Car: Recommended

Itasca county is known for its 1000 lakes and great hiking and cross country ski trails. There is a casino in Deer River which is 10 miles from the property. Grand Rapids is only 6 miles away with all of its benefits and activities.

NOTE: Town Line Road on the map above is now called Peterson Bay Road. Just take a left on that road and follow it to first right turn and up the small hill to the log home. 34882 Peterson Bay rd.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hi Everyone! I build this gorgeous log home on Little Bass Lake in 2004. But I have had this property since 1996 and still also own a small cabin next door to this rental home. Therefore I am often and usually around - especially in summer - in case you need anything. My goal is that your stay be a happy and relaxing one. I am originally from So St. Paul but have lived and worked for IBM in the Rochester area for years when not up enjoying the Grand Rapids area. I've been coming with my family to this area on summer vacations since I was 5 years old or so and just fell in love with the area early on. It is still unbelievable to me that Itasca county is home to 1000+ of our 10000 lakes.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Rapids, MN, USA:
As I said, I have been coming to this area with my family on vacations since I was 5 and I just love it here. I sit on the dock at nights listening to the loons, or the frogs start the croaking and I can just feel any remaining stress leave me. I hope you will feel that too. And if you are lucky, you might get treated to a northern lights display.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
What I always loved about raising my son and nieces and nephews here was that the lake was just perfect for family. Its big enough that we could go tubing during the day while its also not so big that allowing the kids to go boating or out in the canoe alone will lead to any problems. They just really can't get lost or into too much trouble.
