A peaceful oasis. 

Sitting on 25 acres of private shoreline in northern Minnesota's leading vacation destination, this Arts & Crafts lakefront estate home built by the descendants of Frank Lloyd Wright is truly magnificent. Abutting the Crow Wing State Forest, this stunning property provides a high degree of privacy on one of the nation's cleanest lakes. The main lodge, modeled after the style of renowned architects Greene & Greene, was built in 2003 and won that year’s national award for Best New Residence, as well as being featured in a number of publications. The history of the property dates back to 1917, when the original cottage was constructed for use as a family retreat. Refurbished in 2003, the cottage now serves as a caretaker's house.

The property is rich in both Native American history and sublime natural beauty. Located on the shores of Muskie Bay, the estate is situated on Lake Ossawinnamakee, considered one of the best bass fishing lakes in the state, and is within a short drive from the country's largest Native American reservations. Reflective of the region’s history, the site was the center of the 1799 war between the Ojibwa and Dakota tribes, and the home is appropriately decorated with many pieces of Native American artifacts from both traditions.

In addition to the main lodge, caretakers quarters and sauna there are two docks. The property is located in close proximity to many activities in the area, including world-class golf courses, water sports, fishing and hunting. Available for additional rates are a cook, massage therapist, and yoga instructor, all of whom are committed to making your holiday relaxing, effortless and fun. We also rent out the Pontoon. Canoes are free to use.
