About Debbie Eickhorst

Our family has owned a resort since 2003 on the same lake as this home. Also, in a prior life, we owned a 400 site campground in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Before resorting, we were landscapers owning a snowplowing business and a garden center. We love the outdoors and the animal life that comes along with living in this beautiful Buena Vista State Forest.

Debbie Eickhorst purchased this estate in 2013

Why Debbie Eickhorst chose Minnesota

This property called to us mostly because of the view. There are windows all along the lakeside of the home. It is the most amazing view. It is a short ride to the city of Bemidji, yet sits on a quiet, clean lake with great fishing. We are close to Biking and Hiking Trails, Big Bog Walks, State Parks, Itasca - The Headwaters of the Mississippi, where you can walk across the beginning of the Mississippi River, and the famous Paul Bunyan and Babe Statues. There are many golf courses in our area along with other activities such as bowling, curling, horseback riding, mini-golf, movie theatres, antique shops, restaurants, winery tours, festivals, and more.

What makes this estate unique

We live on Big Turtle Lake. So, we are already charmed by the clarity of the water, long summer evenings, lack of boat traffic, and amazing sunsets. The view from the living room, kitchen and two of the bedrooms is 'THE LAKE'. It is only 65 feet from the shore. What more is there to say. The entrance is quite grand. It has a large open concept living room & kitchen and the feeling you have sitting on the patio is serene. A small creek runs along the left side of the home. Trees block the neighboring home to the right.

Bemidji Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with private dock & beach, but with full access (2 miles by car) to the amenities of a full service resort (rental boats-fishing & sport, indoor pool, beach & water playground, coordinated events). The lake home is spacious with a fully equipped kitchen, laundry and functioning Wi-Fi service. Our party of 11 was very comfortable. The patio leading to a fire pit just above the beach was our focal point most days and evenings where we were constantly entertained by ducks, loons, and an otter patrolling the lake. Ideal for families/reunion. Excellently maintained property. Neighbors were nearly non-existent. We felt secluded.

Take advantage of our State Parks, Hiking and Biking Trails, and Bog Walks. We are on a very clear lake great for swimming and fishing for Walleye, Northern, Bass, Crappie, Sunnies and Bluegill.
