About Elizabeth Carlson

My husband and I own and operate a contracting & consulting business. We have three children, which keep us busy. Both my husband and I grew up in the area and reside only a few minutes away from The Cottage.

Elizabeth Carlson purchased this house in 2012

Why Elizabeth Carlson chose Minnesota

This property is close to our home, and we saw potential with the house. We've always been told we have the 'gift of hospitality', so we decided to combine our carpentry skills with our 'gift.' We renovated the entire house and gave it a home-y feel. We hope people enjoy staying at The Cottage as much as we enjoyed renovating it and we will strive to make your vacation experience a memorable one!

Cozy and convientent

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of people stay in the house and had no issue finding a spot for everyone to sleep. Kept very clean with a convent location for snowmobiles with nearby gas station and trails within walking distance.

Home away from home
