What are some great things about your city?: One of the many things which a new owner will enjoy are a path bike and walking trails very nearby the home. The main part of town is an easy walk along the lake. Every year there is a chainsaw competition which is fun for the entire family. Tennis courts are a short walk away. Deep Portage Nature Reserve is yet another oasis for nature lovers. Walking and ski trails as well as educational activities and the famous Deep Portage rendezvous in January is yet another exciting event Back to Hack is a winter event in the heart of Hackensack which draws the community together in January for a large city campfire. There is also a 4 screen movie theater within a mile of the home. This is great for those rainy cabin days in the spring and cold wintry days.
What restaurants are nearby?: There are several great restaurants within walking distance. There are pizza places, steak houses and even a Thai eat in or take out.
What grocery stores or nearby shopping is there?: There is one main market less than a 10 min walk from your new home. They are locally owned and support the local community. There is a local co-op with has an amazing selection of spices and cheeses. The local shops and BBQ hut and Ice cream shoppe all come to life in the summer months.
What do you do for interests and hobbies near the property?: We love to take the kids on the bike trails and walk the dog to the main part of town.
