Experience cabin life at its finest when you come and stay at our
amazing cabin! Perfect for a family retreat or get-away with friends!

Our log home was built in 2006 with 6 bedrooms and 6 baths. It is located approximately 2.5 hours from the Twin Cities on Big Sandy Lake, which is just north of McGregor, MN. The cabin is near Duluth and Brainerd. This property is ideal for all seasons and activities from water activities in the summer, enjoying the changing colors of the leaves, hunting in the fall & sitting by the fire in the winter.

This property is situated on the north shore of Big Sandy Lake with a gradual slope from the cabin down to the lake (allowing for an incredible view!) It has 285 feet of private lake shore & 2 sandy beach areas. The lake is 6000+ acres with lots of shoreline, many interesting islands & bays to explore.

The 6000 square foot - 3 level home features 6 bedrooms ( of which 2 are family suites), 6 bathrooms , 1.5 kitchens, a large dining room, great room, loft, screened 3 season porch, family room, game room with pool, ping pong & poker tables. The home has beds for 14, and has slept many more by utilizing the sofa sleeper, futon, 2 twin inflatable beds & the 2 twin high density foam mattresses. The bedroom arrangements include 1 King bedroom with a twin bed, 2 Queen suites with two side by side twin beds in the adjoining room, and an additional Queen bedroom with a twin bed.

The indoor living spaces are spectacular; with huge windows, vaulted cedar ceilings, log walls, and 2 wood-burning fireplaces. The craftsmanship & attention to detail are first class. The layout allows you to have your own space, and there are many wonderful common areas in which to gather.

The outdoor spaces are fantastic. The 1.5 acre lot has a beautiful double row of pines trees for added privacy on all sides except the lake side. There are many mighty oaks, paper birch, & maple trees that frame our lake home. The landscape has a good balance of being left natural as well as having green grass cleared areas.

The roomy deck and the screen porch are excellent choices to enjoy a great view of the lake. The back porch is a good location to enjoy the beauty of the woods. In the evening you might decide to utilize the fire pit down by the water. There is space at the dock for you to bring your own boat. There are public launches in the area. We have a fishing boat (no motor), 2 kayaks & a canoe that are provided at no charge for your enjoyment. The grounds are well cared for and provide the perfect opportunity for yard games and for children to roam and play. There are conveniently located businesses in McGregor that rent pontoons.

There is a nearby Minnesota National Golf Course and Savanna Portage State Park.
The golf course is an 18 hole championship course that has five tee boxes for any skill level.

There are restaurants & bars that you can boat or drive to near and on the lake.

Book your fall hunting trip here. There is state land close by to hunt on.

If you are looking for a winter get-away our cabin can provide you with a wide variety of outdoor activities; including snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice fishing etc.

Book with us and make some memories!
