largest loon and experienced small town life. They shared an extra bit of Minnesota goodness and hospitality during our stay.

Perfect first day of summer evening

You couldn't find more hospitable hosts or more fun people anywhere. We talked and laughed (moving from the fire pit to a garage party between bouts of rain) until well after midnight!

This morning, we followed their suggestions for 2 stops en route: a real cool treehouse (even got a tour) and Aldi grocery in Baxter (amazing prices).

Whether they're your hosts or guests, you're sure to have a good time.
