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.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

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!

Very comfortable, warm, and relaxing. Quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed our interactions with Dan and Marnie too. If we lived nearer we would very likely come again!

Our stay at the cabin was wonderful. It was a quiet and peaceful location. No motorized activity on the lake except for very few fishing boats. Lots of space to play lawn games. The fire pit was a ways from the cabin, but in a uniquely secluded space. The openness of the cabin was enjoyable for all of us. The loft worked out very well. All kitchen essentials were provided. Next year I will not have to bring any of the cooking things I did this year, everything you would need is in the cupboards. The cabin is very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed many hours on the wraparound deck from morning til night. If you want to fish, bring a boat.....lily pads surround the dock.

We had an awesome vacation at Dan and Marni's cabin. We hope to return next year. We would highly recommend this spot if you want a quiet relaxing time.

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The cabin was very well maintained, clean and well-stocked. Beautiful area too. The owner is very responsive. The canoe got some use and the pike were biting in the lake. I'd recommend this place to anyone!

I rented this cabin for a weekend away with the girlfriend. The cabin had a full array of cooking utensils, a gorgeous view, and Mr. Whitehead was extremely accommodating to questions and last-minute changes. I have no qualms about recommending this cabin to a friend and I also hope to rent it again in the future.
