About Kate

My family and I enjoyed renting a cabin every year...and we finally took the plunge and purchased one of our own! This beautiful handicap accessible cabin was built in 1995. It is on a 1 acre lot with no neighbors on either side-very private and a wild life preserve a stone's throw away! We enjoy making sand castles, sitting in floaties with our favorite beverage, taking the pontoon to town for dinner and fishing, fishing, fishing!

We decided to rent our cabin out during the times that we are not able to be there. We hope you enjoy your time on Shell Lake as much as we do!

Kate purchased this house in 2013

Why Kate chose Shell Lake

We chose this property because of the sandy beach and flat 1 acre lot. We also enjoy being less than a 5 minute drive or 10 minute boat ride to town...but with no next door neighbors! We like that the cabin is less than 2 hours from the Twin Cities!

What makes this house unique

Our cabin on Shell Lake is unique in that it is handicap accessible on a flat lot with a dock and sandy, shallow beach. We have a resident loon family and I see at least 5 eagles every single time I am there. We also have a resident deer that enjoys our beach!

What a great cabin

  • 5 of 5

I'm a little afraid to give it a good review in a totally selfish way! Great, updated kitchen with everything you need. Very comfortable beds. Amazing location and the lake to boot. Super well laid out. I'll be back.

Very clean, well stocked with essentials, water was clean, & there were lots of activities to keep us busy. My kids loved the fact that they could catch big fish right off the dock! We will be coming back!!

What a Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation and also rented the Pontoon Kate had available which was a great choice as we cruised the lake and fished. The nights were also great around the fire. We even came across a turtle laying eggs in the backyard. The cabin is nice and private but close to everything you may need. Our boys even rented atv's in the town close to the cabin and we went sight seeing. Hope to go again for a whole week next time
