Overview

Howard Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This recently updated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Pulaski in Buffalo, Minnesota. With accommodations for six, this house is perfect for anything from a girl's/guy's weekend to a couple's retreat.

The newly remodeled main floor has a fully equip kitchen, including dishes, cookware, and utensils. The beautiful granite countertops give you plenty of room to prepare meals while the dishwasher makes cleanup easy at the end of the day. The counter area and the dining table each have seating for four, perfect for a meal, a round of drinks, or a game of cards. The living room has plenty of seating options to lounge in, with a couch and three chairs, or enjoy a cup of coffee by the patio door to take in the heavenly view of the lake. Better yet, have a glass of wine in the hot tub, located 3 steps outside the patio door! The patio also has a grill and patio table, great for those tropical Minnesota days :)

Upstairs you will find a spacious master bedroom and bath suite complete with king size bed and solid wood furnishings. Two guest rooms leave space for four more friends, with a queen and two twin beds. A 3/4 bath with double sink is shared between the two guest rooms.

The city of Buffalo is a friendly community located about 40 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. Home to numerous lakes, parks, antique stores, and other recreational activities, Buffalo is a wonderful place to enjoy a day trip or weekend getaway. If golfing is a past time, tee off at Wild Marsh (18-hole) or Buffalo Heights (9-hole) golf courses or practice your swing at the driving range. Pick apples at Deer Lake Orchard or taste a local glass of wine at Buffalo Rock Winery. Shop at the local stores, go antiquing in downtown Buffalo, or make the mere 20 minute drive to Albertville Outlet Mall for the latest trends. Eat some of the best pizza around at Norm's Wayside or try some delicious Mexican food at Rancho Grande. For restaurant staples, slide over to Perkins or Applebee's or grab something quick at one of the numerous fast food stops around town. Need more entertainment? Watch a movie at Buffalo Cinema or go bowling at Huikko's bowling alley.

Buffalo and Pulaski are the two main lakes. While the house is already located on the best lake in town ;) you might want to explore other lakes nearby. Buffalo Lake is located in downtown Buffalo and offers pontoon and canoe rentals. If you'd prefer to stay on Pulaski to enjoy your water activities and have a boat you would like to bring with you on your stay, feel free to tie the boat to the dock during the day. Pulaski is perfect for skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, paddleboarding, and numerous other recreational activities. Or for the fisherman of the group, simply bring a rod and reel and fish right off the dock, no boat required. You might be surprised at the fish you bring in! And don't forget, the hot tub on the deck is a great place to relax and unwind after a day of golf, tennis, hiking, biking or water activities.

About The Owner

My husband and I love the water and have lived on this lake together for many years. I grew up on the lake and watched the community grow and evolve over the years. The location is great because you have the lake with all the activities yet are close enough to downtown Minneapolis to make the commute every day to work ... which I do! We love to waterski, pontoon, go walking and biking. We can enjoy the theatre downtown and get to the various shopping areas in an hours time - depending upon where we want to go. Great fun! The rental property is right next door to us so if you have any questions on things to do in the neighborhood - just ask.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Howard Lake

The house was my parents home so after they passed away we updated it with the idea that we would some day do vacation rentals with it. It gives us the flexibility for when family and friends come to stay for a weekend or a week. When not in use - we love sharing the home with others who want to enjoy the benefits of spending time at the lake yet still being able to enjoy some shopping, golfing, dining and any other activity you might think of all within an hour of the house. Just depends on what you are looking for in your vacation time.

What makes this house unique

When you plan a vacation in Minnesota you always have the chance that the weather might not be exactly what you are looking for ... maybe rain, maybe snow. As much as we would like to guarantee great weather, we just can't. We can say that we are close enough to indoor activities if you want to get away from the lake that you can do so with ease and turn around and head home if the weather improves. I love the flexibility this location offers.

Great girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend and had a great time. 6 great friends that graduated high school together and 30 years later are still finding fun things to do. The house is very clean and comfortable. Kathryn the owner lives next door if you need her, is very nice and other than introducing herself left us to ourselves.

We had a great time shopping at the occasional stores in buffalo and had some drinks at norms wayside on 55. Also there was a recommendation in the house folder for the River Inn. We went for lunch and the food and ambiance were fantastic.

I highly recommend this house for a short or long get away.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was awesome! It was clean, roomy and very well decorated. And the hot tub was wonderful even on a cold, windy day in January. Everything we needed was in this home and more! The owners were very friendly and helpful and we would most definitely recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. I wish we could have pulled schedules together to at least grab some dinner one night, but maybe next time?! Hope to see you both in the future. Kathryn

Fun Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our "Ladies Night" group has been getting together since 1978, but we haven't gotten away for a weekend for many years. We were fortunate this gorgeous house on beautiful Lake Pulaski was available and we had a great time. The house is beautifully decorated, had everything needed for cooking in and had many touches that made it feel like a home. Although the weather didn't fully cooperate, we still enjoyed beautiful lake views and even a "short" but pretty sunset. We were even able to sneak out and enjoy drinks out on the deck between showers. The owners are gracious and extremely accommodating. Our group talked about coming back again in warmer weather. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Get Away for G- Girls

  • 5 of 5

Once a year 5 of us girlfriends take a long weekend and we had the most wonderful time at this most beautiful home of Kathryn and her husband. The home is more than anyone could ask for !!! The home is all furnished with anything you may need - the deck and the dock were a perfect place to sit and throw back a cold one- and enjoy the loons, and water skiers.

We would use this VBRO again , the shopping in Buffalo is really sweet if you enjoy antiquing and the small little shops. The home is very secure ( it is a inside joke with Kathryn)

We really want to say thank you again for the great time at your vacation home!!!!

Great vacation memories

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a terrific girls' fall weekend getaway at this property. The home was immaculate

and had many lovely features.......home is situated right on the lake, great outdoor seating for

morning coffee and evening cocktails, spacious outdoor hot tub, well equipped open kitchen, and

plenty of things to do and see in the area. We would revisit if the opportunity arises.
