About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Lovely unique lake home on the edge of Soli Bay overlooking 11th Crow Wing Lake. Comfy 1,600 square feet of home away from home. Very private secluded location, wooded on both sides with no other properties visible. Located on Co 25 and only 1/2 mile to Hwy 34 and the Heartland State Trail for biking and hiking. Private short hiking trail around the bay. Or for a 10K, bike or hike the loop around the west half of 11th Crow Wing Lake.

Large bonfire area near the lake and another off the patio near the house. A large patio for sunning and picnicking right off the dining area. Large, open area down by lake and large fire pit for playing games, setting up tents, etc... Enjoy the hummingbirds when they come to the feeder.

Akeley is home to the popular Woodtick Musical summer theatre and there is an authentic German restaurant one mile away. Walker, MN (Leech Lake) to the east and Park Rapids to the west offer golf, movies, shopping and other activities. Only 40 minutes away from Itasca State Park.

What makes this house unique

Can't get any more of a private location than this! No neighbors in site. Enjoy the privacy. And, if and when, you want to get out and about...there is so much to do in the surrounding area. Golf, shop/antiques, theatres (live and movie), casino, numerous unique restaurants. Awesome trails for walking, running, biking.

We do allow small pets (owners need to approve); for a small per night pet fee & a security deposit. Please advise if you have a pet in your inquiry. Thank you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These are comments via email we received from guests from Chicago:

Hi Sharon & Phil -



Thank you so much for the wonderful vacation lake house. It was far more than we expected. The backyard was just like being on some estate, and the inside was so homey and cute. I especially loved all the blankets here and there, and the view from the upstairs TV Room / loft.



I have to work on getting some of the kids to make the long trip again - but I am all for it. I will also recommend your place to anyone who asks me. It is a great house, lake, property, and town for a family getaway. If it helps, I can type words like these for others to see either into the website or wherever you like.

Quiet, comfortable, relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home! Wish there was more of a swimming area for kids. Also, lots of poisonous weeds near the path. Overall, a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Tracy. Thank you for your stay, and review, and input on the weeds. We do have poison ivy in the woods, and have been spraying to keep that away from pathways...we will be sure to stay on top of that. Thanks Tracy.

Very clean, very private. Beautiful home and surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home. No mildew like in other places we've rented!! Well taken care of. Very clean. Nice beds and linens and blankets were wonderful! We had morning coffee together and really enjoyed the patio set on the deck. I did a lot of reading sitting on the dock, too! It was nice to have the TV's with DVD players, and great cable selection - but we didn't watch Tv as it was a beautiful week and too many other relaxing and fun activities to enjoy. There was enough 'play' space for my adult sons to throw a football around below the house by the water. Even though the property is right below the road, we seldom noticed any traffic noises.

The only drawback for me was not having swimming access at the house. The raft is across the bay. But the swimming there is nice and the raft is easy to get on and off.

The paddle boat was fun to have and we also rented a couple of kayaks.

I would definitely say this is the nicest place we've rented over the years!

Nice lake, comfy house.

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice house, nothing "fancy", but comfy. The lake is nice and there are plenty of fish for kids to catch off the dock, too mucky for swimming though. Plenty of wildlife. Quite and private. Owners are nice and communicate very effectively.

The beds are listed as Queens, but they are Fulls. Great selection of VHS tapes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay, and review, Jeff. The main floor and lower level bedroom/bed are (I believe) queen size? (I purchased and we put queen bedding on those beds). The futon and couch pullout may not be full queen sizes? Thanks again. Hope to see you again.

Great place to get away!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to get away from it all. It's very secluded from the neighbors. The home and yard are very spacious. It was great to have a gas grill as we ate all our meals at the cabin. The fire pit near the lake is also an added bonus. The lake is beautiful and quiet. Unfortunately, there is no swimming off the dock because of Lilly pads, but there is a paddle boat offered, so we took that out to the swimming pad. Sandy was easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. Would definitely consider returning!

Beautiful, secluded lake home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this lovely secluded home. We traveled with five adults, one toddler, and a dog, and enjoyed the lake, the deck and firepit. The house is set up well for a group, with plenty of sleeping areas and two bathrooms. We enjoyed dinner out in Akeley, Park Rapids and Walker. We'd recommend this to friends!

Perfect 4th of July weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property!! There were 3 adults and one child in our group. My Dad has been sick and said the weekend here helped him "heal". The house is beautiful as is the lake. We didn't have a boat but had a couple kayaks and a paddle board and it was perfect for us. We used the fire pit by the house each night and it was a perfect spot for smores! We will definitely be back!

Location

So much to do in this area; if you desire to escape your private, relaxing get-away. Local town has a hometown live theatre event (WoodTick theatre). Many local eating, entertainment and recreation establishments nearby. Enjoy your stay, surroundings and time away from home!
