Country Serenity Retreat-Private, Peaceful by the River

Adults-only vacation home in Waverly
We have a wonderful and peaceful place for family gatherings nestled down a hill, in a private cul de sac, and on a river-and the other side of the river is uninhabited DNR land-it doesn’t get more private!

Ideal for small company leadership or church staff retreats as well. 21.5 acres of land up against 1500 feet of river frontage. Take time to truly “be present” and enjoy your family with cookouts, fishing along the river , or reading in solitude. Quiet clubs like scrapbooking, or nature enthusiasts will enjoy 16.5 acres of unplatted land. All of this, and only ~30 miles from the Twin Cities! You’ll feel
Like you are hours away. Some have shared that it has a very ‘up north’ feeling-probably due to the cabin with high quality log furniture throughout. 4 queen beds-2 of them have twin log bunks. All beds except the master are made of Minnesota pine-the State Tree.

For the enjoyment of all future guests, no smoking of any kind of tobacco, and no pets are allowed for any VRBO/Home Away reservations. Thank you.
Guest accommodations at this vacation home offer air conditioning.

Relaxing in the woods
We had a wonderful stay at this property and the amazing location. If you are looking for a get away where you can get to nature without a long drive from the Cities, this is your spot.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, serene property
We had a lovely weekend in Waverly celebrating our mom’s 60th birthday. The cabin was adorable, comfortable and welcoming. It’s well equipped with everything you’d need for your stay and then some! Photos don’t do this cabin justice. We loved the large deck and wraparound porch, yard games under the willow tree and fishing in the river. Carlton is a thoughtful, engaged host who does whatever he can to make your stay a relaxing one.

5/5 Excellent

We had a wonderful weekend unplugged from the chaos of city/work life!
Being able to sit on the beautiful wrap around deck, fish by the river and just plain relax from the day to day was so very much needed! We had a wonderful early anniversary weekend and truly enjoyed our stay!

5/5 Excellent

Girls Weekend
Lovely, country oasis! Great location for a girls getaway weekend.

4/5 Good

Well appointed cabin in a private location
The cabin had everything we needed and plenty of space, including a great deck. The owner was proactive in communication and made us feel at home. The home could really sleep 10 in beds if you can put 2 in each queen. Would like to have had more outdoor furniture to take advantage of the deck. It was very private and quiet, which was nice for us to be able to get some time away from our large family at a wedding. Small notes: There is no wifi or cable, this is on purpose, but think that should be more clearly stated these days. Cell service was good out on the deck, but very spotty inside. iPhones had a little trouble finding the right house on the map, but I thought it was very easy in and out and the road was well maintained. I found it odd to be asked to take our trash with us, especially as we were 6 people there for 3 days.
