Property description

A magic place....100 miles north of the Twin cities, in Aitkin County, Wilderness Acres is steeped in history of one family's wield of pen, rod,and hoe. Located on tranquil Bear Lake in the popular Mille Lacs region, this lake home offers a magnificent natural setting on 120 acres of woodland.

Enjoy the firm tug on your fishing line, a walk in the woods in search of wild berries in season, and a quiet canoe ride perhaps to view a breathtaking sunset.

The inside boasts gleaming knotty pine, antique furnishings, a cozy fireplace, a full-size kitchen and 2 full baths. A three season picnic house not far from the house allows you to enjoy the outdoors while keeping Minnesota mosquitoes out. Wilderness Acres provides great privacy as a sanctuary unto itself.

For more information please call number or complete the email form below. Thank you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1949

About the owner: My grandparents purchased this property in 1949. I grew up spending time with them and loving the nature. I inherited Wilderness Acres in 1983 and have raised my son to enjoy the wilderness. I now would like to share the beauty with others and still save time for myself and family to enjoy as well. It's a little slice of heaven!

Why the Owner Chose McGrath, MN, USA:
It is rare to find such privacy surrounded by 120 acres of woodland on a very quiet private lake. It's a great place to rejuvenate and heal your spirit from the hustle and bustle of your daily lives.
