This is a perfect location for a kid-friendly winter vacation. Spend the day at Buck Hill (3 miles from house) downhill skiing, snowboarding, or snow tubing then warm up by the fireplace. Spend a day shopping at Mall of America while the kids enjoy the rides and arcades of Nickelodeon Universe. Perhaps dine at the Rainforest Café. The Mall of America and all its attractions are only 13 miles away. Visit the Minnesota Zoo (6 miles from house) or cross-country ski the wooded trails of Alimagnet Park (2 miles from house). If the kids would like to sled for a couple hours, the backyard has a sloped hill down to lake great for sledding in winter. Enjoy the backyard lake access by trying your hand at ice fishing or perhaps snowshoe across the frozen lake to the walking trails of Lac Lavon Park.
The house is located on Lac Lavon in Apple Valley. The backyard has a sloped hill down to lake (great for sledding in Winter), lake access, a small dock with aluminum fishing boat and paddle boat, and a private sandy beach with portable fire pit.

This was our second time staying in this beautiful home. The location was perfect, near shopping, airport, MOA, and restaurants. We were very busy with graduation activities but couldn't wait to get back to the house to relax and enjoy the lake. Everything you need is here from a fully stocked kitchen to a laundry room to a big garage with room for two cars (even a remote opener!). I wish every rental on VRBO was this nice. We would definitely stay again here anytime!
This house was EXACTLY what we were looking for! Our son was getting married in Lakeville and we were all from out of state. We wanted a house large enough for our daughter, son-in-law, grandson and son to stay in together......and this was THE house! We were able to all be together under one roof, have family dinners together but yet have space for ourselves.
My daughter and her family occupied the spacious basement bedroom area and my almost 5 year old grandson loved all the toys available to play with. Our son occupied one of the bedrooms upstairs and we took the master suite......which by the way the view from our bedroom was amazing!
Only bad thing was the weather really didn't cooperate with us....it snowed 😞 so we really couldn't enjoy the huge yard, lake or even the deck.
I would recommend this house in a heartbeat. And I would also love to return in warmer weather so we could enjoy the yard and the lake!!
This place was perfect for our mini family reunion! Great accomodations, lovely view, perfect for three couples! Everything you needed was provided and then some. We recommend this place.
My mom and sisters and I went for the weekend. Loved the place. It was great location for what we were doing. We hope to go back again some time.
We traveled with my young adult children and their friends to Minnesota for a long weekend. The location of the home was perfect - 15 minutes from the Mall of America and about a half an hour from the Target Center where we attended a concert.
The home itself was clean, spacious, and well-appointed. With three bedrooms, four baths, and a roomy finished lower level, there was plenty of room for the six of us to spread out comfortably. The kitchen provided the essentials for us to prepare meals and the deck and grill allowed us to take advantage of the beautiful weather.
The property manager was incredibly helpful and accommodating, prompting answering requests for information.
Our only regret was that we didn't stay long enough to enjoy more of the amenities this lakeside home offered. We would DEFINITELY stay here again!
This place exceeded expectations. Huge rooms, Ikea kitchen, even a high chair for my little one and plenty of toys downstairs for my older child. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend if needing a family get a way or meeting other family members. Even a grill is available. Will stay again if the chance arises.
