About the Property

Lots of fun activities year round. The place to be over the 4th of July.

Great location on Sugar Lake in Wright County MN. Two story Lake home with over 300 feet of natural lakeshore. Includes large deck area, swimming pool, fire pit with log swing and two docks on the lake. Great fishing for Blue Gill, Crappie's, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Muskelenge and walleyes. Many can be caught right from the dock. Pontoon Boat ready to go available for rent. Space to dock your own boat included at no extra charge.
The caretakers live in the Guest House. The guest house is about 100 feet from the main home.
Water levels on Sugar Lake do not vary that much. Sugar Lake has two natural water supplies feeding it, and there is an outlet on the north end of the lake flowing out to the Crow River. The outlet has a dam thet keeps the lake level very consistant. The Normal High Water Level is 988.1ft and the current DNR water report says we are at 987.11ft. So we are 2 inches below the normal high water level. It is raining as I am typing this, and it is supposed to rain all this next week. I am sure the water level will be normal this season. We have been on Sugar Lake for 11 years, and there has never been any problems with the water level being too low as to cause any issues.
As fas as fishing goes, Sugar Lake is very good and if you want Largemouth Bass, you can easily catch your limit everyday. This is also the only lake in the area with Muskies. The 2012 DNR report shows that the adult Muskie population is very strong. It also shows a continuously improving Waleye population. We don't fish for waleyes much in the summer, but do catch them through the ice. As for the fishing, there are a lot of reeds around the south end of the lake and around our area. We have a lot of fun catching Bass with Topwater baits in these area's. There are also large cabbage weed beds that provide excellent Bass fishing especially if the shallow area's aren't producing. There are a number of sunken islands, underwater points and other fishing structure. We used to own a home on Clearwater, the lake level can get very low and the water is green. We had a lot of summers that we could barely get in our out from our dock. That is why we bought this home instead. Sugar Lake is very clear and has clean water. We can catch Bass and Sunfish right from the dock most of the time. Our home is pocated very close to about six other lakes, including Clearwater. If the fishing is poor, it is only 10 to 15 minutes to go to a different lake. Don't forget to drain live wells and remove all weeds before transporting your boat.
So much to do in the Wright County area:
-Wright County Swappers meet is open every Saturday from April to October. Memorial weekend, 4th of July weekend and Labor day weekend, it is open Friday and saturday.
-Buffalo occasional sales are the 1st weekend of every month with over 15 antique, collectable, thrift shops open. Lots of great lunch stops along the way.
-5 golf courses within 20 miles
-Annandale 4th of July is a weeklong celebration with parade, carnival, street dances.
-Clearwater Rodeo-August 14, 15,+16 with rodeo dance following the rodeo.
-Wright County Fair July 29-August 2nd. Bull Riding, demo derby, tractor pull, live music, talent show, carnival and lots of fun/food.
