Photos and Description of the Princeton vacation house rental

Fabulous local fishing, hunting, and recreational opportunities to choose from.

Sitting on nearly an acre of land on a dead-end road, this 2 story 1500+ sq. ft. lofted cedar home offers charm and privacy inside and out. It's post and beam construction, open design, 5 bedrooms (sleeps as many as 12+), fireplace, vintage baby grand piano, expansive windows, three decks and lakeside cottage offer beautiful places and spaces in which to relax, recreate or recoup during your enjoyable and memorable stay. Whether wanderer, sportsmen, couples, families or friends, we're sure you'll appreciate this unique home with its colorful history, multiple rooms and lively decor. Well appointed, it was designed and constructed to be used and enjoyed. The property offers convenience to multiple outdoor activities. At home, one can swim, paddle boat, canoe or kayak, play horseshoes, badminton, volley ball, laze around the fire, BBQ, or simply relax and curl up with a good book lakeside. Green Lake offers excellent fishing on its approximately 833 acres. 28 feet at its deepest, one can expect to catch bluegill, northern pike, walleye, and largemouth bass. If you love photography or simply critter-watching, you'll find plenty of opportunity without even leaving the yard as wildlife abounds with daily sightings of many of the following: fox, songbirds, heron, eagles, deer, turkeys, various species of ducks, loons, and geese. To see even more, take a 15 minute drive to the Sherburne Wildlife Refuge and Sand Dunes State Forest. All about the area you'll find numerous options for hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, canoeing, camping, cross country skiing, and community activities. Be sure to ask about local events.

Beautiful Green Lake is situated almost midway between Princeton and Cambridge providing convenient access to modern amenities while still retaining that private, small town feel. Approximately 1/4 mile south of Hwy 95, go south on Nacre, then left (east) onto 337th Lane NW(dead end). You will find the location convenient to gas stations, liquor store, bait shop, and convenience store, even two municipal airports should you choose to fly in! Dine at the Pine Brook Inn with its reputation for excellent food, imbibe at the Hi-Way Inn-known as the go-to spot for homemade pizza, bingo, meat raffles, Keys for Cash event and Friday night karaoke. Take a short, lazy canoe ride between the banks of the gorgeous and serene Rum River running between the two towns, or extend your adventure for a leisurely meander along its 151 mile course. The area is rich with arts and crafts, making the home a perfect getaway for weekend retreats and workshops. Be sure to stop by the Saturday Farmer's Market for delicious local products, check out the new Central MN Art Co-op in Princeton with its classes and gallery boasting fabulous local talent, and don't forget to treat the kids to a visit to the local splash park followed by a stop at Santa Lucia's for homemade ice cream. If you are hardy enough to choose a February stay during our MN winter, be sure to plan your visit to coincide with either the annual Mora Vasaloppet (a 3,000 participant cross country skiing event held less than 30 miles away) or the Princeton Lion's Club Annual Fishing Contest held right out front of the house on Green Lake (oodles of prizes). Whether as a skiing/fishing participant, or a spectator, you'll surely enjoy the activities and have plenty of stories to share with your less adventurous friends when you get home!
