About Chris Short

i live in Prior Lake with our 10 year old and 3 year old daughter.. 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

I love 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

My daughters love 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 pretty good off the dock!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our group of best friends goes on an annual weekend getaway! This home was spacious - we had a room for each couple. The common areas were large and the view was amazing. The neighborhood is peaceful. The home is in a good location if you'd like to hit the Mall of America or any other fun activities. Overall-- the home was great! The owner was easy to communicate with.

The few cons -- there were 9 bath towels..we had 10 adults. And the bath tub jets in the master didn't work (which sort of bummed out the couple who got that room). But no biggie.

I'd stay there again!

Wonderful house for family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We had family come into town and rented the house for space. It was perfect and Chris was so accomadating. There is a bonus office space that was perfect for the few of us that had to also get some work done. We had a little get together to celebrate my dad's retirement and it couldn't have gone smoother. There is plenty of space for 8 cars in The garage and the driveway (no street parking). It really was a great space with a beautiful view. Thanks Chris!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for our girls' get-together. The house is roomy and comfortable- the views on the lake are stunning. It's in a quiet neighborhood where we were able to go for nice long walks in the morning. Any questions you may have are answered quickly by the landlord who lives nearby. It was the perfect location for us-we spent time in Northfield as well as Minneapolis-not far from either one. Also, not too far from the airport. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Nothing bad to say at all. We had 8 adults (4 couples), 1 toddler, 2 newborns, and 1 small dog. There was plenty of room for all of us. The layout of the house was excellent and the large dining room table easily fit all of us for dinners. Kitchen is nice and big as well. Great views of the lake situated on a great lot. Also on a dead end street, so little to no traffic. I actually live just 20 minutes away, but needed a bigger house with family in town for Thanksgiving. This house was perfect for that. We will rent again.

Beautiful view of the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this house worked out perfect for us! It is so impressive when you walk in and see the lake right there. We stayed there with our two adult children. We had our family over (32 people) to celebrate an early Thanksgiving and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen is pretty well stocked except we couldn't find potholders. There are three rooms upstairs and another three downstairs. It is a popular rental and the house is showing some wear & tear but the owner is aware of that. The owner is a really nice guy; a pleasure to deal with.
