About the property

Lake Front Cottage Sleeps 8

Don't miss out on reserving this beautiful cottage on a small, quiet and beautiful lake. Contact us today for your vacation! We still have some limited June, July & August dates open. September is also a beautiful time to visit this lake property!

"Someday Came" Cottage is on a quiet, family-friendly, fun recreational lake where all ages can enjoy swimming, fishing, boating and all water sports. With the cottage's close proximity to the waters' edge, you can enjoy both great views and the relaxing sounds of the water from both inside and out. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the loons and bald eagles from either the lakeside deck or from the dock. Spend your afternoon sun-bathing followed by a refreshing dip in the lake (no need to worry about weeds as the swimming area is treated for weed control). Finish off the day with a relaxing sauna, roasting marshmallows over the open fire, stargazing, and looking for the Northern Lights.

Someday Came Cottage is well appointed and decorated for your relaxation and fun. You will find a well-stocked kitchen (large refrigerator with extra refrigerator in garage)with an ample supply of dishes, glassware, cookware, cutlery, wineglasses, towels, and other amenities. This cozy cottage comfortably sleeps 8 and all bed linens & pillows are provided. Bath towels are all provided as well. You will only need to bring your clothes, bathing suits, beach towels, food and drink!

From the lakeside deck, you can enjoy gazing out over the water and taking in the beautiful sunsets. The deck is furnished with dining table & chairs, umbrella, extra seating, and gas grill. Enjoy a cozy fire in the fire ring where there is an ample supply of firewood and additional chairs.

Enjoy your favorite water sport right from the dock. Swim, catch fish, kayak, canoe, paddle boat or rent the pontoon boat that is kept right at the dock (pontoon rental is $50 per day or $250 weekly, 1st tank of gas included.) Enjoy a yard game of bocce ball, ladder golf, or "bean bag", all of which are provided for your enjoyment.

Although there is plenty to enjoy outside, you will also find plenty of indoor entertainment: TV, Satellite TV, DVD library, WIFI (country WIFI is sometimes unreliable), cards, dice, and board games. For the more competitive side of you, head to the "garage game room" and enjoy foosball, Ping-Pong, and pool.

This is the perfect destination for your getaway and is an ideal setting for couples, families, and girls weekends.

Contact owners if interested in bringing a camper/and or tents for an additional fee.

Please note that there isn't any public boat access to the lake but the pontoon boat is available to rent during your entire stay.

Available for rentals May 1- October 1.

Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m.

Again, please call or email us today regarding your vacation!

Couple Fall Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved staying at the cottage for our fall get away. It had everything we needed. Enjoyed kicking back for a week in the Duluth area and we especially loved taking a couple of days and just relaxing at the place. Even though it rained several days the cottage and it's warm environment was cozy. We will diffidently be back again!

We loved our time at the cabin. Rick and Cheryl have thought of everything to help your family make wonderful memories at the lake. The game room is fabulous, the fish were biting and the cabin was perfect for our family. Thank you for a wonderful week - we'll be back!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has been in our family until about 20 years ago and when we found it on VRBO we couldn't wait to rent and visit it again! The place has been beautifully updated, is decorated is a fun way and easily accommodated our family of 7. We found the owners to be very attentive and thoughtful, they have every detail covered right down to a box of rice ready to go for any wet phones! There is so much to do on the property, we never had a dull moment or time for TV; it was wonderful!

We look forward to renting this cabin over and over again...unless, of course, it's ever up for sale then we look forward to the opportunity to bring it back to our family! ;) Thank you so much to Carol for putting so much effort into making our stay perfect, we are so happy this cabin is in your hands.
