About Leon Anderson

Grew up on a small farm near Lake Norden, SD. Joined the Navy at age of 17. After retirement I received my real estate license and have been working real estate ever since. I am a member of the Presbyterian church. Mary and I are blessed with 3 sons, 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Leon Anderson purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Leon Anderson chose Waubay

Peace, serenity, waterfront and the view besides the fishing and hunting possibilities. It's in the country away from the hurried city life and is in the heart of great fishing opportunities at several local lakes plus waterfowl hunting is a prime reason. Pheasants as well.

What makes this cabin unique

10% discount for repeat clients, active duty Military, retired Military, police and firemen. Enjoy the freedom to relax, watch wildlife, watch boats cruising or fishing. Peaceful and comfortable. Beautiful setting for a vacation or a place to stay while you are hunting or fishing with all the comforts of home. Don't forget the great ICE fishing as well. Kitchen includes just about every item you can think of to supply a cook with items they use all the time. Apartment over garage also available if more space is needed. Call for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! Incredible view of Lake Waubay. Very clean and comfortable for our large group of fishers. Plenty of parking space for trucks and boat trailers. Kids had a great time playing pool in the basement and hanging out on the dock. Owner was helpful and prompt to respond to our questions. We will be back!

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was great to get away from it all and relax at the cabin for a few days. Plenty of parking for our boats, and the dock had a new extension to make things easy. Huge blue lake, fully stocked kitchen, and light streaming through the windows. Owner was easy to work with.

Great cabin and location, but could use better up-keep

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cabin. Unfortunately the conditions had declined since our first stay. The door handle and the grill top were both broken upon arrival. Thankfully my father-in-law is a mr fix it and had tools on him and was able to fix these for our stay. Also could not find a fly swatter or a grill brush around anywhere; so we bought these items and ended up donating to the cabin. Not sure what previous guests had done to the pool table in the basement, but it was in rough shape unfortunately. The place itself is pretty dirty now, but this is not the cleaning lady's fault as she is only one person and only has a few hours in between parties to get the place clean. That really only leaves time for the basics. I would suggest hiring her additional help. I'm sure it is difficult to really know what is going on and maintaining your property when you live far away. This is a great place and great location. It's unfortunate that certain individuals just do not seem to care for property when it is not their own.

Owner's Response: There will be the occasional renter who does not report to us that things are not working properly when they arrive or who causes things to be missing. The cleaning crew does not review whether the grill is broken or missing a tool. The pool table would be very costly to replace so yes, it does have a scrape along one side and a stain on the fabric; however, these issues do not affect playing pool on it. We have addressed the cleaning with our crew, who advised us that this party of 8 adults arrived two hours early while they were in the midst of cleaning and changing linens and stood around the area which they were trying to clean while chatting, which interrupted their work. We ask that renters do NOT arrive before the 4 PM check-in time in consideration of the people working to make the cabin clean and comfortable for your stay.

  • 4 of 5

Would have been nice to have the dock in place however the neighbors let us use theirs. Very nice people. The house was great. Plenty of room and nice to have the pool table and ping-pong table. We had a great time! Hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Dock is normally in by mid May however ice stayed on the lake longer than usual this year which backed up how docks were getting put in. I actually had to find a new installation team that got it done. I am now on his schedule for future. Hope to see you again. Leon
