Getting ready for spring
Lots of snow on the ground in our area this winter and we are really just getting into the time of year where we can get some big snowfalls. That being said last year the ice was off the lake on April 7th so spring is not too far away. Bruce and I are looking forward to a great spring season in Sioux Narrows, Nestor Falls and Morson. Buyers and Sellers are starting to think about spring as well so now is the time to start making your plans for the upcoming season. We are always available, and ready to talk to you about the market outlook and all of our listings. Hope to see you in our beautiful corner of Lake of the Woods this spring.working
Flying into Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls
If you are thinking about flying into our area of Lake of the Woods, there is a 3665 foot paved airstrip in Nestor Falls. Here is the link to all of the information on the airport: Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls Airport.working
Hard to believe that the summer of 2012 has come and gone. It has been another great summer on Lake of the Woods with the sunny days seeming to stretch on forever. It seems to have been a busy summer for many of the local businesses in Sioux Narrows, Nestor Falls and Morson and we hope to build on this momentum going into the fall of 2012 and then into 2013. Bruce and I are always available to discuss the local market, your property or any of our listings.working
Lake of the Woods Bald Eagles
One of the most exhilarating wildlife encounters you can have on Lake of the Woods is with a Bald Eagle. Often seen from a distance, once you have had the chance to see one up close, you will realize how big and magnificent these birds are. I recently had the pleasure of meeting a great photographer who has been able to capture this magnificence with some stunning photographs. Best of all he has posted them for all to see and enjoy: Eagles of Lake of the Woods
Just another reason to love Lake of the Woods.
