We look forward to your visit to The Cabin on Amelia. In the heart of Central Minnesota’s lake country you will find the perfect place to enjoy a getaway with family and friends with something for everyone!

Lake Amelia is a 934 acre spring-fed lake with great water clarity. It is Pope County’s second deepest lake with a depth of 69 feet at its deepest point. The lake has something to offer for everyone. The public access is directly across the lake for your watercraft. Lake Amelia is perfect for swimming, fishing and water sports. The dock and lake shore shed are yours to use during your stay. You will enjoy fishing off the dock for pan fish and the occasional bass. The game fish sit on the edge of the drop-off very close to The Cabin. Just south of Amelia on State Highway 28 you will find a 24 hour bait shop.

The Cabin is a year around rental, located on a beautifully landscaped hill. With 150 feet of shoreline it has fantastic views of the lake and stunning sunsets. Our large yard is perfect for yard games and includes a swing set for the kids. Have fun on the lake with 2 paddle boards, 2 single kayaks, a paddle boat and a canoe available onsite during your stay. Enjoy outdoor seating on the lakeside with beautiful views. At the end of the day you will find that there is plenty of room around the fire pit to relax, roast marshmallows and tell fish stories.

Our home is really 2 cabins in 1! It consists of TWO 3 bedroom cabins separated by a 1200 sq. ft. common room. This area has two screened porches… one for relaxing with a good book or good company and one of which boasts a Foosball table, multi-use game table and large stand-up freezer. We also have a collection of board and yard games, something for everyone! The sunken living area is set up with a bar, refrigerator, electronic dartboard, Bluetooth enabled portable stereo, a large seating area and a big screen “smart” television with DVD player, Direct TV and Netflix. FREE Wi-Fi is included. You will have all of the room you need and plenty to do indoors and out!

Each side of the cabin has 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen and living room with fireplace for cool evenings. The North side has two bathrooms, 2 king size beds, a crib, 2 bunk beds and a pull-out couch. The South side has one bathroom, 2 king size beds and a full size bed. Laundry facilities can be found on both sides. The Cabin sleeps 16 comfortably with 20 max. Each kitchen is fully equipped, bedrooms are supplied with plenty of comfortable bedding and each bath is equipped with towels for your indoor use.

Just a few hours drive from the Twin Cities your vacation will begin! From Alexandria, it will take you about 20 minutes to reach the northern shore of Lake Amelia. Located in Pope County, the lake is about 4 miles northeast of Glenwood. Villard is just a few miles away. These communities are home to many wonderful parks, lakes, recreational areas, shopping and community events. What could be better than going to The Cabin!
