My husband Richard and I live on Gilstad Lake about 6 miles out of Blackduck MN. We have 20 acres of land and no close neighbors! Richard is retired from Blackduck Telephone, I work at Blackduck school and run concession stand, and Prom.

Home & location

We live in Blackduck, a quiet little town in northern MN. We live on Gilstad lake which is great for ice fishing or regular fishing in the summer, 4 wheeling and canoeing. You can watch fantastic sunsets over the beautiful tranquil lake

Sandra has a wonderful set up for furry and finny family in the north woods of Minnesota. Bear and I had a great time exploring the many paths to the lake

We are so grateful to Sandra and Richard for allowing us to be in their beautiful home. They went way out of their way to welcome us and provide facilities

I did my very first house sit since joining trusted house sitters, and I couldn't have sat for nicer people or had a better experience! Richard and Sandra
