About the property

4 Br/3 Ba, Sleeps 16, Giants Ridge, Golf/Ski/Swim, Ski And Lake Views

Fairway Ridge is Biwabik’s Ultimate Luxury Vacation Home! Completed in August 2013, this brand new four bedroom, three bath lake front home is finely crafted and designed, offering the finest of accommodations. Located directly across from Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort, Fairway Ridge offers picturesque views of the lighted slopes in the winter and the pristine waters of Wynne Lake in the summer.

At 3600+sq ft, the spacious, open-concept floor plan is great for families or large groups yet cozy enough for a romantic couple’s weekend. The latest amenities abound including main level heated floors, a gourmet kitchen with knotty alder cabinetry, one-of-a kind Brazilian granite countertops, a gas range and all new cookware. In the dining room a built-in bar area houses the stemware and dual zoned wine fridge while the custom built counter height dining table seats 8. Four additional high-top chairs at the center island ensure ample seating for the whole family.

Comfortable seating surrounds the 42” lighted gas fireplace with floor to ceiling stone surround, hand hewn cedar mantle and 55” flat panel LCD smart TV. Built-in surround sound, Free WiFi, Direct TV with movie and music channels, a Blue Ray player and a wide array of DVDs invite you to settle in for movie night after an active day of hiking, swimming, biking, golfing or skiing. The great room’s stunning 20 foot wall of windows and unique real-log accents will make you feel a part of nature no matter the weather.

The main floor Master Bedroom includes its own private walkout, king sized bed, walk-in closet and private Master Bath complete with a six foot soaking tub, dual his/her sinks and a massive walk-in shower with multiple shower heads.

The convenient custom built coat lockers and a large laundry room with front loading washer and dryer are located just off the heated garage.

Upstairs the cozy reading loft overlooking the family room offers views of the lake and ski hill and is the perfect place to relax with a good book or to gather with your crew for board games or cards. Two upper bedrooms each offer a queen bed with luxury bedding, spectacular lake views and a high definition flat panel TV with Direct TV. The fourth bedroom (bunkroom) was built with the kids in mind but can be perfect for multiple adults with 3 full sized beds and 4 twins, all built extra-long to accommodate even the taller guests. This bunkroom is a great movie or gaming hideaway with its 50” flat panel TV and PlayStation 3.

One of Fairway Ridge's finest features is the wonderful slab on grade design allowing for a direct walkout to the huge concrete patio with its antique sugar kettle fire pit, plenty of seating, a BBQ grill and option for stocked firewood. 175’ of Wynne Lake shoreline and a floating dock are conveniently located directly across from the public boat launch. Bring your own toys or rent from us. Pontoons, jets skis, ATVs and snowmobiles are all available and can be waiting for you upon arrival. Additional options include housekeeping, catering and concierge services for grocery, propane and firewood delivery or for scheduling spa services, tee times or dinner reservations.

Fairway Ridge is a member of the Voyageurs Retreat at Giant’s Ridge: an executive community, fully paved and beautifully landscaped, offering hiking trails, swimming beaches, day-use canoes and picnic areas. This vacation home is connected to city utilities (water, sewer and natural gas) and offers free high speed internet and satellite TV (Direct TV) with hundreds of channels.

About Nancy Fisher

Growing up on the Iron Range gave me such a special appreciation of northeastern MN. To me 'the cabin' means a forest setting, rocks, pines, crisp clean waters. Todd had been to the area several times growing up and had also come to love the unique look and small town feel of this fabulous corner of the state. We currently live in the twin cities area but return to our favorite place every chance we have.

