Beautiful cabin, we hope to return!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy and Jay's cabin exceeded all of our expectations. The cabin was clean, nicely furnished and came with a fully equipped kitchen. It is situated directly on the lake shore with an incredible view. We enjoyed canoeing, swimming and watching lake wildlife.

A perfect retreat for recharging! Overall we had a wonderful experience and hope to return.

Thank you Sandy and Jay!

Perfect cabin for a fall weekend up north!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect cabin for a fall weekend up north. Extremely picturesque, not to mention very clean and with modern updates. About an hour from highway 61. We hiked along the north shore during the day and relaxed on the porch and dock in the late afternoon. And the canoe was great for early mornings on the lake - so peaceful. Not a lot of space to spare inside, but it was great for two. Highly recommend!

Great views, Cabin super nice....but needs some improvements to shower

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is small, but was perfect for our family of 4. The cabin is very nice, clean, modern and you can't beat the view. You are right on the water. We enjoyed watching a family of ducks, two eagles and loons on the lake during our visit. The kitchenette is well stocked with kitchenware, which is so helpful when traveling. No internet or TV reception, but our family didn't mind one bit. Enjoyed unplugging. The sauna wasn't working during our visit, which was disappointing. The only negative about this VRBO is the shower and lack of towels provided. I'm not a picky person, but I would recommend the shower to be improved. Not only was the pressure minimal, but you had to run the water for 5 minutes to get warm water and the water never got hot, so for this reason alone--I rated this VRBO 3 stars. If the shower was improved...definitely 4-5 star location.

Owner's Response: I apologize and I am sorry for the inconvenience with the sauna heater not working. We purchase a new sauna heater so we should be good. Also I adjusted the hot water heater so the water should be hot. Unfortunately we do have to wait for the hot water it does take a little time.

If it weren't for the fact that the town of Ely is such a nice place to visit, we would have had no reason to leave this perfect cabin. So close to the lake it felt like we were actually on it sometimes. Breath taking beauty and close to nature. Enjoyed hiking, fishing, and kayaking 😊. We will definitely visit again!!!

Beautiful location on Burntside & gracious hosts

  • 3 of 5

You must be prepared for a small all 1 room living space with no closet or room for luggage. Max indoor dining is 2 people. It takes quite a while to get hot water in the shower & there are no towels provided, only 1 dish towel & 1 dishcloth for 3 day stay. Very convenient dock & sauna. No tv or wireless reception but there is a DVD player with a few movies. Gas FP warms room up quickly.

Owner's Response: The cabin is small in the description it states it is an efficiency. The description is very detailed of what is provided. We added a dresser. We do have dining for 4 people. We are located in an area that the internet service provided is very slow.
