Rest and relax on the shore of a peaceful lake surrounded by park land.

Enjoy sunsets on the ridge with firepit overlooking the lake. Sleeps 8 in airbeds. We’ll accept up to 12. Bring a tent and sleeping bags for the yard!

No TV or WiFi. This is time to unplug and unwind. Bring a book and some family games, your bikes for the trails and your water toys for the lake! Get outdoors! Enjoy!

The space
The whole house is yours to enjoy! It isn’t the Ritz but it’ll do! It’s a bit of a quirky house actually but it does boast a full kitchen & huge deck with a grill. It’s not fully furnished but enough to get by. Don’t be looking for a Beautyrest bed. They really are airbeds. If you can’t sleep on an air bed, this may not be the place for you.

You have one acre and 125 ft of lakeshore to enjoy. Bring a kayak or SUP and enjoy our 100 acre back yard of pure lake bliss! We have a kayak, canoe, SUPS, lilipad, raft, and a paddleboat that are shared with our other BNB. So, you may not have to bring your own! There's also miles of trails for biking and walking with access from our property. So bring your walking shoes, roller blades or bikes!

3 of the 4 bedrooms are in the lower level. If you have trouble with stairs, we recommend you use the bedroom on the main level. Some of our guests have opted to bring the airbeds upstairs on the 4 season porch to get the sounds and smells of the great outdoors without having to sleep in a tent. Others have brought the beds out to the living room on the main floor so they can wake up to a wall of windows making it also feel like you’re sleeping in the great outdoors but with walls and running water steps away!

The bathroom on the main floor is a half bath. The full baths with shower and tubs are in the lower level. There are also many stairs to get to the lake. If you have trouble with stairs, this may not be the spot for you.

Please wash all dishes used during your stay! Dish soap and dishwasher soap are provided.

There’s a laundry. Bring your own detergent.

There are two ovens. The top one has self cleaning. So if your dishes tend to overflow, we'd really appreciate you using the top oven and wiping up the overflow as best you can. Thank you.

There's a dehumidifier in the laundry. If it gets a little humid for you, turn it on. It will pull the humidity out in no time!!

There's a fire pit. Bring your own dry wood. You may find plenty of wood around the property. However, it might not be dry. So best to stop at the gas station and get yourself a nice, dry bunch. We recommend getting some marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate while you're there. Be sure fire is out before you head in for the night.

Use of property and any lake toys are at your own risk.

If you're a small party of two using a small portion of the home, let us know. We can work a reduced cleaning rate for you. It's a big house!

Where you’ll be

Excelsior, Minnesota, United States

The uniqueness of our neighborhood is that we have the lake on one side and a long driveway to the road. Thus, we only have 2 neighbors! We are on 3.6 acres and our backyard is a 100 acre lake. On the other side of the lake is all nature park land with lots of trails to walk or bike on. You can walk to downtown Victoria or take a 10 minute drive or 30 minute bike to downtown Excelsior. We are conveniently located close to all the amenities you need (grocery, gas, Target) but you will feel like you are in the country.

Our neighborhood is very private! There are just 30 homes on 1 acres lots on the lake and 1/3 of the lake is nature preserve. There are bike/walking trails right out the door. You will enjoy the peaceful, tranquil environment feeling like you're in the north woods but still be within 10 minutes of anything you need!

With the privacy of our neighborhood comes the desire of neighbors to have their privacy. Please do not go in neighbors yards. There’s plenty of room to wonder on our land and boundaries are pretty evident with fence and landscaping.

We are also very close a great dog park.

My husband and I love to travel and meet new people on our adventures. We have stayed at many AIRBNB spots around the world. One day it hit us that we should host! So here we are. We have a lovely spot on a private lake surrounded by park land yet just minutes away from fine dining and conveniences. We love to bike, hike, explore, drink Chardonnay (me) and craft beers from independent breweries (him). We enjoy chef-driven, farm-to-table restaurants, sampling different kinds of honey and having family over for Sunday brunch. We enjoy documentaries and he endures RomCom's with me! We enjoy all types of music and he loves to read about anything and everything. I'd rather go to the gym, go for a walk or garden than read but I love it when he shares all he's reading about and learning with me! Our favorite AirBNBs so far are "Gypsy House" in the Blue Mountain National Forest area in Australia for outside the US and "Emu Ranch in Town" in Atlanta for within the US! Check them out. Sometimes we love our privacy but most of the time we hope to meet and engage with our guests here and the hosts when we travel. It is just so interesting to meet people from different places with different experiences than ourselves. So, if you stay with us, feel free to reach out to us and we'll make time to chill on the patio over a glass of wine or beer with you. If we stay with you, let us know if you're open to conversation over a bottle of wine! We'll get the wine!
