This is an exquisitely beautiful, secluded and relatively private setting on Moose Lake. Some folks like to move in and enjoy the solitude for the duration of their stay. Others like to take advantage of the contiguous Resort Lodge and communing with other guests. If available, you should try for two weeks or more. Kitchen is newly remodeled. One bedroom suite added in 2012. Additional one bedroom suites may be available at my new private home close by should your group need additional space. Private bar is available at contiguous resort and many public bars and restaurants are close by and accessible by boat or road. The Mississippi chain of lakes is close by and fun for canoeing. Spring is great for bird watching and the fall with color changes is, I think, the best time of the year to visit the region.Renting is typically Sat to Sat. with a 4 night minimum.Calendar is controlled through the resort reservations system.
Year Purchased: 1972
About: My wife, Nilla, and I have traveled many times to all continents over the last 40 years and still do. For her, there is nothing like her homestead in Bavaria. For me, there is no where in the world as peaceful and rewarding as Moose Lake. It is our little 'lake wobegon'.
Why Blackduck, MN, USA:
Westwood is a part of our lakeshore Stennes and Buhn Moose Lake Resort property purchased by my Aunt Elvera and husband in 1947, the first time I visited there. Growing up on a farm not far away gave us opportunity to visit there in the summer. My brother Paul and partner Jack Buhn purchased the property in 1972 and have been remodeling and landscaping ever since. Even though I have lived in San Diego for 45 years, Moose Lake is still home to me.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Did you ever go somewhere and take along a bunch of stuff to do...and come home with it undone. Fly from San Diego over our wonderful country and see the scenery change. Gaze out the window at the lakes below as you descend into Bemidji. Two miles down a winding tree lined road and the outside world is forgotten. You have arrived at Nirvana. For guests, it is all manner of restful 'inging'. For me, that is pontooning, transplanting trees on the 100 acres, mowing lawns, landscaping, ect, and continuous communing with nature, good friends, and long time guests.
