About Linda

After many hectic years in the Twin Cities, moved 'Up North' to enjoy a more laidback lifestyle. Nothing seems quite as urgent when you are on the water.

Linda purchased this house in 1995

Why Linda chose Richmond

We built two homes on this peninsula in the mid-1990s. My husband and I live in one of the homes. Friends and family stay in the cabin when they visit (it's actually a year-round home - we just call it 'the cabin'). We hadn't made use of the cabin as much as we once did, so in 2007 we decided to open up our cabin as a vacation home rental.

What makes this house unique

I love summer nights that are just the right temperature to leave the windows open, and then listen to the loons call to each other in the morning. There is no better way to wake up.

Awesome chain of lakes

  • 3 of 5

The lake is gorgeous with so many miles of frontage to boat on. All recreational lake and we brought a boat and had a blast tubing and wake boarding. The water was like glass and I think it's generally really calm. The water frontage was nice and clear for the most part. Excellent swimming and water sitting with babies and children.

We had 6 adults and 2 babies. The layout worked but there is only one true bedroom and the sunroom bedroom on the main floor. The other true bedroom is in the lower level with a door to the outside along with the large room of beds (which was super nice) and a full bath. The owners house is much closer than in that ariel photo. The Seller owns a shop which is located near the cabin. There certainly is a lack of privacy although the owners house doesn't have any windows that face the cabin, it was more the coming and going of the owner and visitors they had at their house which sent them right past the patio of the cabin. The exposed patio is off the driveway by the sunporch and the fire pit is on the other side of the driveway. The owners didn't bother us at all but they did walk by fairly often and it didn't feel right given the nightly rate of this house compared to others with true privacy.

Overall, the cabin was awesome, well stocked, the water and pier were great and we had everything we needed. The Seller was super quick to respond to questions and was very helpful. If we didn't have babies we certainly would have been out on the water a whole lot more as this chain of lakes is incredible!!!

Gorgeous lake home with everything you could possibly want.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year spending a week at this cabin, that’s how much we love it. The lake is beautiful and full of fish to catch. It’s fun to hang out on the beach area or go for a paddle boat ride. The cabin itself has plenty of space and lots of beds and a nice kitchen. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t recommend this place more.
