Why Owner / Property Manager chose Medicine Lake
When we moved to the Minneapolis area we knew we wanted to be on a lake but didn't want to have a cabin and a home and sacrifice drive time. We found this perfect spot on Medicine Lake, a city within the city of Plymouth. Being here on this lake gives you the feeling of being up north but having the advantage of all the events and activities of the big city.
What makes this House unique
This area has so much to offer and is so close to everything, but you may not want to leave the lake. Enjoy the beautiful sunrises and quite evenings. There are a couple loons that can be seen on the lake as well as two bald eagles that are often spotted in the neighborhood and we have even had a golden eagle fly over.

Very nice, comfortable and relaxing
Home is located in nice, quiet area with great view of the lake. Very clean. Beds were comfortable, nice bathrooms, well stocked kitchen. Great place to just relax and unwind. Owner was very responsive to questions both before and during the stay.
Potentially a great vrbo destination
This house may eventually be a great vrbo destination. The finished parts of the house are nice. Nothing over the top, but nice. There are a couple of unfinished places in the basement which aren't so nice. One you must go through to get to the bathroom.
The more troubling issues were the lack of prep before we arrived. The wifi was in seasonal mode, so we had no wifi for most of our time there. But i think that'll be fixed for the next arrival. The bigger issue: it was obvious the canoe and kayaks had not been used yet. Spider webs, still in storage. The day was arrived, we found out the canoe had a broken middle pole. Therefore, we stayed off the lake.
With all of that said, Mary responded quickly to all of our texts and was very nice.
This place is nice now when clean and has the potential to be very nice when clean and finished. We will consider this place next time we're heading back to the bold north.
You will not be disappointed!
We were a little leery about renting this house, since it was new to VRBO. However, Mary gave us the email address of the current renters to contact for a reference. That lady was super nice, too., so we decided to rent it while on vacation in Minnesota. The house has been totally remodeled with new floors, bathroom, etc. The photos don't do it justice. There are plenty of linens, paper products,etc. We did not need to supply anything. The house was very clean. The Wifi was awesome. We did not use the canoe or kayak, as the weather turned cold and rainy while we were there, but would had the weather cooperated. There was a bald eagle in the tree next door. We enjoyed watching it. We were never bored, as Minneapolis was only 25 min. away and we took riverboats rides, went to Mall of America, drove to the falls, etc. We definitely will rent this house again if in the area!
I am thrilled you enjoyed your time! And I am glad you got to enjoy the Eagles, it really is amazing the habitat of the area so close to the metropolis. I look forward to having you visit again sometime!
Fantastic lake escape close to everything
We loved the cabin. It was bright, clean, and comfortable for us as a family, with many options to keep the kids entertained both indoors and out. The cabin had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was ideally located on the lake, in proximity to three beaches, miles of paved running trails, and two bald eagles :)
We had a great time!
Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was our home, and are so happy to be able to return next June!
So glad you enjoyed it and happy to have you back again next year!
