The space
Our beautiful home rests on a large private lot by the shores of lovely Nest Lake. You will enjoy the entire 1200 square foot lower floor of the home.

You arrive home through your own private deck overlooking the lake. As you enter, you can't help but admire the spa/exercise room with elliptical, weights, sauna, aqua massage bed, Roman ceiling and mural.

The private spa bathroom boasts heated tile floors, sculptured ceiling and a large, multi-spray shower.

The living room has cherry floors, copper ceilings, private bar with four stools, stone fireplace and oxblood leather sofa and chairs.

Both bedrooms are beautifully and entertainingly furnished with reading areas in both as well as private TV's.

There is a well-supplied kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave, deluxe toaster oven, hot plate, toaster and coffeemaker as well as utensils, cookware and plates. In addition to the kitchenette, you have your own gas grill on the deck. You also are free to use the large firepit by the lake as well as your own private dock.

Guest access
You will be enjoying the entire lower floor of our home. Entrance is through a private deck at the rear of the house. There is plenty of private parking.

Other things to note
We have a private dock that our guests are welcome to use. Boats can be rented and Nest Lake is considered to be one of the finest variety fishing lakes in the entire state. You may feel free to fish off of the dock. Please do not clean the fish in the house however. In addition, please do not swim off of the docks. There are several excellent swimming areas within a five minute drive of the house.

Location

Spicer, Minnesota, United States

We are located between 2 delightful towns-New London and Spicer. Your head will spin with more activities and place to go than you'll have time for. You can't beat this area for recreation and fun. We're a 5 minute walk from Glacial Ridge Winery featuring wines from Minnesota, good food & outdoor concerts. We're a 1/2 mile away from an 80 mile scenic biking/hiking and skiing. Our home is on a large private 1 acre lot perfect for relaxation and reflection.

I have toured the world playing music and finally settled in Minnesota. I fell in love with the people and the state and never left. I'm involved in the music scene in the Twin Cities-I do "Music That Tickles!" for hundreds of audiences every year. In addition to performing, I run Dragonfly Bay Designs- an interior design company. My wife and I own our own lake house in Spicer, Minnesota which we rent out so we understand how important it is to have guests who take care of your property while they are visiting.
