About David

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

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 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.

Relaxing Time on the Water

  • 5 of 5

David is most generous in allowing his guests full use of 2 canoes, a paddleboat, and 2 rowboats (as well as PFDs and anything else you'd need out on the water). My family and I spent each of our evenings on the edge of the lake around a fire, talking, finding constellations, and listening to the loons call. The kitchen had all we needed and more to prepare meals, the home was extremely well-kept and fully stocked for plenty of sleepers. This property allows for plenty of fun on the water, the feeling of having the lake to oneself, and a great place to unwind and spend time with others. Thanks David!

Mountain Lake


  • 5 of 5

I returned home yesterday from the most wonderful family vacation!!! This lake home was absolutely PERFECT!!! I'll start with the view: breathtaking! Both the living room and kitchen/dining room overlook the lake with HUGE windows. There are homes with nice lake views but they likely pale in comparison to this one!! There were filled bird feeders outside the window so we got to watch birds. The lake is small in comparison to others but we appreciated that. Because there is no public access, it was very quiet and peaceful. The rental came with a row boat, two canoes, and a paddle boat which added so much wonderful lake time. The garage has numerous fishing poles, life jackets, etc. We caught many fish during our stay. There is flat grassy areas in the front of the house and by the lake so we enjoyed outdoor games and the fire pit on the lake's edge got a lot of use!! The inside of the house is well stocked with towels and all of the necessary kitchen needs like plates, silverware, etc. Do not be concerned about the comfort of the sleeper sofa or the 2 fold-out beds; they have an added cushion top on them so they are quite comfortable. When our daughter and husband headed for home, it left a real bed open but our adult son chose to stay on the sleeper sofa because it was comfortable. The rooms are large so we never felt crowded and the huge TV in the living room was a perk on a rainy day. All communication with David was responded to quickly and professionally. I highly recommend this lake home!!!!

Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing time. This home is great for those wanting to check out from life and just sit and watch the wildlife. The home is well stocked with any thing you would need to enjoy your stay. Close to stores and very quiet. Everything works great.

We will be back for another visit for sure.

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!!!

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
