El lugar

Treetops Cottage is 520 sq. ft. The cottage is a non-smoking and no pet for two people with a bedroom with a queen bed, a small dining room, living room with Dish TV, kitchenette, bathroom with tiled shower, and a large screened porch overlooking the lake. Treetops Cottage is perched on the edge of the bank extending out into the treetops. The cottage has four ceiling fans for cooling, and two wall heaters for cool mornings.
This is our private estate, not a resort, so it is quiet and peaceful, ideal for a couple who enjoy reading, writing (the owner is an author), and the out-of-doors.The boat launch is one mile away, and Pelican Lake has excellent fishing for walleye and bass. There is no dock on the property. The shallow swimming area is soft sand below the cottage. Bring your guitar or banjo and serenade the night fisherman trolling for walleyes or participate in the local open mic night at a local arts center.

Disponible para huéspedes

There are four golf courses within 15 miles, over fifty miles of paved biking/hiking nearby, 100's of small lakes in the area, a large egret nesting area at the base of the property, watch the white pelicans and cormorants fish together, and observe the occasional bald eagles. The Ashby area has live music and a farmer's market in the park once a week, a nearby arts center has open mike and free entertainment twice a month, several museums within a few miles, hike to the top of Inspiration Peak, wonderful restaurants throughout the area, 25 miles to Alexandria for touristic action and shopping.

Atención a los huéspedes

We live on the property during the summer and enjoy gardening, fishing, and playing cards. We have great free dock fishing within 2 miles of our property where you will catch northern pike and bluegills galore. We have a campfire circle overlooking the lake plus adirondack chairs and a log swing for your pleasure enjoying the marvelous view . Because we are located on the north shore, we have sun most of the day (the cottages are under large oak trees), the breeze usually blows toward our shore, and thus, we have few mosquitoes. The Ashby Senior Center plays whist every Friday afternoon. Regular bingo is available nearby. We often catch the casino bus for a nominal fee and travel with friends for a great time together. Consider yourself invited to all events!
No pets nor smoking on the property.

Clean and cozy cabin in the treetops and listening to the water lap the shore. Happy that we choose it.

Dave and Betty are excellent hosts and offer quality cabins at a great value! Their place on Pelican Lake is very nice and the beautiful park and stream across the quiet street is a bonus! We really enjoyed our stay!

David and Betty were wonderful hosts. They were quick to respond to any questions/requests. Treetops Cottage is a small slice of heaven. My husband and I were looking for quiet, nature and relaxation - which we found all 3 in abundance. We enjoyed the screened in porch for early morning coffee and sunset wine. The sound of the lake lapping on the shore was therapeutic, while the proximity of the family estate to the Central Trail (biking) was convenient and easily accessible. Ceiling fans in all of the rooms kept the air moving and the cottage cool. David and Betty reside in the 4th cottage (3 down) so are close by if you need anything, but were not intrusive in any way. Everyone in the area was very friendly - the genuine "smile and wave as you walk/drive by" kind. We spent time in Alexandria, MN and found the drive from Ashby to be around 20 mins - not bad at all. Each cottage is equipped with it's own propane bbq grill, which we used for several meals, full-size fridge/freezer, microwave and electric burner (plug-in set of 2). There is no oven in the cottage, but the estate provides a shared oven that is in the unattached garage. The only drawback is that David and Betty are selling the cottages, so they'll be going, going, gone. I would definitely suggest grabbing a reservation before it's too late!

We loved David and Betty's place, for its location, cleanliness and quietness; David and Betty are gracious hosts that made our stay very comfortable; the cottage is an in an enviable location, and allowed us retreat and rejuvenation. We'll be back!

David & Betty had told us that they were going to be gone when we arrived and left a key and welcome letter for us. The cottage was absolutely perfect! It was a quiet, quaint, escape from the hustle & bustle of city life. They had wonderful pamphlets created giving descriptions about nearby attractions and event, shared their fire pit, & overall were just wonderful hosts. They are one of the most pleasant couples I've ever met & we greatly enjoyed our stay in their cottage.

I found exactly what I was looking for in a retreat by the lake: a delightful, immaculate cottage with perfect screen porch, lake access, a bedroom that felt like a tree house nestled in leaves with birds right outside the window, and fresh flowers on the table when I arrived. This Pelican Lake is not heavily populated, so the serene waters felt like they were all mine. It's close to scores of other lakes and towns like Fergus Falls and Alexandria with good restaurants and attractions like the Kensington Runestone. Dave and Betty were attentive and accessible hosts that gave me the space I needed for the perfect retreat. Thank you, both!

This was a GREAT little place to stay. Quiet, right on the lake, a fantastic little screened in porch, and incredibly clean! Loved it!

My wife and I are retired teachers from International Schools. We love to travel, play bridge, fish, and ski in the winter. We especially enjoy meeting the public. When you stay with us, you become part of the family when we have campfires, projects, or take you fishing. We also provide information on the local activities, best fishing and hiking areas, and funky little restaurants. We are not a resort, but a small family estate on a beautiful lake where we rent out the cottage when our children are not with us.
