Overview

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

Beautiful view and room for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend at this cabin. It was easily able to accommodate our friend group, and provided a space where we could have multiple activities going at one time. The kitchen area was equipped to suit most of our cooking needs, and the view was magical. Would absolutely stay here again!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 stay for the weekend here. So much room for all of us--the house is big and open, with gorgeous views of the lake. We had the fireplaces on when it was cool, and were on the pontoon all afternoon when it was warm. The hot tub is HOT, which was awesome. Kitchen is big and had everything we needed. Fall colors were at peak and we had the most gorgeous weather, so we walked all around the neighborhood for a long time. We played pool, and there are lots of dvds for a movie night. All in all, this is a gorgeous house that really makes people feel relaxed. Cindy was immediately responsive to all questions we had--excellent host! We're already picking our dates for next year, and a friend of mine has already booked because I recommended it so highly. Thanks so much!

Family Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We have done a few VRBO and this was top of our list! We live on the lake but knew family time would be more relaxing if we went somewhere with our kids/grandkids. The first day it rained so we cuddled up by the fireplace and enjoyed the board games, movies (with the amazing popcorn maker, seeds & bags included!!). The next 2 days it was beautiful and we enjoyed the lake, beach toys, games and fire-pit outside. We loved the pool-table and game systems (wished the ping-pong table was still there). The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need including hotel quality waffle maker! The bedrooms and bathrooms worked perfect for our family and were all so comfortable. We stopped in town and went to the Ice Cream Parlor for a little get away. It was an amazing time and the owners were available via phone if we needed anything. It is the perfect place for all ages....stocked with cribs, bunk beds, porta-cribs, toddler beds.......2 laundry rooms and the master suite was incredible!! The sunsets were breath-taking and perfect for family pictures!! Thanks so much for an amazing place that would allow our family to relax and reconnect before school starts. We WILL be back!!

Best. Place. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

I have been going through VRBO for about 10 years and this place is definitely the best value for your money. Tons of space, clean water, just everything I could have hoped for! We will definitely be back!

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!
