Enjoy our 2900 sq. ft. home located on Steamboat Bay of Leech Lake. This house has an amazing open kitchen/living/dining area overlooking the lake and front yard.

The home can comfortably accommodate 15+ people: on the main floor there is one king bedroom, one queen bedroom, one full bath, kitchen, living room, dining room, second living room, and a laundry room with a 3/4 bath. On the second floor there is two queen bedrooms and an open room that has a double/twin bunk bed and a single bed with a 3/4 bath. The large open kitchen and center island area gives you plenty of room for preparing meals for big groups. The second living room with TV allows a nice area for guests to get away from the main living space. Beautiful deck located on the lakeside for enjoying coffee or the evening BBQ while absorbing the breathtaking views. The property is an amazing three acres of flat level ground with a front yard large enough for any summer activities. Perfect for a family vacation, family reunion, fishing trip, or wedding.

About Jon & Lara Stewart

Jon and Lara were both raised and still live with our three kids in the Walker area. Can't think of a better place to live.

Jon & Lara Stewart purchased this house in 2005

Why Jon & Lara Stewart chose Minnesota

We bought this property in 2005 to raise our young family in. Since childhood we have both always lived on Leech Lake and this property offered many of the unique benefits to living and raising a family in this wonderful vacationland. The quiet rural setting with large level property gave our family plenty of room to enjoy the best of what Minnesota has to offer. For ten years we have enjoyed the outdoor living this property provides. Biking, canoeing, yard games, four-wheeling, snowmobiles, and of course fishing on one of, if not the greatest, lake in Minnesota have all been the joys of living on this property.

In 2015 we purchased a home and property in the city of Walker adjoining family property and much closer to our business. We still have the lake and the convenience to our business is nice, but we no longer have the peaceful tranquility and expanse this property offers.

What makes this house unique

In the many years we lived in this house, the southern exposure proved to be a huge benefit. Protection from the cold northwest wind meant we enjoyed many more days outside enjoying the yard, deck and Steamboat Bay. A northern exposure would have made these days miserable. The cold winds and rain usually do not come from the south. In the summer you can usually expect a nice southerly breeze off the lake to keep you comfortable. If you are vacationing in a questionable weather season it just may be the difference of enjoying the outside or staying in.

This place is FANTASTIC!!! Highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

My family (15 of us) stayed at the house over the Labor Day weekend and we had a blast! The house was perfect for us and our three daughters and their families. So much space!

Jon and Lara were great to work with and they thought of EVERYTHING a family would need while staying there, including games for the kids when it was raining outside. The little kids loved playing on the swings/slide and the playhouse. The kitchen was well equipped and deck were great for cookiing. There was fire wood in the shed and we loved sitting by the fire at night making s'mores.

We rented a pontoon boat from Hiawatha Beach Resort just down the road that was big enough for all of us and went to the sand bar, which was a perfect place for the kids to go swimming, build sand castles and collect shells. We even caught some perch while we were cruising around the lake.

It is definitely a family friendly lake home and I would highly recommend staying at this place if you want a fun, relaxing time with family.

Thanks Jon and Lara!

The house was great. Worked perfect for a guys fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. The pictures online do not give justice for how large and nice this house is. More than enough room for 12 guys to sleep. We are already talking about planning a trip for next and staying at this property again.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family loves staying at this house. Lots of space for the kids and don't have to worry about the kids too close to the water. Spacious and very clean. Always willing to make our stay even more pleasant. Hope to go back again.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at Leech Lake. Staying in a spacious, beautiful home like this makes us all so much more relaxed. The families can spread out, a great yard for the kids, and everything we want or need in the kitchen to take care of a larger group. The beds are all comfortable and the place is clean from top to bottom. We already have our reservation for next year!!

The property was beautiful. The house was extremely clean, plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights at this property and had an extremely pleasant experience. We had a total of seven adults and five children and had plenty of room for everyone to sleep and plenty of room for eating and activities. The pictures on this website don't do the property or the house justice. It was extremely clean and had everything you needed except food. Jon and Lara are amazing. They were quick to respond to anything we asked prior to the trip and during the trip. We had a great time playing volleyball, lots of outside activities, fishing, bon fires and BBQ. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this to others. The kids caught a dozen or so fish right off the dock. Overall, great property rental!!!

The property is located 8 miles north of Walker on Leech Lake. The Paul Bunyan paved bike trail runs past your driveway extending 115 miles from Baxter to Bemidji, and connecting to many other trail systems. Great for snowmobiling, biking, or hiking. There is also Hiawatha Beach Resort 1/2 a mile away and Anderson's Cove Resort just down the road. Enjoy a day at one of our local golf courses; Long Bow Golf course is 2 miles south and Tianna Country Club is 10 miles south. We are 8 miles away from downtown Walker which offers many great shops and dining establishments.
