4 bedroom, 2 bath log home nestled in the tall pines with full kitchen, washer and dryer and central air. Start a fire in the fire pit or head out on the lake for some fishing, tubing or skiing. With the Heartland Trail 2 miles away, the vast Paul Bunyan forest, and golf 10 miles away, there's plenty of activities for the outdoors enthusiasts.
Growing up in the Twin Cities, heading north on the weekends was always a treat. Now we have been able to share this experience with our own kids. Our 3 kids love the cabin as much as us! The kids can act like kids, exploring, swimming, tubing and telling stories around the fire. It's also a great place to spend time with old friends, new friends and family.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2011
We bought this cabin because it just felt like what a cabin is supposed to look and feel like. Log cabin with pine trees all around it with beautiful setting in a peaceful western exposed bay.
Log cabin rustic feel with all the luxuries of home! Privately nestled in the pines, you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee on the deck listening to and watching loons in a quiet bay, yet it's only 2 minutes from town.
We had a great week on Spider Lake. The beautiful log cabin was perfect for our group of 6 ladies. Plenty of room, very clean and comfortable. The cabin tucked into the tall pines brought back memories of my childhood vacations up north. It was wonderful to share that kind of vacation with my girls.
The pontoon worked great for fishing. We caught several bass, a few northerns and some sunfish. We also enjoyed swimming and floating on the lake.
We spent the one rainy day exploring Park Rapids and Walker. Lots of cute small town shops.
Thanks to the Paul and his family for providing us with a beautiful cabin to have a relaxing up north family vacation!
Our family spent a week here in August. The cabin was a great value for the price. We had plenty of sleeping space for 6 people. The property is close enough to many of the local small towns that you have many options for grocery runs, trips to restaurants or day trips. We took a day trip to Itasca State Park and also to the Walker area, neither of which are very far from the property. We used the firepit every day, in the mornings and evenings, and you are surrounded by pines. Spider Lake seems to have at least three different sets of resident loons, one set of which is often right in the bay near the cabin. Loons are calling throughout the day. There is also a resident bald eagle, which was usually perched in a tree across the bay from the cabin each morning. At certain times, all of the loons are calling and the eagle was screeching. Very cool. Other than the birds, there is very little noise and very little boat traffic. The water was crystal clear. We did not find the fishing to be very good during our week at the cabin but we did use our runabout to do some tubing in the two deeper bays of Spider Lake. A canoe is provided by the property owner and this was used to paddle around the bays enjoy the clear views of the bottom of the lake. The interior is well furnished and there was plenty of cookware. Bathrooms are clean and there was always enough hot water for showers. We also used the available washer and dryer quite a bit. There is no wi fi at the cabin and our cell phones (AT&T, Verizon, and TMobile) had service on and off throughout the trip. We have already recommended this cabin to friends and family. The owners were very easy to deal with and promptly responded to any emailed questions that we had.
This place is great. It is very private and all the trees around it are beautiful. The cabin is awesome. Very rustic but yet modern. So far, the best lake rental we have been in. The lake is very unique. We rented a pontoon and the lake was perfect for the pontoon. We were able to access all bays. It was a great lake for the small kids and adults also, a very private bay. The deck off the back of the cabin was our favorite. We spent most of our time there, overlooking the lake. Truly, everything you could want. The is absolutely no negatives. We will be back!!
We stayed at the cabin July 22-28. We had a great time. The kids loved fishing and swimming. The cabin was awesome. It was a little chilly one day but we enjoyed a whole day of the bon fire pit and family time. The owners were so easy to talk to and avaliable at all times. We visit a different area every year and this was for sure our favorite. Thanks for a great vacation Paul!
