About Jon & Lara Stewart

Jon and Lara were both raised and still live with our three kids in the Walker area. Can't think of a better place to live.

Jon & Lara Stewart purchased this house in 2005

Why Jon & Lara Stewart chose Minnesota

We bought this property in 2005 to raise our young family in. Since childhood we have both always lived on Leech Lake and this property offered many of the unique benefits to living and raising a family in this wonderful vacationland. The quiet rural setting with large level property gave our family plenty of room to enjoy the best of what Minnesota has to offer. For ten years we have enjoyed the outdoor living this property provides. Biking, canoeing, yard games, four-wheeling, snowmobiles, and of course fishing on one of, if not the greatest, lake in Minnesota have all been the joys of living on this property.

In 2015 we purchased a home and property in the city of Walker adjoining family property and much closer to our business. We still have the lake and the convenience to our business is nice, but we no longer have the peaceful tranquility and expanse this property offers.

What makes this house unique

In the many years we lived in this house, the southern exposure proved to be a huge benefit. Protection from the cold northwest wind meant we enjoyed many more days outside enjoying the yard, deck and Steamboat Bay. A northern exposure would have made these days miserable. The cold winds and rain usually do not come from the south. In the summer you can usually expect a nice southerly breeze off the lake to keep you comfortable. If you are vacationing in a questionable weather season it just may be the difference of enjoying the outside or staying in.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family loves staying at this house. Lots of space for the kids and don't have to worry about the kids too close to the water. Spacious and very clean. Always willing to make our stay even more pleasant. Hope to go back again.

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at Leech Lake. Staying in a spacious, beautiful home like this makes us all so much more relaxed. The families can spread out, a great yard for the kids, and everything we want or need in the kitchen to take care of a larger group. The beds are all comfortable and the place is clean from top to bottom. We already have our reservation for next year!!

The property was beautiful. The house was extremely clean, plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights at this property and had an extremely pleasant experience. We had a total of seven adults and five children and had plenty of room for everyone to sleep and plenty of room for eating and activities. The pictures on this website don't do the property or the house justice. It was extremely clean and had everything you needed except food. Jon and Lara are amazing. They were quick to respond to anything we asked prior to the trip and during the trip. We had a great time playing volleyball, lots of outside activities, fishing, bon fires and BBQ. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this to others. The kids caught a dozen or so fish right off the dock. Overall, great property rental!!!

All around awesome experience.

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a gathering at this lake home in early June. Simply put, this experience exceeded all of my expectations. The owner Jon is great to work with and the property worked out really well for our group. It is conveniently located and very well taken care of. It is clean and a very comfortable place to stay.

We had ten guys with pickups, trailers, and ATVs and there was plenty of room for it all. It was a short ride to the Paul Bunyan State forest trail system which was an unexpected bonus but really worked out well. We rented a pontoon and spent a day on the lake and the personal harbor is a great perk. We really appreciated the A/C when it got to nearly 90.

All in all it was an excellent experience. I highly recommend this property and the owner Jon. If you are looking for great place near Walker this one should be on your list.

Perfect lake place

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great weekend. Spacious house with plenty of beds and a HUGE lakeside yard, perfect for yard games. Caught fish right off the dock. Jon and Lara were very accommodating and we're always a call a way if needed but made you feel like it was "your" place for the weekend. High expectations were exceeded!

The property is located 8 miles north of Walker on Leech Lake. The Paul Bunyan paved bike trail runs past your driveway extending 115 miles from Baxter to Bemidji, and connecting to many other trail systems. Great for snowmobiling, biking, or hiking. There is also Hiawatha Beach Resort 1/2 a mile away and Anderson's Cove Resort just down the road. Enjoy a day at one of our local golf courses; Long Bow Golf course is 2 miles south and Tianna Country Club is 10 miles south. We are 8 miles away from downtown Walker which offers many great shops and dining establishments.
