Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a new 3,000 square foot, 4-season home on an island in the Lake of the Woods. This is a unique property, located on the Canadian Border, in an area called the NorthWest Angle, the Northernmost part of the continental Unites States. The "Angle" is bordered by Canada on all land sides, and by the Lake of the Woods on the water side. Access is either through Canada, or by boat or snowmobile 30 miles to the Angle (the Angle was a surveyor's mistake at the time the borders were made).

The Lake of the Woods, and the Angle is famous for fishing. The lake has 65,000 miles of lakeshore and 14,000 islands. Ice houses are available to rent for fishing in the winter. The lake is a great place to explore; take a visit to Fort St. Charles, see Native American petroglyphs on cliff walls, or take a day to boat to the city of Kenora at the North end of the lake for dining and shopping. Snowmobiling is great in the winter, with trails in the US as well as Canada.

Why The Owner chose Minnesota

When I was in high school, I spent 2 summers as a dock boy in what is now the Boundry Waters Area of Minnesota. I really came to love the Northern Minnesota area. Many many, years later, after much searching, my wife and I purchased a lot on an island in the Lake of the Woods. Some of the local people framed the house during the winter (most have summer resort work), and I spent a few years part time finishing it. Due to the long distance for us to travel to the cabin, we can not use it that frequently so we rent to justify the ownership.

What makes this house unique

I overheard a pilot/guide describe Lake of the Woods to a customer as like the Boundry Waters without the pain. The lake has the well known world class fishing, but the lake is so large you can go exploring and always find new places. Take a day off from fishing and boat 40 miles North to Kenora for shopping and dinner. Visit Fort ST. Charles, or see the Native American petroglyphs. There are trails on the island, so go hike around and check out the wild life.
