|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Enjoy a peaceful vacation retreat on the northeast shore of Ottertail County's largest and best fishing lake. This clean, cozy, knotty cedar cottage is the perfect spot for a secluded respite from city life. The cottage sleeps six comfortably and is fronted by 50 feet of sand beach and nestled in a stand of adult trees 400 feet from the main road. The cabin has undergone an almost total upgrade since 2007, with a more modern kitchen, new wood floor, modern bathroom with large shower, gas fireplace, new wood panel ceiling, and a short stairway leading to the dock and sand beach. (High water resulted in a rock rip-rapping around most of the lakefront on Ottertail several years ago.--but dryer season in 2015 has exposed a nice beach in front of the rock wall). Easy access via steps and dock to sand beach.
Enjoy spectacular sunsets from a wraparound deck. The property includes a paved driveway through large trees leading to a detached two-car garage, and a walkway to the cottage. The bedrooms have two queen-size beds, and bunk beds. A trundle bed serves as a sofa lounge for watching TV. The remodeled kitchen is complete with cooking utensils and dishes.
This is a perfect venue for a variety of activities. It features outstanding fishing for walleye, northern, bass and crappie. Our cabin is just a half-mile from the DNR's east shore public boat launch. We have a dock and lift to accommodate ski and fishing boats. The lake also is connected by the Ottertail River to a chain of lakes which makes for terrific canoeing and kayaking through fishing and wildlife viewing areas. It also is within a 12-mile radius of three 18-hole golf courses, including the award-winning Thumper Pond course, 1.5 miles from the cabin, and the popular 18-hole layout--Balmoral Golf Course--only 4 miles away.
We're a retired couple experienced with lake country living and rural environments. Maintaining rustic cabin-like comfort, interior decorating and fishing are our primary hobbies.
Bob or Barbara Taylor purchased this cabin in 2006
Our family has experienced many years of fun, restful vacations on Ottertail Lake at a nearby family lakeside location. Finding and settling into our own piece of Nirvana in 2007 was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for family.
The laid-back, quiet atmosphere and friendly, helpful neighbors make this a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life back home.
This was our family's third time staying at this cottage. Adore everything about this place: the incredible cottage charm, the position on the lake, the local restaurants and bakery, and especially the wonderful owners. Each time we have stayed we have felt like its a home away from home. There is no doubt we will be back again!!!
We stayed here with our 5 and 6 year old grandsons, with their parents joining us for a day. Our daughter also came for a few nights. The weather wasn't so great for some of our stay, so it was nice to have a great place to be in to play games, etc. We were so happy with the cabin the moment we walked in. The cabin was super clean, and the lake wonderful; both the large area of shallow water, and the beach. The rip rap didn't come into play, as it was late summer and water level being low. The sunsets were amazing!We really loved this place and envy the owners!
This cabin exceeded our expectations - very clean, tons of storage, open floor plan, great outdoor space, and a great location! The lake was clean and shallow enough to let the kids have some 'freedom' in the water, the sunsets were amazing, and we had a wonderful time. The owners were very responsive from our first inquiry to our final checkout. Thank you very, very much for your generosity in sharing your piece of 'heaven on earth' with us!!
We were more than impressed with your lakehome during our stay over Labor Day! Not only was the home beautifully decorated and immaculately clean but from the moment we turned the key we knew this was a home where families shared laughter, love and made memories for a lifetime. This experience went beyond our hopes for a peaceful weekend. We felt we belonged there! Thank you!
What a Great Vacation Home to have a PERFECT and trouble free Vacation at the Lake. You worry when booking a vacation home and wonder "what it will be really like"..This is the REAL Deal. No problems and very very clean.
We spent a glorius week at this property in 2007. Very nice and nicely equipped. We are looking forward to our return in 2008. The owners are very accomodating and the neighbors are great also. Don't hesitate to rent this property. You can't believe the sunsets either. We have spent many vacations at Ottertail and we are extrememly comfortable here.
