WHIMSICAL COTTAGE ON THE LAKE

Willmar Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This lake home is located in the W Meadowbrook area on the MN side of Big Stone Lake. It features a 30' glassed in porch, 3 sleeping areas, stone fireplace and 2 additional guest cottages. It has been redone and designed with an eye toward cottage style. Hand painted Scandinavian art by Gold Medalist Rosemaller Karen Jensen is featured throughout.

Walk up to the french doors and see all the way through to the water. A rosemalled staircase, and striking wood interiors (incl bullnose) make for an inviting place for family gatherings. Shaker style kitchen cabinets and a claw foot tub in the main bathroom lend a vintage feel.

The open floor plan conveys a sense of ease and sophistication and the character of this home is emphasized by the quality and style of furnishings.

An outdoor bathhouse/bathroom provides a whimsical spot to shower after swimming.

So if you are looking for a great place for your whole family to come and make memories, share a meal, take a nap or just sit and enjoy the breeze in the porch, this may be the getaway for you.

Wonderful, relaxing stay for a Women's Ministry retreat. Plenty of room to spread out yet cozy enough to feel close. Description was accurate and owner extremely helpful! So charming I will return again with my large family!

Our church women's ministry leadership team spent a wonderful time at the cabin. We were able to relax and have fun planning the year's events in this beautiful cabin! There was plenty of room and the cozy kitchen was perfect for our potluck meals. The view of the lake is tranquil and beautiful. On an early morning walk, I saw 4 deer in th state park just across the road. This cabin makes you want to return!

My husband and I and our four boys spent a week at the cottage in August. We loved our time there! Our older boys really enjoyed the upstairs loft with bunk beds and the outdoor shower, which came in super handy. They also loved catching frogs by the lake :-). The cottage had plenty of space for our large family and is so quaint and lovely- so much attention to detail in all the decorations. We hope to return again soon!!

Our stays at the cottage always leave us with a desire to return and soon. There are unique activities in the area to explore but never enough time because we do not want to leave the property! It is spacious and cozy. It is warm with cool breezes off the lake. It has a personality like none other. Everything you need to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Our hosts were delightful!

What a beautiful home and setting—just as pictured and more! Our stay was brief, but early morning coffee at the end of the dock and feeling the sun's warmth was beyond description. A place I’d love to be every morning! I brought my book along, but was too captured by the beauty of the place, the cozy accommodations, the wildlife, and the many changing panoramas of the lake to read it! The serenity of the place is “just what the doctor ordered” if you are looking for beauty, peace and quiet and great accomodations.
