Overview

Detroit Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

Picture this. It’s a cool summer evening and you're lying on a soft blanket which has been spread so carefully on a lawn that gently slopes to a sandy beach, which continues onto the shoreline of Toad Lake. As you gaze upward to the evening sky, you take in the gentle glow of the moon as you play a game of connect the dots with the stars. As you breathe in the smells of the night the methodical lapping of the waves on the shoreline slowly and gently lull you to sleep. You smile as you hear the startled shriek of a child startled by a bug and cover your head as children taunt you with a frog. Then, just as quickly they disappear to engage in a game of hide and go seek. With your fingers wrapped around your coffee cup, you take a sip and watch the lights of boat coming in from its evening outing. You laugh as you hear the nonstop chatter of a child who undoubtedly caught his or her biggest, if not first fish. As you rise from your resting place you suddenly get a sense of peace realizing that you haven't enjoyed yourself this much in so many years.

That's what summer is like at this Lake Home cleverly hidden off Highway 34. Toad Lake offers over 1700 acres of fishing, swimming, and boating fun! Whether you’re enjoying the wide open space on the lake, golfing at an area course, hiking the trails at Smoky Hills, shopping or dining at the numerous restaurants and shops; you’ll see why people keep coming back to Toad Lake. This air conditioned, lake home which sleeps 6 to 8 people comfortably, has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and has been completely remodeled. The inside features a spacious living room with Direct TV, a kitchen with the latest appliances, a breakfast bar, dining room and wood burning fireplace. Fully furnished with all linens, pillows, towels, dishes, etc., each room has a ceiling fan as well.

The outside offers a patio with lawn furniture, 2 grills – gas and charcoal, plus a dock system ready for your boat or pontoon.

The lake home is available on a weekly, monthly, or seasonal basis. Owner may entertain a year lease.

quiet, comfy, hospitality with awesome fishing!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five had a great time staying at this property. The house was very comfortable. It had everything we needed. Wayne was very hospitable and available when we needed him but scarce otherwise. We rented a pontoon boat as well and had a blast fishing: walleye, northern pike, sunnies, bass, crappie... If you love to fishing you should try this lake. And if you like a small sandy beach, plush grass, beautiful sunsets out the living room window, and a low traffic area, this is the place for you!

Family from the Cities

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from spending time at this lake home. First let me say that Wayne, the owner, was very friendly and thorough. He met us there when we arrived and walked us through the necessary steps about how things work. He was very kind. The cabin is small, but perfect for our family of three. It was pretty clean when we arrived. The space was well organized and had a beautiful view of the lake. The kitchen was well stocked..I didn't even need to use some of the supplies I had brought such a dish soap and paper towel. The living area had plenty of furniture and there is one main wall air conditioner in this room. There were ceiling fans in all the rooms, so that was a plus. If it is really hot, I feel the small air conditioner would not be enough to cool down the whole cabin. My main concern with this cabin was the beds and the bedding. My thoughts are that if I am going to go on a vacation for one week...I need sheets and bedding that are not old and pilly. Also the beds need to be comfortable and inviting. The beds in this cabin were neither of these things. They have a set of bunk beds in each bedroom. These worked out okay for our child, but not so much for us. The beds were thin and squeaky and the linens looked like they were picked up at a garage sale. Now, I am not a sheet snob, but these were horrible. I had to dig around in the pile of sheets to find something that I could use. Thank goodness I brought my own blankets and pillows. Now all that being said, if the bed situation would change I would GLADLY and HAPPILY return to this cabin!

A great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. It is very clean and comfortable just as the pictures indicate. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need for preparing and serving meals. Wayne was very accommodating, a great guy to deal with. Some nearby attractions we enjoyed were biking on the lake road, pontooning and fishing, going to Itasca State Park, biking to Dorset from Park Rapids, and mini golf at Evergreen Gifts and Fun Park. We would highly recommend staying here!

Why waste money at a resort when there's this place on Toad Lake?

  • 5 of 5

I must admit I was skeptical at first since I've always stayed at resorts. But, after speaking with the owners my skeptism subsided. They were so darn friendly and HONEST. They told me what exactly was included, what was not, what I should bring and what to expect. They pointed out places of interest and furnished phone numbers. And, the place? Well, it was beautiful and comfortable. The customer service they provided was unbelievable. But, then again what would you expect from "the people up north?" My husband and I are definitely hooked and have already begun checking our calendars for next year. But, this time we hope to stay longer. Now, I ask you how do rate the hosts, Wayne and Karen? Well, how do you improve on perfection? Minnesota may be the land of 10,000 lakes ... but we've found the one that we'll call our vacation home.
