Property description

New for 2015 Renters. INCLUDED in our rate is a 20' Pontoon. This pontoon is a beautiful 2012 and will make your week even more enjoyable.
We are on Beautiful Bay Lake; a 2435 acre premier lake. Just a short 99 mile drive from the Twin Cities. Bay Lake is at the top of the desired places to own in the county. (represented by the highest land values). You will understand why when you visit this wonderful lake.

Our large cabin has spectacular views of Bay Lake and was built in 2002 with 1st Class construction throughout. It is situated on a FLAT (no elevation or hike up to the cabin here)sodded lot that reaches the lake. The property is perfect for lounging in the hot tub (new one in 2015)and enjoying the sounds from the custom water fall, playing bocce ball or sitting by the fire all while enjoying being right next to the water. Our lake home has150 feet of shoreline with a sandy bottom thats perfect for swimming. There are three restaurants right on the lake that can be reached by boat or car. Also, many more within a short car ride.

Outside you will see a professionally landscaped yard with a large patio off of the kitchen. (lakeside). Here there are two large tables for eating or visiting. There is a walkway over to the 8 person hot tub. While soaking in the tub you are right next to the soothing sounds of the waterfall.

Even closer to the water is our custom made firepit. Around the firepit are 6 adirondack chairs. Perfect for enjoying the fire or roasting marshmallows.

Some words that have been used to describe our cabin are warm, comfortable, homey but yet elegant feeling. (Maybe a little Shabby Chic).The beautiful kitchen has top of the line appliances and granite countertops. It is well stocked with everything you need from coffee maker to crockpot.

The kitchen also has a large eating area with an 8 foot custom made table and built in cushioned benches. Perfect for dinners in or playing cards.

This home features wide plank wood floors throughout the Kitchen and Main Living areas. On the main level you will find: The Kitchen, A Full Bath,Laundry room and a Large Great Room with 25 ft. ceilings. The Great Room has floor to ceiling windows offering magnificant views out to the lake. The walls are lined with white oak and hanging on these walls you will be delighted to see some beautifully mounted Minnesota game. Fish, Fox, and Deer. (Tastefully done)! Unique to this cabin is a Main floor Master Suite with Vaulted ceilings, large window out to the lake and a large Master Bath . The Bed, Nite stands and Armoire are hand made out of logs. The carpet underfoot is top quality and the large window faces the lake. If you leave the windows open you can fall asleep listening to the waterfall. The Master bath has a window seat, walk-in closet and two vanities.

You will never want to leave.

Upstairs you will find Two spacious Bedrooms. Bedroom #2 has 2 Full-sized beds and views of the Lake. Bedroom #3 has a Queen-sized bed and a set of twin bunk beds. The Upper level also has a nice full-sized bath.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are the Parent Family. We Custom built this cabin and spent our first weekend here in July 2002. We built it just for us! We have 5 kids ranging in age from 23 to 12. Because of our large family we have had a lot of conflicts in the Summer with sports and such. In 2012 summer we decided to TRY this renting thing and ended up renting the cabin to a family for a week when we weren't able to be there ourselves. It went Great. This summer we hope to rent it out some of the the weeks we aren't going to be able to be there. Our Bay Lake Cabin is our second home. We love spending time here! It is NOT your average 'rental property'.

Why the Owner Chose Bay Lake:
When we were looking to build a cabin we knew that we didn't want to be too far from the cities. We didn't want to spend our weekend in the car. We also wanted to be able to invite friends up for the day and they could still drive home after a great day on the lake. After looking at many lakes in the area we zoned right in on BAY LAKE because of everything it has to offer. It has Ruttgers resort. gas for boats and jet ski's, and many, many beautiful cabins are situated on the lake.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Because the lake is made up of Bays there are always places on the lake that are perfectly calm even on the windiest of days. Bay lake is the perfect balance of quiet and relaxation and yet you can find action if you want to. We fell in love with the sandbar. There is a volleyball net set up here all summer long in about a foot of water. It is so much fun to boat over and play a little Volleyball. There is a large Eagles nest just down the shoreline from our cabin we love to boat on by and see the Eagle sitting in her nest. Bay Lake is also home to the Famous Ruttgers Resort. A great place to visit for Dinner (they have three restaurants), Golf, Gourmet Coffee, ice cream or Shopping. If you want you can schedule a pedicure or massage at their full service Spa. We love to boat on over and stop by for an Ice Cream cone.
