Beautiful Cabin on Upper Hay Lake!

Whether it is hiking, biking, fishing, crafting or relaxing, this is the perfect place to hang out. It is a great retreat for any couple, family or group of friends. If you are looking for that “up north” feel with most of the amenities of home, this is a great place to enjoy your vacation.

The cabin is fully equipped and available all year round, so you can enjoy your week doing what you want, whether it is fishing, swimming, exploring, relaxing, crafting, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, shopping! This wonderful lake cottage located near Pequot Lakes is minutes from shopping, restaurants, golf, Paul Bunyan Trail and lots of up north activities! Perfect for a fall retreat, it is located feet from the Veteran Memorial Trail that takes you through a woodsy path. Winter is great for ice fishing, skiing, sledding and snowmobiling.

The large deck and charcoal grill invite an outside dining experience to enjoy nature.

It is close to lots of quaint shopping in the various small resort areas adjacent, as well as in close proximity to major golf courses like Maddens, Rutgers and Breezy Point. Paul Bunyan Trail is about a mile away and offers a great way to enjoy the scenic up north. Fall and winter activities include hiking, biking , winter skiing, tubing, sledding and snowmobiling. There seems to be something for everyone here!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Born and raised in Minnesota, we have grown up enjoying the lakes areas of Minnesota. When we were finally able to purchase our own cabin, we chose the Pequot Lakes area for its close proximity to the Twin Cities. The home and lake are so perfect that we could just drive up north and relax!

Why the Owner Chose Pequot Lakes:
The Pequot Lakes area is within the drive distance that we are comfortable with for a weekend. The home was turnkey for us and in great condition. Plus it had the lake qualities that we wanted – sand beach and shallow slope to shore.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One of the greatest perks of the cabin is the sunsets. They are consistently awesome! Another surprise was the presence of the loon family and the fact that it seems they like to swim in our bay! In addition, we have seen numerous other waterfowl, birds and even deer chilling in our yard!
