Why Steve Tary chose Minnesota

After vacationing in the Walker / Leech Lake area for many years, falling in love with the area and making many friends we decided we wanted to own a property here so that we could spend more time enjoying all that we had come to love. After much looking we chose a charming red cedar log “cabin”. It was a private refuge with a secluded, calm “up-north” feeling. Over the years we remodeled and finally added on in 2008 creating an amazing retreat. Life then took us in a different direction and we didn’t have the time to spend at the lake that we once had. We decided to maintain our family cabin and make it available to others as a remarkable rental property.

What makes this house unique

The Point Cabin, as we call it, is uniquely situated on a small point of Kabekona Bay affording incredible, panoramic views of this beautiful Northern Minnesota lake. You will enjoy a 180 degree view of the bay. A mere 25 feet from the water the cabin provides an intimacy with the lake that few other properties can. Less than 10 steps and you are on the dock. There is also a beautiful lawn to enjoy lawn games, a fire ring for the marshmallow roast or relaxing and telling your favorite Minnesota ghost stories. Cast a line from the dock, take a swim in the sand bottom swim area or read a book in the hammock. A short walk and you can access the areas trail system. Or rent a boat or Jet Ski and enjoy fishing or water sports on this protected bay. Prefer shopping or dining? The Point Cabin is located about 3 miles from downtown Walker and even closer to one of the area’s finest restaurants, Boulders. Whatever you decide to do on your vacation this is a great place to do it.

Exceptional "Up North" Retreat in Walker, MN

  • 5 of 5

This cabin/home is awesome and my family had a fabulous time staying here for 3 nights while attending a wedding nearby. We loved the way the home was decorated...very classy "Up North "decor and everything about the home was so welcoming and cozy. The lakefront and dock are superb. Our favorite parts of the day were sipping coffee out on the dock in the morning, playing games in the family room, and enjoying bonfires in the fire pit most evenings. We hope to come back again next summer and enjoy water activities and fishing on the lake. The owner was very easy to work with and I would highly recommend this VRBO to others.

Great time in beautiful log home near Leech Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family went up to the Walker area and stayed at a beautiful log home which was on a bay of Leech Lake. The home was large, had everything we needed or wanted and was within 3 miles of so of the town of Walker, which made it easy to run to town if we forgot something. We were very happy with the rental and all the amenities that were included. It was large enough for our family of 10 (including two toddlers), had a great large family room that held the whole family. The TV was awesome and was perfect with the one rainy day we had. This is a great place to stay if you are in that area.

We enjoy staying here each year. The property is beautiful. The lake is great for everyone wanting to fish, swim or kayak. We are close to bike trails and golfing so everyone can enjoy their favorite activities.
