About David

Real estate broker licensed in the state of Minnesota. Tiny home enthusiastic.

David purchased this house in 2003

Why David chose Mora

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 vacationers 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 fishing off the dock is a bonus. Troll around the lake with a canoe and you are bound to catch a fish. In the winter there is ice fishing with easy access to DNR snowmobile trails.

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

I was amazed as soon as I walked into the home. The kitchen was large, as was the living room and bedrooms. The views of the property and lake were magnificent. We all had a fantastic time. I hated to leave and hope to return.

Relaxing place for a vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Mora Lake house. We were looking for a lake home where all we were going to do was nothing. The furniture is comfortable, fire pit is nice by the lake, kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, back of house has great views of the lake. The drive into town was less than 10 minutes. There is a great meat market and New Generations Bakery has the best muffins ever. The only disappointment was the paddleboat was not operable. I'd return.

Quiet Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of friends that have a get together every year. We have stayed at several different VRBO’s, but this is definitely the nicest one. My only “complaint” is the pictures on the listing don’t do the cabin justice. The location is perfect. It’s far enough outside of town that it’s quiet, but close enough to run in and grab something if needed. The main living room has large windows that overlook the lake and has a huge sectional with a rocker/recliner and a very nice TV with satellite for the rainy days. The kitchen is very spacious with new appliances. There’s an awesome dining room table that seats 8 adults comfortably with huge windows looking out over the lake. Both bathrooms are very nice. The flooring is perfect for a lake cabin because it can be cleaned/swept easily. The lake it’s on is super quiet. At night, we actually had to use a white noise producer on our phones because it was too quiet. Lol. The owner is very responsive and provides plenty of amenities.

Lovely Lake Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lake home. The view from the lake house was fantastic. David was great to work with- responded quickly and answered all questions. The home is well stocked with all you need. So fun to have fishing poles, canoes & paddle boat to use. I would definitely recommend this rental!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I booked the lake home with our families for several days. The home was well kept and stocked with all the necessary items. The view from the home looking over the lake was amazing. The garage was stocked with fishing gear and the rental came with several row boats/canoes and a paddle boat. Although the lake was a little small, this made the experience that much better, as it was a private and quiet lake. The owner was quick to respond to questions we had. Overall, my sister, myself and our families absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay and would definitely book again!

Great access to the water.

  • 4 of 5

The property is nice but could use some TLC. Kids loved being so close to the water and having access to the paddleboat and row boat, they caught a lot of fish! There were no dish towels in kitchen and only 2 bath towels in the bathroom. Washer and Dryer and TV with cable were nice at night when it was too buggy to sit by the campfire. Had to buy our own wood. Close to town with grocery store, restaurants, shopping.

Car: necessary

Throughout the year, Mora has a lot local events. In the spring canoe race on the Snake River, summer 5K & half-marathon, fall bicycle tour of 25 or 50 miles. The summer is full of county fairs, farmers' markets, 'Crazy Days' and plenty of other enjoyable activies. The fall colors are great on the lakes and the surrounding area. In the winter there are numerous snowmobil trails and plenty of lakes for ice fishing, also the world-renowned Vasaloppet Classic consisting of 13K, 35K, 42K & 58K races that draw international skiers and spectators.

Other Activities: Ice fishing during the winter
