LARGE sleeper rentals

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of an outfitter that has sleeper houses larger than 4 or 6 person? We are looking to get a group of guys up to URL this winter for a bachelor party and were hoping to find a place that fits 8 or 10.

I remember someone telling me an outfitter had a 12 person with a loft, that sounded like it would fit the bill perfectly, I just can't find anything online other than the standard 2, 4 or 6 man.

Thanks for your help!

Call Paul at Appeldoorn's Resort on Mille Lacs, he's putting a house on the ice this year that's just what you're looking for. I can't reall the exacts, but something in the 16x28 range.

He's doing this in response to requests like yours, so it should fit your needs!

You might have to slpit the group up. There aren't too many places other than Appledoorm's that I know of that can handle a group like that in 1 house. For BO reasons you might be better off in 2 shacks too.

Yea, I've done some 3-4 nighters with 4 guys and the odor tends to be an issue by the last couple days. Multiply that by two or three and you've got a new Febreze commercial sick I suppose as long as there's one house big enough for everyone to sit around playing poker during the slow bite, two houses would suffice.

I would look at renting 2-4 houses, if you reserve them far enough in advance you may be able to get the resort to put them within short distance of each other for your event.

The big house on mille Laccs would be nice as maybe your could recruit some of the "local" talent from Fat Jacks in Bock for a private showing to make it a proper bachelor party.

We run some of the bigger houses in the biz with our six man sleepers coming in at 12'x24' six man sleeper houses. Bigger houses are getting harder to come by since the are hard to heat and move.

Most places will work with you if you need the houses close together.

If you consider Mille Lacs, call Paul at Appeldoorns AND John at Rocky Reef.

Rocky Reef Mille Lacs has 4-man houses which are designed to be linked together. I know they will link 2 houses together for 6 or 8 guys. Not sure about linking 3 houses if you have 10 to 12 guys.

CALL them and ask. It can't hurt.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
