A private lake home rental or private cabin rental offers you the privacy of your exclusive retreat without the maintenance hassles of vacation home or cabin ownership. These Grand Rapids private rentals are managed or owned by local resorts so you get the professional services and quality standards you have come to expect from a resort vacation, but in a private setting. Trust your vacation to a well-managed and properly maintained quality rental.
These private Minnesota lake home rentals can be a great location for honeymoons, vacations, couple’s retreats, and family gatherings. Some are located adjacent to resort properties, others are a completely separate residence unto your own. Enjoy one of the simplest pleasures of Northern Minnesota life, the gift of overlooking a quiet lake in the morning or enjoying a rich, sparkling sunset in the evening.
