Giants Ridge House Rental Photos and Description

4 Br/3 Ba, Sleeps 16, Giants Ridge, Golf/Ski/Swim, Ski And Lake Views

Fairway Ridge is Biwabik’s Ultimate Luxury Vacation Home! Completed in August 2013, this brand new four bedroom, three bath lake front home is finely crafted and designed, offering the finest of accommodations. Located directly across from Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort, Fairway Ridge offers picturesque views of the lighted slopes in the winter and the pristine waters of Wynne Lake in the summer.

At 3600+sq ft, the spacious, open-concept floor plan is great for families or large groups yet cozy enough for a romantic couple’s weekend. The latest amenities abound including main level heated floors, a gourmet kitchen with knotty alder cabinetry, one-of-a kind Brazilian granite countertops, a gas range and all new cookware. In the dining room a built-in bar area houses the stemware and dual zoned wine fridge while the custom built counter height dining table seats 8. Four additional high-top chairs at the center island ensure ample seating for the whole family.

Comfortable seating surrounds the 42” lighted gas fireplace with floor to ceiling stone surround, hand hewn cedar mantle and 55” flat panel LCD smart TV. Built-in surround sound, Free WiFi, Direct TV with movie and music channels, a Blue Ray player and a wide array of DVDs invite you to settle in for movie night after an active day of hiking, swimming, biking, golfing or skiing. The great room’s stunning 20 foot wall of windows and unique real-log accents will make you feel a part of nature no matter the weather.

The main floor Master Bedroom includes its own private walkout, king sized bed, walk-in closet and private Master Bath complete with a six foot soaking tub, dual his/her sinks and a massive walk-in shower with multiple shower heads.

The convenient custom built coat lockers and a large laundry room with front loading washer and dryer are located just off the heated garage.

Upstairs the cozy reading loft overlooking the family room offers views of the lake and ski hill and is the perfect place to relax with a good book or to gather with your crew for board games or cards. Two upper bedrooms each offer a queen bed with luxury bedding, spectacular lake views and a high definition flat panel TV with Direct TV. The fourth bedroom (bunkroom) was built with the kids in mind but can be perfect for multiple adults with 3 full sized beds and 4 twins, all built extra-long to accommodate even the taller guests. This bunkroom is a great movie or gaming hideaway with its 50” flat panel TV and PlayStation 3.

One of Fairway Ridge's finest features is the wonderful slab on grade design allowing for a direct walkout to the huge concrete patio with its antique sugar kettle fire pit, plenty of seating, a BBQ grill and option for stocked firewood. 175’ of Wynne Lake shoreline and a floating dock are conveniently located directly across from the public boat launch. Bring your own toys or rent from us. Pontoons, jets skis, ATVs and snowmobiles are all available and can be waiting for you upon arrival. Additional options include housekeeping, catering and concierge services for grocery, propane and firewood delivery or for scheduling spa services, tee times or dinner reservations.

About Nancy Fisher

Growing up on the Iron Range gave me such a special appreciation of northeastern MN. To me 'the cabin' means a forest setting, rocks, pines, crisp clean waters. Todd had been to the area several times growing up and had also come to love the unique look and small town feel of this fabulous corner of the state. We currently live in the twin cities area but return to our favorite place every chance we have.

Nancy Fisher purchased this house in 2013

Why Nancy Fisher chose Giants Ridge

Very few places in the country can offer what the Iron Range and Giant's Ridge can boast- year round FUN! Todd and I love to golf and what better than to have three of the top courses in the state (The Quarry and The Legend at Giant's Ridge and The Wilderness at Fortune Bay), just minutes away. The beauty of spring and fall hikes, biking The Mesabi Trail, cruising the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area on our ATVs, skiing, snowboarding or cross country skiing Giant's Ridge or making use of the thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails... the options are endless. With fabulous fishing, amazing scenery and countless places to see and explore, we knew Voyageurs Retreat at Giant's Ridge was the perfect place for us to build our vacation home. We love every moment here spent with family and friends and we are thrilled to share this area with you and your loved ones.

