Photos and Description of the Prior Lake vacation cottage rental

Large Lake Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Relax with family and friends enjoying the sunsets over Prior Lake! 4 Bedroom and 3 Bathroom Prior Lake Cottage with over 180 feet of Private Lake Frontage

Cottage History: In the 40's Harlen Anderson, a first generation American Swede bought this land from a farmer who thought this property was worthless because it was near the lake. The large boulders on the property were removed from the farm field for plowing and placed along the lake shore. The original cabin was what is now the bedroom with the fireplace & one of the little sheds along the side of the house was their biffy. When Harlen married Peggy they built the rest of the home. The wood used to build this cottage was from surrounding trees on the property; at that time there were no roads to get down here. The beams are from a pier in Duluth. The bricks on the sidewalk and patio are from Harlens old schoolhouse in Iowa. The staircase is from an old mansion on Summit Ave. in St Paul. The stain glass windows are from an old church. The plaque Wren Cliff outside the back door was the idea of Peggy's since she loved romance novels and in those books the estate usually had a name. Harlen loved trees and planted many on the property- the black walnut trees are 60-70 years old.

Liberty Bell Cottage: This newly furnished cottage is perched on small bluff with stunning southern view overlooking white pines on the hill side and Prior Lake. Since the cottage is above the lake it minimizes the boat noises and maximizes the serenity surrounding this cottage. The lake shore is accessible by everyone, either a private wooden staircase in the backyard or a shared private road one house down. The property adjacent to the lake is flat with two stepping stones into the lake. The cottage includes a private dock, row boat, kayaks, paddle boat and paddle board, bikes and yard games.

Prior Lake: This vacation home is located on the Northern side of Lower Prior Lake. Lower Prior Lake is 956 acres with a maximum depth of 60 feet. Upper Prior Lake is 386 acres with a maximum depth of 50 feet. Prior Lake is located in the City of Prior Lake in Scott County, Minnesota. Lower Prior Lake connects with Upper Prior Lake via a navigable channel that passes under Eagle Creek Ave. The lake is primarily managed for walleye and largemouth bass and secondarily managed for northern pike and bluegill. It is a wonderful recreational lake for any family to enjoy. There is a lakeside restaurant/pub with boat parking, boat rental and gas dock available on Prior Lake.
