Perfect for a couple looking for a romantic lakeside vacation or a small family wanting a taste of the lake country magic, this cozy cabin on the north shore of Pelican Lake in Otter Tail County offers the best of the lake country. Imagine yourself sitting on the bench at the end of the dock, scanning the lake horizon for a sign of your loved one returning from a day of fishing. Maybe you'll want to put a line in yourself, from the end of the dock. Imagine waking up to the sound of a loon or the low hum of a fisherman trolling out for the day. Imagine drifting on your inflatable or taking a kayak ride along the north shore. Enjoy a romantic sunset from the front window.
This log cabin was just completed in September of 2009. It contains a fully furnished kitchen, queen size bed, fold-down futon, and all linens. There is a large deck on the lakeside that hangs just above the shore and has a beautiful patio set so you can serve dinner outside on nice days. There is an eleven foot lake kayak at your disposal during your stay, stored on the kayak rack attached to the 24' dock. Sorry, no boat is available, but you are welcome to bring your own....we now have a boat lift, and the public boat ramp is only a mile west.
This energy efficient cabin has all the modern conveniences with none of the hassle. It has a air source heat pump climate control system that keeps your cabin at a steady temperature, heated in the spring and fall, and cooled in the summer. With an R-44 roof system, you won't need to use much energy to keep the cabin just the right temperature.
During the summer months, the cabin is available by the week, month, or season. During the shoulder seasons, the cabin is available for 2 day minimum rentals. The cabin is closed from late October through the end of March.
And speaking of convenience (weren't we?), the world famous Zorbaz on the Beach is right across the road, if you don't feel like cooking. On summer holiday weekends (Memorial day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day), entertainment is available. The Yacht club is the closest neighbor to the west (about 1/4 mile away), so you can enjoy the boats coming and going during lazy summer afternoons. It just doesn't get any better than this.
Pelican Lake has recently achieved the status of a Minnesota Star Lake! What does that mean? Minnesota's State Legislature formally established a Star Lakes and Rivers program in 2008 to encourage and reward citizen-based lake and river associations that actively participate in protecting and enhancing surface waters of Minnesota.
Note: There are several Pelican Lakes in Minnesota! This cabin is located in Otter Tail County, between Detroit Lakes and Pelican Rapids.

My husband and I enjoy living in sun drenched Colorado, but when it came time for a vacation home, I returned to my roots in Minnesota. There is something about the Minnesota lake life that cannot be duplicated anywhere else. This property belonged to my aunt's estate, and when I bought it in 2008, I realized that the original cabin could not be saved. I had the local fire department burn it down for a training exercise, and had Log Homes, Minnesota, erect the new structure.
Minnesota lake living is unique in many ways. The people are fun loving and generous of spirit. The pace is slow and relaxed.
I love an early morning kayak on the lake. Often I can only hear the sound of the paddle hitting the surface of the water.
