Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Grew up on a small farm near Lake Norden, SD. Joined the Navy at age of 17. After retirement I received my real estate license and have been working real estate ever since. I am a member of the Presbyterian church. Mary and I are blessed with 3 sons, 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Why the Owner Chose Waubay:
Peace, serenity, waterfront and the view besides the fishing and hunting possibilities. It's in the country away from the hurried city life and is in the heart of great fishing opportunities at several local lakes plus waterfowl hunting is a prime reason. Pheasants as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Enjoy the freedom to relax, watch wildlife, watch boats cruising or fishing. Peaceful and comfortable. Beautiful setting for a vacation or a place to stay while you are hunting or fishing with all the comforts of home. Don't forget the great ICE fishing as well. Kitchen includes just about every item you can think of to supply a cook with items they use all the time.
