Enjoy a peaceful vacation retreat on the northeast shore of Ottertail County's largest and best fishing lake. This clean, cozy, knotty cedar cottage is the perfect spot for a secluded respite from city life. The cottage sleeps six comfortably and is fronted by 50 feet of sand beach and nestled in a stand of adult trees 400 feet from the main road. The cabin has undergone an almost total upgrade since 2007, with a more modern kitchen, new wood floor, modern bathroom with large shower, gas fireplace, new wood panel ceiling, and a short stairway leading to the dock and sand beach. (High water resulted in a rock rip-rapping around most of the lakefront on Ottertail several years ago.--but dryer season in 2015 has exposed a nice beach in front of the rock wall). Easy access via steps and dock to sand beach.
Enjoy spectacular sunsets from a wraparound deck. The property includes a paved driveway through large trees leading to a detached two-car garage, and a walkway to the cottage. The bedrooms have two queen-size beds, and bunk beds. A trundle bed serves as a sofa lounge for watching TV. The remodeled kitchen is complete with cooking utensils and dishes.
This is a perfect venue for a variety of activities. It features outstanding fishing for walleye, northern, bass and crappie. Our cabin is just a half-mile from the DNR's east shore public boat launch. We have a dock and lift to accommodate ski and fishing boats. The lake also is connected by the Ottertail River to a chain of lakes which makes for terrific canoeing and kayaking through fishing and wildlife viewing areas. It also is within a 12-mile radius of three 18-hole golf courses, including the award-winning Thumper Pond course, 1.5 miles from the cabin, and the popular 18-hole layout--Balmoral Golf Course--only 4 miles away.
