We're trying to find a cottage/cabin to rent fairly close to Minneapolis to combine a family visit with a relaxing vacation this summer, but we don't know the area at all, and there seem to be a million lakes around. Any suggestions of where to look? Or specific websites to check? We'd like to be within an hour of the city, if possible, and would like a woodsy, secluded feel.

Anyone here familiar with the area?

I've BEEN to Minneapolis.

But in your case, I'd suggest www.vbro.com (http://www.vbro.com). It's a website of people who own condos and cabins that rent them out. We used the site when we went to Hilton Head and found a wonderful condo right next to the beach for $99 a night.

The nice thing is that you can pick out one you like and call the owner directly. And he or she will let you know the particulars of where the location is compared to where you want to be before you commit to anything.

It's worth a look, imo.
