Our lake home is nestled on the shores of the spectacular West Lake Sylvia in the small town of South Haven, MN. The yard offers plenty of room to play games or rest and relax. The lake home is warm and inviting.
Lake Sylvia is made up of two gorgeous lakes with a channel connecting them. West Lake Sylvia offers over 1,000 acres with a max depth of 97 feet. East Sylvia offers 750 acres. Lake Sylvia is one of the clearest lakes in MN, with water clarity reaching 20 feet. Lake Sylvia is a fishing and recreational lake, there’s plenty of room for all day fishing, kayaking, boating, swimming, rafting, paddle boarding, skiing and whatever else you’re interested in.
We are about an hour West of the Twin Cities on West Lake Sylvia. We have 94 feet of lakeshore with a new dock coming Spring of 2018, which you may tie two boats up to and a jet ski (Annandale, MN has many outfitters you may rent from). Our home has 5 bedrooms with 8 beds for 12 people to sleep comfortably. There is a flat screen TV with a DVD player, games for families, and comfy furniture to relax and dine on. A gas grill is available and ready. Need some quiet space? Warm up in front of one of our two electric fireplaces and a good book. Enjoy a quiet, early morning walk around the friendly, quaint neighborhood. The large deck overlooking Lake Sylvia provides the perfect outdoor living space. It offers a tranquil place to stargaze under the open sky while finding rest next to the outdoor fireplace in the evening. Meal prep in the beautifully equipped kitchen is a breeze. There is a dishwasher, oven, microwave and large fridge and is fully stocked with all the utensils and tools you may need. Enjoy the spacious living rooms and the brilliant three-season sunroom for relaxing and game time with your family. Be sure to take a dip in Sylvia’s clear water or catch a nice bass or giant sunfish right from the docks.
Lake Sylvia is considered to be in the “Heart of the Lakes” with 26 other lakes within a 10-mile radius. The home is close enough for you to plan a day trip to the Twin Cities, catch a game, shop at the Mall of America, and visit a state park, museums or the zoo. South Haven is located just 10 minutes from Annandale & Kimball, two small towns under an hour from the Twin Cities and 25 minutes from St. Cloud, which offer grocery stores, salons, massage, and workout studios, downhill skiing, an amazing flea market, farmer’s market, historic village, vintage car shows, bowling, parks, craft brewery, bait stores, meat markets, and delicious restaurants along with boat, kayak and paddleboard rentals. There is plenty of action and adventure within your reach.
