About the Property

4bed/3bath - 2,735 Sq. Ft. Lake Home - with game room and many amenities

This beautifully detailed 2,735 sq. ft. lake home has breathtaking views; with abundant eagles and waterfowl circling the lake. Ice fishing and area snowmobile trails are great and well maintained. The lake holds all species of fish, but has good numbers of walleye, northern, and large pan fish. The house is conveniently located near a snowmobile trail that runs up the center of the state to Mille Lacs and on. The home sits in a private setting on huge double lot (150 feet of lake shore + ¾ acre lot). Conveniently located one hour north of the twin cities on Green lake. The lake is the largest in Isanti County - over 800 acres in size and provides excellent fishing and recreational opportunities.


Guided hunting and fishing trips from locals that have lived on the lake 25+ years are available.

Most furniture is brand new and very beautiful. The home sleeps 9 comfortably; and up to 12. Proximity to Pine Brook Inn (excellent food), convenience store, liquor store, and bait shop all within 5 minutes. The Hi-Way Inn bar and grill is not even two miles away and has great pizza. They also offer delivery. 15 minute drive to Cambridge or Princeton for just about everything you may need.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I had the pleasure of growing up on this amazing lake. I grew up on the south side of the lake and had always admired this home growing up. During college I returned home as often as I could for fishing and hunting with dad. I now live in the Twin Cities, but return to lake often. The one-hour drive from Minneapolis makes it feasible to just come up for a night or two and be back in the metro quickly.

Why the Owner Chose Princeton, MN, USA:
This property provides great opportunity for year around fun! I have fond memories of catching fish after fish right behind the house. Some of the best days of catching big sunfish in June come from an overhanging tree on the shoreline that is now ours. I also have vivid memories on the ice of disappearing bobbers turning into 13” crappies not even 150 yards from the house. I now have a 10 pound walleye and multiple ducks on the wall that I have harvested from the lake. I could go on about my memories on this lake for 10 pages, but to sum it up – some of the best are tubing, learning to slalom ski, wake boarding, trophy bass, walleye, and just enjoying the natural beauty of the lake. The seasons are amazing here. In the spring you will have the ducks, geese, trumpeter swans, etc. All summer long you can enjoy great fishing and recreation + beautiful sunsets. One of the best restaurants in the state is within 5 minutes. In the fall the changing colors of the trees is accompanied by an abundant population of bald eagles. Along with the eagles are many beautiful diving ducks, swans, and geese. After the local ducks depart, the huge northern flights of mallards move in. Before you know it the lake begins freezing up and we are out there pounding crappies and walleyes. The winter brings great opportunities for ice fishing and snowmobiling. The house is just off a very popular snowmobile trail in a stretch between the Hi-Way Inn and The Mystic Bar. My family and I will now be enjoying this home when we are in the country. While in Brazil, we will be giving you and your family the opportunity to experience this beautiful home in this amazing part of the state.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The close proximity to Twin Cities allows families to enjoy a true 'northern' destination without having to sit in the car for an 8 hour round trip. I immediately fell in love with this home when I walked into the living room. The huge room with warm hardwood floors provides one of the best views I have ever seen from a house. The master bedroom and dining room replicate this view. The huge fenced in yard offers unmatched privacy. The spacious and open floor plan offers great accomodations for entertaining large groups of people. All neighbors are very friendly and genuinely happy people. Green lake is the largest lake in Isanti County. At over 800 acres in size it is also the best fishing and recreational lake in the area!
