About Jim Brown
Mel and I have been sharing our lives for over 15 years. We have a great blended family of 4 children, a son and daughter in-law and 4 incredible grandchildren (so far). We have a very active lives with many passions - one of which is time well spent with our family up at the lake.
Jim Brown purchased this House in 2012
Why Jim Brown chose Biwabik
Mel and I took our family to this home many times and always felt so at home. When the family that originally built it decided to sell - they asked if we'd be interested in purchasing and we leapt at the opportunity. Giants Ridge is unique because it is one of only two areas in the entire country where you can ski, golf and be on a lake at the same location. There are tons of recreational options available, all within the local area. Giants Ridge offers two of the finest public golf courses in the country (The Quarry & The Legend) and the ski resort is one of the best in the mid-west. Road and Mountain biking, hiking, swimming, ATV riding, snowmobile riding, cross country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, fishing, Frisbee golf, sight-seeing, just to name a few.
What makes this House unique
The house was specifically designed for groups and families to enjoy time away together. You will find plenty of room to all be together or have space to have private time. We love hanging out on the dock; sitting by a roaring fire or enjoying the sunset from the deck or porch after a day playing in the outdoors. This home will exceed your expectations.

Great stay as always
We've stayed here for many years now, and it's a great place. Beautiful setting and it's very well appointed. Easy access to great golf courses, too.
Great Golf Weekend
Beautiful lake home. This the 2nd time we have stayed here. Highly recommend this home. Clean and well equipped. The kids loved the lily pad. Thanks Jim
Absolutely beautiful place!
This is our second stay at Anchor Pointe, and we loved it as much as our first stay. The cabin is extremely clean. . No musty smells, even in the lower level. Check-in was simple, and communication was instant with the owner via text. We loved all the natural light, the peaceful screened in porch, the fully stocked kitchen, and all the extra sheets and blankets. Outdoors, we enjoyed biking, picking lots of wild raspberries, and of course the gorgeous lake. The 2 kayaks and the canoe were much-used. The Lily Pad water mat is a blast. Great biking trails in the area, and we had fun climbing the rock wall at Giant's Ridge. We also spent a day in the crystal clear waters of Embarrass Pit (old iron pit) that is right down the road. Our 4 older teenagers loved it all too. You get a LOT for the very reasonable rental price at Anchor Pointe. A fantastic place to spend your vacation!
Our group had a wonderful time and the home is beautiful.
Awesome place . Owner was great to work with and place was in very nice condition. Highly recommended.
Lovely place, very well put together. Very clean and beautiful and peaceful.
I will try to rent this location again.
This home is located near Biwabik, Minnesota (approximately 3 hours north of the Twin Cities) and is across Wynne Lake from the Giants Ridge Golf and Ski Resort. A short drive around the lake takes you to the slopes for downhill, cross country, snowboarding or to two of Minnesota's best public golf courses, the 'Legends' and the 'Quarry.' The renowned 'Wilderness' golf course (rated #1 in Minnesota) at Fortune Bay Resort and Casino is less than 1 hour away.
Just out our front door you’ll have opportunity to road and mountain bike; hike; cross country ski and just go for a great walk. The fantastic, 140 mile Mesabi paved bike trail runs just north of our home offering some of the most beautiful rides through forests and ponds.
Close access to endless snowmobile and ATV trails. Tons of great recreational and fishing lakes within a 10 mile radius including the pristine beauty and gorgeous ridgelines of our own Wynne Lake; rated as a class-5 walleye lake.
