About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 15 Sleeps

Charming four bedroom house right on the lake. Large yard, dock, fire-pit, and more. Catch the setting sun in the living room, deck, patio, or family room. There is a twenty foot pontoon boat available for rental. We also have Kayaks, a Stand-Up Paddle Board, and a Paddle Boat available at no extra charge.

We have another cabin on the same lake that we've been renting for a while now. Please feel free to read the reviews: Do you have a really large group? Then inquire about renting both cabins at the same time.

This house features a full kitchen, washer and drier, and two bathrooms. The lake is great for swimming and fishing. You can swim right out front. There is also a public beach with lifeguard just a few hundred feet from the cabin. Dogs are welcome. Grill your days catch on the deck overlooking the lake with our new gas grill.

Elk lake is the best swimming lake in the county. There is a public sandy beach with lifeguards (Certain hours only) only a couple hundred yards away.

Both Elk and Lower Elk are great sand bottom fishing lakes. In either lake you can go after Walleye, Northern Pike, Large mouth Bass, Crappie, and Sunfish. You're able to fish from the shore, the docks or from a boat.

Only two miles away you can find Hoffman, MN. Hoffman is a small quiet town but you'll be able to get most of the necessities you'll need there. It has a gas station, a restaurant, a bar/restaurant, grocery store, liquor store, and other shops. If you like to golf, we have a special deal with Tipsinah Mounds Golf Course in Elbow Lake.

If you need a little more action than sleepy Hoffman is able to provide that's not a problem as you're only about twenty minutes away from Alexandria MN. Alexandria has lots of shopping at dozens of antique stores and other shops. There are plenty of restaurants, retail stores, golf courses, and even a winery.

We'd really love to share our little bit of heaven with you.

Key words: Sandy Shore, fishing, walleye, kayak, cabin, pontoon, golf, relaxation.

Wonderful Serene Lake House

  • 5 of 5

"Quiet Lake Home" rings true. My husband and I had a wonderful mini vacation here for 5 days, 8/31/17 - 9/05/17. Weather was perfect! The house is equipped with "everything" you need including in the kitchen. There is an over sized window facing the lake & dock and a wonderful patio. The house is set back from the road with a beautiful front yard with trees (and an apple tree) and grass. At night the deer come out to eat the apples on the ground. Very peaceful sitting on the dock watching the water with a glass of wine. Did I mention how serene this sweet vacation house is? We'll definitely be back!

Perfect space for our group

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year here and the space works very well for us! We had 10 total, 6 adults and 4 kids. The kids love the beach/dock area with the kayaks, paddle boat and paddle board. We rented the pontoon and had our own fishing boat so plenty of room for fishing and boating. The fishing was slow for us this year compared to last year, hoping that was not normal. The cabin is older and could use some updating, but overall had everything we needed. Went to dinner at the local pub/grill one night, Bullfrog's. Was very impressed that they accommodated 10 of us on the spot with smiles. Great food! Looking forward to coming back next year. Thanks Tim!!

Family Vacation August 2017

  • 4 of 5

Great time for our family of 11, including our daughter,our son, their spouses & our 5 grandchildren ranging in age from 10 to19. House was roomy enough for all of us. The lower level included a large family room with foosball table, dart board, TV & separate sleeping area. Deck was perfect for eating outside & being able to see the lake. House was well stocked with kitchen utensils, towels, etc - awesome having a washer & dryer to use. Large yard was perfect for outside games & for the dog to enjoy. Kids loved having the 2 kayaks, paddleboat & paddleboard to use. Younger grandkids caught fish off the dock & we were able to catch some out on the lake, including a walleye, some nice crappies, lots of blue gills. My husband had fun catching bass including a 19" one that gave him lots of fightl (The bass all went back in the lake after pictures were taken.) The lake is small (about a mile long and not real wide) but not busy - nice for fishing but not real good for large recreational boats. The lake stays calm so we were able to leave our boat tied up to the dock every night. The free boat landing is close so it was handy for our son-in-law to take his boat out each night.

Tim was very good to reply to questions we had & saved us on our last day by letting us use a spare battery when ours didn't work. Thanks, Tim.

There are some well-built steps down to the lake but has an incline getting to the steps that doesn't have a rail so anyone with balance problems might have trouble. Tim did talk about putting in a rail along the brick incline.
