Shell Lake cabin description


RECENT REMODEL - New deck & log siding
Our lake home is a beautiful year round home with a cabin feel but all of the amenities of a home. The home features knotty pine interior with wood floors and a large natural stone fireplace in the center of the cabin. The great room is 2 stories with a wall of windows facing the lake. The outside of the cabin is log.

Inside there are 4 bedrooms with the master bedroom (Queen) and guest room (2 twins) on opposite sides of the main level. Upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms, one with a queen log bed and the second 'kids' room with 2 twin beds, a trundle & full bed . The loft area is open for extra sleeping (with a pull-out full bed) or relaxing. There is also a sun room on the main level with a single hide-a-bed.

The property is 450' of lake shore frontage with a huge sand beach in front of the cabin. The water is crystal clear all summer and the elevation is very gradual so it's ideal for children. We have a long dock that can be used for fishing or just sunning. There is also a fire pit on the beach with double swing chairs so enjoy the evenings outdoors. We have a NEW 20' pontoon boat (seats 10) and 2 kayaks which are included in the rental. We also have beach toys and bikes for our renters to use.

Shell Lake is a 2600 acre lake known for it's clean water & sandy beaches. All of the usual lake activities are available. There is a public landing in town so you can bring your boat along.

Please note that the City of Shell Lake recently passed an ordinance limiting the maximum # of occupants in a rental home to 10 so we cannot accommodate any groups larger than 10.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: Our family built this cabin for our personal use in 1990. We have 2 girls and they enjoyed spending their summer weekends 'at the lake'. Since they are now grown and we no longer have the time to spend as much time there, we decided to share our lake home with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Shell Lake:
                      We built on Shell Lake because it was within 2 hours of the Twin Cities and had crystal clear water with sandy beaches. We like the 'up north' feeling of the area and the local towns & attractions.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      We have 2 extra lots on either side of the cabin so there is a lot of privacy. We try to stock the cabin so that all our guests need to bring is their clothes & food. We provide everything else. We hope that our guests will treat our cabin as they do their own homes. We have many returning families each year as we have become their summer vacation home.
