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!

Perfect get-away location!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lovely Thanksgiving weekend in this amazing house and couldn't have been happier. The house was impeccable with so many detailed touches, and the view out the floor-to-ceiling living room windows was absolutely breathtaking. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Our two kids (ages 3 and 7) were giddy with excitement upon seeing the bedroom with all the bunk beds. The adults were tempted to sleep in there too--such a unique space! We had everything we needed to make our turkey dinner and relax afterwards. Giant's Ridge Ski Resort is just a few minutes away (and you can see the slopes out the front window!), so we spent two days there skiing. We also had a great time traipsing around in the snow with the kids and building forts. We have stayed in numerous VRBOs, but this one takes the prize. Todd and Nancy's attention to detail is unsurpassed. (They even apologized that one of the remote controls required tape to hold the battery cover in place. The replacement had not yet arrived! We likely wouldn't have even noticed.) We definitely recommend anyone to stay here! Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa and family, Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful time you had celebrating Thanksgiving at Fairway Ridge! Building the bunkroom was one of our favorite parts of this project as we envisioned the joy it would bring the kids- having "their own private camping room"! The winter views of the ski hill do beckon you over don't they?? So glad that you were able to enjoy a few great days on the slopes during your stay. We extend our sincerest thanks as well for leaving the cabin impeccably clean upon your departure. We are so grateful for such thoughtful and caring guests at Thanksgiving and always! Our doors are open to your family any time and we hope that you’ll be able to return year after year. Best wishes for a wonderful Holiday season, Nancy and Todd

I loved it here. I've stayed at many resorts and this place was truly luxury! Kitchen is fully stocked with NICE dinnerware, cookware and appliances. Even a pizza oven and a toaster oven! Blankets, decorative pillows and magazines, in all the common rooms which really makes this place feel like home. Nice furnature. A huge, up to date, movie collection. Even name brand lotions and room sprays in the bathrooms. Bathroom towels are also provided which is also a plus! The lake view is amazing! I can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Dear Katie- we are so happy that your group had such a wonderful time celebrating Rick's 40th! The weather couldn't have been better for your 4-wheeling adventures at the Gilbert OHV park and for your nightly bonfires. Thanks so much for sharing your pics- it looked like SO much fun! Can't wait for you to return with your sleds this winter! Cheers~ Nancy and Todd

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 15 (six adults and 9 kids) stayed over MEA weekend in this amazing and beautiful home. I don't even know where to start with this review. Everything was perfect!!

Though we were a large group we never once felt crowded. The kids all slept in the awesome bunkroom (it's jaw-dropping and boy did we earn some "cool parent" points!) and still had plenty of room to play. The solid construction and floor plan made it possible for the adults to enjoy a few late nights in the great room playing games and listening to the awesome surround sound while the kids enjoyed their alone time or slept soundly in the bunk room. We couldn't hear them and they couldn't hear us. It was fantastic!

The fire pit was a hug hit. We had a fire going all weekend and used the stocked wood provided (we left $50 for the wood we used - a bargain!). The kitchen was well-stocked with anything and everything you'll ever need. We cooked two large breakfasts and three huge dinners and never ran out of room.

The development is beautiful with hiking/biking trails everywhere and even OHV/snowmobile trails nearby. Tons of stuff to do, all within about a 3.5 hour drive from the southwest suburbs of Minneapolis.

The owners, Nancy and Todd could not have been nicer or easier to work with. So quick to respond and incredibly helpful.

We will, without a doubt, be back. We are already trying to find a date for skiing/snowmobiling and another trip next summer to enjoy the lake.

If you're looking for a great house that accommodates a large group - don't hesitate to book this house.

Owner's Response: Dear Heather- our sincerest thanks for sharing the great time you had at Fairway Ridge. We're so glad that you appreciated the convenience of the main level walkout right to the back patio and fire pit - its one of our favorite things as well! The fire pit is actually a huge vintage cast iron syrup kettle from Savannah, a gift from Todd's 98 year old grandfather. We love that it can serve as such a great centerpiece for creating precious memories. We can't wait for you to return this winter to explore some of the over 2000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and to soak in the gorgeous views of the lighted ski hill from the great room. You might even want to bundle up and roast a few marshmallows over a winter bonfire while watching the skiers cruise down the slopes- we keep the patio cleared and wood stocked all winter! All the best to you and your family ~Nancy and Todd

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!

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 Kate-
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
