Voyageurs Retreat: This beautiful home sits in an amazing new development which you will just love. All the homes are built to conform to strict architectural guidelines to complement the natural surroundings and to add to the overall beauty of this area. All roads are paved. The home has city utilities (water and sewer), natural gas, high speed internet, digital cable tv, phone. The entire development is beautifully landscaped with dramatic lighting, hiking trails, common swimming beaches with day-use canoes and picnic areas.
Our home sits on a beautiful and peaceful 2.1 acre lot with 335 feet of shoreline and lots of white pines, maples and birch. There is also a wonderful outdoor gathering area surrounding a large fire-ring for great times relaxing around a warm, crackling fire.
Why crowd yourselves into a condo or hotel room, when you can stay in a 5 bedroom private home for the same price (or even less)? This home was built to be a place where you could enjoy spending quality time together, with lots of recreational opportunities.
Our family stayed in the home many times and created our own memories. When the original owners were looking for a new family to own the home - we leapt at the chance.
We know you and your family will enjoy it too!

This home is located near Biwabik, Minnesota (approximately 3 hours north of the Twin Cities) and is across Wynne Lake from the Giants Ridge Golf and Ski Resort.

Year Purchased: 2012
About: Mel and I have been sharing our lives for over 15 years. We have a great blended family of 4 children, a son and daughter in-law and 4 incredible grandchildren (so far). We have a very active lives with many passions - one of which is time well spent with our family up at the lake.
Why Biwabik, MN, USA:
Mel and I took our family to this home many times and always felt so at home. When the family that originally built it decided to sell - they asked if we'd be interested in purchasing and we leapt at the opportunity. Giants Ridge is unique because it is one of only two areas in the entire country where you can ski, golf and be on a lake at the same location. There are tons of recreational options available, all within the local area. Giants Ridge offers two of the finest public golf courses in the country (The Quarry & The Legend) and the ski resort is one of the best in the mid-west. Road and Mountain biking, hiking, swimming, ATV riding, snowmobile riding, cross country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, fishing, Frisbee golf, sight-seeing, just to name a few.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house was specifically designed for groups and families to enjoy time away together. You will find plenty of room to all be together or have space to have private time. We love hanging out on the dock; sitting by a roaring fire or enjoying the sunset from the deck or porch after a day playing in the outdoors. This home will exceed your expectations.
