About Owner/Property Manager

My family is from the Sartell area, and purchased lakefront land at Rabbit Lake about 15 years ago. I moved to Illinois (western Chicago suburbs) for career opportunities, but spend most of my vacations with my siblings and parents at Rabbit Lake. Over the years, we have also been vacation home renters, in destinations like Florida, California, Colorado, Virgin Islands and Belize. On vacation, I love the experience of a "home away from home" and not a hotel.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Aitkin

We fell in love with the natural beauty of quiet Rabbit Lake. Our shoreline is shallow and sandy, but this small lake has clear water and contoured bays with depths to 50 feet. My family built this home together over several years. The hand-made hickory cabinets came from my father's garage. The pine ceilings were installed over a Thanksgiving weekend (thankfully many years ago!). We love the lake, the breezy elevation of the house, and the natural beauty of our wooded 2.9 acres.

What makes this cabin unique

To maintain the condition of this beautiful home, only a few weekly rentals are available each year.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Dana's cabin. Everything about the house is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. They let us bring our dogs which was fun. The lake is great for long swims. Overall a very quality place. Just FYI, it is very secluded, but there are neighbors close on either side of the house.

Awesome Vacation in a Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to get away from it all...."all" but the comforts of home, this is the place! Beautiful wooded, lakefront property, a fully furnished home with authentic wood details all around, and a gourmet kitchen too! Our extended family enjoyed every minute of our week together. We fished, we played games, we sat around the campfire (for as long as we could without being eaten by the famous Minnesota mosquitoes!), cooked awesome family dinners together and absolutely enjoyed our time here. Plenty of room for our big group. We saw deer, we named and fed the friendly chipmunks (Alvin, Simon & Theodore), listened to the loons, and saw many beautiful birds. The owners were quick to respond when a tree came down during a storm our third day here. Fortunately there weren't any injuries or serious damage, and we continued our vacation without a hiccup. If you're looking to relax and enjoy family time, this is the place for you!

Red Fox Inn

This cabin is even more stunning than the pictures indicate. The cabin is very roomy. We had a party of six and everyone had plenty of space to do whatever they wanted. The lake was so peaceful and welcoming. We kayaked all but one day of our vacation. My son caught fish from the dock. The firepit was very accommodating. We look forward to returning to this cabin again. Monica

Beautiful updated cabin on a peaceful lake

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so gorgeous, updated, and has almost everything you need! The decor was beautiful and everything was very clean. They had lots of kitchenware, two grills, a pool table, and lots of games and movies for our one rainy day. It is a small jaunt down to the lake, which is very clear and clean; you just have to get out past the dock a bit to get past the weeds. There is some sandy bottom right at the shoreline, but no "beach" speak of. We brought a big raft, tied it to the dock, floated out, and were happy as clams. Great stay for our extended family of 8!

Beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a couples getaway. The cabin is spacious with enough room for people to spread out. We are all foodies and the kitchen set up was AMAZING. Everything we could've needed or wanted was there. EVERYTHING. The bedrooms were all comfortable and well decorated. The patio area was awesome for fires and the grills were great. The table inside is big enough for group meals and card games. Tons of music selection, some DVDs,and books. This cabin would be great for summer or winter rental. It is tucked away in the woods, easy to find. Don't expect much cell service--- which is kind of nice. I ended up turning mine off for most of our time there ! The neighbors are friendly. The owners were easy to contact and quick to help with anything we needed. I have rented many cabins and the amenities available at this cabin really go above and beyond most VRBO/Homeaway rentals.The cabin was clean. We had a great time and would love to return!
