About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Relax and enjoy the sunsets at the Moon Song Cottage on beautiful Spring Lake! Visit our webpage at

The Moon Song cottage was purchased and is owned by Christopher Moon and his wife Dona. Moon was the Producer and songwriter for the musician 'Prince' and credited with discovering Prince here in Minnesota. Moon wrote three of the four songs on the demo tape that ultimately secured Prince with the largest recording contract Warner Brothers had ever signed for a young new artist. The Moon Song cottage was paid for from the royalties of a single song Moon originally wrote for Prince 40 years ago. Thus we named the cottage 'Moon Song'.

The 2000+ square Moon Song cottage has been fully renovated with modern amenities, but retains all the historical charm. The Moon Song cottage is on a large and very private private 3/4 acres lake lot with over a 100 feet of west facing frontage. It has a three season porch, great room, fireplace, master suite/bath, 3 additional bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It also includes Kayaks, a paddle Boat, a paddle board, row boat, a private dock, bikes, basketball hoop, rainbow playground and yard games. We also have pontoon boat rental available from the private dock.

Spring Lake: The Moon Song Cottage is located on the eastern shore of the 300 acre SPRING LAKE. Spring Lake is located 2 miles south of the town of Prior Lake in Scott County, Minnesota. The lake is primarily managed for walleye and largemouth bass and secondarily managed for northern pike and bluegill. It is considered one of the best fishing lakes in the entire area and well known for its great Bass fishing. One of the best fishing spots is right off the dock of this property and at certain times of the year one can sit on the dock and catch fish after fish with barely a break in between. Spring Lake is also wonderful recreational lake for any family to enjoy. The Shakopee Prior Lake Water Ski Association has a slalom course and ski jump. Everyone on the lake enjoys seeing acrobatic practices and shows.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent a few days at the Moon Song Cottage and had a blast with some girlfriends. The cottage is located in a perfect area. Right on the lake, it has beautiful views and is incredibly relaxing. The layout is great with a lot of kitchen space and a porch you can use year-round. I'd love to visit during the summer.

And while the location of the home feels intimate, it's conveniently located minutes from a grocery store. There are a bunch of great restaurants and cute shopping. If you're looking to go further, Ubers are easily reachable and affordable. We had such a great time and will definitely go back.

Fabulous Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a few days at the Moon Song Cottage with a family reunion. It just had to be the right choice; our name sake. We couldn't have picked a better place or spot to have everyone gather. The Cottage was very clean and extremely comfortable with plenty of room for a large family group. While we didn't get a chance to use all the facilities provided, there was some fishing done and watersports. The kitchen was really well appointed with everything you could possibly need. As we did a lot of our own cooking we gave the kitchen a good run. A good size fridge was also a great plus. The views from the cottage across the lake are just magic and we were lucky enough to have a wonderful sunset. Our favourite room to sit, relax and admire the view was the sunroom (or what we'd call a sunroom). The kids are well catered for with plenty of room to run around, and lots of toys (including a ping pong table, football table, bikes and more) for their use. There are nearby stores to pickup any forgotten items, and restaurants if you don't want to cook. We couldn't have asked for more and everyone had such a wonderful time. We'd recommend this cottage to everyone. We will definitely return.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Moon Song Cottage and loved it! The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for our family of five. The property was beautiful and had excellent views of the sunset every night. It was so nice to have all the water toys right at the cottage. The ping pong table and foosball table were a big hit with the kids too. We rented a boat from Prior Lake Pontoon Rental for most of the week. They were very accommodating and delivered the boat right to the dock. We hope to stay here again next summer!

Wonderful stay over Thanksgiving '15

  • 5 of 5

What a charming and lovely cottage! The site is so beautiful, too! On the lake with perfect vistas and gorgeous sunsets. And there are so many amenities nearby. Restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, boating, golf, the casino. It's a great location with so much available to do or simply relax with the view and beautiful grounds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Comfortable, Welcoming and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! We really enjoyed our stay, and all the extra touches everywhere. The kitchen is well stocked and ready to use, and we were so thrilled with the assortment of outdoor play items. Our only regret was not having more time to make use of everything. The beds are very comfortable and I don't think I could get tired of the lake view.

Perfect family holiday with the most amazing sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with three children (13, 8, and 4) who now live overseas, but return to Minnesota each summer to visit family and friends. We are not comfortable staying such a long time with family, and hotels are much too small and confining. So, both this summer and last summer, we rented a lake cottage. All I can say is that it has been such an amazing experience. We stayed for a month and we thoroughly enjoyed every day we had together.

We felt at home the minute we walked in the door. The management has thought of everything to make your stay as wonderful as possible. Every amenity was provided, from the beach towels stacked by the back porch, to the fully stocked kitchen, to the huge selection of indoor and outdoor games and toys. We had bicycles with helmets in the garage waiting for us and we enjoyed daily bike rides around the quiet neighborhood. My children and their cousins and friends were so busy playing in the lake and in the front yard, that they rarely turned on a television or ipad in an entire month. My husband woke up every morning and went fishing off the end of the dock with our 4 year old daughter, and to my delight, even cleaned and cooked the fish for us for dinner. My sons and I had kayak races back and forth along the lake. My family and friends came to visit us regularly and we had several family barbeques. There was no fighting about whose house we should stay at during our vacation, because everyone wanted to stay with us! I honestly treasure the time we spend at the house and am so happy to pass on the Minnesota lakes summer experience to my own children.

We felt safe and relaxed and enjoyed each others company so much. Cindy was always available and helpful and we really didn't have any concerns or problems during our stay. The shops and restaurants were just minutes away so we didn't have to drive forever for a gallon of milk. Best of all, we were literally 30 minutes to downtown! We had plenty of time to see friends, go to the mall, and visit downtown restaurants, and still be home for an evening swim. The sunsets were breathtaking and we have made a massive canvas enlargement of a picture I took of the sunset from the dock that now hangs on our wall here in Dubai. I smile every time I see that picture.

I highly recommend this cottage to families visiting from out of town or just wanting to "be at the lake" for a while. I will never stay at another hotel in the cities again!

Thank you Cindy!!
