Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Enjoy blissful solitude tucked into the woods at the end of the road, just 15 minutes away from the heart of downtown Ely. Practice ultimate social distancing at our rustic Northwoods log cabin. Enjoy hiking, mountain biking, star gazing (no light pollution!), toasting marshmallows over the campfire, and unplugging in nature.

The space
This hand built log cabin is 572 sq feet (plus a loft) and “off the grid.” It features 6 large solar panels for electricity.

Enjoy off grid amenities with your "glamping" experience.

The kitchen features a double burner propane cooktop, a toaster, a mini fridge that runs on solar power, a copper tea kettle and a pour over coffee maker. Brew yourself a fresh cup of tea or locally roasted coffee and watch the sunrise from the loft!

All three queen size beds are located upstairs in the loft. Guests with limited mobility should keep this in mind. The sleeping arrangements are only ideal for close friends and family. Leave your snoring friends at home ;)

You’ll feel relaxed and renewed during your stay at this eco-conscious Northwoods log cabin retreat. This is a rustic, off-the-grid, glamping experience. We encourage guests to enjoy the time offline, and know that the amenities are different than what you might be used to. It's a cabin in the woods - you may see critters (inside or out)!

The solar panels and batteries have limited capacity. Since solar powers our water pump, water is not unlimited. Guests must conserve water during their stay.

This is a special spot; come with realistic expectations and be ready to enjoy the wilderness!

Where you’ll be

Ely, Minnesota, United States

The cabin is just a few minutes off of the highway, and very easy to access, yet offers plenty of privacy on 40 wooded acres. The cabin is just a few miles away from two gorgeous state parks: Bear Head and Vermillion with miles of beautiful paved trails and a public swimming beach. There is public river and lake access for those who want to canoe or paddle board on Mud Lake or on Lake Vermillion.

We live in the Twin Cities, but Addie was born and raised in Ely, so she has plenty of local recommendations to share! We love the peace and quiet of the Northwoods and go to Ely every chance we get. We bought our dream cabin in 2020 and have enjoyed fixing it up and making it our home away from home. We hope you love it too!
