Just a 5 minute drive to the slopes or the top-rated Legend’s and Quarry golf courses. The main-floor master bedroom has a King sized bed and wonderful master bathroom with a Jetted Tub and separate shower. 3 large bedrooms on the lower level with Queen Beds and down comforters.

The attached, heated, 2-car garage is great in the winter and the Wireless broadband throughout the property will keep you connected.

There is a wonderful 3-season cedar screen porch and an expansive cedar deck overlooking the shoreline. The main level also has a half bath, laundry room with front-loading washer and dryer, and a mud room off the garage.

Voyageurs Retreat: This beautiful home sits in an amazing new development which you will just love. All the homes are built to conform to strict architectural guidelines to complement the natural surroundings and to add to the overall beauty of this area. All roads are paved. The home has city utilities (water and sewer), natural gas, high speed internet, digital cable tv, phone. The entire development is beautifully landscaped with dramatic lighting, hiking trails, common swimming beaches with day-use canoes and picnic areas.

Our home sits on a beautiful and peaceful 2.1 acre lot with 335 feet of shoreline and lots of white pines, maples and birch. There is also a wonderful outdoor gathering area surrounding a large fire-ring for great times relaxing around a warm, crackling fire.

Why crowd yourselves into a condo or hotel room, when you can stay in a 5 bedroom private home for the same price (or even less)? This home was built to be a place where you could enjoy spending quality time together, with lots of recreational opportunities.

Our family stayed in the home many times and created our own memories. When the original owners were looking for a new family to own the home - we leapt at the chance.

We know you and your family will enjoy it too!

Mel and I have been sharing our lives for over 10 years. We have a great blended family of 4 children, a son and daughter in-law and 3 incredible grandchildren (so far).

We have a very active lives with many passions - one of which is time well spent with our family up at the lake.

Jim Brown purchased this house in 2012

Mel and I took our family to this home many times and always felt so at home. When the family that originally built it decided to sell - they asked if we'd be interested in purchasing and we leapt at the opportunity.

Giants Ridge is unique because it is one of only two areas in the entire country where you can ski, golf and be on a lake at the same location. There are tons of recreational options available, all within the local area. Giants Ridge offers two of the finest public golf courses in the country (The Quarry & The Legend) and the ski resort is one of the best in the mid-west. Road and Mountain biking, hiking, swimming, ATV riding, snowmobile riding, cross country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, fishing, Frisbee golf, sight-seeing, just to name a few.

The house was specifically designed for groups and families to enjoy time away together. You will find plenty of room to all be together or have space to have private time. We love hanging out on the dock; sitting by a roaring fire or enjoying the sunset from the deck or porch after a day playing in the outdoors. This home will exceed your expectations.

Great Getaway

We had a great time and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful setting, great accomodations, and activities for all seasons. We (5 couples) really enjoyed the beautiful lake and the close proximity of fantastic golf! The house was perfect for us and very well equipped. It was also great to have the central air with different zones to accomodate all of our preferences. The screened 3 season room was also nice for relaxing without bugs! The fire pit area was a routine evening gathering place for our group. I look forward to staying here again!

Awesome ski weekend!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at your beautiful home over looking the lake and ski hills of Giants Ridge. We had 5 families with our kids. We all had plenty of room for playing cards, charades in front of the fire place, and gathering around the kitchen island telling stories of our skiing adventures. Heated garage was great to put our ski stuff after the a long day on the slopes. We had 14" of new snow the day prior to our arrival. The skiing was unbelievable! The house was all plowed out before we arrived and the house was so clean. Thank you! Mark from Eagan, MN

The Best Rental Property in Biwabik

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My family has rented this property 3 times and we love it. It is perfect for 2 or 3 families with children. There is an upstairs loft where the kids sleep, and a basement with 3 bedrooms, a living room and a stocked game room. The main level has a gorgeous master bedroom, a great deck, and a screen porch. In short, the layout is such that a large group can be there and not feel the least bit crowded. I am originally from Biwabik, and I can attest that the house is in the most beautiful location. In the winter, the ski hill is all lit up across the lake and it feels as if you are in a small mountain village. I skied out the backyard to the main road and hit the Mesabi Trail, where the locals ski. Nothing more gorgeous. Giant's Ridge is directly across the lake for groomed nordic and downhill runs. In summer, the Wacootah is a fabulous, close place to eat. The patio overlooking the mine gives you a true feel for the Iron Range. Also, Vi's pizza in town is legendary and the photos will offer you a pictorial history of the town. The owners of this house are incredibly accommodating and the kitchen is completely stocked. Haven't rented in the summer yet, but it is near the golf course and I know you can access the 7 lake chain on your kayak, which is what we folks from Biwabik like to do in the summer. In short, this is the best place to rent in Minnesota: any time of year. We will be back again and again.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your glowing review ... we agree with it all. This is such an incredible location - it's so good that you hope it stays, just a little - undiscovered.

Looking forward to having you all stay in the summer - I know you'll love that season here too.

Great place for a winter getaway

My family rented this home for a late-Christmas family weekend in early-January, and it exceeded all expectations. Huge house, plenty of bedrooms, and very clean. The location was great for skiing at Giants Ridge. We really appreciated all of the HD channels available on a big football weekend. Even though the outside temp was -30 while we were there, it was toasty inside, and a nice man came by to shovel the deck and driveway after it snowed.

Owner's Response: Next time - we'll see what we can do about that outside temperature! Hope you'll come back again. The summers are great for outdoor activities.
