Grand Rapids cabin description

ALSO NOTE: This is a Saturday to Saturday rental during peak summer months (mid-June through September 1)

Premier location on Lake Pokegama (5) miles from downtown Grand Rapids. Cabin faces SE with views of the Golf Course and Drumbeater Island. It is centrally located on the lake to all amenties (18-hole public golf course, several islands, Mississippi River access, Zorbaz restaurant, etc). Over $125k of renovations done in 2013 that retained some of the 1940's old-world cabin charm. Renovations included all new kitchen appliances, cabinets, 2-way gas fireplace, vaulted family room with seperate dining and sun-room facing the lake. Ideal layout for multiple conversation areas that will enjoy a view of the lake from every room.

This building sleeps (10) and offers (3) unique bedrooms with a seperate Den. One bedroom has a queen bed and built-in twin bunks for a family; one with a master suite, queen bed, 3/4 private bath and vaulted ceiling; and one bedroom with a queen bed that faces the lake. The main area boasts a wide-open kitchen with 7-foot island, connected dining area with an 8-foot 'farmer's' table, and a 2-way gas fireplace that separates the family room with TV. There is a 180 degree lakeside view through the 5-foot windows that offers a view from every room.

We also offer an attached, private sleeping quarters that is accessible from the adjoining deck (we call it the 'Wolf's Den'). This sleeping quarters has it's own bedroom with a queen bed, living room, fireplace, and future 3/4 bath with full kitchen (the kitchen and bath are scheduled to be completed in 2015). We suggest this space for guests that would like to have their own 'little cabin' and still be a part of the bigger group.

250 ft. of sandy, private lakeshore that is at the end of a paved road on a 3+ acre setting. Gradual elevation to the lake (no stairs) with sandy beach area and mature trees. Incredible views of Drumbeater Island! Nesting eagles, loons, and deer are some of the wildlife you will see.

Take the boat to the golf course or visit (3) additional courses within (5) miles of the cabin. There are (2) different restaurants on the lake that you can boat to and enjoy great food, beach volleyball and awesome lake views.

Pokegama Lake offers over 6,600 acres of boating fun and several beaches and islands to explore! It is connected to the Mississippi River chain giving you access to over 30,000 acres of water. In addition, there are over 1,000 additional lakes in Itasca County to explore. And the fishing is excellent..!!
