Rum Runner's Retreat


This secluded property is nestled on 10 acres of woods, next to state forest land.  The long driveway gives the feel of being "off the beaten path" with the convenience of  being on a paved county road.  Some of the area attractions include:

  • Soo Line Trail (miles of multi-use trails - my favorite is Redtop between Onamia and Isle)
  • Kathio State Park (hiking, horseback riding, and cross country ski trails)
  • Father Hennepin State Park
