Overview

Remer House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms; sleeps 6, maximum 8.

Pauls’ Guesthouse is a fully-renovated & newly furnished 1980’s split level home situated on pristine Big Bass Lake, located approximately six miles north of Outing, MN in southeastern Cass County (approximately 150 miles or three hours north of the Twin Cities). Bass Lake is a stunning mid-sized lake, with amazing 20-foot water clarity; it consists of three main bays with virtually all shoreline being fully natural with mature white and red pines reaching down to water’s edge. The lake has public access & is perfect for pontooning & fishing. The Guesthouse sits on 2.5 acres and is located across the mid-section of the lake’s main peninsula; it is a private setting with no sightlines to surrounding cabins. The location is ideal – the Guesthouse is situated in Land O’ Lakes State Forest with immediate access to snowmobile trails in the winter & ATV trails during the remainder of the year.

Accommodations: The trail system offers routes to bars and restaurants in nearby towns including Emily, Outing, Remer and Longville.

The Guesthouse comfortably sleeps six to eight people. It has three bedrooms and a large bathroom with walk-in shower on the upper level. Two bedrooms have queen-sized beds and the third has two twin beds; all are nicely appointed. The lower level consists of the kitchen, living room (with queen-sized sofa sleeper), dining room, laundry facility, half bath, and there is access to the attached garage. The Guesthouse was completely renovated in 2011 and all appliances and furnishings are new. This is a non-smoking facility. Pets will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Ammenities: Amenities include a gas-fired potbellied stove in the living room, central air conditioning, dual hot water tanks, phone, wireless Internet, flat-screened TV with a full range of cable and local channels, screened porch with picnic table, propane BBQ grill, fire pit with lounge chairs, and a 16’ dock. The Guesthouse kitchen is fully furnished for all of your cooking needs.

Fire pit, free firewood (local), dock, nearby boat or pontoon rental with delivery, surrounded by Land O' Lakes State Forest with access to ATV and snowmobile trails, large bathroom with walk-in shower, cabin fully renovated in 2011, newly furnished in 2011, completely private with no sightlines to other cabins, located on peninsula with water on two sides, quiet non-party lake, lake has 20-foot water clarity, great fishing, no invasive species.

Attractions: For your convenience, the local marina (Land O’ Lakes Marine in Outing) rents pontoons, fishing boats and speed boats. Rentals range from daily to weekly and they’ll deliver the boat to the dock prior to your arrival. Also, there are several favorite local restaurants to sample: The Village Inn in Outing (great full menu), The Deer Haven Supper Club (great for walleye and ribs), and The Anchorage Inn on Lake Inguadona (great for homemade pizza). Shop the shops and boutiques in nearly Longville, Emily, Crosby, Crosslake, Pequot Lakes and Nisswa; all are located within an hour of the Guesthouse.

About Paul Kirkman

Paul & I are full-time residents in the adjacent property. I own Itasca Leathergoods, a leather company that manufactures handcrafted moccasins, handbags, belts, and other assorted leather goods. Our manufacturing facility is nearby and we operate a retail store in nearby Crosslake MN, among others. Paul V is an IT director of a small software development company and works remotely from home.

Paul Kirkman purchased this house in 2006

Why Paul Kirkman chose Remer

We're really excited to offer this Guesthouse for rent. Originally we remodeled the property (originally built as a caretaker's residence for the main cabin) to use as overflow housing when entertaining family and friends. Upon completion we realized that we could rent it out when it wasn't in use for our own guests.

The home is spotless, has NO musty smell, and is a thoroughly modern facility.

We're adjacent to snowmobile trails, ATV trails, and near cross country ski trails and reasonably close to the Cuyuna Range mountain bike trails in Crosby/Ironton. The Guesthouse is also a great base camp for hunting (grouse, turkey, deer) and the fishing in Bass Lake can be spectacular.

