About the Property

Modern 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath Home, Relax In The Valley With Waterfront!

Fully furnished Retreat house set up to accommodate 9 Scrapbooking/Quilters as well as families or small groups looking for a great getaway home! The house is fully furnished with a main floor master bedroom and bath inclusive of a deep soaking tub and separate shower along with 2 lower level bedrooms and separate full bath. Each room is set up with a large bed and set of bunks to accommodate any group. The home has a total of 9 brand new beds (2 queens, 3 fulls and 4 twin) allowing ample space for multiple families and large groups!

For the late fall, winter and early spring season, the home is set up for crafters. The lower level living area is set up with 9 large craft tables for ample work space to accommodate the scrapbookers, quilters, stampers and any other similar hobbies. **PLEASE NOTE, there is a maximum of 9 guests for retreat groups as we are unable to facilitate groups beyond that size. ALSO TO NOTE for groups coming for other reasons during this time frame, the tables will remain set up in the lower living area and cannot be taken down or moved.


The house is close to Rochester for travelers visiting the Mayo Clinic (15.8 miles to downtown). Contact us for different package details if you are coming to the area as a patient as we offer additional services should you plan a stay and prefer a fully furnished home and kitchen instead of a hotel. (Additional options include but are not limited to airport pick-up/drop off, use of private vehicle or arranging of transportation available, arrival with stocked kitchen upon request, etc.)

Property is also located on the water front with access to Lake Zumbro via a short boat ride. Please note that Lake Zumbro is a reservoir and occasionally after heavy rains the lake will have a no wake zone until water recedes. Contact owner to check availability of a Pontoon and/or fishing boat. Lake Zumbro is known for its fantastic fishing of Bass and panfish. Kayaking and Canoeing along the quiet water front is also available at no additional cost.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a local family of 4 who has always enjoyed getting away to Lake Zumbro. We purchased this beautiful property as a way for us to continue to enjoy the area with a place of our own. With our busy schedules, we have decided to open our home up to other families who enjoy the similar getaways as we do. We are located on a huge lot allowing endless opportunities for tenting and outdoor recreational activities! We encourage you to visit, we know you'll love the escape just as much as we do!!!

Why the Owner Chose Oronoco, MN, USA:
As mentioned, we are less than 15 miles from Rochester, close enough to zip to town for activities, shopping or appointments at the Mayo Clinic but far enough away to feel like you have escaped the busy world and settled into pure R & R!! This property has tons of outdoor space inclusive of nearly 3 acres of yard, a huge deck to enjoy the views, a 3 season porch and a walk out basement with large patio. The home is fully furnished with everything you need to get away!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With the beautiful views and the peaceful setting, this is a great location for any family or group to get away! We are located up stream from Lake Zumbro giving us a quiet waterfront to enjoy but still a very short boat ride to the lake to enjoy fishing and water sports with your family and friends. A pontoon is available to rent during certain times of the year to allow maximum enjoyment at our home! There will be kayaks, and possibly a fishing boat available as well.
