House details:

This 2800 sq. ft. home was built to entertain groups. It's located on beautiful Sabin Lake and sits directly across the lake from the top rated Legends Golf Course. Shallow water, sandy lake bottom, great for kids.

The main floor consists of the mudroom with front load washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen (crock pot, blender, waffle maker etc), large center island and table, living room with TV and gas fireplace. The master suite has a queen bed, TV, double sinks, large shower and bathtub. The 2nd bedroom on this floor has a queen bed and is next to the bathroom that has a shower/tub.

The downstairs consists of a large family room with comfy sectional couch. A 60' TV w/ sound bar is great for watching sports and movies. There is a walk up bar area with a sink and another full size fridge with freezer so you have plenty of room for food/drinks. Bedroom 3 is on this lower level and has a queen size bed. Bedroom 4 is a custom built bunk room that has 2 twin beds over 2 full beds. There is a large full bathroom on this level with double sinks, bath/shower combo.

There is a deck off the upstairs dining area with a gas grill and sitting area. Walk down the steps to a large patio with 2 tables, chairs, fire pit and nice gradual slope to the lake.

Enjoy the use of our paddle boat, 2 paddle boards and 2 kayaks and explore beautiful Sabin Lake. Our lake shore is sandy and gradual slope so it is perfect for kids. The lake shore is the main reason we bought this lot! Fish or just hang out on the dock. We have lots of sand toys, floaties, life jackets for you to use.

There are hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails just across the street. The trails offer a dynamic path along the streams and large forested areas. The trails connect to the well known Mesabi Trail (which runs from Grand Rapids to Ely).

We paid extra attention to detail and kept the renter in mind when we designed this home. It truly is perfect for groups and we hope you love it as much as we do. Thank you for your interest in our home!

About Amber Herzog

We have 3 boys and live a few hours away in Andover, MN. We built this home with the plan to entertain and rent it to groups of friends or families. We absolutely LOVE it and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Amber Herzog purchased this house in 2013

Why Amber Herzog chose Northeast

We looked for a rental property for several years and finally found the perfect location to build in Voyageurs Retreat (located across the lake from Giants Ridge Golf & Ski Resort). It has the best of both worlds- golf, hiking, biking, canoeing and swimming in the summer. Downhill ski, snowboard, cross county ski, sledding and snow shoeing in the winter. There are also hundreds of miles of ATV trails and snow mobile trails just a few miles away.

What makes this house unique

Swim, boat, golf, hike/bike/walk on all the trails in the summer. Ski, snow board, sled, snow mobile in the winter. Need I say more. It's the best of both worlds. There's nothing else like it!

Fantastic place!!

  • 5 of 5

Rented for a golf weekend with 10 friends. Plenty of space, great amenities including the fire pit. Nearby trails and excellent golf! Amber was excellent to work with, answering any questions about our stay. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks Amber!

First family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family gathering for our own immediate family. We decided a year ago to book a place in Northern MN. We are originally from southern MN but have lived in Puerto Rico for the past 20 years. Our family is grown and is spread out from Indiana, Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico. We wanted our family to become familiar with northern MN as it was special to me and my wife from when we were young. The kids could not believe we booked a place to stay so fast after deciding to start a family gathering tradition. Normally we can procrastinate a bit. (We call it island time.) When we started looking for places we came across this one early in the search and booked it. If it delivered half of what was stated, we would be happy. Our grandkids loved the toys, the beach, and the space. Our family went all over the lake on the paddle boards and kayaks. We went on hikes almost everyday exploring the area. You allowed us to have a wonderful first family get together. One of our son in laws said "this place knocked it out of the park" for a family gathering. The week ended too soon. We all agreed to return again next year. Thank you Amber for sharing your home with us. Ed & Deb

Fun with my family in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Your home is beautifully decorated, spacious, and perfect for our family gathering. We had a great time in and on the water. Thank you for allowing us to use your kayaks and paddle boards! We biked and hikes the nearby trails and paths. It is such a lovely area. We appreciated your willingness to let us check in early and for responding to our emails so promptly when we had questions. There were always things to do nearby and there was plenty of room for all of us to relax in the evening. Many thanks!!

Beautiful Home on a Peaceful Lake

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful, well appointed home with everything we needed and more! We had our 2 and 1/2 year old granddaughter with us and were amazed at how 'kid friendly' the house is (indoor and out door toys, life preservers, highchair, booster seat, dishes, eating utensils, etc.). Of course, plenty to entertain the adults as well! Also, a visit from a neighboring pup (Arlo) while we were outside even allowed us to get our 'dog fix' while we were there! ;) Unfortunately, poor planning on our part and a storm provided by Mother Nature kept us from using the fire pit. That's about the only thing that would have made the stay any better!

Thanks, Amber, for sharing your lovely home with us!

Not sure what else our family could have wanted/needed

  • 5 of 5

Except we could have needed more time to enjoy. Excellent communication from the early on reservations throughout the entire process. As mentioned by everyone, Amber's house had everything. Our family appreciated the high quality furnishings from the faucets to the towels. All the cookware, garage supplies (extension cords etc) to the life jackets were available and good quality/condition.

A full size downstairs refrigerator was extremely valuable since we were the kind of family (two of three families had kids) that brought double and triple of everything so the space was appreciated.

The Friday we were there was a postcard picture perfect sunny summer day and we only saw one other small boat the whole day! Hiking nearby was fun and easy to burn off the gluttonous food and drink we consumed.

Everything you need in Northern Minnesota

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with everything needed for our family of 10. Beautiful, calm lake where kids could explore on paddle boards and kayaks. Fishing was not so successful, but hiking trails and Giants Ridge golf courses were fantastic. Wii was a hit, too! Owners easy to communicate with. And wonderful weather for our first time in Northern Minnesota!
