  • 100 acres
  • Sucker River
  • Trout fishing destination
  • 240 sq. ft. cabin
  • Rehabbed in 2012
  • Solar panels
  • Walking trail

Rare offering to own 100 acres on the prized Sucker River, a top trout fishing destination for anyone in the “know” about the area. With over 3,000 feet of frontage, a private trail system and a fantastic cabin grandfathered in just steps away from the river, this is a not to be missed property! Set amongst the pines, the cabin was completely overhauled in 2012 with big windows overlooking the river, a rustic kitchen, and lofted sleeping area, gorgeous woodwork, and metal roof. Solar panels offer power and there is an easement for a driveway or access can be obtained by a walking trail. Designed with conservation in mind, the property cannot be split or the structure further added upon, as it is in a conservation easement. This one of a kind property is truly a gem!

    Since the property cannot be split or the cabin added onto… this property is pretty worthless… with everything dictated by the government what you can or cannot do on your own property, while they tax the crap out of you. No Thanks.

    • Avatar INVSBLTY October 9, 2016, 3:36 pm

      Richard, I agree with you!

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 1:40 pm

        Even if you can’t add onto it, it’s still a lovely little spot for those who want something tiny 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

        • Avatar Lannette October 10, 2016, 4:30 pm

          Agreed, for someone looking for a “get away from it all” second home who likes to “rough it” this property could be just the ticket.

    • Avatar Harmony October 9, 2016, 7:54 pm

      I’m no expert, but I think a conservation easement means the owners made some money on it… whether it gets paid in one lump sum or installments over time, I have no idea. Might be worth checking into, though, if someone’s at all interested…. maybe “not being able to do anything to it” could be profitable. With that said, I don’t understand how there’s no bathroom or outhouse 🙁

      • Avatar alice h October 11, 2016, 1:45 pm

        Can’t really tell from the ad but it’s possible you might be able to build other structures elsewhere on the property if the conservation easement is only for a certain distance from the river and not the whole property. I would have thought they’d mention the possibility if it exists though.

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 12, 2016, 6:23 am

          Ya I would definitely contact them and ask before purchasing! — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar Denise January 18, 2017, 9:06 am

        There is no bathroom or outhouse because they were not allowed to add on to the structure or build another building.

        • Avatar Sheila Harvey March 1, 2018, 4:05 am

          But they did totally redo the “cabin” which means they could have added a bathroom, even a compost toilet would work. I mean who’s going to go out in the snow in 3 degrees & pee at night in the woods?
          The “rustic kitchen “ is nothing but a counter with a sink.
          They changed the outside of the cabin they had to use the same footprint of the original I’m assuming, doesn’t say you can’t put in a way to cook & use the bathroom

    • Avatar Denise January 18, 2017, 9:03 am

      I agree also.

  • Avatar Katen Gibson October 9, 2016, 2:35 pm

    What are the taxes for this property? What does grandfathered mean for this home and property?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 11, 2016, 8:14 am

      I think you’d have to ask the sellers about taxes/grandfathering — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar alice h October 11, 2016, 1:37 pm

        Usually grandfathering means if something destroys the cabin you can’t replace it. You also can’t change the footprint, though you can fix the place up.

  • Avatar Mary October 9, 2016, 3:11 pm

    Where are the appliances for the kitchen? Frig, stove and oven? Where are the photos of the bathroom? $133? Sorry….I would expect more in a tiny house for that price. All the land is nice but really?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 11, 2016, 8:20 am

      It’s the cost for land, but I think it is off-grid so no appliances. Although you should ask the sellers to check! — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar Paula May 3, 2017, 1:39 am

        Off the grid does not mean no appliances. It just means you generate your own power. We have solar panels for the little stuff, a generator for big stuff, a propane stove and fridge, solar water heaters, coils in the wood heater, etc. All the amenities. Just labor intensive.

  • Avatar Mary October 9, 2016, 3:12 pm

    Where are the appliances for the kitchen. Where are pics of the rest of the structure? Can’t add on? I would expect more of a tiny home despite the acreage.

  • Avatar KALG October 9, 2016, 3:56 pm

    Well? Water? Bathroom? Since there is no way to improve the property, the is a useless investment. I get more out of a canvas tent. Someone is trying to unload it before the taxes become overwhelming.

  • Avatar Lannette October 9, 2016, 4:18 pm

    Also there doesn’t seem to be a bathroom or outhouse and I imagine you would be prohibited from building one.

    The cabin is lovely as are the surroundings.

    I wonder why a driveway wasn’t put in seeing as there is an easement? I’m not very savvy about these things.

    • Avatar Hawk October 9, 2016, 5:00 pm

      Driveway must mean its not ffar from a road! Can’t do anything & no bathroom? = nope!

