Park Rapids cabin description

Comfortable 3 bedroom, 1700 sq. ft. lakefront cottage, sleeps 6 people, on beautiful Long Lake in Park Rapids, Minnesota. It has a gradually sloping swimming area with a natural, hard sand bottom and 100' sandy beach area. It's perfect for small children. One of the two heavy-duty roll-in docks has a built-in ladder that’s perfect for swimming. Swim off the dock in crystal clear water, walk on sandy Chippewa Loop, gather around the lakefront fire pit in the evening and be prepared to get the best sleep ever in the North country.

This privately owned year round lakefront cabin is just 6 miles outside of Park Rapids, MN. Come discover the various area attractions and take yourself back in time by parking in the middle of the street downtown. The cabin is a perfect vacation spot for making special memories. The family vacation experience includes the scent of fresh pine, water sports, quality fishing, lakefront grilling right outside your door and family fun you create. Enjoy a panoramic view of Long Lake while drinking coffee or reading on the front deck or on the log swing in the front yard.

Long Lake is 9 miles long, 1,974 acres with a maximum depth of 135 feet, great for all water sports including canoeing, skiing, tubing, lake cruising and fishing. As one of the larger and deeper lakes in the area, it features walleye, large-mouth and small-mouth bass, northern pike, crappie, sunfish, bluegill, and rock bass.

The vacation cottage is fully heated and air conditioned. Each of the three bedrooms have a queen size bed and plenty of closet space. It also features a 16 x 16 large four seasons room with a double reclining couch and 2 Laz-E-Boy recliners, 48' flat panel television, cable TV and DVD player. Free wireless internet access. The living/kitchen and dining area is an open floor plan with an amazing lake view.

The cottage is fully furnished and move-in ready. All you need to bring is your clothes. All bed linens and kitchen and bath washrags/towels and beach towels are included. The kitchen is fully equipped including microwave, toaster, blender, coffeemaker, electric skillet, griddle, crock pot and all pots, pans and dishes you could possibly need. The living room features a wood burning stove. All firewood is provided. There is a deck on the front and on the back of the cabin. Charcoal grills are provided on the back deck and lakefront yard.

A Lund 16’ fishing boat with a 15 HP Evinrude outboard motor is included. Rent our 18' Bass Buggy pontoon boat for a minimal feel of $200/wk. It has a 40 HP Johnson motor and is perfect for cruising the lake. The pontoon lift has a large canopy that is great for little ones to get out of the sun. If you prefer to bring your own boat, we will be happy to let you use one of our boat lifts or tie it to our second dock. A 15' fiberglass canoe is also available.

The cabin is within a short drive of Itasca State Park, the source of the Mississippi River, hiking and biking trails, golf courses, a variety of restaurants, and the boutique shops of downtown Park Rapids. The Heartland Trail for biking starts in Park Rapids and is a paved bike trail that extends for over 100 miles to the east. There are many shops and restaurants along the way. Bicycle rentals are available at the trail head. The Park Rapids area is great for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. You can truly discover the beauty of the Northwoods.

You will witness the breathtaking brilliance of the stars far away from the lights of the city and hear the song of the loons across the lake calling out to one another in the tranquil darkness. Who knows? You may even be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights while you’re there! The satisfaction you'll feel knowing that you have provided your family with the gift of enduring memories--that's priceless.

This cottage has a central furnace and is insulated for early spring and fall fishing trips as well! Spring and fall fisherman will be nicely surprised.

For the comfort of our guests and out of respect those with severe allergies, absolutely no pets are allowed and there is no smoking inside the cabin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: My wife and I met one summer in 1968 on Chippewa Loop on Long Lake. It's no surprise when we tell you our hearts and our favorite place in this world will always be on Chippewa Loop in Park Rapids, MN. Our parents loved it here and had it not been for that, our lives would have gone in totally different directions. We love to share our lake home with other people and watch them make special memories in our special place with those they love. Life is about relationships and this is the place relationships are built.

Why the Owner Chose Park Rapids:
Growing up having family vacations on Long Lake was a very unique and special vacation for us as kids. It seemed our parents were always working on the cabin on Chippewa Loop, but our memories are of running barefoot down the road, swimming for hours, learning to ski and meeting new friends. There are countless memories of being in fishing boats on Blueberry Point, teasing other friends and fisherman and having a great time. The fish fry gatherings were amazing, the laughter contagious. and the sleeping was the best in the world! Our adult children and grandchildren look forward to MN vacations as much as we always have. It has not lost its charm. It's fun to watch as they run barefoot and do all the things we did with the same enthusiasm. When you stay in our cottage we want you to feel as relaxed and comfortable as if you owned it. We want you to use it as if it were yours.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The lake is so clean you can see the minnows swimming around in the shallows, can see your fish on the line way before they get to your boat, and you can see the bluegill swimming around from the end of the dock. If you have little ones they can catch fish all day long from the end of the dock. If you love to go for walks, the winding, sandy road called Chippewa Loop is the best! The clean, fresh pine-scented air is so refreshing you'll want to leave your windows open at night. Even though you're enjoying the Northland on a beautiful lake it's only 6 miles to town where you can find groceries, drug stores, shopping, fishing tackle, live bait, boat dealers, any kind of restaurant you can imagine, theaters, go-cart racing, miniature golf, golf courses galore and yes even a Walmart! What's there not to love?
