About the property

4 Bedroom. 2 bath. sleeps 12. Large deck. Separate guest cottage.

Our Fox Lake cabin has been in the family for over 20 years. We love it and so will you! You and your family will enjoy unmatched privacy right on the water! They won't let you build 'em this close to the water anymore. The cabin sits 250 feet back from the dead-end road on a heavily wooded lot. No homes or cabins are visible- except across the lake. The top floor features a master bedroom with floor to ceiling lakeside windows, king-size log bed and a wood-burning fire place. Simply stunning! A 3/4 bath, another upper bedroom with bunk beds and a cozy loft with two single beds round out the upper floor. Main floor bath features an oversize jacuzzi tub. The first floor bedroom has a queen bed. The large kitchen features a dish washer, microwave oven, stove, double door refrigerator and ice maker. Other amenities include laundry room with washer/ dryer, wireless internet, and cable TV.

There is a wood burning fire place in the living room too. There is a Weber gas grill on the deck, new in 2015.

The place is not fancy, just comfortable and clean.

With our East exposure, you will experience fantastic sunrises, perfect for an early morning cup of coffee on the deck or dock. The morning sunshine feels great on those chilly Minnesota mornings. The property is sheltered from North and West winds, lots of 'calm water' off the dock.

Young children? Relax knowing the kids are safe and secure playing on the large lakeside deck- totally secured with locking gates. We installed the gates when the kids were young. A great feature with the lake so close. (The deck is so big, our kids ride their bikes and scooters on it).

Great fishing and swimming right from the dock. Ask us about hand-feeding the sunnies. They love bread crumbs. Fox lake is so clear you may see loons swimming under the water.

The swimming area is mechanically groomed to ensure a sandy bottom.

Two kayaks and a canoe are included with your rental! Fishing boats, jet skis and pontoon boats available for rent and delivery from nearby marinas.

Many restaurants, golf courses, bike trails and shopping opportunities nearby.

* Maybe the best feature of our cabin is the 'boat house'. It's been remodeled into a small guest cabin- sleeps two. Very private and special. Even closer to the lake than the main cabin. It's not for everyone though, you will need to walk about 50 feet back to the main cabin for bathroom facilities. It's worth the walk!!

About Jim & Jen Kleinheinz

Jen and Jim lived full-time at this beautiful lake property for many years before eventually moving to the Twin Cities. Now we make it 'Up North' every chance we can. Life gets busy though, with two young children to raise and careers to attend to, we are not getting to the cabin nearly enough. Jen is the owner of Jack Rabbit Properties, a real estate holding company based in Woodbury MN, and Jim is an airline pilot based in Tennessee.

It's going to be a few years before we can enjoy the entire summer at the cabin like we did in the "old days" before life got so busy. In the mean time we are happy to offer our lake cabin for short term rental. We look forward to meeting many new friends along the way.

Jim & Jen Kleinheinz purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Jim & Jen Kleinheinz chose Minnesota

The sounds of Summer at the cabin are unforgettable. The frogs and the loons try to outdo each other. In the evening they can get so loud that sometimes while sitting around the fire, we just look at each other and laugh. Then there is the moon. If you are lucky enough to catch the moon rising over the lake on a warm summer night, you're not likely to forget it.

The cabin itself sits about 10 feet above lake level so it's a very easy walk down to the dock. Privacy is yours! You will not be able to see the neighbors on either side- and they won't see you. (They're friendly though if you happen to see them on the lake).

What makes this cabin unique

Gradual slope to the waterfront and just steps away make it easy for the whole family to enjoy the lake. Fish and swim off the dock!

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cabin in the Northwoods.

As promised it was a very quiet nook except for the performing

loons, and what a beautiful lake view to wake up to. In addition

Jim and Jen were very easy to work with and went out of their way

to accommodate our schedule desires. We would return in a heartbeat,

thank you so much...

Fabulous lake home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful lake home. Perfect size for our fairly large family(9 adults 3 children). Love the layout for sleeping comfortably and room to spread out. The Windows alone are a selling point. Every room has Windows that bring nature right up close. The lake was quieter and very nice for swimming and boating. The kids and adults loved the tubing on the lake.

The house and grounds are wonderfully kept--this is a very special place. We had such a wonderful time.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this cabin. Clean house, quiet and private. We had young kids and between the large deck to play on and fishing off the dock there was always something to do. Plus the lake is so incredibly clear! Would definitely recommend this place for families to stay.

Try "sight fishing" on Fox Lake. Sight fishing means the water is so clear you can see the fish before you catch them. Just cast a fly or lure of your choice right on top of 'em and watch what they do. It's easy to figure out what gets a fish's attention when you can watch them react. Excellent Large-Mouth Bass, Crappie, Sunfish, Walleye and Northern Pike fishing. The kids can catch Sunnies all day long right off the dock.

Multiple championship golf courses in the area to challenge your skills. Also some "family friendly" courses that are fun and a little less demanding.
