Federal Dam lodge description

Bring the whole crew to enjoy the beauty of Leech Lake and the Chippewa National Forest. This 7200 square foot luxury home is situated on 200 feet of Leech Lake shoreline. It has 4 traditional bedrooms, a large bunk room, a loft, and a pull out couch downstairs to provide your group with plenty of sleeping room. The main floor of this wonderful home has a huge vaulted great room with a stone fireplace and unbeatable views of the lake - an absolutely perfect place to gather the family around to trade fish stories or share a glass of wine. There's a large eat in kitchen, formal dining room and a separate casual eating area on the main floor as well. The lower level of the home has a large screen TV, pool table, wet bar, bubble hockey game and a full weight/exercise room. The upper level has two wonderful loft areas (again with amazing views of the lake) with spacious seating areas and lots of books if you need a little time to yourself. The bunk rooms are in their own private area on the upper level as well. Outdoors there is a large deck off of the main floor and a large patio off of the lower level. The fire pit near the lake is perfect for watching the sun set as everyone gathers around to roast marshmallows and reminisce. If that's not enough to keep the crew occupied there's also a three season room with a hot tub located just off of the main floor deck. There are two covered boat slips in our harbor to keep your boat(s) during your stay. The Isle Harbor development, in which the home is located, has a playground, basketball court, sand beach, fish cleaning house, and private boat launch - all of which are available for you and your family to enjoy. If you're looking for a lake vacation near the Twin Cities check out our property on Lake Minnetonka - VRBO listing #396680.

              The home is located in the beautiful Isle Harbor development on the northeast side of Leech Lake. This is the ideal location as it offers peace and quiet with easy access (30 minute car ride or 1 hour boat ride) to the busier Walker area.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: I love lakes and lake homes - in particular their almost magical ability to bring families together in a way that few other environments can. We purchased this home in the winter of 2013 with the intent of making it available to families and larger groups so they can enjoy the beauty of Leech Lake and the Chippewa National Forest together, without having to retreat to separate hotel rooms or cabins every evening.

              Why the Owner Chose Federal Dam:
              Leech Lake Lodge is simply the perfect home for family gatherings and larger groups. Situated on the lightly developed northeast side of Leech Lake the home provides an 'up-north' environment unlike any other.

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              The size of the property along with all of the amenities offered both at the home itself as well as in the Isle Harbor development (pool table, hot tub, exercise room, wet bar, sand beach, basketball court, playground, private boat launch, fish cleaning house, hiking trails, covered boats slips, etc...).
