  • Wonderful experience!

    "I had the opportunity to stay a couple nights at this beautiful home in Annandale and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, wanting to spend some time on the lake, or out snowmobiling on trails in the winter. Great location in all seasons! Large and Luxurious but definitely still has a "homey cabin" feel to it. Had an absolute blast here with girlfriends from school, and would love to go back! The girls' bedroom upstairs is the perfect spot for some much needed sleepovers (: We spent the whole day out on the snowmobiles on the lake as well as through the numerous trails around the property and to a neighboring diner. Anyone would have an amazing time staying here at the cabin for the weekend, or longer! Don't pass up this offer!"

  • wonderful property

    "Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a great week :) We were fortunate to have beautiful weather. We enjoyed the property very much ! The pool and hot tub were wonderful. Fire pit and kayaks added great fun. Had a good week fishing. Found the best spot right out in front of the dock. Caught both large and small mouth bass, a walleye as well a a few dog fish - all good sized. Everything was clean and updated. Loved having the full kitchen. Even Merlin - our Papillion puppy - had a good time running in the yard :) Again Thank You !"

  • Wonderful and warm landlord.

    "Last year my family and I moved back to Minneapolis after being overseas for a year. Because we didn't know what area we were going to live in we decided to rent a vacation home. The home was in a great neighborhood and the home had everything that we could ever have asked for. What made the house even more special was the special care that we received from the owner. He welcomed us the day we arrived and checked on us regularly to see if there was anything that we needed."

Minnesota Travel Tips

Visitors to Minnesota Vacation Rentals

Minnesota is a scenic state. The landscape is dotted by numerous lakes, both large and small. The northeastern state border is the shoreline of Lake Superior and a region that is home to several National and State Parks. Minnesota attracts visitors that enjoy nature and the outdoors. Fishing is probably one of the most popular leisure activities and this can be enjoyed on the many lakes and rivers in the state. Most visitors who go to the rural areas are from the Minneapolis St. Paul metropolitan area. Families often hitch up their boats and head to the lakeshore for a weekend or summer vacation. The various lake areas are also ideal if you are looking for a rural escape. They are where you can put your feet up and relax in good company. There are many remote and scenically beautiful vacation destinations that are ideal for honeymooners to enjoy an affordable vacation.

Seasons to Visit Minnesota Lake Houses

If you enjoy boating fishing and other water sport activities, the summer months are definitely the best time of year to visit Minnesota vacation homes on the lakes. The longer days and warm temperatures are ideal for fun days out on the water with the family. Even in the colder winter months, there are plenty of fun activities. The winter season starts in November and depending on the seasonal weather runs to March or April. The northern regions frequently have snowfalls during this time. Many of the regions have snowmobile trails and cross country skiing routes you can follow when there have been good snowfalls. If you plan to visit the Twin Cities, many of the attractions can be enjoyed any time of year. The many great museums, art galleries and retail outlets are open throughout the year. The busiest season is typically during the summer months of June and July so if you want to avoid the crowds, choose an alternate season to travel.

Many of the vacation homes are located on the lakes dotted around the countryside. The homes range from cozy log cabins to more stylish and modern buildings. It is almost certain that you will be able to find something to suit your personal taste and style. Characteristically, many of the homes are large and spacious and can accommodate several adults or extended families. Well-equipped kitchens help to make vacation catering easy.
