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.

      So Monday my buddy sees a spike and 5 pointer sparring a little bit at 150 yards in a clear-cut. Gets a good rest with 25-06, shots the 5 and it goes down like a sack of hammers. Hikes up to it, pokes it's eye and not a wiggle. Sets down empty gunand finds a log to sit on 10 feet away with his back to it and validates his tag. Turns around and the buck is gone running over a hill 100 yards away and disappears over a hill. Small spot of blood where his head was laying. Must have deflected in the brush. He said it was out cold at least 15 minutes.😫

      I will be checking a couple lakes today and I know people have been ice fishing them

      As of yesterday forest lake has about 1 inch of ice, but there were still some open spots. Someone even launched their boat and went duck hunting out there.

      Last winter was not easy for me either but this winter I will be going to some other lakes that i use to fish with my grandpa. The only good bites I got on last winter were the ones the St. Cloud boys invited me on. I just reached out to get a custom ice rod from a guy near me. I am excited to see what he can do for me. I will post as often as I can and if I get on a good bite you could tag along if ya want.
