Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Minnesota - Anita Silker

5,400 fsq. 3b,4ba,4+car garage,4 filreplace.7decks,dock,2kitchens

Gull Lake Cabin in the woods sits in a Prime Location on a channel with access to Gull Lake. Our Cabin is right in the middle of the famous Gull Lakes Vacation area. Just a few steps from Bar Harbor and short walk to Zorbaz Restaurant.

The 5400 sq feet Cabin has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It includes 7 decks, a dock,King size beds in all bedrooms, 2 Master Suites-- each with 2 decks,fireplace, Jacuzzi,and 2 separate shower heads--2 kitchens,Table tennis,Billiard table ,Internet,Library, office, and a dinning. Additional sleeping options include a Queen pull out sofa, an additional double high queen air mattress and two large couches.Granite counter tops, hickory doors and trim. The floors are hardwood and porcelain tile.

The Gull Lake chain with all its connecting channels, is so unique and romantic compared to other Minnesota Lakes. We fell in love with our backyard, where we get to hear the Loons and even watch them raise their baby Loons. They are so special and the chicks know by instinct to crawl up on their moms back to enjoy the ride around the lake.

Good restaurants. Good summer fishing. Great access for snow sports, like snowmobiling,cross country skiing and ice fishing. Perfect location for anglers in the World's largest ice fishing contest.

About Eddy Silker

Retired Dentist and his beautiful wife built their perfect retreat in this land of 10,000 lakes where they intended to spend all of their time together. Then they decided to travel extensively and for a few years after which they will return to their lovely nest in the lakes.

Eddy Silker purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Eddy Silker chose Minnesota

I grow up on the lake. at 18 years old I owned an operated a resort name after me 'Eddy's'. I built and ran a fishing guild business on Mille Lacs lake.

The last 20 years I live in Gull Lake and love every minute of it.

Amazing, expansive lakeside home with every accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Eddy's home for the 4th of July last year and it was a seamless experience. I stayed with a dozen friends and we had a great weekend. The house is spacious and roomy with fun inside and out. It was clean and kept when we arrived. Eddy greeted us to exchange keys and information and then was on his way. Helpful and happy :)

I highly recommend this rental and Im disappointed I couldnt secure it in time this year. Great place! Great location!

Beautiful home! We had a great time fishing on the dock, canoeing, and jet skiing! Relaxing atmosphere and plenty of space for 5 couples. I liked the outdoor grill and big kitchen to do all of our cooking. Owners were easy to talk to as well!

Impressive

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. All hardwood and Tile floors, two master suites upstairs, a giant living room and an even bigger basement. We entertained 12 at this house for 3 nights and had a great time. Big kitchen and fridge to accommodate the crowd, and awesome dock, close to the marina for boat rentals and walkable distance to Zorbas!!! The deck and basement patio were awesome, the grill is built into the brick outside the basement patio making for easy serving onto the brick serving table next to it.

Ping Pong, Pool and a big screen TV in the basement kept us busy when we weren't eating, sleeping or out on the water.

Thanks for the fun Ed, don't be surprised if we stay there again.

Cheers.

Waterfront home!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you pull onto the driveway, anticipation reaches an all-time high. You immediately realize the pictures, albeit awesome, do not do this place justice! before you can set your suitcase down, you know you have ARRIVED! the comfortable bedrooms, the view of Gull Lake . . . it's all truly amazing! This is not a cabin. This is not just a lake home. This estate is a piece of heaven up north. Beautifully warm and cozy, and invitingly comfortable for entertaining or a romantic getaway. It is obvious that this place is loved by its owners and all who pass through its doors. As for the area, for those of us who know Gull Lake, nothing more needs to be said. For those who are experiencing Gull for the first time, I dare say this Minnesota treasure has it all - in every season - gorgeous water, beautiful scenery, excellent bars and restaurants, great shopping, world class golf, spas, snowmobile trails, hiking trails, and wonderful, wonderful people at every turn. We have been fortunate to enjoy in the summer, fall and winter. I am hard pressed to say in which season is more enjoyable. One of the greatest weekends we had was a weekend when it was 22 below zero. We cuddled by the fireplace, listened to great music, watched movies, made wonderful meals, and reconnected with each other. Eventually the temps warmed to a point where we could venture out on the snowmobile trails and take in the wintry beauty of Northern Minnesota. We have also enjoyed the warm summer sun and time on the water, as well as the beautiful foliage of autumn. Another impressive feature is the owners' determination to make us feel at home and relaxed. We were greeted with simple instructions climate control. etc. These folks want to share their love of this incredible place, and they do! Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a couples weekend or a family getaway, this place is conducive to fun, relaxation and romance! Do not hesitate to book. Seriously - you will not be disappointed.
