Beautiful, Clean, Clear Lake Just Over An Hour From Minneapolis
Why Becky Fitzsimmons chose Cold Spring
This is truly a place where country living meets lake life. Hear cows mooing, get farm fresh eggs, wonderful bird watching...loons, cranes, and bald eagles. Hike at nearby St. John's University. Visit the Quarry ( a top ten watering hole in the US) Several new micro breweries have recently opened.

Beautiful House on a beautiful lake
We were 10 friends sharing this property and it was perfect for us. It was close enough to the cities and set of a super clean lake. We were able to bring a boat and dock it at the house which was perfect. Becky's communication was always quick and helpful. There are plenty of water and lawn toys to keep everyone happy. The house is well designed and decorated and instantly feels like a home from home. We would highly recommend this property!
Wonderful all around
My family and I, 6 adults and 4 kids, stayed for 6 days and had an absolutely wonderful time at this beautiful location. So much to do, the lake, the outdoors and the pristine surroundings. The house is in great condition and picture perfect. Well stocked with appliances and amenities both inside and out. Access to multiple watercraft, bicycles and games. We spent many hours fishing, swimming, boating, exploring or just relaxing. The lake is extremely well maintained, clean and fun. Becky, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. All around, a total success...thank you.
We were in the area for a Crossfit Competition and wanted a place to come back to cook dinner and relax. Amazing house with everything one would need for a vacation. The home owner was very easy to work with and was just a phone call away to answer any concern. Hopefully our group can make this a tradition. Thank you again
Absolutely wonderful! Awesome house and lake! Becky is wonderful. We booked at the very last minute and she was so accommodating in getting us in the next morning. She saved our trip into town for a wedding. Thank you Becky!!!
Stunning property on a beautiful, peaceful lake
This stunning property was beautifully decorated and immaculate. The kitchen was well-stocked and provided plenty of space for multiple cooks. There was abundant seating for people to eat or play games--there was a table in the kitchen, a table in the dining room, and picnic tables on the deck. The bedding was extremely comfortable. The owner provided access to kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, a canoe, and a paddle boat. The yard was huge, so we set up badminton and played frisbee. We also had fun fishing from the end of the dock. We especially loved sitting on the dock and listening to the loons. I highly recommend this property and hope to stay here again.
Best that MN has to offer!
Our visit to the Red Door Retreat could not have been more perfect! We visit family in Minnesota every summer from the East Coast and this home is truly the best of Minnesota lake living. If you are looking for an authentic lake home experience that is a cut above the rest, this is the place. The home itself is also beautifully decorated and fit to host a large family-- just spending a few days there felt like a real indulgence. Red Door Retreat was the perfect getaway, complete with gorgeous sunsets, a beautiful yard and multiple decks for enjoying a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine!), and just a little over an hour from the Minneapolis airport. Becky was fantastic to work with and made our stay effortless. We will be returning again this year!
This lake house is a hidden gem. In just over an hour from Minneapolis, you can get away from the city life and be in the country on a lake. Enjoy all that the lake has to offer! Big Fish Lake is 558 acres and is spring fed. It is 70 feet deep at its deepest. There are always lots of fishermen in front of the house catching large mouth bass, northern pike, walleye, crappie and bluegill. Water clarity is about 10 feet deep.
St. John's University is just a few miles away, offering beautiful hiking and snow shoeing. This house is beautiful in all 4 seasons. St. Cloud is about 20 minutes away and offers lots of different restaurants for your enjoyment. A must see, close by, is the Cold Spring bakery. Best donuts on the planet! Please be advised, they are closed on SUNDAY! There are lots of new micro breweries popping up in the area. We like the Third Street Brewery in Cold Spring and Bad Habit Brewery in St Joseph.
Munsinger Gardens in St. Cloud and the Quarry Park and Nature Preserve are two wonderful places to explore if you need a day off from lake activities! There are golf courses nearby, archery, hiking, biking, roller blading, horseback riding etc.
This beautiful home offers something for everyone. Lakefront luxury for your cherished vacation. Start creating your family memories today!
