This spacious and comfortable lake home is only about 45 minutes away from the Mpls/St. Paul metro area in the rural area of Elk River. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, we have the place. This home is very private, located on a beautiful lake, and you can fish right off of the 30 foot dock. It has a very large screen porch, and lots of room indoors too, with cable and two large screen tv's and wireless internet.

The home is located in a very private woodland on Birch Lake. You can get away and feel like you are 'up north' by being within only 45 minutes of the downtown area. The lake and woods and private setting creates a serene environment for enjoying nature.

The home is spacious, having 4 bedrooms with king and queen beds, enough sleeping for 10. A full kitchen and lots of room for relaxing and for just enjoying the beautiful scenery. Come and enjoy nature in this beautiful setting.
