Mallard Point has a been a Northwoods destination since it's heyday as a resort in the 1950's. Although the resort days are over, we're continuing the tradition with resort-style lodging and amenities for two of the cabins. This listing is for Cabin 1, a cozy guesthouse right on the water with exceptional views of the lake. It's stocked with everything you need, inside and out, for a memorable lakeside getaway.

The space
⇸ High ceilings with large windows that face south for exceptional views of the lake and natural light.
⇸ Open format living and dining area, accommodates 4 people comfortably.
⇸ Gas range and kitchen stocked with all the essentials- cookwareware, dishware, coffee, soaps, towels, etc.
⇸ Loft with a quality king-sized bed and ground floor bedroom with two twin beds.
⇸ Fully winterized with a gas fireplace.

About the Property
Cabin 1 is one of two guest houses for rent on this private peninsula, in addition to the owner's home. Each cabin has its own fire pit area on the lake side and other outdoor spaces are shared. It's a great setup for those who want a getaway but enjoy meeting others.

What We Love About It
We love the access to the lake, it's so easy to get out paddling, fishing, sailing, snowshoeing, or just take in the views from an Adirondack chair. You can expect to see other guests or our family enjoying the beach, grilling out, or fishing on the dock. You'll also likely see otters, beavers, loons, and eagles just outside your door. Prairie Lake is quiet and has little boat traffic, lots of undeveloped shoreline, and picturesque gorge at the southern end. The water is shallow and gradual along our little sand beach for small children to play.

Our location is halfway between downtown Grand Rapids and the Chippewa National Forest, it's just 10 minutes to get to XC ski trails, hiking, trails, and premier fishing lakes there.

Welcome all! I'm excited to share my place with you. Until moving to the Northwoods of MN, I worked as a landscape architect in the USA, Australia, and Pacific Islands. Now I focus on creating a great experience for my guests, caring for my awesome kids, and following my real passion of designing and building furniture. I love adventures big and small, from sailing to remote Pacific islands to jumping in the lake in November. I believe in thoughtful living and I try to reflect that approach in our rentals.
