Waterfront home on the quiet and clean lake of Medicine Lake with stunning views, 60 feet of lake shore and private dock. Medicine Lake is the 2nd biggest lake in the Twin Cities metro area – a spectacular oasis set away from it all, but without the long and expensive drive. Minutes from downtown Minneapolis (less than 10 miles), Mall of America and readily convenient access to unique and large array of shopping, eating and entertainment. Where else can you enjoy secluded lake life and then drive 15 minutes from your dock to a Twins game?
Have your own boat? Bring it along and tie up to your own private dock. Lake is perfect for skiing, wake boarding or fishing anytime you desire. Own a sailboat? Bring it along to sail on a lake known for its sailing schools. Lake shore does not have a sandy beach but easy to jump in a boat to head out for a swim.
After a day enjoying the lake, enjoy stunning sunsets and relax on the private stoned patio complete with a BBQ grill followed by roasting marshmallows in the fire pit within the large rolling green lakeside lawn.
Fitness fan? Enjoy the miles upon miles of paved trails around Medicine Lake.
Looking for parks? Medicine Lake boasts 3 parks, including the famous French Lake Park.

My wife and I spent our 40th wedding anniversary at this house. It was wonderful . We had family and some friends stay. The pictures shown really show the home well. The house was well maintained. There is plenty of parking . Gas stations, bait , liquor store are all within 5 minutes. The house has everything you need . There is a big back yard, boat dock. and fire pit , The owners were wonderful. They communicate well and genuinely care that you have a good time in their property. You are close to the Twin Cities, airport, Target Field for Twins games, Mall of America for shopping . Travel time to those was 30 minutes or less. But when you come back to the house you wouldn't know there is a major city just minutes from you . The patio/dining area is great for dinners of 8 people . You can eat and look at the very large 886 acre lake. There is an outside patio with BBQ The whole house is on one level with the exception of one bedroom and its only one step up. There is a boat rental directly across at Hardy's and there is a public boat launch at French Park . Both are close and easy to get to .You can fish off the dock but fishing in a boat would be better. We would do this again.
We stayed at the Medicine Lake house for 10 days - 6 adults, 2 children (5 and 9 months) and one small dog. We were pleasantly surprised to have the house not only meet but exceed our expectations from the photos online. The house was beautiful, the bedrooms had plenty of space for us all and we loved the dining room with its 3 sides of windows. We enjoyed sitting in the chairs by the lake, playing games on the lawn and had a wonderful campfire in the fire pit. It truly is 20 minutes from just about everything - the University, the Mall of America, the Kids Science Museum, the zoo and closer to the Minnesota Twins stadium. The French Park beach was awesome - free shuttle from the parking lot, very nice (but shallow) beach, picnic area and an amazing play space. And all free! We would definitely recommend the house. The owners were great about answering questions very quickly.
Our family (of 4) thoroughly enjoyed this retreat on Medicine Lake. The home is in wonderful condition, quite spacious, and is very clean. All of the amenities are provided, and the owners provide you with a list of suggested items to bring including beach towels, or of course groceries. There is a property manager close by whom you can contact if need be, and the owners provide you with their direct contact information as well.
The home is VERY convenient to Minneapolis and surrounding areas. We chose this home because we wanted a location on the lake, yet close to the Mall of America, and restaurants and other lakeside towns. Everything we went to was within 15 to 20 minutes of the home. We rented a pontoon on Lake Minnetonka for a day, we went to Wayzata and took a tour on their steamboat tour, we went to the Mall of America -- lots of places to go and see and very closeby.
We did look into other Minnesota rentals, but they were at least 2 hours away each way to get to these same activities.
You will not be disappointed in choosing this home rental for your vacation!
Our family came to Minnesota from Florida to celebrate a special event of my sons wedding. We were looking to rent a home for us to stay during our visitation, and came across this one! From that moment, we fell in love with this beautiful home on the lake. The customer service was kind, professional, and helpfull to our needs. When we arrived, everything was clean and welcoming, it felt like a home rather than a house. During our stay we have no difficulties or any inconveniences, the word for it is perfect and lovely. Thank you for making this special trip even more worry free and exciting.
Less than 10 miles to downtown Mpls, close to fantastic restaurant and shops.
