About Bruce Jonason

We have been enjoying Lake Ethel's beauty together since 1980 when Sandy's parents first purchased the property next door. We were fortunate enough to purchase that property from them in 1999 which enabled us to continue enjoying this beautiful lake. We live in the Twin Cities area and are raising six children, all of whom enjoy all Lake Ethel has to offer.

Bruce Jonason purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Bruce Jonason chose Minnesota

We purchased a lake cabin on this lake from Sandy's parents who first purchased the property back in 1980. We have enjoyed spending time at this lake since then. As our six children continue to grow and eventually begin their own families, we anticipate the need for more space at the lake, so when this cabin became available, we purchased it to accommodate our family's future growth. In the meantime, we are able to share these great experiences with others.

What makes this cabin unique

This cozy cabin sits just a few feet from the lakeshore, and you cannot help but feel relaxed as you enjoy fishing or boating by day and the cool breezes and loon calls at the campfire by night. This lot offers a shallow, weed-free swimming area, great for the kids! Feel free to bring your own boat or use ours and keep it on our small boat lift. We can provide you multiple ways to enjoy the lake: enjoy the view while connected to wi-fi, with a paddleboat, canoe, kayaks, or a sailboat if you would like--just ask us! For 2017, we are a licensed rental property in Otter Tail County!

nice property with nice owner.

  • 4 of 5

When we were booking I some how added a pet. Mr Johnson was waiting with a refund for the pet charge. Great cabin for couple or small family. No washing machine or dryer. We would stay in this cabin again if we Visit the western part of Minnesota . Still waiting for the cleaning refund but to my knowledge this is VRBO job not mr Johnson.

A relaxing week end

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our cabin very much. The owner was very helpful and responsive to setting up the visit and responding to any questions. I loved sitting on the deck drinking coffee and looking at the stars at night. There were a number of options for water activities that were convenient and looked fun, but just sitting on the deck relaxing worked for me this weekend. Would stay again.

Amazing property, awesome month

  • 5 of 5

We rented this awesome Lake Ethel cabin for June 2016. It was everything we needed. All we brought was clothes, food and drink! Fishing off dock every day or relaxing in sun- the lake was perfect. Small fishing boat provided worked great to tool around the small lake. Lake itself wasn't overly busy and neighbors were very friendly. We had access to kayaks and paddle boat as well! Would rent again in a heart beat!

Cabin was clean and well appointed. Grass mowed and dock in great shape. Owner was usually present at his cabin next door and very helpful! Tons of small lake towns nearby with great food and shopping!

Terrific vacation on a beautiful lake

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 young adults and 2 parents stayed 3 nights at your cabin. We enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful sunny deck, playing bocci ball, water sports and evening fires. I highly recommend this place for a nice family get away.

I recommend bringing bottled water, because the tap water tastes like iron.

The cabin comes with kayaks, which our daughters used everyday, a paddle boat for two, and small fishing boat and motor.

Bruce, the cabin owner, was great to work with.

Really enjoyed our stay. We booked last minute and it was the first rental of the season. Bruce was extremely helpful getting us set up and squared away.

Enjoy yourself on a very clear 200 acre lake. On a very busy day, you might see 4-5 boats using the lake, but generally, you will have the lake to yourself. When you need something else to do, enjoy one of two 18 hole golf courses or a 9 hole golf course, each less than 8 miles away. Glendalough State Park with its abundance of wildlife and antique stores are also nearby.
