Property description

This is a classic Minnesota cabin. Fabulous beach. Crystal clear water. Bald eagles and herons. Tall pines. The kind of place you envision when you hear "northwoods cabin." And it is only two and a half hours from the Twin Cities.

We love this cabin - the hand-hewn logs, the fieldstone fireplace, the beams in the main room, the loft with its little windows. Built in 1946, it's a place with history and one that's been cared for through the years. We love the scale of the buildings relative to their surroundings - they rest on 2 acres of land and the cabin itself is respectfully situated near the lake.

The cabin can sleep up to 8 comfortably plus two more in sleeping bags. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. Upstairs in the open air loft, you will find 2 twin beds under one rafter and a queen futon snuggled under the other.

In the summer, one of our favorite spots is out on the screened porch. We like to listen to the peepers in early summer and later, the hum of the cicada. There’s a lovely cross breeze that moves the air about. And plenty of seating for late night chats with friends and family. For quieter moments, relax on the couch with a good book and let the ceiling fan keep you cool.

Outside, enjoy 275 feet of lake shore. There are no rocks, so kick off your shoes and walk carefree. The lake has gradual elevation into the water so you can be watchful, not worried, about your little ones on the beach. Children will love digging in the sand, fishing and jumping off the dock.

There is plenty of space in the yard for a game of Frisbee or soccer.

When you’re ready to venture further afield, head over to Mission Township Park and enjoy the short biking/walking trail or the charming park built under a canopy of pines. There’s a grocery store in Cross Lake, just 5 miles away, and a liquor store too.

Bring your bikes, pick up the Paul Bunyan trail at Lake Hubert and head into Nisswa for some summer fun: turtle races on Wednesday afternoons; lots of shops; Rainy Days bookstore, one of the finest independent bookstores you’ll ever enjoy; ice cream and coffee shops; breakfast, you name it. Enjoy a meal at one of many area restaurants or golf at one of the renowned nearby courses which, when combined, provide 450 holes waiting to be played.

At the cabin, there's only one rule: "Everybody does what they want." It's an easy rule to keep and ensures that each one of you has a good time!
