Overview

Apple Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, Baths (Sleeps 6)

This is a perfect location for a kid-friendly winter vacation. Spend the day at Buck Hill (3 miles from house) downhill skiing, snowboarding, or snow tubing then warm up by the fireplace. Spend a day shopping at Mall of America while the kids enjoy the rides and arcades of Nickelodeon Universe. Perhaps dine at the Rainforest Café. The Mall of America and all its attractions are only 13 miles away. Visit the Minnesota Zoo (6 miles from house) or cross-country ski the wooded trails of Alimagnet Park (2 miles from house). If the kids would like to sled for a couple hours, the backyard has a sloped hill down to lake great for sledding in winter. Enjoy the backyard lake access by trying your hand at ice fishing or perhaps snowshoe across the frozen lake to the walking trails of Lac Lavon Park.

The house is located on Lac Lavon in Apple Valley. The backyard has a sloped hill down to lake (great for sledding in Winter), lake access, a small dock with aluminum fishing boat and paddle boat, and a private sandy beach with portable fire pit.

This property has a large modern kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, gas-burning stove, dishwasher), teak wood cabinets, and bamboo hardwood flooring. Additional minor appliances include: above stove microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and blender.

The three-season porch attached to the kitchen has panoramic lake views and an adjoining deck with a propane burning, stainless steel barbeque grill.

This property features a first floor formal living room and attached formal dining room with vaulted ceilings.

The family room has a wood-burning fireplace; flat screen LCD TV; bamboo hardwood flooring; leather sofa, chair, and ottoman; glass-top coffee table; art; and lake views.

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

the house worked out well for our large family. There were plenty of sleeping areas. The children's toys in the basement were a bonus as they kept our little ones entertained. We would return and recommend for anyone heading to this area.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This location was perfect! Easy access to major freeways for all activities we had planned. The house was large enough to accommodate all visiting family and the pristine winter view of the lake was awesome! The owner was especially accommodating to return forgotten items after we checked out. Great place to stay!

We had a great stay at this home. The kids loved ice skating on the pond, and the home was spacious, close to any store you might need, very well kept and very well stocked. We will be back again next year! Excellent stay!

An excellent rental home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect fit for a get-together with my siblings. It's well kept, spacious, large enough for a big group, dinner party, BBQ event or any other celebration. The home is planned out with a large family and children in mind. It's in a very nice neighborhood and the lakefront status is a huge bonus.

In the few days we were there we made use of as much of the home as possible. We loved the modern/updated kitchen and dining areas along with the three season porch. We used some of the fishing gear and caught fish from the private dock, we played air hockey and some of the other games available and watched some of the provided DVDs.

The home is only about 15 minutes from the heart of the Twin Cities. There are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby to satisfy the needs of those that don't want to venture into the city.

The suggestions listed by the owner for stores and restaurants was good. We took their advice and ate at a really nice Italian restaurant nearby and had a very good meal and bottle of wine.

The owner was helpful in letting us arrange a late day check out and prompt in returning our full deposit.

Overall, this is an excellent home to rent for a family and an great value!

I would highly recommend this rental to a friend or family member.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all! It was my first time renting a house for vacation and I hope I never have to deal with hotels again. This house is gorgeous and well kept. I stayed here with my husband, 5 month old, in laws, and two other adults and everyone walked away impressed. The kitchen is stocked with all items needed during your stay and the downstairs has an abundance of toys. I can't wait to come back in the summer to enjoy the deck with the whole family!

Great Stay in Apple Valley

  • 5 of 5

Great house on beautiful little lake. Well equipped, clean, and attractive. Very helpful and cooperative owners and local caretaker. During our stay our daughter, son-in-law, and three kids who live in Minneapolis were frequent visitors. The kids, 14,12, and 8, thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the lake and using the kayaks and paddle boat provided with the house. They also brought their own paddle boards and used them several days. Slope from the house to the lake is a bit steep and slippery for us grandparents but we managed. Our 25 pound female poodle discovered the pleasures of lake swimming and would jump off the dock and try in vain to catch one of the many small fish that swarmed around the dock. The place was great fun for all of us and we'll plan to use it again when visiting the kids in Minnesota.
