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.

Why Mike Olson chose Minnesota

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.

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.

Great Lakefront, quiet, picturesque location.

  • 5 of 5

This retro cabin was clean and comfortable. The kids enjoyed sleeping in the loft areas, and the kitchen was well-stocked. The property and lakefront are beautiful and relaxing. We didn't get much time on the lake because of rainy weather, but the dock is new, the owner has the pontoon ready to go and the water is great! The owner met us at the cabin and filled us in on all information needed. He also had a 3 ring binder full of useful tips, directions, and area restaurants. You are close to Detroit Lakes and many summer attractions.
