2 Bedroom/1 Bath Cabin on lake Melissa in Detroit Lakes MN. Washer/Dryer, Dishwasher, Fireplace, Deck, Dock. The cabin comes fully furnished; beds, couches, kitchen cooking/serving utensils.
The property itself is quite unique; it has 300 feet of lake frontage with a stream running through the property. It was originally part of the Riverside Place Resort. When we bought the end parcel, it included two cabins situated on 200 feet of frontage connected by a foot bridge to the beach/swimming area with another 100 feet of frontage. (only the one cabin described here is currently available for rent). The cabin is centrally located on the lot and privacy is not an issue, as the property is nearly 3 acres in size.
The cabin comes with a roll-in dock; all you need is the boat and lift. The dock is set up lakeside right in front of the cabin.
The swimming beach are is quite special in that it is sugar sand, has a volleyball court and plenty of space to entertain! The beach has a hard sand bottom, and is about 3-4 feet in depth (perfect for kids and families). If you are familiar with the lake, there is an undeveloped section of property just neighboring us; there are often boats that anchor just off the shore and families that come to this section of the beach because it is the perfect depth and has a sand bottom, perfect for frisbee, floating coolers, and water sports. If you have ever spent time on the lake you never quite know what the beach is like...you don't have to worry; this is the beach you have looking for!
This is a great opportunity to have the benefits of lake life without the costs of ownership (mortgage, taxes, insurance, and maintenance)!
We look forward to seeing you at the lake!
I grew up in Detroit Lakes and absolutely love the area!

I would say it is one of the nicest locations and pieces of property on the lake. Even being partial, it's hard to deny the beauty of 300 feet of lake frontage with fantastic views and a great beach...not to mention the property has a stream that runs through it, which makes it even more picturesque.
Fantastic beach, large private lot, great location
