I and my wife recently sold the Timberwolf Inn in Marcell,MN

It is a year round restaurant and lounge approx. 20 miles north on Highway 38.

We have been in this area since 1994. I met my wife at a resort on North Star Lake in 1975.

TIM AND BRENDA SCHMITZ purchased this cottage in 2006

Why TIM AND BRENDA SCHMITZ chose Minnesota

This cabin has gorgeous views, that sits right on the lake. Perfect sand beach for swimming. Along with excellent fishing. One of the most premier lakes in Northern Minnesota!!

The sunsets alone are gorgeous.

What makes this cottage unique

Fishing on Moose Lake is fantastic. Walleyes, Muskie, and pan fish are caught out in front of the cabin

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin was delightful with the water just a few feet from a beautiful porch. The height of relaxation

What an amazing getaway. Beautiful cabin right on the water. Very well kept. Comfy beds. We're a family of four with teenagers, and the cabin gave us plenty of space with room to spare. The caretakers are welcoming, friendly, and accessible. A few days were cold and windy off the lake, but the gas fireplace kept us toasty inside, and we were still able to enjoy the lake view from the living area or screen porch while we relaxed, played board games, or cooked. The sunsets are breathtaking, and the water is clear with a sandy bottom. We grilled and ate meals on the back deck, and paddled around the lake to explore or fish. Loved the private dock! At night we sat around the fire pit area, roasted marshmallows, and listened to the loons. It was a perfect Minnesota getaway.

Great place for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and we all slept comfortably. The beds on the porch area was great sleeping as you got a great breeze through there. The deck was close to the waters edge, had two tables so we could all eat outdoors. Plenty of yard space to play some yard games and a great fire pit! It really worked great for us!

2 great weeks on Moose Lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I ust got back from 2 weeks at the Moose Lake cabin and we both had a great time. The water is 10 feet from the deck and the 3 season porch is wonderful to sleep on with the cool night breezes. You can watch loons, ducks & fishermen as you have your morning coffee. Fished, played golf, swam, visited shops, sampled area restaraunts and just relaxed. Be sure and try Tim's restaraunt in Marcell, the Timberwolf Inn, the food was great and the drive is scenic.

Hayward, WI

A great lakeside vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect lakeside retreat. Had a great time fishing on Moose Lake. Caught a variety of fish from walleyes to Northern Pike, Bass and Perch. If you want a quiet cabin on the water with access to great fishing this is the cabin for you.
