Beautiful view and clear lake! Perfectly relaxing for our family of 4.
Just what we needed
This cabin really was great for what we wanted in for a vacation up north. It was quiet, within yards of the lakeshore and a wall of mostly windows to enjoy Lake Ethel rain or shine.
Well appointed kitchen, great location and a fabulous deck.
Thanks Bruce for sharing this cabin with us!
Fun at the lake
We enjoyed our stay. It was just as promised. Great vacation for the price!
Great retreat for peace, quiet and fish
Our second time staying there. Bruce is great to work with; neighbors are nice; cabin is clean and comfortable. Lots of fishing, mostly peaceful lake, quick access to Battle Lake for shopping/restaurants and turtle races! Good for families. Would love access to a motorized vehicle for tubing; not sure how to make that work on Lake Ethel.
Otter Tail County Fun
Property was well kept. Everything was represented well and the property had everything we needed to have a fun couple weeks at the lake! Thank you!!
Enjoy yourself on a very clear 200 acre lake. On a very busy day, you might see 4-5 boats using the lake, but generally, you will have the lake to yourself. When you need something else to do, enjoy one of two 18 hole golf courses or a 9 hole golf course, each less than 8 miles away. Glendalough State Park with its abundance of wildlife and antique stores are also nearby.
About Bruce Jonason
We have been enjoying Lake Ethel's beauty together since 1980 when Sandy's parents first purchased the property next door. We were fortunate enough to purchase that property from them in 1999 which enabled us to continue enjoying this beautiful lake. We live in the Twin Cities area and are raising six children, all of whom enjoy all Lake Ethel has to offer.
Bruce Jonason purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Bruce Jonason chose Battle Lake
We purchased a lake cabin on this lake from Sandy's parents who first purchased the property back in 1980. We have enjoyed spending time at this lake since then. As our six children continue to grow and eventually begin their own families, we anticipate the need for more space at the lake, so when this cabin became available, we purchased it to accommodate our family's future growth. In the meantime, we are able to share these great experiences with others.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cozy cabin sits just a few feet from the lakeshore, and you cannot help but feel relaxed as you enjoy fishing or boating by day and the cool breezes and loon calls at the campfire by night. This lot offers a shallow, weed-free swimming area, great for the kids! Feel free to bring your own boat or use ours and keep it on our small boat lift. We can provide you multiple ways to enjoy the lake: enjoy the view while connected to wi-fi, with a paddleboat, canoe, kayaks, or a sailboat if you would like--just ask us! For 2017, we are a licensed rental property in Otter Tail County!
