About the property

Peaceful Cabin On Second Lake. Enjoy The Hot Tub, Fire Pit, And Lake!

This sweet little modern log cabin is just a short distance from the shores of second lake in willow river, mn! Second lake hideaway is located 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 full of relaxation! Second lake is a 44 acre private (no public access), serene, quiet lake with a spectacular view from anywhere on the lake. Winter of 2013 was pretty harsh on the fish supply... the fishing has improved this summer.

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 view visible from cabin although there is no lake access or swimming area. To access the lake, you would have a short 4 minute walk down the 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!

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!

Beautiful location. Shame about lack of cleanliness, damp patches, and clutter.

  • 2 of 5

Location was peaceful and charming. Perfect in fact.

Cabin it's self was very dated , 2nd bedroom had washer and dryer inside. Whole place was very dusty and needed a good hoovering. Damp in both bedrooms, which isn't good when my daughters have asthma.

The bath and toilet were brown. Really needed a good up date.

Owner's Response: Gosh... we are surprised by this review. We have not heard the cabin described like this before. We take great pride in keeping it very clean, tidy and pleasing to the eye. The new washer and dryer are tucked into a closet area in the bedroom. The washer and dryer are available for guests to use while there, which seems to be an asset to the cabin. The entire interior of the cabin was freshly painted with modern colors this early summer. The toilet bowl does have some iron stains, but it is very clean. The water is naturally very high in iron - we have several filter devices in place which remedies the majority of the iron . The bathtub is definitely NOT brown. We thoroughly vacuum the carpet, wash the floors, disinfect the counters, sinks, toilet and bathtub area after each stay. It may have been an extra humid day - so this may contribute to the "damp" feeling in the air. The décor, bedding and furniture are modern and go with the "feel" of the cabin. I am unsure re: the clutter comment. We have only the basics there. We feel really bad that these guests have such a negative opinion of the cabin. We want everyone to love the experience and want to came back. Thank you.

Extremely clean and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Other than the owner coming and draining the hot tub during our stay and sending a text saying, "Sorry we wont have time to fill it" it was a nice place. The owner lives a few yards away and will stop by daily at the very least to make sure everything is ok. She usually waits until you leave for the day to check the place out and make sure you are taken care of. It was a well equipped cabin and very clean. They stocked the freezer with frozen pizza for us and also had coffee and creamer. They have a canoe and paddle boat for the swamp. Basically, this cabin has everything you would need. I was very impressed with how much time and thought went into preparing this cabin for an enjoyable stay.

Perfect, romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My (now fiancé) and I absolutely loved our weekend stay at this cabin a few weeks ago. The owners were so nice and even left us our choice of a delicious frozen pizza from their company! Very cute, peaceful, romantic cabin. The hot tub was a nice, added bonus to an already cute and quaint cabin. It's very secluded with pretty views. This was the perfect place for my fiancé to propose and this is a place we will cherish forever! Highly recommend staying here. We can't wait to go back! :)

Lovely Weekend, Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This year my girlfriends and I decided to move our annual girl's weekend from a hotel to a cabin. We are so glad we did! This cute cabin was tucked into the woods right by a lake. The view was beautiful in the morning. Everything was fully stocked, including firewood and pizza! The Kettle River pizzas were delicious, and they included a couple of them as complimentary in the freezer.

The hot tub was perfect for soaking in when the night cooled off. The mosquito netting around the hottub was perfect. We are planning on coming back next year!
