Beautiful huge and spacious property perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. We had 10 guys on a cousins golfing and poker playing weekend. We'd stayed previous years at a resort on the Lake which was great but getting a bit small. I reached out to the owners of this house and was not disappointed. There was something for everyone. Pool tables, Foose Ball and a great kitchen with multiple refrigerators and multiple bathrooms. For those with children there is a LOT of space to run around and soft carpet for babies to crawl on hands and knees. We used the amazing deck and loved that it walked us right down to the dock where a few of us swam on a very sandy floored lake. I am 6 ft 3 in and the water was not past my chest for over 300 yards so the Lake is perfect for small kids as well. Beds were comfy. Clean sheets and blankets and pillows and all the untensils and dishes you need are there. Otter Tail is only 5 minutes away so you can get items you may have forgotten. Totally worth the cost. Thanks guys.

A week at Ottertail Lake July 28-August 4, 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16 spent a week at this spacious lakeside home. Weather was great, accommodations more than adequate for 9 adults and 7 children. It was my intent to have my four sons, their wives, and seven grandchildren share memorable times together away from their usual busy lives. This location more than met our expectations. We swam, pontooned, paddleboarded, shared meals together all in a beautiful setting. We were joined one afternoon by my siblings and their families for a reunion. Beds were comfortable, linens provided were more than adequate. I would highly recommend for a stay for your family get together at the lake! The Welle family was great to work with in setting up this special family outing! Thank you from all of us.

This place is amazing!!! We celebrated our 40th Anniversary here with all our children and grandchildren. There was plenty of room for everyone. The outside griddle worked great in the mornings. Eagles would soar over head or dive down in front of us and grab a fish. The grands were able to walk out to the float, find shells, play in the sand, enjoy a fire at night, play pool, put puzzles together on the ledge in the living room overlooking the lake. It is every bit as beautiful as the pictures and more. We were blessed to find it, blessed with amazing weather, blessed with a great family vacation, and blessed with 40 years. Thank you.....

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this place. It had plenty of space for our group of 15. They had the cabin supplied with everything we needed. We are hoping to make this place a yearly event. We rented this place in February but would love to see it in the summer.

Great Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our annual family vacation and this year we were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful, relaxing location. The house is beautiful with so much room for everyone. We had 13 family members and there was room for all & then more. The lake location was wonderful for relaxation, fishing and family fun. The deck area was very well used by all. The lake shore area was sandy, clean & perfect. Fishing was not great but we did catch a few from the dock and more in the boat. The fishermen had a great time anyway. The kitchen was very well supplied and certainly met all of our needs. Beds were comfortable and linens provided were very nice. Would certainly recommend this location to others for a great vacation place. The owners were very easy to work with so the entire experience was wonderful!!!

Nearest Golf
5 Miles
Thumper Pond & Balmoral
Car: recommended

If you like pizza, Zorbaz is a great place on Ottertail Lake to eat. If you love to golf there are 2 courses within 5 miles of our lodge. Both courses are challenging and fun to play. If you have kids there is a wonderful ice cream store in Battle Lake called Granny's Pantry. Battle Lake also has a grocery store, several restaurants, several bars, a bait shop, and a liquor store. Our property is approximately 12 miles from Battle Lake. There is a nice hospital located in Perham, which is 15 miles north of our lodge. Perham also is a great town to visit.
