This property is 15 miles from the St. Croix River which boasts a variety of wonderful activities, restaurants and scenic views. Close by golf, shopping, and 15 minutes to movies in Forest Lake or St. Croix Falls are also easy to access. You may enjoy the Franconia Sculpture Garden, the Taylors Falls riverboat cruises or hiking in the park there, or you may prefer to lounge at length at this lovely house/setting on the lake. There is really no place better than home!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1

About the owner: I grew up in the cabin next door to this property. This is me skiing on this lake. When this place came on the market we had to buy it! But, we haven't retired and sold our existing home yet, so you get to benefit from that! We know the beach and area very well, and still only live 6 miles away so are available if needed.

Why the Owner Chose Lindstrom:
This is just a super place for adults and children. The lake is fabulous, the fishing is unbelievable (worms and cane poles work perfectly for all the sunfish you can eat! -- but you'll also find walleyes, bass and northerns), and the comfortable environment of this lovely property with terraces, views, and great sitting areas for your enjoyment, put the package together. Neighbors are only there in the summer, so enjoy COMPLETE privacy from now til May. In summer, the place is screened by trees and buildings, so is effectively very private. You can't even by seen when on the sand beach from anywhere but the lake!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk in to the vaulted entry and enjoy your first view of the lake. . .just like a northwoods retreat! Then marvel at the scene you will enjoy for the next few days! There are so many nearby places to visit and enjoy. See the rest of the listing for details.
