About Patrick Wotta

We are a family from the Twin Cities. We love spending time up north with our family and friends. It's a true getaway for us where we can enjoy the outdoors and escape from our every day hustle and bustle. We love cruising the lake, playing yard games and enjoying plenty of food and drinks on the deck. We spend every spare minute we have at the cabin, but love sharing it with others when we're not there.

Patrick Wotta purchased this house in 2012

Why Patrick Wotta chose Pequot Lakes

When looking to purchase a cabin "up north", the location, property and the lake were the most important for us, and this property delivers on all three. We are in a perfect location - close enough to the cities for a long weekend trip, but far enough away to feel like you're getting the full northern MN experience. It's also perfectly situated between Breezy Point and Crosslake, and a quick 20 min drive to Baxter/Brainerd if needed. The property offers a flat lawn level with the lake. The lake itself is a perfect size and shape for pontoon cruises or jetski and tubing excursions. Its also one of the cleanest we've seen and guarantees plenty of loon sightings and eagles overhead.

Great family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful 5 nights!! The cabin was clean and had everything that you needed. The large deck is the perfect space for just hanging out. The large front lawn was freshly mowed waiting for our arrival. The lake is clear and the fishing was great!

They have added central air, a TV in the larger bedroom and another bed in the bunkhouse since last year. The central air was amazing and being able to watch a little Netflix before going to sleep was nice:-) If you are bringing a boat/pontoon, I would recommend putting it in the water before driving to the cabin as the driveway is steep. When leaving, load all your stuff up then meet your boat at the launch and head out! We definitely will be back !!! Thanks for having us again:-)

Beautiful Cabin/Property on the crystal clear waters of Ossie!

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I took a week to enjoy a “Mini-Moon” up north on Ossie! My family had a cabin for years on this lake and it is by far my favorite lake in MN. Clear blue water with 27’ of clarity is perfect for fishing, water sports or cruising the miles of shoreline on a sunset pontoon ride! It does get some traffic on the weekends but I have never seen the lake busy in 20+ years. During the week, there were 3 days we had the entire lake to ourselves to relax and listen to the distant welcoming call of the Loons!

Patrick was a great host and met us up there to welcome us, give the rundown and even sent a few texts with a couple follow ups to ensure we had everything we needed! The cabin was immaculately cared for and all new and updated! Property is gorgeous with large flat yard lined with mature growth for privacy, leading down to the dock and beach with a large fire pit right next to the water. Perfect for star gazing and marshmallows at night! Both bedroom and Living room TV’s were smart TV’s which allowed us to unwind with some Netflix, Amazon movies during a rainy day! It was also nice to have WiFi to complete some work while I was there. Kitchen was all updated and had every amenity you would need for grilling, cooking, eating, etc. It really felt like I was at home!

This was the first time we had every stayed on Ossie not in my cabin and we were a little torn emotionally on the way up. By the end of the trip, we felt completely different. The warm, cozy, homey feeling of the cabin wiped all reservations away and we loved every minute of our stay! Moving forward, this will be our first choice every time we are looking for a Northern NM get away!! I would highly recommend this place to all people looking to head up north! By the end, you will be in love with this lake as we have always been!!

Wonderful family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation! We loved the privacy and quietness this place provided (other than the neighbors barking dog at times). The wall air conditioner unit kept the cabin plenty cool. Many yard games were played in the large open space in front of the cabins. The cabin and loft were very clean and very well kept up. The kids stayed in the loft while we had the cabin all to ourselves. Plenty of cooking pans and utensils were available. The large deck was lovely for playing games, eating outside or simply enjoying the weather. The lake was clean and we caught some decent size fish. A special bonus was a family of friendly ducks that visited us throughout the day while we sat on the beach. If you are bringing up more than one boat, you may want to tell the owners as their pontoon was on one side of the dock. We look forward to staying at this VRBO for many years to come:-)
