Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I, along with my brothers, purchased this lake home from a friend in 1991 as a family cabin. As time went on, I bought out my brothers and began to rent it out. Many improvements have been made. I am in my 60s and hope to retire in time and live part time in the lake home. I have been in the trucking business since I bought a truck at age 21. I have 3 grown kids and live in Florida and the Twin Cites. I ride peddle bikes and my Harley for fun and exercise.

Why the Owner Chose McGregor, Minnesota, United States of America:
The cabin sits on a level over-size lot with a sandy beach where my children enjoyed playing when they were young. The cabin is roomy and dressed in 12' knotty pine. With a kitchen, diningroom, livingroom and all season porch on the main level there is plenty of room for large groups to socialize. I have always found it to be a perfect relaxing get-away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The 4 seasons are so distinctive! It's great to experience the change of seasons at the lake. It's like a new place 4 times a year. The cabin faces west so each night a new and different sunset awaits you.
