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.

Very kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

We have a 1 year old and a 2.5 year old and this was the perfect house for us. The beach was amazing! Very shallow for a long ways out with a sandy bottom and no weeds. Nice Sandy beach that our kids just loved and spent hours on each day. Our dog also enjoyed splashing around in the water. We are avid water skiers and Traders Bay was perfect. The house accommodated our family of 4 plus my parents perfectly. The house is exactly as Rick has described. We are already talking about coming back next year!

Best Rental around

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Loon Lodge with Work friends and neighbors for 6 years. We used to go to Lake of the Woods, but hate the resort fishing. We like to fish on our own plan. Loon Lodge allows us to stay on a world class fishing lake, in a fantastic cabin....on our own schedule.

This place is convenient, clean and we catch a ton of fish right there in Traders Bay. Rick has always been great to work with and the rental experience is flawless and affordable.

My group looks forward to this trip every year and this fantastic cabin is icing on the cake. We will keep coming back.

Look no further. If you want Leech Lake, Loon Lodge is the place for you.

Beautiful home on the water

  • 5 of 5

I was thinking more cabin than home when I booked this but this is a very nice home on popular Leech Lake. Coming all the way from California, I was totally unfamiliar with what to expect. This seems to be the place for serious walleye fishing but the area also has attractions for everyone else not so interested in fishing. My wife appreciated the modern amenities as opposed to the rustic retro experience I was anticipating, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay even though we experienced the Mayfly outbreak (they don't bite but certainly are plentiful) and some rainy windy Minnesota weather. My wife got her surrogate dog fix from Amber, the golden and a black and yellow lab a few doors down. All in all, a nice stay.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home and the area. The place had everything we needed. Walker's restaurants were so good that we didn't eat in the cabin as much as we though that we wood. Very relaxing place.
