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!

Wonderful Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at this McGregor lake home in mid June. The home is so spacious you would need to see it to believe it. The families with small children appreciated the upstairs suites which had plenty of sleeping space and private bathrooms. The weather was near perfect so we had bonfires every night. The kids had a great time on the sand beaches. Because this home is on a dead end road, there is very little traffic and much privacy.

Lots of wildlife can be seen from the deck or living room window. Chipmunks eating seeds from the maple spinners, grey and black squirrels, baby ducks swimming in line behind mom, loons diving for lunch, and turtles laying eggs in many places. The big kids caught enough fish for a fish fry.

We had a very relaxing week at this home and Diane was very good to work with. We recommend it.

Big Sandy Jewel

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this cabin for the weekend to attend a wedding in the McGregor area. Due to the weather we were unable to enjoy the beautiful outdoors so we took advantage of the cozy cabin. The game room provided plenty of entertainment for the children in our group. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The bedrooms were very comfortable and there are bathrooms everywhere, with plenty of hot water.

I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a cabin in northern MN.

Expansive, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We were a little early for swimming season, but the beach was wonderful. We had a large family reunion, and it proved perfect for such an occasion because two of the bedrooms have adjoining bedrooms with a shared bath. It would not be good for large groups who didn't want to walk through a master bedroom to get to a secondary bedroom for children and to get to the bathroom. It is a terrific place for extended families such as ours. Diane was wonderful to work with and the home was immaculate upon our arrival. Our damage deposit was promptly returned, and we would certainly rent it again.

AMAZING Cabin & Weekend Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Several friends and I recently booked this cabin for a weekend getaway and it certainly was a little piece of heaven! It is absolutely beautiful, extremely spacious and comes fully stocked with everything you’ll need as indicated under the Amenities section.

The cabin is literally lakeside and the fish does bite for those of you who are interested in fishing!

Diane, the owner, was also excellent to work with.

You won’t regret booking it so don’t think twice if you are!

we spent an awesome week at this magnificent home. The owners have planned perfectly for big groups. We were able to sprawl in comfort. Plenty of beds, hot water all the time, easy to care for. Great boat dock and beach, Diane is very attentive to details and questions. Everything was in working order and our vacation could not have been better.

Great Time Was Had By All

  • 5 of 5

Our first reaction was "WOW- this place is amazing." Our family thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. The description is extremely accurate - everything is provided except for dishtowels. The bedroom with en suite bathrooms were perfect. There was always something going on - we'd either be on the lake, around the camp fire, having a ping-pong or pool tournament, playing one of the many games.. but mostly we enjoyed the tranquility. We never ate was too much fun grilling and you can trust the description that everything is provided - tons of bowls, crock pots, utensils charcoal and gas grills - even marshmallow roasting sticks. We had everything we needed and more! Not only was the home spotless but the grounds were well manicured and there was absolutely no litter anywhere. It was easy to tell that the owners take great pride in this home - it shows. Diane was extremely easy to work with and it was very evident that her goal was that you had a great time. Our only complaint was that the week flew by too fast. Our last reaction when leaving was "WOW this place really is amazing" Thank you for sharing your home with us and helping to make some wonderful memories.
