Beautiful home on the crystal clear waters of Deer Lake in Itasca County MN. Rustic wood home interior and exterior will give you the feeling of solitude like no where else, and that is what vacations are for! Home is newly remodeled inside and out and has all the modern amenities you will need to feel comfortable and at ease on your vacation. Home is located on a private road with only one neighbor who rarely is seen. It is a quiet road and a quiet lake that boasts trophy fishing for Walleye, Bass and Muskie. Sit on the deck that overlooks the lake for gorgeous sunsets in the evening, or just listen to the loon calls that are nesting in the bay while sipping your morning cup of coffee. Take a dip in the water off the end of the dock, hard sand bottom and no mud! There is a dock and boat lift for you to use, so bring your boat or your toys. There is a short walkway to the lake with stairs, just a few feet from the waters edge.
The home is designed for the "up north" feel. Wood tongue and groove along with hatchet hewn log siding for interior finishes will make you feel as if you were in a cabin in the woods, because that is what it is!
Just a few hundred yards away is a great trail for walking and mountain biking or hunting in the fall for Ruffed Grouse.
The area boasts many other lakes to drop your boat in such as Lake Winnie and Lake Pokegama, although you will likely rather fish here where it is one of the best fishing lakes in the area. There is also Grand Rapids and Deer River close by for groceries and movies or fine dining.
There are several golf courses nearby including Pokegama Golf Course, Ruttgers on Sugar Lake, Eagle Ridge in Coleraine and Blueberry Hills in Deer River. An hour and a half away is Giants Ridge and The Wilderness at Fortune Bay for the more adventurous and experienced golfer.
There are more opportunities here in the differing seasons. If you are a autumn lover, the color tour is close, and with all the deciduous trees, its a magical time of year to say the least. The area has some of the best bird hunting in the state, some of which is only a few hundred yards away on public land.
If you are a winter lover, take your snowmachine right through the front yard onto the lake and fish through the ice! Ski on public trails or on the lake itself, snoeshoe or just relax in the home on a cold day and dream.
This truely is a year round place to experience, there is no shortage of things for you and your family to do to stay busy, or not busy at all. Sometimes just lying around without the hustle and bustle of everyday life is all you need, this home is your perfect getaway for that too.
This home is available year round, so ice fisherman bring your gear, excellent fishing after freeze up.
Snowmobilers bring your machines! Easy access to trail system from the lake, and you can drive right to lake with our private atv/snowmobile trail!
A few notes:
1-If you are allergic to Yellow Labs, be aware that we have two of them who have been in the cabin. We did our best to clean up hair but there will always be some hiding somewhere.
2-Bring extra outdoor chairs. There are 4 on the deck.
3-Bring your own ice cubes and drinking water. This is well water up here, and if you come from a city, you are drinking from city water which is treated, sometimes you can have a distaste for well water even though this is good enough for us.
4-we have bugs here in the northland. Mosquitos and spiders are common so bug spray is a good idea.
5- there are steps to the lake. There are 30 steps total, so plan on a little exercise if you are coming off the water. See pictures.
We are always on call so if you do book some time here and you need information, advice or anything you do not understand, call us! We want your stay to be memorable for the right reasons.
