About Steve Imhoff

Residing in a classic 20's bungalow in South Minneapolis, we have a passion for restoration and design. Operating a preservation home brand since 2006, celebrating successes on the waters of the northwoods is our getaway, and we are excited to share the vibes with you.

Steve Imhoff purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Steve Imhoff chose Brainerd Lakes

Trout lake is simply remarkable. As savvy real estate collectors, we patiently searched for our cabin for over 5 years. As soon as we turned the channel in Century through Trout, I knew that one day I would own property on the south shoreline, for its white pine/cedar tree wall is like no other in Minnesota.

Whitefish is 14 lakes channeled together, for a truly remarkable and wildly diverse boating experience.

What makes this cabin unique

Original cabins are being torn down by the hundreds annually on the chain, we chose to preserve and share ours, the shoreline and pitch of the lot is very unique. Boat houses are not longer allowed and having a structure on the waters edge provides a deep connection with the lake life, loons, and seasonality of Northern Minnesota.
