Cozy, Quiet Family Getaway in Longville, MN
The cabin has a well equipped kichen with gas stove, microwave and small refrigerator. You can sit in the cozy eating area and enjoy the stunning view of the lake. There is a brand new bathroom and a small family area for relaxing, watching TV or playing a game. All appliances are new.
We are tucked away from the noise of the lake by being at the end of a short channel - this gives us the best of both worlds -- quick access to the lake and all of the fun it offers and at the same time peace and quiet to simply observe without being in the middle of all the activity.
The cabin is at loft level, so there are stairs to climb for access, but that improves the view of the lake! You will have access to use of our dock, paddle boat and canoe. You can bring your own boat or rent one in Longville. The public boat launch is only 5 minutes away from our dock. There is also a fire pit where you can sit and enjoy the stars at night and look for fireflies while listening to the loons. This cabin is the perfect place to enjoy a smore at the campfire! If you have kids who are just getting introduced to the fun of fishing - they might catch their first sunny, bass, or blue gill right off the dock! We also have eagles, heron, and beavers who are frequent visitors to our lake front.
Girl lake is a small lake with access to the larger Woman Lake. On any given day you will see people on Girl taking a leisurely cruise on their pontoons, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, tubing or jet skiing. Most of these items are for rent in Longville.
We think this is the perfect place for your family to come and enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle. The owners are onsite and do have 2 dogs (a Lab and a Yorkie). The owner's dogs are the only pets permitted on the property.
This is the perfect spot for a getaway and a place where you can make some wonderful family memories. Longville is located on Girl Lake, which is part of the Woman Lake Chain. If you are someone who likes to fish --- the area is chock full of lakes of all sizes. You can fish a different lake every day if you'd like!
The area also offers great golfing, many scenic bike trails and opportunites for all sorts of shopping and antiqueing. If you like to get dirty and want to take your ATV out for a ride through the woods, there are lots trails available for you too. If you need to do laundry, Longville has a full laundromat in town.
The town of Longville is a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive from our cabin. Once in Longville, there is plenty to do. You can meet friends and have a cup of coffee or a crepe at one of the local shops. You can stroll down Main Street and do some shopping, get a bit of fudge, or stop in the library and borrow a book or a movie. If you are in need of bait or desire to rent a kayak or boat, it's all available in Longville. There are also several specialty shops where you can by unique souvenirs to take home. Longville also has a fun mini golf course complete with a water balloon battle area - it's a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.
After a day on the boat or a before calling it a day, we highly recommend a stop at Frosty's for some delicious ice cream or pizza. You can dock at the community boat access and enjoy dinner at Patrick's in Longville, or explore one of the other dining options in the area.

Really enjoyed our stay in Longville! The accommodations were very nice and away from the hustle and bustle. It was a short walk to town which was convenient and nice. The property owners were very kind and made our stay enjoyable. We made frequent use of the paddle boat and Girl lake. Had a wonderful time and would recommend this property. There were two of us and we had more than enough room and could have accommodated several more with the second bedroom.

The garage apartment was just what we needed for a few days to visit friends. It was cozy and clean and my family (2 adults, kids 9, 8, 1) was more than comfortable. Dee's family was very kind and generous and we would definitely stay again if we go back to the area.
