Overview

About the property

Private Island

The cabin is on a private island complete with 18 acres of old growth forest on Juggler Lake, Minnesota…3 hours and 50 minutes from Minneapolis and 1 hour and 30 minutes from Fargo. Ideal for a romantic weekend or a family vacation the kids will never forget. The cabin is an A-frame with 18 Ft. ceilings in the main room, three bedrooms, six beds (one king, two doubles, and 3 singles) and two bathrooms. The cabin includes a jetted tub in the master bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen with two refrigerators and two freezers, a Webber grill, a stone fireplace, and three patios facing North, West, and South. The cabin comes equipped with satellite TV, Wi-Fi. and a diving dock.

The lake is exceptionally clean and is perfect for swimming, boating, and water sports. The lake has excellent fishing especially in the spring and fall. You can catch fish right off the docks, but for bigger fish you will want to take the boat out. You can expect to catch Sun Fish, Perch, Walleye, Northern, and Bass. We have special rates before Memorial Day and after Labor Day for people looking to take advantage of the fishing.

The forest is full of wildlife and great for hiking. The island is 18 totally private acres of old growth forest, undeveloped and wild. There are sugar maples, red maples, birch, oaks, white pines, black ash, balsam fir, spruce, basswood, and ironwood. You can find morels in early May. There are wild strawberries, wild ginger, and lady slippers in summer. There is stunning foliage in fall. There are porcupines, deer, beavers, eagles, cranes, loons, hummingbirds, owls, birds, and squirrels on the island.

The island is forty minutes from Itasca State Park where you can rent bikes and visit the headwaters of the Mississippi!!

We can use our pontoon and we will meet you at the dock with the pontoon to give you tips on operation.... or you can bring your own boats to fish or ski. There will be a metal canoe for your use.

There are parking spots at the public access and a place to launch boats. The island is about a three minute boat ride from the dock at the public access... or about six hundred feet from mainland.

You have the entire island to yourself to hike, play, fish, pick wild strawberries, or just relax in total seclusion!!

Beautiful, Quiet Island Oasis

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful island oasis the first part of August 2017 with out family, 6 adults and two young children. We found it to be well equipped with lots of books; toys for the grandkids and spices/condiments in the kitchen. Upon our arrival, Brian and Mary greeted us and brought us over to the island. Mary was very thorough in going over the basics of the home and showed us where everything we might need was. We had use of the pontoon, kayaks and even a small fishing boat. Fishing at Juggler Lake was great! Caught lots of sunnies, bluegills and bass. Clear and clean too!! The cabin is not too far from Itasca State Park where we enjoyed a day taking family pictures. It is a little ways to get to town to pick up supplies, so when planning a vacation here, plan ahead. They have a nice fire pit where we enjoyed most of our evenings, roasting marshmallows and hotdogs over the fire. It was a nice place to just get away for awhile, very peaceful. No resorts on the lake which made for a quiet week! We would HIGHLY recommend this place for your next vacation in Northern Minnesota. The only thing that they did not have available for us was an anchor for the boat, which we had to run in to town to purchase for ourselves.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our summer vacation! Enough beds, sitting and dining room for our group of seven. Extra fridge and freezer which definitely were put to good use! There is a large gas grill to easily grill for a large group. Super clear lake with great bass fishing! There is also a raft for swimming. Excellent rental, we had a great time!

Wonderful stay and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this island cabin. Our group included my 3 granddaughters (11, 3, and 1), their parents, and me. The kids loved the great swimming beach and fishing off the docks--caught sunnies non-stop! Having the pontoon available was great for evening cruises around the lake and also for fishing. The cabin is well equipped for guests. You can tell it is a well-loved family retreat. Mary and Brian provided all the information we needed to have a great stay. Already talking about coming back next summer!

Secluded cozy cabin on nice lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our week on this private island. We spent our time fishing, boating, tubing, swimming, kayaking, playing board games, sharing meals, hiking through the woods and nightly bon fires. We caught a lot of sunnies and bass, some right off the docks. We brought our own boat but enjoyed using the pontoon provided just as much. The lake was clear and pretty quiet. The cabin has a nice layout and provided us all our essentials. We enjoyed the owners Brian and Mary. They were great to work with and made themselves available for any questions before and throughout our stay. We are grateful for our time on this private oasis.

Very peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Everybody had a great time. Plenty of fish to catch right off the docks. The kids really enjoyed the kayaks and swimming. We had several campfires and enjoyed watching the loons that visited everyday. Thank you for a great week on the island. We hope to return.

Lovely Lake Island Cabin Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family group (from age 1 to 87 years old!) had a lovely week enjoying the island together. We boated, fished, swam, sat around the campfire, shared meals and swapped stories beneath the starry night skies. All agreed that this was the best vacation we'd had in a long time! Would love to return one day. Thank you to our gracious hosts!
