wpe5.jpg (38030 bytes)In the 1930's Lawrence Oberg made a living trapping in Northern Minnesota.  Before he even thought of owning this piece of land on Echo Lake he had a trap line here.  It was on this very Point of land that he trapped a timber wolf that was 8 feet in length from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.  Everyone agreed that the name for their home should be Timber Wolf Point.

They never intended to have a resort.  In 1956 they cut the logs to build their own log cabin.  Just a place for them to get away.  They worked on the cabin during the summers from 1957-1959 with the help of Grandpa Oscar Oberg and their children, Larry, John, and Carolyn. 

Others wanted to enjoy this beautiful piece of land, so in 1960 they started renting out what is now known as the Voyageur Cabin.  They started as a canoe outfitter for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and the Voyageur was more of an overnight stop for people entering the BWCA.  In 1961 they started renting out the Viking and in 1962 the Echo.  In all there are six cabins today, which is in keeping with their goal of having a secluded peaceful get away.
