Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12-17) Pontoon Rental

Come up north with your family to the scenic Minnesota woodlands and enjoy 'Iron Ridge', our private log home, beach, and dock on the peaceful shores of Wynne Lake. Easy to find and most convenient of the vacation rental homes, we are on the same side of the lake and just one mile down the road from Giants Ridge Ski Resort and the renown Quarry and Legends Golf Courses. 'Iron Ridge' is a custom home built with massive red pine logs and situated on a spacious wooded lot with private lakeshore and dock. A large secure garage and extensive paved driveway provide plenty of safe, off-road parking for all types of vehicles, trailers or campers.

The main level features a well equipped kitchen with everything you'll need (dishwasher, microwave, crock-pot, blender, etc). The dining area (with large table and center island), living room with fieldstone fireplace), and wrap-around covered deck all provide gorgeous views of the lake. Both main level bedrooms boast comfortable King size beds, and the main bathroom has a shower and jacuzzi (jetted) tub. The living room sofa pulls out to a queen sleeper.

The lower level is the perfect place for entertaining and family fun. It features a wet bar/kitchen area with sink, refrigerator, large counter/bar with stools and 2 pub tables. From here, walk out to the patio area which overlooks and is only steps from the lake. The patio highlights a large outdoor Hot Tub, patio furniture for dining, sunning or lounging, gas grill, and log porch swing. Step back inside and just down the hallway you'll find a full bathroom complete with a shower, changing room and cedar sauna. Also down this hallway is a utility room with washer, dryer, and iron.

Both downstairs bedrooms are equipped with bunk beds: one with 2 full beds (full over full bunk), and one with 4 twin beds ( 2 twin over twin bunks). The lower level family room is great for relaxing. Along with a second fireplace, this room has a large TV complete with Sat/Dish TV, XBox 360, and DVD/VCR player. You'll also find books for all ages, board games, XBox games, and an extensive DVD collection. The Queen sofa sleeper and futon provide additional sleep accommodations.

Why The Owner chose Biwabik

We purchased this home with the goal of living in it full-time after retirement. It is a beautiful home in a perfect setting and we absolutely love the Giant's Ridge area. The area provides a great location for every outdoor activity possible for all seasons. it is remote and yet still only an hour away from the city of Duluth and everything it offers.

What makes this house unique

Our home provides many extras and amenities you won't find at the others. Why rent when you can enjoy free use of our kayak, canoe, bicycles, and snowshoes. We also offer free WI-FI. We warmly invite you to discover the beauty of Iron Ridge. If you value privacy and the comforts that only a home can offer, give us a call and reserve your getaway now!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The beautifulness of everything here ( lake, forest etc.) fishing and just hanging out with family. Oh & pictionary :) This place was absolutely positively stellar and I would love to come back. You also had everything in the cabin that anyone would ever need. Thank you. AC



What a very relaxing place. This is what we needed. The house is very pretty and inviting. We are already planning our next trip here. Thank you for opening up your home to our family.

The house was perfect for the eight of us. The separate living areas and outdoor space, including fire pit and hot tub, provided plenty of space. We plan on returning!

Excellent Stay, would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Labor day weekend, and it was fantastic. The place is large and spacious, with plenty of beds. It is nice and secluded from the neighbors, on a pretty quiet lake. The house was very clean when we arrived, stocked with firewood outside, a working grill and hot tub, and we even had a pontoon to use (for an additional charge). The pontoon only has a 9HP motor, so the thing putts along, but the lake isn't real huge so it definitely worked out.

We were right by the golf courses at Giant's Ridge which were beautiful to play.

The owner was a great communicator and pleasant to work with. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this property. We were a group of 10 including 2 kids and there was plenty of space for everyone. the cabin was immaculate when we arrived and was well stocked with everything we could need. There was even a bottle of wine from the owners which was a very nice touch. (Thank you!) We spent most our days floating on the lake, with a pontoon ride every evening, and a fire under the stars at night. The owners were wonderful and very responsive when we had questions. The only negative we encountered was that the hot tub only worked the first night which was a bit of a bummer, but regardless we very much enjoyed our stay.

Perfect location with many activities to do

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place for a large family to meet and hang out for a week on a beautiful lake. The house has a great layout with a large family room downstairs and a quiet living room upstairs off the kitchen. The two bedrooms upstairs had large King beds and the two downstairs were perfect for kids. The lake was very quiet and we saw a ton of wildlife while there. Giants Ridge ski hill was a mile away, perfect to bike to or run/walk. There are a few restaurants there as well as a small arcade, rock wall, and bikes to rent. The adjoining lake and rivers running off the lake were incredible to explore. While the surrounding areas such as Duluth, Ely, and Soudan were really fun for day trips. We would love to go back to this cabin as the owner was very nice and responsive when we had questions. There was an awesome grocery store only minutes away in a quaint little town that took care of our every need. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling with kids or just a couples retreat with friends. Make sure to get up early and catch the sunrise, it is very beautiful with the lake lighting up in the morning.
