Cozy lakeside cottage that sleeps two, with level lawn space nearby that will fit two additional tents in your group. Dedicated private space is in lower level backyard with best view and access to dock*, lake and wildlife wetlands with boardwalk. You'll see the setting sun from the end of the dock and have a paver patio firepit with plenty of seating all to yourselves. Private 3/4 bath and comfortable TV room is 60 steps away in the house, and we are also offering a shared laundry for an additional charge. Mystic Lake Casino, Canterbury Downs & many other area lakes besides the 600 acre all sports lake that the property is located on are in the immediate area. For location purposes, we are located 3.5 miles S of the Prior Lake, MN McDonald's.
The basic price of $80 per night includes up to two campers inside or outside of the cottage, but up to two additional campers and tents are able to added to the reservation for $20 per person. A limit of two persons inside of the cottage and four persons total are allowed per reservation. Please note that all persons on the reservation must submit a copy of their valid picture government ID to the host (via text) prior to arrival (but after booking), and sign a watersports waiver upon check in. The host will discuss the procedure with you as HC supports pictures via real phone numbers accessed only on the app. Please ask prior to booking if you have any questions about this- this is a requirement of our short term rental insurance, and part of our self check in procedure.
We are a 100% smoke and pet (all animals) free property. We also do not allow any events, parties or children. The minimum age of campers allowed to book here is 23 and if you are bringing your children with you, they must be 18 plus and also must sign all waivers and provide their ID's.
This is a great place for a small, quiet gathering of your group with a private, clean bathroom and a lakefront location on a small acreage. However, it is for quiet getaways only, and is an owner occupied and monitored property.
If you have any questions regarding this listing, feel free to message the host before booking.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would definitely recommend my friends staying at Cozy Lakeside Cottage & Tenting. Lisa and Tom were great hosts. Thank you both for sharing your amazing space.
Great little staycation home.
Lisa was very warm and welcoming.
The cottage was cozy, quiet and peaceful. I stayed a few days and loved waking up in the comfortable bed, sunrise and beautiful sounds of nature (without being completely in nature).
Take the time to read the instructions. She has thought it all through. And if there is something not considered she was very accommodating.
The fridge is small but I made a stop at Trader Joes and purchased some small snacks; fruits and veggies, including 3 little frozen meals and they all fit.
This little cottage will be a regular in my local getaways.
Cottage out of a story book : )
The Cozy Lakeside Cottage is a gem. My fiance and I had a great time staying there. We enjoyed the quite, the fishing nearby, the night time sky. Lisa is a great host, and responds promptly should you have any questions. The amenities provided are above and beyond. This place is like out of a story book. Will be visiting the cottage "aka" gem, again. The Whiskey Inferno is a great place to dine, if looking for some great food.
Incredible a weekend to remember.
Incredible hosts, from the reservation to the end. We were looking for a nice quiet place to get away nearby for our 19th anniversary, we were greeted with a bottle of my favorite wine, cup cakes and anniversary candles. The host was helpful, answered all the questions, went above and beyond to make our stay special, they were friendly and welcoming, gave us the privacy we wanted and yet made us feel welcomed and invited. The property is absolutely beautiful, clean, decoration is amazing, the lake is quiet, neighbors are friendly as well and the dogs are adorable ❤️ We will go back and recommend 100%. Thank you for making our anniversary memorable and special.
Extraordinary camping experience
This was so nice and so close. Having a great bathroom and place to sleep was extraordinary. Our hosts were very attentive to anything we needed. We will be back.
