Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck, while you relax and unwind in a wooded setting just steps away from the lake. You'll enjoy getting back to nature with Eagles, Falcons, Beaver, Deer and other wildlife in this quiet community by Broadwater Bay. This was our very first Cabin and we still love it. We have many fond memories of the 8 years we spent there. As our kids got older, we needed more space and now own a home on Girl Lake. It's an inexpensive way to spend a week or two up north. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of the wilderness, but you are close enough to town to get some milk or throw some laundry in (there is a nice laundermat in Longville). There are two docks available that are shared with the two neighbors either side. The docks are long and the water is about 8-10 feet deep at the end. Great for younger kids catching sunnies, perch, rock bass and even northerns. Great for taking a running leap into the water too! We do have a pontoon boat available for rent.
Simon is a Minneapolis School Teacher. Lynne and Simon both direct and run their own Soccer Coaching Company. Lynne does the admin., Simon does the coaching! We have 16 year olds Twins - a boy and a girl. We have a dog and three cats. Our dog loves it up north and we dont actually leash him up there - dogs just tend to wander around.
Lynne's parents have a place on Blackwater Lake not far away. That is how we discovered the area and began coming to Longville as a family. After renting a couple of times we decided that we needed a place of our own.
The Quiet!! No phones ringing off the hook and lots of nature sounds. When you go for a walk you always see something different. Closeness to the Lake is great - the serenity of bobber or lindy rigging in the quiet evening sunsets....You will enjoy all the comforts of home. You can boat to town for dinner, or hit the local ice cream shop after a day on the lake.
