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.

      Fished a small west metro lake this afternoon.  Shallow was 6-7 inches, about 5 inches out in the middle, good solid ice.  This lake locked up early and didn't get messed up by wind or warm temps.  I drilled holes as I went just to keep checking the ice, since it was our first time out for the year.

      I stayed on the ice this afternoon and out of the woods.  I watched the sun fade with the last day of the ML season with mine in the truck at the access.   The darndest thing: the fishing was terrible.  Kept hoping I’d find em or it would pick up in the evening.  Neither really happened. 😔     Still, it’s been a good hunting year.  Thanks all of you that shared your season here!

      You may get two of these warm and waterproof, or waterproof and dexterity but you may be hard press to get all three as dexterity is hard to get with the other two in a glove.  The best I have been able to do is some Duck hunting gloves which aren't cheap.

      Sunday evening report: Set up in 27 fow on 10 inches of ice off the West end of Ely island. I  fished from 2:40-5:00 tonight. Caught 4 and missed 2 more on the set line. Tossed everything back, about an 8 , 11, 13 and 15 inch fish. One on set line with plain red hook and chub near bottom and 3 jigging (one on a macho minnow and 2 on a flyer). Had a couple other good marks that didn't commit. Lots of wheeled/skid houses pulled out this weekend all over Mckinley/big bay area. About 3-4 inches of snow so good for travel with sleds or wheelers.

      Yah, that’s a tough situation @Kettle.  Neoprene are pretty much the trend but they still aren’t magic.  I bought a pair of diving gloves and they’re much better than any standard fishing glove.     I bet those Simms are nice.   Try to find a pair that fits well but aren’t too snug, and possibly have a breathable back.  
    • Wanderer
      Agreed, there always seems to be some geese over wintering.  I continue to see geese flying around and roosted in open rivers.  Swans too.  Had a pair circle me tonight while I was ice fishing.  It’s getting to be an ordinary thing - seeing swans in the winter.

      Went out last night for sturgeon. Considering it was my first outing of the year, I did okay with a couple sub-30" fish. Saw some dandies.

      It's making ice but there were some pretty large open areas tonight
