About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-18)

The summer is quickly passing by, and our renters are enjoying another great season at our beautiful Swan Lake home. Because we are again looking at putting our home up for sale, we will not be accepting reservations for 2018 at this time. If you have specific dates and would like to be placed on a waiting list, we will contact you when we know more about availability. In the meantime, the property is available for the coming fall months, and there is no more beautiful place than northern Minnesota in the autumn. If you are interested in some time 'up north' this fall, send me a reservation request.

Want to escape the hectic pace of life for a few days? Need somewhere to gather with your old college buddies? Or are you looking for the perfect spot to host a family reunion, a special birthday celebration, a bridal shower, a religious retreat, corporate training, or a weekend of scrapbooking with your crafty friends? Then this beautiful log home in the heart of northern Minnesota is the place for you!

This fabulous 5 bedroom 4 bath log ‘cabin’ is nestled on a private wooded 2 acre lot on the shores of the serene west bay of Swan Lake in Pengilly, Minnesota. Scenic beauty and recreational opportunities abound, starting with a sandy beach on quiet Swan Lake, and include things like wonderful bike and hiking trails, great fishing, numerous area golf courses, cross country ski trails, and snowmobile trails. You can arrange boat rentals with local rental companies in Grand Rapids, or bring your own and tie up at the extended dock. Also available for rent on site during your stay is a new paddle boat and a 15 ft canoe...great for exploring the lake! The home can sleep 16+ comfortably, and every room has a great view of the lake. We normally limit the size of the group to no more than 18. There are two fireplaces, a game room, DirecTV, wireless internet, and local phone service. Bedding and towels are provided. The home has a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, 2 Weber charcoal grills, 2 large eating areas, 2 screen porches, and a large deck. There is an attached 3-car garage available for parking, and a Floe dock with a bench and fenders for boat tie-up. The home can be set up with multiple tables for crafting parties, and works equally well for business training sessions or corporate retreats.

Whatever your reasons for getting away, you will find this exceptional home provides a perfect setting any time of year. Each season holds its own allure and special beauty, and these accommodations are sure to meet all of your away-from-home needs!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 came up to snowmobile in the area and were so impressed with the accommodations, I don't think we can say enough about the home. It was such a nice surprise when we got there to have a box of candy waiting for us what a wonderful touch. We could easily get onto the lake and meet up with the trail system. The owners and manager were wonderful to work with, we would defiantly return again. Thank you.

Great Family place

  • 5 of 5

All 18 of us really enjoyed our stay again this year. I is a very nice place ad well cared for. The best part is that there are no surprises. Swan Lake is as good as ever, although the fish were tougher to find.........

We plan to return if we can.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice! This property is beautiful and is well kept. We traveled for a family vacation with 16 people and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The home is well equipped for your stay, from linens/towels to the kitchen, everything is there for you to use. The management was very proactive and had the water checked for hardness as they noticed the water had iron in it during their cleaning prior to our arrival. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great vacation.
