About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sand Beach, Level Lot

This is our beautiful lake home on Sunset Bay with a sand beach on the east side of Mille Lacs Lake. This 3-bedroom 2-bathroom home includes a fully-equipped kitchen with large center island. The living room/dining area has a huge vaulted ceiling with big windows facing the yard and lake. The big yard is level, perfect for games like badminton, croquet, and bocce ball. The sand beach is shallow for a long ways out, perfect for kids, with no weeds or rocks. The water is crystal clear. There is a long dock with a large boat lift. Have a bonfire on the beach while enjoying a gorgeous sunset! Also great for ice-fishing. Close to Soo Line Trail for ATV and snowmobilers. Small-town shops, restaurants, and golf.

About Kathy

My husband, a home builder, built our lake home in 2005. We have so many great family memories here...bonfires on the beach, swimming, floating, fishing, taking long walks in the area, and just relaxing and hanging out. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Kathy chose Mille Lacs Lake

We chose Mille Lacs Lake because of the great fishing, clean lake, and we also wanted a sandy beach because we enjoy swimming, boating, and floating. We like being on the east side of the lake so we can enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Our family came up to Mille Lacs for the first time and stayed here. Kathy was awesome and this house is much nicer than the pictures show. We had a great time, rented a pontoon from Hunter Winfields in Isle, for a few days and had a great time on the lake. The beach here was amazing for the kids just as described so many great memories for the kids were created here and Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home!! We look forward to coming back at some point and visiting again!! We went bowling one evening in Isle when we got rained on and turned out to have a great time there also!!

Definitely recommend!!!

Dream House on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Nicest rental property yet! Very well maintained! You can tell that this is a personal home away from home. Refreshing to deal directly with the home owner who was very responsive. We'll definitely stay here again when visiting MN.

Wonderful Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at Kathy's place for three years and it is a superb place for a family vacation. The house is well-kept and the large yard allows for games and activities. We have a boat and the lift is an incredible amenity. After being on the lake, you can feel security in knowing your boat is safe on the lift. The sand beach allows for the younger kids to be safe while playing in the water. Our family has vacationed on Mille Lacs Lake for over thirty-five years and this is by far the best house we have found.

Kathy is very easy to work with when preparing for our trip and she is concerned about us having the best time possible. We would highly recommend this property to others.

Finally, we enjoy the pizza from the Isle Bowl and we enjoy going to Mug's in Wahkon. Both have great food at reasonable prices.

Great Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The house had all the amenities of home. We were able to cook, relax, plenty of room to spread out, and the bedding was quite comfortable. The property was well maintained and there were no surprises from the listing. We loved the easy access to the lake, and found the dock very handy is supporting our rental boat. A beautiful sunny retreat!..

Arkansas boy's "second time around"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed, for the second consecutive year, in Kathy's lake house and it was as good as the first. The lake home is impeccably kept with just about everything you'll need. Great back patio and boat dock for that midday break from fishing. Plenty of room for four guys with all the comforts of home. Thanks again Kathy for a wonderful week on Mille Lac's.

PS: We will recommend your home to a couple of BASS Tournament guys we know.
