About Peggy Kennedy
My family was fortunate in spending 20 years overseas as I worked my second career as a teacher for military families both in Asia and Europe. While overseas, my daughter and I were able to take advantage of many travel opportunities and stay in different types of living quarters while in various countries. I had decided to get involved in this endeavor when returning to the US, after using it as a traveler abroad in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland; really appreciating this type of vacation over the traditional hotel/inn stay; having a base of operation, more space to simply relax in when not traveling to/fro, etc. With that in mind, my daughter and I have been working to make our lake property just as appealing for others as it is for us.
Peggy Kennedy purchased this House in 1976
Why Peggy Kennedy chose Everts
Minnesota is known for its lakesvacation opportunities. I have been blessed with a very early purchase of a property that I managed to hold onto for 30+ years, finally putting a home on it in 2010 in preparation for retirement. I currently split my time between my Minnesota lake home and my second home in Las Vegas. I want to make either/or available for the pleasure of others when I am not at one or the other. In that manner, I can earn some extra money to then reinvest in the property to continue to make it more "automated"--new sod, sprinkler system, more water toys, etc., all the while waiting for our current family structure to "grow into" the property.
What makes this House unique
This property is rare in that it is very private. With a public access on one side and an extended wooded area on the other that is considered "unbuildable, there are no "land" neighbors. Deer Lake is a mid-sized lake, so it is not terribly busy, even on holiday weekends, which is also nice for those of us who live on the lake. It is a good fishing/swimming lake, where one is able to see the bottom of the lake from anywhere on the lake. It is used both in summer/winter for fishing/water/ice sports. There is also a speed boat available for rental, and Battle Lake rents out kayaks, bikes, jet skis, canoes, etc.;both short/long terms basis. There are also many eateries available in the towns close by. Stubs is renown for excellent seafood/steaks. Nothing is priced out of reach. Shoreline Cafe is also touted for its grandiose breakfast entrees. There are also "buck burger" nights, and other daily specials in surrounding townships. Fergus Falls is 20 minutes away, and the large city of Fargo is about 1 hour's drive.

A well maintained property with every amenity and convenience of home.
This is a very nice property with plenty of room and private lakeshore. The lake is clean and the river is very nice for paddling and floating. The trees are perfect for hammocks. There is a wonderful porch and patio area for evening campfires. This property is best suited for 3 couples.
A great family to invite into any home. Very respectful of my property and the amenities provided. Also, being avid travelers, provided some keen insights into how to make my vacation experience one that families will thorough benefit from. I will continue adding new water equipment and activities, hoping to enhance quality family time.
Grand time with our family!
The house is located in a beautiful secluded area which is what we needed! We spent most of our time outside fishing with my sons boat or in the water playing!! The house is well maintained with a gorgeous deck! Only needed handrails for my husband outside but we all enjoyed our time together!! Thanks Peggy for sharing your home with us! 😃
Yvette is a fantastic communicator in relaying her hopes/wishes for their visit with their son, who lives just short distance from the property and his two grandchildren. It sounds like they were able to spend lots of time "grandparenting" and providing a great time for their grand-children, taking them for overnights, out for long fishing excursions, and doing what this "lakes country" is best known for--taking advantage of the water.
Thanks for choosing to stay at my house.
Beautiful, quiet and clean
We were so impressed with the house and the property. My kids loved the beach and large lot. We can't wait to go back next year. It is close to Ottertail and Battle Lake but far enough away to feel secluded. The house is beautiful and very clean. You will not be disappointed.
Great family that would take phenomenal care of any house/area they chose to occupy. Communication was easy and seamless in preparation and after their stay, making sure their stay was all they wanted it to be.
Matt also decided to contract the boat; doing a very responsible job in working with a speedboat and all that entails in terms of added responsibilities. That, too, went very well.
beautiful lake home private and secluded from any neighbors...wonderful lake and beach
My family LOVED staying at Peggy's beautiful home! 3 comfy beds, lots of pots and dishes for any cooking style. Close to battle lake and ottertail where there are many good restaurants and things to do. We loved tubing the ottertail river...it dumped out right at our house! (Peggy has lots of tubes and yard games). We brought our speed boat(there is a dock for the boat) and pontoon....cruising the lake was awesome. Kids had a blast tubing and wakeboarding. (peggy also has a really nice boat to rent). There is space for a camper or 2 and a place to plug in. She is also building a new fire pit area that will b super nice. We had an overall WONDERFUL stay...we will be back!
It's just great when the weather cooperates and allows everyone to take advantage of all the great things this area has to offer. As Lori said, we are right at the opening of the Lazy Ottertail River Run, which is nice for people, and we do have a boat that can be contracted for use as well. Lori also had an RV/camper, something I had not considered, but do have ample space/property to support it and will continue to consider that option now in the future.
Deer Lake is in western Minnesota and considered "Lakes Country" due the number of lakes in this condensed space, allowing for many opportunities for water activities. Special to my property is its isolation/privacy. It abuts a public access on one side and an unbuildable lot on another, and County Rd 83 on the third, so access to the lake is private as is the setting of the house. The house sets on 5 acres of wooded land. A lazy river ends at the property, providing a 1.5 hour raft opportunity for families. Because of the size of the property, many outdoor games are available for travelers as well, and a night arc light provides light well into the night. There are 4 golf courses with 15 miles, Glendalough State Park is a 6 mile drive, and there are many small area towns that offer clever and thrift shopping, great lunch specials, bar/evening specials just about every night. There is local theater at a "rib" place, and Native American gambling is about 1.5 hours from the house. Stubs, in Battle Lake, is renowned for their great seafood/steaks; while Shoreline Cafe is just as well known for their superb breakfast fare. Fergus Falls is the largest/nearest city, while Fargo is the major metropolis; about an hour's drive from the house.