What makes this house unique

Fairway Ridge was custom designed by Todd to be a family friendly vacation home that would be loved by all. One of our favorite features is the slab-on-grade design which allows for a direct walkout from the main level to the back patio. This walkout from the dining room and the home's open-concept floor plan make for a huge entertainment area that is exceptional for large gatherings and so convenient for even a party of 2. The bunk room is a kids paradise, the reading loft a perfect relaxation spot and the views simply stunning! This luxury lake home awaits you in one of the most beautiful places on earth- northeastern MN.

Luxury in the Wilderness

  • 5 of 5
I hate to write a review as I can only imagine this place will book up fast; I'd like to keep it to myself! My husband, 2 year-old and I spent a very peaceful weekend in this gorgeous new Lake Home. If offered the tranquility of a deep woods lodge with the amenities of a 5-star resort. The cabin sits across from the ski hill (though no skiers in August!) - I can assume will provide fantastic views when we return in the winter! We swam right off our own private dock in a very quiet lake (very little boat traffic). The bike/nature trails were a great way to get some additional fresh air, when we tired of relaxing on the expansive patio. It's about 5-10 mn to the nearest town (Biwabik) which has plenty of small stores and shops; and there are restaurants and bars within the same distance. This area and home are untapped gems in Northern MN - Thank you for your hospitality! Sherri and Ben

Owner's Response: Thank you Sherri, Ben and little one for choosing our home for your vacation and for your great feedback! We're so glad that you were able to enjoy all that the area has to offer. We just love the convenience of a full grocery store, gas station, bait shop, post office etc. just minutes away. Though our shoreline is fairly deep (roughly 8-10 feet at the end of the dock) we're thrilled that you were still able to enjoy swimming with your little one in her darling pink life jacket and sunglasses (thank you for sending us the sweet picture!). We're excited to share Fairway Ridge with many newcomers throughout the coming year but truly hope that you and your family will find the perfect time in your schedules to visit us again. We'd love for you to see the winter views of the ski hill and experience all the fun that winter provides in the great northeast!

Beautiful lakehome

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful, well kept lakehome. The owners were very meticulous, and had everything set up nicely to use. The lake is small, but very pretty. There are a ton of available outdoor activities in the area. The kitchen is awesome, right down to higher end cutlery and pans. We really enjoyed the back patio area with a nice firepit and BBQ. Overall, we just can't find anything to complain about - top notch rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts Steve! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated all that the cabin and area have to offer. We too love the peacefulness of the lake and the convenient access to the many miles of bike trails, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, 4 wheeling and of course - the amazing Quarry and Legend golf courses at Giant's Ridge. Our sincere appreciation for the care you showed the cabin during your stay. We welcome you back any time!

Peaceful, Relaxing, & Luxurious

I have nothing but great things to say about this rental! Nancy is so easy to work with, very professional, and responds to all questions immediately.

The house was beautiful and luxurious, and accommodated our family reunion perfectly. All 16 family members, varying in ages from 6 years to 70 years, had a great time and found ways to enjoy the vacation. I personally loved being able to enjoy the Mesabi Bike trail, loved taking our rented canoe out on the lake, and enjoyed curling up in a cozy chair by the fire to read a book. The large, modern kitchen has everything you need to prepare large dinners. There seriously wasn't ever a time where I wished they had something...they have thought of everything! The open layout is perfect for encouraging family time, but there's space enough to retreat to quiet areas as well if you need a break. The master bathroom is AMAZING! It's my dream to have one just like it someday! All the kids loved the bunk room (looks like a Dream Room straight from Pinterest!) and it made for great bonding between cousins who rarely get to spend time together. Tears were shed on the last day because no one wanted to leave!

The lake is quiet and offers lots of privacy. While families were vacationing on either side of the house, we hardly saw or heard them while they were there. If you're looking for a relaxing, peaceful, and luxurious vacation, I highly recommend Fairway Ridge!

