CRAFTSMAN CHARACTER & EUROPEAN ANTIQUES IN THIS STUNNING LAKESIDE RETREAT!

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.

RECONNECT & RECHARGE AT THIS PRIVATE LAKESIDE RETREAT!

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!

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.

Dad and daughter trip

  • 4 of 5
Booked this house from Portland, Oregon having no knowledge of area. Although it was a bit hard to find at night. My complete lost driving skills got the attention of the local authorities. After being pulled over for stopping at every mile marker...the kind Hadley Sherriff gave me an escort to the place instead of a ticket! That doesn't happen in my neck of the woods, but this place is off the beaten path and has home style hospitality. The house and location did not disappoint one bit either. You get what you see in the pictures and a buckboard ride into town by the owner, if he's available. The home is full of charm, games and there is literally something for everyone. I took the canoe out across the lake and although the fish weren't keeper size. I managed to catch 2 bull heads and a perch on a spinner. I was surrounded by corn and soy beans in God's paradise with the chirping of grasshoppers. This was right where I wanted to spend my vacation time...it was as relaxing as it gets!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We used the house as a base to explore Laura Ingalls Wilder sites, but also had a fabulous time canoeing, playing board games, and just relaxing in this wonderful house. Clean, well-stocked, super comfortable, held all nine of us with no problem. I would absolutely recommend this delightful spot to anyone.Wish we'd had a week!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Summit Lake Lodge this past weekend. We had 10 adults in our group and there was plenty of room for everyone. The dining room table was big enough for all of us. We spent lots of time on the deck and enjoyed the big yard for playing bean bag game. We enjoyed a nice fire around the fire pit. Dale and Cindi were great to have as host and hostess not to mention Rudy the dog who is very friendly and will be missed. We enjoyed going into Slayton and shopping at The Hut and Second Wind. We also enjoyed the Painted Prairie Vineyard outside of Currie which was about a 30 minute drive. We are hoping to go back for a weekend this fall sometime to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home!

Wonderful two weeks

  • 5 of 5
We were a multi-generational family that found Summit Lake house just what we needed. There was plenty of space to spread out over 3 levels. We enjoyed the canoe, the wildlife, and the quiet location. Within an easy drive were the outstanding Brookings Children's' Museum, Lake Shetek, Jeffers Petroglyphs, and Currie's End of the Line train museum. We had supper with great onion rings in Dundee. All locations are kid-friendly. Dale and Cindi were wonderful neighbors and we enjoyed a horse and wagon ride and tour of Hadley. Since we stayed for two weeks, Stephanie gave us four hours of house-cleaning by Energizer-bunny Helen which made us all feel like we were indeed on vacation. We were 6 adults and 3 kids and created wonderful memories here. We are all cooks and we enjoyed the large kitchen and the outdoor table off the kitchen for breakfast and supper, You can find pretty much all you need in Slayton, a short 5 mile drive and the bakery is wonderful as is the Left Bank Café for coffee or lunch.

Just a short walk away, we offer a private, small, sandy beach to our guests that will give the kids great memories of swimming in the lake! Our property offers a unique, European bed and breakfast feel combined with Minnesota hospitality, the privacy of a home on the prairie, and a genuine escape from the busyness and stresses of normal life. Get away from it all at Summit Lake Lodge...and leave refreshed, re-energized and recharged!
