Minneapolis house description
This luxurious secluded cabin, located only 40 minutes from the Twin Cities, is perfect for those who want to get away but don't want to be gone. Whether you want to jump on the water trampoline or just soak up the sun laying on it you will wonder why everyone doesn't have one of these. If you tire of being on the water but still want to relax in the sun, throw your towel on the sandy beach and listen to the water ripple against the shoreline. The waters of Bass Lake are excellent for swimming or you can grab your fishing pole and discover why this is considered one of the best fishing lakes in all of Wisconsin. Feel like burning off some energy and calories, your private clay tennis court with viewing box is perfect for the beginner or a 6.0 player. Want more action, you are only 15 minutes away from The Rivers Edge where you can rent a tube and enjoy an afternoon of floating on the apple river. After the day's activities you can rough it by grilling out on the deck or cooking in the kitchen with every culinary accoutrement an urban chef could desire. After dinner sitting in the screened in porch watching the sun go down across the lake makes for a spectacular close to the day. If you aren't into watching the sunset, no worries you can turn on one of the satellite televisions with more than plenty of options or throw a movie in the DVD player. Still trying to unwind, well the whirlpool Jacuzzi in the master suite should ready you for a good night's sleep, either listening to the crickets chirp or the silence with the windows closed in air conditioned comfort.

We absolutely loved our stay at this wonderful property. We felt so lucky to stumble upon it. It met all our needs and then some. Great place to do some family bonding. Quiet and secluded area...in fact, we had the lake to ourselves most of the week. One of the cleanest lakes we saw during our vacation. The owner was so accomodating and far surpassed our expectations. (Thanks for the cookies also!) I felt I got to know him personally. We highly recommend this property and can't wait to come back for another visit....

Owner was nice and accommodating to our requests. Great location with its proximity to Minneapolis. Beach area was sandy and well groomed. Lake is clear and great for boating, fishing, skiing, etc. We would definitely rent this house again!

Our family had a great time at this beautiful location. The owner greeted us on our arrival and showed us all around. HIs wife had made a huge platter of cookies for us as well. We couldn't have felt more welcome. Fishing equipment, water toys, cards, games, puzzles and almost anything that you could want or need was available. I couldn't imagine a better week than the one we had.

An unbelievable find!
An unbelievable find!
We are from So. California, and our daughter was getting married in the Twin Cities with the reception in New Richmond, WI. Our entire family (including two grandparents and 5 siblings of the bride) was flying in to attend the wedding and needed to be conveniently located for the various events. Also, we had very little luggage capacity due to current costs for checked baggage; this was exacerbated by the necessity of toting clothing for two flower girls, one bridesmaid, one groomsman and the mother and father of the bride! In addition, we didn't want to spend a fortune eating restaurant food and really wanted a full kitchen so that we could save money and eat how we like. We needed a place that would sleep 9 people and have sufficient restrooms for those 9 people to get ready for the wedding. I searched for something in our price range for quite a few weeks, contacting various owners. There was nothing listed when I searched in Somerset and New Richmond, but I found this little gem in the Minnesota Metro section. When I clicked on the map, I could hardly believe my luck--a place that was very close to the rural barn reception yet was within 45 minutes of the Twin Cities! It could accommodate our party AND was in a beautiful, tranquil, yet convenient location. I contacted Jack who was very responsive and helpful, and we decided to stay there. While the wedding was obviously the highlight of our trip, staying at this beautiful, spacious cabin was such an escape from our hectic So. California existence. The "cabin" was quite luxurious in many ways. The kitchen is huge and has EVERYTHING you would want. The entire cabin is a home-away-from-home, and with a small amount of emailing prior to our arrival, Jack made sure we had an ironing board, iron and hair dryer which was crucial since we had such limited luggage space and needed to get ready for a wedding. Every member of our family loved loved the cabin and surroundings (so beautiful in the fall), including the grandparents and particularly the kids. Some of our extended family came to visit us there while we were in town, and there was so much room and interesting things for them to look at around the lake. We came in the fall and were busy with family events, but I would love to stay here again, including in the summer. There is a lot to enjoy outdoors here. . .fishing, swimming, tennis, the sleeping porch!! My father-in-law congratulated me on such a "great find" and I am rather proud of myself!!
