Detroit Lakes cabin description

This property is available either monthly or seasonally.

3 Bedroom/1 Bath Cabin on lake Melissa in Detroit Lakes MN. Washer/Dryer, Fireplace, Dock,. Interior furnishings are in the process of being entirely replaced - all new furniture in living room and bedrooms including mattresses as of March 1 2015 - furniture will be delivered this month and pictures to follow (in meantime floorpan is viewable).

Cabin life at it's best, with rustic charm and literally 10 feet from the waters edge. When looking out the windows lakeside, all you see is water and at night you can fall asleep with the sound of water lapping on the shore.

The cabin comes fully furnished; beds, couches, kitchen cooking/serving utensils.

The property itself is quite unique; it has 300 feet of lake frontage with a stream running through the property. It was originally part of the Riverside Place Resort. When we bought the end parcel, it included two cabins situated on 200 feet of frontage connected by a foot bridge to the beach/swimming area with another 100 feet of frontage. (only the one cabin described here is currently available for rent). The cabin is right on the waters edge and privacy is not an issue, as there is plenty of space. Typically we have had long term renters however just came up for rent; the last renter was with us for nearly 10 years.

The cabin comes with a roll-in dock; all you need is the boat and lift. The dock is set up lakeside right in front of the cabin.

The swimming beach are is quite unique in that it is sugar sand, has a volleyball court and plenty of space to entertain! The beach has a hard sand bottom, and is about 3-4 feet in depth (perfect for kids and families). If you are familiar with the lake, there is an undeveloped section of property just neighboring us; there are often boats that anchor just off the shore and families that come to this section of the beach because it is the perfect depth and has a sand bottom, perfect for frisbee, floating coolers, and water sports. If you have ever spent time on the lake you never quite know what the beach is don't have to worry; this is the beach you have looking for!

This is a great opportunity to have the benefits of lake life without the costs of ownership (mortgage, taxes, insurance, and maintenance)!

We look forward to seeing you at the lake!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We live in Duluth, and I grew up in the area. I love Lake Melissa and hope to spend more time here in a few years.

Why the Owner Chose Detroit Lakes:
I would say it is one of the nicest locations and pieces of property on the lake. Even being partial, it's hard to deny the beauty of 300 feet of lake frontage with fantastic views and a great beach...not to mention the property has a stream that runs through it, which makes it even more picturesque.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Fantastic beach, large private lot, great location
