Up North Oasis for Families and Fishermen, Trader's Bay, Leech Lake

Our lake home is an open-living concept home that was completely remodeled in 2007 with quality in mind. The open concept area features beautiful cathedral ceilings, a massive real stone fireplace, a large dining area with an 8 foot log table , and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops. The living room area seats a large group comfortably with a sectional, oversized chair, and a log futon sofa. This area can be used for additional sleeping space, if needed. There is a large flat-screen tv in this room also.

The rest of the house contains the four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a laundry room, and a second living room.

Up a short carpeted flight of stairs are three bedrooms. They all have Wildlife themes and hand-crafted log furniture.. Two bedrooms have French doors that open up to a large lakeside screen porch. The third bedroom looks out over the heavily wooded backyard.

The three upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom that has a large vanity with two sinks and many drawers and cupboards to stash your toiletries. It also has a deep, jetted tub/shower.

The downstairs bedroom has a large, 3/4 bath across the hall.

The laundry room is fully equipped with a new HE washer/dryer, utility sink, and all the supplies you will need for your stay.

The downstairs family room has two sofas, with one being a double hide-a-bed, providing additional sleeping spaces, if needed. This room has a flat screen television, gaming station , a children's play area, and a work station with an all-in-one printer. (Yes, some people have to work even when they are on vacation!) This room has a no-step exit out to the lakefront.

We have patios on both sides of the house and ample furniture to accommodate large groups. We provide a gas grill with propane for your use also. And, down by the lake, we have a fire pit for the daytime hot dog roast or the evening campfires.

We also have a Boathouse that has been converted to a rec room. It has a ping pong table, foosball table, music system, sandbox toys for the little ones, and lawn games. The boathouse is a great place for the guests who like to burn off a little energy or just want some separate space.

Our property has a 60 foot long dock and a 3000 pound capacity boat lift with electric assist to make getting out on the lake a breeze. The dock has electricity available for charging boat batteries. The swimming area is accessed from the dock, because the shoreline is rocky. The water level where the sand bottom begins is about a foot and a half. At the end of the dock, it is 4 feet deep. We have put in a small beach area in front of the boat house for little ones to have fun in the sand. We have a canoe, paddle boat, and two 10 foot kayaks available for guest use. The kayaks are stored in the boat house along with a number of life jackets. (Infant, children, and adult sizes)

On the west side of the property, we have a screened, lighted fish-cleaning building with a large stainless steel table to make fish cleaning convenient and bug-free. There are outlets for electric filet knives and a garden hose attachment for easy clean up. A bundle of wood for campfires will be found in here. There are also two bikes for use by our guests.

Also, our long circular driveway gives the property lots of space for parking cars and boat trailers. Our property is quite spacious so everyone can have privacy to getaway and relax.

Leech Lake stay
Very nice property and the house was very child friendly. Only downside was not being able to use the fireplace on cold day.

5/5 Excellent

Exceeded my expectations
Thank you goes to the Gardener family for sharing your place with us. We had a great time.

Excellent Family Retreat
This is a great property for enjoying the lake. Cabin is very spacious and clean. Views to the lake are excellent and close to the water to enjoy watching kids swim. The boat house is a great tough to play games if the weather is not good to be outside.

5/5 Excellent

Labor Day Vacation
I brought my family here for the first time this year for our labor day vacation. The cabin was beautiful and decorated so cute! The kitchen was well stocked for cooking needs. The game room adds a nice little touch for the kids and adults to enjoy. We had a nice bonfire each night down by the lake. It is convenient that the resort right next door has boat and pontoon rentals. We would definitely go again!!

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic family fun
Enjoyed everything about the place. Loved our bedroom with walkout screened in porch...that sandy area for the kids to play was exceptional along with the swing set and lake toys; canoe, paddleboat and kayaks...all in all a very decent week! Plus my 25 inch walleye wasn't too bad either 😊
