Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Pauls’ Guesthouse is a fully-renovated and newly furnished 1980’s split level home situated on pristine Big Bass Lake, approximately six miles north of Outing, MN in southeastern Cass County (approximately 150 miles or three hours north of the Twin Cities). Bass Lake is a stunning mid-sized lake, with amazing 20-foot water clarity; it consists of three main bays with virtually all shoreline being fully natural with mature white and red pines reaching down to water’s edge. The lake has public access and is perfect for pontooning and fishing. The Guesthouse sits on 2.5 acres and is located across the mid-section of the lake’s main peninsula; it is a private setting with no sightlines to surrounding cabins.

The location is ideal – the Guesthouse is situated in Land O’ Lakes State Forest with immediate access to snowmobile trails in the winter and ATV trails during the remainder of the year. The trail system offers routes to bars and restaurants in nearby towns including Emily, Outing, Remer and Longville.

The Guesthouse comfortably sleeps six to eight people. It has three bedrooms and a large bathroom with walk-in shower on the upper level. Two bedrooms have queen-sized beds and the third has two twin beds; all are nicely appointed. The lower level consists of the kitchen, living room (with queen-sized sofa sleeper), dining room, laundry facility, half bath, and there is access to the attached garage. The Guesthouse was completely renovated in 2011 and all appliances and furnishings are new. This is a non-smoking facility. Pets will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Amenities include a gas-fired potbellied stove in the living room, central air conditioning, dual hot water tanks, phone, wireless Internet, flat-screened TV with a full range of cable and local channels, screened porch with picnic table, propane BBQ grill, fire pit with lounge chairs, and a 16’ dock. The Guesthouse’s kitchen is fully furnished for all of your cooking needs.

For your convenience, the local marina (Land O’ Lakes Marine in Outing) rents pontoons, fishing boats and speed boats. Rentals range from daily to weekly and they’ll deliver the boat to the dock prior to your arrival. Also, there are several favorite local restaurants to sample: The Village Inn in Outing (great full menu), The Deer Haven Supper Club (great for walleye and ribs), and The Anchorage Inn on Lake Inguadona (great for homemade pizza). Shop the shops and boutiques in nearly Longville, Emily, Crosby, Crosslake, Pequot Lakes and Nisswa; all are located within an hour of the Guesthouse.

About Paul Kirkman

I had been traveling to north central Minnesota for approximately 15 years and have fallen in love with this area because of it's exquisite beauty and the variety activities one can enjoy. In 2006, I purchased the peninsula of Big Bass Lake and ultimately made it my permanent residence in 2012. I own Itasca Leathergoods, a company that handcrafts moccasins, handbags, belts and other leather goods in Minnesota. We operate three branded retail stores, one of which is located approximately 40 minutes southeast of the Guesthouse. My partner, also named Paul, works as an IT director of a small software development company.

Paul Kirkman purchased this house in 2007

Why Paul Kirkman chose Minnesota

The Guesthouse is originally the caretaker's house for the main property. It is the perfect get-away. Accessing the Guesthouse is easy via main highways and county roads and is located approximately 150 miles north of the Twin Cities with a travel distance by car of about three hours.

The setting is ideal -- we're located on a medium-sized lake and the Guesthouse's location on the peninsual offers stunning lake views and complete privacy. The lake itself is gorgeous with natural shorelines and mature white and red pine trees coming down to water's edge.

Come here to relax and get away from urban life. You'll be surrounded by peace and quiet, as well as natural beauty. We're adjacent to Land O' Lakes State Forest which has some of the state's best snowmobile trails, and we're also adjacent to the Moose River Trail system for ATV trails. Also, we're within a short drive of the ever-popular Cuyuna Range Mountain Bike Trails, and we're close to cross country ski trails and golf courses.

What makes this house unique

My favorite thing about the Guesthouse's location is the variety of activities at your disposal. If you're looking for calmness and serenity, the lake environment is quiet enough that you'll hear the wind wispering through the pines and the loons calling. If you're looking for snowmobiling or ATV trails, access to the state's main trail system is nearby and accessible directly from the cabin. If you're looking for antiquing or shopping, destinations including Crosby, Crosslake, Nisswa and Pequot Lakes are all within about an hour of the Guesthouse.

Beautifully furnished and well stocked cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location on the peninsula was perfect.

Enjoyed the fire pit and dock. The lake was clear and calm. The owners certainly know what they are doing. We hope to come back one day. Highly recommended!

thanks Paul and Paul!

Great family get together cabin

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cabin to rent, this is the place to rent for your family. Paul and Paul are the perfect hosts, from the welcome basket to the pontoon ride around the lake one night. They make you fell very welcome and you do not have to worry about anything.

The fire pit is outstanding, you can sit around the fire at night and listen to the loons, what a great sound. The fishing is also fantastic right off of the dock or you can rent a pontoon like we did from land o lakes marine. I caught the biggest pumpkinseed off of the dock, over 1 pound.

You will not be sorry if you rent out this cabin. We are planing on renting it out again next year.

A retreat to rebuild body and mind

  • 5 of 5

Paul's guest house on Bass Lake is a place where families may share time and entertainment of the outdoor variety , go to sleep with lake splashing against the docks and the call of the Loons. There is space for togetherness and enough space to just get away from every one. There are interesting small communities in every direction to visit.And be certain to visit Itasca Leatherworks . You will want a sample of their work. The hosts of all this are generous and the setting beautiful. We want to return.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse was very nice and the property was well kept and private. The lake looked prestine ,although too cold to use at this time of year. There was also plenty around the area to keep us entertained. We took my truck on an off-road trail nearby which brought us through some beautiful scenery. It's definitely the kind of place to stay when trying to "getaway from it all" while still not having to go far to reconnect. Thanks for everything guys!
