Medicine Lake house description

Waterfront home on the quiet and clean lake of Medicine Lake with stunning views, 60 feet of lake shore and private dock. Medicine Lake is the 2nd biggest lake in the Twin Cities metro area – a spectacular oasis set away from it all, but without the long and expensive drive. Minutes from downtown Minneapolis (less than 10 miles), Mall of America and readily convenient access to unique and large array of shopping, eating and entertainment. Where else can you enjoy secluded lake life and then drive 15 minutes from your dock to a Twins game?

Have your own boat? Bring it along and tie up to your own private dock. Lake is perfect for skiing, wake boarding or fishing anytime you desire. Own a sailboat? Bring it along to sail on a lake known for its sailing schools. Lake shore does not have a sandy beach but easy to jump in a boat to head out for a swim.

After a day enjoying the lake, enjoy stunning sunsets and relax on the private stoned patio complete with a BBQ grill followed by roasting marshmallows in the fire pit within the large rolling green lakeside lawn.

Fitness fan? Enjoy the miles upon miles of paved trails around Medicine Lake.

Looking for parks? Medicine Lake boasts 3 parks, including the famous French Lake Park.

Need privacy to work or looking for a large working area for crafts such as scrap-booking? Large working spaces available and free WiFi.

The lake home is an excellent size with 2,300 finished square feet on one level and an open floor plan ideal for families. The home is able to sleep 8 comfortably. The large master bedroom includes a king sized bed, a Jacuzzi tub, plenty of closet space, floor to ceiling views of the lake and a private bathroom with double sinks, heated floors and a shower. The second bedroom contains a queen bed and bunk beds. The third bedroom contains a Select Comfort double (adjust your sleep setting) and single sized bed. The living room contains a wrap around couch and the family room contains a futon for extra sleeping space. The second bathroom contains a tub/shower, heated floors and a beautiful vanity. $20/night extra per individual for more than 8 guests (maximum number of total guests is 10).

Enjoy the large and open living spaces infused with natural light and stunning floor to ceiling lake views. The large living room has a fireplace and vaulted ceiling. The vaulted ceiling family room has a gas fireplace and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on each side to the lake.

Love to cook? Upscale kitchen with large center island, gorgeous new cabinets, microwave, stove, oven, and refrigerator.

Full washer and dryer.

Plenty of parking space with private driveway.

House is fully furnished and equipped.
