About the property

2200 sq/ft of lake living, brand new top to bottom with a beautiful beach!

Beautiful, completely updated 4 bed, 2 bath lake home on desirable Island Lake. Located only 20 minutes north of Duluth, this 10,800 acre lake is well known for great fishing, swimming, and boating in the summer and snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice fishing in the winter.

Nearly every inch of the house has been updated, both exterior and interior. Each room in the home offers an amazing view of the lake. It features 3 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, along with a smaller bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The living room is expansive, complete with a large sectional couch and gas fireplace finished with field stone, along with a large LCD TV for those rainy days. Wi-Fi is also available. The gourmet kitchen features granite countertops, two sinks, professional 6 burner gas cook top, dishwasher, double ovens, and beautiful solid cherry cabinets. Best of all, the kitchen overlooks the gently sloped lawn with a perfect view of the water. The bedroom downstairs, off the kitchen, features a twin-size bunk bed with a pocket door. The bathroom downstairs provides a large linen closet, stand up shower, toilet, and large vanity. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a gorgeous view of the yard and beach area. It comes equipped with a queen bed, two nightstands, LCD TV, a dresser, and closet. The second bedroom also has a beautiful view of the lake along with a queen bed, dresser, and closet. The third bedroom is complete with an expansive lake view, full-size bunk bed, dresser, and closet. The upstairs bathroom includes a full bathtub w/ shower, vanity, and toilet. Outside, the wraparound deck provides lots of space to get some sun, along with a large firepit for s'mores at night. A 4 burner propane grill is available for bbq'ing. The large yard, perfect for lawn games, has a gentle slope down to the private beach area. Protected inside a private cove, without any neighbors, the sandy beach makes this location the perfect swimming hole for little ones or adults. You will enjoy all the comforts of home at this stunning lake home on Island Lake. Please note that lifejackets and beach towels are not provided.

About Chad

My wife and I grew up in the Duluth area; in fact, she grew up with a cabin on Island Lake! We have a two year old daughter who loves the water, so when we found this place, we jumped on the opportunity to own something on a lake. We are new to VRBO but we are committed to making your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Chad purchased this house in 2016

Why Chad chose Duluth

We purchased this house at auction in 2016 and it needed a lot of love. We gutted most of the house down to studs and refactored the layout quite extensively. For example, the master bedroom used to be where the kitchen is and the kitchen used to be where the front entry is! Additionally, the roof was in poor shape, the siding was black from years of neglect, and the well was not functional. We put a significant amount of energy and time to bring this place back to life.

What makes this house unique

My wife completely fell in love with the yard and the beach when we first walked the property. The gentle slope down to a private, sandy beach really set this property apart and made it ideal for families. While the house itself was in poor shape, we could see the potential and decided to take on the challenge.

Great lakehouse on a very quiet lake!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 6 nights in late July. There were three couples and two children and we had plenty of room in the house overall. Plenty of towels for us for the full week, bedding was all great, and all the other amenities in the house were more than adequate. This house is all of 30 minutes from downtown Duluth on a very secluded drive. We enjoyed the amazing sunsets every night by the fire. There is no AC, which was stated in the description of the property, so when we arrived all the windows were shut so it was quite warm and took some time to cool down. The temperatures during the day were around 72-80 and got down into the low 60's or upper 50's at night so perfect weather. The master bedroom would get pretty warm on full sun days in the afternoon. The lake was very clear and the beach area was great for the kids to play at and also to go into the lake as it was very shallow. My son caught his first bass off the dock one evening which is a great memory we will never forget. If you would own kayaks or paddleboards I would definitely bring them along as the lake would be perfect to go out on either. Overall this was a great property and we enjoyed our week!

Great cabin for a large group

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our twin two year olds, my parents, and my sister, brother in law and 6 month old nephew stayed for 4 nights. The cabin was spacious and we never felt on top of each other (even with all the junk we packed for the little ones). Our girls loved playing in the water, the beach is perfect for toddlers and young kids because it’s pretty shallow for a while. They also had a playhouse and slide that occupied the girls for hours! They were in heaven! It was a bit hot weather wise two of the days we were there. Without AC i was worried we’d get some random hot days, but they had lots of ceiling fans and floor tower fans, so it wasn’t as bad as I feared. The nights cooled down and we were busy in the water during the hottest day. The lake was so peaceful, and the surrounding area/neighbors quiet. I’d definitely recommend this cabin to friends!

Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

Worked well for six adults and four teenagers. Lots of room to play games and sit around and talk. Campfire was very enjoyable. The bedroom off the kitchen was very small and too warm for one couple.

Unfortunately, the temperature was very hot the day we arrived and it was too hot to stay in the house until dusk. Fortunately, the weather cooled down at night and the remaining days were comfortable. Usually a nice breeze.

A very clean and updated vacation get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredible place to stay. It is very clean and updated. The view is spectacular and it was nice to have direct access to the water.

It was a perfect location to celebrate my mom's 90th birthday with family. Kate and Chad even left her a beautiful orchid, which was so thoughtful and appreciated.

We look forward to returning.
