2 BR/ 1 BA Lake Home

Lake Fremont

Zimmerman, MN

Welcome to your next vacation get-away! Nestled on Lake Fremont with a beautiful view of a peaceful natural setting, this house has a huge deck, sandy beach and lakeside fire pit. Relax in the warmth and openness of the main living room with its vaulted ceilings and gas fireplace; surrounded by two bedrooms, open kitchen, wood floors, huge windows, skylights and gas fireplace. This is your home away from home as you give your body a rest, go fishing, have a picnic, relax on the sandy beach or make s’mores on the fire pit. Bring your boat and cruise the lake and explore the island in the center of the lake. In the winter, bring your snowmobile and explore the miles of nearby trails. The bonfire pit is just steps from the water - firewood is complimentary.

The master suite is lofted and has skylights. The second bedroom has a lake/beach view. There is also a large L-shaped couch perfect for afternoon naps.

The living room has skylights, large LED TV with cable (included), DVD, and built-in surround sound speakers. The large windows and doors offer a great view of the lake.

Amenities: Fireplace, Central Air/Heat, TV, DVD, Updated Kitchen w/ breakfast bar, Microwave, Dishwasher, Refrigerator, Wine Fridge, Washer, Dryer, 2-car Heated Garage, extra vehicle parking and BBQ grill. Cable and High-speed WiFi available. Large, new dock. Patio Furniture.

Like to fish? Throw in a line and catch sunnies right off the dock! Or cast for something more challenging - the lake was recently restocked with game fish by the DNR.

Winter sports - great area for cross country skiing, snowmobiling or ice fishing.

If you are bringing the family, we have a wide variety of family games, cable TV, wireless internet and a DVD player.

Like to eat out or go bowling? Within one mile there is an excellent, affordable family restaurant and bowling alley, Zimmerman Bowl, as well as a gas station, grocery store, liquor store and a Dunn Brothers coffee. If you enjoy shopping, there are a handful of wonderful antique and vintage shops in Zimmerman.

All furnishings, linens, cooking utensils, and kitchenware are included.

Want to bring your dog? We welcome dogs for a non-refundable $100 pet deposit. No cats allowed as the owner has a severe cat allergy. Please note that smoking is not allowed inside the cabin.

About Craig Sandok

Christina and I bought this house and used it as our lake cabin for several years. We have since both started businesses and are starting a family which leaves us little time to get to the lake. Since we can't use it, we hope you can. We also hope you enjoy relaxing in it as much as we do!

Craig Sandok purchased this house in 2006

Why Craig Sandok chose Zimmerman

This is a great lake house with beautiful views and it's the perfect place to relax.

What makes this house unique

This house is very close to the Twin Cities. There are great restaurants and bars in Zimmerman and nearby Elk River and Otsego.

This was our second family vacation to this property. We love the quietness of the lake and the very clean and comfortable house. We plan on making this stay multiple times a year :)

Clean and cute cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I took my two boys up for a long weekend from the cities. Got to love that the drive only took 45 minutes but we felt like we were away from it all. The cabin is so clean and nice, and the setting is great with a sandy beach and big dock. We took our boat and went out to the island in the middle of the Lake several times to explore. We hope to go again.

Best Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Fremont Cottage is by far the best place we've stayed for our annual girls weekend! We could not have asked for a better place - the close proximity to the Cities, sandy beach, warm welcoming cottage (fun decor!!), games, wifi....I could go on and on.

Craig, the owner, is extremely easy to work with! He was always available to answer questions and gave excellent instructions as to the cottage and all its amenities.

We hope to be back next year, as we thoroughly enjoyed out time!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at the Fremont cottage. Such a nice short drive from the cities, great area, lake and neighborhood. The cottage is modern, stylish, comfortable and they have truly thought of every last detail. So many accommodating features, WiFi, Netflix, Paddleboat, games, beach... I can't name them all. It is such a great feeling to not have to pack dishes and bedding... it felt like staying at a hotel. I felt so at home, I really didn't want to leave. We look forward to spending many more weekends away at the cottage in the future.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our family (2 adults and 2 young children) spent 14 days while I was in the area for business and just loved this property. This home is very well maintained and has excellent amenities. I can not think of anything we needed that was not already in the home.

The owners are VERY responsive and a pleasure to work with. The sandy beach was the kids favorite. And just sitting outside enjoying the view in the evening was a favorite of mine. The bathroom is also fantastic with heated floors and a great shower.

The wifi was terrific and had plenty of speed for working remotely and the cable tv had a good variety of channels available. The nearby shopping is also very convenient and offers some good dining options.

I would highly recommend this property for families with young children or couples who are looking for a nice and very reasonably priced property to enjoy a week or weekend away.

Did I mention how responsive the owners are? Everything from booking, arrival instructions, and instructions for operating all of the amenities were provided. Thank you Craig. We look forward to returning and staying here again.
