Property description

**WE DON'T USE THE ON LINE CALENDAR. YOU MUST ASK FOR AVAILABILITY.**

Escape to the North Woods - only an hour from the Twin Cities. This incredible new log home is appointed with knotty pine ceilings, oak floors and knotty hickory cabinets. We lovingly refer to the home as 'The Lodge'. There are several mounts throughout the home - Mr. Moose above the fireplace, deer, antelope, etc.

Main floor has a wet bar, an entertainment center with surround sound, and 42' flat panel TV will keep you entertained. The 16 foot stone fireplace and granite countertops throughout the kitchen complete the natural rustic feel.

The soaring vaulted ceilings are met by the trapezoid windows with the fantastic view of the lake. Watch the loons and the eagles as they pass by. Fish from the dock, or bring your boat as the public landing is a few blocks away. Balsam Lake has great fishing and there are several great restaurants close by and even accessible by boat.

The walkout level also has another wet bar in the family room with a very rustic log construction. There are several outdoor decks/patios. We have 2 docks in the lake in the summer. The shoreline is easy for kids to access and has a sandy bottom.

In the winter, bring your snowmobiles as the Gandy Dancer trails are very close by. This is the ultimate Up North escape. It is perfect for a corporate outing or a family week. Not a place for a roudy party.

Bedroom configuration is: 5 king sized beds and 1 queen size bed. Two of the king bedrooms are suites with their own bath. All bedrooms have premium linens with down comforters.


There is no daily maid service included, but is available for an additional charge.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Best thing is that it is less than an hour and a half from the Minneapolis St Paul area - and you truly feel like you have escaped civilization. Still - we have a great grocery store in the town close by, and great medical facilities too.
