About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)
Inside the cabin, there are stunning views of the lake from the screened in patio, the dining table, even from the kitchen sink! This three bedroom, two bath, lake home sleeps eight adults comfortably. The house is fully furnished with all linens, pillows, towels, dishes, etc. Each of the three bedrooms have closets, queen beds and ceiling fans. The master bedroom has its own private bathroom with shower. A second bathroom with shower and washer/dryer are available for your use. The full size couch has a pull out bed if additional sleeping area is needed. The cabin is stocked with games, puzzles and a small assortment of toys for those rainy days. If it's not there, it's because we’ve never needed it in the time we’ve spent there.
Aside from the cozy cabin interior, this property offers more than just a roof to sleep under and a dock to launch the boat from. The roomy 2 acre exterior, provides ample spaces for family activities. From the many lawn spaces for outdoor games (like the included Bocce, Darts, Bean Bags), the fire pit with a natural oak tree canopy, to the gravel bottomed lake shore perfect for swimming and wading (the sunfish swim between your legs if you’re still!) there is enough room here for your family to gather for a more relaxed, less crowded vacation.
Along with the dock, a swim raft is available for your use, (there is a public boat launch 1/4 mile away). If you don’t want to bring a boat, feel free to use the canoe to explore the lake in silence. Previous guests have found that they get much closer to the island with the canoe and have been able to “swim with the loons” (the loons dive under the canoe in the shallows of the island) and to observe the bald eagle that nests on the island.
If the peace and quiet of the lake and cabin aren’t enough to calm you, you can walk or boat to Eagle Lake Resorts for one of their many day spa and relaxation events. If you feel the need for shopping or entertainment, all the amenities of the city are within a 10 minute drive. The developing communities of Detroit Lakes and Perham offer a wide variety of events, parks and restaurants that the entire family can enjoy. Frazee is a very charming community and the Frazee Turkey days are a blast. Check out the local community calendars for a listing of events and activities during your stay! Just up the road is another quaint town, Perham, MN. With some of the best shopping in the area and a few of the best coffee shops and bistros we've tried, it is sure to please.
If the active life is your thing, be sure to check out the Detroit Mountain recreation area. Offering hiking and mountain biking trails in the summer that will get the heart pumping, this new attraction is one of the best things to come to our area.
The home is available on a weekly basis May-Sept. Our rental terms are 6 night minimum stay, check in on Monday, check out on Sunday. We do not accept pets at this time.

We are nestled in the heart of the Detroit Lakes area with quick access to many attractions for everyone in the family. Breakfast comes with more food than you can eat at the Palace Cafe in downtown Frazee. After you eat, walk across the street to Ketter's Meat Market to pick up some of their delicious brats, pork chops or steaks for grilling (you WILL NOT be disappointed). Enjoy lunch in the quaint city of Perham, MN, where you will find a fantastic little coffee house/gift shop called Gathering Grounds. For a nice, picturesque dinner out, visit Spanky's Stone Hearth in Vergas with views of beautiful Rose Lake. These are just a few of our favorite places in the area, but we are discovering more all the time! Explore the area and let us know of any interesting and noteworthy places YOU find!
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Hello! We are Nathan and Stacey Schwendeman. We were both born and raised in Minnesota, and grew up playing on the Minnesota lakes and rivers. As adults, we now know the value of this precious resource and wanted our own little slice of heaven on one of the many beautiful waterfront properties Minnesota has to offer. Knowing that this resource is meant to share, we wanted to open our vacation property to you, fellow VRBO travelers. We have used VRBO in the past and have been very pleased with the quality of homes and caliber of people we meet. We wish to live up to the same standards. Please feel free to call or write with any questions you may have.
Why the Owner Chose Frazee, MN, USA:
After many years of looking, we knew we wanted to purchase property in the Detroit Lakes area due to the natural beauty of the area (so many lakes with great fishing, swimming, boating camping and hiking – all our favorites!). Then it was just a matter of finding the right property on the right lake – A lake that wasn't too busy, or too small - so that you could enjoy good fishing and boating. Eagle Lake was just the right size! This property also allows us to put some 'roots' back in our home state, and is a great place to gather with family. It is only a 45-minute drive from Fargo Regional Airport, which provides a quick connection to and from Chicago O'Hare and Minneapolis/St.Paul airports. The drive to the Twin Cities is easily made in less than 4 hours, and offers scenic views of the farms, lakes and country side.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is our vacation home, not a commercial property. We spend our summer weeks here as well, so please be our guests and make yourself comfortable. We enjoy the calming atmosphere of great views across the lake out to the island. Many mornings have been spent on the dock with a cup of hot coffee or hot chocolate just listening to the sounds of the lake. We also enjoy the time we spend in Frazee and Detroit Lakes. There is always a great place on the 'mile-long' beach of Big Detroit Lake to eat, meet or just people watch. The many city parks offer a fun place for the kids to play while you have a picnic. We often add items to the cabin or property, which adds to the enjoyment of our guests. If you find the house is missing something, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs. Hope to hear from you soon - The lake is calling.
