Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cabin in Elysian - Lake Francis, ELYSIAN MN

Three Master Suites and 7 beds Total on Gradual Sandy Lake Shore 60+ friendly

Pontoon Rental UNLIMITED USE and 5 gallons of gas for $100/night entire stay!! We just took over the Lake Francis property in Elysian, MN. The property was purchased in April 2014 and construction was finalized May 2015. We also own and operate VRBO property 373194 and 473699 and can't wait for our first year on Lake Francis. Lake Francis is set up exclusively for my family, friends, and guests! It is designed for a family retreat. The property has 5 bedrooms including: Main Level Master Suite w/ King Bed. 2 Main Level Queen Bedrooms, and 2 Lower Level Private Suites - each with 2 Queen Beds! Lake Francis accommodates up to 14 guests. The open floor plan allows for amazing views of Wagner's Bay and the new deck provides endless evening sunsets. The property is fully furnished and includes Satellite TV and Wi-Fi. The property has 5 bathrooms, fully equipped brand new Kitchen, Dining room table, additional 6' table, Living Rm, and lower level walk out Den. If you have stayed at our Sycamore Trail property on Prior Lake, or Roamers Cove on Lake Jefferson, we are confident you will LOVE Lake Francis in Elysian. Only an hour drive from the Twin Cities. This property will give you that true getaway experience from the hustle and bustle of your hectic lives. There are plenty of fun things to see and do in neighboring Elysian! There is a peacefulness here that is priceless and being able to get a small town feel so close to home is exactly what sold us on this property. It can't be beat!

About Chris Short

I am very excited to offer the Lake Francis property to my guest. It truly is the ultimate playground for the kids. I also own and operate VRBO 373194 Sycamore Tr, Prior Lake and VRBO 473699 Roamers Cove, Lake Jefferson. Please read my reviews.

Chris Short purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Chris Short chose Minnesota

My daughters loves to watch all the wildlife Lake Francis and Elysian has to offer. The fishing is FUN and the house gives you the true 'Up North' Feel. It is the perfect place to find peace and refuge from our hectic lives: 25 Miles to Interstate 35 W, Direct Lake Shore on Spring Fed Lake Francis, amazing future views from deck and throughout the home, Singing Hills Bike Trail, Mankato 20 min, MSU 20 min, Gustavous 15min, Bethany 20min, Great Fishing, Great Hunting, Snowmobile Trails, Scrapbooking/Girl's Weekend, Fire Pit, Local restaurants and bars, and the county museum!

What makes this cabin unique

The location is amazing!! One hour from the Twin Cities, 20 minutes to Mankato and absolutely beautiful with a 30 mile paved bike trail and to many lakes to list. We truly feel our customers will have a wonderful family experience.

Made for a great central location for visiting Minnesota State Parks.

  • 5 of 5

We had plenty of room for two family's (11 people) to spend the MEA weekend at this wonderful location. Made a couple of day trips to some of the State parks and also kicked back and relaxed. Thank you Chris.

Elysian

  • 3 of 5

Comfortable, clean, good condition, spacious, lovely setting, nice views of lake.

Owner never responded to my phone calls and texts while we were there . Poor communications. We were on our own when we arrived with no one to ask questions of, like how the TV remotes worked, name of wireless router, was boat at dock for our use, ............

Owner's Response: That's not fair. Your phone didn't work and I spoke with your family member within a few hours. I hope you and your family enjoyed my properties. Really? I"ll let my friends know. Hotel for you?

Pleased to have stayed and recommend it

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for quiet and serene, this is the place. Four of we siblings and our spouses had a great weekend in spite of the rain on the day we arrived. The owner responded immediately to our only issue. It is a two thumbs up get a way. We would gladly recommend it to families or for reunion type gatherings.

Great Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great Lake House for a family reunion with eleven family members. Plenty of space to accommodate everyone. The interior is like new and there is a beautiful view of the lake. We enjoyed the deck, the patio below and the yard was perfect for yard games. Chris was very friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again.

Great home for a large family to celebrate summer.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our large family. We loved the layout of the house . . . which provided "private" spaces and "big family activity" spaces. The kitchen was nicely supplied. Beds were comfortable. House was very clean. The yard was great for outdoor activities. We were worried about mosquitoes as they have been so bad this summer, but the groundskeeper did a great job of spraying for mosquitoes and trying to keep the algae away from the sandy shore area. Lake Francis is a lovely lake to enjoy with "pontoon" tours. We enjoyed our stay very much.

This is a beautiful home on an idyllic property.

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely lovely. And Chris was right, our grandkids loved it! The beach is nice, although much less sand than in the photos - looks like they have sodded over some of that. But still plenty of sand for all the kids - old and young - to play and relax. It's a little uncomfortable to swim with weeds starting about 6 feet out, but you can still be in the water or on a floatie if you'd like to go out deeper. Caught so many fish on beautiful Lake Francis! And boat rides to look at all the great lakefront homes was fun too!

Inside the home we found almost everything we needed. We brought lots of Keurig cups but could not find the Keurig coffeemaker. The other coffeemaker worked just fine. Next year we will bring a pizza cutter as that was about the only kitchen gadget we couldn't find.

In addition to the high chair there is a pack and play available for little ones.

We were a group of 10 adults and two preschoolers. We had plenty of room on two levels for watching TV, playing cards, watching movies, eating, etc.

We will definitely be back to this property next year.
