Cabin for Rent The Cottage On Clearwater Lake Right on Water! Beautiful Sunsets!

Bedrooms 1
Space 670 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 6 nights


About the property

670 Feet of Cozy Comfort Sleeps 6. Plus a 10 x 12 Cute detached 'Bunk House'.


RELAX and enjoy watching the water from your cottage that sits 30 feet from the shore of the lake.

Go for an early morning walk.

Lay in the hammock and read a good book.

Kids can swing all day long on the rope swing that goes out over the lake.

Take in the breathtaking sunsets as you sit on the spacious deck.

Sit around the fire on the beach as evening falls. Listen to the eternal sound of the Loons making their nightly call. Roast marsh-mellows before a comfortable nights rest.

EXPLORE the over 3200 acres of the lake that also has access to three other lakes. Bring your own boat (2 landings on the lake or land it right on site), or rent "Old Yeller" a 1977 Leisure Pontoon. Great for Fishing, Swimming or just Cruising. (In the pictures)

Ride around on the WaterWheeler Electric Paddle Boat (Seats 3). That's right it's a paddle boat with a built in trolling motor, so you can paddle all you want or drop the motor down and cruise. INCLUDED! (Exercise can be overrated when all you want is a good tan.)

Then there are the 2 Kayaks that will give your arms a workout, but are a blast to cruise around the lake.

DINE in the Waterfront restaurant, ON THE LAKE, or The Hitching Post Sports Bar & Grill just down the road. Many others located in Annandale (6 miles) or Clearwater (9 miles). 

FISH off the dock for pan fish & bass, or boat out 100 yards to the best fishing Minnesota Lakes have to offer: Walleye, Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike, Crappie. This is an awesome lake to fish! Especially, if you like to catch fish, because you will!

And There is NO SLOT LIMIT for Walleyes on the lake! (State regulations limit to 6 Walleyes with only one over 20 inches per fishing license.)

GOLF at one of several courses just minutes away.

The Cabin has an open floor plan with a new kitchen in 2010 that has white glass front cabinets, a farm sink, butcher block counter top, large refrigerator, gas stove top and electric convection oven.

The kitchen is FULLY EQUIPPED with ALL the Essentials & More:

Spices, Oils (Olive, Coconut & Vegetable), Flour, all Sugars, coffee & filters, tea, paper plates, cups, napkins, paper towels, plastic silverware (yes there is regular silverware).

Crock Pot, Electric fry pan, Blender, coffee maker, toaster, pots & pans & utensils.

Condiments: ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, miracle whip and a variety of salad dressings.

The bathroom was also completely renovated in 2015 and is fully equipped with a stack-able washer/dryer:

Toilet paper, towels, beech towels & wash cloths.

Laundry soap & dryer sheets.

Body wash, shampoo & conditioner.

When you are sitting in The Cottage looking out the picture window, it feels like you are right on the water-so soothing.

This cozy setting will comfortably sleep up to 6. The Cabin is 670 square feet of Air conditioned or Gas Fireplace heated comfort in an open floor plan.

There also is a detached "Bunk House" available . 10 x 12 with Knotty Pine & Woodsy Decor & air conditioning! This comfortably sleeps 2 on twin mattresses placed on over sized cots. Great for visiting guests or teens. (Additional $35 per stay)

CLEARWATER LAKE is the largest lake in the area and has the Clearwater River running through it which is a tributary of the Mississippi River. Which means when you step into the water on Clearwater Lake you are connected to all the 'Great Waters' of the world.

Paddle Boat

2 Kayaks

Life Jackets

2 Adult Bicycles (His & Hers)

About Carol Maanum

Both Randy and I grew up in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have two wonderful daughters and their spouses and 4 terrific grandchildren.

Carol Maanum purchased this cabin in 1979

Why Carol Maanum chose Metro

We are right on the water!

Literally 30 feet from the Cottage to the water.

The sand beach starts at the deck and goes out into the water.

This is why many choose The Cottage On Clearwater Lake.

This property has been in our family since the 70's.

Since we began to share our treasure, many priceless memories have been made.

We would love to share The Cottage with you, so that your families precious memories include your time at The Cottage on Clearwater Lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To lay in the hammock, gazing up at the cottonwoods, their leaves shaking to the rhythm of the breeze. Our last dinner, frying pan fish given to us by the neighbor.

As we drove home on 55 we'll remember our paddle boat trip. The comfort of the Cottage, the sound of the loons and of the acorns landing on the deck.

Even in the rain, The Cottage never lost it's charm, the big window holding dear the variegated sky.

I've read that heaven is a little closer in a place by the water, and in this place we felt serene.

Thank you very much, Randy & Carol, for opening your doors for us and sharing your wonderful Cottage. We had so much fun exploring & taking everything in. What a great Labor Day Weekend! We hope others enjoy it as much as we did.
