Cozy cottage style Lake House perfect for entertaining. Newly remodeled in 2016, this getaway offers an open kitchen with brand new appliances, a large jacuzzi style bathtub/shower with heated bathroom floor, large master bedroom with spectacular lake views, a hot tub, boat house deck, a "pub" style bar, 70" television, Pacman/Donkey Kong arcade machine and more. The Lake House is adjacent to a lovely city park with swing sets and picnic tables. There is also a boat landing next to the park for those who want to bring their water toys.
Great swimming with a Lillypad water mat, paddleboards, a kayak and a great dock where kids will love to jump in the lake. Please note that I let one of my neighbors use the dock for their boat as I don't own one yet. Although I rarely see them when I'm there, once and awhile they might use the park staircase (not my yard) to get down to the lake. If you want to bring your own boat I will try and arrange a spot for you to dock it. This is one of those neighborhoods where people are friendly, hang out together, enjoy the lake and kids play ball in the streets. It's a lot of fun that way.
Another note about this house. It is not a dedicated VRBO property. That means it will have some of my things - such as clothes in the closet. There will be plenty of space for your own things and it will be as cleaned up and inviting as you should expect. But some people prefer to have their rentals empty, so just want you to be aware. I'm doing this as a fun way to share my house. It will include dishes, utensils, plenty of cooking tools, bath towels, beach towels, laundry detergent and probably an extra bottle of beer or two.
My Lake House has been designed for easy living and getting away from it all. It's not a new property - in fact it used to be a bait shop decades ago, so it still has that old house/cabin charm and its own wonderful imperfections. But a great effort has been made to create a cozy, enjoyable getaway where family and friends will enjoy life at the lake, all year 'round.
Only 25 miles from downtown Minneapolis and only 5 minutes from charming downtown Loretto where you will find some great eats and treats.
