Property description

This recently updated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Pulaski in Buffalo, Minnesota. With accommodations for six, this house is perfect for anything from a girl's/guy's weekend to a couple's retreat.

The newly remodeled main floor has a fully equip kitchen, including dishes, cookware, and utensils. The beautiful granite countertops give you plenty of room to prepare meals while the dishwasher makes cleanup easy at the end of the day. The counter area and the dining table each have seating for four, perfect for a meal, a round of drinks, or a game of cards. The living room has plenty of seating options to lounge in, with a couch and three chairs, or enjoy a cup of coffee by the patio door to take in the heavenly view of the lake. Better yet, have a glass of wine in the hot tub, located 3 steps outside the patio door! The patio also has a grill and patio table, great for those tropical Minnesota days :)

Upstairs you will find a spacious master bedroom and bath suite complete with king size bed and solid wood furnishings. Two guest rooms leave space for four more friends, with a queen and two twin beds. A 3/4 bath with double sink is shared between the two guest rooms.

The city of Buffalo is a friendly community located about 40 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. Home to numerous lakes, parks, antique stores, and other recreational activities, Buffalo is a wonderful place to enjoy a day trip or weekend getaway. If golfing is a past time, tee off at Wild Marsh (18-hole) or Buffalo Heights (9-hole) golf courses or practice your swing at the driving range. Pick apples at Deer Lake Orchard or taste a local glass of wine at Buffalo Rock Winery. Shop at the local stores, go antiquing in downtown Buffalo, or make the mere 20 minute drive to Albertville Outlet Mall for the latest trends. Eat some of the best pizza around at Norm's Wayside or try some delicious Mexican food at Rancho Grande. For restaurant staples, slide over to Perkins or Applebee's or grab something quick at one of the numerous fast food stops around town. Need more entertainment? Watch a movie at Buffalo Cinema or go bowling at Huikko's bowling alley.

Buffalo and Pulaski are the two main lakes. While the house is already located on the best lake in town ;) you might want to explore other lakes nearby. Buffalo Lake is located in downtown Buffalo and offers pontoon and canoe rentals. If you'd prefer to stay on Pulaski to enjoy your water activities and have a boat you would like to bring with you on your stay, feel free to tie the boat to the dock during the day. Pulaski is perfect for skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, paddleboarding, and numerous other recreational activities. Or for the fisherman of the group, simply bring a rod and reel and fish right off the dock, no boat required. You might be surprised at the fish you bring in! And don't forget, the hot tub on the deck is a great place to relax and unwind after a day of golf, tennis, hiking, biking or water activities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: My husband and I love the water and have lived on this lake together for many years. I grew up on the lake and watched the community grow and evolve over the years. The location is great because you have the lake with all the activities yet are close enough to downtown Minneapolis to make the commute every day to work ... which I do! We love to waterski, pontoon, go walking and biking. We can enjoy the theatre downtown and get to the various shopping areas in an hours time - depending upon where we want to go. Great fun! The rental property is right next door to us so if you have any questions on things to do in the neighborhood - just ask.

Why the Owner Chose Buffalo:
The house was my parents home so after they passed away we updated it with the idea that we would some day do vacation rentals with it. It gives us the flexibility for when family and friends come to stay for a weekend or a week. When not in use - we love sharing the home with others who want to enjoy the benefits of spending time at the lake yet still being able to enjoy some shopping, golfing, dining and any other activity you might think of all within an hour of the house. Just depends on what you are looking for in your vacation time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you plan a vacation in Minnesota you always have the chance that the weather might not be exactly what you are looking for ... maybe rain, maybe snow. As much as we would like to guarantee great weather, we just can't. We can say that we are close enough to indoor activities if you want to get away from the lake that you can do so with ease and turn around and head home if the weather improves. I love the flexibility this location offers.
