                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: My wife Paula and I vacationed with our family in the Longville area for 15 years before discovering this beautiful property on Little Boy Lake, our favorite lake in the area. I am a chef, and my wife is a physical education teacher, so we needed to keep both of our 'hobbies' in mind when building. lots of room for cooking and dining, as well as all the recreation that you could want from fishing, biking, golf, boating, canoeing, kayaking (Paula's favoite activity at the lake), and of course just relaxing on the deck with freinds and a glass of wine. It is our goal that you enjoy Bear Point as much as we do, and invite you to have as much fun and enjoyment on Little Boy Lake as we have discovered over the years since building the Cabin at Bear Point. Enjoy your virtual tour of Bear Point. Thanks for visiting! Doug & Paula Oaks

                      Why the Owner Chose Little Boy Lake:
                      Little Boy is a beautiful lake that is off the beaten trail and has a reputation as a quiet and secluded lake. It is private, yet only 5 minutes to town, with easy access to any necessities that you might require from bait and gas to restaurants and gift shops. You are about 90 minutes from Itasca State park, and the source of the Mississippi River.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Rustic privacy with all the modern amenities is the best description of Bear Point Island. While enjoying the seclusion, you can feel secure in the fact that you are never more than a few minutes away from whatever you might need including, groceries, coffee shop, bait & tackle stores, boat & motor service, golf, movie theatre, state parks, and many other outdoor activities.
