Overview

Detroit Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Create wonderful vacation memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you enjoy a sunny afternoon sitting out on the dock watching the fall show of colors, the peacefulness of the snow falling while sipping a hot chocolate, or the excitement of boating or fishing, this place is for you. No matter what season it is, your friends and family will have a fun and relaxing time.

This 2 story 3 bedroom 2 bath home is just 25 feet from the sandy beach on a quiet bay of Cotton Lake. Because the house is on the bay, there will be no speeding boats or jet skis going by the dock. The first floor has knotty pine paneling throughout giving the home a nice cozy cabin feel. The master bedroom features a king size bed, TV, VCR and is on the first floor. There are 2 additional bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen size bed and the other with a queen and a double bed with a TV, VCR, and a playstation2. There is a full bathroom on each floor - both with bath/shower combos.

The kitchen is spacious with a table that can sit 6 and two additional seats at the breakfast bar. The kitchen is fully stocked and includes a toaster, coffee maker, and a blender. The living room has 46' flat screen TV with digital TV and DVD. From the French doors, you may walk out to the covered porch. The lake is only 25 feet away with a sandy beach, and a gentle sloping lake bottom. There is plenty of room in the yard for the kids to run around and play and room if they would like to pitch a tent to camp out in. The kids will also enjoy fishing from the dock.

Cotton Lake is the only lake that has an island with a lake in it. The island is public and can be explored in the daytime. The lake is 1783 acres in size with a concrete public access on the north east shore. You may launch your boat or pontoon and drive it over to our dock to use it during your stay. We have a boat lift at the dock for your use. You may also use the provided canoe or paddle boat to explore the lake. The Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge borders Cotton Lake on the north east shore. The refuge offers picnic areas, a visitor's center, and all sorts of activities. There is bird watching, hiking, fishing, cross country skiing, snow-shoeing, and hunting.

You may snowmobile right off the property and gain access to the Becker County trail system. Books, movies, board games, playstation 2 games, and some younger kid toys are also provided for use during your stay.

We are only 15 miles from the Soo Pass Ranch and Amphitheater where We Fest is held each summer, and 10.4 miles from Frazee where the Turkey Days Festival is celebrated each summer.

You can see additional photos of the home and the beach on our web page. You may find the link below.

This place has got it all

We had a great time. We booked the cottage late September / early October and the Fall colours at the time were stunning. Tamara was organized and professional. We brought our two young children and appreciated all of the toys and games available for them to use. It was nice to have a paddle boat and canoe to use too. The location on the lake was beautiful, sheltered and peaceful. Had a great time and want to return again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin on the bay the week of August 8. The cabin (house) was super clean, and very well furnished. My wife was amazed at the amount of dishes, flatware, baking dishes, and cooking utensils that were available. There was even a blender and electric waffle irons. We were a party of six, four adults and two boys ages 10 and 12. My grandsons fished and fished caught many sunfish off the dock. We all spent much time in the paddle boat and canoe, great fun. The bay is so sheltered even when it was windy, the bay was calm. Went to DL to a classic car show on the lake, ate at Zorba's. The owners were very helpful and responsive to our questions. All in all I would highly recommend staying at the cabin on the bay.

Summer family get together.

The bay area was great, even when it was windy out on the main lake the bay was quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the cabin, which was very clean and well organized. There was a small sandy area where we sat in our floaty toys and enjoyed the sun. Caught several small sunfish off the end of the dock(the trick is to put some bacon fat on the hook). We boated across the lake to a bar and grill for an afternoon snack. DL was a short drive away and so went into Zorba's one evening to enjoy the food and local atmosphere. Also, ate dinner one evening at 'The Bridge'. Kids and adults where jumping off the bridge into the lake. Made use of the detached garage area as a late night place to play cards and some games. There was a boom box there with speakers that played our tunes. That way whoever wanted to go to bed early could and the rest could stay up late. We were going to rent again next year, but we have additional family that will be staying with us so need a larger place.

Great Place to stay on a peaceful lake.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week the end of July. What a beautiful place. The bay is quiet and the water was like glass. The pictures on this post don't even capture how nice this place is. Wood throughout, a large living room, and you don't have to climb down a million stairs to get to the lake. We slept on the main floor in the Master Suite and the bed was so comfortable. The cabin was well stocked and is close enough to Detroit Lakes so you can eat out for dinner if you want. Renting was easy! I would definitely stay here again!

Guests From 9 to 90 Agree, Pretty Near Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We judge our stays at resorts, hotels, and the like by how much we hate to leave when our time is up. Well, we really, really, hated leaving the Bayfront Cabin on Cotton Lake. No kidding, everyone in our party loved the place and that included the 9, 13, 33, 33, 34, 56, 62, 71, and 90 year old. The weather was perfect and between the watercraft, bicycles, campfire, games, etc., everyone had plenty to enjoy. The birdwatching was fantastic. The bay is so protected we weren't at all concerned with letting the young ones buzz around in the paddleboat. The beds, furnishings, and electronics (wifi being one of our primary needs) were excellent. And all of us loved the well appointed kitchen. Cotton Lake is a really beautiful lake but one of the main attractions for us is the proximity to Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge and the Hubble Pond State Wildlife Management Area adjacent to the the lake. There weren't enough days in the week to walk all the trails within a 15 minute drive. All in all, this cabin is a lot of pleasure and pleasant memories for the money. We feel pretty qualified in making that recommendation because we owned our own wonderful little cabin on a beautiful Minnesota Lake for 17 years and we know of what we speak.
