Property description

Located just about 7 miles southwest of Walker. Vacation with your friends and family at our large lakehome, situated on a quiet bay of secluded Howard lake. Our home is large enough for multi familys with large bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and seperate apartment above the garage. Fish from the dock (or your boat) on this spring fed deep clear lake. Enjoy the sounds of the many loons that call Howard lake home. Paddle the canoe or paddle bikes to explore all this secluded lake has to offer. There is no developed public access on this lake, so it is very quiet but we do have a place that you can launch your boat. With cabins on just a portion of the lake, you are sure to get the true 'up north' feel your after. We have ample parking for all your cars, trucks and trailers, level lakelot with plenty of shade and beautiful crystal clear water, home to many species of fish and even more loons. This is a new home with approximatly 4,000 square feet and has something for everyone. Fishing is excellent, swimming is great and no matter what time of year, there is plenty to do. Winter is also a great time in this area with the great snowmobile trails, sledding hills, ice skating, skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and more.
You will find everything you could need in our home for a great vacation. High speed internet for the person who needs to check into work now and then, or just for the convenience of surfing the web.
The apartment above the garage has its own kitchen, large bedroom, bathroom with shower and fireplace with flatscreen tv.
The main greatroom has flatscreen tv. with Direct T.v. and dvd. The decor is definitely 'northwoods' and has many mounted animals etc.
The house, patio and garage are wired with stereo and cd player with controls in each room.
Our rates for the fall and winter are basic and will be determined by the number of guests, inquire for specifics.
New for 2014 is a totally renovated garage into a game room with Ping Pong, foosball, gaming system (central air conditioning) and more.
We are a 'family orientated' Lake home and are not interested in hosting Bachelor/Bachelorette party's or Weddings, Thank you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My wife and I built this home as a dream getaway for our families. Of course with children and work, we can't be there all the time so we are renting it out on a limited bases. We are non smokers and do not allow pets on the property. We love to fish, hunt and spend time with our families. Being that this is our 'home away from home' you will find some of our grocery's in the cupboards but trust me, there is plenty of room for anything you bring. We want you to feel right at home, so use what we have if needed,all we ask is that you replace what you used. Sometimes a person forgets something or runs out of a certain thing they need, so we don't mind if you help yourself.

Why the Owner Chose Akeley, MN, USA:
This area is so great for anything a person wants to do. We have the smaller lake living with close proximity to Leech Lake. You can be from our door to the landing on leech lake in 10 minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Great fishing is right here. Our property is very quiet,so much piece and quiet, you will be amazed! Howard lake has no maintained public access, so it is very quiet here. Deep clear water, lots of loons, just really quiet.
