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!
