O’Dowd Island, located a mere 30 minutes from Minneapolis/St. Paul, offers a rare opportunity for seclusion and urban convenience with ever-changing seasons to accent the natural beauty of its 11.5 acres. The private island features a diverse terrain of undulating hills, sandy shores and a soaring hardwood forest. Wildlife ranging from deer and muskrats to the great blue heron and a variety of songbirds call O’Dowd Island home, while rustic trails traversing its topography offer a variety of stunning vantage points.

In the summertime, water enthusiasts will appreciate O’Dowd Lake’s 300 acres where water skiing, tubing and kayaking can all be easily accessed. Anglers flock to the pristine waters to catch a variety of fish, such as largemouth bass, Northern pike and yellow perch. The island’s deck provides the ideal location to enjoy the sunset or curl up with a good book. Cast a rod off the dock to reel in a quick dinner.

O’Dowd Island’s charming two-bedroom cottage can sleep six or more guests and its modern conveniences include washer/dryer, satellite TV and air-conditioning, as well as plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to gather with family and friends. Also included in the purchase is a 1.5-acre mainland peninsula lot, which provides private access to the island. Both the island and mainland lot offer additional building potential.

Named after the brothers who discovered it, O’Dowd Lake’s relatively shallow waters, inlets and coves brim with possibilities. When the seasons change so does the lake’s personality, as fiery foliage reflects off of the waters or ice crystals create a Midwestern winter wonderland unlike anywhere else in the world. The island, positioned idyllically at the lake’s epicenter, is an ideal way to immerse in the kaleidoscope of nature’s splendor and share its majesty with those closest to you.
