Walk out the front door to beautiful sandy lakefront. Great place for the kids to swim! This is strictly a rental unit - no owners' belongings to deal with! Newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances. 3 bedrooms and a pullout in the family room. Sleeps 8 to 10. Washer/dryer. 4 person paddleboat included and dock access for your boat. Weekly pontoon rental based on availability. There are 2 restaurants on the lake accessible by boat, Ruttgers Bay Lake Lodge and The Lonesome Pine. This is a great place to spend your family vacation!
My husband and I have been on Bay Lake for over 20 years. It is such a gorgeous setting! Because of the many bays on the lake, you feel like you're on several lakes instead of just one. It's over 2100 acres of absolutely fantastic lakeshore!
We had an excellent long weekend getaway. Love your place, the lake, the fishing, the fun. Lots of fun family memories. We hope to repeat next year!?!?!
My husband and I rented this great cabin on Bay Lake and found it to be perfect and exactly as pictured. The cabin itself is clean, comfortable, well stocked and has everything you need. The location is easily accessible, quiet and the access to the lake is literally steps from the door. Bay Lake is indeed a lake that has something for everyone. We rented the pontoon and logged many hours cruising the lake and just enjoying the area. Weather you fish, kayak, ski, relax in a lawn chair, read or ride bikes..this property has it all. The cabin faces west and the campfire was set early every night, the sunsets were breathtaking. The property owners are great people, friendly, helpful, responsive and take pride in the cabin. The week flew by. You can't go wrong with this rental.
This cabin is comfortable, spacious and impeccably clean! The paddle boat provided hours of fun. The location is perfect.....quiet and at the end of the road. Bay Lake was the perfect fishing spot for panfish, and the owners were so helpful and friendly, and readily available with information about the surrounding area.
We really enjoyed a week of campfires, swimming, fishing and relaxing while listening to loons and enjoying the view.
My wife and I rented this cabin for a week and had out of town friends for the first half and family for the second half. Our experience, in a word, was "wonderful". If you aren't familiar with Bay Lake it's a great spot. Big enough to do all the water activities but small enough to feel comfortable and cruise the shores on a "happy hour tour". Two hours from Minneapolis with a gas stop, it's just far enough north to qualify as "up north" but close enough to the cities to be convenient.
The pictures don't do the home justice. All log inside, it certainly has that "cabin-y" feel. Nice decks off the front and back, a great charcoal grill, sandy bottom shoreline for swimming, and a flat lot all make it easy to move between the house and the lake/dock.
We were concerned that one bath wouldn't be enough….we had 4 adults and six kids the first half, and six adults and six kids the second half. The one bath was no issues. The kitchen was perfect for cooking food for the gang. We used the BBQ every night.
If you don't have a boat make sure you rent the Pontoon. It's in good shape and seats 12. It can pull a tube with 2-3 little (under 10) kids on it. It's mainly fun for cruising, fishing, and riding over to Ruttger's (get the donut's in the morning and ice cream in the afternoon).
The owners were very thoughtful and helpful. They checked-in every few days to make sure things were good, made sure we had supplies (firewood for the fire pit as an example), and gave great recommendations for the surrounding area.
We loved the home, the location, the ease-of-living and the owners. We highly recommend this cabin and look forward to returning next year!
I booked this beautiful home for a family vacation primarily because of its proximity to the lake--just out the front door! But there is much more than that to recommend it. The drive from the Twin Cities is reasonable -- less than 2 hours. The house was roomy--plenty for the 8 adults in our group. We never felt cramped or crowded. We loved the high quality towels and kitchenware and coffeemaker; much better than we expected in a rental! The lake itself is a marvel--big, with lots of good spots to fish and drop anchor to swim. The owners provided everything we needed and were great to work with. Either with the family or with the girlfriends, I plan to come again. There is also lots to do in the area; Bay Lake is close to other lakes, bike trails, hiking, shopping, good restaurants.
Love the location, the lake and the cabin!! It is a perfect getaway for anyone! Bay Lake is a wonderful recreational lake for skiers and boaters of all types! We love to cruise around the lake and just enjoy being Up North. Lots of activities close by and great places to eat...we especially enjoy Lonesome Pines. The owners are terrific to work with and very informative. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great cabin getaway!!
We have stayed here the last 2 years over the 4th of July and are staying again this year. The cabin is clean and has everything you will need. Its much larger than it looks. The views are awesome from every room in the cabin and the lake is a few steps away. We spend hours fishing, swimming or just relaxing on the dock. We also bring our own boat and there is plenty of room to tie it up to the dock. Had a bonfire in the lakeside firepit every night and the sunsets are amazing. There are lots of things to do in the immediate area and the owners are very helpful leading you in the right direction. Our family really enjoys staying here!
