Perfect little getaway in the woods. Loved watching the wildlife rotate through the field throughout the day. Banning Park nearby had great hiking. The little cabin was well kept and comfortable for our weekend stay. Would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back in the future!

Such a beautiful property and a very nice little cabin. Enjoyed the view and watching the deer. Got to explore a few of the state parks near by too. Would definitely stay here again.

Late winter getaway--with dog

What a welcoming space!

We enjoyed a late winter visit with plenty of snowshoeing, lots of deer sign (though only 1 sighting) and a wonderful pair of trumpeter swans. One of us even was able to use a mobile hot spot in order to Zoom on a laptop for a 5 hour class. Nothing like gazing out over a beautiful meadow from a cozy reading nook to rest the eyes.

The terrific use of repurposed wood throughout the cabin showed off great details and the designer’s ingenuity. The heat exchanger worked perfectly and kept us at a comfortable temp even at our preferred lower setting. Our dog had a terrific time wandering the grounds with us and snored the night away ☺

The toilet glitch was attended to promptly – nice they had a backup outhouse though!

We look forward to renting another day and exploring that vinyl album collection!

Perfect solo creative retreat

I came to Bundo's Cabin for 5 days to embark on a solo creative retreat. I've never done a solo trip before, so I was apprehensive. But, Bundo's cabin provided everything I needed to feel cozy, safe, and warm. It quickly became a refuge, a magical place that helped unlock years of creative blockage. I loved every simple detail: the stocked kitchen, the Bluetooth speaker, the record player, the game chest, the sweet decor, and the lack of wi-fi.

In short, Bundo's cabin is perfect for folks who want to disconnect and find some peace!

Thank you to Jon for being a responsive, helpful, and generous host and curating such a wonderful place. I hope to be back soon!

P.S. For those wondering, I had decent cellphone service with Verizon. The driveway was manageable for my little sedan, it was well-plowed and there weren't any ruts. It might be a little difficult in mud season without a sport vehicle. There isn't a microwave. There is a small feezer. There are lots of outlets and the heating worked great. In regards to accessbility, there is a loft bedroom only accessible by ladder, though the main level couch folds down into a bed, and there is a step to the front door!

Absolutely amazing time!! We had such a fun and relaxing weekend at bundos cabin! We were looking for a getaway and boy did we get it! We brought our 2 dogs and had a great time relaxing and playing games in the cabin and an even better time snowshoeing and exploring the land! We will definitely be returning!

Thank you!!

Beautiful property and everything in the cabin was thoughtful and well-stocked. We enjoyed snowshoeing around the DNR land to the north and cozying up in the cabin listening to the record collection. Looking forward to visiting again.

I brought my two teen boys and our dog here for a little escape between Christmas and New Years - we loved every minute of it and I can’t wait to find another time to come back. The cabin is both charming and functional. It’s clear that a lot of thought went into every detail. I wasn’t expecting the record player, and it ended up being our favorite part of the trip! I felt nostalgic while my teenagers marveled at the “ancient technology” and were thrilled to each take a turn picking out and playing a record for the very first time. :) Pup loved playing in and exploring the unlimited snow and fields and woods. 10/10 would recommend - in fact I’ve got at least 3 friends checking on dates!

The outdoor bathroom is practically touching the back wall of the cabin (very short walk around the cabin) and is very clean. Chilly outside, cozy warm inside Great selection of records! Highlight of the stay 🥰
