About Rick and Dawn Othoudt/Owners

We both love water sports as well as fishing and snowmobiling and were able to share that love with our boys as they grew up at the lake. There was always something to do. In the mornings I loved listening to the loons while getting ready for work.

Rick and Dawn Othoudt/Owners purchased this house in 1989

Why Rick and Dawn Othoudt/Owners chose Minnesota

The house was built in 1989. Just two miles away is the beautiful Sherburne National wildlife refuge. Our family has spent many weekends walking the trails and viewing wild life. With a groomed snowmobile trail less than a 1/2 mile from our property we loved hopping on the sleds and riding the trails in the winter or walking out on the ice to catch dinner! Don't feel like cooking? Ridgewood Bay Resort is just a mile away and has a full menu. During the winter you can walk across the bay in just 5 minutes.

What makes this house unique

This home is located on a quiet dead end street. The private wrap around deck overlooks the back yard and the north bay of the lake.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. We loved it that it had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The gathering room was large and inviting. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen - everything was clean and easy to find. We would definitely stay at this home again! Thanks for a great weekend!

Great place for a lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This spot worked great for our group. Tucked away between 2 lakes, with a deck and beautiful view. Was perfect for a girls weekend but would also easily accommodate a family trip. The place was spacious, clean, and well maintained. We enjoyed a visit to the county fair and live music at a local bar, but mostly time by the lake. Thanks Rick and Dawn!

Great lake home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over the 4th of July. We had a great time playing in the lake and enjoying the outdoor spaces at this home. The elevated deck and swing set were really nice to have! We only wish there had been more space to hang out by the dock.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

This house was more like a HOME away from home! It was spotless and way more spacious than we had expected. All 3 bathrooms were very clean and stocked with more than enough towels, toilet paper and soap. The kitchen was a blast to entertain in. There are enough dishes of every kind for anything you may want to cook or grill. The wrap around deck was beautiful and useful. The owners made sure that all of the fresh snow was removed from all sidewalks, the deck and the HUGE driveway just hours before we arrived. To say the least, my family LOVED this home and we hope to stay there again! Thank you Dawn & Rick!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured and Dawn was a pleasure to work with. She answered all questions promptly and ensured we had a good stay. The house is spotless and has everything you could possibly need. Aside for the main living area, there is an additional space in the lower level that would be great for workshops or craft getaways. The bedrooms are all on different floors which is great for privacy. If we're ever in the area again, we would love to return!
