LAKE SALLIE, Minn. - Dan and Sandy Skolness have their lake home on the market for about $2.5 million.

Who are the potential buyers?


Someone looking for a family compound, said Dan Skolness.

That was one of the reasons the Skolnesses purchased their house on Lake Sallie near Detroit Lakes in 2007.

Since then, the home built on land that was once a resort has served as a place to entertain family and friends.
