NORTHWOODS CABIN ON LONG LAKE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS & GREAT SWIMMING

Park Rapids Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3BR/2BA Cabin on Long Lake

This completely renovated, year-round lake home sleeps up to 10. A fieldstone fireplace, vaulted ceiling & three season porch combine rustic charm with the comforts of home. The cabin sits on a high bank, & it's 50 steps down to our dock.

Long Lake is one of the area's finest walleye, bass & trout lakes. It's 9 miles of crystal clear, deep, spring fed water, making for great swimming too. It's 6' deep at the end of our dock. Our beach is hard sand, with a gradually sloping lake bottom. There is no dry sand beach, but an 8x12 sun deck for lounging.

Rent our 24' newly renovated Weere's pontoon or sea kayaks for the week or bring your own boat & moor it to our dock.

Fully stocked kitchen with all the essentials, plus a second full-size fridge & a fresh herb garden.

Main floor master bedroom has 1 Queen. Upstairs loft has 2 open bedrooms, with 1 Queen & 2 Doubles, plus a half bath.

Enjoy long views of Long Lake from adirondack chairs on the deck, watch hummingbirds feed while napping in the hammock, swim off the dock in crystal clear water, walk along the sandy, sloping beach, sip wine at sunset on the patio, gather around the campfire with the cabin guitar, sleep like babies under Northern stars.

No smoking. No pets.

In 1999, Bachelor Todd bought this very rustic cabin. It was close to his family & hometown of Detroit Lakes. With a lot of help from friends, he gutted and rebuilt the entire thing, including adding on all the decks and the three season porch. He even built the dock, (which Jen made him replace in 2012 with something 'more modern.') Todd married Jen in 2008 and in typical lady-wife fashion, she immediately took over making additions of her own, starting with imperatives like kitchen knives that cut & sheets with threadcounts over 7. In 2011, Jen took over the rental portion of the cabin business, but Todd is still is still around to fix stuff.

The couple currently resides in Minneapolis, where Todd is a family physician & Jen is a hematology oncology consultant & part-time grad student at St. Thomas. The couple spends as little time inside as possible when not working & can be found cycling, running, skiing, swimming, hunting, grilling and camping in their 1973 VW Bus.

The Jorgensons hope you love the cabin as much as they do!

Todd & Jennifer Jorgenson purchased this cabin in 1999

It has everything you need for a family vacation or a romantic get away. Close enough to town to run for groceries, yet remote enough to feel like a true get-away.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with the cabin. It had many extra touches that made it feel very home like - not a rental feel at all. Making arrangements with Jennifer was always pleasant and professional. We would rent this cabin again. Great location. We also rented the pontoon so we were all able to be on the lake together. There were five adults and a one year old child on this vacation. We made some great memories.

Fun times at the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time on our vacation at this cabin. It was just as the pictures show. Clean and everything that we needed or forgot to bring was there. The weather was great and the lake is so clear. There is a great breeze that blows through the cabin so we never even needed a fan. Close to enough to town but you still feel secluded. We will definitely be coming back!

EXTREMELY DIRTY CONDITIONS, OWNERS DIDN'T CARE

EXTREMELY DIRTY CONDITIONS, OWNERS DIDN'T CARE

We arrived only to find the cabin dusty and full of cobwebs. We also rented their pontoon for the week which was delivered at 4:00 PM and extremely filthy. We went to go on a ride and the pontoon stalled and quit in 500 ft, we had to get a tow in. After emailing the owners, they sent over a "buddy" who told us it looked like we already know more then him. We had to figure out that the hose and connection from the gas tank was broken. We should this neighbor and he agreed. We also confirmed that the tanks we filled was the correct gas. We had to purchase our own part, install it and we finally had a pontoon. The owners when brought to their attention we had to fix their pontoon and spend our money, told us we had the incorrect gas in it. Funny, but the gas in it when it stalled was the gas from the "caretakers" we never used our gas yet! The area was beautiful and the fishing was great. Find someone else to rent from is my suggestion.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed to earn this unfavorable review. We take great pride in our cabin and try to exceed each guests expectations. Our goal is to help families make wonderful memories while vacationing in on our home on Long Lake.

Unfortunately, this did not happen with these guests. Fortunately, this is the exception to the rule. Ours is a non-smoking cabin. The guests who left this review violated this policy, and received half of their damage deposit back.

Heaven on Earth !!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect cabin for a family vacation. The lake is big and clean, perfect for swimming ,fishing and using the pontoon. The cabin is very nice inside, clean and has lots of room. The kitchen has everything you could need for cooking and room to do it. The yard is large with chaise lounges , hammock and a fire pit as well as a deck overlooking the lake. The owners are attentive and really seem to care about your experience there. I can't say enough about this wonderful place. I wouldn't change a thing !!
