3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps, Lakeshore Property
About Margaret Rengstorf
We love our lake home. We would like to share it with anyone interested in seeing the area. We are from the Mankato area--farming country, and enjoy swimming, canoeing and boating in clean lakes, walking and riding bikes on the Cuyuna trail, and the communities of Deerwood and Crosby.
Margaret Rengstorf purchased this House in 2011
Why Margaret Rengstorf chose Deerwood
Serpent Lake borders the two small towns of Deerwood and Crosby. There is so much to do!
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the views from the living rooms, both up and downstairs, the peaceful porch, and the fun lake!

Very Good Week
Property was as described and was clean and comfortable. Access to the lake was very good and any replies from the owner were timely. Loved the variety of birds that are attracted to the area and ended up taking many pictures of the birds out the lakeside windows. Would stay again.
Great property, secluded but close to everything. We hope to get back soon!
Thank you so much, Judy. We love our location too. There are lots of activities around, but when you want to relax, we find our place homey--nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. You are welcome back anytime, and we were happy to share our place.
What a peaceful, beautiful spot. The view from the living room and deck is spectacular, and the big three season porch is perfect. The spacious house and very comfortable beds accommodated our two families with room to spare. The owner was very responsive and helpful. Thank you, Margaret.
Comfortable house on Serpent Lake.
Nice sized house on Serpent. Lake. Bedrooms are well appointed, beds comfortable. Enjoyed the large screen porch...a perfect place for a game of cards or just chatting in the evening. Great yard space for games. Absolutely beautiful sunrises if you were up early to enjoy!!!! Dock accommodated our 3 boats. Bass and crappie fishing were very good. A little disappointed in the swimming area... lots of weeds but workable with floatables. Same with the kitchen...could use a few more utensils and pots and pans. Loved the extra fridge in the lower level👍�! We really enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
Such a relaxing place
This is the third time we have rented this property from these owners, and have enjoyed it every time. The house has everything you need for a fun and relaxing stay. The view is beautiful and the sand beach is just awesome. We will go again.
Thank you for this excellent review. We have enjoyed having you and your family stay at the lake. Hope you are having an excellent 2017.
Comfortable home on the lake
We come to enjoy the mountain bike trails at Cuyunna State Park several times per year and this is the first time renting this home. We really enjoyed the space, the views, the use of the bbq and fully equipped kitchen. The bird feeders would have kept us captivated themselves if we hadn't gone mountain bike riding. We saw several varieties that we don't see in Manitoba. The fall colours were wonderful and we really enjoyed the weekend.
The only disappointment was that the owner did not provide the contract until we were already in Deerwood and the home does not have internet service so we were not able to view it until Monday when we accessed internet service again. Suggest providing this in advance.
Thank you for your excellent review, and I am so happy you enjoyed our lake home. We work hard to keep those large bird feeders full when we can. The birds are plentiful and fun to watch.
I do apologize about the late arrival of the contract, which does protect homeowners and renters alike. It was an oversight on my part. Renters should always insist on a contract.
This year round home is on the east side of Serpent Lake. There is so much to do in this area! You will love it because it is just a 2 hour drive from the cities. Beautiful golf courses (Ruttger's Bay Lodge and golf course is 6.7 miles away), several nearby restaurants (Coach's Sports Bar with fantastic food is 1 mile away). The towns of Deerwood and Crosby are both near this lake. Crosby has so many antique shops and also is home to Heartland Cafe--with the best breakfasts around! ); 15 minutes from Brainerd; 10 minutes from Aitkin. The Cuyuna State Recreation Area is only 10 miles away and offers a 6 mile trail and lakes area that offers Biking, Mountain Biking, In-Line Skating (or Roller Blading), Running, Walking, Skiing, Hiking, Geo-Caching, Hunting and Fishing. Visit their website! In the winter, you can enjoy the fireplace in the walkout basement after snowmobiling, skiing, or ice-fishing--or just catch up on your reading!
