About the Property

Lakefront living at it's finest!

You don't need to look any further! The Waterfall on Prior Lake has it all. This Home away from Home features a two-tiered back yard pond with a waterfall!

With several sitting areas in the yard, you can watch the sunset, enjoy the fire in the beach-side fire pit, listen to the waterfalls or enjoy the lakeside on Brenda's favorite bench swing! Even the dock has a bench for relaxing while fishing! Relax on the upper level deck or lower level patio.

The lake is known for fishing - winter, spring, summer and fall! Rumor has it there is even some fish-catching happening now and then!

There are also many recreational activities nearby including public beaches, golf, ski hills, and even a playground up the road!

We are located about 15 minutes from Mall Of America, Minneapolis Airport, Mystic Lake Casino and much, much more. A short 30 minute ride from Downtown opens the doors for entertainment and dining that ranges from a casual nightclub atmosphere to very fine dining.

This Home is fully furnished - walk right in and enjoy. The 3 bedrooms upstairs include a Master Oasis Suite with a King sized Bed, soaking tub and private deck. There is a Queen bed room with a dresser and nightstand as well as a bedroom with 2 trundle beds that sleeps 4!

The Main Level Office can be used to catch up on work, social media or just to download all of the fabulous photos! It comes complete with a pull out sofa that sleeps 1 or 2!

The main kitchen boasts granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances! Everything is in place if you choose to cook! There is a BBQ grill outside ready for you to prepare those fish you caught today!
The formal Dining Room features a Lake View!

MN winters are much warmer curled up in the chairs near the gas fireplace in the Cozy Living Room.

The Grand Piano in the Piano Room off of the entryway rounds out the fabulous Main Level of this Home.

Downstairs you will be impressed by the Brand New Kitchenette set up to serve lakeside lunches, pizza, snacks and fun! You will also enjoy the newly remodeled bathroom and game room! Just pass through the door to the HUGE family room featuring TV, Game System, DVD player and movies and games in case there is a rainy day or you just need time in from the sunshine!

Walk right out the back door to your beautiful backyard. Outside spaces include a beach,dock and boat lift. A large private deck, tiered ponds with a fountain, fire pit, sandy beach and just enough grass for a game of catch or horseshoes. There is no shortage of things to do at this beautiful property!

Car: Recommended

Due to liability reasons, we are unable to provide a boat, but there is access to boat rentals on Prior Lake with a dock and boat lift provided.

Prior Lake features many recreational amenities including more than 54 parks on 1,000 acres, over 100 miles of trails and sidewalks and 14 lakes. Taken together, the parks and lakes offer a wide variety of outdoor opportunities for residents with a wide variety of interests.

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) is located in Prior Lake and is the largest employer in the county. They offer their own array of opportunities to the public including restaurants, Playworks, Dakotah! Fitness, Dakotah! Ice Center, two casinos and a hotel.

Golfing opportunities abound in the Prior Lake area with the Wild's Golf Club, Legends Golf Club, Heritage Links Golf Club, Cleary Lake Golf Course and the Meadows at Mystic Lake Golf Course.

Opportunities in commercial and industrial development are increasing due to growth and improved highway accessibility and upgrades. Prior Lake's downtown environment has been revitalized by the Main Ave. and Dakota St. streetscaping project of 2004 and a façade improvement program.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: As a licensed Real Estate Agent, I have experience with Buying, Selling and Renting Homes throughout the Twin Cities Area. Managing this Vacation Rental is one of my favorite experiences. You will see from the moment you walk in the door how much thought and care has been put into the details of this Home Away from Home. I am within 20 minutes of the house if you need anything and work with licensed and insured companies for any housekeeping, maintenance or repairs that you may need during your stay. When I am not wearing my Real Estate hat, I enjoy a good swim, fishing, reading and spending time with my family. My husband and I have 2 children, ages 21 and 17 and 2 dogs. We love going to the car races, heading to the movies and simply hanging out with friends around the BBQ.

Why Prior Lake, MN, USA:
The owners chose this property because of its perfect location. Close to everything, this property also offers an amazing lake view and lakefront right out your back door. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have! We recently renovated the lower level and have been adding many personal touches to it to make it the perfect vacation home for you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is located on Lower Prior Lake. My favorite thing about this property is that there are so many sitting areas in the back yard to choose from. Near the upper pond you will find a bench with a great view of the lake. The large deck is a great space for entertaining or simply enjoying your coffee. The walk-out patio downstairs has seating for a casual outdoor meal. One of the favorite outside spots is the Swing in the Shade down by the lake. Of course, we would not want to overlook the fire pit patio for a relaxing evening fire before bed! There is no shortage of outdoor living! Inside, you will find an immaculately kept home with lots to offer. Fully furnished with linens, bath towels, and even some beach towels provided! The kitchen is stocked with dishes, some serving dishes, blender, toaster, coffee maker and more. The lower level family room has a WII with several game choices, books and board games for when you are sun drenched or a rainy day. The new remodel boasts a kitchenette for snack or lake food prep and a room with a bumper pool table (under the game table). The office (just in case you need to check in) has a great view of the lake and WiFi is included in your stay. The grand piano room is open to the formal living area with a gas fireplace to relax next to. You will be staying a short drive from downtown Minneapolis and downtown St Paul, Mystic Lake Casino, Canterbury Downs, Mall of America, parks, beaches, shopping, restaurants and more!
