Imagine you and your family or friends living in "Log Home Luxury" for a weeklong vacation getaway! See yourself spending the day on beautiful Mille Lacs Lake fishing or boating and then settling in to this cozy 3 bedroom 2 and 1/2 bath log home for a relaxing evening of games and storytelling.

This Log Home Gem was built new in 2007 as a Model Home and is now being opened up for public rental. The attention to detail is astounding. This beautiful home features high pitched vaulted ceilings with log purlins, dormers and gables that architects dream about. Its massive windows capture the beauty of the surrounding views including marshlands, woods, and the glistening lake. These windows enable you to stand in awe of the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets that accompany the picturesque Minnesota landscape. Not to mention that huge full moon as it peaks above the lake on the distant horizon.

This home features all the finishes you would expect from "Log Home Luxury" including Natural Slate flooring, Granite countertops, Custom Hickory Cabinets, plush carpet, whirlpool tub for two in the master suite, slate shower, front load washer and dryer and plenty of off street parking.

About Steve Looysen

I am an outdoors person who enjoys the beauty of nature and all the joy that goes with it. Hiking, biking, fishing, swimming and sightseeing are some of the things I enjoy about the area. Log Home living enables me to surround myself with nature and still enjoy the comforts of modern American life. PS I forgot to mention RELAXING. A great place to get away with friends and family.

Steve Looysen purchased this Cabin in 2007

Why Steve Looysen chose Garrison

My brother and I built this Log Home in this location because of the beautiful view of Mille Lacs Lake to the East and the picturesque marshlands to the west. We originally built this home as a Model for our Log Home company and have since decided to open it to the public for their weekly rental enjoyment.

What makes this Cabin unique

The unique benefits of this property are the breathtaking views and the centralized location halfway between Historic Duluth and Minneapolis St. Paul for vacation planning. Just about any outdoor activity you enjoy is within minutes of this beautiful home.

                                                                    We stayed here as a group of 9 and a newborn from Saturday 7/2/2016 to Tuesday 7/5/2016. The cabin is beautiful with amazing views of Mille Lacs Lake, which is just across the road. We ended up staying back for the fireworks and the view was also up close and amazing. Town is 1 mile away and has a couple great restaurants; I definitely recommend Y Club and Lake Mille Lacs Pizza. The master bedroom is on the first floor and comes with a jacuzzi tub, which is great for those long days being outside. The owner was super nice and easy to work with, and I definitely recommend this cabin for those who are looking for a lot of space.

                                                                    Beautiful cabin with all the amenities of home

The cabin is beyond beautiful and had all the conveniences of home. The owner was great to work with and really went out of his way to provide all the extras we needed for optimal enjoyment and comfort. We hope to stay here again next summer!
