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.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
