Needing a Cabin - fractional ownership or rent...long term

Recommended Posts

Bigguyone

Finally got the wife to agree to a cabin. Thinking with this economy there are some great options and this may help you or a friend out.

Looking for a cabin that I can go to the same place on a consistent basis. I live out of state so I will only spend about 4-6 weeks at the cabin (since have to fly up). Looking for a 3bd cabin on a great bass lake - Pike and Musky are a BONUS.

Would like the cabin to include a boat with it that is at least 17' and at least 75hp (non-tiller).

I am not dialed in to one particular area or lake as I am thinking anything within 2.5 hours of Fargo and MSP (probably Fergus falls, alexandria or maybe Bemidji/Walker area if have to go that far) so I have 2 airports to choose from when I fly in).

I am willing to do discounted rental (due to paying for multiple weeks) or a fractional ownership where I pay a lump sum upfront and then an annual amount to help with maintaining the property and have 10% ownership or so. For example someone could have a cabin worth about 200k and I would pay 25k up front plus an annual "maintainance" fee to help out with the costs of upkeep.

If you or a friend has a cabin you think would benefit both of us from an arrangement similar to one of the above do let me know if you would please at [email protected]

Thank you in advance for your help.

If your 4-6 weeks are in the June,July and August than 10% is way to low for buying fractional ownership. Even though I enjoy our cabin all year long, there are only 16 great weeks at the cabin. But if you were going to use a week in January, March, June, September and November than that might be right. Good luck

Have you looked at vrbo dot com? These are people wanting to rent their cabins out. I often see people wanting to rent for longer periods. You may find something there.

Was thinking 10% ownership in it so I would get about 5 weeks a year (spreadout) and pay about 15% of the value of the cabin + annual fees to get this...

Been looking at finding some good cabins to rent that include a boat - if you know any of those do let me know as well.

I have one cabin I have found that I have my eye on I could purchase 100% ownership as it is a very good priced trailer on a large lot.

Good luck Bigguy smile make sure to check out the neighbors of any place you are looking at. That can make the experience much better or much worse, depending wink

I think I would look at a park model RV on a seasonal lot at S. Turtle Lake Resort east of Underwood MN. 1:15 drive from Fargo. I believe there are 3 nice units for sale there. $20K buys you a real nice unit. Seasonal lot rent is around $1900.00 and includes water, sewer, dock spot, mowing, etc. Simply show up, and crack a beer. We had a unit there until last spring, when we purchased a year around home on S. Ten Mile Lake.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
