Overview

About the property

Unique Property With A Lake On Each Side Of The House.

You can look far and wide and never find one like this again. We have a four bedroom house on two lakes! You can watch the sun rise over one lake, then watch it set over the other one. Too windy today on one lake? No problem, it's perfectly calm on the other. Never miss a moment of enjoyment. There is 335 feet of private lake shore to enjoy with a private beach!

We now have a 25' pontoon boat available for rent. See our new cabin at http://www.vrbo.com/713808. We can rent you both cabins for extra large groups. We also have room for a trailer if you need.

This lake home has the ideal location. The back deck and bedroom windows are about 15' from the water of Lower Elk Lake. Enjoy a cool morning breeze through your bedroom window. Out the front there is another 165' of private shore on Elk Lake to go with the 150' of shore on Lower Elk Lake. We have a private sandy beach, hammock, fire pit, dock, and a boat lift on Elk Lake. There is another dock on Lower Elk. Along with the pontoon boat we also have kayaks, paddle boats, and a stand-up paddle board for you to enjoy. There is also a 14' fishing boat available if you ask in advance and even fishing rods if you need.

The home features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, rumpus room (with foos-ball table, electronic dart board, video games, and board games), eat-in kitchen, deck, two patio doors right on the lake, all on two-thirds of an acre. There are seven beds that will sleep up to ten people plus a futon and roll-out couch in this 1,600 square foot home. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and there is a washer and dryer. We have a flat screen TV, high-speed internet, and a WDTV (to watch cable TV over Slingbox software. If you have a Netflix account you can log in on the TV). You can bring up dogs if you'd like (if housebroken). If you don't like doing dishes there is also a brand-new dishwasher.

Elk lake is the best swimming lake in the county. There is a public sandy beach with lifeguards (Certain hours only) only a very short walk away. There is a brand-new bike trail that runs from the public beach right to town.

Both Elk and Lower Elk are great sand bottom fishing lakes. In either lake you can go after Walleye, Northern Pike, Large mouth Bass, Crappie, and Sunfish. You're able to fish from the shore, one of the three docks or from a boat. There is even a fish cleaning table by the garage.

Only two miles away you can find Hoffman, MN. Hoffman is a small quiet town but you'll be able to get most of the necessities you'll need there. It has a gas station, a restaurant, a bar/restaurant, grocery store, liquor store, and other shops. In the town of Elbow Lake there is Tipsinah Mounds Golf Course. We have a special deal going with them, so contact me if you'd like to golf.

If you need a little more action than sleepy Hoffman is able to provide that's not a problem as you're only about twenty minutes away from Alexandria MN. Alexandria has lots of shopping at dozens of antique stores and other shops. There are plenty of restaurants, retail stores, golf courses, and even a winery.

We'd really love to share our little bit of heaven with you.

Key words: Sandy Shore, fishing, walleye, kayak, cabin, pontoon, golf, relaxation.

House is clean and roomy. Everything your need inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Family of four with two teeneagers stayed and had a great time! Enough room for several families to stay. Lots to do inside and out. Great for those that want to relax in a hammock or on the new deck and also those that want to be active and use all the outside water toys. Owner is quick to respond to inquiries. Great getaway spot!

House w Newer Deck/Two Lakes w Fun Family Time

  • 4 of 5

Although this is an older house, it serves all functions for a family vacation at the lake. There is a public beach within walking distance, two mile bike path, kayaks, paddle board, pontoon to rent, and lots of space. The pelicans on the lake were a wonderful surprise.

Thanks for being so accommodating.

Get time away

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space for the group of 10 we had at the cabin. Temps in the 90's but it felt like high 70's due to the location of the place in between the lakes and wonderful tree cover. Lots of extra things like yard games and a solid internet connection if you want to disconnect, but still be able to connect. Very responsive owner who catered to communication style as I had questions randomly and he was good to get back to me timely. Always looked to accommodate us during our stay. Will stay again when we are back in MN.

Great cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Tim's cabin suited our needs perfectly! Having 2 lakes was really nice - if it was windy on one, we could go and fish from the shore on the other one, sheltered from the wind. Tim was very responsive to any questions we had leading up to and while we were at the cabin.

What more could I ask for?

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great! Spotless when we arrived. The deck on the back was brand new and huge! Some of the rooms have been recently remodeled. The downstairs bathroom that older reviews have mentioned has been remodeled. Having two lakes was great because one was windy on one the other was pretty calm and great for the provided kayaks!

Misinformed and not very well maintained

  • 1 of 5

On reaching the cabin, we could only found one restroom and apparantly second was not yet constructed. This was not communicated before the trip. After complaint, The owner offered use of other restroom in some other distant cabin but expecting a group of 12 people (including children after they have moved in and settled in one cabin) to move between cabins for using restroom is not fair at all (specially in this weather).

Also the garage was communicated to be usable for 2 cars which was not the case as it was already filled with garbage chute and other stuff. The furniture and utensils were also quite old and mostly barely usable.

These issues created a lot of inconvenience for us during the stay and we are sorry to say we are not at all happy with this experience.

I can totally understand the bad weather part as an exception but then charges should be re-adjusted to be in line to the services provided due to this exception and inconvenience caused to the group.

Expecting a refund from the management for this degraded service.

Owner's Response: The one bathroom has now been completely remodeled and is brand new. Remember when you travel to stay in communication with the owner. All of these problems could have been solved quickly.
