About the property

Emily house description

Relax, unwind, get away, play,sun, swim, boat, explore, hunt, snowmobile, reunite, or just sleep in among 60 foot 150 year old whispering pines. This home built in 2006 is clean and spacious. Watch eagles, fish off the dock, sit on the deck or around a crackling campfire, with the moon and the stars overhead. 1200 acres of water await your splash. We provide a 2400lb. boat lift. Some of the nicest northern black crappies are found here. Take a walk in the forest. Trails for biking, walking, snowmobiling, abound. Restaurants like the Bungalow are accessible by boat. The Village Inn, The Narrows, and Granny's, are nearby with great food. The antique capital of the world is just a short drive into Crosby. Cross Lake is just 12 beautiful minutes away with gift shops, window shopping and touristy things to do. Nisswa is the tourist shopping king of the area.

Snowmobiling is king in the winter, with the heart of the northern trails beginning in Emily and right out our back door.

ATV trails also provide outstanding riding, more are in development every year.

The three levels of the house give you great separation, privacy, and multiple things to do. There are two gas fireplaces to cozy up to. A pool table, electronic darts, ping pong in the garage, and entertainment center in the walk out basement. There are 2 King size bedrooms with TV and cable, 2 Queen size bedrooms, one with a twin extra bed. A loft with 2 Queen beds, a Queen pull out sofa, fulfill the sleeping requirements for at least 13 people. 4 bathrooms 3 with bathing, and a master suite laundry and a lower level laundry, give you more than the comforts of home.

A fire pit with seating, and a pontoon for rent pretty much keeps you outside where the true north touches the soul.

Pack light. Come and here the wind whisper through the pines, the gentle waves against the shore and a step back into time where things are much simpler and back to nature. The people of the Emily area are the nicest friendliest people bar none.

About Cindy Gottwalt

The new owners of this beautiful lake home are Gene and Cindy Gottwalt. We reside in Royalton, MN and have six children, all of them are married. We have 24 grandchildren. Owning a lake home has been something we have always hoped to be able to accomplish. When our children were young, we were farming and envied other families who would head for the lake or even go camping. We will keep our home kid friendly with added games, movies ,toys etc. (any suggestions). It is our intention to keep up the excellence of the past renters and their experience with this vacation paradise.

Cindy Gottwalt purchased this house in 2014

A perfect place for our whole family

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough on how great this cabin was for us! The size was perfect, we have 5 couples with kids mixed in and we fit perfect. We had great fishing off of the pontoon, caught lots of Northern, perch, walleye, and even a 4lb-11oz largemouth bass! Great small beach area for the kids to play in and park the jetski's at night. The hot tub was a great perk! We will definitely be back again!

Awesome lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the 'Majestic Pines Retreat' several different times, and have always thoroughly enjoyed our visits. It is so roomy and comfortable, with plenty of space for the group to spend time together or apart. Kudos to the cleaning staff, the place was spotless. We had a relaxing, peaceful weekend get-away.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful place with us.

Girls weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful location for our girls trip. There were 8 of us who spent the weekend together, with more than enough space!! It was so nice to only worry about packing clothes and food, all kitchen gadgets and gizmos were already provided! The hot tub was a great feature and very relaxing. We were able to enjoy the nightlife in Cross Lake, taking advantage of their affordable shuttle service. We had many conversations about returning again; but, next time with our spouses and kids......seriously, so much space!!

Lots of space, good price

  • 3 of 5

Overall this cabin had what we needed for a group of 15 at a really good price. There is plenty of space, rooms, and beds. We like it because there is a great common space where we can all hang out. The cabin could use some fixing up, there are some things that are broken or falling apart (cupboards, doors), but mostly cosmetic stuff. We were bummed out that the ping pong is gone, and the hot tub wasn't working. The owners were very generous in making up for this though.

Friends Weekend Away With Small Children

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever VRBO trip and were not sure what to expect. We had a group of friends all with small children and wanted to get a weekend away together. Really liked the place, 1 bedroom in loft, 1 on main floor, 2 in basement. Room for all the kids to nap and adults to hang out all weekend. Hoping to plan a trip for next year! Only downfall was not due to owner. Hot tub broke right before we went but we were compensated for it! Brand new hot tub that was there and not installed yet gives us a good reason to want to go back!
