It is just 20 miles to Itasca State Park, headwaters of the mighty Mississippi, a 10 minute drive to Soaring Eagles cross-country ski trail and 10 minutes to the Heartland Trail access which is open year round for biking, walking and running. Our home is available late spring and summer for boating, swimming and fishing and for fall colors, fishing and hikes in the woods. Ask us for names of local companies that rent pontoon boats.

The kitchen has new stainless appliances and is fully stocked with new pots and pans, knife block, dishes, glassware, coffee maker, Keurig, toaster, blender, griddle, microwave, and dishwasher. The wooded and natural lot provides privacy and quiet relaxation at all times of the day. The lower level deck and stone fire pit have Adirondack chairs for family gatherings that offer views of the lake while you enjoy the call of loons at dusk. Split firewood is available at no charge. All linens are provided including bath towels. The 40 foot dock has an access ladder on the swimming side, and bumpers on the other side to protect your boat, and features an 8 ft x 10 foot sitting area at the end.

Social Distancing at best!
We had an amazing week! The weather was perfect, we enjoyed a lot of swimming time off the dock, fishing, boating, campfires..etc. House had plenty of space for 8 of us (2 families). The cabin really had everything you can think of. Great view, loon calls forever...so wonderful!
