At 3600+sq ft, the spacious, open-concept floor plan is great for families or large groups yet cozy enough for a romantic couple’s weekend. The latest amenities abound including main level heated floors, a gourmet kitchen with knotty alder cabinetry, one-of-a kind Brazilian granite countertops, a gas range and all new cookware.

Four additional high-top chairs at the center island ensure ample seating for the whole family.
Comfortable seating surrounds the 42” lighted gas fireplace with floor to ceiling stone surround, hand hewn cedar mantle and 55” flat panel LCD smart TV. Built-in surround sound, Free WiFi, Direct TV with movie and music channels, a Blue Ray player and a wide array of DVDs invite you to settle in for movie night after an active day of hiking, swimming, biking, golfing or skiing. The great room’s stunning 20 foot wall of windows and unique real-log accents will make you feel a part of nature no matter the weather.
The main floor Master Bedroom includes its own private walkout, king sized bed, walk-in closet and private Master Bath complete with a six foot soaking tub, dual his/her sinks and a massive walk-in shower with multiple shower heads.
The convenient custom built coat lockers and a large laundry room with front loading washer and dryer are located just off the heated garage.
Upstairs the cozy reading loft overlooking the family room offers views of the lake and ski hill and is the perfect place to relax with a good book or to gather with your crew for board games or cards. Two upper bedrooms each offer a queen bed with luxury bedding, spectacular lake views and a high definition flat panel TV with Direct TV. The fourth bedroom (bunkroom) was built with the kids in mind but can be perfect for multiple adults with 3 full sized beds and 4 twins, all built extra-long to accommodate even the taller guests. This bunkroom is a great movie or gaming hideaway with its 50” flat panel TV and PlayStation 3.
One of Fairway Ridge's finest features is the wonderful slab on grade design allowing for a direct walkout to the huge concrete patio with its antique sugar kettle fire pit, plenty of seating, a BBQ grill and option for stocked firewood. 175’ of Wynne Lake shoreline and a floating dock are conveniently located directly across from the public boat launch.

About Nancy Fisher
Growing up on the Iron Range gave me such a special appreciation of northeastern MN. To me 'the cabin' means a forest setting, rocks, pines, crisp clean waters. Todd had been to the area several times growing up and had also come to love the unique look and small town feel of this fabulous corner of the state. We currently live in the twin cities area but return to our favorite place every chance we have.
Nancy Fisher purchased this House in 2013
Why Nancy Fisher chose Biwabik
Very few places in the country can offer what the Iron Range and Giant's Ridge can boast- year round FUN! Todd and I love to golf and what better than to have three of the top courses in the state (The Quarry and The Legend at Giant's Ridge and The Wilderness at Fortune Bay), just minutes away. The beauty of spring and fall hikes, biking The Mesabi Trail, cruising the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area on our ATVs, skiing, snowboarding or cross country skiing Giant's Ridge or making use of the thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails... the options are endless. With fabulous fishing, amazing scenery and countless places to see and explore, we knew Voyageurs Retreat at Giant's Ridge was the perfect place for us to build our vacation home. We love every moment here spent with family and friends and we are thrilled to share this area with you and your loved ones.
What makes this House unique
Fairway Ridge was custom designed by Todd to be a family friendly vacation home that would be loved by all. One of our favorite features is the slab-on-grade design which allows for a direct walkout from the main level to the back patio. This walkout from the dining room and the home's open-concept floor plan make for a huge entertainment area that is exceptional for large gatherings and so convenient for even a party of 2. The bunk room is a kids paradise, the reading loft a perfect relaxation spot and the views simply stunning! This luxury lake home awaits you in one of the most beautiful places on earth- northeastern MN.

Our stay at the Fisher’s Retreat was nothing less than spectacular! It is a stunning home with breathtaking views of the wilderness and the ski hill. There was plenty of room for our 4 children, spouses and grandchildren. It is beautifully decorated and the perfect place to relax and play games with the family when the skiing is done for the day. I can’t imagine a better place to stay! We will be back!! If you have a chance to stay at Fisher’s Retreat, do it! You won’t regret it! (PS. They have a bunk room that every grandchild is sure to love!)
Our group had an absolutely wonderful stay here, AGAIN, for the second year in a row! The area is gorgeous, the cabin comfy and beautiful, the local ski resort top-notch and snowmobile trails SUPER fun! Another gem, is the owner, Nancy - she was friendly, helpful, extremely accommodating, responsive and just generally wonderful. Thank you for another amazing vacation - see you next year :)
We enjoyed a lovely weekend “up north.” What a gorgeous property with great proximity to lots of fun winter activities at Giant’s Ridge.
Awesome Fairway Ridge Lake Home better than the pictures!
We stayed at the Fairway Ridge home on Wynne Lake weekend Oct 20th and 21st 2017 with our adult children and their spouses.
The home was immaculate, better than the pictures and the descriptions.
We thoroughly enjoyed how close the home was to Giants Ridge Resort and the Quarry golf course.
The owner was very prompt, accommodating, clear on their information and processes. The welcome basket and surprise treats were and added bonus.We already are looking for dates to rent during the winter for downhill skiing and cross county skiing at Giants Ridge.

Relaxation, Renewal, Revival!
We are 16 girl cousins from all over the states and Mexico that meet once a year for a long weekend.
This beautiful home was the ideal setting for rest, relaxation, and revival.
The kitchen is wonderfully appointed - it had every possible utensil imaginable, including a mandolin, and a first aid kit to fix the damage done by eager slicers!
The cozy sitting room upstairs is the best ever for a cup of coffee and sharing time between loved ones.
Passionate games of Farkel were had until late in the night at the roomy dining table. Losers were gracious, mostly.
Young adventurous souls hit the water in the kayaks - this is Minnesota in October! For those not quite so adventurous, endless games of beanbag toss were held with no lack of enthusiasm......don't know about the losers there......and for those with lesser sense of adventure, but not enthusiasm, crafts were done on the dining room table, and there were no losers.
Making S'mores around the fire pit is truly a bonding experience. Oh the choices!
A morning visit from a gorgeous fox was a little bonus.
Walking the trails around us- the fall colors- just going down to the calm lakeshore with a cup of coffee and taking in the beauty, there is plenty to enjoy right at the property.
BUT! Can a bunch of older cousins stay put without soaking up some local adventure? We also hit a fabulous antique store in Gilbert (the proprietor was mighty happy to see 16 old ladies walk in ---- and out with a ton of precious stuff....)
Pizza at Vi's was awesome, especially for our cousin named Vi.....be sure to have your picture taken on the deck.....
A day trip to Duluth was the topping for those who have never seen Lake Superior!
Packing up and leaving is always hard, but we have precious memories of a weekend of relaxation, renewal, and revival!
Thank you, Todd and Nancy -----you're the best!
The condition of this home is outstanding, with high-quality ammenities.
Our group of 12 truly enjoyed this gorgeous home during a recent golf trip. The property has everything we needed, and the amenities are outstanding. The owners made us feel welcome before, during, and after our stay. Top notch property and management!
