About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 bathrooom cabin on a private lot with stunning views

Why stay at a crowded busy resort when you can enjoy a private sandy beach from your own cabin? Spend your days swimming with the kids, enjoying some world class fishing or reading a good book in the hammock.

Recently updated private cabin on the east side of Mille Lacs Lake that sits on a 1 acre lot. (130' wide x 350' deep) Fantastic ocean like views to the west, Doe Island to the south and Big Point to the north. The property is located in "Sunset Bay", you'll discover why it's called this once you experience the postcard like evening views. Over 30 mature trees for shade and privacy but more than enough open space for yard games. Flat elevation from cabin to lake, that leads to a sugar sand beach. (Some of the shoreline has rip rap for erosion prevention) Where you enter the water is essentially a zero entry pool, (perfect for small children) extremely gradual deepening of the water, and on normal water level years, it's roughly 4 feet deep, 300 feet from shore. Fantastic for swimming, kayaking, paddle boards, etc. No weeds and sandy bottom.

1,040 square foot Cabin is equipped with 2 bedrooms and one bath.

- Bedroom one has a queen bed.

- Bedroom two has a bunk bed (single top and double bottom) and additional queen bed. TV with DVD player also.

- 3 piece bathroom (toilet, sink and bathtub/shower) Bath towels provided.

Living room area has a couch and love seat, 42" flat screen with satellite TV, DVD player, Wii game system (20+ games for those rainy days) and coffee table large enough for family game nights. Assortment of board games, books and movies.

Full, well equipped kitchen stocked with pretty much all the essentials of home. Eat in kitchen, table has seating for up to 6.

Nice deck on the front (lakeside) of the cabin with 2 large wrought iron tables and 8 chairs, along with a gas grill. The cabin is roughly 60 feet from the beach so adults can relax on the deck and still keep a close eye on the children.

The property is located near some of the best fishing areas of the lake - Shaws Reef, Big Point, Doe Island Reef are within a 2 mile boat ride. Toucans restaurant (part of The Wharf Resort) is a mile by road and 3/4 of mile by boat for those meals that you don't want to prepare yourself. There are many other resorts and restaurants within a short drive of the cabin. Isle is five miles away with a well equipped grocery store, great bakery, bowling alley and quaint shopping.

For winter sports lovers, the HWY 47 snowmobile trail is close by. This trail connects to hundreds of miles of other maintained snowmobile trails. There are multiple cross country ski trails in the area as well.

About Adam Laidlaw

We are two professionals with two kids who live just over an hour from our lake place. We enjoy getting away from it all and heading to the lake for fun, rest and relaxation.

Why Adam Laidlaw chose Mille Lacs Lake

We purchased this property in February 2014 after many years of scouring the real estate ads for " the perfect place". It has the best sand beach, awesome sunset views and the peace and quiet we were looking for. All on a great fishing lake.

Stayed at this cabin for a week with my family of 5. Cabin was spotless upon arrival and was equipped with everything we needed for the week. Beautiful level lot with a great beach for the kids. Loved that there was a bin of beach toys, buckets and shovels to play with! We enjoyed fishing and water sports and just relaxing on the deck. Owner gave us some great information on where to find fish! We had some rainy days and appreciated the Wii games, board games and DVD library. A couple minor issues were immediately addressed by the owner. Location is great - we traveled by boat to dinner a couple nights and there is a decent grocery store and some little shops nearby in Isle.

Excellent getaway for a very busy family.

Very happy with our choice. We have stayed at Mille Lacs many times over the years. We enjoyed our recent stay and loved this cabin. Very clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for our family of five. Our boys loved swimming in the lake and sitting by the fire each night. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more honest. Would highly recommend this rental. Close to Buzzie's Bar (great food and friendly people) and close to town. Perfect getaway for a busy Southern family.

My wife and i have been searching for a fun, great fishing and relaxing place to bring the family. Well we found PARADISE here, we met with the owners and what a wonderful family. We arrived to a clean comfortable, cozy cabin that the second we walked through the door all the stress and worries disappeared. The kids played in the yard, swam in the lake with nothing but sand, we went out fishing and caught all kinds of great fish and if you ask the owner nicely, he will help you find some hot spots for some great fishing. He is very knowledgeable on fishing and where and when and what to catch, just bring up snowmobiling and he might even tell you where his hot spot is... The evenings are amazing with the beautiful sunsets, the peacefulness of the surrounding's. Sitting around the bonfire at night listening to the loons, roasting marshmallows with the family was amazing. I have been telling all my friends if they are looking for paradise, this is it and it's just over an hour from ST. Cloud. Can't wait to go back to PARADISE....

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for my family with small kids. The beach was awesome. We spent most days just swimming and relaxing. The boys did do a fishing charter one evening and had a great time. Was close to several restaurants and we did a little shopping in Isle. Cabin is equipped with everything you might need. We will be back!

There is an UNIMPROVED (no concrete ramp or dock) township boat access roughly 150yds north of the cabin for boat launching small boats.. (either tie off to our dock or beach your boat at our cabin). Or, there is an improved access (concrete ramp and dock) about 1 mile south (Cedar Creek access) or 5 mile north at Liberty Beach access (launch harbor, concrete ramps and docks) Or, you can put in at one of the local resorts for their facility use fee. (usually $10 launch fee) It is highly recommended that you take your boat out each night because there is 12+ miles of water to the west and south west. (The waves can reach 4+ feet as they roll into shore when it's windy) Not a good situation for a boat tied off to the dock or beached. Again, I highly suggest that you DO NOT tie your boat off to the dock or beach it over night.
