Overview

Photos and Description of the Ely vacation cabin rental

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, Not Specified Baths, (Sleeps 6)

These two small secluded islands are a perfect place for couples and families who desire a peaceful wilderness-like retreat on Burntside Lake. Within view of the Crab Lake portage into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, it provides an opportunity for those who love the simplicity of camping, and the quietude of the wilderness, but may desire the comforts of a very cozy cabin. Private and intentionally simple, Moccasin island allows you to unplug, connect with family and the north woods environment. It is located four miles from a public landing. Burntside Lake is one of the 5 designated “Valuable Resource Waters” in Minnesota. It is wonderfully clear and well populated with Lake Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, and Bass.

The cabin is located on the larger island and includes a kitchen, living room, and two bedrooms with two twin beds in each. The unfinished attic has two additional twin beds and makes a great hideout for kids. The cabin also has a large full width deck near the water’s edge, perfect for dining outside and watching loons, beaver, osprey and the occasional bald eagle.

A footbridge with a boathouse and deck connects the islands. Another deck is built out over the water and provides a great place for fishing and swimming and yoga. The smaller island has a screen house with a small deck that overlooks the water, a favorite sleeping spot for some visitors. The moonrise is magical and northern lights can be a bonus.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is within sight of the island. Two canoes are provided, and it is a short paddle to the BWCA if you wish to make a day trip.

The Island is rustic but comfortable. The lights, stove, oven, and refrigerator all operate on propane gas and there is no electricity or running water. The outhouse is tidy and a solar shower is available for washing. Narrow paved paths connect the cabin to the facilities and the boathouse.

You will likely settle in, unwind and prefer to stay put once you get there, however dining is available at Burntside Lodge – a scenic 15 minute trip by boat. The town of Ely is a lively community with many shops and restaurants. The Wolf Center, Bear Center and Ely Folk School are also worth visiting. Tower, located about 22 miles from Ely, offers tours of the old underground iron ore mines.

Rent is $1,150 per week from June through Labor Day. 50% at booking balance at arrival.

Bring your own boat and motor or call us for options.

*Sorry, but due to the islands’ fragile ecosystem, we are no longer taking pets.
