Enjoy lodging in a lakeside Minnesota cottage on the water. Sunrise + sunset views, this is a nature oasis. Listen for loons calling, feel the breeze off the lake. You have your own private & clean outhouse. Find yourself amongst wildlife in a quaint cabin. Pretend it's a remote getaway, close to the cities. Activities include kayaking, canoeing, catching a local concert or sporting event.... complimentary water toys available like kayak and canoe. Shower outside, under the stars!

The space
The cozy two-level cottage is all yours. The bedroom is upstairs with a comfortable queen bed & view in all directions. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The lower level has a full fridge & freezer, a 50" TV, fireplace, and additional spots to relax. There is a pull-out sofa couch on the main level that would be a cozier sleep for two. Since we are so close to the lake, plumbing is limited. The restroom facilities are outside in a standalone outhouse -- completely clean and kept nice for you. There is running water and portable A/C. Welcome up-north! Incredible views, fantastic nature, lake living at it's best. The overhang area has seating to dine outside and a floating bed. The sunset deck has. private propane / charcoal grill for your use. There is a double hot plate, microwave, and toaster oven as well.

*Right across the street (6 minute walk) is a multi-million dollar complex with more deluxe accommodations, should you need them [gym, shower, yoga class, hot tub, pool, spa]

Guest access
This is a stand alone cottage unit. The large yard is a shared space, as is the outdoor areas (the spaces unique to the Lake Cottage are yours, the overhang with floating bed + sunset deck with grill). Our parking area will have other cars there, but we will make sure you know where to park! It is free, off-street parking in a safe, comfortable spot.

Other things to note
The fireplace has a remote with a thermostat built in, so, it is your solution for inside comfort in the cooler months + winter. We also have fans for additional options. There is a portable A/C unit for this space.

We've operated a portrait studio for 30 years in this location and landscaped to facilitate beautiful images. This Lake Lodge is the lower-level of our house. We live above it. While we are quieter when there are guests around, we are not sitting still silently 24/7. Please know you may hear some footsteps during the day, as to be expected in a shared building (like a hotel or an apartment).

Half hour drive from the airport to our location... once you're here, it is a private lake oasis.

We have three other listings here: Lake Studio, Lake Lodge, and Lake Loft Suite, you may see other guests during your stay but there are 16 socially distanced outdoor spaces to enjoy relaxation and privacy during your stay.

I have spent 40 years together with an amazing wife (took her to 3 proms!), she's also been my business partner running (Website hidden by Airbnb) - a high end portrait studio on a lake in Minnesota. Our travels to date include Mexico, Europe, Thailand/South Korea & Africa. We're both certified Scuba and love experiencing different cultures and lifestyles. We have 3 grown daughters whom we love to spend time with. Previous to starting our own business I worked at the YMCA for 9 years. My travel bug bit hard right out of high school when a trip to Europe backpacking resulted in 4 months and 18 countries creating memories to last a lifetime. Whether hosting or as a guest, I try to bring a positive perspective to the table. Whenever possible, I say "yes!" to life's opportunities and adventures - I realized at a younger age, life feels better on a lake -- so here we are!
