With a tree-house feel, enjoy extraordinary views of lake from home built in 2001. Just steps from welcoming tiki hut, dip toes into clear spring fed lake with sandy bottom. 1 hr from Mpls, 5 mins from large Sat flea market and many antique shops.
House has deck and screened in porch with comfy outdoor furniture. Open floor plan allows you to be with family/friends and see the lake from the kitchen. Upstairs has 2 bedrooms, one with California King and non-attached bath. Other room has attached bath and 1 queen. Downstairs basement is unfinished walk-out with windows. Basement has sleeping for 6, with 6 single beds (2 Bedrooms with 2 singles, and 2 singles in main living space). Plus, 1 finished bathroom downstairs. Laundry room and ping pong table also provided. Very large dining table that fits 10 people for sit down meals. Slowly but surely we are transforming the furniture into mid-century modern style. We think you will enjoy this relaxed and quiet setting.
You will have access to 95% of 2600 square ft house (1/2 finished, 1/2 unfinished, but usable).
My husband and I would like to meet you upon arrival, to give you the low-down on house and outdoor space. However, we do not plan to stay there. We hope you enjoy this level of privacy. Yet, we are available for questions and can let you know about eating establishments, where to shop for food, etc.
Our house sits on almost 2 acres, among trees and right on Lake Sylvia. There is only 1 neighbor's home visible to you and they are rarely there. You will have your own point to explore and can swim in super clean water on sandy bottom. Sometimes locals stop and swim on our point. This can be good or bad, depending upon your perspective. Either way, it tells you that our swim spot is desirable and only steps from our fun, bug-free tiki hut (shed transformed).
We expect you to have fun, but do so without smoking inside the home, without bringing pets, without leaving trash on the grounds. We expect you to treat our home, like you would treat your own, by leaving shoes at the door and giving the furnishing the respect they deserve. Kayaks and Stand up Paddle boards must not be damaged, or deposit will be withheld. You will fall in love with our house, property and pristine water. So, if you treat the home with respect, you be invited back again and again. :-)
Hi, I am 50 year old stay at home Mom and I love to play volleyball (sand and in-door), stand-up paddle and snowboard. My husband and I are transplants from Southern California, and have found a wonderful life in Minnesota. There is so much to do, the people are great and the seasons make it quite interesting! I like to cross country ski on our lake and that is incredible, especially on a sunny day, with fresh snow! I like to take our kids to Vikings games and low-key rock concerts in the Minneapolis area. I have traveled all over the United States, Europe, Austrailia, Virgin Islands and Costa Rica, but mostly in my 20's (before kids!). Hawaii has to be one of my favorite destinations! We hope to do more traveling in the future! Thanks! Phoebe
