Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: This property was built By the Hoffman family which which were and still are friends of the family. the original cabin was found in a featured Better Homes and Gardens magazine and that's why it ws built. My parents purchased the property and built a very large addition and the property has landed in my possession. this was my childhood summer home, i have many fond memories of this place, i live in the Twin Cities now and i try to make it home as much as i can...i felt that turning into a VRBO property i could share it with others and still have the ability to use it myself when i could.

Why the Owner Chose Aberdeen:
This was my childhood summer home i enjoyed many days fishing, hunting and waterskiing here my parents worked very hard to make this place very special and blessed me with its safe keeping.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
the lake home is very close to many activities i Love to do fishing, hunting, golfing and seeing old is very close to town but far enough away to be a hideaway very quiet and peaceful...its easy to just enjoy the views of the lake and daydream an afternoon away. this property is perfect for family reunions and or summer or winter gatherings as well.
