Winter fishing is also very big on the lake, bring your portable fish house!

About Brian Johnson

My name is Brian Johnson, I grew up in Grand Forks, ND and currently reside in Sauk Centre, MN I am an entrepreneur/business owner that enjoys the water, playing golf, traveling to various VRBO properties & best of all enjoying family time with my 3 children. i like the finer things in life, and want to treat others that way while renting our beautiful cottage. We picked out finishes and furnishings for this property with this in mind, not just thinking of it as a rental and buying cheap stuff - but adding quality products so it can be a place friends, family and vacationers can appreciate and enjoy calling home for their week or so off of real world hustle.

Brian Johnson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Brian Johnson chose Long Prairie

I have family that own property on Sauk Lake and have been vacationing here with them since 2003. So when I decided to take the plunge and purchase a lake home - Sauk Lake and Sauk Center was first on the mind. The property is truly incredible. A terrific golf course on one side, beautiful lake & views in the back with 3 buildings on an acre was a dream to find. The property includes a main home, a bunk house and the cottage. I'll be your neighbor during your stay - so I can assist with anything you may need.

Within the first year it was realized that the former cottage had to either be remodeled or taken down to rebuild. With the help of a wonderful local builder we designed and built a stunning little cottage with all the character and more than the original built in 1927. I spent the first 1/2 of 2012 building out the interior myself. I loved every minute of it, and hope you love what you see as well and make return trips!

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage is very close to the water in a quiet peaceful location. It was built with an old time cottage feel in mind - and we think we did a pretty good job hitting that goal. Sitting in the dinette or out on the deck in the morning with your favorite cup of coffee looking out over the peaceful calm morning lake is incredible! The home was built with sound deadening in the walls between the bedrooms and bathroom so it is very quite for those mornings you want to sleep in! It is not a huge cottage, but it is very functional and has everything you need to create wonderful family memories.

Sauke Lake Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great week at this cottage! Excellent accommodations, we'll stocked with towels, and very clean, ready for our week at the lake. Great being just steps from the water - our dog loved it! The perfect place for a week away to relax and unwind, and spend some quality time together with our kids before the oldest goes away to college. Highly recommend this property, and the owner and family next door are terrific! Great place!

Family vacation with Mack

  • 5 of 5
We had never been to the area and decided to try it for our family vacation. A lot of our decision was based upon the fact that the property was dog-friendly. Brian is a great renter; follow through was good and everything was as he stated. We had a terrific time fishing and swimming. The cabin is smallish, but was perfect for the four of us and Mack. It was a plus we were able to rent the pontoon for the week. Washer/dryer in the cabin would be a nice addition, but the laundromat is close-by. Overall a great experience!!

This summer was our second stay at the cottage. The cottage is in great shape and is accurately captured in the pictures. Quiet lake, good fishing off the dock, and sandy beach. Brian is very responsive to any questions. We will be back!

Beautiful home on a very quiet lake. Only downside was that it was a bit rainy for the entire stay. However we still had a great time!
