LAKEFRONT EXECUTIVE HOME RENTAL ON PLUM LAKE

2011-06-29 17.42.15

Plum Lake Station Executive Home is a 4 bedroom 4 bath 4500SF home on the east end of Plum Lake (incredible sunsets!) available for short term rentals in the summer and/or monthly rentals in the winter.  It sports a lovely sand beach and marina with boathouse, a lake side fire pit, charcoal grill, paddle boat, canoes, and row boats for your use.  There is a 22′ pontoon available for rent.  Fishing is excellent summer or winter (some of the best ice fishing on Plum is right off the shore!).

The upper level of Station has a full walk out lakeside deck complete with a large deck table for dining and chairs.  The living room has a Vermont Casting gas stove for ambiance.  It is an open space Great Room so there are no walls separating the dining room (with a table that comfortably sits 10), living room, and fully equipped kitchen complete with gas stove, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, large bar seating area and wet bar.  There are 3 bedrooms on this level.  The master bedroom has a king bed, large walk in closet, bath with shower, and walk out to the deck. The smallest bedroom has a queen bed.  The bath is across the hall and has a tub/shower combo.  The bedroom on the other side of the living room has a queen bed, a bath with shower and walk out to the deck.

The lower level walk out to the lake is Station’s Party Place!  It has a full bar complete with dishwasher, refrigerated “kegger” (keg not included), and ice maker.  There is a pool table and ping table for your enjoyment as well as a small library area (okay, may that’s not party stuff) and a rare collection of 60’s & 70’s LP’s for your use.  The cozy seating area next to the bar has a gas fireplace with DirecTV – the perfect place to watch the Packers (or the Bears or Vikings or Lions – this just hurts too much, I must stop!). The bathroom on this level has a walk in shower.  The bedroom (which many use as the kids’ room) sports 2 log bunk beds with twin and full sized beds and a day bed with a trundle as well as a large walk in closet.  This room has it’s own walk out to the lake.  This level also houses the laundry room with washer & dryer for your use as well as an iron and ironing board (I know, I’d rather not either – but, well, sometimes its necessary. Sigh…).

Wildlife abounds in these parts.  We’ve had a bull moose wander along the waterfront, watched eagles teaching their young to fly, listened to the haunting songs of the loons, chased the blasted geese off the lawn and watched the wolf couple cross the lake (in winter/on ice).  And then there’s the deer – beautiful to behold (but awful when they get into the garden)!

We are pet friendly, kid friendly and family friendly!  We’ve hosted family reunions, weddings, themed parties, birthday celebrations, snowmobiling gatherings, fishing buddies outings, just for gals weekends and equestrian & corporate retreats. What do want to do?
