About the property

2 Bdrooms, 1 Bathroom

Welcome to our clean and quiet family cabin located on beautiful Lake Benedict. This 2 bedroom cabin comfortably sleeps 4. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a full sized bed. With a living room, full kitchen, bathroom, and screened in porch, this cabin is equipped with everything you need to relax and enjoy the north woods.

A boat slip is included and the swimming area offers a sand beach with a swimming raft, paddle boat, kayaks, and canoes. The grounds also include a tennis court, shuffle board, swing sets, horse shoes, and a playground for the kids. Located 7 miles from Walker our cabin is the located just off the beaten path and the Paul Bunyan trail is only a 1/4 mile away. Because Benedict Lake is secluded and 'off the beaten path' one is able to escape the normal vacation land hubbub and relax in a peaceful atmosphere... especially in the evenings, enchanted by sunsets and singing loons.

Benedict Lake is a small, secluded lake (488 acres) which flows its spring fed waters into Leech Lake, Minnesota's third largest lake. Here one can find the ideal conditions for all around- water recreation with the calm waters of Benedict just a cast away from your vacation home window, and the world-famous fishing waters of Leech Lake only minutes away by boat.

This north woods home is perfect for all types of vacationers; from curious nature lovers, to sun bathers, to adventurous fishermen. If some pure and simple rest and relaxation is what you are after, you might be satisfied just to lounge on our sandy beach, sheltered on its north side by a beautiful rock wall and lapping at its south side is a spacious swimming area with a gradual declining slope leading out to the swim raft. If you're a novice angler and don't feel like tackling the big lake just yet, you might just try your luck in some of Benedict's 'secret' spots. But don't be surprised if you tie into a big one.. In recent years, some of Minnesota's biggest lunker walleyes have been hooked in Benedict Lake.

But if you think the 'Big One' might be lurking in the wide open water, or you seek the thrill and mystique of a big lake, then you can boat into Leech and fish Squaw Point, the Narrows, Goose Island, or simply park at the city dock and spend some time dining or shopping in the town of Walker.

Walker offers many excellent restaurants, bars and entertainment, unique-one of kind stores, coffee and ice cream shops bait and water rental spots. Walker is a destination that you will want to visit again.

very quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the latest stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and designer furniture, this place is not for you. If you are looking for knotty pine walls, fish themed lamp shades, quiet shaded screened in porch and postcard perfect view of the lake, then this is your place. Tom the owner was easy to work with, available when needed but not in the way. Lake Benedict has a channel that allows for easy access to Leech Lake and Walker is a short drive away. It has a nice assortment of restaurants and shops. Our dog loved our daily walks on the Paul Bunyan trail which is right there. We had a great stay.
