About the property

5 bedroom, 3 full bathroom, only 4 yrs old.. located on 3.8 acres..

This spacious 4 yr old lakefront two story walkout home will be just the place for you, your family, your extended family or large group.

This lot also has a sand volleyball court, a large sandbox with swings for small children, paddle boat, canoe, kayak, and two docks to suntan or catch sunfish, bass or walleyes.

Kandiyohi County hosts many lakes but Little Norway Lake is a spring fed lake that is part of a chain of 4 lakes, which can be accessed through channels. This includes Big Norway, Little Norway, West Norway and Games Lake. Little Norway Lake has calmer waters than the other three lakes, making it easier for swimming, water skiing, wakeboarding, paddle boarding and tubing. A great place to canoe and enjoy the loons!

There is much to do in the surrounding area from golfing, farmers markets, biking trails, specialty shops, a local craft brewery and winery.

Fall visitors have one of the most beautiful areas with the maple trees turning colors. The nature walks are very relaxing.

Winter visitors can enjoy cross country skiing, ice fishing and many miles of connected snowmobile trails.

The lakefront home is on a quiet dead end road and is located approximately 13 miles north of Willmar.

This place is awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start, this place was perfect for our family of 11. It had everything we wanted for our family vacation. The house was perfect and had everything you needed in it. Outside was very enjoyable. Grandkids loved the sandbox, playing in the water and the adults liked fire pit, volleyball, and nice decks, kayaks were a hit!! All the toys you needed right at your fingertips. We enjoyed family croquet each night. Each morning grandma and three year old spent time in the garage with play kitchen, trike and shopping carts while everyone else slept in. Ken was so helpful and Max the dog always came to say hi. If you're looking for a fun place to rent, this is the place!!!

Owner's Response: HI Chris, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Not sure what to say as I have exchanged them out. Maybe I need to go to a different manufacturer. Thanks for staying. Ken

Perfect for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lake home bordered by flowers was recently constructed, with three beautiful full bathrooms and new appliances. The owner, Ken, was personable and accommodating and left helpful notes and instructions. His house was comfortable, impeccably clean, and thoughtfully furnished to include a pool table, TVs upstairs and down, boxed games, and books for all ages. Dishes and glassware were new and plentiful, and there was an abundance of pots, pans and cooking utensils. Outside, the large lawn, surrounded by trees, was one of the nicest I’ve seen at a lake home. Family members spent many hours fishing off the sturdy dock where sunnies bit readily. We enjoyed a cool breeze from the scenic lake during the day and sitting around the newly built fire pit at night. New London and Spicer are lovely towns with fun shops, good restaurants, and friendly people. Our family enjoyed an exciting performance by the Little Crow Water Ski Team in New London.
