About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This recently updated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Pulaski in Buffalo, Minnesota. With accommodations for six, this house is perfect for anything from a girl's/guy's weekend to a couple's retreat.

The newly remodeled main floor has a fully equip kitchen, including dishes, cookware, and utensils. The beautiful granite countertops give you plenty of room to prepare meals while the dishwasher makes cleanup easy at the end of the day. The counter area and the dining table each have seating for four, perfect for a meal, a round of drinks, or a game of cards. The living room has plenty of seating options to lounge in, with a couch and three chairs, or enjoy a cup of coffee by the patio door to take in the heavenly view of the lake. Better yet, have a glass of wine in the hot tub, located 3 steps outside the patio door! The patio also has a grill and patio table, great for those tropical Minnesota days :)

Upstairs you will find a spacious master bedroom and bath suite complete with king size bed and solid wood furnishings. Two guest rooms leave space for four more friends, with a queen and two twin beds. A 3/4 bath with double sink is shared between the two guest rooms.

The city of Buffalo is a friendly community located about 40 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. Home to numerous lakes, parks, antique stores, and other recreational activities, Buffalo is a wonderful place to enjoy a day trip or weekend getaway. If golfing is a past time, tee off at Wild Marsh (18-hole) or Buffalo Heights (9-hole) golf courses or practice your swing at the driving range. Pick apples at Deer Lake Orchard or taste a local glass of wine at Buffalo Rock Winery. Shop at the local stores, go antiquing in downtown Buffalo, or make the mere 20 minute drive to Albertville Outlet Mall for the latest trends. Eat some of the best pizza around at Norm's Wayside or try some delicious Mexican food at Rancho Grande. For restaurant staples, slide over to Perkins or Applebee's or grab something quick at one of the numerous fast food stops around town. Need more entertainment? Watch a movie at Buffalo Cinema or go bowling at Huikko's bowling alley.

Buffalo and Pulaski are the two main lakes. While the house is already located on the best lake in town ;) you might want to explore other lakes nearby. Buffalo Lake is located in downtown Buffalo and offers pontoon and canoe rentals. If you'd prefer to stay on Pulaski to enjoy your water activities and have a boat you would like to bring with you on your stay, feel free to tie the boat to the dock during the day. Pulaski is perfect for skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, paddleboarding, and numerous other recreational activities. Or for the fisherman of the group, simply bring a rod and reel and fish right off the dock, no boat required. You might be surprised at the fish you bring in! And don't forget, the hot tub on the deck is a great place to relax and unwind after a day of golf, tennis, hiking, biking or water activities.

About Kathryn

My husband and I love the water and have lived on this lake together for many years. I grew up on the lake and watched the community grow and evolve over the years. The location is great because you have the lake with all the activities yet are close enough to downtown Minneapolis to make the commute every day to work ... which I do! We love to waterski, pontoon, go walking and biking. We can enjoy the theatre downtown and get to the various shopping areas in an hours time - depending upon where we want to go. Great fun! The rental property is right next door to us so if you have any questions on things to do in the neighborhood - just ask.

Kathryn purchased this house in 1995

Why Kathryn chose Minnesota

The house was my parents home so after they passed away we updated it with the idea that we would some day do vacation rentals with it. It gives us the flexibility for when family and friends come to stay for a weekend or a week. When not in use - we love sharing the home with others who want to enjoy the benefits of spending time at the lake yet still being able to enjoy some shopping, golfing, dining and any other activity you might think of all within an hour of the house. Just depends on what you are looking for in your vacation time.

What makes this house unique

When you plan a vacation in Minnesota you always have the chance that the weather might not be exactly what you are looking for ... maybe rain, maybe snow. As much as we would like to guarantee great weather, we just can't. We can say that we are close enough to indoor activities if you want to get away from the lake that you can do so with ease and turn around and head home if the weather improves. I love the flexibility this location offers.

Roomy house right on the water!

  • 4 of 5

The property was great and Kathryn was quick to respond with any questions that we had. The house is right on the water and the hot tub on the deck was great. The owners live right next door.

Relaxing and homey environment.

  • 5 of 5

We felt very comfortable in this home. We enjoyed the beautiful view, the amenities, and the overall homey feel of this property. We were close to restaurants and stores, but felt we were away on a relaxing vacation. Everything we were looking for!

Relaxing ladies weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay! The house is nice and cozy with comfortable beds all equipped with "my pillows"! We were able to go out snow shoeing on the lake and then come back and soak in the hot tub on the deck...it was amazing! We did our cooking at the house and that worked out well since we were just relaxing and enjoying our time here! It was a lovely, relaxing weekend with mom and sisters!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a nice time. You are truly Minnesotans to get in that hot tub with the below zero temps we had this past weekend :). I am glad you liked the pillows too, they are my favorites. You are welcome back anytime.

Escape to the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Walk in the door, set down your bag, and breathe a sigh of relief. Everything you need is here. Stunning lake views, clean, comfortable furnishings, dreamy beds (with pillows galore), a hot tub perched above the lake, kitchen with all the stuff a cook needs, a washer and dryer, and you are just minutes away from downtown Buffalo, stores, and restaurants. If your lucky, your marvelous hosts -- Kathryn and Joe -- might stop for a glass of wine and to share local yore. In any event, they are just a phone call away in the unlikely event you can't find something you need. Before you know it, you are relaxing, even if you had no such intention. Sigh. Now only if you had a few extra days to stay . . .

Highly Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a girls weekend away! There were 4 of us and we enjoyed shopping every day at both the Albertville Outlets and downtown Buffalo during their Occasional Shopping weekend (first weekend of every month). We also visited the Buffalo Rock Winey for a ladies event. It was all perfect!

As for the cabin, it was fantastic!! Spacious and clean with everything we needed. The BIG bonus was the hot tub on the deck overlooking the lake. Owners were great to work with as well.

We would highly recommend this beautiful home for anyone needing a place to stay near Buffalo!

Fantastic spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 girlfriends that have been friends for years and we like to get together annually all in one spot. This is the perfect place to stay!! The cabin is on a great spot on the lake! Plenty of space to gather in the living room and kitchen, the patio was used often, we LOVED the hot tub and bonfire areas and used them often. 6 Thumbs Up!!!
