When it is time to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life and renew your body and spirit, there's no better place than the peaceful and scenic beauty of Northern Minnesota. Nestled on a private, wooded, 2 acre lot, this exceptional 5 bedroom log home on Swan Lake in Pengilly, MN is the perfect remedy for those busy days and crazy schedules.

Located on the quiet west bay of Swan Lake in Itasca County, the property offers 175 feet of picturesque lakeshore. The home is fully appointed for your comfort and convenience. It has a casual, very welcoming ambiance, and you should feel more relaxed the moment you walk in the door. The inviting, open floor plan is perfect for large family gatherings. Cook your favorite meals in the fully furnished kitchen. Enjoy the snap, crackle and warmth of the wood-burning stone fireplace on the main level. Sneak away to the loft and snuggle up with a good book, or get the gang together to watch your favorite movie on the big screen TV in the lower level. Almost every room has a view of the lake, and the large deck beckons you to sit and relax with your favorite beverage. Two screen porches offer a great view if the weather doesn't cooperate. Books, puzzles, board games, and a game room round out your indoor options.

No matter the season, there is an abundance of outdoor recreation available, either right outside your door, or very close by. Swan Lake is great for fishing, yet large enough for water sports. The public boat launch is right down the street. Bring your kayak or canoe and explore the back bay with its ducks and wild rice paddies. Build sand castles with your kids on your own private sandy beach. If you enjoy biking and hiking, drive into Pengilly and hop on the Mesabi Trail, a beautiful bike trail that runs from Grand Rapids to Ely. Whether you enjoy golf, cross country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, ATV riding, or just about any other outdoor activity, you'll find it close by.

If you are looking for less strenuous things to do, gather around the fire pit and tell your favorite ghost stories. Or do some star gazing away from the city lights. Look to the north over the lake and see if you can catch a glimpse of the aurora borealis. Watch the eagles soar over head and listen to the loons call to each other across the lake. If you are a crafter, we have extra tables and chairs so you can spread out and really get some work done on that special project. Antique buffs will be thrilled with many antique shops in the area.

The home can sleep up to 16 people comfortably. Bedding and towels are provided. Other amenities include high speed wireless internet, satelite TV, DVD player, gas fireplace, assorted outdoor yard games, and a Floe dock with a bench and fenders for boat tie-up. Arrangements for boat or jet ski rental, fishing guides, and other activities can be made in advance to enhance your stay.

Whatever your reasons for getting away, you will find that this exceptional lake home provides the perfect escape and will turn your vacation dreams into reality!
