About Dan Whitehead

Dan & Marnie Whitehead purchased this property in 1998 with the dream of clearing the property enough to put their airstream camper on it until they could build their own cabin. Together with their two young daughters, they accomplished their dream and built the cabin in 2003. They have been working on finishing the cabin by themselves for the past 10 years while enjoying raising their family.

Why Dan Whitehead chose Minnesota

We fell in love with this property because of the many lakes, parks, festivals and other community events that bring people together! The property is absolutely serene no matter what season!

What makes this cabin unique

East Leaf Lake not only offers a variety of activities on the lake but also on Leaf River which is also perfect for canoeing, kayaking & fishing. This is an excellent pan-fishing lake with good Walleye, Northern & Large Mouth Bass! The lake is perfect for families as there is low boat traffic on most days.

Peaceful, spacious and beautiful home on a really nice, private lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome week! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We're heading home, all of us missing the view from your spacious deck, the peacefulness of being away from the city and the relaxing beauty of the lake. What a nice lake...we went tubing and fishing, yet rarely saw anyone else out so even being on the lake was peaceful and relaxing! THANK YOU!

A Weekend of Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at your lakeside cabin! It is a beautiful cabin set in the north woods of Minnesota. It was clean and very comfortable for our adult family of five! We appreciated that our daughter and her husband were able to bring their dog. We enjoyed exploring Deer Creek, as well as Perham and Wadena. We look forward to our next weekend here!

Kind regards,

Denise and Ted Janzow, Rochester, MN

Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the above property on a cold winter weekend. We did some fishing but not on East Leaf Lake. Had a nice, relaxing weekend! The cabin is cozy especially with the easy on wood pellet stove that gave off ample heat and ambiance. We had all we needed to play games, watch movies and get some great sleep. The beds are comfortable and plenty of blankets are supplied. Clean and well-stocked with small towns nearby in case you forgot something. Thank you!

Amazing holiday weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect quiet getaway for a holiday weekend. It is located in a quiet location and was peaceful and serene. We spent the weekend watching movies, putting together puzzles, and reading. The cabin was clean, fully stocked with any kind of essentials you'd need, and very roomy. Highly recommended!
