The space
This lakefront home has been in our family for 4 generations. The home is a charming cross between a cabin and a cottage. You can expect comfort combined with with rustic character, ready for the outdoor adventurer! While not huge or fancy, all descriptions and photos are meant to paint an accurate picture of this quaint cottage. The lake itself is over 530 acres and 25 ft deep, and part of chain of 5 lakes with boat access to 4 of them, known for great fishing. Several restaurants have boat access including Channel Inn which is home of Minnesota's best burger, and the Ambience restaurant and bar is a 3-minute walk.

*Please note, the dock is removed in early October and put back in the spring.

The main floor boasts a bright, airy sunroom, open floor plan, very small kitchen opening to huge deck overlooking the lake, small dining area, small bathroom & shower and 2 bedrooms.

As you go up very narrow stairs you enter the upstairs area of the cottage. This includes two different sleeping areas. One that is private with a full bed and one is a shared space with two twin beds. Both spaces include the slanted ceilings known to older 1 1/2 story homes. Upstairs you’ll also find surprises for the littlest adventurers! Throwback Corner includes favorite vintage toys and the Elf Room is a kids only space! Although the house has central air the upstairs is warm at night in the summer. Extra fans are provided.

The basement is modest and unfinished. It is cool, quiet and dark with a walk-out door (perfect for the late night fisherman!), includes one more small private bath and shower, very small bedroom with queen bed, dining area and refrigerator and walk out exit to lake front steps. The open space is also great for playing indoor games.

In addition, you’ll enjoy a grill and outdoor seating, as well as the perfect campfire landing overlooking the lake. And you won’t believe the array of stars & constellations you can view from your private dock.

All linens, sheets, towels, garbage bags, toilet paper included. Coffee pot & filters on site, please bring your own grounds of choice! Dishes, towels and silverware are in the cupboards, if you prefer paper please bring your own.

*recommended to bring: sunscreen, bug spray, water shoes to wear if swimming, a feel good attitude, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner), Minnesota fishing license (if desired).

Great lake house well set up for families or friends, for either a week end getaway or an extended stay. It is a smaller, older home that we do our best to make cozy and comfortable.
