Book your stay in this beautiful home, with its own private sandy point on an entire acre with room to play in the water or out!

Enoy a view of the lake from every room in the house!This beautiful log-sided home sleeps 17 or more. We have comfortably housed our entire family of 17 with kids and grandkids during holidays, and know you could definately sleep more if you wanted to use blow up beds, which are available for use. The family room, kitchen, dining room, and sunroom offers an open floor plan for everyone to gather. Highspeed wireless internet access is available. The main floor of the home offers a gas fire place, 2 bedrooms and sunroom/extra bedroom, 2 full baths with jacuzzi tubs, main floor laundry, and a wrap around deck for easy access to the the yard and lake. The full walk-out basement has a cute and cozy bunk room that has six twin built-in log bunks, a couch and love seat, and room to use a full or queen sized blow up bed. The bunk room also has a full bathroom, and a television for watching movies or playing game cube. Includes a library of movies and games for kids to choose from. The bunk room is perfect for rainy days, as it is attached to a multi-purpose room, which is great for playing games, roller-blading, riding skooters, skate boarding, and just having a place for kids to go! Our grandkids love it on rainy days... and so do the adults! This mult-purpose has another full-sized bed, as well as room to put blow-up beds.

Bad Medicine has been voted as the 'Best Swimming Lake' in 2008, and our guests in the past have commented that the clarity and color of the water makes them feel like they are in the Caribian! The Bad Medicine Lake area is abundant with outdoor recreation: ATV and snowmobiling trails, biking and hiking trails, boating, waterskiing, tubing, wake boarding, and great walleye and trout fishing, as well as ice fishing are just a few of the endless choices. We are just 15 minutes away from the Itasca State Park where you can walk across the mouth of the Mississippi River!

30 minutes north of Park Rapids, which offers great shops for antiques and crafts, golf courses, movie theater, Evergreen Park for kids to ride go carts, mini bumper boats, play lazer tag, mini golf, and many other activities. There are several nice parks, and a skate board park for the kids to play. Bike the Heartland Trail to Dorset and enjoy your choice of Mexican, Italian, or American dining. We are also 30 miles north of Detroit Lakes, which has many resturants, mini golf, movie theater, shopping mall, four golf courses, and fun musical festivals such as 10,000 Lakes and of course WE FEST! We are also just 50 minutes south of Bemidji which offers great shopping, and access to Beuna Vista Ski Resort, which offers skiing, snowboarding, and tubing for all ages in the winter months!

In the summer enjoy the swimming on this beautiful and gradual sandy waterfront, which has grass to the water's edge for suntanning and just relaxing! A boat lift, paddle boat, canoe, 2 kayaks, and a swimming raft are available for use. Just bring yourself, your boat, life-jackets, skiis, tubes, and fishing rods for enless summer fun!
