Zen-like getaway for 1 – 4 people provides a retreat from life's busyness. Big yard, deck with gas grill, and wood-stocked fire pit invite outdoor dining and luxuriating.
In cooler months, inspirational books invite quiet reflection and provide a spiritual kickstart—and the calm that encourages visits by resident turkeys or deer. Lay your own tracks in one of two park cross-country ski trails a stone's-throw away.
On warmer days, walk or bike a few blocks to beautiful Lake Phalen and surrounding regional park from which two major hiking and biking trails extend north-south and east-west. (Two bikes available for your use.) Buy bait from the nearby gas station, rent a rowboat, and score some walleye, northern pike, bass, crappie or sunfish. Both lakeside and private tree-surrounded picnic sites beckon with historic oaks and beautiful new pavilions.
For the "enlightenment" which only little white balls on big grassy expanses can ignite: neighboring Keller Golf Course with its historic course and PGA clubhouse pics (it was a regular stop on the PGA tour for decades) will challenge and delight, 2 other courses less than 2 miles away provide 'backup'.
My bright, comfy kitchen with its whole foods cookbooks and organic cooking staples provides the essentials for quality cooking (and eating) and is the heart of a arty-quirky-cabin-themed home with its collection of interesting antiques and artifacts.
Nearby Phalen beach will give splashy relief from meditative 'seeking'.
