Arguably the most beautiful view of Lake Ada from our family room and deck. Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath split entry home has newer appliance, a 40" TV and DVD, extra bunk beds in lower family room & new deck. Enjoy the sounds of the water crashing on the shores or the loons greeting you in the morning. This private home is the ideal family vacation home that you will want to come back to year after year.

About Steve Johnson
Steve and Nancy are happy you found us and our lake home. We are a large family with nine children and 4 grandchildren. We all have fond memories of our lake home and we hope that you will too. Our families history of Lake Ada goes back to 1960 when Nancy's father purchased land on Lake Ada and built the families first lake home. To date, eight other family members have purchased properties on Lake Ada so we are well rooted in the Lake Ada community.
Steve Johnson purchased this House in 1995
Why Steve Johnson chose Pine River
Our Lake home is idea for married couples or families that want to experience lake living at it's best. Only three hours from the Twin Cities, it's the perfect family vacation drive. Lake Ada is located between the Whitefish Chain and Leech Lake in Walker. Lake Ada offers excellent boating, skiing, tubing and fishing. Since Lake Ada isn't one of the large "resort" lakes, you have more privacy and more opportunities to enjoy the waters. Lake Ada is also an excellent fishing lake. Again, our niche is married couples and families. We are not interested renting to groups that are focused on parties so please don't request if that is what your interests are.
What makes this House unique
Our Lake home is a year-round home with two bedrooms on the main level and one in the lower level. We have recently remodeled the home raising the roof line adding large vaulted ceilings and more windows. Rather than vacationing at a resort, you have the privacy of your own home with all appliances including washer and dryer. We have a gas grill on the deck along with a 40" TV in lower family room. We do not have cable TV but we do have a DVD player for late night movies.

Great up north family vacation home!
We were looking to have a quiet, up north, fishing vacation with family and friends and this home on Lake Ada really checked all the boxes. The home had plenty of room for all of 6 us, never felt like we were in each others way. Nice for the boys to have the basement with their own bathroom. It was also good not to have a TV on the main level, nice to unplug. The lake was awesome, clear, sandy bottom and shallow by the dock area. The guys went fishing and the gals job most days was to float in the water and have cocktails. We rented paddle boards from a nearby marina and the boys played golf close by as well. So, if you are looking for a quiet lake, get reconnected with family, unplug from the day-to-day, and a nicely updated vacation home - this is it!
This was our second year here. The new gas grill was a very nice upgrade. The granddaughters had fun swimming. We spent time fishing and playing games both inside and out. The one problem we had was immediately addressed by the owner and easily resolved. Thanks for that. This place is perfect for our family. We hope to be able to come back next year.
My family and I throughly enjoyed our week long vacation. The house is well taken care and large enough to not feel like you're on top of each other. The view of the lake is great and having stayed in other spots on the east shore and South Bay of Lake Ada we think the view from this lake home provides you the best view of the "whole" lake. If we decide to take future vacations on Lake Ada again we will definitely be staying here.
Overall great vacation home.
The house was beautiful and worked well for our family of 5. It could have accommodated a much larger group but it was nice that we could spread out. Overall we had a great time and would definitely stay again.
We loved our stay here! The cabin had everything we needed and was very comfortable for 6 adults and 3 children.
This place is amazing! It was perfect for our family of 8 (5 adults & 3 kids 3 and under). The place is so wonderfully laid out. Our daughter and son-in-law with their 3 children basically took the downstairs and myself, my husband and our adult son took the upstairs. The lake is so clear and sandy! Our 3 yr old granddaughter could touch at the end of the dock. They had a blast feeding the very friendly ducks, playing in the sand, watching the loons (which we named Poke & Peck) and swimming! This is in a very quiet area which we really enjoyed! The upstairs is wonderfully updated and spacious. The fishing was good, we caught enough sunnies to feed our family of 8 for 2 meals. Although our son who is living in Montana did manage to catch a nice pike off the end of the dock on a fly rod, but we didn't keep it! My husband is a BIG walleye fisherman, so he spent lots of time trying to find the walleye's in the lake, but couldn't. We never felt like the lake was over crowded with boaters either. The only thing that maybe was a bit hard was that the only air conditioner is in one of the bedrooms upstairs, so you are not able to shut the door to that bedroom at night and the basement did smell a bit musty when it got humid. We did keep the dehumidifier running, but it got really humid when we were there. This is nothing that would stop us from returning! We are very excited to have found this beautiful home on such an awesome lake. We will be returning next year for sure!
Best kept secret in the northern Minnesota Lakes area, just north of Pequot Lake off of 371. Nestled between the Brainerd Lakes area and Walker MN, you will enjoy excellent fishing, boating, tubing, biking, etc. without the congestion of the resorts.
