Enjoy this lake home on beautiful Lake Fremont, which is ONLY 45 MINUTES AWAY FROM MINNEAPOLIS.

2 BR/ 1 BA Lake Home

Lake Fremont

Zimmerman, MN

Welcome to your next vacation get-away! Nestled on Lake Fremont with a beautiful view of a peaceful natural setting, this house has a huge deck, sandy beach and lakeside fire pit. Relax in the warmth and openness of the main living room with its vaulted ceilings and gas fireplace; surrounded by two bedrooms, open kitchen, wood floors, huge windows, skylights and gas fireplace. This is your home away from home as you give your body a rest, go fishing, have a picnic, relax on the sandy beach or make s’mores on the fire pit. Bring your boat and cruise the lake and explore the island in the center of the lake. In the winter, bring your snowmobile and explore the miles of nearby trails. The bonfire pit is just steps from the water.

The master suite is lofted and has skylights. The second bedroom has a lake/beach view. There is also a large L-shaped couch perfect for afternoon naps.

The living room has skylights, large LED TV with cable (included), DVD, and built-in surround sound speakers. The large windows and doors offer a great view of the lake.

Amenities: Fireplace, Central Air/Heat, TV, DVD, Updated Kitchen w/ breakfast bar, Microwave, Dishwasher, Refrigerator, Wine Fridge, Washer, Dryer, extra vehicle parking and BBQ grill. Cable and High-speed WiFi available. Large dock. Patio Furniture.

Like to fish? Throw in a line and catch sunnies right off the dock! Or cast for something more challenging - the lake was recently restocked with game fish by the DNR.

Winter sports - great area for cross country skiing, snowmobiling or ice fishing.

If you are bringing the family, we have a wide variety of family games, cable TV, wireless internet and a DVD player.

Like to eat out or go bowling? Within one mile there is an excellent, affordable family restaurant and bowling alley, Zimmerman Bowl, as well as a gas station, grocery store, liquor store and a Dunn Brothers coffee. If you enjoy shopping, there are a handful of wonderful antique and vintage shops in Zimmerman.

All furnishings, linens, cooking utensils, and kitchenware are included.

Want to bring your dog? We welcome dogs for a non-refundable $100 pet deposit. No cats allowed as the owner has a severe cat allergy. Please note that smoking is not allowed inside the cabin.

Only 20 minutes to Albertville Outlet Shopping Center and the Shops at Arbor Lakes. Only 45 minutes to Minneapolis.

About Craig Sandok

Christina and I bought this house and used it as our lake cabin for several years. We have since both started businesses and are starting a family which leaves us little time to get to the lake. Since we can't use it, we hope you can. We also hope you enjoy relaxing in it as much as we do!

Craig Sandok purchased this house in 2006

Why Craig Sandok chose Minnesota

This is a great lake house with beautiful views and it's the perfect place to relax.

What makes this house unique

This house is very close to the Twin Cities. There are great restaurants and bars in Zimmerman and nearby Elk River and Otsego.

Fabulous lake cottage on the lake, beautiful views and convenience to most everything. Great local venues and watch out for the birds and geese. Everything you need is in the house. Great place and Great Lake

Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was adorable and well stocked with all the essentials. The kids played in the sand and water from sun up to sun down. Great cabin for families with kids or just adults. Very nice large deck close to the water which was perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!

Perfect Escape for City Dwellers

  • 5 of 5

Just an hour outside Minneapolis, this charming lakeside gem was the perfect weekend escape for our party of four. The cabin is pristine and decorated with darling cottage details, and its location is the best on the lake! You can walk the perimeter, sit on the dock, make a fire in the outdoor fit, or simply curl up with a good book. Bonus: the charcoal grill! Looking forward to sneaking in another visit soon. Thank you, Christina and Craig.

Family visit with littles

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay here, but my first with little ones. We had a great time ! The beach was perfect for swimming and sandcastles. The house was already stocked with great beach toys. We ended up having terrible weather, but made use of a park (within walking distance) and the variety of toys and games already supplied in the house. The house is such a quick drive from the cities and very well appointed. I'm sure we'll be back!

Great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just like last year, the cottage was spotless and very well stocked with the basics. Craig's communication before and after is top notch. This is the most beautiful place and location! The only very minor bummer was a lack of firewood. The only reason I expected it to be there this year is because it was last year, but no big deal! A quick trip in to the gas station and problem was solved. Thank you for another great stay and we look forward to next summer!

A little gem close to the city!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at Freemont Cottage, and, as in years past, the entire property is impeccable. From the functionality of the layout, to the lakeside vibe interior, to the back deck and sandy beach...this place has it all! And you could not get a better person to work with than Craig. He answered any and all questions within minutes, and had the cottage ready to go when we got there.

This is the perfect cottage for a family gathering, girl's weekend, or couples get away. You could read my past reviews for more detail, but I highly recommend Freemont Cottage for your get away.
