Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Bernie and Naomi grew up in the suberbs of Mpls. and graduated from Minnetonka and /Edina Highschool repectively. Naomi fell into Bernies arms (litterally) at the Past Time skating rink , were married in 1985 and moved North to Onamia, Mn in in 1988. Bernie is a Contractor and Naomi a Massage Therapist. Their 4 boys, Gabriel, Michael, Jon and Gene enjoy Music, Hunting, Fishing, Building and crafting. Gabe has crafted over 400 cribbage boards made from diamond willow inlaid with his favorite agates and built the stone fireplace you see in our cabin. Mike is navigating city life in Mpls working in sales and enjoys playing cards, games, and dancing. Gene finished his 2400 mile trek down the Mississippi River in a kayak and works as an insurance salesman in rural America. He loves to play his guitar. Jon married the love of his life, Lauren, who gave us our first grandson, Blake and our new baby grand girl, Amelia. He works as an Engineer, and loves to hunt, Lauren is a dental hygienist, and excellent wife and mother.

Why the Owner Chose Garrison, MN, USA:
Bernie and I originally came up North to work with a camp called Timber Bay, a retreat center particularly for hurting youth but also for church and other various retreats. We live adjacent to Timber Bay and have made this our home. We originally built the vacation rental home for our retirement. It is only 5 miles from our home and we enjoy the creativity it takes to keep it up and running, for guests who come up North for their vacation. The new constructed part of it is about 7 years old.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The benefits include living next to a very popular vacation spot but also having the privacy and peace and quiet of the north woods. Its a 1 minute drive to the beach and wonderful activities around the Lake. We are surrounded by a variety of eateries, ATV and hiking and biking trails and beautiful sunsets and a star lit sky that will take your breath away.
