Sioux Falls House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Craftsman on a Rural Lake, Upscaled with European Antiques!

Summit Lake Lodge is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3100 square foot home located on Summit Lake in Hadley, MN, with 125' of shoreline. The house sleeps 10 (with a max. of 12 to allow for infants & small children)

This 1930's Craftsman is filled with European antiques to offer you a getaway like no other. The home offers a full-service kitchen, television with DirectTV and DVD player, on-site laundry, fresh linens and towels, and a game room complete with board games and table soccer. We offer a canoe and life jackets free of charge for our guests, as well as two additional canoes, a pedal boat and a row boat available for daily rentals, a boat dock to fish from, and a fire pit with firewood available for purchase. We'd love to have you and your companions enjoy a ladies getaway, scrapbooking or quilting retreat, family reunion or vacation getaway here!

Summit Lake Lodge features appealing landscaping with a bench along the shore to watch and listen to the wildlife, let the children play and swim along the shoreline, pet the horses in the pasture or sit out on the deck enjoying the quiet and peacefulness of rural Minnesota. Fishermen will find a variety of fish including bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish, crappie and largemouth bass here.


Guests will have the opportunity to spread out in this large home and have the freedom to explore around this quiet, family-friendly lake. With a large, fully-equipped kitchen, you can prepare your meals as you like as you spend your day enjoying your friends and family. Come to Summit Lake Lodge to recharge and renew your spirit. You won't be sorry!

Slayton is only 5 miles away and has much to offer for all ages and interests. Step back in time in the historic Dinehart/Holt House and the Murray County Historical Museum (my favorite time to see it is when they have it all decked out for a haunted Halloween). Pick apples at the apple orchard north of Slayton, splash in the zero entry pool or zip down the giant water slide at Slaytona Beach West in the summer, and enjoy one of the several parks anytime of the year. With a bustling downtown, Slayton offers a wide variety of shops. Stop by the local bakery early so that you don't miss out on their fabulous glazed yeast donuts, then head over to Left Bank Cafe for fresh roasted coffee. Now that you have fuel for shopping, you'll have to decide whether you'd like to pick up something unique and flashy at One Stop Diva Shop or admire the beautiful home decor items at The Hut. If you're looking to update your wardrobe, you won't want to miss a stop at Geyerman's. My personal favorite store in Slayton is Second Wind Antiques & More, which has a wide array of bargains and a continually changing inventory. After you've worked up an appetite, you will have a number of restaurants to choose from including Pizza Ranch, Subway, Hub Drive Inn, Left Bank Cafe, or The Grain Exchange. Pizza Ranch will deliver to Summit Lake Lodge as well, or you can take subs back to enjoy on the deck.

A stay at Summit Lake Lodge will provide you a private lakeside getaway just off Hwy. 30 between Lake Wilson and Slayton. For reference, Pipestone is 23 miles to the west, Marshall Is 38 miles to the north, and Worthington is 35 miles to the south, and it is 74 miles from Sioux Falls, SD. The renowned Wilder Pageant in Walnut Grove, MN, is a quick 35 miles away, and on the way is the Wheels Across the Prairie Museum in Tracy, MN. For some family-friendly hiking, playgrounds, a lookout tower and a historic cabin, spend the day exploring 700 acre Garvin County Park, which is north of Slayton on Hwy 59.

About Stephanie Korver

Kyle and I grew up in the area, married just out of high school and attended college together at South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD. Kyle commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Air Force in 1997 and we have been stationed in Oklahoma, Alaska, North Dakota, Belgium, Kansas and Germany. In fall 2010, the kids and I moved to this home in SW MN to be near my parents while Kyle deployed to Qatar for 16 months. This home now houses our antiques that we acquired from our overseas travels, provides us a vacation home while we continue our Air Force adventure, and is our long-term 'forever home' which we plan to move back to when Kyle's Air Force career has reached its end.

Stephanie Korver purchased this house in 2010

Why Stephanie Korver chose Sioux Falls

Kyle and I wanted a home in SW MN, near family, that would provide the kids and I a retreat while he served our country during a 16-month deployment. We love antiques, homes with Craftsman character, and the serenity of rural lake life, and this home fit our family perfectly. It just so happened that my parents had done much of the work years earlier when my dad purchased pasture land surrounding Summit Lake in Hadley, MN, as an anniversary gift for my mother in 1997. Over the years, they developed the property, parceling out large lots and selling them to the public. They moved their 1936 Craftsman home from nearby Iona, MN, in 2002, placing it on a full basement, attaching a 3+ garage and remodeling the kitchen. My parents agreed to sell the home to us in 2010, and it allowed them to downsize to a smaller home across the road. We look forward to being able to spend more time there in the future with the incredible views, relaxing lake activities, and the calm of nature. Summit Lake Lodge symbolizes family, togetherness, and the simplicity of rural lake life and holds a very dear place in our hearts.

