Property description

Our cabin is a fully furnished, three bedroom, one bathroom rambler just a few blocks off the lake and 1.5 miles west of beautiful downtown Clear Lake. It is close enough to downtown and the highway to get anywhere quickly but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle so you can enjoy the quiet.

Just off the Lake has a beautiful and relaxing front deck, free wifi, and a fully furnished kitchen. Just pick up some groceries at the nearby Fareway and you’re all set. Our long driveway has plenty of room to park your boat/trailer or RV. The house is very family-friendly with a high chair, booster chair, and pack-n-play. There is a park with a nice playground just a few blocks away.

We'd love to have you stay with us on your next trip to Clear Lake! Call or text Debbie at 651.230.3796 or email us at for more information.

Off-season monthly rental rate: $1100. Please contact Debbie for more information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1957

About the owner: The three of us grew up in this house in Clear Lake and still come back often with our families to enjoy the house as well as all Clear Lake has to offer. Two of us currently live in the Twin Cities and one of us is off in New Mexico (but still manages to make it back to Clear Lake regularly!). When we're in town we also enjoy connecting with the many friends and family who still live in Clear Lake, and we look forward to sharing our town and our cabin with you.

Why the Owner Chose Clear Lake:
As we've mentioned, our father and uncles built this house in 1957 and for us, as adults, it is now the perfect cabin for us to use to stay connected to Clear Lake and enjoy time away and time together.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Just off the Lake is in a residential neighborhood close to enough to the activity of downtown to be convenient but far enough away to be very quiet and relaxing. The house itself is very cozy and the front deck is particularly nice for enjoying some down time, eating meals together, etc. The house comes furnished with everything you need to have a relaxing vacation and is just a few blocks from lake and plenty of public access docks & boat ramps.
