Our private peninsula has been a Northwoods destination since the 1950's when Mallard Point Resort opened. Although the resort days are over, the cabin tradition lives on here at The Point. This is one of two cabins that have been completely renovated into cozy guest houses and stocked with everything you need for a lakeside getaway. Enjoy staying right on the water with 330° views of quiet Prairie Lake. It feels away from it all, but you're minutes from town.

Cabin 2 is one of two guest houses for rent on our property. This cozy, lakeside cabin features high ceilings and natural light all day long. Large windows in the living area look out onto the lake. The water is so close guests have said it feels like being on a houseboat. The loft has a quality king-sized bed and the ground floor bedroom has two double beds. It’s is a combination of modern and rustic, with warm, natural wood finishes, an open living and dining space, and a kitchen and bathroom stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is no TV, but games and puzzles are provided and you can connect your own devices to our super-fast WiFi. Cabin 2 is slightly larger than Cabin 1, with a more spacious kitchen and living area, dining for six, and space for an air mattress if needed. It's winterized and available all winter so you can curl up by the fireplace and warm your toes after skiing or with a good book after a long week of work.

Pontoon available for $220/day ($110/half day) Friday through Sunday, fuel included, self-captained.

What we love about it

We have the best of both worlds- we're on the lake, but close to town. It's just 10 minutes to downtown Grand Rapids. Being located on a peninsula also means that we have lakeshore on either side instead of neighbors!

The Point was a resort in years passed and it still has a resort feel to it today, just smaller, slower-paced and more peaceful. Each cabin has its own firepit and charcoal grill in front, but otherwise all outdoor are shared. You can expect to see other guests or our family enjoying the beach, grilling out, or fishing on the dock.

The surrounding area has exceptional XC ski trails within 15 minutes. We also groom our own circuit on the lake. You can access snowmobiling trails directly from our property via the lake.

Prairie Lake is quiet and has little boat traffic, perfect for paddling and fishing. Visit the rocky gorge, reminiscent of the Boundary Waters, at the south end of the lake, take in sunrises and lake breezes on the dock, and enjoy watching beavers swim past and listening to the loons sing. The water is shallow and gradual along our little sand beach, perfect for small children to splash and build sand castles.

Other things to note
The Property
This former resort was built in the 1950's, when things were a bit more compact and neighborly. Our family lives here on the property and we have two guest cabins. Three of the original cabins still exist on the property as well, although they are not currently in use. Outdoor spaces are shared and you can expect to see us and other guests during your stay. We are family friendly & all are welcome here.

Pet Policy
We are pet-friendly but are firm on our rules about pets. Pets must stay off of furniture and beds. We ask that you use natural flea/tick repellents that are safe for children and the lake. Our pet fee is $40.

Boat
We have a pontoon boat for rent $80/4 hours or less, $160/day.

Events
We allow events with the rental of both cabins. Please inquire.

Location

Grand Rapids, Minnesota, United States

Although the expansive lake views give the feeling of seclusion, we're just five miles from shops and dining in downtown Grand Rapids to the south and less than 10 miles from the National Forest to the north. Entrance to the Taconite Trail and Mesabi Trail, one of the longest paved trails in the nation, is less than two miles away. Access to numerous, well-maintained cross-country ski trails within 15 minutes. Direct access to the nearest snowmobile trail via the lake. The bait shop, convenience store and public boat access are just a half mile away.

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. Don't be shy, say hi on insta {at} thepointcabins
