Overview

Photos and Description of the Ogema vacation cabin rental

1 Bedroom Main Floor, Loft with Bed & Lakeview, 1 Bath

Here Up North, we know about winter. How to get cozy, enjoy good company, and, of course, how to deeply appreciate the downy white blanket of snow that envelops us for several months of the year.

With our winter smarts and fondness for the season, we created what we think is the ideal wintertime getaway here at Strawberry Lake Cabin.

Built in 2013 by local Minnesota craftsmen, our cabin’s floors boast radiant heat (great for defrosting your toes after a snowy hike), its comfy indoor spaces are great for long conversations and warm drinks, and its brand-new kitchen encourages you to prepare some snowed-in comfort food together.

Not to mention the world of winter activities waiting just outside the cabin. Watch thick snowflakes drift to the snow-blanketed ground and frozen lake through the prism of the cabin’s cathedral windows, which reach from the living area to the lofted bedroom. Then venture out to explore the glittering, snowbound landscape for yourself!

A RETREAT FOR COUPLES, FRIENDS & FAMILIES

Couples love it here at our Strawberry Lake Cabin—no matter the season.

Experience the easy romance of tucking into nature together and shaking off the stresses of everyday life. From the cozy, lofted bedroom, views of an unpolluted Minnesota sky full of stars will lull you into a deep sleep, and a winter wonderland will greet you in the morning.

When you and your sweetheart are ready to venture out, a whole slew of winter activities await. From ice fishing, to traversing 250 miles of snowmobiling trails, to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing across beautiful landscapes…including at lovely Pine Lake in the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge, just 3 miles from the cabin, or at the winter-sports haven Maplelag Resort, located 6 miles away.

Friends’ getaways of two to four people—complimented by a bottle of Minnesota wine, maybe?—find a wonderful setting here, as well.

And families find a home-away-from home at Strawberry Lake Cabin. We have a highchair, a baby crib, and a washer/dryer for warm, fresh clothes for everyone mid-week.

If the conditions are just right, Strawberry Lake will offer up one of winter’s classic treats--ice-skating! If it’s cold outside, but not buried in snow, you can hit the ice, and afterward, build a bonfire in the outdoor fire-pit and sip hot chocolate beside the warming flames. Unfortunately, our fickle winters don’t always allow for this, but keep an eye on the lake if you visit to see if it’s a possibility!

MAKE NEW MEMORIES WITH US

There’s a timeless quality to Strawberry Lake and Northern Minnesota. As the setting for many of my own happy childhood memories (and the place where I proposed to my wife), the woods and lakes Up North hold a special place in my heart. I love being able to share the magic of this place with others—at a cabin built by people who live here in the area, too. We’ve decorated the house with items that mean a lot to us, collected locally and around the world.

We’d love to have you here at our version of paradise in Strawberry Lake!

Strawberry Lake's pristine water clarity makes it a premiere destination for swimming, boating and fishing. This spring-fed lake provides clean, clear water with 12-15 foot visibility to the lake bottom.

Consider a dawn or dusk trail bike or car ride to nearby Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge; then, walk, run or ride the miles of backwoods trails to view the exceptional array of wildlife - Bald Eagle, Nesting Osprey, Trumpeter Swans, perhaps even a Woodcock or Gray Wolf...all of which we've seen in the refuge, and so many more wildlife viewing wonders.

During the Winter months, Tamarac offers more hiking and wildlife watching on cross-country skis, snowshoes, boots or by car.

Itasca State Park (headwaters of the Mississippi River) is 42 miles from Strawberry Lake Cabin - a lovely 53 minute drive.

Pilots and passengers are welcome - Strawberry Lake is a float plane accessible lake.
