This northern Minnesota home on Lake Hennepin appeals to guests with it's blend of easy charm and attention to detail. The pristine quality of the lake and surrounding 5 acres of grassy wooded property is only the beginning. Inside the newly remodeled home, you will find a cozy retreat, complete with a romantic master suite. Perfect for special celebrations (honeymoon, anniversary, reunions) or simple at-the-lake vacations, this home fits the bill for families, couples, or gatherings of friends.
Our beautiful well-equipped kitchen opens to a relaxing dining area. Enjoy a lake view whether you're cooking or eating. Tables just outside on adjoining deck and lower patio are perfect for morning coffee or al fresco dining. Reading materials, radio and music library, comfortable furnishings and artwork make the adjoining living room a warm, inviting area.
On the main floor, too, is the extraordinary master suite complete with in-room jetted tub for two and private bath. This room is graced with floor-to-ceiling ''window walls'' on two sides. Spacious, quiet, and romantic, this area has its own door to the outside and access to the deck, patio, and lake. Bedroom #1 is on the main floor, with plenty of room to set up a portable crib if needed. A half bath is just across the hall.
The lower level has the third cozy bedroom, separate full bath, laundry room, and entertainment room with 42'' LG HDTV, DVD Player and Sony PS 3. Here is the room for a rainy day or a retreat after outdoor activities. With its walk-out feature, lake-side windows and easy to use gas fireplace, this is the place for movies, TV sports, or video games. Two fold out beds also allow this room to sleep 4.
One of northern Minnesota's natural gifts is the panorama of the seasons. Warm weather and water activities abound here. Autumn in the north country is stunningly beautiful, perfect for long hikes and visits to Itasca. In the winter, park your snowmobiles in our 40' square garage or take up cross-country skiing or ice fishing. Imagine Thanksgiving or Christmas gatherings in this rustic setting. Here is an ideal spot to rest and renew, year after year.
Our property is in the Headwaters Region of northern Minnesota. We are equal distance from the college town of Bemidji and Itasca State Park, home to the Headwaters of the Mississippi. Don't miss photos of you and your group walking across the rocks at the start of the Mississippi! The dining, drinks, desserts, and views from Douglas Lodge's restaurant are all superb. We've taken Coborn's tour of Lake Itasca on a beautiful old ferry, complete with a lunch we picked up at the lodge. Well worth doing! Itasca Offers Hiking Trails, Bike Rentals & Trails, Swimming, Fishing, Watercraft Rentals (Canoe, Kayak, Fishing Boats, and Pontoons), Nature Programs, and Guided Tours(by Land or Water).
Forest Edge Winery in LaPorte is close enough for a day trip. They hold a big art fair at the winery every Aug. Talented Mn artists and food!
Other Activities: Dining, Shopping, Seasonal events in Bemidji, ice fishing, snowmobile, snowshoe, hike, use our canoes and kayak.
