Come up north with your family to the scenic Minnesota woodlands and enjoy 'Iron Ridge', our private log home, beach, and dock on the peaceful shores of Wynne Lake. Easy to find and most convenient of the vacation rental homes, we are on the same side of the lake and just one mile down the road from Giants Ridge Ski Resort and the renown Quarry and Legends Golf Courses. 'Iron Ridge' is a custom home built with massive red pine logs and situated on a spacious wooded lot with private lakeshore and dock. A large secure garage and extensive paved driveway provide plenty of safe, off-road parking for all types of vehicles, trailers or campers.
The lower level is the perfect place for entertaining and family fun. It features a wet bar/kitchen area with sink, refrigerator, large counter/bar with stools and 2 pub tables. From here, walk out to the patio area which overlooks and is only steps from the lake. The patio highlights a large outdoor Hot Tub, patio furniture for dining, sunning or lounging, gas grill, and log porch swing. Step back inside and just down the hallway you'll find a full bathroom complete with a shower, changing room and cedar sauna. Also down this hallway is a utility room with washer, dryer, and iron.
The lower level family room is great for relaxing. Along with a second fireplace, this room has a large TV complete with Sat/Dish TV, XBox 360, and DVD/VCR player. You'll also find books for all ages, board games, XBox games, and an extensive DVD collection. The Queen sofa sleeper and futon provide additional sleep accommodations.
The beautifulness of everything here ( lake, forest etc.) fishing and just hanging out with family. Oh & pictionary :) This place was absolutely positively stellar and I would love to come back. You also had everything in the cabin that anyone would ever need. Thank you. AC
What a very relaxing place. This is what we needed. The house is very pretty and inviting. We are already planning our next trip here. Thank you for opening up your home to our family.
We booked the house for a golf trip to Giants Ridge. Every morning we sat on the deck drinking coffee and watching the steam come off the lake before we headed to the course. I would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for a place to stay while in the Giants Ridge area.
My husband and I decided to honeymoon in Northern Minnesota. We came across this rental and thought it was beautiful. We couldn't have asked for a better owner to work with- he was very understanding and quick to respond to any quesions. We arrived on a Thursday and stayed through Sunday. The house is amazing. The lake is beautiful. The town is quiet. We couldn't have asked for more. We spent a day in Ely, a day out on the canoe and the rest of our time hanging out around the house with our lab. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway!
The vacation home at Giant's Ridge was wonderful. It had all the amenities we needed to relax and enjoy our vacation. The house was clean and well kept. The owners obviously take pride in their home and make you feel extremely welcome there. The location was wonderful four our family. The view was amazing and the lake itself was great for boating, canoeing, kayaking and swimming. The house is everything it is advertised to be and more. The location provided access to many of the area attractions. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking at homes for vacationing in the area.
We had a great time staying at Iron Ridge! Owner was great to work with and location was perfect for both Nordic and alpine skiing at Giants Ridge.
The log home at Giants Ridge exceeded our expectations, It is a roomy, warm, meticulously clean authentic log home. The kitchen is fully equipped for a group, the open living areas with wood burning fireplaces are great for gathering, the hot tub is a bonus, and the home is less than 2 miles from the ski area. We have tried every type of accomadation at Giants Ridge and this is by far the best value and most comfortable.
The cabin was a delightful place to spend Christmas with my dog. Not only is it conveniently located to my relatives, it was a comfortable place to relax peacefully between visits and for cooking a Christmas eve dinner. It was immaculately clean and had all the amentities I could have wished for (and some that I didn't even have time to try, like the outdoor hot tub). It was obvious that the owners have put considerable effort into anticipating a visitor's needs and addressing them. In the winter, the interior staircase to the downstairs entertainment area and bedrooms could be challenging for someone with mobility issues but the lower level is easily accessible through the outside walkway if necessary. If I had planned to ski, the cabin is a short distance from Giant's Ridge alpine skiing as well as being convenient for cross-country/bicycling and snowmobile trails. The "Iron Range" has wonderful outdoor vacation activities and good restaurants -- I would highly recommend trying it.
