About the property

4 bed, 4 baths, sleeps 12. Resort home on Bass Lake, Heated Swimming Pool, Sau

Your own private resort property!

Beautiful Home with lake frontage on private Bass Lake with magnificent views from almost every room in the house and from the beautiful and private backyard pool area. There is over 100' of private lake frontage for fishing, boating, water skiing, kayaking and all fun summer waterr activities on this 165 acre lake! Enjoy these lake views from the backyard overlooking the lake or from the 42' heated in-ground pool. Pool has diving board at deep 10' end of pool. There is also a shallow area in the pool for small children.

OR if coming to the SUPER BOWL stay in this spacious home for a fraction of the cost for hotels. There are beds for 9-10 guests with two daybeds for an additional 2 more guests. We are a short 15-20 minute car ride to downtown Minneapolis and to the U.S. Bank Stadium. To round out your Super Bowl experience, you can also try out snowshoeing and ice fishing (we supply the equipment) for the real Minnesotan experience!

This is a very peaceful setting and you will love watching the wildlife both summer and winter, including a pair of Loons who nest every spring, numerous duck and geese families, eagles, visiting egrets every summer often seen resting on dock and an assortment of songbirds! Even the winter wildlife is a treat to watch, especially the eagles as they swoop around the lake. Yet, you are but short car ride into downtown Minneapolis for all that urban life offers as well as an equally short ride to the village of Wayzata with its restaurants by the water of Lake Minnetonka and shopping the lovely stores on Lake Street. Maple Grove, just voted one # 24 in best cities to live in the entire country is only 4 miles with a plethora of stores, restaurants and movie theaters.

There are three bedrooms, two with Queen beds and one with king-size bed. Additionally in the walk-out recreation area there is a bunkroom for three-four more persons, with bath with shower. The 1950's Swedish Day Bed sofas in the TV room on main level provide additional sleeping for two more persons. There are three full bathrooms and one half bath plus private office space. ALL of the rooms with the exception of one bedroom have views of the lake! There are three decks, all overlooking the pool and stunning lake views.

The first level contains formal living room, formal dining room, TV media room, office and well-equipped 'cook's' kitchen plus a screened-in porch for summer lounging and dining. The kitchen has two sinks, one for prepping and one for clean-up. The design of the kitchen makes it easy for the cook to efficiently prepare food as well as entertain in the kitchen when guests congregate!

The pool is heated and is a great lap pool as well as diving pool and shallow area for children learning to swim. The views from the pool of the lake are spectacular. The backyard is enclosed by fencing which is covered in wild grape vines. Other plantings of towering arborvitae and flowering hydrangea plantings ensure your privacy. There is also an outside sauna near the pool providing relaxation and health benefits.

As indicated, this property is very convenient to downtown Minneapolis less than 9 miles from the house to center of Minneapolis. The property is also less than 9 miles to the charming village of Wayzata with trendy shopping and restaurants. There are also many restaurants in Plymouth/Maple Grove less than one or two miles from the house so that you can maximize your fun in the sun by the lake and pool and not worry about cooking; however the kitchen is a cook's delight and has all the amenities you would expect!

Really enjoyed this property and location. Kids were in the pool every single day. Janice was spectacular to work with. Will definitely look forward to renting this property again in the future.

Great Family Lake Cottege

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place to stay in for our vacation in Minnesota. The bedrooms were great and provided sleeping accommodations for my family. This is the first time I have stayed at a lake home with a pool and it was where we spent a majority of time. There was also a sauna that we used most days. The weather was good so we went out on the kayaks on the lake. There was a gym room in the first floor with weights to work out daily. We had breakfast in the screened in porch over looking the pool and lake and pool. Maple Gove was close by for shopping and movies. Minneapolis was 30 min away to visit our niece and other attractions like the zoo or mall of America. The kitchen was great for cooking and it was well supplied with spices. Janice is a lovely host, and made sure that we felt at home and had everything we needed. Great house for families and any group of friends and family. We will be back again. Thanks Janice for allowing us to stay at your lovely home.

family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property absorbed myself and my four children with families. There were 13 of us in all and you would think a three bedroom wouldn't do it but really there are four rooms upstairs. One bedroom has been made into a dressing room attached to the master. We had kids on mattresses in there. Myself and my single son slept in the basement on daybeds and the three couples each had their own bedroom and space for small kids to overflow. The best part of the rental was the pool. With five small kids from three families we were all on different schedules but having our own pool allowed us to spend hours in it. The adults as well as the kids enjoyed this great pool with a diving board and deep end. There were noodles and floating chairs and some toys with the pool. We used the Pungo kayaks a few times and the cockpits are large enough for a kid to sit in with you and still have room to paddle. The kitchen was wonderful. We cooked all our dinners with many people pitching in and there was plenty of space. We often ate on the screened porch which accommodated all of us and had a great side table for serving. We went into the city once and it was easy to get there and back out. We also went to the neighborhood playground once and that was a treat for the kids. About 4 miles away there is a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes in the same parking lot. It made our shopping and planning so easy. There was a nice big screen TV in the family room which was hardly turned on except for the womens world cup. This was a whole family event and the room accommodated all 13 of us very nicely,although the 9 month old didn't really get into it. The picture was great on the TV. I would definitely recommend this as a place to for large groups with small children. Having the pool was wonderful. Janice and Tim were great hosts. Thank you

Great place for family time!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home to stay in while visiting the Minneapolis area with family. We spent much of our time in the house as we had a few little ones. The home easily accomodated my husband and me, my 85 yr. old Mom, my son & daughter-in-law and their 2 children, and my daughter and son-in-law with their one yr. old daughter. The bedroom accomodations were such that everyone had their own space. Janice could not have been more gracious and accomodating --- even getting some sand toys for the kids. (Unfortunately, due to lots of rain that week, the beach was not accessible.) Janice is a lovely host, and made sure that we felt at home and had everything we needed. Everyone had a great time in the pool. We spent a lot of time on the screened-in porch, where we got great evening breezes and saw beautiful sunsets. The porch was my favorite place, and was a perfect spot for the kids to play or draw, and each night the adults played games until late after the kids went to bed. Great house for families, girls getaways, and any group of friends and family. Close to the city and things to do - we got to the zoo, downtown Minneapolis, the Falls --- none more than 1/2 hr to 45 minutes away. Found a few great playgrounds nearby. Nice quiet neighborhood, on a great scenic lake. Thank you, Janice, for your warm hospitality and graciousness! Hope to visit again sometime!
