About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

If you're looking for a crowded lake with noisy neighbors, this isn't for you. Welcome to the Knutson Family Lakeshore Cabin, LLC. We only do weekly rentals, Saturday to Saturday, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

The 3,600 square foot log home that was built in 1934, which has been restored, is located on the shore of Butternut Lake. You will marvel at the expanse of wooded scenery. As soon as you drive down the long winding driveway, you'll probably start to feel the stress of the city melt the moment you step foot in the cabin.

This well-preserved 2 story log home was built in 1934 by two lumberjacks. It has 1,200 feet of lake frontage on a 5 acre parcel of land surrounded by lake, woods, peace and quiet.

A bald eagle nests in a tall pine tree on the property near the lake. As you have your morning coffee on the dock, she will be about 80 yards to your left watching over you. If you're lucky you will see her out flying about with her young one.

If you are looking for a nice sugar sand beach for small childern to build sandcastles in, I don't want to dissapoint you but this is not for you. We brought our kids here for more than 15 years every Summer weekend. They swam off the dock and and did alot of other water activities.

As you move out from shore the water gradually gets deeper. It is about 4 1/2 feet deep at the end of the dock. 20 feet out from the end of the dock it starts to drop off faster. Not only is this good for swimming but great for throwing out a floating jig and draging it along the bottom for the walley's. Do this about the time the sun is setting on the tops of the trees across the lake. I'd fish for about 2 hours after that and you should drag in some keepers.

We currently taking reservations for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
