Overview

About the property

3+ BR, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8, Spacious, Refurbished, On a Private Lake

Formerly listed as 'Hideaway' with Loon Point Resort.

Refurbished year-round lake home with knotty pine interior on 25 acres of Minnesota woodland, 600 feet of lake frontage with 100 feet of solid sand bottom at the dock area. Perfect for couples, honeymooners, or families on vacation.

Spacious main level with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, large kitchen/living area with wood-burning stove, and screened porch with table/chairs for outdoor dining; on lower-level, 1 additional bath and large rec room/bedroom that opens on to outdoor patio; rec room includes satellite TV and Internet access (e-mail or text only; no streaming video).

Central heating, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Bedrooms: 1 king bed, 1 with 2 twin beds, 1 with a double bed, 1 pullout queen sofa in lower level.

Private dock and screened gazebo; fish cleaning table, life jackets, 14' Lund fishing boat, Honda 9HP motor, 1 tank of gas, and Grumman 17' Standard Aluminum canoe provided. There is no public access to Wasson Lake; guests may NOT launch their own boats or other water craft.

Fishing: Wasson Lake is approximately 500-acres in size and spring fed. It has 17 feet of clarity with a maximum depth of 67 feet. With 4 islands and numerous bays, boggy shore areas, and submerged trees, it provides an idea fish habitat. The lake has northern pike, large- and small mouth bass, crappies, and recently a few Walleyes have been taken from the lake; however, they are not native to the lake. We have always used lures, minnows, or worms as bait. The near-by Scenic Pines Store sells bait and can give you specific advice.

Hunting: We are not hunters ourselves so I can only tell you what our cabin neighbors have told us. In season, you'll find White Tail Deer and we've been told that the Grouse hunting is good. Although we are located in the George Washington State Forest, we do not allow hunting on our land and most of the lake owners do not as well--it's just too populated. However, there is ample public land in the state forest as well as nearby county and federal forests.

Here are some links to additional hunting/fishing information in Itasca County.

Minnesota is strict about moving boats from one body of water to another as a way of preventing invasion of damaging species. So far Wasson Lake is free of any such species!

**NOTE: All bedding (sheets, blankets, pillows) is provided; however, guests must bring their own kitchen and bath towels, other personal items, and fishing gear. Guests provide their own meals.

Much of the forest around Wasson Lake is second and third growth and is currently dying. Thus, in 2013, we began an overdue project of forest stewardship by selectively harvesting overgrown poplars and aspen, and planting over 4500 new red pine, white pine and hardwood seedlings. Within a very short time, we will see a beautiful new forest begin to emerge. This summer we spotted Red Pine that are now almost 3 feet tall. The forest is coming!
