                          Why the Owner Chose Walker:
                          After vacationing in the Walker / Leech Lake area for many years, falling in love with the area and making many friends we decided we wanted to own a property here so that we could spend more time enjoying all that we had come to love. After much looking we chose a charming red cedar log “cabin”. It was a private refuge with a secluded, calm “up-north” feeling. Over the years we remodeled and finally added on in 2008 creating an amazing retreat. Life then took us in a different direction and we didn’t have the time to spend at the lake that we once had. We decided to maintain our family cabin and make it available to others as a remarkable rental property.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The Point Cabin, as we call it, is uniquely situated on a small point of Kabekona Bay affording incredible, panoramic views of this beautiful Northern Minnesota lake. You will enjoy a 180 degree view of the bay. A mere 25 feet from the water the cabin provides an intimacy with the lake that few other properties can. Less than 10 steps and you are on the dock. There is also a beautiful lawn to enjoy lawn games, a fire ring for the marshmallow roast or relaxing and telling your favorite Minnesota ghost stories. Cast a line from the dock, take a swim in the sand bottom swim area or read a book in the hammock. A short walk and you can access the areas trail system. Or rent a boat or Jet Ski and enjoy fishing or water sports on this protected bay. Prefer shopping or dining? The Point Cabin is located about 3 miles from downtown Walker and even closer to one of the area’s finest restaurants, Boulders. Whatever you decide to do on your vacation this is a great place to do it.
