Whether your dream vacation is boating, water sports, fishing, shopping and dining or reading a book on the shores of a beautiful Northern Minnesota lake you need look no further. This lake home provides the perfect setting for a family or several couples to take in fun filled days, relaxing evenings by the campfire, watching the sunset or dining at one of the area's great restaurants only minutes away. Walk 25 feet down to the dock and enjoy the beautiful sandy bottom beach, perfect for swimming and playing.

The house consists of an original red cedar log home with a kitchen, bath, bedroom, great room / dining room and a comfy loft with plenty of seating for relaxed gatherings.

About Monica McGill / Niki Sipes

The Point Cabin was purchased by our parents in 2000 after more than 15 years of staying at resorts on Leech Lake. Our parents restored the cabin to like-new condition and added on in 2008. Sadly, our mother passed away in 2010 and life took our father in a different direction. In 2018 we (Niki and Monica, along with our husbands, Jamie and Ben) had the opportunity to purchase the family cabin. We look forward to not only our family continuing to make memories in our beloved home, but for your family to make lifelong memories here as well!

Why Monica McGill / Niki Sipes chose Walker

After vacationing in the Walker / Leech Lake area for many years, falling in love with the area and making many friends we decided we wanted to own a property here so that we could spend more time enjoying all that we had come to love. After much looking we chose a charming red cedar log “cabin”. It was a private refuge with a secluded, calm “up-north” feeling. Over the years we remodeled and finally added on in 2008 creating an amazing retreat. Life then took us in a different direction and we didn’t have the time to spend at the lake that we once had. We decided to maintain our family cabin and make it available to others as a remarkable rental property.

What makes this house unique

The Point Cabin, as we call it, is uniquely situated on a small point of Kabekona Bay affording incredible, panoramic views of this beautiful Northern Minnesota lake. You will enjoy a 180 degree view of the bay. A mere 25 feet from the water the cabin provides an intimacy with the lake that few other properties can. Less than 10 steps and you are on the dock. There is also a beautiful lawn to enjoy lawn games, a fire ring for the marshmallow roast or relaxing and telling your favorite Minnesota ghost stories. Cast a line from the dock, take a swim in the sand bottom swim area or read a book in the hammock. A short walk and you can access the area's trail system or rent a boat/jet ski and enjoy fishing or water sports on this protected bay. Prefer shopping or dining? The Point Cabin is located about 3 miles from downtown Walker and even closer to one of the area’s finest restaurants, Boulders (Reservations recommended!). Whatever you decide to do on your vacation, this is the place to do it.

Pictures do not do justice...this place is stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lake home and it was absolutely fantastic. We voted as a family that this was by far our best VRBO vacation rental yet! The home was clean, decorated nicely, comfortable, and had every amenity you could think of. The location was perfect too. There were neighbors, but it definitely didn't feel like it. We loved our time here and will most definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us.

Beautiful, Relaxing Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent! These owners did not place old pictures on their listing. The cabin/home looks exactly as illustrated. I kept thinking this would be a great home for a movie setting. Every room was decorated with care in a north woods atmosphere. A lot of kitchen equipment provided. Icemaker in the refrigerator! Clean and well maintained. The owner was friendly and responded quickly to any question I had. Our twelve-hour drive was well worth the effort. We will return for more sunsets! Thank you to the Tray family for opening up your home.

spring fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

We visit Leech Lake every spring for a fishing trip, and though the fishing wasn't the best this year the lake home was incredible. (I actually did catch a walleye off the dock the second night.) We stayed for 6 nights, and the house was almost too big for us. The views and the sunset were beautiful. Exceptional property.

Beautiful, spacious cabin well built and well cared for. Our kids are high school and college age, and they all thought the cabin was as great as we did. We plan to stay again.

Great up-north feel

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is very nice and well maintained with a lot of character. We have been coming to the Walker area for many years and this is such a great location, close to in town amenities while still having the up north rustic feel. We truly enjoyed our time at the cabin!