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 1:42 pm

        There is an outhouse 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Dominick Bundy October 9, 2016, 5:18 pm

    Love all the brightness windows and openness. needs a bathroom

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 1:43 pm

      I do prefer one! 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar DAVID S BLAND October 9, 2016, 6:30 pm

    No stove or refrigerator either

  • Avatar Anne October 9, 2016, 9:19 pm

    Not only is there no bathroom, the “rustic kitchen” does not seem to have a stove or even room for a fridge. Can’t say that would appeal to me even if I only used it on weekends, let alone try and live there permanently. I’d rather have an RV–no property tax, all the comforts of home, and for that price–a pretty nice one at that!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 1:44 pm

      I can understand 🙂 It’s mostly for the land, I’m sure. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Elle October 10, 2016, 2:10 am

    That’s a shame about the restrictions but this is a pretty little home and the property is breathtaking

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 1:44 pm

      I agree 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Tisha Emery October 10, 2016, 5:29 am

    I have to agree with the previous comments.
    Wonderful property, beautiful views. Love that they building has been updated and looks fantastic,
    BUT without a bathroom and no possibility of being able to add one – nope. Also no real means of a kitchen not even a mini fridge or cooking area, again nope.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 11, 2016, 8:22 am

      It is a tough situation! — Tiny House Talk Team

    • Avatar Tisha E October 11, 2016, 8:45 am

      I do see a sink in the kitchen area but the funniest part is I do not see any form of a faucet or even any tap levers! So, maybe there is some form of water supply but who really knows.
      I water catchment system could be “upgraded” into the home to allow water for washing and flushing, simply by adding in a gutter and cistern system to the roofline of the cottage.
      As I believe Natalie said – set up a couple of walls for privacy and maybe use a composting toilet, I drain for wash/shower water, but of course that could all be done internally so in actual fact you are not “adding-on” just modest upgrades. mmm.

  • Avatar kevin October 10, 2016, 10:26 am

    why make updates but not install a bathroom or kitchen? that loft is really scary too.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 1:45 pm

      I think it’s likely a power/plumbing issue. If it’s conservation land they may not allow for those things. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Beach Gal October 10, 2016, 3:58 pm

    No kitchen appliances, no indoor bath, no improvements allowed, just pay taxes.. Hence the name, “Sucker River”….

  • Avatar Pam October 10, 2016, 6:58 pm

    This is really a beautiful location. Since there is apparently electricity, a mini-fridge could be hooked up, along with a hot plate and toaster oven/microwave. I’d also put up a couple of walls in the corner and get a compostable toilet. Put shades on the windows for privacy in that corner. Alas, there’s no running water! No shower or dishwashing, that’s a deal breaker for me.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 11, 2016, 8:23 am

      Ya that would be hard! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Neal October 12, 2016, 7:34 am

    I got all excited and then saw no “add on” and thought, pardon the language wth!! 100 acres and can’t do anything with it? Can’t pipe water to the place? Is this some kind of caretaker ordeal? Makes no sense to me to get a place so vast and not be allowed to add on any structures. I assume no chicken coop, no greenhouse no homestead ?? I was about to say sign me up but 100 acres that you cannot use to live is kind of worthless. A shame too because otherwise it’s all I could have dreamed for especially for my budget. Such a shame. If I’m misinterpreting this please let me know but it seems to be some caretaker of government land ordeal the way it has such restrictions. Such a shame as it looks beautiful! ?❤️

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 14, 2016, 6:59 am

      I know! It is a huge bummer. I would LOVE this piece of land if I could make it into a homestead. It’s my dream! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 13, 2016, 8:01 pm

    I was really pleased to see this deal at first, and with out proper investigation as to the easement to the land and how it is written, and how it is structured, this also could be a blooper of a deal…! Shame really but I do understand the need for reserved land for the ecosystem and that is equally important as finding a beautiful spot and settling on it…!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 14, 2016, 7:00 am

      So hard, huh? I want preserved land, but I also want a homestead 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Dory October 28, 2016, 8:12 pm

    I wonder if the “no add-on” rule could be overcome with a THOW or three (bathroom on wheels?) strategically placed.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 31, 2016, 10:10 am

      Not sure, but a great idea! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Janet December 15, 2016, 5:25 pm

    SOLD on 12/2/2016 for $120,000. Go to Estately http://www.estately.com/listings/info/6634-mcquade-rd and take a look at the views – outstanding. That being said, after I left Northern Ohio after college and moved south and west, I wouldn’t survive in the snow anymore! Yes, I’m a weenie……

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 16, 2016, 8:24 am

      Haha no you aren’t 🙂 I lived in Southern Michigan and I don’t want to return! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Sarah January 10, 2017, 5:21 pm

    Being from Minnesota, I have traveled extensively and been to Duluth many times. It’s a wonderful spot which I think can match just about anywhere for beauty. I love the North Shore. That being said, besides everything else previously mentioned, this is a COLD city! BRRR. I think it’s beautiful though. Especially love the outside with the rock/wood formation and the beautiful windows.

  • Avatar lsb January 11, 2017, 4:13 am

    Someone must have like it because it sold in 97 days

  • Avatar Kelly January 11, 2017, 1:32 pm

    Awesome property and excellent for a rustic weekend fishing cabin, but I wouldn’t spend one night there without an indoor toilet or running water.
    The lucky person who bought it is much more rugged than I am.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 12, 2017, 8:27 am

      Haha me too 🙂

  • Avatar Sarah J Vrieze January 22, 2017, 3:55 pm

    Wow! If I had a ton of money I swear I would have bought it! Such a beautiful area, Duluth is a fun city with a lot going on and right along Lake Superior (so it’s COLLLDDDDDDDD). Not for wimps!! hee hee

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 7:17 am

      So nice to hear good things about it! Thanks, Sarah.

  • Avatar Theresa Perdue December 29, 2017, 11:10 pm

    no solar power no water system at all. no toilet not even a compost one. this is one big nope for me. but it’s pretty
