I am Russ Seaberg. I have lived in Detroit Lakes all of my life. I started Seaberg Powersports in 1983. With my powersports interests, this location is perfect for everything we enjoy. Privacy, with water to boat and jet ski on and a great place to snowmobile from in the winter.

RUSSELL AND CATHERINE SEABERG purchased this house in 2001

What makes this house unique

We enjoy this property because it is wooded and private. It is connected to big and little Detroit lakes, giving you access to 5 lakes and several restaurants on the water. Great fishing for all normal MN fish and some really big Muskies. We also regularly enjoy the hiking trails and cross country ski trails, (including snow shoeing) in the Dunton Locks Park that is just across the lake from our house.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The memories we take away are the smiling faces of 20 family members from 7 months to 80 years. Being here during the heat wave of the summer meant we kept our cool by swimming off the pontoon, using the jetski as a ferry when younger kids got too cold and needed to come back to shore to warm up. All the watercraft were used as we explored new skills or brushed up on what they had done years ago.

The home provided various spaces for adults to have quiet conversations and the property outdoors allowed for lots of running and hiding by the kids. We come away peaceful and relaxed, looking forward to coming back again..

Plan to return!! Great time was had by all!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed ourselves. Our family gets together once per year because we all live in different places. The facilities were great and we had a wonderful time reconnecting, relaxing and enjoying life together. We had a great time on the lake and loved how quiet the lake is. We would highly recommend this experience to everyone.

Perfect for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast at this property which housed our extended family attending a wedding in Detroit Lakes. Plenty of room and sleeping space for everyone! Very well equipped kitchen (complete with a huge selection of spices, Tupperware, paper plates and garbage bags) Tons of dishes, pots & pans, ice maker and a large dining table. Deck furniture, camp fire pit, grill and tiki torches are fun for outdoor entertaining. Very relaxing and secluded, yet just a short driving distance to golf courses, dining, paved walking/bike paths and more. Thanks Russ & Cathy for everything!

Father's Day Fun

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our family vacation at this property. Lots of space in and out. Living space just wonderful!! They went out of their way to provide blankets and comfort to our 2 babies. The fire pit with chairs provided were used often and let us enjoy the view- including northern lights! Location provided close bike and running paths. Bedroom area quiet even with a lot of people. Good showers. LOTS of extras in the kitchen!
