About Kari Kroll
My grandparents owned a cabin in the Walker, Minnesota area. I have wonderful memories of visiting them at the cabin. My dream is to someday be able to offer my own grandchildren a getaway to grandma's Up North. My children are long-time villagers at the Waldsee German Camp located on this lake. I am a German teacher in the Twin Cities and I have lots of time in the summer to own a cabin. I rent it out to help "make ends meet." I dream that someday I'll have repeat guests whom I trust that come year after year and make it their special place too.
Kari Kroll purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Kari Kroll chose Bemidji
The main room is the dining hall of an old logging camp, built in 1935. As we have been renovating we found so many wonderful clues to its past. The third bedroom used to be a kitchen with a serve-through window to the main hall. We found the cook's doggy door. The old door in the master bedroom used to open onto a long screen porch where the lumberjacks probably hung their gear.. You can still find the old stone steps down to the cement landing for the logging boats. This cabin has a lot of history and character, yet the updated kitchen makes it so much better than "roughing it." You can find old white pine logs in the lake abandoned on the bottom of the lake. The dining room (now living room) floor was handmade out of white pine. Old cedar trees, which are very rare in the area still stand on the property. I have a small liquor and medicine bottle collection in the kitchen that I found in the garden.
What makes this Cabin unique
Neighbors are super- dog friendly. The neighboring housing association has very lenient rules regarding dogs. You'll often find other family's dogs off leash and stopping by for a play-date. Because of the Turtle River's constant flow through the lake, it stays very clean year round. There is a healthy population of loons, bald eagles, pelicans and trumpeter swans on the lake.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property.
We welcome DOGS of any size or breed.

Having a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer at the cabin - what could be better? Super!
Great, clean, and spacious
Clean, large property with excellent amenities. Space for kids to play and fire pit for fun camp fires! Close to the Concordia Language Villages and town of Bemidji. Very convenient!
The house has a perfect lay out for families- open but still cozy.
Quiet and Relaxing
The cabin on Turtle River Lake was spacious and clean. It had all the essentials already there including fantastic supply of games for all ages. The dishes, pots and pans and glasses were in great shape and the kitchen lay out made it easy for multiple people to prepare food. I think it would be a great cabin to host a family reunion or holiday there. Just like it says in the description it is an old cabin but that just added to its charm.
Fabulous lake. Fabulous property. Great views. Easy to communicate with owner. Would definitely stay there again!
Really great cabin
My family had the most wonderful time here. Loved eating on the deck, looking out over the lake (it feels like you are right on top of it!) and watching our kids swim. Very conveniently located to Bemidji while still feeling like we “got away from it all.” Lots of space inside the cabin - I appreciated all of the seating areas. Thanks for a great stay!
Had a great week.
On the same lake as Concordia Language Villages.
