Come enjoy your up north vacation at our cabin and guest cottage the "Whistling Pines at Echo Bay". Our year round cabin is located on the lovely shores of Bay Lake (2300+ acres) a short 2 hour drive north of the Twin Cities in the very private and wooded Echo Bay neighborhood. We have a 3 bedroom/2 bath log cabin plus guest cottage. Our lot features many tall Norway pines and oaks that will transport you immediately to a place of relaxation as you listen to them whistling in the wind while taking in the sunset, enjoying a bonfire, fishing off the dock or swimming off the sandy beach.
Our cabin boasts of up north charm with modern amenities and lots of area for playing on land and by sea. Enjoy our backyard watching sunsets on the dock or from the large deck overlooking the lake, swimming area, small sand beach and the bonfire pit. Our front yard is large and flat with plenty of space for yard games between the cabin and guest cottage.
The main cabin has a large great room featuring a cobblestone gas fireplace and french door sliders for enjoying the breezes off the lake. The master bedroom has a king bed with a seating area for reading a book or enjoying coffee while overlooking the lake along with an attached master bath including a tiled tub/shower. There are two additional bedrooms which can sleep 6-7 with a 3/4 main bathroom. The guest cottage sleeps 6-7 with a kitchenette and full bath from May-September.
Echo Bay has a private mowed walking path for our guests to enjoy and is lovely for a morning or evening walk. Bay Lake has wonderful swimming, fishing, boating and is home to Ruttgers Resort and the Lonesome Pine Restaurant & Bar both of which you can boat and dock at for meals or drinks. We look forward to hosting you and your family soon.
