About Leon Anderson

Grew up on a small farm near Lake Norden, SD. Joined the Navy at age of 17. After retirement I received my real estate license and have been working real estate ever since. I am a member of the Presbyterian church. Mary and I are blessed with 3 sons, 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Leon Anderson purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Leon Anderson chose South Dakota

Peace, serenity, waterfront and the view besides the fishing and hunting possibilities. It's in the country away from the hurried city life and is in the heart of great fishing opportunities at several local lakes plus waterfowl hunting is a prime reason. Pheasants as well.

What makes this cabin unique

10% discount for repeat clients, active duty Military, retired Military, police and firemen. Enjoy the freedom to relax, watch wildlife, watch boats cruising or fishing. Peaceful and comfortable. Beautiful setting for a vacation or a place to stay while you are hunting or fishing with all the comforts of home. Don't forget the great ICE fishing as well. Kitchen includes just about every item you can think of to supply a cook with items they use all the time. Apartment over garage also available if more space is needed. Call for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented for 3 days with children and grandchildren. The cabin is very well stocked with all the essentials for cooking, games for the kids, and the beds are very comfortable. All this with a great view of the lake. We caught some walleyes on Bitter and Waubay but fishing was limited due to extreme winds. Even though we had to be indoors because of weather, the cabin has a ping pong table, a pool table and plenty of room to move around in. The owners were very prompt on email replies and easy to work with.

12 of us (plus 6 others who stayed in breske bay) pounded the walleyes out of Bitter lake. Way over 100! Not big but nice eaters. We've been staying in this house for years and it's awesome! The fish cleaning station was a great addition. Next year we will also be renting the apartment over the garage instead of the breske bay bunk house. It was also a great addition to the property. The view is awesome and the house is big and wide open.

Great experience once again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting the property for a family reunion and once again we loved it. There was an issue with the A/C that Leon notified me about beforehand; he had a repair person there first thing Monday morning to take care if it. Leon did an excellent job of following up on how we were doing and volunteered compensation for our discomfort from no A/C. We will go back!

More than expected

Nice clean home. We had 8 guys ice fishing and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The lake access was only a Mile or so away. We will be back.
