Pristine Deer Lake House

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come experience this incredible “get away” on pristine Deer Lake, “The Lake of Changing Colors.” The turquoise water makes you feel like you’re in the Caribbean. Our house features a two level floor plan including three bedrooms (queen, queen plus two twin beds, and one twin bunk bed), two full bathrooms, full kitchen, full laundry, spacious living/dining area with wood burning fireplace, game room (foosball, TV, etc.), garage and boathouse.

This south facing home, located just 50 feet from the water, offers stunning views. The upper level balcony creates a magnificent, bird’s eye view of Battleship Island and the surrounding lake while the lower spacious deck provides the perfect setting for barbecue, picnics and campfires. The hard-sand lake bottom offers excellent swimming and water sports area.

Deer Lake is known for world class muskie, bass, and walleye fishing. In the miles of state land you will find excellent bird hunting(pheasant and grouse) and white tail deer. There are four golf courses within 30 minutes and Suomi Hills, known for outstanding hiking and cross country skiing, is only a 10 minute drive. Other winter activities include ice fishing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

This is the perfect place to spend your own private retreat!

Do you have a big group and need more room or a small group and just need one bedroom? We have a one bedroom/one bath cottage next door available. VRBO Listing #340616 .

Great Lake views & comfortable space

  • 4 of 5

The exterior is not appealing but inside is spacious & updated. Well-stocked kitchen & generous good quality sheets & towels. Kids love the foosball table. Note there is a somewhat long path downhill to the lake. Nice sandy shallow swimming -no weeds. Some minor issues: noisy dehumidifier in walkout level; bunk beds are in small closet-like room & trundle beds crammed into 2nd BR. Other 2 beds just ok. Entire exterior & deck needs maintenance.

Owner's Response: We arrived the day after you departed for our annual spring clean and maintenance work. I appreciate your critique as I found the same things in need of attention. Stain and paint were applied to the decks and exterior. We are in the process of using forest service type construction for our path to improve ease to the lake. We strive to do our best in keeping our guests happy and comfortable.

Great Location in Northern MN

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here writing and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

The cabin has the feel of staying at an old cabin with a completely renovated interior. It's absolutely beautiful inside and spacious - classy. Great wood fireplace and large deck and fire pit area looking out over the lake.

The cabin is within five miles of incredible hiking/cross country ski trails in the National Forest that go around spectacular lakes.

Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time. I, too, love the nearby trails. They do a beautiful job of grooming for cross country skiing in the winter and in the fall, the leaf colors are spectacular! It's a hidden paradise that not many people know about!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days at this cabin last week. What a beautiful spot! The cabin is very nicely appointed and had lots of room to spread out.

The crackling fireplace was very nice the day it snowed :-)

The owners were wonderful and easy to work with. We'll be doing this again.

The perfect Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to personally say this is such a wonderful place. My boyfriend and I went up north for my birthday and it was a perfect romantic getaway. The listing photos don’t describe how beautiful the inside & outside really is they only show a glimpse. Very clean well maintained and has everything you need but the food of course. The owner is a very wonderful person and very helpful with all of the questions I had and got back to me on the listing in a nice timely manner (We have rented from Vrbo before and some people take a long time).

It’s nice to walk into a place and feel right at home and this cabin most defiantly succeeded in making everything feel like home. We would love to come back, so we will most defiantly be keeping this on our list of places to go again.

Another Excellent Vacation on Deer Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that our family has rented this lovely spot on the incomparable Deer Lake. We stayed for two weeks and could hardly bear to leave at the end of our stay. It is so peaceful here, and the perfect place for rest and relaxation. We always enjoy the house and find it comfortable and spacious enough for our family. We were pleased to see the new stove in the kitchen this year, and having laundry facilities on site is so convenient. The owners are ideal hosts, and have thought to make this place feel like home for everyone who stays. We'll be back, for sure!

great property - great owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a week and had a wonderful experience! The owners are great and answered all of our questions in a timely manner as we were making our choice about which property to rent. The cabin is more beautiful than the pictures reveal. It's wonderfully furnished right down to the quality bed linens - what a treat. The main level of the cabin is spacious with three sliding glass doors lakeside which fill the entire cabin with light and panoramic views of the lake. I enjoy cooking, so I really appreciated that the kitchen is open to the dining room and also offered great lake views. The lower level of the cabin walks out to a large deck with a picnic table and fire ring and spectacular views of the lake as well.

All of the properties in the nearby area, including this one, have very large lots so it creates a private experience with a mix of flat lawn open areas to play yard games as well as wooded areas within the property. The lake is unbelievably clear! It's good to read about the lake before you go because there are rocks and shallow areas that are unpredictable, however it adds to the beauty because of the lake's clarity! All that is said about the beauty of the lake is certainly true.

As we bid farewell to the lake on our final day, we stood on the dock and watched a bass slowly swimming among the reeds along shore. Nice!
