A unique, octagon, cedar log cabin, situated on 40 secluded wooded acres. A short hike over the Sucker River on a storybook foot bridge to a generous deck which surrounds the cabin.
You will need to be very physically fit to stay here. You must climb a steep ladder to the loft and do a 2ft step to get off the deck to the marshy land below.
The cabin has a main room which holds two sofas and an indoor fireplace. There are games, books, binoculars and a telescope available for guest use. To access the sleeping loft, climb a ladder. The sleeping loft holds a Sleep Number bed. Guests are welcome to use any spices, pantry items and cookware that are in the kitchen. There is no running water in the kitchen or bath. There may be well water in the blue/green jerry cans . You could use that for the sauna or washing dishes.
Guests need to bring their own potable water. We recommend 1 gallon of water per person each day spent at the cabin. We do usually have a small amount of water in water cooler containers which is from the local grocery, filtered water for you to use in a pinch if needed.
***the sauna DOES NOT get above 120 degrees in the winter, you’re welcome to try a winter sauna, but it’s will not be very hot at all****
***no running water***
***no shower, there is a sauna for a sauna bath***
***do not book this cabin if you need to charge any medical equipment***
***do not book this cabin if you can not do a 2ft step on and off the deck of the cabin to get down to the ground to build a sauna fire or bonfire. The land is a marsh and it shifts with the season so there are not steps secured to the deck****Check in is available anytime after 3 on your day of arrival. Check out is at 10am. Once you cross the bridge you will see the cabin. We have a cart or sled on the cabin side for you to bring your belongings across the bridge. Code is #### (we will provide on day of arrival)
You will need to bring drinking/cooking water and firewood with you. We recommend two bundles of firewood per day. Menards, Holiday and Whole Foods all sell it in Duluth. You’re welcome to collect kindling from fallen branches on the property.
After doing dishes please dump out the bucket that is outside of the cabin, opposite the sink, or it will freeze and your sink will back up. Do not flip the switch above the furnace, make sure it is “off". The compost toilet works great for bowel movements, but we do ask you to limit urination if ever possible. Please be careful by the sauna, there is some cabling that holds up our solar panel and the ground can be slippery.
Solar power is at its lowest during the Month of December/January/February. Please turn off any lights if not in use and be prepared to use flashlights if needed. It will be dark and cozy.
The sauna needs about 1 hour of a roaring fire to get warm. We typically build a ‘first’ fire and then use a long stick to shove it deep in the fire box and then build a second fire.

Off Grid Cabin
Definitely secluded and we throughly enjoyed the wood burning sauna. With that being said it is still not a far drive from duluth. We used this as base camp to explore the state parks on the north shore. This experience has me longing for longer and more secluded off grid adventures. Bring bug spray. I could see this being a whole different experience in the colder months. Much love. ✌️
