Black Fox Classics: Spring Landscaping

It's getting warmer on Lake of the Woods, and soon it'll be time to leave the indoors behind. When you do, it's essential to make sure your lot is primed to be your new favorite hangout spot. One affordable (and indispensable) addition to any Lake of the Woods home is a dead simple lakeside fire pit.

For your dollar, a fire pit may be one of the best investments you can make in your cabin. With a little bit of landscaping work, you can transform an empty corner of your lot into one of the most popular spots on your property.
 
 
This particular fire pit also works double duty, turning some uneven terrain into a landing on the way down to the waterline. This formerly ignored patch of land is now the perfect place to hang out by the fire with a drink and take in the lake.

Cabin For Sale, Ready For Spring!

With the May long weekend less than a month away, now is the time to get yourself into the cabin you've always dreamed of. Nearing completion on a magnificent Lake of the Woods adjacent waterfront lot, the Longbow Beach House could be the perfect cabin for you.



This four bedroom cabin is spread over 3 full storeys and boasts tons of room to entertain, but with a massive and private master suite that occupies its entire top floor, solitude is never too hard to find.



 
Located on Longbow Lake, this home has a light, airy aesthetic with a distinct retro nod and aside from the huge master suite, this classic update on the beach house style also has three fireplaces, a stunning, two-storey vaulted ceiling, and countless other high-end details.
