How many times have you enjoyed the amazing beauty of Voyageurs, Quetico or the Boundary Waters Canoe Area? Maybe the time is right to find yourself the perfect lake cabin to start enjoying this unique, special place as a local!
Minnesota is known as the land of lakes, since the state offers thousands of square miles of untouched northern wilderness, much of it covered by tranquil, glassy rivers, lakes, and waterways. Finding a beautiful secluded lake cabin is the goal for many in the Great Iron Range area. Who wouldn’t want to wake up every morning enjoy a cup of coffee, then head out onto the water to watch the sunrise over the pines? Or, even to just listen to the sound of the loons and the gentle waves on the shores of your own private Minnesota paradise?
So, how do you find this elusive Great Iron Range area lake cabin for yourself? You can start by asking yourself a few questions about your dream Minnesota lake cabin.
A Few Tips on Finding that Perfect Minnesota Lake Cabin
How often will you use the lake cabin? Will it be a weekend retreat or full time residence? If you won’t be there every day, you might want to think twice before putting an offer on a 3000 sq. foot cabin. The last thing you will want to do every weekend you are there is clean all that square footage! But, if you will be living there full time, look beyond that A-frame with a tiny kitchen, you’ll need some room to roam!
Do you want prime waterfront or a short distance from the lake? Having access to the lake and living on the lake are two different experiences, each with their own sets of pros and cons. Though rare, you do have to worry about having the lake in your home if you live on it. And if you live near it, you may want to think about how you are going to get to that lake. Can you handle the daily walk or won’t mind the drive?
How about neighbors? Do you like to have them? Sometimes the lake lifestyle is a quiet and secluded one, with your neighbors being a dock away instead of right next door. Make sure you see how far your neighbors will be and make sure that it’s the lifestyle you are looking for.
