About the property

Modern 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath Home, Relax In The Valley With Waterfront!

Fully furnished Retreat house set up to accommodate 9 Scrapbooking/Quilters as well as families or small groups looking for a great getaway home! The house is fully furnished with a main floor master bedroom and bath inclusive of a deep soaking tub and separate shower along with 2 lower level bedrooms and separate full bath. Each room is set up with a large bed and set of bunks to accommodate any group. The home has a total of 9 brand new beds (2 queens, 3 fulls and 4 twin) allowing ample space for multiple families and large groups!

For the late fall, winter and early spring season, the home is set up for crafters. The lower level living area is set up with 9 large craft tables for ample work space to accommodate the scrapbookers, quilters, stampers and any other similar hobbies. **PLEASE NOTE, there is a maximum of 9 guests for retreat groups as we are unable to facilitate groups beyond that size. ALSO TO NOTE for groups coming for other reasons during this time frame, the tables will remain set up in the lower living area and cannot be taken down or moved.

The house is close to Rochester for travelers visiting the Mayo Clinic (15.8 miles to downtown). Contact us for different package details if you are coming to the area as a patient as we offer additional services should you plan a stay and prefer a fully furnished home and kitchen instead of a hotel. (Additional options include but are not limited to airport pick-up/drop off, use of private vehicle or arranging of transportation available, arrival with stocked kitchen upon request, etc.)

Property is also located on the water front with access to Lake Zumbro via a short boat ride. Please note that Lake Zumbro is a reservoir and occasionally after heavy rains the lake will have a no wake zone until water recedes. Contact owner to check availability of a Pontoon and/or fishing boat. Lake Zumbro is known for its fantastic fishing of Bass and panfish. Kayaking and Canoeing along the quiet water front is also available at no additional cost.

About Jeremiah & Jessica Flotterud

We are a local family of 4 who has always enjoyed getting away to Lake Zumbro. We purchased this beautiful property as a way for us to continue to enjoy the area with a place of our own. With our busy schedules, we have decided to open our home up to other families who enjoy the similar getaways as we do. We are located on a huge lot allowing endless opportunities for tenting and outdoor recreational activities! We encourage you to visit, we know you'll love the escape just as much as we do!!!

Why Jeremiah & Jessica Flotterud chose Minnesota

As mentioned, we are less than 15 miles from Rochester, close enough to zip to town for activities, shopping or appointments at the Mayo Clinic but far enough away to feel like you have escaped the busy world and settled into pure R & R!! This property has tons of outdoor space inclusive of nearly 3 acres of yard, a huge deck to enjoy the views, a 3 season porch and a walk out basement with large patio. The home is fully furnished with everything you need to get away!!

What makes this house unique

With the beautiful views and the peaceful setting, this is a great location for any family or group to get away! We are located up stream from Lake Zumbro giving us a quiet waterfront to enjoy but still a very short boat ride to the lake to enjoy fishing and water sports with your family and friends. A pontoon is available to rent during certain times of the year to allow maximum enjoyment at our home! There will be kayaks, and possibly a fishing boat available as well.

PERFECT Scrapbook retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend here! The beds are comfortable and the table space is well set up. I also loved that there was a second fridge in the basement. The views were so perfect. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful Home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. The owners were most accommodating. They touched base to make sure things were as expected. After longs days at Mayo Clinic, it was nice to come "home" to a relaxing comfortable environment! We were able to rent their pontoon to tour the lake on the weekend. We also enjoyed the sweet little neighborhood kitty that visited us each morning as we left for the clinic. Clean, comfortable beds, beautifully decorated with the owners artist touch. We will most definitely try to come back to stay at this vacation home.

comfy home...nice, nice, nice!

We had a great time. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable. Lots of room both inside and out. Very large yard for games. River is not impressive, but we had a great time out on the lake. Great people to rent from.

Great Extended Family Site

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described in the VRBO listing. We had plenty of space to gather the family, prepare meals, and play! The back deck was perfect for afternoon book reading, napping in a chair, or watching activity on the river (which was not busy at all - yeah!). The large back yard was where we played Frisbee and did glow-stick dances.

The kitchen had everything we needed for meal prep, with a very large refrigerator, ample tableware and even a well stocked spice/seasoning cabinet. The house was clean and ready to go when we arrived. (There was one minor plumbing issue, but we were alerted prior to our arrival, and it was corrected.) The bedrooms were large, beds very comfortable and bathrooms clean and very up-to-date. The youngest ones loved the bunk beds!

We had three generations, from pre-school to grandparents, who enjoyed the canoe and kayaks every day during our stay. There were some yard play toys such as bug bottles for catching (and releasing) fireflies, Bocci Ball, sand buckets, etc. The road through the development had a low enough traffic count (even over the 4th of July holiday) that we felt comfortable using it for morning and evening runs/walks with the youngest ones along on their bikes. Bonus - the house is a short drive to the Douglas State Trail and Whitewater State Park for additional adventures.

I would definitely recommend the Flotterud's VRBO.

True to pictures

  • 5 of 5

Very nice decor, furniture, eat at breakfast bar, large dining table, expansive deck with a screened in area, huge basement with bedrooms, refrigerator and crafting tables, nicely done! Would be excellent for scrapbooking, crafting, quilting and group retreats! My husband and our son, parents and his brother, wife and children, there for a wedding nearby and enjoyed our stay. Thanks to Jeremiah and Jessica who were available and easy to communicate with!
