About the Property

Four Bedroom Lakefront Cabin, sleeps 7

**NEW FLOORING*** And many other upgrades for the 2017 season!

Full lakefront wrap around patio with lots of seating, dock overlooking crystal clear water and sandy beach, affordable boat rental nearby, swimming and water activities don't get much better here! We have 2 kayaks, a paddle boat and LOTS of inflatables for water fun! Inside cabin is fully furnished with a cozy sectional perfect for a mid day nap and lounging! Galley Style kitchen with bar style seating and huge round family table. One newly updated bathroom with single stall shower. Four bedrooms include 2 Queen beds and 3 single beds, nice and crisp linens are provided and ready to snuggle into. Living room has TV with Satelite and DVD player. There is plenty of seating in here and has the most gorgeous view of the lake. We have a game area that is stocked with cards, board games, crayons and activity books for all ages and fun activities for you and/or children! Charcoal grill ready for great cooking and a bonfire pit located in the back for s'more roasting and campfire songs! You don't need to go far to reach the golf course (across the street) , and we're just a few miles from town where you can find the bar, LQ store, laundromat, grocery store, and oh yea, the Award winning meat locker! YUM! Quiet evenings, great neighbors, and only 9 miles from Alexandria makes our cabin the perfect vacation spot. We know you will feel the love here! PLEASE NOTE:
This is a real cabin getaway....much different than any experience you will find in a "hotel". The main cabin is all original wood from the early 1900s, with additions (huge front room overlooking the lake and 2 additional bedrooms) added in later years. It is clean and comfortable, with a view and location that can't be beat for the price. If you plan to bring a boat, PLEASE let us know so we can give you all the information about the lake you need to know. We do NOT have a boat lift and waves can occur suddenly. One calm days having a boat along is no problem but you will have to be willing to remove the boat in inclement weather should it occur (public launch is very close).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: Our family would pack up and head to the cabin on the last day of school each year, and not return home until the day before school started in the Fall. It is here that my fondest memories of growing up are. Just a short 2 hour drive from the Twin Cities of Minnesota, it is a place that will melt away the ordinary stresses of life with it's quiet 'up North' country atmosphere. The lake is clean and refreshing on a hot summer day, and weekends bring the local cabin-eers up for relaxing, boating, grilling and entertaining family and friends. The sunsets are beautiful, the storms are intense, the evening skies are filled with bright stars and there is an 'up North' quiet not found anywhere near a city for sleeping and relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Miltona, MN, USA:
Our family cabin was passed down through the generations. The lakefront is known as the 'Gold Coast' by area residents, due to it's sandy beach that offers safe, rock and weed-free swimming, with Beautiful sunsets and the Lake Miltona Golf Course.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The views overlooking the lake are incredible! Living room opens up to a large wrap around patio with lots of seating. Two bedrooms offer partial lake views, and if you get an evening with waves on the lake, the sound of the waves are reminiscent of the Ocean. Awaken to the sounds of loons and birds with the peaceful quiet of the North-woods.
