Spacious, clean, private lakeside home close to many amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house is set in a small area of neighborhood homes so you do not have a resort feel at all; yet the neighbors were friendly and helpful. We were even invited to a neighborhood party the first night! With the homeowner on one side, help was close at hand when we had a question about accessing Netflix one night and the issue was fixed immediately and personally. The landscaping is lovely, with lush grass and trees. As we sat on the large lakeside deck enjoying our coffee, drinks or meals, a family consisting of mama duck and 7 ducklings entertained us daily by water coming up to forage in the grass. We had a fire bit next to the deck and there is also one behind the house next to playground equipment. The garage is large and came in handy when we had a threat of hail which the owner warned us about. The house itself is spacious with three bedrooms and two baths and plenty of storage space. I found the bed in the NW corner very comfortable and even asked Nettie where she got her pillows as I liked them so well. The house was extremely clean. We used the washer frequently.and had a bit of rust in the water; but Scott came promptly and added water treatment to the system. The kitchen was well stocked and we had no trouble finding what we needed to cook. Some very good chocolate brownies welcomed us. For TV viewing we did use Netflix; but not the DVD's that were provided. No regular TV here so if you want to watch the news, bring a tablet or have an app on your phone. There is a dock available with a lift, but we did not take advantage of it as our boat is a larger V bottom and my husband was a bit concerned about using it; however, Scott was very accommodating in moving boats around to try to help us out. There was an open spot on his personal dock next door that did not have a boat lift, where he allowed us to bring a boat in for a short break. We were catching walleye on this lake and there is a public boat ramp within a mile where we easily loaded and unloaded. Bring a portable fish cleaning station as there are none available on the lakes. There is a small beach in front but because it was the first week in June, a bit too cold for the sunbathing and water yet, but looked nice, with a ladder to it from the dock and an easy slope from the deck. Very close to the house. The Town of Otter Tail is within a couple of miles and has a grocery store, nice places to eat, bait shop, marina, dollar store and boutiques.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This is a amazing place to take your family. We had one of the best vacations we have ever had as a family. The description is accurate but there is so much more to this home. It will have everything you could possibly need while staying there. The owner is extremely helpful, if you need something just ask she is right next door. If you are looking for true relaxation this is the place. We will be booking this place again.

The home was beautiful and spacious!

The owner stopped in to make sure we had everything we needed, and even left a fresh Pam of brownies for us!!

The weather stopped us from enjoying the outdoors but it was nice to just stay in and relax as well. I would highly recommend this as a vacation get away!

Nice Home and Area

  • 4 of 5

The house was more than adequate for four adults and three kids. We didn't have great weather so we spent a lot of time inside, but the owners brought over a bunch of toys for the kids to play with to help occupy their time. We brought Apple TV and a PlayStation so that helped too. The wifi isn't great but we had unlimited data so we just connected to hotspot. Owners are next door and very helpful and friendly. Overall it is a very nice home and area.

Peaceful lakefront home! Open floor plan with great lake views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home and well groomed property. We were able to relax in the deck and still be able to see the kids playing on our own little beach front. We did bring our own boat that was able to fit on the lift. The bedrooms were a decent size and it was great to have 2 baths and an open living space. The deck has 2 tables with chairs so we did most of our eating outside. The owners are very helpful and pleasant. We did try to use the Tv's but could not connect to anything but there are DVD players and a small collection of movies but beware that if you have children, you'll want to bring movies for them as there are no kid movies. We had tablets that could connect to the Wi-Fi so that saved us on the rainy day. We only found minor issues like a lamp not working, some kitchen utensils missing and the tub gets very slippery when taking a shower. None of that set us back or ruined our day, we just worked around it. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone who just wants to sit back and relax on the lake. We enjoyed not having the lake "resort" cabins where your neighbor's are literally on top of you and everyone is partying until the wee hours of the night. Our goal was to come to the lake and relax and that is exactly what we were able to do. We will definitely rent from again in the future!
