For the price of a motel room, enjoy a cabin on a lake. Great casual summer-fall vacation place for a small family with room for guests. MINIMUM 17 DAY STAY. THOUGH DAILY AND WEEKLY RATES MUST BE SHOWN, WE DO NOT RENT FOR THESE SHORT PERIODS. SEE NOTE BELOW. Great room, master bedroom, and kitchen overlook the lake and dock 35 feet away. Great room has firestove, cozy couch corner, and dining/work table. But most eat sitting on barstools at the kitchen counter... or out on the deck (where, if you sit still the chickadees will eat sunflower seeds out of your hand).

The beautiful main lake is a mile across. The landmark "Alvord's...Read more

Additional notes from the owner

Nightly and weekly rates are shown for comparison purposes only. WE DON'T RENT BY THE NIGHT, WEEKEND, OR FOR ONE WEEK. I can provide an essay with the details, but in short, you are renting a resort property where the days are more valuable than the nights. We normally rent only full months, but at times for various reasons we provide a two-week or three-week minimum option. Any 14 or more night period is OK.
Utility Expense Details:
-- Aug, Sep, and Oct rates include electricity, propane, and unlimited nation-wide landline phone service.
-- Winter and spring rental requires a negotiated utility deposit.
-- Early summer rental requires a 250$ utility deposit.
-- Cable TV, cable or DSL internet, drinking water, and trash hauling, are available, but you will need to subscribe to them. Free wifi is available at the nearby libraries and restaurants. Our cottage, lake, parks and towns are a good place to take a vacation from the internet as well as your work..
Cell phone service is variable depending upon your carrier, and where you are standing, and the moment you are calling. Expect Verizon calls to be dropped randomly, but I figure on 5 minutes between drops when standing inside, and 10 minutes when standing outside. I think ATT service is similar.
Payment Details:
-- Winter and Spring rentals can be paid monthly, but the refundable deposit is 2000$.
-- Early Summer rentals can be paid in two equal payments, with second payment due on arrival.
-- Late Summer and fall rentals are paid in full when booking.
The diagonal un-availabilities shown on the calendar for the winter months just denotes winter season lease are by special arrangement to prospective tenants who are experienced in rural winter living and can deal with ice storms, power outages, blocked roads, and prevent pipes from freezing and creosote from building up in the wood stove flue.
