Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Minnesota - Norge Vatn Stølhus

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Norge Vatn Stølhus (That's Norwegian for 'Norway Lake cabin'!)

Your rental includes the main cabin, two-car garage and a guest cottage perched on the shores of Norway Lake.

Details:

Lovely, comfortably furnished, two-bedroom, lake home with well-equipped kitchen. Cabin has an electric fireplace and is air conditioned. Cozy, lake-side, one-bedroom guest cottage. Two bathrooms and complete full-sized laundry facilities. Sleeps eight, linens provided. All beds are queen size, except for bunk beds. Satellite TV, CD, VCR and DVD player. Good water pressure, and no rusty well water at this lake home...the water softener is well stocked with salt!

Breathtaking views of Norway Lake from cabin and cottage, with lovely sunrises and sunsets. Private setting on a peaceful 600-acre lake, complete with resident loons and eagles. Fishing boat on a lift, canoe, and private dock located steps away from the door.

Level elevation to the lake. Two decks - one lake side. A variety of comfortable outdoor furniture. Fire pit for bonfires, gas grill, two-car garage . Fish off the dock for pan fish -- kids love doing this! Garage has great sink set up for cleaning up from outdoor activities. Beautiful lake with sandy bottom. Boat launch is close by.

Conveniently located less than three miles from the town of Pine River (restaurants, groceries, bait, shopping) and the paved Paul Bunyan Trail which is 100 miles long. Many golf courses within a ten mile radius. Canoe from cabin to entire Whitefish Chain of Lakes via the Pine River, which flows through Norway Lake. Less than 30 miles from Brainerd/Baxter -- close enough for convenience, far enough to escape the hustle and bustle of other vacationers.

A heavily wooded minimum maintenance road is 1/3 mile away and is excellent for taking a nature walk or going for a bike ride (two adult-size bikes are provided). The property is located on a paved road, so roller-blading can be done out the front door.

Weekly, monthly, or seasonal occupancy. Discounted rates for multi-week stays. Weekly rate plus deposit. No smoking permitted and no pets. Minimum rental age is 25.

About Michele Johnson

We have had our personal lake home on Norway Lake since 1993. It is our favorite place to be, and we visit it year round.

Michele Johnson purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Michele Johnson chose Minnesota

We love Norway Lake, and when we had the chance to acquire Norge Vatn Stolhus from our relatives, we jumped at the chance. We enjoy sharing our lovely, peaceful lake with others.

What makes this cabin unique

This area is lovely. It is heavily wooded and very quiet. The lake is a nice size, and with the river running through it, affords many opportunities for exploration. You can kick back and relax, enjoying gorgeous scenery, or you can be really active and enjoy an array of outdoor activities. We look forward to sharing our retreat with you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you to you and your husband for the great stay and accommodations! Also Donni the property manager for being very helpful and even putting me on some walleyes up on Pine Mountain Lake!:) Appreciate having all the amenities (grill, washer/dryer, satellite, etc). It's a great cabin, setting, and area around Norway Lake/Pine River. Weather was sporadic, but still made the best of it rain or shine.



Thanks again.

Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time this weekend, perfect place for the guys to get together! Michelle and Ron were more than accommodating in making reservations, the caretaker Donny was also a delightful man who was there if we needed anything. There is a massive garage next to the house with a couple bunk beds and another full bath. The place was clean and at the end of the road next to the boat launch which added a little more privacy.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking to be on a beautiful lake and have all the comforts of home!

A Piece of Heaven...

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun relaxing at your beautiful home....THANK YOU!!! The boys, who dubbed the guest house as the "Man Cave," enjoyed their privacy (almost as much as the Play Station!). We simply loved everything: from the convenience of two bathrooms to the comfortable beds and couches to the kitchen that had everything we needed to the loons who were simply magical! Norway Lake was so clean that we could see the fish! Having the boat ramp right next door was such a bonus...we were in or on the water whenever we weren't sleeping or roasting s'mores in the fire pit. The only part that was hard was leaving...
