Minneapolis house description

Come and enjoy a great summer vacation! We still have dates available in August and September.

This beautiful home is only minutes away from the Mpls/St. Paul metro area in the rural area of Elk River. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, we have the place. This home is very private, located on a beautiful lake, and you can fish right off of the 30 foot dock. It has a very large screen porch, and lots of room indoors too, with cable and two large screen tv's and wireless internet.

The home is located in a very private woodland on Birch Lake. You can get away and feel like you are 'up north' by being within only 45 minutes of the downtown area. The lake and woods and private setting creates a serene environment for enjoying nature.

The home is spacious, having 4 bedrooms with king and queen beds, enough sleeping for 10. A full kitchen and lots of room for relaxing and for just enjoying the beautiful scenery. Come and enjoy nature in this beautiful setting.

If your thoughts are towards the fall and winter holidays, you would love this place in the woods. Please just drop us a line and we will answer all of your questions about this beautiful private home.

Family reunions, holiday get-togethers, retreats, arts and crafts, whatever you enjoy, this would be the place.

                  About: Our family has lived on Birch Lake for over 50 years and we call it home.

                  Why Minneapolis:
                  This is such a quiet and private location, it is hard to believe that it is so close to the Mpls/St. Paul metro area. We invite our guest to enjoy the gift of this lakefront location that we are so blessed to have.
