Property description

Strand Island is a private 42 acre island located on 11,000 acre Pelican Lake in Orr, Minnesota... 3 hours and 40 minutes from Minneapolis. The 108 year old fully remodeled main cabin has 8 bedrooms- each bedroom has it's own antique sink. There are 1.50 baths, a totally remodeled kitchen with two refrigerators and two freezers, a stone fireplace, a sunroom and a huge screened porch with card tables and 4 swinging beds suspended from the ceiling… There is also a sauna house with a shower, a washer and dryer and a 75 year old log cabin that sleeps four and has a card table.
There are two other out buildings... one is a game room with a air hockey table and the other is a TV cabin or movie house with a large screen TV... we do not have cable TV, but we have an Apple TV loaded with tons of movies for rainy days!
The island is 42 totally private acres, undeveloped and wild- explore the woods or cast a line off the dock. This is the only home on the island!! The 11,000 acre Pelican Lake is excellent for crappie and bass fishing, boating or water sports.

Need a boat? We can rent you our pontoon for $500 a week- it is not fancy, but it gets the job done! It is 21 foot pontoon with a 35 horse motor & our caretaker will meet you at the dock with the pontoon to give you tips on operation.... or you can bring your own boats to fish or ski. There are 5 large parking spots on the mainland at Deer Lodge and a dock to easily load up the boat when you arrive Strand Island is about a 10 minute boat ride from the dock at Deer Lodge... or about 1 mile from mainland. The island will be all yours to roam, fish, play or pick raspberries in total seclusion.
Kayak around the 9500 feet of shoreline or out to the nearby state park on Big Island- a 210 acre nearby island owned by the State of Mn. You have the entire island to yourself- no other cabins on the island- play, explore, hike or fish one of several private bays.

There are two kayaks there for your use and a flat bottom metal row boat.

There is large grass field as well... to play wiffle ball or football for the kids.

About the owner: We have 5 kids and live in Minneapolis...

Why the Owner Chose Orr, MN, USA:
We saw the aerial shot of Strand Island and were amazed enough to go take a look- the idea of a 42 private island I think appeals to anyone- it is wild, private and the home has the unique character of a 100 + year old lodge... we fell in love with it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
alone on a private island- lots of benefits!!
