About the Property

Updated 3 bedroom, 2 Bath Seasonal Cottage

Our cabin is a 1200 square foot cabin that sleeps 10-11 people. We offer wireless internet, a 50 inch LED HD Smart TV with sound bar and subwoofer on the main floor. The sound bar is bluetooth capable so you can listen to your favorite songs off your smart phone or tablet. There is another 32 inch flat screen TV upstairs with a DVD player. We offer a fully furnished kitchen with a stove, fridge with ice maker, microwave, and a washer and dryer are available for your use. Every room has air conditioning and heat for your comfort. There is a large deck next to the lake with sun umbrellas, a gas grill and a fire ring. At the end of the dock there is an electric boat hoist with cover for boats 22 feet and smaller. You may reserve the hoist for your stay for an extra $125 per stay. Boat rentals are available through Great Lakes Marine Service. You may call 712-336-3822 to rent a boat or look them up online at http://www.greatlakesmarineservice.biz/index.html.

The cabin was remodeled during the winter of 2012-2013. We made improvements in the kitchen, the dining area, the downstairs bathroom, the living room, and then the upstairs bedrooms were insulated for comfort. New carpet was installed upstairs during the spring of 2015. The upstairs bathroom was remodeled during the winter of 2015/2016. Sleeping accommodations include 4 double beds, 2 single beds and a pull out couch. There is full bathroom on the main floor and a full bathroom upstairs. If you stay on the lower level, there are no large steps to overcome.

Pets are negotiable. We do not allow pets that shed inside the dwelling because of family allergies. We have had hunters and their dogs come and stay with us. The hunting dogs then stayed in their kennel at night in the garage. We maybe open to non shedding, hyper allergenic pets in the house. Contact the owner for more information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have been in and around the Iowa Great Lakes since the early 1980's. Our family is involved in education, business, accounting, construction, remodeling and property management.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans, IA, USA:
Location, Location, Location! Living on the south shore of Big Spirit Lake allows quick and easy access to town, restaurants, a shopping mall and all the amenities the Iowa Great Lakes has to offer. There is a drive inn 1/8 mile to the east and a family dining establishment called Gingham Inn 1/4 mile to the west.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin is simple, clean, affordable, right on the water and close to the public beach, boat ramp and dining establishments.
