Park Rapids cabin description

Our beautiful chalet-style lake home sits on quiet, great-fishing (abundant walleyes, northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, crappie, bluegills) Upper Bottle Lake. With plenty of privacy, this is the perfect place to get away from it all.

Outdoors: Over 200 feet of private lakefront, with mature red pines and gorgeous sunset views. Large lawn complete with hammock, dining table/chairs, and stone fire-pit/patio for relaxing outdoor time. Stairs lead from the elevated front lawn down to the dock (please note: about 70 steps from yard to water's edge). Weber Genesis gas grill is ready to use.

Indoors: Custom-built home features gorgeous pine walls, large windows, and an open floor plan. There are vaulted ceilings over two proper bedrooms, plus an open loft space -- all three with queen beds (and all upstairs). One bedroom also includes a crib (there is also a pack-n-play and toys for the little ones). Beautiful hardwood floors lead to a large dining and living room with a Sony flatscreen TV (includes cable TV and DVD player). There is a queen-size bed behind a room-screen in the living room, as well. Two bathrooms (one with full tub, one with shower). Washer/dryer. Kitchen is outfitted with restaurant appliances, counters and shelving (all stainless steel for easy cleaning and low maintenance), and oriented for outdoor living with its placement on ground level overlooking the front yard and lake. Kitchen also includes small eat-in table. All bedding, towels, and kitchen gear is included ... just show up and enjoy. If you want to stay connected, high-speed wireless internet and landline phone are included. Attached two-car garage.

Area: The lake is quiet, with great distances between the lots, and light water traffic, even in mid-summer. It is about 4 miles from Emmaville, and 5 minutes from the great little dining town of Dorset. Bigger towns are also within a short drive: Nevis (10 minutes), Park Rapids (15 minutes), Walker (30 minutes), Bemidji (40 minutes). Many other lakes within just a few minutes, including Mantrap, Emma, Stocking, Little Sand and Big Sand. Lake Itasca and the Mississippi Headwaters Park is about 20 minutes away.

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About: It was always my dream to have a cabin in Northern Minnesota, after growing up near the Twin Cities. My brother custom-built this home, and my wife, children, and I spend as much time here as possible. It's a nice break from city life, and we enjoy the peace and quiet, and also love to have other family and friends come and join us.

              Why Park Rapids:
              We chose this property because of the views, water access, and privacy. Then we built a home that fits the location, and provides the amenities to make a long-term stay very comfortable.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              This beautiful home is ideally situated on the property, overlooking the quiet lake, with perfect sunset views and lots of distance between the neighbors.
