About Chris Short

We live in Prior Lake with our 6 year old daughter. We purchased the Sycamore Trail property in 2005 as an investment. The main floor was completely remodeled through our company, Replacement Inc. We currently rent the home fully furnished for vacation or long term housing needs.

Chris Short purchased this house in 2005

Why Chris Short chose Minnesota

We were both raised in small towns and liked the small-town feel of Prior Lake. Our family enjoys being on the water and wanted a place where we share our home with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Our daughter loves to feed the ducks and fish right off our dock. Every year, we enjoy watching the baby ducklings grow all summer long. The fishing is also great and the house is in a residential neighborhood so it is the perfect place to find peace and refuge from our hectic lives.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spacious with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Spent an extended early Spring weekend with 5 girlfriends at this wonderful home. Very spacious and roomy with beautiful lake views! Had everything needed for preparing meals, comfortable beds, plenty of sitting areas both inside and outside. Elderly in our group however upstairs level with numerous bedrooms limited need for use of steps to lower level. Lower level patio allowed outside seating without using lower landscaped levels. Chris was very accommodating in helping us out with this and promptly addressed any questions we had. Thank you!

Beautiful, Lake Property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (8 people all together) stayed at this property in the middle of the Minnesota winter. We had a great time enjoying the frozen lake in the wonderful comfort of this house. Chris, the proprietor, was extremely easy to work with and flexible managing everyone involved. The pictures described the property well. It is well maintained, comfortable and spacious. I would visit this property again in a heart beat!
