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. Don't be fooled, this house is HUGE! 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 also 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 a pontoon from Rose Hill Resort that is a quarter mile from the house. Take a boat or walk to The Dinnerbel Bar/Restaurant just around the point and enjoy dinner nightly and live music on the weekends. There are Paddle Boat rides on the St. Croix River in Taylors Falls 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.
Depending upon water levels, we have as much as 40 feet of beach (as of summer 2011) from the bottom of the steps to the edge of the water. You can start a bonfire on the beach or use the portable firepit on the deck overlooking the lake. We provide a dock, two-person kayak and swim raft for your water enjoyment. There's plenty of room to tie up two boats on the dock.
