Come and relax at this 3 bedroom/2 bath getaway located in the Hiawatha National Forrest. With full kitchen, private dock, propane grill, and fire pit Pining Away is sure to please. The modern touches amongst the raw natural space give this home an inviting and welcoming feeling. Take the canoe for a spin or jump in the kayak for some lake-fun. Everyone will enjoy swimming right on the property or fishing off the end of the dock.
For elementary school-aged kids, there is a rope swing (100lbs. or less), hammocks, and small zip-line (100bs. or less, 3 feet off the ground) outside for guests to enjoy. The inside lake-views of this home makes you feel like you are truly away from the city-life. Entertain on the screened-in porch or sip a glass of wine out on the deck with friends and family.
