This property is in a nice location on a great lake.
The house was clean and ready to go when we arrived.
The owners worked with us well on getting everything in order for our stay.
There were 10 of us (4 families) in the house and all were comfortable. We could have had a few more and been ok.
My brother and his family (4 people) were also staying in the area and ate with us 5 different times - no space issues. Very comfortable.
Access to the lake is good, though with my bad knees, the steps were some times an issue. No issue for the kids or grandkids though.
I think I would have to stay three weeks to take full advantage of all the amenities in this house, especially the living room and deck areas. The game room kept the kids busy when going outside was difficult due to the weather.
I found the house to be a very good value for the money.
If you need extra space for a number of people, this is the place to stay.
Family Reunion at the Lake
WoW, WoW, & WoW :-)
This rental engulfed us in Lake Living at its finest, met and exceeded all of our needs, and provided opportunity for the magic of family! It was the absolutely perfect venue for our group!
Spectacular Week! Thank-You!
Absolutely lovely home!
This lake home is beautiful, very spacious and well stocked! We gathered for an annual couples weekend and we were all very pleased with the accommodations. And the view...outstanding! From my first encounter with the owner, everything was perfect! Rent this home...you will not be disappointed!
Wonderful location for big groups of friends or family!
We took our entire staff here for a weekend retreat and had a blast! Lots of space, very clean, had everything we needed. Very kind owners to work with. Thank you Welle's!
Beautiful huge and spacious property perfect for families
What a great house. We had 10 guys on a cousins golfing and poker playing weekend. We'd stayed previous years at a resort on the Lake which was great but getting a bit small. I reached out to the owners of this house and was not disappointed. There was something for everyone. Pool tables, Foose Ball and a great kitchen with multiple refrigerators and multiple bathrooms. For those with children there is a LOT of space to run around and soft carpet for babies to crawl on hands and knees. We used the amazing deck and loved that it walked us right down to the dock where a few of us swam on a very sandy floored lake. I am 6 ft 3 in and the water was not past my chest for over 300 yards so the Lake is perfect for small kids as well. Beds were comfy. Clean sheets and blankets and pillows and all the untensils and dishes you need are there. Otter Tail is only 5 minutes away so you can get items you may have forgotten. Totally worth the cost. Thanks guys.
A week at Ottertail Lake July 28-August 4, 2017
Our family of 16 spent a week at this spacious lakeside home. Weather was great, accommodations more than adequate for 9 adults and 7 children. It was my intent to have my four sons, their wives, and seven grandchildren share memorable times together away from their usual busy lives. This location more than met our expectations. We swam, pontooned, paddleboarded, shared meals together all in a beautiful setting. We were joined one afternoon by my siblings and their families for a reunion. Beds were comfortable, linens provided were more than adequate. I would highly recommend for a stay for your family get together at the lake! The Welle family was great to work with in setting up this special family outing! Thank you from all of us.
If you like pizza, Zorbaz is a great place on Ottertail Lake to eat. If you love to golf there are 2 courses within 5 miles of our lodge. Both courses are challenging and fun to play. If you have kids there is a wonderful ice cream store in Battle Lake called Granny's Pantry. Battle Lake also has a grocery store, several restaurants, several bars, a bait shop, and a liquor store. Our property is approximately 12 miles from Battle Lake. There is a nice hospital located in Perham, which is 15 miles north of our lodge. Perham also is a great town to visit.
