19.2 miles from Lake Pepin
Picture yourself at "Wolf's Run Lodge" on the clean and quiet waters of Reeds Lake! A year-round cabin nestled in an oak grove on the banks of a spring-fed lake (one of only two in Southern Minnesota). With 200 feet of lakeshore on a double lot, the cabin has plenty of room to play yard games, throw the football/frisbee around, or sit by the campfire and gaze at the lake. Perfect for family vacations or romantic getaways.
A 30 foot long deck spans the width of the cabin on the edge of a small bank which provides fantastic lake views, and still leaves only 16 steps from cabin to waters edge. With the cabin this close to the water and two sets of floor to ceiling windows facing the lake, you will never feel too far from the water.
A 20ft PONTOON is available for rent at a cost of $150/day or $500/week. The pontoon seats 10 with four bench seats and one captain chair; there is also a table and a shade canopy. The outboard motor is a 30 horsepower Mariner. 5 gallons of gas are included per rental.
Inside the cabin, there is a full kitchen, open dining room/living room, 1.5 bathrooms, wood fireplace, screened-in porch, kid's playroom, and bedroom. With cedar walls, fish kitchen cabinet knobs, and just the right amount of 1970's mismatched decor; you will truly feel like you are at a cabin and you can relax! There is also a whole home air conditioning system.
Sheets are provided, along with hand soap, and dish soap. Towels are not provided.
Additionally, there is also a grill provided.
