About the Property
4 bedroom, 2 Bath with Expansive Level Lakefront, Beautiful Panoramic Lake Views
The rest of the house contains the four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a laundry room, and another family room.
Up a short carpeted flight of stairs are three bedrooms. They all have Wildlife themes and hand-crafted log furniture.. Two bedrooms have French doors that open up to a large lakeside screen porch. The Bear-themed room has a Queen-size bed and a crib. The master bedroom, with an Owl and Pine Cone theme, has a King-size bed. The third bedroom has a Duck theme and contains a Queen/XL Twin bunk log bed.
The three upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom that has a large vanity with two sinks and many drawers and cupboards to stash your toiletries. It also has a deep, jetted tub/shower.
The downstairs bedroom has a Fishing Theme with a Queen log bed and wardrobe. There is a 3/4 bathroom across the hall. That bathroom has a large vanity also .
The laundry room is fully equipped with a new HE washer/dryer, utility sink, and all the supplies you will need for your stay.
The downstairs family room has ample seating with two sofas (One is a double hide-a-bed.), rocker recliner, and more. This area has a flat screen television and a children's play area also. This room also has a no-step exit out to the lakefront. We have added a work station with a all-in-one printer for those to need to do some work while on vacation.
Outside, on the lake side, there is a large concrete patio with patio furniture. On the driveway side, there is an additional large concrete patio with a gas grill. Down by the lake is the fire pit for the daytime hot dog roast or the evening campfires.
We also have a Boathouse that has been converted to a rec room. It has a ping pong and foosball table, and a dart board. There is a music system inside with outdoor speakers so you can have music for your guests playing inside and outside. The boathouse is a great place for the guests who like to burn off a little energy or just want some separate space.
Our property has a 60 foot long dock and a 3000 pound capacity boat lift with electric assist to make getting out on the lake a breeze. The dock has electricity available for charging boat batteries. The swimming area is accessed from the dock, because the shoreline is rocky. The water level where the sand bottom begins is about a foot and a half. At the end of the dock, it is 4 feet deep. We have put in a small beach area in front of the boat house for little ones to have fun in the sand. We have a canoe, paddle boat, and two 10 foot kayaks available for guest use. The kayaks are stored in the boat house along with a number of life jackets.
On the west side of the property, we have a screened, lighted fish-cleaning building with a large stainless steel table to make fish cleaning convenient and bug-free. There are outlets for electric filet knives and a garden hose attachment for easy clean up.
Also, our long circular driveway gives the property lots of space for parking cars and boat trailers. Our property is quite spacious so everyone can have privacy to getaway and relax. We love this lake home and are sure that you will agree!

This is a very kid-friendly property. The boathouse is a converted game room. The large lawn is great for playing yard games and we supply many choices. The sandy beach area is a great play space for the little ones too. We have lots of water and sand toys available for use. We have toys, games, movies, and books for inside play also. We have extra equipment for babies/toddlers such as two pack-n-plays, a large stroller, high chair and booster seat.

Our lake home sits on one of the prime fishing bays of Leech Lake, Trader's Bay. We are conveniently located near many resorts which carry groceries, bait, and gas. They also have boats available to rent.
For those who don't fish, or are looking for other entertainment options, the town of Walker has much to offer. There are lots of fun specialty gift stores, boutiques, coffee shops, and artists malls. They have many good restaurant choices for budget minded people to those looking for fine dining. Most of the area towns have a full schedule of activities throughout the summer.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We have lived in southern Minnesota, farm country, for most of our married life. We have four children, all grown, with whom we shared our love of the great outdoors on many summer camping trips. Our favorite places to camp were the State Parks in Minnesota. We also had great trips to the Black Hills, Colorado, Wyoming, Alaska, and Canada. It seems we gravitated a lot to the north woods to hike, bike, fish, and camp over the years.
Why the Owner Chose Walker, MN, USA:
We bought our lake place on Leech to continue enjoying the great outdoors, but now with all the comforts of home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property has all the comforts of home with untouched nature just outside the door. It is the best of both worlds.
