Starting out with one cabin, this oasis has been in the family for many, many years. The original cabin started out as a hunting cabin in the 1940s and was later added onto. It is a cozy, bright, three-bedroom cabin, with a full kitchen and a wood-burning stove/fireplace, and a hard wired heater. The large deck accommodates outdoor picnics and relaxation. It has expansive lake views.
The birdwatchers cabin was built by the University of North Dakota for students to study certain birds on an island close by. It has a new trundle bed and two sleeping lofts. It is so close to the lake that the peaceful waves put you to sleep each night.
The west cabin was transported across the lake from a resort across the lake. It has three bedrooms, a full kitchen, dining room, and a large living room addition, with a wall of windows. The large deck accommodates all to watch the impressive sunsets.
The main house features a large vaulted knotty pine ceiling in the open kitchen, living room, dining room area. With a full kitchen which supports gourmet cooking, and a snack bar for cooking spectators, meals are always enjoyable in this spacious home. Other features include two large bedrooms, a laundry room, a three-quarter bath, a wraparound porch, and a great screened in porch for eating, playing board games, and putting together puzzles.
This would be a fishing enthusiast dream retreat. Two points on the island are where trophy fish are caught. They are the North Point and Red Rock’s Reef. Two new docks accommodate several boats. It’s only a 15 minute boat ride that seems to take you a million miles away! Be part of this ultimate retreat.
