Annandale house description
Fish and relax!
Here you will have the privacy as if you owned it yourself. Listen to the morning and evening loons talking. This lake has a water clarity of about 15 feet and is great for swimming. Great sand beach, relax and tell stories sitting around a camp fire.
If you are an early riser, enjoy a beautiful sunrise while casting for large mouth bass. Local flea market 5 miles away, every Saturday morning, seems to get a lot of attention from the locals in the area. There is a local bait store nearby including groceries, fishing licenses, tackle and video rentals.

Perfect get away
Perfect get away
My extended famiy had rented this house for the second year. It is hard to find a property that can accomodate all of us (into the teens at times), but this place does so perfectly and easily. With the five bedrooms and spacious layout, there is plenty of room for us all. The lake is so very clear and the fish (sunfish) are eager to bite on anything! We caught quite a few right off the dock. The property is huge with plenty of parking and not too far from the nearby towns and only about 20 minutes from St. Cloud. There is a perfect little beach area, so lots of room for the kids to play! We love this place and would recommend it to anyone!

This lake home was a great find on VRBO for our family! Our group consisted of 9 adults and 6 children, of which 3 were babies. One crib was there and was great to have, the rest of the babies slept in pack and plays. Most of the bedrooms were spacious enough to hold the extra little sleep space for the kids. We had extremely hot weather constant throughout the week and were SO thankful for a great working air conditioning system. The kids both young and old had a great fishing experience. Most of the kids caught their first fish ever right off the dock. Crystal clear water, many, many fish that you could actually see biting your bait. It was so nice to have the 4 season porch to be able to separate (with the sliding glass doors) the early morning coffee drinking bunch from the people choosing to sleep a little later. Perfect living area spaces, kitchen was very nice, filtered water, dishwasher, wi fi, phone service. The conveniences you appreciate when away from home. Nice pontoon parade over the 4th of July. Truly a great experience. We look forward to next year. Thanks Loran!!

The cabin is very spacious! There is a ton of open space - two large living rooms, a huge dining room, the kitchen, and two bedrooms with a bathroom, and beautiful four season porch upstairs all upstairs! The downstairs has another living room, a giant master bedroom with a very nice master bedroom. There was 10 of us, and we all had a bed to sleep and basically our own room to sleep in. There are a lot of little perks as well, including a pizza oven, an extra fridge downstairs, a lean too over the grill (which we utilized because of the rain), three dining tables, and a great location. Close to St. Cloud and Clearwater, but far enough away that you feel somewhat secluded. We did not get a chance to enjoy the fishing, beach, or the yard for that matter. It rained all weekend and was very cold, so I can't say much about the beach, etc. All in all, it was a great experience, and was exactly what we were looking for. It is a very nice cabin with tons of room, in a good location, all for a very fair price. We enjoyed it very much!

Excellent until Friday morning when our privacy was compromised
Excellent until Friday morning when our privacy was compromised
This is one of the best escapes. Beautiful cabin, lots of room, great accomodations, closeby stores. We had all of our meals on the new porch which is fantastically beautiful. Rented a few years ago and had a great time here. Loran says: "There is a cabin by the home that is NOT rented to the public. It is for my personal use only." I call this his "family cabin". When Loran is NOT using this "family cabin" in front of this rental there is privacy. When the "family cabin" is in use it interferes with the rental privacy! Especially in the beach area. We rented Sat-Sat, August 20th-27th, 2011. Loran gave us a "deal"...but he did not notify me that his family (10+) would be arriving Friday morning the 26th between 9:30 a.m.-12 noon and would be at the "Family Cabin". I would NOT have rented that Friday for $$$! In March I paid to rent August 20th-27th. Loran called August 17th to offer August 28th for $$$. Thank goodness, I DID NOT take that offer....I would have left Friday and lost BOTH the 27th AND the 28th due to lack of privacy. Once we realized this large group was to be there, we spent a total of 3 people X 5 hours each= 15 hours of cleaning to make this rental spotless when we left. It included cleaning EVERYTHING, washing the bedding and making the beds as instructed by the sheet in the cabin. I requested my deposit check after we had finished cleaning. Before renters leave I think the deposit check should be returned once that last inspection of the premises is done. Just before we left Loran OK'd our rental cleaning but he said he couldn't find the deposit check. I received it 9/6 by mail. We rented both the boat and motor which were in pristine condition. Ran out of gas Wednesday (Used it Sun-Wednesday). Wednesday called Loran for more boat gas (didn't know the mixture). Thought he would have gas handy near the cabin; however, Thursday night at 10 pm he called to tell me he would bring gas at 11 a.m. Friday morning (no boat/motor then for 2 days)....he could have told me at THAT time his family would be arriving the next morning, but he didn't. We didn't use the boat again after Wednesday... The gas grill was rusted out..... He called to have it repaired...repair person arrived Friday when his family arrived so we didn't use the gas grill. We hadn't brought charcoal. I requested a refund for Friday night....but was refused. If that extra Sunday was going to cost $$$ then the refund for Friday night should be $$$.

