Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We have enjoyed Bad Medicine Lake since 1993 and built this home in 2009. We have hosted many friends and family over the years, that have hosted their special family and friends gathering in this home. It is a place we built from our own family's experiences from staying in other vacation rental homes, with deep appreciation of comfort and flow that adds to a memorable vacation!

Why the Owner Chose Ponsford, MN, USA:
Bad Medicine Lake is one of the top premier lakes in the Detroit Lakes and Park Rapids area. Known for some of the cleanest water and Trout and Walleye Fishing. If you prefer to swim in clean crisp water... here it is!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
LARGE boulders frame the experience from inside to feel the comfort of upscale living outdoors close to the water's edge with windows offering panoramic views! We built the home with thoughtful consideration to the importance of comfort, space and warmth to enjoy and create memories together and sometimes.. on your own!