What makes this house unique

This home is a true gem because it is wonderfully decorated in European antiques and treasures picked up in Belgium, France, and Germany. It has Craftsman character, oak floors, and a view of the lake that is sure to lower anyone's blood pressure. Summit Lake Lodge is a perfect mix of high class design and relaxed livability. Even with all of our world travels, rural Summit Lake in SW MN is truly our favorite place to be!

Great family gathering place

  • 5 of 5

The house worked perfectly for having our children and grandchildren in one locations when we were in the area for our niece's wedding. Beautiful rural setting with a lake in the backyard. The house met and exceeded our needs. Will definitely stay again if the need to be in that area again beats staying in a hotel any day!

Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Girls Weekend at the Summit Lake cabin! The cabin was very clean, welcoming, and well equipped with everything we needed - we just had to bring our overnight bags! The kitchen was well stocked with pans, pots, plates, etc and plenty of towels and linens were provided. There were a few board/card games as well for us to enjoy in the evenings. Unfortunately, it was too windy to have a bonfire but it would have been a wonderful spot for one! We visited the apple orchard in Slayton and had a great time picking apples. I would recommend this cabin to family and friends!

Sister Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place! We spent 3 relaxing days on the lake & in the beautiful spacious home, and can't wait to find another weekend to go back! There was something to do for every age group, the older kids played in the large family room in the basement & the little ones loved the cozy alcove upstairs. The kids played outside for hours, between the jungle gym at the campground, the horses, the canoe, Rudy :) & a campfire, there were lots of tired little people at the end of the day! The rest of us just enjoyed the ability to sit around the large dining room table & visit all weekend! We ended up with more people than beds, so part of our group rented rooms at the Linden Ave. B&B which was only 4 miles away. This was a perfect arrangement for the people who wanted to go to bed early, yet we were all able to be at the Lodge during the day together & never felt crowded! There were enough places to hang out from the two decks & living & family rooms & dining room/kitchen that two or three people could sit and visit together if they wanted without all the commotion that a large group can be in a smaller space. I would recommend this for families of all ages, we had kids from 4 mos. to 12 years old and no one once said they were bored. It was just the best! We can't wait to get back! Thank you!

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during the short weekend we had to enjoy this property. The house was well cared for and had every amenity we needed (including plenty of toys to keep the kids busy). The setting was peaceful and the lake very scenic. It was quite windy the full day we had there so we didn't get the chance to really utilize the boats but hopefully we'll get another chance someday. Would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet place to relax for a few days.

Beautiful place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, out of the way place for seven adults and three children (ages 2-½, 5 and 10) from Big Cities (Washington DC, Oakland CA, Hong Kong and Des Moines, IA), and we were delighted with what we found. The lake and surrounding rolling country-side were spectacular and serene, and the weather was pleasant. We were fearing that there would be mosquitos, but the breeze probably swept them away; no one had a single bite the whole week. The dog, Rudy, was gentle and affectionate with our little one, and we appreciated the manager bringing a child's "jeep" for the kids to "drive" around the yard. The adults and kids enjoyed many canoe trips out on the lake. We enjoyed touring the 19th-century historic town of Curie with the end-of-the-line railroad buildings and the the Pipestone National Monument where American Indians used to quarry the soft red stone for for carving peace pipes and other decorative items. We even spent a day at the county fair in nearby Slayton. I would suggest that brochures of local points of interest be placed in the home to help people plan their activities. Our one disappointment was that the sandy "swimming beach" was rather small and concealed in the tall grass near the water, and too far away for the little kids to walk conveniently. Nevertheless, we all had a wonderful, memorable time together.

Wonderful, quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well furnished house with lots of space. We had 6 adults and 4 children and were very comfortable. It was very clean and well stocked.

There were fun nooks and crannies to explore and lots of toys and games for the kids. The lake was pretty and fun to explore with the canoe. Fishing wasn't great but still peaceful. The area is very quiet but the next town over, Slayton, has a couple good restaurants and a very nice public pool with water slides and splash pad. There is a small grocery store there, as well as 2 parks and it's only 5 miles down the road.

The owners of the property are very friendly and easy to work with. We would love to come visit this area again and would definitely stay here again.

Murray County also hosts a looped portion of the Casey Jones Bike Trail near Currie. Heading north on the bike trail from End-O-Line Railroad Park and Museum you observe farm crops up close, tall corn, soybeans thick with pods and new mown alfalfa perfumes the air. Then Lake Shetek named by the Dakota (means Lake Pelican) meanders north around the headwaters of the Des Moines River at the Currie Dam.

Rest spots, scenic overlooks, the Shetek Monument, Smith Lake, wildflowers, birds and animals enhance the bike trail and when you return to End-O-Line Park, a tour and indoor/outdoor fun for the whole family can be enjoyed. The bike trail is approximately six miles of hard surface, easy-rolling hills.
