Hadley house description
Summit Lake Lodge is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3100 square foot home located on Summit Lake in Hadley, MN, with 125' of shoreline. The house sleeps 10 (with a max. of 12 to allow for infants & small children)
This 1930's Craftsman is filled with European antiques to offer you a getaway like no other. The home offers a full-service kitchen, television with DirectTV and DVD player, on-site laundry, fresh linens and towels, and a game room complete with board games and table soccer. We offer a canoe and life jackets free of charge for our guests, as well as two additional canoes, a pedal boat and a row boat available for daily rentals, a boat dock to fish from, and a fire pit with firewood available for purchase. We'd love to have you and your companions enjoy a ladies getaway, scrapbooking or quilting retreat, family reunion or vacation getaway here!
Summit Lake Lodge features appealing landscaping with a bench along the shore to watch and listen to the wildlife, let the children play and swim along the shoreline, pet the horses in the pasture or sit out on the deck enjoying the quiet and peacefulness of rural Minnesota. Fishermen will find a variety of fish including bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish, crappie and largemouth bass here.
RECONNECT & RECHARGE AT THIS PRIVATE LAKESIDE RETREAT!
Guests will have the opportunity to spread out in this large home and have the freedom to explore around this quiet, family-friendly lake. With a large, fully-equipped kitchen, you can prepare your meals as you like as you spend your day enjoying your friends and family. Come to Summit Lake Lodge to recharge and renew your spirit. You won't be sorry!
Slayton is only 5 miles away and has much to offer for all ages and interests. Step back in time in the historic Dinehart/Holt House and the Murray County Historical Museum (my favorite time to see it is when they have it all decked out for a haunted Halloween). Pick apples at the apple orchard north of Slayton, splash in the zero entry pool or zip down the giant water slide at Slaytona Beach West in the summer, and enjoy one of the several parks anytime of the year. With a bustling downtown, Slayton offers a wide variety of shops. Stop by the local bakery early so that you don't miss out on their fabulous glazed yeast donuts, then head over to Left Bank Cafe for fresh roasted coffee. Now that you have fuel for shopping, you'll have to decide whether you'd like to pick up something unique and flashy at One Stop Diva Shop or admire the beautiful home decor items at The Hut. If you're looking to update your wardrobe, you won't want to miss a stop at Geyerman's. My personal favorite store in Slayton is Second Wind Antiques & More, which has a wide array of bargains and a continually changing inventory. After you've worked up an appetite, you will have a number of restaurants to choose from including Pizza Ranch, Subway, Hub Drive Inn, Left Bank Cafe, or The Grain Exchange. Pizza Ranch will deliver to Summit Lake Lodge as well, or you can take subs back to enjoy on the deck.
A stay at Summit Lake Lodge will provide you a private lakeside getaway just off Hwy. 30 between Lake Wilson and Slayton. For reference, Pipestone is 23 miles to the west, Marshall Is 38 miles to the north, and Worthington is 35 miles to the south, and it is 74 miles from Sioux Falls, SD. The renowned Wilder Pageant in Walnut Grove, MN, is a quick 35 miles away, and on the way is the Wheels Across the Prairie Museum in Tracy, MN. For some family-friendly hiking, playgrounds, a lookout tower and a historic cabin, spend the day exploring 700 acre Garvin County Park, which is north of Slayton on Hwy 59.

Murray County also hosts a looped portion of the Casey Jones Bike Trail near Currie. Heading north on the bike trail from End-O-Line Railroad Park and Museum you observe farm crops up close, tall corn, soybeans thick with pods and new mown alfalfa perfumes the air. Then Lake Shetek named by the Dakota (means Lake Pelican) meanders north around the headwaters of the Des Moines River at the Currie Dam. Here kingfishers dive for minnows and families picnic while watching their fishing poles. Rest spots, scenic overlooks, the Shetek Monument, Smith Lake, wildflowers, birds and animals enhance the bike trail and when you return to End-O-Line Park, a tour and indoor/outdoor fun for the whole family can be enjoyed. The bike trail is approximately six miles of hard surface, easy-rolling hills.
Year Purchased: 2010
About: Kyle and I grew up in the area, married just out of high school and attended college together at South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD. Kyle commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Air Force in 1997 and we have been stationed in Oklahoma, Alaska, North Dakota, Belgium, Kansas and Germany. In fall 2010, the kids and I moved to this home in SW MN to be near my parents while Kyle deployed to Qatar for 16 months. This home now houses our antiques that we acquired from our overseas travels, provides us a vacation home while we continue our Air Force adventure, and is our long-term 'forever home' which we plan to move back to when Kyle's Air Force career has reached its end.
Kyle and I wanted a home in SW MN, near family, that would provide the kids and I a retreat while he served our country during a 16-month deployment. We love antiques, homes with Craftsman character, and the serenity of rural lake life, and this home fit our family perfectly. It just so happened that my parents had done much of the work years earlier when my dad purchased pasture land surrounding Summit Lake in Hadley, MN, as an anniversary gift for my mother in 1997. Over the years, they developed the property, parceling out large lots and selling them to the public. They moved their 1936 Craftsman home from nearby Iona, MN, in 2002, placing it on a full basement, attaching a 3+ garage and remodeling the kitchen. My parents agreed to sell the home to us in 2010, and it allowed them to downsize to a smaller home across the road. We look forward to being able to spend more time there in the future with the incredible views, relaxing lake activities, and the calm of nature. Summit Lake Lodge symbolizes family, togetherness, and the simplicity of rural lake life and holds a very dear place in our hearts.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a true gem because it is wonderfully decorated in European antiques and treasures picked up in Belgium, France, and Germany. It has Craftsman character, oak floors, and a view of the lake that is sure to lower anyone's blood pressure. Summit Lake Lodge is a perfect mix of high class design and relaxed livability. Even with all of our world travels, rural Summit Lake in SW MN is truly our favorite place to be!
