HISTORIC SWEDISH COTTAGE ON QUIET SOUTH LINDSTROM LAKE

Lindstrom Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-14)

ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT IN AUGUST DUE TO A CANCELLATION! CHECK OUR CALENDAR!

A one of a kind property on the National Historic Register of Homes. This Swedish cottage was originally built as a single story home in 1898. A meticulous restoration and addition of a full second story with Master Suite, 2 Bedrooms and an additional Sitting/Sleeping area was completed in 2001. The home was originally built as a single family residence and social gathering area for the early Swedish settlers. More recently, the home was visited by the King and Queen of Sweden during 'Karl Oscar Days,' the local festival that draws visitors from all over the state.

We are excited to share our private residence for the first time with others who appreciate architectural character and who are looking for more than just 'a week at the lake.' Don't get us wrong, you'll LOVE exploring all the pleasures of South Lindstrom Lake and the neighboring/connected Chisago Lake. Even in the busiest of seasons you'll find the lake extremely peaceful and unpopulated except for the many fisherman who come in search of trophy Bass and Northern Pike. We just think you'll enjoy your 'inside time' just as much in the comfort of the family room to watch a DVD or relaxing around the fireplace in the Great Room. Retire to your own private getaway in the Master Suite with the Whirlpool tub and sitting room with gas fireplace. With over 3800 square feet of living space, even the largest family or group can find privacy.

There is plenty to do in and around the tiny little town of Lindstrom. The city is known for its 'Coffee Pot' water tower and small shops and restaurants. Bring your own boat or rent one from Frankies Marina. Take a boat or walk to The Dinnerbel Restaurant just around the point and enjoy live music on the weekends. There are Paddle Boat rides on the St. Croix River in Taylors Falls, Outlet Malls in North Branch and water slides and skiing (in the winter) at Wild Mountain Resort. Or, just kick back and enjoy the sunsets from, what has been called, the best deck on the lake.

PLEASE NO REQUESTS TO HOLD WEDDINGS!

Jim and Caryn Casey purchased the home in 1999 and have spent summers there for the past 15 years. We split our time between Lindstrom and Southern California. As our children have grown we have less time to spend in Lindstrom and would like to share the home with other individuals or families who we hope will build as many wonderful memories there as we have.

Jim Casey purchased this cottage in 1999

We never intended to purchase the property as a rental, but as our lives have become more busy in Southern California we would rather share it with others when we are not able to be there. We fell in love with the area after living in the Twin Cities for years and wanting a retreat that was close enough to the cities, but far enough to feel like we were really getting away.

Peace and quiet best describes the setting. Although we have completely remodeled the interior with a new kitchen and bathrooms, we did our best to maintain the original character and floorplan of the house. Our carpenter, was a true craftsman and did an amazing job of recreating woodwork and trim to maintain the architectural integrity of the house. Most of the doors, windows and light fixtures on the main floor are original and if you look closely, you'll even see the 'flow' in the glass of the 115 year old windows!

Our golfing friends love the convenience of the public course a mere two minutes away. Rent a pontoon boat and enjoy evening cruises around the lakes. Fishing can be done off the dock or in many of the hot spots on the lake. We provide a 2-person Kayak for your added enjoyment.

My family enjoyed every minute of their stay...

  • Submitted: Dec 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We had a wonderful stay at the Fridhem and would highly recommend it to others looking for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. My family stayed over Thanksgiving and the house had mostly everything we needed to cook a traditional turkey dinner. The double ovens were a huge help and our turkey cooked in only two hours (after a two day prep and brine process)!

The owners of the house made themselves more than available if we needed them and they provided detailed instructions about all of the workings in the house.

My family enjoyed every minute of their stay and my husband and I (who live only 25 minutes away) plan to visit Lindstrom again. The town has such charm and the coffee shop was amazing. We look forward to staying again, perhaps when it is warmer, so we can enjoy the yard, lake and summertime activities. Thank you for everything!

3 Generations of the femaie members of one famiy (gathering after the loss of a patriarch)

Our gathering included members from all over MN and three from CO. this location was ideal; far enough for those living in MN to not have access to go home and yet not too far to drive. Our weather was absolutely stunning for November with beautiful fall colors, blue sky and mild temperatures. This home was within walking distance of all our needs; coffee shop, restaurant, groceries, tourist exploring and playgrounds. And within driving distances of great Art work, tours, and various activities. The home provided us with a comfortable environment for reminiscing, sharing, card playing and eating together. The rooms were ample for all. The floor plan/layout provided solitude when needed and exercise, as well. The home felt clean and spacious. We were all grateful to be together in a safe and lovely home. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating.
We would all return to this location and recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Trisha, we are so happy you chose Fridhem for your family event. We're glad you enjoyed your family time and your stay. Please come back again!

Sisters Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
The 8 Polish sisters get together every year in October. We like to find new locations each year that will accommodate that many women. We all loved the house. There was enough bedrooms and bathrooms to satisfy everyone.

The pictures reflect the actual beauty of the house. We had a cool, rainy weekend, but that didn't keep us from enjoying the stay. The kitchen has just about everything you could need for meal preparation. The fireplace provided the ambiance for our evening games and conversation.

We found plenty to do inspite of the rain. We shopped Linstrom and left some cash behind. We drove to Franconia Sculpture. That is such a fun experience!

I would highly recommend The Swedish Cottage for your family and/or friends gathering.

Owner's Response: Joyce,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We've been looking all around the house for the "cash you left behind," but can't seem to find it... ;)

Please come again!

The Perfect House for our Small Family Reunion...

  • Submitted: Aug 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We all loved our stay at Fridhem! This was the perfect house for our small family reunion (17 people for the party on a Sunday/8 people for the entire week) – we grilled out on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake while the kids played in the water and swam to the swimming deck to sun themselves. In the evening, we lit the fire pit on the beach and told stories and shared s’mores. Everyone had a wonderful time.

The kitchen was a blessing – well stocked and set up perfectly for several people to work on meals together and for serving a large buffet like we had at the reunion. We really appreciate the availability of cleaners, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. It is REALLY nice to be in a house where you do not have to go and purchase all the basics for the week. The house is very spacious and we really enjoyed a relaxing, laid back week with the family. I would definitely recommend this house to others.
