About the Property
Cabin, Studio (Sleeps 10)
A lovely 3 bedroom cabin nestled in the pines on a large lot. It is a tranquil, serene setting for a family or families to enjoy a vacation. Sleeps 8 maximum. There is a large family room with a vaulted ceiling looking out at the bay. The cabin has an modern eat-in kitchen or you may barbecue outside under the stars while the kids make some 'smores' at the fire pit. There is a deck and a screened in porch. Our bathroom is a 3/4 with a shower along with a clothes washer and dryer...if you really get the urge!!!!!
Lake Ada is a 1200 acre lake that offers all water sports and great fishing. There is a public access ramp just a five minute walk away and you can tie your boat up at the dock. We have a sandy beach that slopes gently into the lake, ideal for small children.
There is over 30 miles of state forest located directly behind the cabin, which provides excellent hiking, dirt biking, a nice stroll in the woods as well as privacy.
At night, you may sit out at the end of the dock and hope to get a view of the Northern Lights or look up to see the Bald Eagle high over the bay.

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We live in St. Louis Park and have four sons. We have been coming up to The Lake for over 20 years. My wife and her family have been coming up to The Lake for over 50 years. It is an ideal setting for kids growing up and adults to relax. There is good fishing, water sports and the Bald Eagles gliding over head looking for a meal. You are far removed from the hub-bub of the Twin Cities and much closer to the Northern Lights!!!!
Why the Owner Chose Backus, MN, USA:
My wife and her family had a cabin just down the road from ours, where they spent their summers. The family originated the July 4th boat parade, which has now become a lake tradition. They have been on the lake for over 50 years. When you come up you will see why.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You have the lake in front of you and the woods behind you. The cabin is the second home from the end on a cul de sac. There are no cabins behind us, just the woods. So it makes for a very quiet setting. If someone comes up North Bay Drive, they live there. North Bay Drive is really just a driveway to the cabins on the right. At night, sit out on the end of the dock and watch the Milky Way and if you get lucky..the Northern Lights.
