The Cottage

For Rent: Historic Ely Lake Cottage


Brightwater owner Bill Damberg’s grandparents purchased this beautiful cottage in 1938. In 1989, his father, an architect, renovated it, added a gourmet kitchen and a master suite, with a bunk room below. The house sits high on a peninsula that runs perfectly north and south. The sun rises over the a vista of the lake on one side, and sets over the dock and swim beach on the other. We are pleased to now share this historic family lake home as a vacation rental. You’ll find family heirlooms, Persian rugs, and fine furnishings, all in a cozy cottage set in the beautiful north woods of Minnesota. See link or look up VRBO #1420121 for rental information.
