Longville cabin description

A perfect retreat for your next get-away vacation!
All the amenities of home, but in a private, natural setting with beautiful views of Girl Lake.

Enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, skiing, and more on the Woman Lake Chain; one of Minnesota’s finest lake chains. Minutes to town, but located on a quiet dead-end road with huge pines and lots of wildlife.

Property is natural with 'no blade of grass,' but beautifully landscaped with perennials and a water feature to enhance the natural north woods beauty. There is a fire pit down by the lake to roast marshmallows and enjoy the cool (or hot!) summer nights.

The cabin is modern with gorgeous natural log accents and handmade log furniture. Living room and kitchen are open, exposing beautiful views of the woods and lake. Living room has a wood-burning cozy fireplace. Kitchen is fully stocked, ideal for those who like to cook. Loft is large and has queen bed and double bed. Main floor bedroom is adjoined to main bath. Bathroom on the main floor has a large jacuzzi tub to relax after a long day on the lake. Finished basement has 3rd bedroom next to 3/4 bath. Finished basement has a custom-built bar and pool table, as well as an entertainment center and sliding glass doors to walk-out patio.

Plenty of dock space for your own boat. Pontoon available for rental, please inquire.

              Car: Necessary

              Surrounded by lakes and forests, Longville, Minnesota has been a popular vacation destination for many years. Located in North Central Minnesota, the area provides some of the best fishing, boating, water sports, hiking and biking in the summer and fall and cross country skiing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling in the winter and spring. Nowhere is there more diversity of scenery and recreational events and activities as there is in the Longville Lakes area.

              Longville is famous for its Turtle Races! Every Wednesday afternoon from June through late August, swimming beaches go strangely quiet; cabins, motels, cottages and resorts empty out; and streams of cars descend on the little town of Longville on the shores of Girl Lake to race turtles.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We bought the lot in 1998 and gradually built our dream cabin. Both of us grew up in the Twin Cities, going 'north' to cabins and resorts every summer. We love the Minnesota north woods! We now have two small children, so we aren't able to use the cabin as much as we would like, but are happy to share it with you!

              Why the Owner Chose Longville:
              If you love the north woods, this place is for you. We don't believe in meticulously grooming a lawn. This isn't Lake Minnetonka! We do believe in keeping the property very natural, to make it feel like you are very secluded in the north woods, with the birds and trees all to yourself. BUT, we do appreciate a nice, cozy bed and air conditioning (only when absolutely necessary) and the comforts of home. We love cooking and have a well-stocked kitchen, ready for you to make it your own for a week.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The view is spectacular. The cabin (aka, 'lake home') is very comfortable and a perfect place to get away, relax and enjoy. Whether it is reading in the hammock in the woods, fishing from dawn to dusk, or taking a jacuzzi bath at the end of the day and cozying up to a fire in the fireplace, rest assured you will be relaxed and refreshed by the end of the week. You won't want to leave!