What makes this house unique

The Guesthouse has a propane-fueled potbelly stove, central air conditioning, a screened in porch (perfect for outdoor dining), a huge fire pit, and a dock in the water in the summertime. It's clean, doesn't have the typical musty smell of a cabin, and we're dog friendly.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful two days in this quiet, secluded home! The beds are so very comfortable and the kitchen is better equipped than my home. To my husbands' dismay, I fell in love with the colors that were chosen for the bedrooms and he now has a honey-do list a mile long! The owners were the epitome of gracious hosts. Paul and Paul should run workshops on how to operate a VRBO. We shall return!

Paul’s Guesthouse exceeded our expectations. The guesthouse is on a peninsula, so it’s nice and secluded. The home was very clean and cozy, with beautiful tile and wood work. Having the “social” area on one floor and the bedrooms upstairs worked out wonderfully for our family. They amenities were wonderful and appreciated, such as the coffee grinder, coffee pot, pans, etc. The backyard is a great area for yard games and bonfires, which they have set up with colorful chairs. We were able to get out in our kayaks to the sandbar not very far away. It was a fun area to socialize with the other lake dwellers, and they all had fabulous things to say about Paul and Paul. Obviously, they are very well liked on the lake. The only bummer was that Land O'Lakes Marina only does a three day rental with the pontoon boats now. We would definitely choose to stay here again and hopefully will for a week next summer. I would recommend Paul’s Guesthouse to anyone (even though for selfish reasons, don’t want it to be booked up ;). Thanks Paul and Paul!

The listing is accurate but the photo's don't do it justice! The guesthouse is beautifully decorated, the photo's of the bedrooms are before the lamps and pictures were added. The beds and linens are top notch - so comfortable you don't feel guilty laying in bed a little longer.

There is a full kitchen which makes it easy to prepare and serve meals. There is a full set of Fiesta Ware, including serving bowls and plenty of silverware. This is very nice as everything goes in the dishwasher.

We rented a pontoon boat for the day which was wonderful, we spent an afternoon on the sandbar eating lunch and enjoying the sunshine. We had dinner at Deer Haven and recommend the walleye dinner! We also stopped in Outing at a place right on the lake as you get into town; friendly staff and great looking pizza's.

The property is clean and we were even supplied firewood. The owners are wonderful gracious hosts with the intent on you having a great stay. Mission accomplished.

Wow, this place is great!

  • 5 of 5

Shhhh, don't tell everyone you know about how GREAT this place is cause they'll get too booked up and we won't ever be able to get a reservation again. Really, the place is beautiful and clean with all the things you need for a wonderful vacation. Comfy beds and furniture; the list goes on. So private and on the lake too. We got on ATV trails from the guesthouse, which was a plus for us. Owners are great too!!!

Summer Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Last summer, I wanted to spend time with my 3 children and granddaughter away from reality. My youngest had just graduated from high school and I wanted a family vacation! We had not been on vacation together for several years. Pauls’ guesthouse provided the perfect setting for us to get away and relax. It far exceeded our expectations! We were expecting a cabin but got a house that was furnished exactly as I would like to furnish our own home – right down to the dishes! Our hosts provided everything we needed and a few things we forgot. The area around the guest house was picture perfect which my daughter took advantage of in photographs. We had a great time boating, hiking, and just relaxing around the campfire. Words and photos cannot capture the charm of the house or the beauty of the area.

I would recommend Pauls’ guesthouse to anyone who wants to spend time enjoying nature with all the comforts of home. It is perfect for all ages – from grandmas to 4 year old granddaughters.

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I gathered this past weekend to meet up with our other sibling who lives on the same lake. We were celebrating our family holiday gathering and a birthday. From the moment we entered the stone gate we were in awe of the grandure and meticulous attention to detail of this outwardly quaint cabin. I need to add that I use the word "cabin" loosley. The entire home is reminiscent of a Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware catalog layout. Praise and adoration to the owner/designer for the decorum and fine appointments in every room, closet and cupboard. I am very particular about cleanliness, bedding and the furnished items such as dishes, appliances, etc... EVERYTHING in this home far exceeds the quality of my expectations. The firepit and chairs are delightful and the views are lovely. You will love this property!
