Our lake home features all the comforts of home with a beautiful view of the lake. Enjoy outdoor activities and take time to unwind. This spacious home is nestled on the east side of Forest Lake, near the rolling hills of Scandia and only 30 minutes from the Twin Cities.
The home has been updated and has two levels with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area on each level. Enjoy the 1 acre lot and 120ft of beach.
The shoreline is natural sand with a shallow and gradual depth that is perfect for swimming. There is also a large sandbox adjacent to the shore. Rental includes use of the dock, playset, bonfire pit, and gas grill. We also provide 2 kayaks and bicycles.
There is a public boat launch less than 1 block away.
This home is the perfect spot to enjoy a vacation with friends and family. The accommodations are spacious enough for scrapbooking parties and a ladies getaway. The guys will enjoy the fishing and water sports, and ice fishing in winter. The home has vaulted ceilings and a cabin feel upstairs. The stained glass light fixtures throughout also give the home an updated cabin feeling. The large lower level kitchen is updated and great for family gatherings.
Forest Lake is known for great largemouth bass and walleye fishing year round, plenty of crappie, and excellent water activities. The three connected lakes offer 2270 acres of water fun and a maximum water depth of 37 ft.
You may also enjoy nearby outdoor activities at William O'Brien Park, and the Trollhaugen ski resort. Enjoy exploring the historic town of Scandia, or seasonal berry picking at Natura Farms.
John grew up in Arden Hills, MN and Nicole grew up near Chicago, IL. After getting our engineering degrees at Purdue and University of Illinois, we met in California working at an aerospace company. We moved back to Minnesota to raise our family in 2005. We have always dreamed of owning a lake home to enjoy holidays and getaway family time. Living and working in the Twin Cities, we wanted a property that was close enough for us to get away to it often.
Nicole Grottodden purchased this house in 2011
We chose this home because of the beauty of this area of the lake, the quality and large size of the home, and the large lot with ample shoreline. Forest Lake is the perfect location for us because it is a shorter drive from home and work than many other lakes. We've really enjoyed our lake vacations!
We love the style of the home, from the cabin feel upstairs with the vaulted and beamed ceilings, to the stained glass lighting fixtures. The back deck is a perfect spot to watch the sunset.
