2 Bedroom Leech Lake Lakefront Cabin With Dock And Shore Station
- english, french, spanish, italian
I love nature and traveling. I have stayed in bed and breakfasts and guest houses all over the world, and my family decided we should share our peaceful cabin with you!
Skye purchased this Cabin in 1965
Why Skye chose Cass Lake
My grandparents built this cabin in 1965. They chose the location for the fabulous fishing on Leech Lake. My dad and grandpa won numerous catch and release muskie awards. I'm working on a quilt of all the muskie patches and will display it at the cabin eventually.
What makes this Cabin unique
The lake is always changing. It is a big lake, so even the storms are beautiful. As a child I would dream about swimming from the cabin to Goose Island- it looks so close by. Darn those nautical miles!

Quiet and Quaint; Needs a Little Love
The Good: If you have a boat (I don't) then this is the place for you: no weeds, a decent lift (in as much as I know these things), and a nice bay. The view is fantastic. The beds are very comfortable. Not too far from amenities (just look at a map--if you don't like the distance...find a place closer to town), and its more remote location makes it quiet. Pretty close to bike trails (my main deciding factor). The neighbors seem friendly and it's nice to just get away. The washer and dryer are great to have (again, being a biker, that was a big consideration: the ability to wash stanky clothes). Skye is very easy & friendly to communicate with, and the rules are clear and straightforward. The well water is actually very good--not a lot of sulfur or iron.
The "Neutral" (not Bad, per se): The place, being older, has that slightly musty smell--but I expected that. It was warmish the week we were there, and humid, so that might have exacerbated the issue. No AC, but again, just read the description--having it, or a dehumidifier, might help with the damp feel. And, of course, being in the woods, lots of spider webs etc. on the outside--however, the trees keep the place cool, so it depends on what one is looking for.
The "Unattractive" (not "Ugly", per se): The main issues were... 1) the tub drain. I am the queen of 2 minute showers, and Dad is the same, but the tub took, like, 20 minutes to completely clean out after both of us took one--the second person in ankle-deep water, basically. Apparently, Skye had not been told this by others, so I assume that will be addressed. 2) the seating; the views from inside are great, and the patio facing the lake is nice--but the chairs, both inside and out, are just not comfortable. One can only do so much with patio furniture, but the inside stuff is ancient, with covers. It just needs to go, and be replaced with something like a sectional couch or similar. Kitsch is great and all, but both Dad and I were more comfortable chilling in our beds. 3) Finally, the rugs; again, sentimentality is fine, and it's nice grandma made them, but old is old--and not as clean as the rest of the hardwood floors, since rag rugs that large are hard to wash.
I was a last-minute book, and so I certainly am not complaining, or expected the Taj Mahal. I am just a realist; and Skye was very easy to work with, which always makes a trip easy and great.
Great Getaway Destination
Had a great time! Great communication with Skye. Accurate description of the place. Beautiful lake scenery. Thx again!
Great vacation home
Very peaceful good fishing and great area.
Great vacation property!
Our kids & I had a wonderful relaxing week. It allowed us to disconnect from work and have quality family time. The property and scenery was what you would envision in a northern MN home. We would recommend this location to anyone. Leech lake is a good fishing & playing hole that anybody would appreciate. Thanks to Skye for opening up her home for others to enjoy!
3 day getaway
Very quiet & peaceful. Beautiful location & view.
Fantastic Getaway Spot
Really a fantastic little cabin. Remote enough to give you that true North Woods feeling, but close enough to civilization that you can make a run into town for graham crackers when your kid wants more smores at the campfire. Highly recommended!
