We are offering our guesthouse for our home and it is set on 20 acres of rolling hills. This is a farm-like setting with free-range chickens, barn cats, and couple of dogs. This unique property offers a country feel while being close to the Twin Cities. You will have about 800 sq. ft. to relax in or sit out by a campfire, enjoy a walking trail, or rest in a hammock. All this is a 10 minutes drive from Cabela's, the Outlet Mall in Albertville, and Hillside mountain bike trails in Elk River.
“My wife and I just spent a month at Melissa and Joel’s country farm. Everything was perfect. We have stayed at many Airbnb’s over the years and this will be remembered as our favorite. The photos while accurate, don’t do this place justice. It is furnished impeccably, extremely clean and very comfortably. In addition Joel and Melissa go the extra mile. Melissa makes the best chocolate chip cookies ever! When our grandkids came to visit Melissa took them out to pick eggs, provided carrots to feed the neighbor’s horses and made sure they were visited by their friendly dogs. Beds were very comfortable, easy to doze off in the lounge chairs while watching the TV, and the kitchen is stocked with anything you might need. We hope to return again!”
Enjoy a private shoreline w/ 70' dock, screened in "club house", and deck. Canoe and kayaks and lifejackets provided. Bring your own boat-the public boat launch is just across the lake! Take in the view from large windows facing the lake. Guests will be treated to a fridge stocked w/pop and water; bedding, towels, and basic amenities provided. Dogs welcome with pre-approval. Please READ through the entire listing and house rules before making a reservation.
“My husband and I are from Chicago and were looking for a place to stay near his MN work projects, and so happy that we found Laura's home in Big Lake! We were able to bring our two Labrador Retrievers who LOVE to swim, and they are in heaven, swimming on a daily basis with private, lake-front access. The house has everything that we needed for a long-term stay, and we were very comfortable. There's a canoe and a couple of kayaks available for use, along with fishing poles, so plenty of outdoor activities, too. If you and your family are looking for a nice getaway where you can relax and enjoy, don't hesitate... highly recommended!”
Our private guest room is a warm & safe place with a cozy bed, a Smart TV/Blu-Ray system to watch Netflix/etc..., and adequate space to get comfortable. Along with the guest room, you get a well-stocked private bathroom just a few feet outside the room, a shared den, a shared kitchen for ice/water, cooking, and FREE Keurig coffee/cocoa. We also have a rec area downstairs (pool table, ping pong, etc...) avail upon request. We warmly embrace all our guests & make them feel so at home. Join us!
“Don and Kami’s place is amazingly clean, quiet and cozy. It is close to all kinds of amenities, which I hope to explore on another visit, and major freeways to make getting around super easy. They are lovely host/hostess and made me feel very welcome in their home.”
