Spend a weekend on the 13th largest Minnesota lake, known for everything from Walleye to Crappies, Sunfish, Bass and Northern. I have caught then all here, but you don't have to fish however, to enjoy this beautiful lake, lovely area and all it has to offer. Feel free to bring your own boat, a canoe or kayak, bike, and whatever lawn games you might have got for some fun outdoors on the property ... We may be renting a pontoon to cruise & fish or simply relax on the cruise and enjoy the scenery for Saturday, or Sunday. There are also fishing boats to rent for 2 or 3 people either day.

Private lake home on Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood, MN. Excellent lake for swimming, fishing, boating, sailing, beautiful sunsets, golf nearby, biking trails, fire pit, and horseshoes. Relax, eat, unwind, take in nature, read a few good books or put your camera and binoculars to good use ....
