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).

About Mary Waste

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.

Mary Waste purchased this cabin in 1950

Why Mary Waste chose Miltona

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Wonderful week at Lake Miltona!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Lake Miltona, with our two children and four adults staying at this house for a reunion with other family in the area. The house accommodated us well - and felt spacious, and we loved the rustic lake cabin experience. The sand beach was perfect for children to play and swim, and we very much appreciated the kayaks, paddle boat, other sand toys and chairs provided. Mary was easy to coordinate with and answered all questions promptly leading up to our stay. We hope to return in the future.

Great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

The owner was extremely helpful and kind. The outdoor space at this home is amazing. The sandy beach is just steps from the back door and the bench on the dock is the perfect place to view gorgeous sunsets.

Jan's Clan

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 (6 adults, 2 kids) enjoyed a week at the cabin on Lake Miltona. The weather was beautiful and the sandy beach and lake bottom were excellent for kids and just lounging. The yard was perfect with lots of shade and a great deck. The ceiling and window fans made it quite comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked - didn't need to go get anything extra. Plenty of cabin space and lawn chairs for everyone. We rented a pontoon from a close by resort for a day. It was quiet and very pretty, great for the family. We all had new experiences and lots of time in the kayaks!

Cabin owner was responsive and made sure we had all necessary information.

Quiet, peaceful place to get away and make some memories with family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 6 adults and a 2 1/2 year old all enjoyed our stay------ fishing, nice dock, beautiful lake,kayaks, grilling, relaxing, a trip to the winery very close by,playing games in the spacious living room when it was raining. Nice clean, comfortable beds, great stock of dishes, utensils, and the "extras" not usually provided most places. Great quiet, peaceful place to get away from it all and make some memories with family.

July 2013 Family get-together

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults from California enjoyed a 6 night stay at this lake cabin. It was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the beautiful sunsets, which you can also see clearly from inside the cabin. It feels like home to stay in someone's family cabin with all their furniture and decorations rather than to stay in a hotel. It might be a small thing, but it was great to have all the household paper products, dish soap, etc. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, utensils, and pots/pans. We enjoyed the paddle boat, the kayaks, the new dock, and the sandy bottom lake. The weather was sunny and beautiful most of the time, but 2 days were cold and windy. On the "bad" weather days there was plenty of room for everyone (plus guests) to be inside, play games, visit, and enjoy watching the weather/wind on the lake. We rented a pontoon boat for 1 day at a local resort. We would rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Barbara! So glad you enjoyed your stay. I am very glad you got to rent the pontoon boat as well! We are happy you could share a little of the place we grew up at and also that you were able to be close to your brother's birthday party! We do like to stock up on as much as possible so travelers don't have to bring a lot of stuff with! Mary
