Refurbished year-round lake home with knotty pine interior on 25 acres of Minnesota woodland, 600 feet of lake frontage with 100 feet of solid sand bottom at the dock area. Perfect for couples, honeymooners, or families on vacation.
Spacious main level with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, large kitchen/living area with wood-burning stove, and screened porch with table/chairs for outdoor dining; on lower-level, 1 additional bath and large rec room/bedroom that opens on to outdoor patio; rec room includes satellite TV and Internet access (e-mail or text only; no streaming video).
Central heating, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Bedrooms: 1 king bed, 1 with 2 twin beds, 1 with a double bed, 1 pullout queen sofa in lower level.
Private dock and screened gazebo; fish cleaning table, life jackets, 14' Lund fishing boat, Honda 9HP motor, 1 tank of gas, and Grumman 17' Standard Aluminum canoe provided. There is no public access to Wasson Lake; guests may NOT launch their own boats or other water craft.
Lakes holds pan fish, bass, Northern, and crappies. We can't guarantee it but last season a couple of decent Walleye Pike were pulled out of the lake. Remember to bring your fishing gear.
**NOTE: All bedding (sheets, blankets, pillows) is provided; however, guests must bring their own kitchen and bath towels, other personal items, and fishing gear. Guests provide their own meals.
Much of the forest around Wasson Lake is second and third growth and is currently dying. Thus, in 2013, we began an overdue project of forest stewardship by selectively harvesting overgrown poplars and aspen, and planting over 4500 new red pine, white pine and hardwood seedlings. Within a very short time, we will see a beautiful new forest begin to emerge. This summer we spotted Red Pine that are now almost 3 feet tall. The forest is coming!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 1975
About: We are retired university professors with deep connections to the beauty of northern Minnesota. When we moved to Rochester, NY from Minneapolis (in 1989), we kept this cabin because we knew we could never replace it with anything better. We build the original cabin in 1975, remodeled it extensively around 2008, added new appliances around 2013, and have tried to make it an enjoyable place to relax, commune with nature, and restore our "souls." Our local managers are Casey and Jessika, who will be available for your questions and needs during your stay at The Hideaway.
Why Bigfork, MN, USA:
25 acres of private woodlands on a beautiful lake with no public access. Heaven in the woods!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Private, secluded, quiet, beautiful, relaxing, comfortable, just enough connection with the noisy world! Fully equipped for gourmet cooking and dining, comfortable sleeping, and relaxing days at our lakefront.
