Step back from the hustle and strain of modern life into a place of peace and serenity, your own private island.

You can fly in or arrive by boat on this 2-acre island, with 1,000 plus feet of shoreline. Located near the Laurentian Divide on Wasson Lake in Northern Minnesota, this 404-acre lake has no public access, crystal clear waters with a sandy swimming area, few residents and a variety of fish.

The island has virgin White and Norway pines, plus birch, spruce, balsam and cedar. You have deeded mainland access with room for a garage and parking. The island is part of a land grant awarded to a Civil War veteran after the war. The current home was built in 1925 by an industrialist who wanted his own private get-away and remodeled by an avid pilot and architect for year-round living.

This home is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a house built right on the water’s edge seemingly floating on the water itself, the only home of its kind in this area. Changes to Minnesota law now require homes to be a minimum of 75’ from shoreline. Best of all, this home is grandfathered in, allowing you to make changes per your own personal flair.

The 3-level house features 4 bedrooms, 1 bath, new appliances and fixtures, two levels with wall to wall French Glass windows and is completely furnished. The 3rd level is a greenhouse which could be converted to extra living space. There are various outbuildings including a sauna right on the water. A Turn Key option is available, so you can step off the plane or boat and begin to relax and enjoy the slower pace of a time gone by.

Located in Itasca County Minnesota, South of the Canadian border. Nearby Bigfork and Grand Rapids are convenient shopping areas.
