Why Steve Tary chose Walker

After vacationing in the Walker / Leech Lake area for many years, falling in love with the area and making many friends we decided we wanted to own a property here so that we could spend more time enjoying all that we had come to love. After much looking we chose a charming red cedar log “cabin”. It was a private refuge with a secluded, calm “up-north” feeling. Over the years we remodeled and finally added on in 2008 creating an amazing retreat. Life then took us in a different direction and we didn’t have the time to spend at the lake that we once had. We decided to maintain our family cabin and make it available to others as a remarkable rental property.

What makes this house unique

The Point Cabin, as we call it, is uniquely situated on a small point of Kabekona Bay affording incredible, panoramic views of this beautiful Northern Minnesota lake. You will enjoy a 180 degree view of the bay. A mere 25 feet from the water the cabin provides an intimacy with the lake that few other properties can. Less than 10 steps and you are on the dock. There is also a beautiful lawn to enjoy lawn games, a fire ring for the marshmallow roast or relaxing and telling your favorite Minnesota ghost stories. Cast a line from the dock, take a swim in the sand bottom swim area or read a book in the hammock. A short walk and you can access the areas trail system. Or rent a boat or Jet Ski and enjoy fishing or water sports on this protected bay. Prefer shopping or dining? The Point Cabin is located about 3 miles from downtown Walker and even closer to one of the area’s finest restaurants, Boulders. Whatever you decide to do on your vacation this is a great place to do it.

Pictures do not do justice...this place is stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lake home and it was absolutely fantastic. We voted as a family that this was by far our best VRBO vacation rental yet! The home was clean, decorated nicely, comfortable, and had every amenity you could think of. The location was perfect too. There were neighbors, but it definitely didn't feel like it. We loved our time here and will most definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us.

Beautiful lake, beautiful Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

Well, this is a bit of nostalgia for us. This beautiful lake home sits on property formally known as Kabekona Springs resort. My family and I vacationed there during the 50s through the 70s. The resort has been demolished and replace with high-end lake homes. This is a beautiful log home just 10 paces from the small private beach on a point on Kabekona Bay. Spectacular of the views of the charming Bay from the great room and screened porch.

The property is immaculately maintained inside and out. Great kitchen, plenty of getaway spaces for all. The master suite is large with views of the lake and has a lovely fireplace.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and hope to return!
