About the Property

3 Bedrooms + Sunroom + Family Room + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8) on Leader Lake.

Our lake home is what you are looking for. Level, sandy beach on a crystal clear, deep lake. Open, sunny floorplan with large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen, with custom maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances, encourages family and friend gatherings. Informal dining area offers a versatile space for an intimate dinner or a larger family get together. Watch the lake and wildlife in the comfortable livingroom or on the wrap around deck or in the three season porch. The knotty pine interior conveys a warm, inviting feeling.

There's plenty of sleeping room in this home with 2006 sq ft of living space. There are three bedrooms plus additional space in the three season porch or family room on the lower, walk-out level.

Surrounded by tall red and white pines, maple and oak trees, the natural setting ensures privacy and plenty of wildlife viewing. Sit around a crackling fire on a summer evening and listen to the bull frogs and loons.

The beach and dock are just a short walk down a gentle slope from the cabin. After a swim, paddle or a crusie on the pontoon boat you can relax in the three season porch or on the wrap around deck. The fishing is excellent in this clear lake and the only public boat landing allows only non-motorized boats. Our 18' Northwood Pontoon Boat to fish, to swim off of and to cruise is included in the price.

Leader Lake is a 160-acre lake that has a maximum depth of 56 feet and has a hard sand shoreline. According to the DNR, the primary game fish present include northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, and panfish. Because of the limited public access, fishing pressure from non-residents is light.


The lake home is a 5 miles from Hwy 53. You'll find the basics in nearby Minong or Solon Springs; Superior and Duluth are 45 minutes away. Hayward is 35 miles away. From Minneapolis/St. Paul it's a 2.5 hour drive.
