Located just about 7 miles southwest of Walker. Vacation with your friends and family at our large lakehome, situated on a quiet bay of secluded Howard lake.

Enjoy the sounds of the many loons that call Howard lake home. Paddle the canoe or paddle bikes to explore all this secluded lake has to offer. There is no developed public access on this lake, so it is very quiet but we do have a place that you can launch your boat. With cabins on just a portion of the lake, you are sure to get the true 'up north' feel your after. We have ample parking for all your cars, trucks and trailers, level lakelot with plenty of shade and beautiful crystal clear water, home to many species of fish and even more loons.

This is our third year at your family-friendly home. We always have a great experience and this year was no exception. Lots of room for everyone - an important aspect for our growing family. We enjoyed the pontoon this year; the paddle board and paddle bikes; the diving dock; the fishing was the best ever (!!!); canoeing; biking and just plain strolling along the tree-lined roads. The garage converted to family space is a big hit for the young children with all the games, TV and lounge furniture. A big "THANK YOU" for everything you do to make our stay exceptional. One last "thank you" for the insect control that you utilize. I don't recall anyone with mosquito bites! Amazing for northern MN, and a factor when you want to do those fun evenings around the campfire.
This was our second year at Whispering Pines and our vacation was again awesome. Jeff added many new upgrades to improve on his already comfortable place. A new sectional in the great room was so nice and a new grill just to mention a few. The kiddos played at the beach and enjoyed swimming in a nice, sandy area. We did a lot of fishing right off the dock. It was also nice to just sit and enjoy the beautiful view by the fire pit This area is scenic beyond words. Jeff is such a great host. He called several times to make sure we were comfortable or to see if we needed anything. There was a storm while we were there and he checked in with us to make sure we were safe. It was a wonderful week. I highly recommend this property.
My family has stayed here, I believe four years in a row now...and we hope to stay for life. We typically have anywhere from 12-20 people, and there is ample everything for everyone. My dad likes to chill inside and watch TV. My mom and I use the water bikes every morning and enjoy the beautiful lake views and wild life. My brother and nephews fish, swim and play football off the docks. We rent the pontoon every year (which is always fully stocked with gas) and take a nice ride in the afternoons, toss out the anchor, and just chill. My youngest nephew enjoys the the kids game room (also, fully stocked). They guys play poker everynight, we have a ping pong tournament, and play foosball and Wi (hilarious). Jeff has an extra fridge in the garage which is great for our larger group. Huge washer and dryer are super helpful. The home is just perfetion. The BEST part though, is the owner Jeff. Our family has come to consider him a friend, he is such a great guy and fantastic family man. He is a promp as it gets, and does everything he can to make your stay more enjoyable. We honestly couldn't ask for anything more! BOOK ASAP!!!
Our family of 6 adults and 4 children spent 4 nights at this spectacular home. The weather was exceptionally cold so we weren’t outside as much as we had planned but with the large game room and a closet full of board games we found plenty to do inside. This home has a warm, friendly feel and Jeff, the owner, was always easily reachable with a phone call. We enjoyed our time so much that before we left, we booked another weekend to go back! I definitely give a 5-Star rating and would highly recommend it ! Tom and Deb
Thank you for another great year at your wonderfully accommodating home. We are a family of three generations and have been "growing" to fill up every inch of your spacious home and secondary living space over the garage. Our five couples and eight youngsters enjoyed the large living spaces, beach, water toys, fishing, bug-free outdoor area and well maintained, clean home. Due to the cooler weather this year, the children enjoyed stuffing all their toys into the upper loft for a hide-out and kept them busy for many hours. The owners/managers are awesome! Thank you for all you do to make our stay a wonderful experience.
