Owner info

Year Purchased: 1952

About the owner: I am one of several family members who own the cabin. This photo shows my mom and her husband and me with my husband and two of my children working on shoreline restoration a few years ago. I am the manager and will do whatever I can to make you feel welcome and comfortable during your stay at our cabin. I was born and raised in St Paul and Eagan, MN and now live in Edina. My husband and I enjoy spending time here with our family and friends who all love it here! Our family as well as our extended family have spent many weeks at the cabin and formed lasting memories! It is one of our favorite places to be in the world.

Why the Owner Chose Pine River, MN, USA:
Our cabin has a wonderful history. My grandparents discovered this beautiful property when my grandfather was the camp director at Camp Foley on Lower Whitefish Lake in the 1930's. My grandparents built the cabin in 1952 and spent every summer here with their 10 children. It is now owned by my mom, my aunt and me along with sister and brother and cousin....the next generation. We have extended family with cabins nearby so we all love coming up to have fun and spend time with family.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin has undergone several renovations with many upgrades over the years. So it has all the modern conveniences (including a state-of-the-art kitchen) but still retains the charm of the old days. Located on the north shore of Lower Whitefish Lake, it has the best swimming on the Whitefish Chain - hard, sandy bottom with no weeds! Cabin is beautiful, comfortable and lends itself to all kinds of family fun! Great for family reunions, entertaining family and friends. The fall is a wonderful time for quiet, restful weekends especially when the leaves are turning. Great place to enjoy 3 seasons of fun! Summer provides water sports & a place to escape the heat; Spring offers great fishing and hiking and shopping in nearby Nisswa and Crosslake; Fall is a panorama of amazing colors when the leaves change! Wonderful places for walks and we have a fantastic fire-pit on the bank overlooking the lake! There are also hundreds of great bike trails nearby!
