About Benjamin Miller
This cottage has been in our family for more than 50 years. The cottage has been a favorite family gathering place for many years during the summer. The cottage was purchased by my grandfather when Sugar Lake was 'way up North' from Minneapolis. Today it's only a short 50 minute drive from down Minneapolis. Busy summer and work schedules helped us decide to share this great space with others by making available for weekly rentals.
Benjamin Miller purchased this Cottage in 1958
Why Benjamin Miller chose Maple Lake
Sugar Lake is a wonderful recreation and fishing lake and has a strong and well managed Lake Association. Since it's so close to the Twin Cities, you can take advantage of fishing, boating, and swimming one day and make a quick drive to the city for a Twins game or to take in other sights the next day. The Albertville Outlet Mall and Cabela's is also only a 25-30 minute drive as well. St Cloud is also about 20 minutes to the north. Lake Maria State Park is located only 3 miles to the east and is a great place for a hike in the summer.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is situated on a larger lake lot with 120 feet of west facing shoreline. You'll find that there's ample room between the cabins on the lake and you can sit on the end of the dock in the evening and take in beautiful sunsets. The cottage comes with use of a canoe and paddle boat so you can easily access the lake. A public boat access is located about 1/4 mile north of the cottage if you bring your own boat and there's space for you to secure your boat to our dock for the duration of your stay.

peaceful get away
great location. we may have out it
very comfortable nice cabin
good fishing and alot to do in the area.
We had a great week. Ben was very responsive to emails and calls while we were there.
The view of the lake every morning was refreshing. Upgrade to landscaping is beautiful...better access to viewing the sunsets.
Peace and Quiet
This cottage was very nice, clean, with a lot of good updates. We really liked the ceiling fans in every room! There was ample room to park vehicles, with the beautiful oaks it never got too hot, and the lawn was nice and level to put up a couple of small tents. We especially loved the quiet, no traffic. Lake was wonderful too, sunset views!
Great place - Ben was very accommodating to any needs we had while we were staying at the cabin.
Cabin had everything we needed/wanted. Very clean, close to Twin Cities, so nice to have access to paddleboard and kayaks right out of the door. Would recommend.
Perfect spot for family to spend a fun week together
This was our 5th year at 5 oaks. Always super clean and well equipped. Love the new bathroom and the added central air this year. Plan to return next year.
