SUMMER: 6 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, beautiful lakeshore with 2 docks

Family Compound ready for your family and friends to enjoy.

One short hour from the Twin Cities, our 'MAGICAL' lakeshore getaway on the Gold Coast of Clearwater Lake is the perfect year-around retreat, hidden in the trees on 100+ feet of beautiful sandy shoreline. This unique property is rented as a single unit. A retreat for the whole family and a haven for kids with separate spaces for everyone in a central carriage house, play house, garden shed,and cabin overlook the lake. There is also a one bedroom cabin for guests and another cabin available by special request. Wander through the trails in the woods and enjoy the lush landscaping that surrounds the property.

During the SUMMER, 6 bedrooms offer room for all your guests. 2 summer cabins are perfect for family gatherings. 7 night minimum stay during the SUMMER months, Friday at 6:00 PM to Friday noon.

During the WINTER, the 3 bedroom carriage house provides a cozy retreat for the whole family. The WINTER retreat is ideal for a family of 6. Winter sleeping includes one double bedroom, one queen bedroom, one twin bedroom plus two queen hide-a-beds and a unique king loft. Sleeping bags are welcome. Think Skiing! 2 night minimum stay during the WINTER months.

Enjoy privacy with a well maintained yard with gravel walkways and a private drive lined with mature trees. The property is private and is unseen from the road. A 'summer' hot tub with lake views and sunsets, overlooking the bonfire is outstanding.

At 3,000+ acres, Clearwater Lake is well known for excellent fishing, quiet bays, and the space to head out on the lake for the day and never see the same area twice. Back on the shore you have one of the nicest beaches around. This one of a kind rental is a blend of the present and the past, and is ready for you, your family and your friends to enjoy.

While enjoying the lake and the great great outdoors, you are less than 1 hour drive from the Twin Cities, Mall of America, Albertville Outlet Mall, St. Cloud and Antique Shops too many to mention.

About The Owner

Our family has enjoyed summers and winter weekends on the Gold Coast of Clearwater Lake for the past 32 years. Life at the lake is a true North-woods experience that has created life long bonds. It is now time to share our love of the lake, the sunsets, the walks in the woods, the night-time the bonfires, roasting marshmallows , listening to the loons, watching the eagles, napping in the hammock, reading books and just 'kicking back' with new families and their friends.

This property is ideal for multiple family reunions as it has three separate living cottages. The property will only be rented as a 'whole' to preserve the family atmosphere.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1982

Why The Owner chose Annandale

We chose to buy a vacation home close to the Twin Cities to accommodate our active lifestyle. The Gold Coast of Clearwater Lake quickly became home our three boys, their friends and our extended families across the US.. The property is located less than an hour from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul and provides quick access to major freeways and airports. At 3,000 acres, Clearwater is well known for the excellent fishing, quiet bays and the space to head out on the lake for the day and never see the same area twice. It has a beautiful beach, walking trails, family gathering areas and best of all provides the ultimate 'family experience'.

What makes this cottage unique

The greatest benefit on living at the lake is the family bonding that occurs naturally between children of all ages, their parents, their grandparents, their great-great grandparents, their aunts & uncles, their cousins and their friends. The lake place provides a retreat for the whole family where each person can grow and thrive. A great benefit of driving North to the lake is the family time spent in the car singing songs and discussing the previous weeks activities. The lake is where our family has lived, laughed, cried and learned away from the hectic pace of the big city. Lake memories are treasured memories.!

Great Up North Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Driving down the long driveway through the tall cedar/pine trees toward the 'compound' you know you are about to experience something special...and we did! Spent a week at this wonderful 'resort', which has a spot for everyone to sleep and play. The view is incredible. The beach is wide and perfect for any age to play and swim, then reward yourself with some quiet time in the hot tub overlooking beautiful Clearwater Lake. A true 'up north' experience.... the way it was meant to be.

Perfect summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 4 generations and this year we had ages 8 moths to 83 years old. This is a perfect place for a large groupo stay without having to be on top of each other. There is plenty of space if you need some quiet time. The owner of this property couldn't be a better hostess we all felt we were a part of her family. If you are looking for a place to just kick back, fish, swim, roast marshmallows, and laugh this is the place for you.
