About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 15 Sleeps

Charming four bedroom house right on the lake. Large yard, dock, fire-pit, and more. Catch the setting sun in the living room, deck, patio, or family room. There is a twenty foot pontoon boat available for rental. This is a New Listing! Be the first!

We have another cabin on the same lake that we've been renting for a while now. Please feel free to read the reviews: http://www.vrbo.com/568235

This house features a full kitchen, washer and drier, and two bathrooms. The lake is great for swimming and fishing. You can swim right out front. There is also a public beach with lifeguard just a few hundred feet from the cabin. Dogs are welcome. Grill your days catch on the deck overlooking the lake with our new gas grill.

Elk lake is the best swimming lake in the county. There is a public sandy beach with lifeguards (Certain hours only) only a couple hundred yards away.

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, the docks or from a boat.

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, two restaurants, a bar/restaurant, grocery store, liquor store, service station, and other shops. There is even Red Rock Golf Course located three miles away.

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.

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

The place was just what we needed. We had 5 adults, 2 kids (7 year olds) and 3 dogs. There was plenty of room for everyone and we didn't feel like we were on top of one another. Plenty to do at the house...Tim had tons of games for the girls to play. not to mention the bedroom with bunk beds was like their own little heaven :). Dogs enjoyed swimming in the lake and running around the yard! My 7 year old daughter caught her first fish...which made her very very happy..

Overall....we all as a family had a wonderful time!...Thank you Tim for the hospitality :)

Lovely Place for a Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We spend the weekend here for my best friend's bachelorette party. There was enough space for all 12 of us! The kitchen had everything we needed, and there was a grill outside to grill our steak kabobs. The view over the lake was amazing... both at night with the moon reflecting off of it and in the morning. We were able to use the paddle boards and kayaks, which the bride-to-be absolutely loved. We visited the whiskey distillery and grabbed some apps at a local bar, and on Saturday visited the winery and had supper in Alexandria. It was a perfect weekend. The owner, Tim, was so easy to work with! He responded very quickly to my emails, and was very, very nice. I'm hoping to go back again with my family to fish as I hear it is very good fishing as well :-)

Really great set up.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 days here with our family and dogs. The house is perfect. Lots of room, well equipped, and cozy. The lake is very clean, we didn't have a lot of luck fishing, but had fun trying. Tim is a great guy, responds quickly to emails, and we would recommend this place highly.

Great cabin on a good fishing lake

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 adults and 4 kids and the cabin fit us perfectly. There was plenty to keep all entertained between the swimming, kayaks, and fishing. The fishing was really good! We caught walleye, northern, bass and sunfish. We will definitely consider returning next year. Tim was very easy to work with and responded quickly. Thanks for a great vacation!

Quiet lake cabin retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin and the yard had plenty of room for activities, both were clean and properly maintained. The lake was very quiet and the fishing was great for some nice pan fish.

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion group of 24: 12 stayed here and 12 stayed at the Green house (give or take a few). This "blue house" has been painted gray, so don't worry; if it's grey, your at the right place! The kitchen and dining area is a little bigger, so we tended to have our suppers here. The Green house had all the toys, so when we wanted to play we headed over there to kayak, paddle boat, paddle board, inner tube, etc. You can walk or paddle back and forth between the two. Fishing was not so great on our week, but we have no local knowledge of what bait and techniques to use. The fishing boat and pontoon were a big plus. All in all a great experience and we would go back!
