Location Details

'The Bailey House' is ideally located steps from the crystal clear waters of Pine Mountain Lake. While the home has a secluded feel, it's near great options for dining like Willard Saloon and Eatery, and the Corner Store and Restaurant.

You certainly won't have to travel far for days of fun during your stay in Backus! Just 1 block away you'll find a public boat launch and Rocky Dock park with a playground, picnic area, and swimming beach.

Rent a boat and spend the day on the lake fishing for walleye, bass, northern pike, and panfish on the 1,612-acre lake. The kids in your group will like swimming in the water while you grill hamburgers at the picnic area!

The Paul Bunyan Trail and Rest stop is a half block from the house and offers 100 miles of paved hiking, biking, rollerblading, and snowmobile trails.

  • Wonderful place with a few issues


    The house was very interesting and fun. Family had a great time. Fire pit was great. Kitchen is small with very little work space so that made it difficult to cook for a large group. The house could do with a deep clean. Very dusty and animal hair pretty much everywhere.

  • Stepping Back in Time


    This beautiful OLD mansion was exactly as described, it needs summer pictures, and the lake and a beautiful park are right out the door. We celebrated my moms 80th Birthday.

  • Large but a few problems


    It is a very large house in a nice location for a family. A small but sandy beach and playground is only a few minutes walk away. Most of the furniture was old and uncomfortable and the kitchen was small. The house was also not very clean. Despite these issues we enjoyed our family weekend.
