After spending my summers for over seventy years on a beautiful Canadian lake, I was forced to sell my property due to my advanced age and the health of my wife. Although the sale was an emotional roller coaster for us Jake and Bruce Bennett were so patient, kind, caring, and competent that my wife and I were able to complete the transaction with the least amount of emotional stress possible. I would recommend their company, Northwoods Realty, to anyone seeking to buy or sell property in the Sioux Narrows area. I found the agency to be very professional, extremely competent, and a real pleasure to do business with under the circumstances. - Randle and Virginia Dennison, Chesterfield, MO

My wife and I started looking for a cottage in the lake of the woods, Sioux Narrows area about 3 summers ago. We had camped in the area for over 20yrs and figured we had arrived at the point in our lives where we could step up into a cottage. We knew we wanted one but not really sure of where to even start. We walked into Northwoods Realty office in Sioux Narrows very unacquainted with the whole cottage idea and not having very much understanding of the ins and outs of even owning one. Right from the get-go, Bruce from Northwoods was very accommodating and patient with our inquiries about becoming cottage owners and helped us tremendously becoming familiar with how the water, septic systems differ from place to place and how we should compare the cottages from one to another. The process took us over 3 summers to find what we were looking for and each summer Bruce kept us up to date on what had become available and what fit our requirements for our dream cottage. The entire time Br

Its no secret Jake and Bruce know Lake of the Woods the best out of any realtor in the area. Jake was able to sell our property with his deep knowledge of off-grid properties. Jake ferried the prospective buyers back and forth from the island for viewings. - Michelle and Andy - Morson

I recently sold a unique remote cottage property through Northwoods Realty. It was on the market for a year and a half because it is only reachable by boat or snowmobile and 10+ miles from the mainland. So, prospective buyers would primarily be those interested in an idyllic cabin in the wilderness. The realty firm did a wonderful job of marketing. The photo collection and description of the property on the website were impressive and accurate. Interested buyers came from far distant places and found the property by searching websites.
Bruce and Jake have been great to work with. They have been professional and helpful at every turn. They communicated with me frequently with updates. I didn’t have to chase them for it. They take great pride in their business and in its success. I would highly recommend listing or buying through Northwoods Realty.

Bruce and Jake, We would like to express our thanks and appreciation for your assistance and guidance in the purchase of the island property. It was apparent to us from our first communication that you would sincerely work to help us accomplish this dream. We always felt comfortable with the details and complexities of purchasing this property outside of the USA. Your frequent emails and phone calls kept us updated and informed of the progress and next steps along the way. We also loved the “Ice Reports” through the winter months. All in all, this has been a wonderful experience and we are thankful that God has allowed us to steward this gorgeous piece of nature for the foreseeable future. Our hope is that several more generations will be able to enjoy the island.
We look forward to a long friendship with you both!

Hard to capture the beauty of our Lake of the Woods shorelines, but here is an attempt from a few days ago. The bearberry growing around the juniper ranged in colour from golden yellow to a dark red. Mostly jack pine trees further up.

The lake has opened up completely around the Sioux Narrows area! Looking forward to getting back in the boat. Here are a few photos from over the last weekend when the ice was going out.
