About the property

Spacious lakefront home, level lot on premier clean lake 2 hrs from Minneapolis

Bay Lake Bliss is less than 2 hours from the Twin Cities, making it a quick trip to the relaxation and fun of being up north.

Bay Lake Bliss is tucked in a small bay and right off the shoreline the water is clear, clean, shallow, and has a hard sand bottom making it a great area to play for kids and adults alike. Bay Lake is nearly 2400 acres and offers lots of space for fishing and recreational water sports. Boat to Ruttgers or Lonesome Pine for cocktails or dinner. Take the kayaks or paddle boat and explore the lake. Bring your boat or jet skis and enjoy all the lake has to offer. Pontoons are also available to rent from marinas right on Bay Lake. The large level lawn is great for playing the many yard games and toys stocked for guest use.

Beds are available in all sizes from king, queen, full and twin making it perfect for a group. You might want to take a nap or read a book on the chaise in front of the wall of windows overlooking the lake. There is a closet full of games, cards and puzzles for rainy days.

The large kitchen makes it easy to prepare your favorite dishes. There are plenty of dishes, glasses, pots, & pans, and small appliances. The dining table expands to over 9 ft seating up to 12 and an additional game table provides even more seating. The stone fireplace with a wood burning stove in the great room is perfect for gathering around to watch movies on the big screen TV, either on DVD or stream your favorite shows over the provided high speed internet and Apple TV.

Why Mary Steinbeck chose Bay Lake

We love to travel and have been renting vacation homes all over the country and internationally. We have been exploring different Minnesota lakes and fell in love with the beauty and clear water of Bay Lake. Soon after entering this home, we knew it would be a perfect vacation home for families and friends to gather.

What makes this house unique

Bay Lake Bliss is the perfect setting for extended family members to gather and create memories, or a couple of families wanting to share a comfortable vacation together. The tongue and groove vaulted ceilings and walls create a classic up north feel that invites you to relax and unwind. We want you to experience the relaxation and restoration at a beautiful and well equipped home on a premier Minnesota lake.

This property is a perfect spot for a gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend for shopping in Little Falls. We chose this house as it would fit us all nicely and still be a manageable drive to the craft fair. There is a beautiful lake (which we didn't use) that we enjoyed looking out upon. I heard fishing was great right now for Sunnies and Croppies. The house was absolutely beautiful and we loved the dinning room table to hang out at and play games. The deck was also a really nice gathering spot. I would recommend this wonderful property to anyone. We only wish we could have stayed longer; like another five days!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your 5 star review! You had beautiful weather your weekend, as I recall. The Little Falls craft fair is amazing. We love the expansive deck overlooking the yard and lake; glad you did, too! Thanks again for choosing Bay Lake Bliss.

Amazing house! Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Bay Lake Bliss visiting with relatives. The house had everything you could need. The kids had a wonderful time playing in the Lake, despite the variable weather that week, and adults and kids enjoyed many of the board and yard games that were provided. We also had several peaceful paddling excursions in the available kayaks. Mary and Tim were warm and inviting, and appear to think of everything. If we ever have the chance to go out to Minnesota again, we will definitely try to stay here again!

Tim and Mary provide everything you could possibly need at a cabin. The home was clean with enough beds,

bedrooms and plenty of dining room space for 11 people. The cabin was perfect for all ages. We would definitely rent again. Hopefully the next time the weather will cooperate. You won't be disappointed.

We had extended family visiting for a wedding, and stayed here as a group after the wedding. We can't recommend this place enough. The house was well equipped ( even a small bait refrigerator, and two coffee pots ). It was very clean. The children and grandchildren enjoyed the paddle boat and kayaks. The home has yard games and furniture. There is a fire ring. We rented a pontoon boat one day (Hansen's Marine) for a day of fishing. A great vacation! We can't think of anything else we would have wanted.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home had great accommodations for a large family. We had 6 adults and 7 children and never felt crowded or in each others way. The kitchen was organized and well equipped, you don't have to bring a thing! Many games for children and adults to play if you have a rainy day or two. The property is clean and has all of the outdoor chairs, tables etc. needed. We appreciated the two docks because we brought two boats.

Thank you so much Mary for your wonderful hospitality and allowing us to rent your home for our family vacation.

Beautiful Property and Lake

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for our large family and accommodated all our needs from young to old. The large deck and yard were fabulous for relaxing outside and playing games. The shed was filled with toys and the kayaks and paddle boat were enjoyed by everyone. The cabin itself had great inside space, good sleeping arrangements, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we could desire. The games cupboard was filled with great puzzles, games and toys. Bay Lake has so much to explore we can't wait to return. Mary is delightful to work with. We've done lots of VRBOs and this one is the best.