Nancy Fisher purchased this house in 2013

Why Nancy Fisher chose Minnesota

Very few places in the country can offer what the Iron Range and Giant's Ridge can boast- year round FUN! Todd and I love to golf and what better than to have three of the top courses in the state (The Quarry and The Legend at Giant's Ridge and The Wilderness at Fortune Bay), just minutes away. The beauty of spring and fall hikes, biking The Mesabi Trail, cruising the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area on our ATVs, skiing, snowboarding or cross country skiing Giant's Ridge or making use of the thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails... the options are endless. With fabulous fishing, amazing scenery and countless places to see and explore, we knew Voyageurs Retreat at Giant's Ridge was the perfect place for us to build our vacation home. We love every moment here spent with family and friends and we are thrilled to share this area with you and your loved ones.

What makes this house unique

Fairway Ridge was custom designed by Todd to be a family friendly vacation home that would be loved by all. One of our favorite features is the slab-on-grade design which allows for a direct walkout from the main level to the back patio. This walkout from the dining room and the home's open-concept floor plan make for a huge entertainment area that is exceptional for large gatherings and so convenient for even a party of 2. The bunk room is a kids paradise, the reading loft a perfect relaxation spot and the views simply stunning! This luxury lake home awaits you in one of the most beautiful places on earth- northeastern MN.

Absolutely Beautiful Luxury Home

  • 5 of 5

The quality, finishes and furnishings in this home are not typical of the VRBO rental. We felt like we were staying in someone's million-dollar home rather than a rental in that the furniture was very high-end (lots of Restoration Hardware), the architecture and finishes were stunning, and we had everything we needed. Little touches like a welcome basket, free wifi, full cable channel lineup (including most premium movie channels), hundreds of DVD movies, extra blankets, and a fully stocked kitchen really set this home apart. We frequent Giants Ridge and have stayed in the lodge, the villas, and other private homes and this completely blows the others away. The home features heated concrete floors, a large fireplace, huge master suite with a large soaking tub and separate 3-head rain shower, large eating areas including the counter-bar and a 12' restored-wood dining table, professional-grade appliances, wall-mounted flat screen TV's in every room, and a kids room with what seemed like 10 built-in bunk beds and a play station and DVD player. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the items you need to cook or bake anything and there is also a well-stocked pantry with food items and spices for the items that you inevitably forget. With the open main floor layout there is enough room and comfortable furniture for large groups of 15 or more to gather together on the main level and the home also has many places to hide out, get some privacy and read a book (like the upper level loft). We highly recommend this home and have already booked our March 2015 stay.

Beautiful lake home

  • 4 of 5

This is my third stay at Fairway Ridge, twice with friends, this time with wife and kids. The house is really nice. It has the kitchen, furniture, and beds that one might expect in a luxury home. There is a nice patio, grill, and fire pit. The fishing was not so good, pretty deep lake, but beautiful. There are some better fishing lakes nearby. There are great golf courses, hiking and ATV trails, we even used the swimming pool at the Villas. Overall, a lot of recreational opportunities, an a really nice luxurious lake home to stay in.

The home was amazing and the surroundings perfect.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed fishing, kayaking, riding in the paddle boat, sitting by the fire, hiking on nearby trails... it was fantastic! We enjoyed the close proximity of Biwabik for spur of the moment groceries and bait. We even took a day trip to Duluth!

Second time around is even better.

  • 5 of 5

Second year here and I am so grateful we can spend my birthday/3 year anniversary here. Walking in I knew where everything was and what to expect. We haven't even been here for a full hour and I've already taken a bath in the master bath and just getting ready for bed and I'm not sure I even want to because I'm excited for morning adventures and enjoying the view of the lake. Highly recommend this Fairway Ridge.

Thank you Todd and Nancy for everything you guys have done for us.

An excellent place to stay for a ski trip

  • 5 of 5

I had 14 friends and myself stay here for a ski trip to Giants Ridge and it was an absolutely beautiful cabin to stay in. The drive to the slopes was only about 10 minutes. We could see the ski slopes from the window in the cabin which was quiet the view. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and no one ever felt like it was to cramped inside the cabin. All of us will highly recommend this cabin as a great place for a winter weekend getaway.
