This is a unique property on pristine Bad Medicine Lake! Once the owner's cabin of 'Red Top Resort,' a three-cabin property active since the 1930's, it has been converted into a northwoods-style year-round lakehouse while retaining its rustic charm.
The house features two bedrooms and two bathrooms, two fireplaces, a full kitchen, a living room, and an all-season porch. The all-season porch has a pull out couch for additional overnight guests (this is practically on the water and the best opportunity to hear the loons while you sleep!). The unfinished basement has a washer and dryer for your use, and a ping-pong table for those not-so-nice days or evening entertainment. There is also a pool table in the garage, and a basketball hoop in the driveway for pick-up games!
The kitchen includes an oven, stove, microwave, and refrigerator/freezer. Other small appliances and cookware, serveware and eating utensils are also included. Guests must bring their own food and life jackets.
Bad Medicine Lake is consistently one of the clearest, cleanest lakes in Minnesota. Minnesota Monthly rated it as the best lake for swimming in 2008! It's not uncommon to catch snorkelers and even scuba divers around the lake! Watersports such as tubing, waterskiing, and even sailing are very popular.
Bad Medicine Lake is a great spot for Rainbow Trout and Walleye fishing! It's stocked with Rainbow Trout every year! A public boat launch is only 10 minutes away. Other excellent fishing lakes are easily accessible and close by.
Excellent snowmobile trails are located just off the lake! The trails are groomed, well-maintained, and connect directly to many restaurants, gas stations, and Lake Itasca State Park.
Lake Itasca State Park is an approximate 20 minute drive away. Walk across the headwaters of the Mississippi or enjoy excellent biking or hiking trails. Snowmobiling here in the winter is also a lot of fun!
Nearby towns of Park Rapids, MN and Detroit Lakes, MN offer a lot of entertainment for both kids and adults. Fun shopping and good restaurants are easy to find. Park Rapids offers 'Evergreen Fun Park' for the kids, complete with bumper boats, laser tag, mini-golf, and more. Detroit Lakes offers family-friendly activities nearly every weekend.
The home was very clean and comfortable. We felt at home there right away. It was a great fall get away that we will always remember. it's chilly in the North woods this time of year so the fireplace was wonderful. Without it, the heating system kept us warm and cozy.
The owners were very responsive, but we only had one question, and needed them for nothing else. We would come back to this little slice of heaven anytime.
Beautiful home on a pristine lake. We were on the water daily enjoying swimming, boating and fishing. Loved it.
Everything was very nice. They were building a house next to cabin, so noise was a little disappointing on a few of the days, but we still enjoyed long days on the sandy beach. Great for kids swimming shallow, sandy and crystal clear water. We will definitely stay here again!
The cabin is very well cared for with functional and pleasant kitchen, bathroom and grills on the deck. Views of the lake from the deck and 3-season porch were lovely! Quiet area and we appreciated the use of the paddle boat and swingset along the water. The neighbors were very friendly and our dog was able to stretch his legs and enjoy some water time too! Property owners are quick to respond and thorough in providing details, directions and answers on our follow-up questions. We were looking for a secluded retreat for the weekend and this was perfect! Would love to come back again :)
The Cabin was clean and had all of the amenities you could ask for! A great deck to grill on over looking the lake. Beautiful 4 season porch with windows on 3 sides to capture views of the lake. Fire pit with plenty of firewood. Awesome beach with clear water and sand. Kayaks and Paddle Boat!
We enjoyed a long holiday weekend. The owners were great with accommodating a slightly early arrival. The neighbors were also very nice and came over and said hello! Our 2 pugs enjoyed the stay as well. Love that they allowed pets! Also, close to Itasca State Park where we did a lot of hiking and crossed the head waters of the Mississippi River. Explored the town of Park Rapids, lots of cute little shops and restaurants. Overall, strongly recommend this cabin. Would love to come visit again!
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was fully loaded with breakfast items and especially the workout tools. We are a team of fitness freaks and we are quite surprised and happy to see the gym equipment in the basement. Cabin was kept very clean as in the photographs, lots of dey wood was arranged for us.
Most importantly, Ginger (pur lab puppy) learned how to swim in the clear water lake and we were very excited to see her swim.
Nice neighbours and excellent getaway.
Would definitely come back for this cabin, planning the winter stay.
