Rich History. Grand Scale. Spectacular Beauty.
In 1892, pioneer Tom Hughes had his pick of virgin Minnesota waterfront to call home. While bushwhacking through the Minnesota Northwoods and the state's vast array of glacial lakes, Tom stumbled into a lake like no other--an aquamarine jewel called Siseebakwet (Ojibwe for 'Sugar'). Members of the local Ojibwe tribe, who inhabited a small sugar camp on the north side of the lake, told Tom the waters held magical powers. After going for a swim, he believed them. Thrilled at his discovery, Tom scouted the lake for several days until he finally found the grand, north shore tract that would later become known as Sugarcrest. As you view the pictures below, you'll see what Tom Hughes discovered over a century ago and why we are so excited to share this unique and historic property with you.

Privacy + Proximity to Sugar Lake Lodge.
So how close are we to Sugar Lake Lodge? Just two docks to the West. The pictures above should give you a good idea. At Sugarcrest, you have the best of both worlds: extreme privacy with 32 acres and an expansive forested buffer between you and the lodge but it's just a short car ride or wade in the water for 18 holes of golf and dinner at Otis' Bar and Grill.
