About the property

Modern 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath Home, Relax In The Valley With Waterfront!

Fully furnished Retreat house set up to accommodate 9 Scrapbooking/Quilters as well as families or small groups looking for a great getaway home! The house is fully furnished with a main floor master bedroom and bath inclusive of a deep soaking tub and separate shower along with 2 lower level bedrooms and separate full bath. Each room is set up with a large bed and set of bunks to accommodate any group. The home has a total of 9 brand new beds (2 queens, 3 fulls and 4 twin) allowing ample space for multiple families and large groups!

For the late fall, winter and early spring season, the home is set up for crafters. The lower level living area is set up with 9 large craft tables for ample work space to accommodate the scrapbookers, quilters, stampers and any other similar hobbies. **PLEASE NOTE, there is a maximum of 9 guests for retreat groups as we are unable to facilitate groups beyond that size. ALSO TO NOTE for groups coming for other reasons during this time frame, the tables will remain set up in the lower living area and cannot be taken down or moved.

The house is close to Rochester for travelers visiting the Mayo Clinic (15.8 miles to downtown). Contact us for different package details if you are coming to the area as a patient as we offer additional services should you plan a stay and prefer a fully furnished home and kitchen instead of a hotel. (Additional options include but are not limited to airport pick-up/drop off, use of private vehicle or arranging of transportation available, arrival with stocked kitchen upon request, etc.)

Property is also located on the water front with access to Lake Zumbro via a short boat ride. Please note that Lake Zumbro is a reservoir and occasionally after heavy rains the lake will have a no wake zone until water recedes. Contact owner to check availability of a Pontoon and/or fishing boat. Lake Zumbro is known for its fantastic fishing of Bass and panfish. Kayaking and Canoeing along the quiet water front is also available at no additional cost.

About Jeremiah & Jessica Flotterud

We are a local family of 4 who has always enjoyed getting away to Lake Zumbro. We purchased this beautiful property as a way for us to continue to enjoy the area with a place of our own. With our busy schedules, we have decided to open our home up to other families who enjoy the similar getaways as we do. We are located on a huge lot allowing endless opportunities for tenting and outdoor recreational activities! We encourage you to visit, we know you'll love the escape just as much as we do!!!

Why Jeremiah & Jessica Flotterud chose Oronoco

As mentioned, we are less than 15 miles from Rochester, close enough to zip to town for activities, shopping or appointments at the Mayo Clinic but far enough away to feel like you have escaped the busy world and settled into pure R & R!! This property has tons of outdoor space inclusive of nearly 3 acres of yard, a huge deck to enjoy the views, a 3 season porch and a walk out basement with large patio. The home is fully furnished with everything you need to get away!!

What makes this house unique

With the beautiful views and the peaceful setting, this is a great location for any family or group to get away! We are located up stream from Lake Zumbro giving us a quiet waterfront to enjoy but still a very short boat ride to the lake to enjoy fishing and water sports with your family and friends. A pontoon is available to rent during certain times of the year to allow maximum enjoyment at our home! There will be kayaks, and possibly a fishing boat available as well.

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 had more than enough space in this home. Much of the inside has been updated and is kept up very well. The owners showed us the boat at checkin, then left us alone. Honestly, we reached out to them with a couple questions and they were very responsive to us. The large deck, expansive backyard, and the pontoon were my kids favorites. They also kayaked a lot as the river is not very strong so the kayaking was easy/fun/relaxing. Overall, we were very impressed with this home and are sharing this link with our friends with our strong recommendation. Thanks Jeremiah and Jessica!

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for a large family to stay for a funeral. This place was clean, welcoming and up-to-date. Everyone had a great time; there was even plenty for the kids to do.

Thanks to the owners for a great way to get our family together.

Great getaway

What a great weekend retreat to get away with the girls. I so appreciate having appliances and basics already in the house. Love the cleanliness of the home and the responsiveness of the owners. Already looking forward to booking again!

Just right

  • 5 of 5

We filled the house with 9 ladies looking for time and space to work on personal projects, share meals together, and rest/relax. This property is just right for that. From the workspace in the basement, to the decent sized tv for sharing a movie, a soaking tub for the mom that wants to soak and read a book, a large dining space to all eat together, and three separate sleeping spaces for the late nighters and early risers to separate. It is a great (and clean!) space for all of that.
