About Mike Olson

Hello! My name is Mike Olson. Currently I live in Hawley, MN with my amazing wife, Shannon; son Eddie born in 2009; and daughter Ingrid born in 2013. Long before starting a family my first goal was to become a teacher. I attended the University of North Dakota while getting my teaching degree and playing football there for 4 years. After graduating I taught school near Seattle, Washington and then in Anchorage, Alaska. After my teaching days I worked in Bozeman, Montana as a wild land firefighter and in Scottsdale, Arizona as supervisor at the Phoenician Resort. Following those stops I landed back in the Hawley area and worked as a house framer and dry wall tape/texture/painter. These last occupations led me to have a great interest in housing and all the details that go into homes. I have now worked in real estate for 10 years and am still enjoying it. Believe it or not but my wife will soon be going back to school to become a teacher.

Mike Olson purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Mike Olson chose Lake Park

This property is a True Minnesota Lake Cabin. Great rustic feel with some modern benefits. The acreage of fishable water is amazing.

What makes this cabin unique

The end of the road resort if not far from our cabin. They sell bait, treats and are a great resource to have near by.

Great family cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. It had plenty of room for our 6 adults. The boat house has nice bonus space both inside and on top. Having a pontoon to use really was the icing on the cake. The fishing on this lake is crazy good. We even got lucky enough to be there for the Fourth of July fireworks on the lake. The cabin is very clean and comfortable. We would not hesitate to come back here!

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Mike's cabin. The cabin is exactly as described and shown in the listing. Mike was very helpful and provides great instructions and was available for questions during our stay. The pontoon boat was a blast, we had some nieces come over with their children and took them out fishing for crappies, which were plentiful. Would highly recommend this cabin. We hope to be able to stay here again.

Nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a few of my best friends. It was a nice cabin with an amazing view of the lake. Also only a 25 minute drive into town (Detroit Lakes) super convenient for any last minute items.

tranquility and beauty

  • 5 of 5

working with Mike was a breeze, everything was as advertised. The pontoon was put to full use for cruise around the lake and daily fishing, wouldn't had nearly as good of time if it wasn't available. Nice cabin, perfect lake, enjoyed every minute!

Our stay at upper cormorant lake was great. The cabin was charming, cozy and stocked with essentials. The owner was very nice and available should any problems arise(which they didn't). It was amazing to have access to the lake right out the back door.The lake was beautiful and we enjoyed using the fire pit in the evenings. We would recommend this place to families in need of relaxation and fun.
