Orr cabin description

Nestled comfortably in Saunder's Bay with all the amenities of home this lake front property offers visitors a private location on Pelican Lake. It is centrally located within the best fishing and hunting areas in Northern Minnesota. Resting on over 10,000 acres of lake and 50 Islands makes for some unbeatable fishing.

It's isolated location will give visitors that away from the crowds feel yet with direct access to the activities or interests that makes lake front living so enjoyable. You can water ski here, or if requested, rent one of the available fishing boats and catch walleyes, northern pike, crappies on one of the best fisheries around, most can be caught right off the dock.

Bring your golf clubs and play at some of the area golf courses. Visitors may also use either the paddle boat or canoe to explore the bay or venture out onto greater Pelican Lake.

The cabin features a screened-in veranda that looks out onto the lake providing a comfortable living space to enjoy your meals, play cards or read a book.

Personally, I find the cabin a place where I can kick back and enjoy life's simple pleasures. Where the inherent calming effects of nature can soothe the stresses in our lives and clear the senses. A place to enjoy the company of friends and family.

The Superior National Forest and the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area makes this an excellent home base location for visitors interested in exploring Minnesota's Voyagers Country. The area surrounding the cabin offers an ideal habitat for a variety of birds and animals big and small. Visitors are likely to see Bald Eagles, Ospreys, beavers, otters or hear the wolves.

Visit the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary and get up close to black bears just minutes away or visit The International Wolf Center or The North American Bear Center in Ely, MN.

Amenities include: A queen size bed and two twins in separate bedrooms. A Futon in living room can fold out into a bed and accommodate 2 additional people.

Full kitchen; complete dinner ware and cooking utensils. Appliances include a electric double oven, microwave, coffee maker, Toaster oven, refrigerator and deep freezer chest.

          Owner info

          About the owner: Originally from the North Side of Chicago, I moved to northern California and attended San Francisco State University, where I met my wife of almost thirty years. We live in Sonoma County just north of San Francisco. My background is in business management, finance and home construction. My interests include the exploring the outdoors, travel, U.S. Foreign Policy and International Trade and development.

          Why the Owner Chose Orr:
          I inherited this property as part of a group of adjoining lots that have been in the family for generations. It is where I've shared countless memories over the years enjoying the family, fishing and good times. It's sitting makes it the most desirable, located in an semi-isolated region of Pelican lake, the bay is rarely explored by others and imparts the feeling of owning part or your own private lake. Living and working in large urban areas can run you down physically, mentally and perhaps more importantly spiritually but this location always provides the remedy and refuge. I can recharge my batteries and relieve the stresses of a fast paced world. The sights and sounds of wildlife, the smell of fresh air and the texture of the surrounding wilderness can be intoxicating. It's because of these environments that someone can find the perfect place for relaxation and peace of mind.
