About Linda

After many hectic years in the Twin Cities, moved 'Up North' to enjoy a more laidback lifestyle. Nothing seems quite as urgent when you are on the water.

Linda purchased this house in 1995

Why Linda chose Minnesota

We built two homes on this peninsula in the mid-1990s. My husband and I live in one of the homes. Friends and family stay in the cabin when they visit (it's actually a year-round home - we just call it 'the cabin'). We hadn't made use of the cabin as much as we once did, so in 2007 we decided to open up our cabin as a vacation home rental.

What makes this house unique

I love summer nights that are just the right temperature to leave the windows open, and then listen to the loons call to each other in the morning. There is no better way to wake up.

Great time, great fishing!

  • 5 of 5

A nice, relaxing week at the lake. Lots of fish in the water, lots of fun in the cabin. Can't think of anything that was missing. What a well-stocked kitchen! Plenty of room for our crew of 10, with 8 beds to choose from, twin to queen. My elderly parents especially appreciated the walk-in shower upstairs. Love the big boat house to store things, and paddleboat rides with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Loved our vacation!

Enjoyed delicious meals made possible by well stocked kitchen. Enjoyed nearby attractions including Sterns County Museum, brewery, thrift stores & parks. Would have appreciated more lamps by bedsides. Menopausal ladies loved the downstairs bedrooms! Woodpecker & eagle provided wild life adventure.

In MN for work

  • 5 of 5

We had to work in the area for a little more than a month. It was great to move out of the hotel and into a real house with a real kitchen, and plenty of room. The five of us were very comfortable. The owners were easy to work with. We managed to grill out a lot and had a few fires, too.
