Property description

Recently Remodeled!!!

Our 'White Pine Retreat' is a privately situated 1800 sq. foot lake home with a spectacular view of Wasson Lake. This spacious cabin will accommodate up to 16 people. With 4 bedrooms, two full baths, washer & dryer, satellite TV, large open living/dining/kitchen area, walkout lower level with a large screened porch,table and chairs - you won't have to worry about feeling crowded! The sun room provides a view of Wasson Lake that is absolutely breathtaking. A Weber grill is provided, as well as an extra refrigerator in the attached garage. A private fire pit is on the property for you to enjoy a campfire under the stars. Your private dock is directly in front of your cabin. There is a nice grassy area for playing yard games.

White Pine Retreat is perfect for those who want the feel of a private cabin but still want the amenities of a resort. Our resort, Loon Point Resort, is down the lake shore from the White Pine cabin; about a 5 - 7 minute walk via a private drive. The resort has a concrete boat landing for your use, fishing boats/motors and pontoon are available for rent, a fish cleaning house, as well as complimentary items such as the kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddling boards, paddle boats, Little Tykes water slide, little kids hydro-paddlers, Rainbow play-set, volleyball/badminton, basketball, hiking trails. While you can swim off the dock at White Pine, the resort has a nice sandy swim beach area and a RAVE water trampoline. All of the resort amenities are included with your rental of White Pine Retreat.

With the resort owners (who own the White Pine cabin) on site, you can be assured that your every need will be met. We can provide you with information on things to do in the area and help you with tips for fishing on Wasson Lake. The Lodge at the resort is here for you to use as well. We have a lending library of books, board games, and puzzles, for you to check out. The lodge also has ice cream treats (for summer only) for sale as well as T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, gift items and postcards. Free WiFi is available at the lodge.

If you are looking for a place to party with family and/or friends...our lake home is NOT for you. We are a quiet family orientated property so parties are not welcome.

PETS: We do not allow pets in our lake home..no exceptions! We understand that your pet may be part of your family however the next group coming in to our lake home may be allergic to pet dander and therefore would not be able to stay in the home because your pet was in it. Our lake home and resort cabins are all pet dander free!

If you do not find availability in White Pine Retreat when you need it, please contact us or go to our resort website. We have 8 cabins available on the resort property that would most likely fit you and your groups needs, 3 of these cabins are FULL LOG CABINS!!!!

Wasson Lake is an exceptionally clear lake and is EXCEPTIONALLY scenic. Guests comment how the lake reminds them of lakes in Canada. With numerous bays and four islands, you'll enjoy fishing, canoeing, kayaking and boating. There is no public boat access (only the access from the resort), so you will feel like it's your own private lake. The lake is noted for smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, bluegills (sunfish) and crappies. Please note that speed boats and jet skis are not allowed on Wasson Lake. We do have a pontoon and 14' Lund fishing boats that can be rented. You are sure to see loons and hear them calling as well as observe eagles. There is an eagle nest on the island closest to the White Pine Retreat. You'll see the eagles soaring right in front of your cabin. A hummingbird feeder is right outside the dining room windows, great for viewing hummingbirds coming to feed.

Winter is another great time to stay at the White Pine Retreat. You'll have direct access to hundreds of miles of fantastic snowmobile trails. The White Pine cabin is centrally located amongst the trails so no riding the same trail twice. There's gas and restaurants nearby. If you're in to cross-country skiing, the area has numerous groomed trails. The nearest trails are 20 minutes from White Pine Retreat. For something totally different - consider trying dogsledding! We'll get you hooked up with an outfitter in our area. No matter what your activity, we can provide you with maps of where to go.

Fall provides excellent opportunities for grouse hunting, deer hunting, biking and hiking, and simply touring the area to take in the beauty of the fall colors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: John & Sherrie Porth purchased this property and the adjacent resort (Loon Point Resort) in 2014. We are 'full-time' resorters who are here 24/7 to provide our guests a great vacation experience.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MN, USA:
Wasson Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. The lake is spring fed & extremely clear. The location is in one of the most scenic parts of the state and we're close enough to Grand Rapids to enjoy a mid-sized town that is bustling with activity, has a nice selection of shopping and restaurants, arts opportunities as well as special events in the summer. We also have direct access to great snowmobile trails and close to groomed cross-country ski trails for winter fun.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The view from White Pine is breathtaking and relaxing. Whether watching the wildlife or watching the moon rise over the tree line, it never ceases to inspire you.
