This is it!
You have finally found a lake cabin that you can afford!
Summer is in full swing and it's a GREAT time to buy lake property!!
This place can sleep up to 12 people!
Six in the cabin and six in the RV!
Our 2 bedroom seasonal cabin is for sale and it also includes a Park Model on the RV lot!
But WAIT...There's more!
We completed Ottertail County's application for a screen porch to be built over the deck. It's been approved and just waiting to be built. The building permit stays with the property and is NOT transferrable.
You can enjoy a screened-in bug-free oasis!

This cabin sits back from the busy and noisy beach. There are ample trees around the cabin to provide a quieter, cooler, shaded respite from the glaring, hot sunshine.
This is the view from our deck looking south toward the lake.
Is 2019 the year you FINALLY buy your seasonal lake cabin?

Ready for an affordable lake cabin?
This cabin is ready for YOU!
Owner/Broker is selling this cute, fully remodeled 2 BEDROOM seasonal cabin on Middle Leaf Lake in Otter Tail County Minnesota.
Included is a 1998 Park Model.
What was once a family resort has been converted to a Common Interest Community (CIC) Association (#43). There are only seven other units in the association.
The CIC is governed by state statutes as found in the Declaration and By-Laws. All local, state and federal laws apply.
We've owned this cabin 14 years, but things change and it's time for a new adventure.
This cabin purchase also includes one Recreational Vehicle site!
You know how you never have enough room for extra company? Now you do!
A 1998 Breckenridge 1 BR Park Model is already set up on the RV lot!
Now you will have room for lots of summer guests!
The RV lots had an $11,000 upgrade of water/ sewer/electric the fall of 2011 - it's almost brand new! So, it's like having an extra cabin at the lake!
Right on the beach is a roomy community building for the exclusive use of Association members.
Association dues vary from year to year, depending on how much maintenance/repair is needed in the association . (Roughly $1400-1800/yr the last few years.) Those dues include real estate taxes, common area insurance, common area maintenance/improvements and casualty insurance on your cabin. Each owner is responsible for insuring their own personal items and maintenance of their cabin and surrounding area.
Lawn care is usually taken care of by the owners as we have a new riding lawn mower. This saves the Association owners money.
There are four docks which are privately owned by current Association members.
Two boats per dock.
This is a great recreational lake! It's part of a 3-lake chain: West Leaf Lake, Middle Leaf Lake, and East Leaf Lake. They are connected by culverts so, unfortunately, you can't navigate from lake-to-lake by boat.

While the cabin is insulated for use late into the fall, the association shuts off the water and winterizes the cabins in early to mid-October and turns water on again in May (both depend on weather).
There is an electric baseboard heater in each of the two bedrooms which offers plenty of heat from early spring to late fall.
None of the cabins in this Common Interest Community are suitable for year 'round use.
At the beach.
(this was taken when the lake level was low - in 2019 it is high)
The Association club house is right on the sand beach.
Picture yourself relaxing here during the summer!
Area boasts of great golfing, fishing and hunting. But this is a fun lake for the water skier, swimmer or recreational boater.
The city of Ottertail is 7 miles to the west on State Hwy #108. You can do your banking, get bait, have lunch, visit the hardware store and buy groceries there.
