Lake Fremont

Zimmerman, MN

Welcome to your next vacation getaway! Nestled on Lake Fremont with a beautiful view of a peaceful natural setting, this house has a huge deck, sandy beach and lakeside fire pit. Relax in the warmth and openness of the main living room with its vaulted ceilings and gas fireplace; surrounded by two bedrooms, open kitchen, wood floors, huge windows, skylights and gas fireplace. This is your home away from home as you give your body a rest, go fishing, have a picnic, relax on the sandy beach or make s’mores at the fire pit. Bring your boat and cruise the lake and explore the island in the center of the lake. In the winter, bring your snowmobile and explore the miles of nearby trails. The bonfire pit is just steps from the water.

The master suite is lofted and has skylights. The second bedroom has a lake/beach view. There is also a large L-shaped couch perfect for afternoon naps.

The living room has skylights, large LED TV with basic cable (included), DVD, and internet TV. The large windows and doors offer a great view of the lake.

Like to fish? Throw in a line and catch sunnies right off the dock! Or cast for something more challenging - the lake was recently restocked with game fish by the DNR.

Winter sports - great area for cross country skiing, snowmobiling or ice fishing.

If you are bringing the family, we have a wide variety of family games, cable TV, wireless internet and a DVD player.

Like to eat out or go bowling? Within one mile there is an excellent, affordable family restaurant and bowling alley, Zimmerman Bowl, as well as a gas station, grocery store, liquor store and a Dunn Brothers coffee. If you enjoy shopping, there are a handful of wonderful antique and vintage shops in Zimmerman.

All furnishings, linens, cooking utensils, and kitchenware are included.

About Craig Sandok

Christina and I bought this house and used it as our lake cabin for several years. We have since both started businesses and are starting a family which leaves us little time to get to the lake. Since we can't use it, we hope you can. We also hope you enjoy relaxing in it as much as we do!

Craig Sandok purchased this house in 2006

Why Craig Sandok chose Zimmerman

This is a great lake house with beautiful views and it's the perfect place to relax.

What makes this house unique

This house is very close to the Twin Cities. There are great restaurants and bars in Zimmerman and nearby Elk River and Otsego.

Exceptional, convenient, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent several weeks here and enjoyed every minute. Home floor plan is family-friendly, updated, clean and comfortable. Location is excellent, with close proximity to Zimmerman, yet feels like up north.The private dock and beach are clean and close. Our children spent every afternoon in the water; swimming, kayaking, fishing and paddle boarding. Doesn't get much better!

Great location away from the city!

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if you’re looking for something with a “in the woods” feel. Has all the amenities you need and is pretty clean considering it’s age and purpose. The best part of our experience was how fast the owner contacted us and made sure we had all the necessary info to get in late from the airport.

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to spend a weekend at Freemont Cottage and even happier when we got a big snow storm to enjoy while we were there! It was so cozy, and we had a lot of fun watching the snow fly and walking around on the frozen lake. The house had everything we needed, and we loved the big table by the windows for doing games and puzzles.

Nice little getaway.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is nicely decorated and cozy. Great view out to the lake and has a nice beach with a fire pit and a large dock to enjoy fishing, swimming or watching the ducks & geese.

Really fun, eclectic shops in town or close enough for a run to Albertville or the cities for more serious shopping. Otherwise, if your more into nature, there is a nature park with groomed trails within a short walk to the east, or it’s a very lovely scenic walk around the lake.
