Overview

Biwabik House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, Sleeps 12, Family friendly

5 BR/3BA Lake Home (built in 2008) on beautiful Wynne Lake with spectacular views of Giants Ridge Golf and Ski Resort. This is a 2,750 sq. ft. custom cedar home is designed for family fun. Just a 5 minute drive to the slopes or the top-rated Legend’s and Quarry golf courses. The main-floor master bedroom has a King sized bed and wonderful master bathroom with a Jetted Tub and separate shower. 3 large bedrooms on the lower level with Queen Beds and down comforters (one of the bedrooms has an egress through a basement window and up a ladder. Advise that only those able to use this egress stay in this room). The fifth bedroom is huge and is set up for KIDS, with plenty of room to play!

Enjoy the fully-equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, hickory cabinets, pantry and breakfast bar. Relax in the Great Room by the fire taking in the lake views, the beautiful sunsets or enjoying the 52' HDTV & home theater. Unwind in the family room watching movies or sitting by the fire. Enjoy the large cedar deck and screen porch the large dock for all your water toys. The attached, heated, 2-car garage is great in the winter and the Wireless broadband throughout the property will keep you connected.

There is a wonderful 3-season cedar screen porch and an expansive cedar deck overlooking the shoreline. The main level also has a half bath, laundry room with front-loading washer and dryer, and a mud room off the garage.

Voyageurs Retreat: This beautiful home sits in an amazing new development which you will just love. All the homes are built to conform to strict architectural guidelines to complement the natural surroundings and to add to the overall beauty of this area. All roads are paved. The home has city utilities (water and sewer), natural gas, high speed internet, digital cable tv, phone. The entire development is beautifully landscaped with dramatic lighting, hiking trails, common swimming beaches with day-use canoes and picnic areas.

Our home sits on a beautiful and peaceful 2.1 acre lot with 335 feet of shoreline and lots of white pines, maples and birch. There is also a wonderful outdoor gathering area surrounding a large fire-ring for great times relaxing around a warm, crackling fire.

Why crowd yourselves into a condo or hotel room, when you can stay in a 5 bedroom private home for the same price (or even less)? This home was built to be a place where you could enjoy spending quality time together, with lots of recreational opportunities.

Our family stayed in the home many times and created our own memories. When the original owners were looking for a new family to own the home - we leapt at the chance.

We know you and your family will enjoy it too!

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 Minnesota

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My whole family stayed here over Christmas and

we had a blast. The house was set up well to

handle all 12 of us. We particularly liked the

well-appointed kitchen, the fire pit, and lake for ice skating. The nightime view of Giants Ridge from the lake was really cool. It was nice that the Ridge was a quick drive.



We can't wait to go back for a trip in the summer

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful setting, great accomodations, and activities for all seasons. We (5 couples) really enjoyed the beautiful lake and the close proximity of fantastic golf! The house was perfect for us and very well equipped. It was also great to have the central air with different zones to accomodate all of our preferences. The screened 3 season room was also nice for relaxing without bugs! The fire pit area was a routine evening gathering place for our group. I look forward to staying here again!

Hate to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed in a vacation rental that was so well stocked. The kitchen has absolutely anything you might need. This is a very generous and thoughtful owner. The house is beautiful. Everything is updated and fresh and sparkly clean. The view is exactly what I had hoped for. We had a lovely, restful family gathering.

What a Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house called Anchor Pointe was a gem of a find for our family reunion. We had ages 5-70 and everyone had a great time. Two kayaks, a gorgeous red canoe, well-built dock and ladder for easy water access, an incredibly-equipped kitchen, luxurious beds and pillows, towels galore, a fire pit for the required "S'Mores", easy access to walking and running trails--this place has it all. Everything was very clean and well-kept. This is a lovely getaway for rest and rejuvenation and certainly earns a 5-Star recommendation.

One little shortcoming which can easily be remedied, is the lack of BBQ tools to use with the large outdoor grill.

Kudos to the owners for sharing their "little bit of heaven" with appreciative strangers.

Owner's Response: So glad you all enjoyed your stay! The dock was built our eldest and we're especially proud of how it turned out. As for the grill and tools - you bet! It's time to upgrade both - soon to come. jb

Great northern minnesota experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

first and foremost i would like to say Jim is great to work with. When me and my family looked at pictures of the cabin from the website we knew this place was gonna be beautiful from the inside and out. when we actually got out there, the house just blew everyone away!. You literary only have to bring your clothes, hygiene stuff, and the food that you're going to cook. all the basic needs are available for you. All the kids got out on the kayak and canoe that was provided which was great for me. the lake was so serine and peaceful and we had spent most of our time on the waters. great experience if you're trying to get the kids away from the technology stuff (tablets, phone, and laptops etc...) We will definitely be planning another trip next summer. Hopefully this can be a yearly tradition for us. Thank you for everything Jim. -Ryan

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.

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.
