Cabin with outdoor hot tub and view of Second Lake!

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Peaceful Cabin On Second Lake. Enjoy the hot tub, fire pit, and the lake!

This sweet little modern log cabin is just 2 miles off of interstate I-35! 100 miles north of the Twin Cities and 50 miles south of Duluth. The is the perfect place to lose yourself for a week or weekend to find relaxation! Second Lake is a 44 acre private (no public access), serene, quiet lake with a spectacular view from anywhere on the lake. The cabin presents 2 bedrooms one with queen bed, one with full size bed. Full kitchen (no dishwasher) and full bath. Extras include free onsite washer and dryer, cable tv, and wireless internet! Enjoy a spacious camp fire area for those chilly, minnesota nights, and our outdoor hot tub for the even chillier ones! Lake is visible from cabin although there is no lake access or swimming area. Although at the cabin, there is a little trail that leads to a dock... the dock is not practical for use. To access the lake, you would have a short 4 minute walk down a pretty wooded driveway! There you would find paddle boat, canoe and row boat to use. We have four adult size life jackets available.

We cannot allow pets.

Complimentary Kettle River Pizza included with each stay!

Amenities –

Hot and cold running well water - the water in this location is naturally very high in iron. Even with the extensive water filtering systems installed in the cabin, the water can (not always) have a iron tinge to it and can (not always) have a sulfur odor. The refrigerator dispenses water (although slowly).

Heated cabin

Central air

Full kitchen (sorry, no dishwasher) Fridge has water and ice dispenser. This water does come out of the dispenser SLOW, but the water is very good!


Full bathroom

Cable tv

Bedroom with queen size bed

Bedroom with full size bed

Futon in living room - not the most comfortable to sleep on!

Washer and dryer

Hot tub - Please note, that there is always the chance that the hot tub may need to be serviced before or on rare occasions, during your stay. It can happen that, after inspecting the hot tub when guests check out, we need to empty it, clean it and then refill before the next guests can enjoy. It could happen that the water may not be up to temp by the time the next guest arrives later that day. This does not happen very often, but the possibility is there. Also, if there are several people staying at the cabin, or if the stay is more than two days, we may need to check the treatment levels during your stay. If so, we try to do it while you are away from the cabin so as to not disturb your time there. We do not need to enter the cabin to do this. Though these situations may be inconvenient to guests, it is necessary.

Lake - Although you can see the lake...please note that this property does not have direct access to the lake. You will need take a short walk down a wooded drive to access the water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lance's place was amazing in every way. We went up for a weekend getaway with a group of friends, and with the fire pit, grill, and hot tub, this was the perfect cozy cabin for the event. The house was stalked with every connivence imaginable, and with seven people, we never felt cramped. Lance was such a gracious host before, during, and after our stay. We'll be raving about this for months to come!

Excellent stay- Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this lovely little cabin! So much to love: the location, the view, the peace and quiet, the hot tub. The cabin itself is very well equipped and cozy. The beds were comfy and the place is very clean. Lisa went above and beyond for us. We will definitely return.Don't overlook this one- it's a real treasure!

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year enjoying this haven away from the city. We spent most of the weekend soaking in the hot tub and enjoying the breeze coming off the lake. This is a great opportunity to get away from it all and relax. The cabin has everything we need- it's close to a host of cozy cafes, 3 state parks and 2 movie theaters when we want to get out and explore.

We would highly recommend that you check this place out.

Peaceful and relaxing cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at second lake cabin in willow river mn. Cozy and clean cabin with everything you need to relax. Comfortable bed, crisp WiFi, dish network satellite tv, fridge with crushed ice maker and filtered water, (free complimentary kettle river frozen pizza) outside hot tub and bonfire pit. The location is beautiful. It overlooks second lake with a private path to the lake. Very peaceful and quiet which is what we want when selecting a place to stay on vacation. We also liked the fact that it is close from the twin cities. For us from coon rapids, it’s only 1 1/2 hours away. We definitely will be back in the future. Thank you again Lisa for your hospitality.

Great cabin close to the twin cities.

  • 5 of 5

Great area and owners! Lisa is a great communicator, and is awesome at making you feel right at home. She always has a couple of delicious local frozen pizza's in the freezer waiting for you. I also love looking out at the lake while sitting in a hot tub while it's snowing outside. This is my 3rd time staying here, and it definitely won't be the last.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lake, gorgeous sunsets, and crazy wildlife! I've named the chipmunk's and the birds. This is the place we go to unwind in the fall. The hot tub is glorious, and the area is just so beautiful in the fall! Thanks for the pizza! See you next fall!
