About Margaret Ferber

I am one of several family members who own the cabin. This photo shows my husband and me with some of our family working on shoreline restoration a few years ago. I am the manager and will do whatever I can to make you feel welcome and comfortable during your stay at our cabin. I was born and raised in St Paul, MN and now live in Fridley. My husband and I enjoy spending time here with our family and friends who all love it here! We have 4 married children and 9 grandchildren.

Margaret Ferber purchased this cabin in 1952

Why Margaret Ferber chose Minnesota

Our cabin has a wonderful history. My parents discovered this beautiful property when our Dad was the camp director at Camp Foley on Lower Whitefish Lake in the 1930's. My parents built the cabin in 1952 and spent every summer here with their 10 children. It is now owned by my sister and me along with 5 members of the next generation (my 3 adult children and my nephew). We have extended family with cabins nearby so we all love coming up to have fun and spend time with family.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin has undergone several renovations with many upgrades over the years. So it has all the modern conveniences (including a state-of-the-art kitchen) but still retains the charm of the old days. Located on the north shore of Lower Whitefish Lake, it has the best swimming on the Whitefish Chain - hard, sandy bottom with no weeds! Cabin is beautiful, comfortable and lends itself to all kinds of family fun! Great for family reunions, entertaining family and friends. The fall is a wonderful time for quiet, restful weekends especially when the leaves are turning. Great place to enjoy 3 seasons of fun! Summer provides water sports & a place to escape the heat; Spring offers great fishing; Fall is a panorama of amazing colors when the leaves change! Great bike trails nearby!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely lake home with us. Every year or so we have to make a trip to MN for a loon "fix" and a walleye feast. The grandchildren loved the swimming and pontoon trips and we enjoyed lots of board games and conversation. It was a great way to spend a week.

Incredibly peaceful and home like!

  • 5 of 5

Our family felt like we hit the jackpot when we arrived for our week at your cabin! Everything was so clean and had more amenities and extras than we expected. We loved the full kitchen and had fun baking cookies and bars!

Swimming in the lake was wonderful. We loved sitting on the deck and the sitting area out at the end of the dock at night! We especially loved sitting by the bonfire and roasting marshmallows overlooking the lake! The new small cabin was perfect for our college daughter! We will definitely be back! This was the full lake cabin experience we were hoping for! Thanks for everything!!

Best one yet.....a little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to be for relaxing and taking in the awesome views of nature and wildlife. We have stayed in cabins from Oregon to North Carolina and this is the best one yet!

The accommodations were completely satisfactory and exactly what we expected.

Thanks so much to your family for being able to share in your piece of heaven.

Just the way vacations are supposed to be!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to thank you for sharing your great lake house with us. There wasn't anything that we felt could be improved upon. We did several days of sailing and lots of skiing. We spent most of our days down by the water and came in pretty tired - usually after sunset. Just the way vacations are supposed to be! Thanks again and hope we're be on the list for next year.

We have had a great week up here-only one day of rain and we managed to do a puzzle together:)

Thanks again for your great hospitality.

We had a great time! Great location! Would come again x2 weeks. The spacious house was great for our family. The lake view was wonderful. The kitchen was perfect! It was just what we expected, beds comfortable, washer/dryer nice. We enjoyed the sun porch and fireplace. Thanks again for sharing your lovely home with us. Just a little slice of paradise!

A magical week!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a fabulous vacation, this is definitely the place to go. Clean, well maintained, exquisite view, large kitchen, nice sleeping arrangements. The fishing was great right off the dock. Great bonfire pit and the kids loved the swimming and the sandy bottom! The owners were great to work with. We can't wait to go back this year!
