About the Property
Fabulous/gorgeous cabin perfect for a small group or a family getaway!
A rustic “feel” with modern conveniences! Our goal when building this home was to create a cozy, “at the lake” feel, while still providing all of the modern conveniences of home. Wi-fi, cable, smart DVD/BluRay Player and more! We just completed construction and final touches May 2014, so everything in the home is new.
The Cabin on Blake is our “Little Slice of Paradise”, we truly hope that you enjoy it as much as we do! (Please check out our own personal website and VIDEO with slideshow for more details and a better "feel" for the cabin! Link Below )
Main Floor: The oversized windows and sliding doors flood the main floor with natural light and provide gorgeous views of the lake and wildlife! The open floorplan- kitchen, dining room, and living room is perfect for entertaining or family time. Custom log features, such as our amazing log railings and knotty pine feature wall make this home feel like an up north cabin!
Kitchen: Everything you'd possibly need to cook for two or a full house! The kitchen features modern conveniences with new appliances, dishwasher, flat top stove, microwave, many small appliances, and is fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans. The oversized butcher block island is surrounded by a large amount of additional countertops, more than enough for even the most ambitious chef! Custom log barstools, custom log and mason jar light fixtures, and so much more make this an amazing space.
Dining Room: The Dining Room is surrounded by two sets of 7-foot sliding glass doors, so even when dining at the table you still feel like you are outside enjoying the views. The log kitchen table can easily fit 6-8 people.
Living Room: The Living Room is anchored with a large sectional and recliner chair and offers a 50”+ flat screen TV mounted in the corner so it is able to be seen from anywhere in the open floorplan area. The TV has a Bluray/DVD player with a large selection of DVDs (many childrens) and cable with several hundred channels to choose from.
Main Floor Bathroom: The main floor bathroom is custom finished with knotty pine wainscoting, a full bathroom with a shower and bath.
Master Bedroom: The crown jewel of the bedrooms! This bedroom features a King bed, a 46” TV, gorgeous custom log furniture, and a sliding glass door which allows you the ultimate views from bed! Drink a cup of morning coffee right from bed and enter onto your private section of the enormous deck with views of the quiet serene lake.
Bedroom #2: The second bedroom also features custom log furniture, a full bed, and 2 additional twin beds.
HUGE wrap around Deck: Our deck is a masterpiece of its own! The deck spans 2 entire sides of the 28’ x 40’ cabin. Whether your needs are outdoor dining, socializing with friends, or quiet lounging space…. Cabin on Blake can accommodate you! It also features our gas and charcoal grill.
Lower Walk-out Level:
Family room: Oversized Family Room includes a sectional couch, large 50” TV with smart Bluray/DVD player, extra kitchen table for playing games or extra dining space, and an almost full 2nd kitchen. The large windows in this space provide an amazing view of the lake and full walk-out basement to the shore!
2nd Kitchen/Kitchenette: This space is located in the open concept family room. It is complete with a full-sized refrigerator and freezer, sink, many cabinets and a large counter space. This space is perfect for a bar area, extra prep station for meals, or meal prep for outside meals down by the lake.

Blake Lake is an amazing fishing lake, and some of the very best fishing is right off of our dock and to the left. The ice fishing can be fantastic too!
Blake Lake is the starting point for snowmobile trails that run all of the way up to Superior, WI and beyond. Many residents on the lake bought their property there because of this feature!

About the owner: The Pannkuk's currently reside in the Twin Cities, but have been part of the Big Blake community for 28 years. Mrs. Pannkuk grew up going to Big Blake Lake through her childhood. Now with 2 young daughters, yet another generation is able to enjoy the magic and fun of Big Blake Lake!
Why the Owner Chose Balsam Lake, WI, USA:
Pride in ownership is found throughout this cabin! The Pannkuk's built this home with the guests' needs in mind, and almost every detail is custom designed. The cabin sits on a perfect lot to enjoy the lake and has wonderful views! No large stairs to get down to or from the lake here!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This cabin is special! Large amounts of care were taken with custom features throughout the cabin. Log handrails, custom rustic furniture, and a special cabin charm is something you find in every nook and cranny. There is a lot of love, care, and planning that has gone into this home. The lot and lake access are perfect for any group large or small. Great firepit, boating, fishing, swimming, in the summer. Great snowmobiling access, ice fishing or just relaxing in the winter!