Owner's Response: Dear Katie-
Thank you for your kind words! Our goal was to create a beautiful space where extended families and friends could come together to create lasting memories and to connect in this increasingly busy world. It brings such joy to our hearts to know that you found it just so! We're glad you were able to take advantage of the great Mesabi Bike Trail (even more expansion coming!), peaceful lake and amenities of the cabin, and that you had everything you needed during your stay. You were a joy to work with as well and our doors are open to you always! ~ Nancy and Todd

Perfect for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our group of 14. With 7 adults and 7 children it is difficult to find a place that accommodates us all comfortably. This home was so spacious and comfortably furnished that we never felt crowded--even when we were all inside at the same time! The bunk room was perfect for the kids! Each of them had a comfortable bed, all in the same room, and they could all wind down together in the evenings with a movie or some video games. The property outside was even more beautiful than the pictures portray. We loved the patio with the fire pit, and enjoyed a bon fire every night we were there.

The owners, Nancy and Todd, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and more! They were available to us the entire week and always responded immediately to us when we had questions.

The lake was beautiful and having the pontoon and fishing boat was a big plus! There is a swimming beach not too far down on the lake that we took the kids to when they wanted to go swimming. Some of us used the trails for running and biking and they were absolutely gorgeous!!! We were there strictly to have family time together, so we didn't take advantage of the golf courses or restaurants that are in the area. Nancy recommended a caterer, "From the Farm Catering", and the food from there was outstanding! Yvette, cooked and brought our dinners to us 5 of the 7 nights we were there and everything was delicious!!! She also brought us breakfast items and some lunch and snack items with our dinners to use the next day. I think we will use her 7 out of 7 nights next time, if she's available!!!

Overall, our stay was outstanding! Our family is scattered all over the country, and the opportunity to have them all together in one place for a week is so special! This vacation rental exceeded our expectations and we would recommend it to anyone!

Owner's Response: Dear Lois, Brenda and family- We can’t thank you enough for choosing our cabin for your precious family reunion and for your kindness and compliments. Your family was just delightful to chat with before and during your stay and we couldn't be happier that your trip was everything you hoped it would be and more. We're so glad you were able to take advantage of the neighborhood's sandy beach for the younger kids as our lakeshore is deep off the dock and also that you thoroughly enjoyed "From the Farm Catering". We are truly looking forward to your return visit and hope you'll even find time for that quick winter weekend getaway! The ski hill, cross country courses and thousands of miles of snowmobile trails will be waiting for you!

Absolutely Beautiful Luxury Home

  • 5 of 5
The quality, finishes and furnishings in this home are not typical of the VRBO rental. We felt like we were staying in someone's million-dollar home rather than a rental in that the furniture was very high-end (lots of Restoration Hardware), the architecture and finishes were stunning, and we had everything we needed. Little touches like a welcome basket, free wifi, full cable channel lineup (including most premium movie channels), hundreds of DVD movies, extra blankets, and a fully stocked kitchen really set this home apart. We frequent Giants Ridge and have stayed in the lodge, the villas, and other private homes and this completely blows the others away. The home features heated concrete floors, a large fireplace, huge master suite with a large soaking tub and separate 3-head rain shower, large eating areas including the counter-bar and a 12' restored-wood dining table, professional-grade appliances, wall-mounted flat screen TV's in every room, and a kids room with what seemed like 10 built-in bunk beds and a play station and DVD player. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the items you need to cook or bake anything and there is also a well-stocked pantry with food items and spices for the items that you inevitably forget. With the open main floor layout there is enough room and comfortable furniture for large groups of 15 or more to gather together on the main level and the home also has many places to hide out, get some privacy and read a book (like the upper level loft). We highly recommend this home and have already booked our March 2015 stay.

Owner's Response: Our sincerest thanks for sharing your wonderful review Jake! As we designed, built and furnished Fairway Ridge our goal was to offer a completely worry free home that would feel luxurious and would satisfy even the most discerning travelers. We are thrilled that you found it just so and can't wait to have your group return next March! All the best to you and your family!
