About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, + Bunkhouse, WiFi & Cable
Just 3 summer weeks left available! Plenty of 3-day stays in May, June and September.Three- night minimum rental available until 6/23; week- minimum rental from 6/23 to Labor Day, then 3- night minimum until closing in October.
Adorable cabin on the golf course bay of Sand Lake, great swimming, fishing, boating, golfing. Also ATV, kayak, pontoon, and jet ski rental nearby! Summer 2017 marks our 7th year of providing guests with lifelong memories of a week at the lake.
After a 100-mile drive north from Minneapolis/St Paul you'll arrive at a storybook cottage surrounded by tall white pines. Inspired by ocean beach cottages, this nautical-themed gem has the most amazing boathouse rooftop deck on the lake! Drink your morning coffee watching the loons; spend your afternoon sun-bathing; your cocktail time munching on cheese and crackers with a glass of wine; and your evenings stargazing and spotting the Northern Lights-- all from the roof of your own private boathouse deck.
Sand Lake Cottage is well-appointed and decorated for relaxation and fun.You'll find a well-stocked kitchen, including large fridge and dishwasher. There's a huge set of dishes, and ample cutlery, wineglasses, cookware, linens and pantry items - everything you need.
Curl up on the red wicker furniture or the comfy sofa in the living room and warm up by the wood-burning fireplace. You will find plenty of indoor entertainment: 3 TVs, cable, internet and excellent WiFi, DVD library, board games, and an iPad for your use.
From the shady screened porch you can look out on the yard, gardens, the campfire ring. Catch panfish, northerns, and bass from the end of the dock. Or snip some flowers from the gardens for a bouquet for the patio table, or help yourself to the herb garden.
Enjoy water sports of every kind from the dock. Swim, float, kayak, rent a pontoon, go tubing, boat over to the golf course and have pizza, appetizers, and drinks in the clubhouse.
There's plenty to see and do off the water -- bike the Munger Trail, play golf at the Moose Lake Golf Club, hike Jay Cooke State Park, head to the town of Moose Lake for shopping, dining, a movie, visit Black Bear Casino or Grand Casino, or take a day-trip to Duluth or the North Shore.
Pontoon or fishing boats, kayaks, jet skis, ATVs are all available nearby to rent for a few hours or few days!

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: In 1988 we bought a cabin on Sand Lake which is down the lane from the rental cabin, but about a dozen cabins apart. I spend my summers there and I know the area and people well and I enjoy sharing that information with guests who are looking for a vacation with that "local" feeling. I greet all my guests at check-in and bid farewell at check-out; other than that I respect your privacy. However, should you need assistance I am close by and happy to help you.
Why the Owner Chose Sturgeon Lake, MN, USA:
In 2009, after twelve years of owning the old, uninhabitable cottage we had an architect draw up a new floor plan, and by 2010 the rebuilding was complete. We kept the original wood floors in the front room, but everything else is new! The cottage is now a private vacation rental property for you to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Sand Lake has the climate of the North Shore without the long drive from the Twin Cities metro area. Towering white pines, red oaks, and maple trees cover the area, and the 'air-conditioned' climate of Duluth provides cool nights and warm days, and you can enjoy all the pleasures of a full recreational lake -- swim,waterski, boat, fish for northerns, bass, muskie, panfish.
