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.

Fairway Ridge is a member of the Voyageurs Retreat at Giant’s Ridge: an executive community, fully paved and beautifully landscaped, offering hiking trails, swimming beaches, day-use canoes and picnic areas. This vacation home is connected to city utilities (water, sewer and natural gas) and offers free high speed internet and satellite TV (Direct TV) with hundreds of channels.

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.

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!

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! While many families headed south to warm, sunny beaches we decided to drive north for our Spring Break. We had 6 adults and 7 kids all under one roof with plenty of room. The children loved the bunk room - while the adults enjoyed the comfort of the living room/kitchen area. This rental property had everything we could've ever imagined. From full laundry to all the kitchen appliances one would need.

The scenery is beautiful! The view of Giants Ridge ski hills across the lake is breath taking. This rental property is very well maintained, decorated, and beautifully furnished with all the comforts of a home. We look forward to our return!!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Jen- We are so thrilled that you were able to spend a great four days celebrating spring break at Fairway Ridge. Thanks so much for sharing the adorable pics of your group around the bonfire and the dinner table. It looked just fabulous! We can't wait to have you back to enjoy the lake and golf courses this summer! Cheers~ Nancy and Todd

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! There were 7 adults, 6 kids and 1 dog and it worked out perfectly. The kids played and watched movies in the bunk room and loved the great selection of movies. The kitchen was well furnished with everything we needed and more. We have stayed in a lot of VRBO houses around the world and this is one of the nicest we have stayed in. Great skiing at Giants Ridge and the Mesabi trail is near by. Hope to go back in the summer!

We're thrilled to hear that this was one of your favorite vacation rentals in the world as we definitely strive to stand out with our design, furnishings and inclusions in an area that offers so much recreation. We adored hearing about how much fun your son’s pup had too and can't wait for all of you to return for a summer visit! Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2015! Nancy and Todd

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house and furnishings were wonderful! We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and Christmas with our three children, their spouses, eight grandchildren (5 months - 9 years old) and one dog. The house and tree were beautifully decorated for Christmas. The bunk room was a big hit with the kids. We enjoyed playing games, watching Christmas movies, making cookies, bonfires, ice fishing, sliding, skiing, snow tubing, swimming at Giant's Ridge Lodge and taking walks to explore the beauty and tranquility this location offers. It was perfect!

We're so happy to be your cozy home away from home after an active day on the slopes or trails and look forward to having you return again soon to experience all that summer in the northeast has to offer. Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
