Our lake house offers a panoramic view of a private spring fed lake with all the modern conveniences to make this your home away from home. There is a fully equipped kitchen, formal dinning area with a expandable table to accommodate everyone and large living room with vaulted ceiling, wood fireplace and 60" HD Smart TV. The master bedroom has a 36" smart HD TV.

Relax and enjoy the beautiful sunset overlooking the lake. Watch the family of loons on the lake, the bald eagles soaring overhead or an egret walking along the shore in early morning. Recently guests have reported experiencing an owl as the sun sets in a tree directly in front of the living room (spring 2016). Take the canoe, paddle boat, row boat or fish right off the dock to catch bass, northern, walleye, crappie, sunfish, and a variety of other fish. There is a gas stainless steal grill for cook outs and a lakeside fire pit to gather around and roast marshmallows or share campfire stories. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, spend a cozy day indoors watching a movie, reading a book or playing a game from our collection. You will feel like the outdoors is all around you, with amazing views of the lake and wilderness from virtually every room.

About David

I own a Real Estate Company in Minneapolis. I grew up and went to high school near Mora Minnesota.

David purchased this house in 2003

Why David chose Minnesota

We wanted a lake home close to the Twins Cities where we could relax and have quality time with family. It has been a perfect getaway for us. It has given us great pleasure to open this home to many people over the years.

What makes this house unique

We love the lake home because of the open layout and view of the lake. The mix sand and gravel shore makes it a perfect lake front to cool off in the summer. We keep the sandy shore virtually weed free. The good fishing is a bonus. Troll around the lake with the canoe and you are bound to catch fish. In the winter there is ice fishing with easy access to snowmobile trails.

Best Honeymoon ever!

  • 5 of 5

Randy and I were married on Saturday and didn't have much time off so we thought we would just get a nice place on a lake for a long weekend with our girls ( Ellie & Coco). That was the best part..bringing our dogs. This was all that I hoped for and more. Very clean, great view of the lake and the 60'' TV with Cable was a definite plus. We were able to watch sports, sit down by the lake, went out on the paddle boat and loved every minute. Mora being just 4 miles away was great too...I did some shopping and it was convenient to run into town every day for things we wanted as we left right after the wedding with a little suitcase to it was perfect. Loved that it was only 1 1/2 hour drive too!!! Internet service big plus. We had some questions about how to do some things there and David was easy to get a hold of and responded quickly. We will definitely be going back next year..this was my first VRBO experience and it gets an A rating from these newlyweds!!!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful lake house with beautiful view. A short drive from the city. there is a view to the lake in very part of the house, we can sit in the living room and have a view or cook in the kitchen with the view The located is in a very nice and quiet neighborhood.

The amenities were exactly as expected and there was so many things to do inside and outside for entertainment. We played some board games, Bonfire by the lake, took the paddle boat and canoe around the lake a few times and fishing.

Overall, we found this lake house a great getaway from the cities! We will definitely return to this breath taking view lake house!!

Nice place and great views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Mora Lake Home. It was quiet, pleasant, and had many amenities. We found the accommodations, bedding, and living space to be very nice. It was nice to have the option of sitting indoors looking out over the lake, sitting on the patio outside looking over the lake, or sitting by the lake. I would recommend the place and return.

Last Minute Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for, we wanted a last minute getaway right on a private lake. It was beautiful and serene. The cabin had

everything you could need and more. The view was picturesque.

My 13 year old even caught a huge catfish. Definitely the highlight of his trip. Overall, many family memories made in only three nights. The owner responded quickly to our last minute request to book and was very hospitable. Definitely recommended.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is located on a beautiful, small, quiet lake which we enjoyed very much. The amenities were exactly as expected for the price we paid and we found everything as indicated on the HA site. We had read reviews about the musty odor and while we noted a slight smell upon arrival, it quickly faded the minute the house was opened up and we enjoyed the weekend without issue. The boats were the highlight of the weekend and we utilized them frequently as we had beautiful weather. The owner was easy to work with and his instructions were clear and succinct. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future!

Wonderful Experience - Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect little getaway for our two families to get together. A short drive north of Minneapolis/St. Paul made the location convenient, yet quiet and peaceful away from the city. We spent 3 days sitting by the still lake, fishing, swimming, and at the campfire. We went into Mora, for a short time for ice cream and the park, but the kids just wanted to get back to the lake. We didn't need anything else.

The space was spacious and comfortable and provided everything that we needed. David was great to work with for our needs, and the price was affordable. He even mailed back some items that we had accidentally left behind. We were impressed with the hospitality and consideration. We highly recommend this property for your vacation.
