The SpaceThe cabin is on a private island complete with 18 acres of old growth forest on Juggler Lake, Minnesota…3 hours and 50 minutes from Minneapolis and 1 hour and 30 minutes from Fargo. Ideal for a romantic weekend or a family vacation the kids will never forget. The cabin is an A-frame with 20 Ft. ceilings in the main room, three bedrooms, six beds (one king, two doubles, and 3 singles) and two bathrooms. The cabin includes a jetted tub in the master bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen with two refrigerators and two freezers, a Webber grill, a stone fireplace, and three patios facing North, West, and South. The cabin comes equipped with satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and a diving dock.
The lake is exceptionally clean and is perfect for swimming, boating, and water sports. The lake has excellent fishing especially in the spring and fall. You can catch fish right off the docks, but for bigger fish you will want to take the boat out. You can expect to catch Sun Fish, Perch, Walleye, Northern, and Bass.
The forest is full of wildlife and great for hiking. The island is 18 totally private acres of old growth forest, undeveloped and wild- explore the woods!! This is the only home on the island!! There are maples, birch, elm, white pines, and more types of trees. You can find morels in early May. There are wild strawberries, wild ginger, and lady slippers in summer.

Need a boat? We can rent you our pontoon for $100 a stay and we will meet you at the dock with the pontoon to give you tips on operation.... or you can bring your own boats to fish or ski. There will be a metal canoe for your use.
There are parking spots at the public access and a dock to easily load up the boat when you arrive. The island is about a three minute boat ride from the dock at the public access... or about six hundred feet from mainland.
You have the entire island to yourself to hike, play, fish, pick wild strawberries, or just relax in total seclusion!!
