About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Emma’s Spectacle Lake Home is located on the clear and beautiful 239 square acre Spectacle Lake, eight miles west of Cambridge, Minnesota.

Longing for a North Woods retreat but don’t want to spend precious vacation hours on the highway? Emma’s Spectacle Lake Home is the place for you. Travel just one hour north of the Twin Cities to historic Isanti County where the wild and scenic Rum River runs for 153 miles, old growth stands of White Pine dot the landscape, pristine lakes and unspoiled wetlands thrive, and abundant and varied wildlife are plentiful. All of this combines to provide the classic North Woods experience.

Whether you are looking for a quiet couple’s getaway or an activity-packed family holiday, Emma’s Spectacle Lake Home offers many varied opportunities for enjoyment and relaxation.

Staying In…

Emma’s Spectacle Lake Home is a great place to unwind and renew. Let the magnificent sunrises welcome you on one of the two enclosed porches, the walkout patio or the open deck. Expect to hear the call of loons and maybe get a glimpse of a Deer, Grouse, Bald Eagle, Crane or Owl making their way to and from the Spectacle Lake Wildlife Management Area. Ready to take a swim or do some fishing? Just walk down to the 100 feet of preserved natural shoreline and the sandy bottom lake. Catch Sunnies off the dock or take your boat out on the lake for Northern Pike, Bluegill, Walleye, and Largemouth Bass. (There is a public, concrete, boat launch located not far from the house.) For dinner, light the BBQ and dine on the deck, one of the 2 porches or the patio then move down to the fire pit for s’mores and stargazing. When it’s time for bed, throw open the windows and be lulled to sleep by a lake breeze and the water lapping the shore. If the weather turns inclement, curl up by the fireplace, pop in a DVD or VHS and play a game or just relax and listen to the rain.

Going Out….

While the Emma’s Spectacle Lake Home offers the opportunity for total relaxation and rejuvenation, the area offers so much more. Grab your clubs and play one or more of the twelve beautiful golf courses in the area, or bring your hiking boots and bicycle and take advantage of the multitude of spectacular trails and parks. Rent a canoe and paddle down the picturesque and protected Rum River, take a swim at the township’s public swimming area with its welcoming sandy beach or soak up a little history visiting the many Isanti County historical sites dating back to the mid 1800’s. In the evening, have a great meal in town and visit the eclectic shops and antique stores.

The Basics…..

The home’s amenities include: 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 kitchens with dish washers and microwaves, 2 great rooms with TV/DVD players, a laundry room, 2 enclosed porches, an open deck, a walkout patio, a gas fireplace, 2 gas BBQs, and a fire pit. If the weather gets too warm there is air conditioning to keep you cool. The home sleeps up to 6 people comfortably (utilizing the futon in the great room) and the family dog is more than welcome!


Let Emma’s Spectacular Lake Home provide you a perfect retreat from the world. Just 50 miles from the twin cities, you are only minutes away from exploring nature’s plentiful gifts. Enjoy a North Woods experience, quality lodging, and the pleasure of “lake living” all in a clam and settled neighborhood.
