I, along with my brothers, purchased this lake home from a friend in 1991 as a family cabin. As time went on, I bought out my brothers and began to rent it out. Many improvements have been made. I am in my 60s and hope to retire in time and live part time in the lake home. I have been in the trucking business since I bought a truck at age 21. I have 3 grown kid and live in the Twin Cites. I ride peddle bikes and my Harley for fun and exercise.

Darby Walbon purchased this cabin in 1991

The cabin sits on a level over-size lot with a sandy beach where my children enjoyed playing when they were young. The cabin is roomy and dressed in 12' knotty pine. With a kitchen, diningroom, livingroom and all season porch on the main level there is plenty of room for large groups to socialize. I have always found it to be a perfect relaxing get-away.

The 4 seasons are so distinctive! It's great to experience the change of seasons at the lake. It's like a new place 4 times a year. The cabin faces west so each night a new and different sunset awaits you.

We've stayed in this cozy cabin on many occasions and I can't wait to go back. There's plenty of room for our kids and grandkids to enjoy the fun with us, but it is also a relaxing and romantic getaway. From the amazing sunsets, great fishing and pontoon boat to snowmobiling through the beautiful Savana Park Trails and stopping at the local establishments along the way, we always leave relaxed and refreshed.

The owners, Darby and Karen are great! They always make sure the cabin is clean and well kept and helpful whenever we have needed something. I would recommend this cabin to anyone, especially if you are looking for a place for a family reunion or family getaway on Big Sandy Lake.

LISTEN TO THE LOONS

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this beautiful, peaceful property numerous times. I love waking up to the sound of the loons. The sunrises are gorgeous.
The sitting room is spacious and enjoyable for fun conversations with those you love.
We have put several puzzles together while enjoying the lakeview on the enclosed porch. If not in the mood for a puzzle, games are abundant.
The lake is wonderful and inviting to all kinds of activities. A must stay for family and friends.

ROOMY, COMFY PLACE WITH FUN AMENITIES

  • 4 of 5
We organize a skiing and Scrabble weekend here annually -- it's a great place. Darby, the owner is communicative and responsible -- nice guy. The house is clean, nicely but comfortably furnished -- the individual sections recline in the couches! and the fireplace is great -- and has enough space for people to hole up and read while others hang out together. The lake is well populated but very pretty, and the cabin is close to Remote Lake Solitude Area for beautiful cross county. (FYI the ping pong/pool table had been moved outside to the unheated little storage house in the winter last time we were here -- otherwise it'd be 5 stars instead of 4 :)

A comfortable lake home! Very quiet and restful. The pontoon is wonderful for touring the lake and fishing. Lots of games for kids, the TV was great.....we got to watch the Twins! My son and grandson very much enjoyed the pool table/ping pong table! We had a great week!

REST AND RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
I have been at this cabin three times now and i throughly look forward to returning.
It is one of my favorite places to visit. Beautiful views, lovely sunsets, a wonderful way to restore your soul.
After a long walk it was lovely to return to the warmth of the fireplace. Plenty of room for meals and games with friends.
