About Rick Storlie

Hello! My name is Rick Storlie. I have a 9 year old son Mason and 11 year old daughter Breanna. I live in Savage, MN and I'm originally from Northfield. I'm also an alumni of St. Cloud State University.

Rick Storlie purchased this house in 2005

Why Rick Storlie chose Minnesota

I looked all over northern MN and western Wisconsin before deciding on Walker MN and Leech Lake. Hayward WI and Brainerd, MN were just too commercial for me. I love the small town charm of Walker and the boating/fishing opportunities on Leech Lake. The area has tons of attractions with golf, great restaurants, shopping, hunting, biking and hiking to name just a few.

I love to hunt and the Chippewa National Forest has some great grouse and deer hunting. In the summer running/biking is awesome and I'll spend a lot of time on the Paul Bunyon bike trails. Having dinner at Chase on the Lake in downtown Walker is a treat too.

The best part is you feel like your up north but the drive is manageable from the twin cities.

What makes this house unique

Probably the best part about my home is the beach. The kids will play out there all day swimming, fishing and making sand castles. It's one of the best swimming beaches for kids we've ever seen with a pure sand bottom, gradual slope to the lake and shallow depths.

I love to eat out on the deck and watch the kids play. The deck faces east so you don't get cooked by the sun in the afternoon. The walk to the beach is nearly flat and there's a great spot for campfires (I supply the wood). You can find chairs for sitting next to the fire under the deck.

One of the overlooked aspects of my home is the privacy. The road is private and a dead end with about 12 cabins. There is an environmental lake across the street so no homes are built there. I only have a neighbor to the north and south.

I've pretty much remodeled the entire home since 2008. There isn't much that wasn't replaced. I'd describe the home as a 'raised ranch.' The basement has about 6' of headroom with a 3/4 bath, scrapbooking/crafting room and laundry facilities. There's plenty of room to store your gear too.

Upstairs you have a split bedroom configuration. One side of the home has 2 bedrooms separated by a full bath. The other side is the owner's suite. Living areas are in the middle. Make sure you check out our video tours in the links section.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! The house is fantastic, and very well kept and appointed. We found that the best fishing was about 100 yards straight out from the house in 14 ft. of water. We ventured to other spots and locations, but right out front was best. I will recommend your place to friends that are looking for a very nice lake get away. Only suggestion would be the 2 twin mattress's are getting kind of "contoured" Thanks again for such nice accommodations.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful clean and well equipped cabin. Enjoyed the great view of leech lake. Very quiet and relaxing place on dead end road. Caught fish right there in traders bay. Wood burning stove to sit by and warm up after a day of ice fishing was great. Garage was great for parking atv's and portable fish houses. Its about 15 to 20 minutes from grocery store, restaurants, and casino. We will definitely be back.

Great place on Leech

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with its quality and view. The sunrise through the kitchen window each morning was great. The garage was great for storing our ice fishing gear. It had nice log furniture also. We will stay again!

Another great year at Loon Lodge

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year using the the cabin for our hunting trip, and we couldn't ask for a better setup. This cabin is very cozy for late fall and winter months. There is nothing better than coming back after a cold day of hunting, fishing or whatever and sitting up in the cabin with a nice fire. We really appreciated the way that Rick has everything set up for ease of use. I didn't even unpack half of the stuff I brought up since it is already there for you in the cabin. I would highly recommend a trip to Loon Lodge regardless of the time of year. You will not leave disappointed.

Thanks for helping to make our hunting season memorable.

Reece, Randy and Ed.
