1400 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Deanna
7 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 1 Bathroom


Relax and enjoy the comfort and charm of this family friendly cottage on scenic Lake Pokegama. Located 1 hour north of the Twin Cities, this vintage inspired 2-bedroom, 1 bath vacation rental cottage has been family owned since 1946. It offers all of the amenities of home (free wifi, Alexa, technology charging station, dishwasher) and all the relaxation and beauty of "lake life".

Located on the eastern shore of the lake, the cottage offers stunning sunsets, 75 feet of lakeshore, and plenty of lawn to enjoy bonfires and yard games. A fully fenced in back yard, swing set, and sandbox provide fun for the kids while the parents relax.

Use the public boat launch and anchor your boat to the private dock or use the provided canoe and paddleboat to explore the 1,500-acre lake.

Pokegama Lake boasts 2 restaurants (both accessible by car or boat), 2 boat launches, and access to the Snake River and Cross Lake.

Deanna & Luke Steiner purchased this house in 2016

Why Deanna & Luke Steiner chose Pine City

This heirloom property has been family owned for over 74 years and is the perfect place to make memories of your own. The oldest part of the building was built in the 1800's and was at one time used as a farm outbuilding (for grain storage and chickens!). It has also seen use as a one room school house and even a place to build a boat during the winter! Purchased by Deanna's family just after WWII, it has gone through multiple additions and modernizations throughout its history. Today, it stands as a cozy and charming cottage on Lake Pokegama, ready for you to relax and spend time with family.
