Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Remer

Sleeps 6-10, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 2 Bedrooms in Cabin and 2 Beds in Bunkhouse

Private Lake Home on an Excellent Fishing Lake. A superior value compared to a resort stay.

This recently remodeled, (2011), and updated 4 season lake home is located on Deer Haven Bay on crystal clear Thunder Lake 7 miles south of Remer, MN and 2 1/2 hours north of the Twin Cities. The cabin maximum occupancy is 6 people. The newly remodeled, (2014), air conditioned/heated bunkhouse offers additional sleeping for up to 4 additional people in 2 Queen Size Beds. This property offers the privacy and peace and solitude not found at multiple cabin resorts.

Relax or enjoy your meals on a large shaded deck with a patio set and a nice view of the lake and swimming area. The property is on a large level 7 acre lot with 165 feet of lake frontage with a nice sand beach and large dock.

The large dock doubles as mooring for boats up to 20 feet in length and as a swimming and suntanning platform. The 12X12 platform has bench seating and enjoys a southern exposure. The kids will enjoy the multiple species that can be caught right from the dock.

Relax at the end of the day in a large living room with leather sofa and love seat which contain 4 reclining seats and a 46 inch flat screen and Blu-Ray DVD.

The available bunkhouse also has a sectional sofa and 46' TV and Blue Ray/DVD player.

The Chef in you will enjoy the well-equiped kitchen. Don't feel like cooking? There is also Deer Haven Supper Club on the same bay reachable by car or boat.

In addition to excellent Walleye, Bass and Crappie Fishing, nearby attractions include:

* Access to the Moose River ATV trail and the Soo Line ATV Trail

* The Cass County snowmobile trail

* Multiple Golf courses within 20 miles

* Shopping and services 7 miles North in Remer

*Turtle Races and other family fun 15 miles away in Longville in the Summer.

About Tom Wicht

My Mother purchased the property as a retirement home in 1996. After her passing in 2010, my wife Diane and I decided to remodel and offer the lake home for rental. We've put a lot of work into the lake home inside and out and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Tom Wicht chose Minnesota

The property offers a large level lot close to the water in a protected bay. The Home sits in a private, peaceful setting with extensive landscaping and lots of space. If you want to feel relaxed after your vacation, this is the place; a far superior value to large resorts. Thunder is a picturesque 1,300 acre lake offering excellent fishing, cedar and pine covered shorelines and gin clear water. Anglers can look forward to excellent Walleye and Small/Largemouth Bass fishing and plenty of crappies and sunfish.

Private Lake Home Rental on Thunder Lake

Chisago City MN

Love this place. Spent a week last June (2015) and back for a week in September. Returning this June (2016). Has everything you could want/need. Back in a bay, quiet and private, but can take a boat or pontoon ride to other side of bay and have a drink or nice meal at Deer Haven. Hubby is a die hard fisherman, out every morning before dawn and after dusk and we always go home with a nice catch of fish. No other lake we would rather be on.

First visit July 2015

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Tom & Diane's property was indeed a memorable stay. Our group has been renting from this site for years and this was the best ever. The cabin, bunk house, lake and location were perfect. Every morning was spent on outdoor patio with a view of the lake. The fishing was excellent and the scenery was outstanding. We all agreed that a future visit would be a must. Tom & Diane are very gracious hosts and helpful. We would recommend this to anyone. I gave this a 5 star because "it was earned" Thanks again Tom & Diane for a great vacation

Returning visit

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lake home and property. Private and serene. Stayed in June 2014 and returning June 2015. We have rented cabins on Thunder every June for past eight years and this lake home was definitely our favorite place and best value. Great for both adults and kids, have recommended it to friends and family.

Second Visit to Thunder Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at this beautiful property on Thunder Lake and once again we had a most wonderful experience. We love this place! It is truly a gem in the north woods and Tom & Diane are such gracious hosts. They go out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable for which we are very appreciative. Thank you both for sharing your lake home with us again and for another memorable vacation!

Beautiful lake home and great fishing.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures did not do this lake home justice. This lake home was better than the description. We were delighted with the beautiful lake home, the lovely gardens and breathtaking lake view. The home was clean and well maintained, and a great value. I would definitely recommend this lake home to friends and family. I would definitely be a repeat customer.

Remer Cabin-Thunder Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was a great cabin. The big yard was great for family games and campfires. We had a great time fishing and going to the sandbar on Thunder Lake. I would recommend this cabin to anyone seeking a quiet and comfortable cabin. The owner was great in telling you everything you needed to know about the cabin and the listing was accurate regarding location and the pictures tell the store of the cabin. Would recommend to all
