About Richard Bilger

We built this home and are the only occupants until we moved across country for occupational reasons. We raised our son here amongst the trees and wildlife giving him a well rounded appreciation for nature.

Richard Bilger purchased this house in 2000

Why Richard Bilger chose Minnesota

We purchased this property to build our dream home on Leech Lake in Walker, MN. We discovered a peaceful and serene little bay that provides easy access to all of Leech Lake for fishing, skiing, sailing and boating of all kinds. State Trails for hiking, biking, as well as, snowmobiling and cross country skiing in the winter are less than 1/2 mile down this quiet neighborhood street surrounded by picturesque Northern Red Pines planted over 75 years ago.

What makes this house unique

This property is full of natural wildlife such as deer, fox, Eagles, birds of all kinds including hummingbirds if the feeders are out and the occasional spotting of local Black Bear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed your home for the three nights and

four days that we spent up north. The location of your home to the

Heartland and Paul Bunyan Trail was excellent. We found your beautiful

home to be perfect for what we were looking for and you also provided

perfect weather for our bike trip. We spent a good part of our early

mornings and late afternoon's on your deck enjoying the beautiful view

and "great" view of the lake and its' wildlife. Thank you for making it

possible to have a wonderful trip to the north land of Minnesota.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was absolutely beautiful! It was clean (which my family is very picky about), well taken care of, and had everything we needed to cook. The bedrooms are all spacious and had no trouble accommodating all of us! It was particularly great that there were only 2 TVs in the entire house (one in the family room down stairs and one in the master bedroom). That was a blessing in itself, it forced the kids to actually play games with each other and entertain themselves. We were a little bummed we couldn't use the front deck, given the storms that had rolled through the are the week before we arrived. Either way the deck was beautiful. The sun porch was the best part of the house in my eyes, so relaxing!!! We made great use of the kayaks that were provided, even better that we weren't on the busy end of the lake so the kids could use them as well. Thanks for letting us stay there!

Awesome family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful vacation home! Everyone slept comfortably, the hide a beds downstairs and on the porch also came in handy for extra sleeping. A very serene setting and gorgeous yard, front and back! Our grandchildren explored their little hearts out! The town of Walker is a nice short drive away with wonderful shopping and restaurants. We recommend Bensons, delicious pizza!

Richard answered all our questions about the house and surrounding area, we would definitely stay here again! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home that accommodates large groups easily. Great location, just 4 miles from Walker and 1 mile from bike trail. Well stocked with the basics and so spacious with lots of beds for everyone. We had a great week at this home and I would highly recommend it to others.
