92 Whitefish Bay Island 5, Sioux Narrows$825,000
SOLD - A perfect island location for those who value privacy and convenience. Enjoy island life on this 4.55-acre property located just west of the Sioux Narrows bridge on Whitefish Bay, Lake of the Woods. The elevated cabin site creates a private oasis with panoramic views. The historic log cabins are located in an inviting, parklike setting among large red and white pines. The grounds are well kept and all of the log cabins are in remarkably good condition as they have all been recently re-finished.
The 4.55-acre property makes up the entire north end of the island which is about 12 acres in size. Most of the remainder of the island is Crown Land with one other cabin property on the south-east end of the island. Many good viewpoints from the 1,500 feet of shoreline, but the best one is on the terraced lookout in front of the cabins. From here there is a view over Fire Island Narrows and an outstanding place to watch the sunset.
Located within a short distance of each other there are five cabins, a workshop, a garden shed, boathouse and a boat port with docking and track lift to the cabin area.
