House details:

This 2800 sq. ft. home was built to entertain groups. It's located on beautiful Sabin Lake and sits directly across the lake from the top rated Legends Golf Course. Shallow water, sandy lake bottom, great for kids.

The main floor consists of the mudroom with front load washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen (crock pot, blender, waffle maker etc), large center island and table, living room with TV and gas fireplace. The master suite has a queen bed, TV, double sinks, large shower and bathtub. The 2nd bedroom on this floor has a queen bed and is next to the bathroom that has a shower/tub.

The downstairs consists of a large family room with comfy sectional couch. A 60' TV w/ sound bar is great for watching sports and movies. There is a walk up bar area with a sink and another full size fridge with freezer so you have plenty of room for food/drinks. Bedroom 3 is on this lower level and has a queen size bed. Bedroom 4 is a custom built bunk room that has 2 twin beds over 2 full beds. There is a large full bathroom on this level with double sinks, bath/shower combo.

There is a deck off the upstairs dining area with a gas grill and sitting area. Walk down the steps to a large patio with 2 tables, chairs, fire pit and nice gradual slope to the lake.

Enjoy the use of our paddle boat, 2 paddle boards and 2 kayaks and explore beautiful Sabin Lake. Our lake shore is sandy and gradual slope so it is perfect for kids. The lake shore is the main reason we bought this lot! Fish or just hang out on the dock. We have lots of sand toys, floaties, life jackets for you to use.

There are hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails just across the street. The trails offer a dynamic path along the streams and large forested areas. The trails connect to the well known Mesabi Trail (which runs from Grand Rapids to Ely).

We paid extra attention to detail and kept the renter in mind when we designed this home. It truly is perfect for groups and we hope you love it as much as we do. Thank you for your interest in our home!

About Amber Herzog

We have 2 boys ages 3 and 5 (they keep us busy!) and live a few hours away in Andover, MN. We built this home with the plan to entertain and rent it to groups of friends or families. We absolutely LOVE it and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Amber Herzog purchased this house in 2013

Why Amber Herzog chose Minnesota

We looked for a rental property for several years and finally found the perfect location to build in Voyageurs Retreat (located across the lake from Giants Ridge Golf & Ski Resort). It has the best of both worlds- golf, hiking, biking, canoeing and swimming in the summer. Downhill ski, snowboard, cross county ski, sledding and snow shoeing in the winter. There are also hundreds of miles of ATV trails and snow mobile trails just a few miles away.

What makes this house unique

Swim, boat, golf, hike/bike/walk on all the trails in the summer. Ski, snow board, sled, snow mobile in the winter. Need I say more. It's the best of both worlds. There's nothing else like it!

5 Stars isn't enough@

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect! I stayed with my two children but could have easily had multiple families. The house is very well designed, clean and organized which made the stay very enjoyable. The view is spectacular, truly a special setting. Not to mention Giant's Ridge is very close so we were able to go back and forth to the ski slopes easily.

I would highly recommend this property.

Very comfortable home with room for all ages. Very well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

The reservation process was smooth. The owner answered all questions quickly. The house was like a home away from home. Great layout for larger family to have space and room to gather. The house had every amenity we could think of. Fun game table in the basement. Great location. We will be coming back next year.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Giants Ridge for 10 years on our annual golf getaway. We have stayed at the lodges and a number of other privately owned homes in the area. It was a consensus amongst the group this was the best accommodations we have ever had. Amber is amazing to work with and made everything so easy. She even went as far to get on the phone with their cable provider on a Sunday morning to get us DVR service so we could record the Vikings game while we played golf. Incredible! The home is gorgeous and perfect for a family vacation or group getaway. We will be returning next year.

Beautiful vacation rental in Giants ridge area

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a family golf and Rampage 5 K weekend. Beautiful well equipped home. Great location, nice beach, quiet. Enjoyed the use of the kayaks and ping pong table. Great fire pit and added bonus... lack of skeeters! Thanks Amber for opening up your amazing vacation rental.

Annual family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had multiple families with small children and many golfers! Three great golf courses nearby was a plus! The kayaks, paddle boards and paddleboat provided fun for all! Fully equipped kitchen made meal prep easy! Spacious areas to relax after an active day! Game nights and relaxing around the firepit added to the memories! Great week!

Family Fun - 2 Years in a Row!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this beautiful cabin and we cannot say enough good things about it or our trip. The layout is perfect for our 3 families. The kids bunk room is an amazing kid retreat and all other bedrooms are spacious and super comfortable. The owners have thought of everything you need for your vacation including a fully stocked kitchen, indoor toys/games, and lake toys. The paddleboat, kayaks and paddleboards are a nice bonus (seriously, you don't need to bring any extras with you). The beach is really clean and the water is gently sloped from the shoreline giving kids plenty space to play. The dock is long and generously sized for relaxing or fishing. The yard is sprayed for mosquitoes so that wasn't an issue either. The cabin is so close to hiking trails including the paved Mesabi, bonus for those who like to bike. We can't wait to return next year!
