About the property

This lovely cabin is on Kabkona's beautiful sand beach and has hard packed sand swimming! Stunning sunsets and gorgeous Norway pines. Make no mistake, this cabin is on 100 feet of some of the nicest lake front you can find!

Why Betsy Peterson chose Minnesota

This is a delightful sunny cabin with a stunning view of the lake from the cabin dining and living rooms as well as the kitchen and upper bedroom. The sunsets are spectacular! The sand beach is lovely, the hard packed sand lake bottom is almost weed free and a joy to swim in! The water is crystal clear! It just doesn't get any better than this:)

What makes this cabin unique

This property sits on a sand bar. You can swim out to the dock and only be waist or knee deep depending on the year. Perfect for kids!

Peaceful & Pleasant

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this house and loved it! Our sons joined us for several days and it was great. The location is easy to find and it's right on the lake. You can step out the back door, take a few steps and go for a swim or boat ride. There's a dock, which I often used to sit on and read (dangling my feet int he lake). The house was very clean and it was stocked well. There is a large, sunny sitting room as well as a dining area. The bedrooms served us well and we could have slept more people. Overall this was a very pleasant place to be. We enjoyed several bonfire nights with the neighbors, visited Walker a couple of times, drove to the Itasca to the Mississippi headwaters, found a couple of great restaurants in the area and truly relaxed.

Another great vacation on Kabekona

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in this cabin for several years and will continue to do so. We started with one week, and have gradually increased our time, currently spending 3 weeks on Kabekona. This location is one of the best on the lake! Amazing sand beaches with gradual depth increase (great for our kids). Lots of amenities to keep everyone busy (sand toys, kayaks, paddle boat, dock, deck furniture, etc). Skiing and tubbing are a perfect fit for right out front of the cabin. Fishing is great (we've caught the following: walleyes, northern, rock bass, large mouth bass, sm mouth bass, perch, bluegills, sunfish). Cabin is always clean and overstocked with necessities. Dishwasher and laundry machines make things a lot easier. Love the Walker MN area! Already booked my weeks for next year!
