PRIOR LAKE ATTRACTIONS within 6- 20 miles: (TOO Many to list, but here are a few…)

Mall of America

Minnesota and Como Zoos


Theater & Arts

Convention centers

All downtown attractions in both Mpls and St. Paul are an easy drive - 20-40 minutes depending on what you are going to and time of day. Our location is IDEAL, because of the lack of congestion it often takes less time to get somewhere than staying 'downtown' or at 'airport' because of lights.

About The Vogt Family

Our family travels all over the world and we use our experiences to create a very special location for visitors to the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. Our goal is that your stay at our Timber & Trails Hideaway will exceed your expectations! We are gracious and have a knack for knowing which guests want lots of attention and those who seek privacy and seclusion.

The Vogt Family purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Vogt Family chose Minnesota

You will find a fabulous location where traffic and freeways allow for quick arrivals and your 'hideaway' has the perfect combination of all the amenities including some luxuries many people never enjoy in their daily routine. You get to experience the MN lifestyle in a luxury golf community first hand!

What makes this apartment unique

DAKOTAH SPORT & FITNESS/GOLF 2 COURSES ALL WITHIN 2 MILES! We are in Scott County - that means Canterbury Downs Racetrack, Mystic Lake Casino with live entertainment and a spectacular buffet, plus Valley Fair Amusement Park are all 10 minutes or less. After you go out in the metro area you can come home and relax with your very own theater room equipped with internet TV stations galore. Your stay includes your very own high end kitchen & laundry room. Heated tile floors and gas fireplace for winter guests. BBQ on a huge deck or have a bonfire in our own private woods. You will have plenty of space for yourself and your fellow guests. Cook, do laundry, relax and be located so that you can arrive just about anywhere in the cities in around 1/2 an 30 minutes or less.

Beautiful home, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment in a beautiful setting. The family was very friendly and responsive to any requests we had. The theater room turned out to be a great place for our 9 month old baby to sleep since it was nice and dark. My favorite feature was the heated floors! :)

Spacious clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Accurate description, clean, nice amenities. The rental went smoothly. The living room tv next to the fireplace was not an hdtv, and did not have cable, just antenna channels. Not that big a deal. We enjoyed the gas fireplace, the heated floor tiles and the big kitchen with dishwasher! The bed was comfortable, too. Good location, near many shopping centers and restaurants. We visited Mall of America one day. We also visited the frozen Minnehaha Park waterfall and hiked around behind it, which was pretty cool.

I would recommend this property and may end of back here again someday!

Terrific location, great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful service by the entire family in a most comfortable home. The property was all we expected and as advertised. Their video helped to a climate us to the home. We enjoyed many restaurants, like activities, the state and county fairs, family activities and 2 plays. I would recommend the property and family to anyone asking.

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the accommodations. The location was close to everything and we loved the movie room! We were really busy with friends and family so we didn't have time to use all the extras but next time we will! Thanks Ms Portia for your friendliness! This is a much better alternative than a hotel stay with all the luxuries And comforts of home!

Great house, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I rented out the house for a few guests who were making the trek from out of state to come to my wedding, and I stayed there one night as well. Very, very nice. They were very friendly (and forgiving, as I showed up late and was quite the poor communicator since my mind was on the wedding), and my friends really enjoyed themselves.

I would 100% recommend this place if you are looking for something in the area.

Great SW suburb location, 22 Minutes to Airport/Mall of America! Resort Quality! Two Golf Courses, Mystic Lake Theatre (Vegas type shows), Mystic Lake and Little Six Casinos, Several Gourmet Restaurants, Spa/Health Club all less than two miles! Near Cantebury Downs Race Track, Valley Fair Amusement Park, Spring Lake Regional Park (many trails). Mall of America is quick and easy drive as well as airport. Shuttle Service Available! Easy access to Eden Prairie, Bloomington for those corporate areas. This is an ideal location because of the lack of traffic. Staying downtown may mean a few less miles, but not more convienant due to traffic and stop lights!

Other Activities: Visit all the great Lakes, Mall of America, Museums & so much more!!! You name it, this location offers it and/or it is within about 30 minutes or less to most of the St. Paul and Minneapolis attractions. Great area with easy access to freeways without tons of traffic!

Golf: LOCATED ON GOLF COURSE, TWO GOLF COURSES WITHIN 1 MILE! Several others in 15 minutes or less!

Please go to the Wilds golf course website and also to the Mystic Lake Casino web pages. These are both challenging top notch courses. Additionally, Cleary Lake Preserve has a beginner level golf course just about 5 miles away which is located within an area with a lake, swimming, canoing, and trails! There are also additional golf courses in Prior Lake and Scott/Dakota county such as the 'Preserves' and the 'Legends' and more. Please mapquest Prior Lake, MN and you will find more golf courses than you will have time to visit!

Walk out the backyard and see the 18th hole and club house over the small lake our beautiful back yard is located on. 'Chip' balls from the back yard into the small lake if you want to! The driving range is less than a mile away! The Wild's requires Golf Carts and you can drive your cart right to your home to catch lunch between holes if you want or enjoy the club house.

Ski: Buck Hill Ski Resort is the closest ski area. It is a wonderful ski area offering beginner to intermediate runs and also has lots of ski board & snow tubing! Please visit their website.

We are also about 20 minutes from the Highland Ski Area. Highland is excellent for beginner skiers and there is an advanced ramp for those who do extreme ski jumping.
