About Daniel Spanier

My family loves to send time at the lake. We've done extensive updates to the cabin and take great pride in sharing it with others.

Daniel Spanier purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Daniel Spanier chose McGregor

This property is unique in the sense that it sits on a narrow piece of property with the lake on both sides. It's on a hill that creates fantastic views from the front, and great privacy in the back. The back also has a sandy bech and dock. And when it rains the sound on the metal roof in the morning is the greatest!

What makes this cabin unique

Very clean, fresh cabin with newer beds, linens. Hardwood floors throughout and two new bathrooms. There are a couple of large area rugs, but the rest is maple, birch, and pine throughout. It's decorated in an up north theme complete with old fishing lures. But we have newer appliances including an antique reproduction stove. The bathrooms are new, with the exception of a deep antique claw foot tub. Lots of windows allows for cool nights with the fresh scent of the surrounding pine trees. There are electric baseboards heaters throughout as well as ceiling fans.

1920's cabin with northwoods charm on Lake Minnewawa in the pines
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

relaxing on a quiet lake

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a really nice relaxing weekend at the cabin, which is lovely. We enjoyed fires in the firepit outside under the full moon and kayaked the lake to explore. Finished a really good book with the breeze blowing through the cabin with a great thunderstorm moving across the lake and made delicious dinners on the grill. Our dog, Wilson, had the best time of all and is still exhaused from a continual loop of jumping off of the dock to retrieve a toy and swimming back to shore only to do it all over again! I would definately reccomend this cabin to a couple or a small family looking for a get away without the long drive from Minneapolis.
