Minnesota Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Swedish Cottage on 100' of private shoreline on Little Pequaywan Lake

**From early June through the end of August, we only rent from Saturday through Saturday to ensure solid bookings all summer long. Please contact us if you have any questions about this policy!**

This new construction is wonderfully appointed and a great space for your getaway. The interior is constructed with light bright aspen paneling & red oak flooring. The vaulted great room is terrific for entertaining and warming next to the woodstove. The custom kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless appliances, a center island for gathering and is fully furnished. The full bath is finished off with black Vermont slate, granite countertops and aspen paneling. The two bedrooms and sleeping loft comfortably sleep 6-8 guests. The large deck overlooking the lake leads to a good sized flat yard perfect for playing catch or other outdoor games. From the yard there is set of stairs to the swimming area & dock. The swimming area has clear water with a solid gravel bottom.

Winter: For snowmobiling fanatics, this property is located w/in one mile of the Pequaywan & Brimson Trails! The lake offers a number of species for ice fishermen. The area also has significant public property available for cross country skiing and snowshoeing!

Summer: Our sauna is a great way to relax at the end of a hard day of vacationing. To add to your relaxing vacation, we also offer a patio with grill/patio furniture, kayaks, and many other amenities for you to enjoy! Little Pequaywan Lake (aka Smith Lake) contains walleye, crappies, pan fish, bass and northern pike for fishing enthusiasts.

About Roxanne

The cottage on Little Pequaywan is owned by a group of friends from the Duluth area who have maintained their friendship through their shared love of the outdoors. Throughout the last several years, we have completed some wild adventures together, such as: kayaking the Mississippi River, biking around Lake Superior and hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim to rim.

Lately, we have decided to spend more time enjoying the area we have all lived in for most of our lives, Northern Minnesota! In order to enjoy the area to the fullest extent, we decided to purchase a cabin on one of the most beautiful lakes in the area, Little Pequaywan Lake.

A little more about us:

Tony: Grew up in Chisholm, Minnesota; graduated from the University of MN-Duluth; is currently employed as an engineer in Duluth.

Chandra: Grew up in Minnesota; graduated from Lake Superior College; currently employed in the physical therapy field in the Duluth area.

Lucas: Grew up in Northern Minnesota; graduated from the University of MN-Twin Cities; currently making paper in Wisconsin.

Roxanne: Grew up in Sturgeon Lake, MN; graduated from the University of MN-Duluth; currently employed in the human resources field in Wisconsin.

Roxanne purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Roxanne chose Minnesota

The first time we drove up to this property we knew it was the one for us (likely the reason why we made an offer to purchase the next day!).

The well built and beautifully furnished cottage is situated 100' from the waters edge with a panoramic view from the living room, dining room and front patio. At the waters edge you will find 100' of lakeshore with a hard gravel bottom and a dock to enjoy everything the lake has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

The beautifully furnished living/dining area is a great place to relax and converse after a long day on the water or in the many acres of state owned forest just minutes from the cabin.

If the outdoors is your primary reason for visiting, you will really enjoy fishing on Little Pequaywan Lake (very little traffic, no public landing) or snowmobiling on the many miles of local trails (less than a mile from the Brimson and Pequaywan trails).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just spent our first wedding anniversary here. Enjoyed the peace and quiet and seclusion. Didn't expect the snowy view, would like to enjoy the cabin in nicer weather. Thanks Lucas and Tony for the chance to stay here. We look forward to making more memories here.

Very nice spot, but not for everyone

  • 3 of 5

On the plus side, this is a very clean, comfortable, modern cabin in a very pretty location. The sauna is a good one and a real asset.

On the minus side, even though the cabin is far from conveniences like groceries, it’s not isolated in terms of traffic or other people. The lake is full of cabins and houses with close neighbors, the road is relatively well-traveled most times of day, and the cabin is very close to this road. That could be a concern for families with small children and/or pets. The bedrooms face the road, so there is some noise well into the night.

The dock is very nice, but down a fairly steep hill with quite a few steps, which could be a problem for some people. Due to the steepness, the dock is not visible from the cabin or its deck, which again could concern parents of younger children.

One final note: bring plenty of mosquito repellant!

Nice & Remote

  • 4 of 5

Very nice little cabin on a beautiful lake. The cabin and property were great (including the sauna), but it was much farther from Duluth than I expected (my fault for not checking more closely). It is about a 40 minute drive from Duluth through lots of undeveloped forest. For many that might be the appeal, but for my wife and I, we felt slightly uncomfortable being that far away from any other people. But really that is just a matter of preference.

Quiet and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family of 5 over Easter break. We enjoyed the wood burning stove along with all the amenities of home. Beds are super comfortable. Kids loved sliding down the driveway hill and having their own place in the loft. Great time had by all!

Up North-Away from it all

  • 4 of 5

Great little place, very well kept and maintained, great place to get away from it all. Since we were there when there was still ice on the lake, did not get to enjoy as much as one would from a ice out activity perspective. The Sauna was a real treat, very, very, nice. King bed in master was perfect, not to hard, not to soft. Updated and very well kept place. Pretty isolated location, a bit of good and bad there, a bit of a negative for us is/was the lack of any real area/space to walk/hike from the property unless you are on the road. Water pressure was poor. Will certainly do again sometime, next time will pick a spring, summer, or fall visit, and enjoy the lake from water level. Questions we had prior to the visit responded to promptly. Duluth being only about 30 miles away were our destinations for shopping and dining, many great options. Would recommend to a friend for sure.
