We can provide that with a 2 bedroom cottage 10 feet from the shores of Big Sand Lake, Park Rapids, Minnesota.

Fantastic swimming off the end of the dock. The cabin is a rustic two bedroom with a large screen porch. There are 2 double beds and a fold out futon in the living area. Beautiful setting among towering white and red pines, right on the water, with a fabulous fire pit overlooking a natural rocky shoreline. This cabin faces west for the best sunset views in Hubbard County. The cabin is not handicap accessible. There are no phones, television or wifi. 35 stone steps down to cabin and waters edge. The owners cabin is right next door, and may be available if you need more room.

Hi, we're the Emersons, Jim, Shari and Kaelan. Jim is from Iowa and began vacationing on Big Sand Lake when he was six years old. His love for the lake is still going strong over 40 years later. Shari is from Park Rapids and we met for the first time at the cabins, and ultimately got married there. Kaelan came along eleven years ago and loves fishing, swimming, frog hunting, and anything else that a kid might enjoy at the lake. We hope you will enjoy staying at the cabin as much as we do!
My family has been vacationing on Big Sand Lake since the early sixties and when the opportunity came up to buy these special cabins at Coolridge, I couldn't resist. It is the perfect spot to get away and now that I have my own son to spend time here, it has just come full circle.
Incredible sunsets. The call of the Loons. Fabulous fishing. Night time fires lakeside.
