Recreational Tract With Cabin And Frontage Along The Bigfork River


Wow, this place is beautiful!! Are you looking for that place where you can kick back relax and watch a Northern MN river peacefully flow by? While out walking on this property and boating down the river I literally felt myself unwind as it made me slow down and take in its beauty!! The acreage is split by the Bigfork River. The Bigfork River is known to have walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike and muskies. If you head upstream you’d eventually get to Dora Lake. Downstream leads to the Rainy River up at the Canadian border. The property has an awesome cabin that sits within view of the river. The one-room cabin is set up to be powered by a portable generator. For heat, there’s a wood stove and a propane wall heater. You can fish right from shore or use a boat, canoe, kayak you name it. The property is accessed by either truck or car down Eckman Rd. It’s more of a minimum maintenance type road that the seller has maintained when needed. The seller has a gate at the edge of his property and only him and a neighbor who has an easement can access through the gate. To access the other side of the river you can either boat, canoe or kayak a short distance up or down the river. I drove the boat to near the west border parked and walked the ground north of the river. You can actually hunt the part across the river really smart and enter from several spots along the river instead of walking through all the timber just to get to a stand in the north type of thing. The other nice thing about the river splitting some of the property is that summer use of the cabin and river life won’t mess with the deer’s life north of the river too much by constantly bumping them around creating a sanctuary of sorts. The river would also allow for great duck and goose hunting and jump shooting in the fall! The land is also attached to tons of public lands as well for added room to roam.  I could also see this property and cabin being an awesome place to use as a place to base out of for a weekend snowmobile trip and riding the river and nearby trails!! This is a beautiful must-see place call for your private showing today!!
