Big Spirit Lake (also known as 'the quiet lake) is the largest of Iowa's Great Lakes. This cabin is within 15 minutes of three excellent 18-hole courses, Arnold's Amusement Park, all manner of water sports activities, bike trails, state parks. But the cabin itself is in a quiet neighborhood, away from the noise and crowds. There is a shared dock on the main lake. Immediately behind the cabin is a quiet lagoon with a boat hoist installed. This lagoon also affords a modern boat ramp for public use. The lagoon provides direct and immediate access to the main lake.
