About Jackie

We are a retired couple that has enjoyed the good life on Shingobee Bay for nearly 20 years. We owned and managed a smaller rental property next door for the last 12 years and have enjoyed getting to know return vacationers each year. You'll enjoy complete privacy at your vacation rental home knowing we're available should help be needed.

Jackie purchased this house in 1992

Why Jackie chose Minnesota

Before our time on Leech we had a small cabin on a smaller lake and moved here to enjoy the benefits of being on a relatively small bay with all the opportunities that come with big lake access. We love a sunset cruise into Walker, taking the boat into town for a run to the Dairy Queen, or going out to dinner via boat at one of the many great restaurants on the lake. We can boat to some of the best fishing spots in all of MN and our Shingobee Bay is often quite calm compared to the big lake.

What makes this house unique

We love every season on Christmas Point. Shingobee Bay, greater Leech Lake, the nearby town of Walker, and the Chippewa National Forest are all at our doorstep (not to mention some of the most spectactular sunsets). Shingobee Bay is a particularly great part of Leech Lake because of its long and relatively narrow shape - it's a rare day when it's too windy to play on the water and boat traffic is generally quite low. There is great fishing in the bay and kids can always catch fish right off the dock. It has been a wonderful home for our family and now for us to enjoy with our grandchildren.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Leech Lake for the 19th time as a family and had a great time. The house was very nice the owners live next door and were very helpful with any questions we had. I would recommend this rental to anyone who wants plenty of space a beautiful view and direct access to the lake. There are quite a few stairs to get to the dock but we never has any problems. We took 3 boats an 18 foot and 20 foot fishing boat and a 24 foot pontoon boat and the dock handled them all very well. Hopefully we will be able to return for another stay.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a wonderful week of vacation at Christmas Point Cabin. With 10 people we had ample room. Cabin was clean and well maintained. Plenty of room for all indoor and outdoor activities. Owners were very accommodating to all our needs. Views were great. Dock and deck were excellent. Very well equipped cabin. Located close to many attractions and town. Weather was great when we were there, but many games, cable and internet if needed. We will be returning next year.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to book 1 week vacation on Leech Lake and found this place great for the size that we were going to need to sleep everyone comfortably. Our stay was even better than expected. The house is very spacious, lots of sleeping and sitting area (inside and out). We rented a pontoon and also brought our fishing boat and had no problems having both tied to the dock during the week plus still having room for the kids to fish of the dock. The owners were very accommodating and truly thought of everything! The weather was perfect the whole week, but if it had been bad weather there were games to play inside along with cable and internet. The kids also had plenty of room to play inside and outside. Very close to downtown Walker and only a hop, skip, and jump to the Casino. The view is amazing and Shingobee Bay is perfect for fishing, and water sports which we did it all! Also very easy to cruise on over to the main lake. The property was very clean and provided a stress free, fun and relaxing vacation for everyone in my family, not always easy to please everyone, but this property truly did! Thank you!
