LARGE LAKEFRONT HOME NEAR TWIN CITIES

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.

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.

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.

Second stay better than the first!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at this location, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Jasen is a delight to work with, the home has every amenity one could want, and the property is well maintained. It's a great location - easy to get to everything in the cities. The lake is as beautiful to sit by as it is to walk/jog around - the perfect size for relaxation without the noise of powerboats at early morning hours. We were thankful for the opportunity.

awesome stay

  • 5 of 5
We loved this location it was one of the best that we have stayed at.. It was exactly how is was listed., I will miss the balcony in the main bedroom. However going down to the lake is a trip it makes you think twice about walking down the slope (actually walking back up is where you feel your age) lol.. But we enjoyed. Thank You Jason for sharing.

Awesome Opportunity!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home near Minneapolis! The descriptions and pictures of the property described it perfectly. It was very comfortable and just right for family members of all ages. Jasen was delightful to work with! He gave us all the information we needed to have and everything was just like he said it would be. It was a very safe, enjoyable, and friendly neighborhood and the home. The only thing that was tricky was remembering the level changes in the home. Occasionally I'd forget there was a step down to the family room. We feel very blessed to have been able to enjoy a week in this lake-front home...lots of special memories of having family together and gorgeous vistas from about every room in the house. Thanks again!!!

Even better than expected! The house and view blew us away!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first vrbo stay and I'll never go back to a hotel! The house was incredible with more than enough space. Everything was clean and easy to find. Location and view was top notch. Just make sure they have the boat out if you plan to fish because the lake is private.

Great Family Rental!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for a trip to visit friends. I was a little worried about traveling with our busy 2 year old twins but we hit the jackpot with this house! The entire finished basement is filled to the brim with toys to keep kids busy and the property even had kid friendly accommodations like high chairs/booster chairs/toddler beds! The backyard is beautiful (a little steep for small kids) and there are several really nice parks very close (within walking distance)! We would definitely stay there again!
