Lived on this lake every summer for 63 years. Family on this lake for 90 years. Love it summer or winter! Family owns house next door to the north.
What makes this cottage unique
Small lake. Pristine spring fed water. Low boating traffic on the lake nearly all of the time as compared to White Fish Chain, Gull Lake, Ten Mile Lake, Leech Lake, etc. More suitable for families in some ways. More suitable for children venturing out on their own. Better wake boarding and water skiing due to low wave height and quiet boating condiitions. Many bays on the lake. Always a calm spot for trick skiing and trick wakeboarding. Generally good fishing.
House is all new in 2013. Added a bedroom and expanded the other two bedrooms. Added a second bath. Added a full laundry. Added a full living area. Retained the sunroom sitting area over looking the lake and beach immediately in front of the house. Thoughtfully designed and highly functional house with top quality commerical grade gourmet kitchen. Now also with full dining room and more glass for view out to lake. Bedrooms now with full closet and dressers. Master bedroom has ensuite bathroom. Sleeping loft has areas for children or adult guests. Spent four years designing and preparing to build this. Corrected all of the flaws in the previous home and then some.
