About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

After driving through beautiful central Minnesota farm country, visitors are taken by surprise when they reach the thick woods and meandering dirt road that lead to this secluded property on Norway Lake, two hours west of Minneapolis and 20 minutes north of Willmar. The house is situated on a smaller part of Norway Lake, affectionately known as Little Norway, and is accessible to Games Lake to the north and Norway Lake to the south. The house is 'off the grid' 3/4 of a mile down a hard packed dirt road on Little Norway Lake.

Little Norway R&R is 2000 square feet of light-filled space, uncluttered and open, with amenities for a comfortable getaway. The vaulted great room and adjoining sitting room overlook the lake. The master bedroom also faces the lake and has a queen bed and private bath with jetted tub and separate shower. The second and third bedrooms face the front yard and woods beyond, with a queen and two extra long twin beds respectively. There are a total of 2 1/2 bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock pot and basic spices and ingredients, and guests are welcome to use the outdoor gas grill. A washer and dryer and are on site. Other features are central air, a gas fireplace, satellite TV, internet, and cell coverage for Verizon and AT&T.

This home shares the west side of Little Norway with just three other properties. Summer guests enjoy a mowed yard with patio, fire pit with provided logs and kindling, screened porch, and private lake shore. An environmentally friendly shoreline buffer zone consisting of native plants was installed by Prairie Restorations, Inc. in 2013. Fish off the dock or use the two kayaks or the canoe to explore the chain of lakes. Paddle through the narrow channel into Games Lake then over to its excellent swimming beach. The more adventurous can continue into Swan Lake with a quick portage. Take a morning run or an evening walk through the woods out to the main road, a 3 mile loop.

There is much to do in the area including shopping, a winery, a craft brewery, live theater, music, golfing, birding, farmers’ markets, biking trails… and the list goes on. The owners can suggest activities based on guests’ interests. Stop by Three Sisters at the Intersection of County Road 9 and Highway 71 (5 miles away) for beautiful locally made furniture and home décor. For those whose tastes run more toward military surplus and live bait, or if you need a fishing license, Pete’s shares the parking lot right next door to Three Sisters. It also has a small convenience store to pick up that forgotten item or a newspaper. Neighboring Sibley State Park has miles of trails, a fishing pier, an interpretive center, and a swimming beach. The Glacial Lakes State trail runs nearby. Bring your bikes and explore all or part of the paved 22 mile route. New London (10 miles away) offers a bakery, ice cream shop, wonderful cafes, unique boutique stores, and for the engineer in the family, an intriguing dam over the Little Crow River. Most Friday nights in the summer, New London hosts a ski show on the Little Crow. Visit the city of Spicer for a houseboat cruise on Green Lake or a casual lunch on the beach at Zorbaz. For an unforgettable evening, make a reservation at Spicer Castle for their famous Murder Mystery Dinner.

For winter visitors, Little Norway R&R is a peaceful retreat. Relax near the two sided gas fireplace, or enjoy miles of nearby snowmobile trails and cross country skiing.
