Why Steve Tary chose Minnesota

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.

Great time in beautiful log home near Leech Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family went up to the Walker area and stayed at a beautiful log home which was on a bay of Leech Lake. The home was large, had everything we needed or wanted and was within 3 miles of so of the town of Walker, which made it easy to run to town if we forgot something. We were very happy with the rental and all the amenities that were included. It was large enough for our family of 10 (including two toddlers), had a great large family room that held the whole family. The TV was awesome and was perfect with the one rainy day we had. This is a great place to stay if you are in that area.

Great Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home proved to be a great mid-winter retreat. Combining a family get-away with a bit of ice fishing, both the kids and adults could not have been more pleased with the accommodations....large enough to hold a big group but had a great cozy feel on a very cold weekend. Very clean inside and out and a kitchen with lots of the accessories/utensils that some needy cooks appreciated. Everything was as we hoped....beautiful home on a great site! Thanks for sharing Steve and for the prompt correspondence.

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this cabin for a week in August. The cabin is everything described on this site, and more. All in my party were amazed by the attention to detail put into this cabin by the owner. From the finishes of the cabin itself (all very Northwoods MN), to the extensive selection of cooking utensils, every detail has been accounted for, and I guarantee you will be pleased if you make the decision to book this property.
