TWIN CITIES PRIVATE ISLAND HIDEAWAY! RENT THE ENTIRE 11.5-ACRE ISLAND!

Shakopee Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 5

Enjoy the beauty and peace of an urban oasis.

Looking for a wooded retreat but don’t want to spend hours in traffic? In the Twin Cities for business or vacation?

Located on Lake O’Dowd, this 11.5-acre Private Island, you'll have all to yourself, is approximately 34 minutes to MSP airport and 30 minutes to downtown Minneapolis.

Experience the peaceful seclusion of a stunning and unspoiled wilderness setting while enjoying every modern amenity. The lovely air-conditioned cottage (the only house on the island) has 2 bedrooms, a living and dining room and a full bath and sleeps 5. Unwind and watch HD satellite TV or pop in a DVD and kick back.

Park on our mainland lot and take one of the small boats provided to the island. For larger boats, ask us about a local rental company that rents all things marine. Or bring your own boat! Have fun fishing, water skiing, tubing, exploring the island, or just relaxing on the deck. Take advantage of everything this spectacular island has to offer. Once you do, you will want to return again and again.

Diverse Natural Island Beauty: The 11.5 acre island has an array of diverse terrain. There are hiking trails, hills, sandy shores, a large bay, rocky outcroppings, grassy knolls and a hardwood forest. You can catch a glimpse of deer, weasels, raccoons, muskrats, Great Blue Heron, wood ducks and a variety of song birds. You may hear an occasional hoot of the Great Horned Owl. If your stay is in the summer, you can catch the fireflies twinkling throughout the night. The island is in the middle of a fully recreational lake teaming with bass, walleye, northern and muskie. You can cast your line right from the dock on the island or the mainland lot.

Docks, Boats, Life Jackets and Fishing Gear: Available for your use is a 17 ft canoe and a 12 ft jon boat. We also provide life jackets and a modest supply of fishing gear - 2 rods and reels, small box of lures, fishing net and 5 gal bucket. If you'd like a motorized boat, you may bring your own motor to use on the jon boat. It will accommodate a trolling motor or an outboard motor, up to 6 hp - max wt 86 lbs. There are two 18 ft docks for your use - one on the island and one on the mainland. The island is only about 135 ft from the mainland, so it's a quick crossing.

Even though the island is quite large, outdoor camping (tents, etc.) is not allowed, due to the fact that it is in a residential area. Also, no campfires or firearms are allowed on the island or our mainland lot.

Reservations and Payments and Check In and Out Times: Reservations made at least 14 days prior to rental are preferred. However, contact Cindy to check into last minute rentals. No same day reservations.

All payments made through PayPal only.

Check In time is between noon and 4 PM.

Check out time must be by noon.

Be sure to bring sturdy hiking shoes for all! The island has several trails, but they are rustic in nature with uneven terrain, so good hiking shoes are necessary.

The cottage is approximately 165 feet up a hill from the lake and we provide a dolly to carry your belongings up from shore.

We provide just about everything you could possibly need during your stay, except food, clothes and your own personal toiletries (although we do stock plenty of shampoo, crème rinse, body wash. suntan lotion, bug spray, etc).

And no need to bring bottled water unless you just can't go a day without having it with you. We provide softened and filtered water that comes from our private well deep in the earth (approximately 380 feet down).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Cindy,

We had a wonderful time on the island! Your cabin is lovely and we felt very at home here. This was our 3rd annual girls weekend, and it has definitely been our favorite. We had a fun time exploring the island and floating on the lake all afternoon. We are so happy we found this place; it was just what we needed!

Rare Find!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a one-of-a-kind experience! Beautiful, breezy, shaded 11.5 acre island with hiking paths to explore, all to ourselves! The rental home was beautiful. We walked in and were struck by the darling furnishings. The place was well stocked, immaculate, and had all the modern conveniences we needed. We'll definitely be back! Thanks for a great vacation experience, Cindy!

Surrounded by Nature on the edge of a metro area

What a great find !! This new cottage with all new furnishings is very secluded, but easily accessible. We could not believe that you could be in such a nature setting and yet be so close to a major city. We stayed 3 nights, and had a great time. Too cool for swimming in October but the trees were in full fall color. A great getaway for our family.
