Karinall Estate is a peaceful property and a great setting for a family reunion, friends getaway, small wedding or even a corporate retreat. We can take care of the details for you. Karinall estate is located on Wymer Lake which is two miles south of Frazee, MN. Karinall is just 12 miles east of Detroit Lakes, 15 miles west of Perham, and 60 miles east from Fargo, ND. Because it is just 1.5 miles from Hwy 10, it is a great jumping-off point for a snowmobile trip, ice fishing extravaganza, widows hunting retreat, or anything else you can imagine. For the holidays, if you need a bigger house for your growing family, our home is perfect. Karinall is a great place to host your wedding. Check out the pictures from Mike and Chelsea's wedding.

Get lost in this 9.400 sq foot home with a sprawling deck. Each room is named and themed after some of the most classic books. This year-round paradise property offers fishing, puzzles, books galore, sunning on the dock, ice fishing, bird watching, canoeing, amazing sunsets, and so much more. It includes 8 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, and several reading nooks. Also, a large 16'x20' room overlooking the lakeside grounds offers the ideal space for a business meeting, scrapbooking, or yoga retreat. Karinall features a hot tub/exercise room, a pool table for entertainment, even an atrium with live trees, a waterfall, and bistro tables to visit or enjoy a cup of coffee. A walk-out patio overlooks the gentle slope to the lake. Roast a marshmallow over the fire pit and make a S’more! Have a piano player in the group? Gather around and sing along. Grab a glass of wine or a cup of hot chocolate and nestle around one of two stone fireplaces and reminisce with family, friends or co-works.

The living space is equipped with all your needs. We include all quality bedding, bathroom towels, all cookware, silverware, plates, cups, a Keurig, coffee pot, dishwasher, microwave, ovens, refrigerators, crockpots, a roaster, and a grill. All you need to do is bring food, beverages, and any personal products you may need. Remember to bring your favorite movies and watch them while you enjoy some popcorn (provided) in our theater for a big-screen experience! We include Netflix, Hulu, and WiFi.

Sleep well on high thread count linens, fluffy pillows, enjoy plush towels, and cozy throws for your stay. We even provide beach towels in the lower foyer for the summer months! There are life jackets as well. NOTE: there is no public access.

We recommend seeing the World’s Largest Turkey. It is on your way to Frazee, which is just 5 quick minutes away. Frazee also has a grocery store, drug store, liquor store, Ketter's Meat Market, and a gas station/convenience store. Or head to Vergas and see the World’s Largest Loon. Vergas has great shopping and restaurants too.

Let us take care of the details of making a reservation to celebrate that special occasion. One of my personal favorites is Spanky’s Stone Hearth which is three miles away. It offers fine dining. Everything on the menu is decadent and there is an extensive wine list. At Spanky’s sit by one of the stone fireplaces or in a booth overlooking Rose Lake. Golf trip in order? Let us make a tee time at one of our local golf courses. Want a private yoga class, we can arrange that too. Kari lives on Wymer Lake and is a Yoga instructor who trained in Guatemala. We also invite you to relax, rejuvenate, and unwind to a soothing massage during your stay. We’ve partnered with a talented certified massage therapist who will travel to the Karinall Estate (pre-booking required).

Don’t feel like cooking after a day on the water or ice? Visit one of the area’s “must try” restaurants. Zorbaz is a Minnesota favorite for Mexican or pizza. It is casual dining. Zorbaz is just a 15-minute drive to the east or west. Or if you are in the mood for burgers or a Bloody Mary, try out Billy’s Bar in Vergas. Skal is great too. There are many more amazing restaurants nearby, just let me know what you're in the mood for and I can give you a few recommendations. If you want food catered in or would like me to come to cook for you at Karinall, just ask about my availability and menu.

Winter is a great time for vacationing in the area. Enjoy snowshoeing or cross-country skiing around Wymer Lake. There are also endless miles of snowmobile trails. Detroit Mountain is 15 minutes away if you want to hit the slopes for some downhill skiing, snowboarding, or tubing. They have biking and hiking trails in the summer months.

When you first arrive at Karinall, I (Heather) will be there to greet you and help you get acquainted with the property. You can call or text me anytime with questions. Marlys (The property owner) stays in the three-bedroom apartment above the garage, which has a separate entrance. She is a spunky lady with a great sense of humor. You will love her. She can also answer any questions you may have. We can’t wait for you to visit Karinall Estates. It will be something you and your family or friends will want to make an annual event.