The spaciousness of the cabin for our whole family, (10 adults and 2 toddlers), was incredible. The 2nd full sized refigerator was a real blessing, plus an small refigerator also. Ice maker and filtered water was incredible. (Last summer we had to go to store every day for Ice and drinking water). Three tables for eating was great too. We used one for serving the food. Was nice to have a dishwasher. My husband spent many hours out on the dock fishing. You could see sunnies whenever you walked out on the dock. The four season porch was very nice. We played table games out there at night. We had a good time.

Owner response: Thank you for staying at basslakeescape am I'm glad your family had a great time. Hope to have you back again in the near future. Thanks again Loran
Fantastic place, highly recommended!

We had a phenomenal two-week family reunion at this lake home. We found the owner very hospitable; he answered all our questions and gave good tips. He was kind enough to lend us fishing poles for our kids and made us really feel welcome. The house is enormous and well-furnished; the common space is unbelievable. The bedrooms are distributed nicely so everyone's sleeping schedules can be accommodated. The kitchen is a bit small for a house this size, but we all love to cook. It is well-equipped, though, and there is a second large fridge (and a third smaller) on the lower level. When we arrived the house was very clean. The lake is beautiful and we loved seeing loons, herons, muskrats and more. The kids loved the sandy beach area and lake bottom and could practically catch fish with their hands from the dock. The location is very quiet; there are neighbors but we rarely had any human noise at all. Annandale (a short drive) is a lovely little town with nice stores for browsing. There was plenty to do in the area but we spent most of our time relaxing and enjoying the house and the surroundings. We're hoping to be able to return; it's a doable drive from the Minneapolis airport (ca. 1.25 hours). We can recommend it for kids to older adults; the house does have two levels but it is an easy flat walk out to the lake.

Clean And Spacious!
Clean And Spacious!
Wonderful (winter) weekend with my kids. This is a great place if you need space! We had five adult couples and three toddlers in our group. Plenty of bathrooms and lots of room to spread out. When it was bedtime for the kids or if you needed quite time, you could simply retire to the lower level that includes a family room, two bathrooms and three bedrooms. The two main floor bedrooms and kitchen are a little small (not tiny). The adjacent dining room(s) and four season porch gave us plenty of room to prepare and enjoy our meals. The place was clean when we arrived. View of the lake is somewhat limited due to placement of owners cabin close to the lake. All in all a great experience!

Very nice large house and 4-season porch for entertaining. Accommodated our needs immensely. The house could have been cleaner. Make sure the house is left impeccably clean (even though there is a cleaning lady). Your damage deposit may be in jeopardy. We had totally cleaned everything, emptied the garbage, swept the floors, emptied the dishwasher, but did not vaccuum. Loran was upset with us and that is why we will not rent this place again. We had no trouble the first year and booked the second year.

Owner response: When I got to the lake home the cleaning lady showed me how much sand that she sweep ed up from the upper floor which was allot. I toke the garbage out myself. And they did not vacuum. I did send back ALL of there damage deposit. I know it is hard to please everyone. We try to make your vacation a pleasant one for you and your family. Thanks, Loran
This is the second year that we've enjoyed the "Bass Lake Escape." We use it as a family summer get-together for Grandma, my husband & I, as well as our 3 adult children and their spouses / children. We love the spaciousness and cleanliness. The beds are all very comfortable. The beach area is small, but adequate. We're not big into fishing, but it appears fishing is excellent. Location is close to several smaller towns, including 30 minutes away from St. Cloud (mini-golfing) and Albertville (mega-shopping). Hope to go back in 2010!!

We had a great experience on bass Lake. The cabin is very spacious. The amount of common space is unbelievable; the new upper porch addition is spacious and gorgeous. We had three couples, 2 kids and one single man and the sleeping arrangements were perfect.

About the owner: I have been very lucky to find such a beautiful lake home so close to the twin cities. I have decided to share this home with renters untile I am able to retire. This will not happen for about 8 more years. I am in the Masonry construction.I do love to use my cabin when I get a chance. The cabin is close by to the lake home. I do have two separate docks and fire pits for renters and my self when I get a chance to go there.
Why the Owner Chose Annandale:
I bought this home because it is one of the cleanest lake that I have ever seen. With the water clarity of 15 feet you can see the fish swimming around down there. It has a beautful lake shore also. Lots of sand. And close to the twin cities.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is so peacefull there and you can hear the loons in the morning and evenings talking on the water. Sitting around the campfire is always great.
