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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Enjoyed our family celebration weekend at the lake so much! Plenty of room for extended family, while not being on top of each other. Creek and lakeshore beach, volleyball, swimming, fishing, scrabble, campfire, outdoor shower/bathroom (perfect for after swimming), kayaking, local farm produce (Lismore Farms is well worth the trip), golf and a local swimming pool that is full of small town fun. We'll be back, for sure!!!

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.

We vacationed at my father in laws cabin down the road from the whimsical cabin for years. We always cleaned and mowed the grass before leaving. When I was looking into cabin rentals and came across the whimsical cabin I was so excited! I was hoping for a nice cabin where we could all relax and have fun. It was better then I expected! Nice and roomy, the kitchen has all you need to cook, having a washer and dryer was very nice! It was nice to not to mow or clean when we left the cabin, and coming home with less laundry was great too! I highly recommend the whimsical cottage for anyone looking for a family get away!

Our stay at Meadowbrook

We loved the area of MN and SD border. It had tons of wildlife and scenery. Great golf courses, nice antique shops and good eateries. The cabin was nicely decorated and loaded with good reading material. We loved the large windowed area looking out at the lake area. What we didn't like was the swimming area. When we were there the water was like a thick, slimy, slough that stunk like sewage. We were very disappointed that we were not informed of this issue. Loved the cabin and the area but NOT a good place for swimming when we were there.

Owner's Response: So sorry you had algae problems....this has not been a big problem for us, tho we get about a half dozen random bad days or so per summer. Wish we could control the weather:)

wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5
We were in Ortonville for one of our friends weddings and decided to rent a cabin instead of getting a hotel. There were about 8 of us who stayed and it eas perfect. There was lots of room and plenty of places to sleep. The beds were comfortable snd the place was very clean. We had so many wedding activities we didn't get to enjoy this beautiful cabin as much as we would have liked to but we are hoping to go back and spend time enjoying this great place. Thanks Sue for providing such a great vacation spot!

My family loved this cabin. Very clean and neat throughout each floor. I especially loved the location as it felt so private and is directly on a beautiful, big lake (bright pink sunsets every night). I would definitely recommend going to this cabin for a vacation, I got beyond my money's worth for sure and think it will be a repeat vacation spot for our family.

Family get together

  • 1 of 5
We were excited to stay here and the cabin was nice. We paid extra for extra guests and we only received half of our security deposit back because they said we used all the blankets and sheets and they had to much laundry to do. A scam I think. The grill was dirty so we had to clean it. (The owners left a note saying the people that stayed last left it that way so if we wanted to use it we had to clean it.) We cleaned the two bunk houses and washed the bedding. It was dirty and moldy. Bring a duster if you don't like cobwebs, there were alot. We also had to clean one of the pull out couches because it was full of mouse poison. Nice setting but feel like we were ripped off. We left the cabin a lot cleaner than when we got there. To bad because we travel there often and may have stayed again.
