"All are welcome here." We love sharing our beautiful space with you. There are forty acres with woods, trails, meadows, ponds and a creek. It is peaceful and private. Each cabin has its own special ambiance. Each space has comes with a toilet, is bug-proof, and has various levels of cooking facilities. We will help you with suggestions of things to do and see in the area if you want us to. Please read all this and through each site's description before you "instant book." It helps us to know your ETA in advance and to update us so that we can plan our own day as well! Once you are in the area send us a message just before your arrival so we can meet you and set you up properly! When you come into our driveway you will see our house and barn. One of us will meet you and take you down to your site. -We ask that people check in before ten at night your first evening, so as not to disturb other guests... ;) It is very difficult to find your way in the dark. Thanks! We raised kids and hosted international students here, and always enjoy meeting other travelers. We are now retired but still traveling and exploring. While living and teaching internationally we looked for adventure, staying in a wide range of hostels in developing countries around the globe. We have enjoyed staying in everything from bamboo long-houses in Borneo and Thailand to adobe shelters in the Andes to rondavel huts in South Africa. There are free range chickens and a friendly farm dog here, and there are sometimes dogs staying at the other two cabins. There are also all kinds of wildlife in the area, so we require that dogs be supervised and leashed, for their safety and the safety of our chickens and our wild animal neighbors. :) Quiet hours are dusk to 7am. If you choose to bring a dog, we want you to consider your dog's inclination for barking. We keep the peace and quiet of all of our guests in mind. We hope that you (and your pet) will have fun at our northern Minnesota retreat. Burnell and Ann enjoy having company, and hearing about your travels and adventures (if you feel like sharing) and want you to feel safe and secure. All people are welcome here, as long as you follow our reasonable rules! PLEASE read through recommendations (number of people and animals per space) for each site before you choose: DRAGON LOFT has one double bed in a loft with a ladder. Great for 1-2 people. Very little extra sleeping space except for a dog bed or kennel below the loft. A third person would have to bring an air mattress or cot and sleeping bag. The BIG DIPPER can hold two people and possibly one dog, or one extra person, but it is a pinch to have more than just the two people! RAVEN WATCH cabin is comfortable for up to four people (two full size beds) but dogs not recommended if there are four people in the cabin. Number of pets are limited. No animals are ever allowed on human beds. Bring your kennel or dog bed. NEVER leave a dog alone at the site while you are out and about. No firearms, off-roading, fireworks, or other items or activities deemed to be dangerous by the hosts. No unregistered guests. We want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable, so ASK us if you have questions before you "instant book." If you have a couple of extra people or need more elbow room, ask us about a space for your tent that you can set up next to the cabin site. There is an extra charge of $15/person above the max per site.

Lovely dog-friendly weekend getaway
Ann was a thoughtful and accommodating host, and our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed the rustic setting, the just-right cabin amenities, the charming nature trail on the property, and Ann’s helpful suggestions on where to hike nearby!

Very cool spot. The boat is located right beside a little pond which our dog and theirs went swimming in.

Relaxing, cozy, and very comfortable. Superb hospitality. We enjoyed watching the pond wildlife, especially the turtles. Vast views of the night sky. Daytime outdoor temps were on the warm side during our stay and the shaded cabin remained nice and cool with lots of windows to let the breeze pass through.

My boyfriend and I had a really relaxing stay at Ann’s Dragon Loft; it’s a cozy and private spot on a beautiful property. Ann very kindly accommodated our later evening arrival and provided us all we needed. Perfect spot for couples!

This place was so fun! Chickens, the friendly dog Daisy, late night monopoly games by the woodfire and Ann let us pick raspberries from her garden. ... my 14 year old niece and nephew were obsessed!

Had a great time in the Big Dipper! Everything I needed for a fire and a comfortable nights stay were there- even some books and a night light. Also, the bonus companionship of the owner’s friendly dog!

We loved staying at the Dragon Loft - it was so nice to use the propane grill (plus pan) in the morning to make our breakfast, and the fire pit at night to make our dinner - Ann was even nice enough to teach us how to start a fire. Daisy, the farm dog, was the best part of our trip and played fetch with us. The actual loft was cozy, and stayed at the perfect temperature despite warm days and cool nights. Ann was very helpful and very responsive when texting, and even gave us muffins that she had extra of. The location was great as it was an easy 30 minute drive to Duluth and an even closer drive to hiking. Would 10/10 recommend, and will be back!

Beautiful property near North Shore
My two friends and I absolutely loved our stay here! Ann was so kind to us and the cabin was a perfect launch pad for our hike the next day on the Superior Hiking Trail. Beautiful property and landscape, so much attention to detail inside the cabin itself, and generally everything we needed for a great night! Next time we’ll need to stay for longer. Highly recommend!

BIG hugs and thank you to Ann & Burnell, oh, and Daisy the best dog ever. We rented both cabins for our family. Which is better? Do you like the cool view of the pond or the summer lightening sunset view over the meadow. Both are outstanding! The cabins are thoughtfully appointed. The hosts are generous and creative people who make you feel truly welcome to enjoy an adventure. We are already planning a return visit. with gratitude, Colleen, Marty, Patrick, Sofia and Kata

HOW can I tell you about Ann & Burnell's Woods and Meadows Farm? It is peaceful. We stayed in the cabin by the pond and the cabin at the top of a rolling meadow. Both were so thoughtfully appointed, cozy and comfortable. Did I mention the sun rise through one stained glass window and sets above the bed through another stained glass window? Ann & Burnell are the best hosts ever with stories, recommendations and open to any questions. By the end of our stay, we were planning our next visit.

Glamping as a new family
It was very peaceful staying at Raven Watch next to the pond. We got to hear the rubber band frogs at night. They have some nice walking trails nearby as well. The Hosts are very attentive to guests' needs. You still get the camping experience somewhat from the hauled water and composting toilet inside. We used a cooler for our cold items. Most of our stay was cloudy outside which made for less solar power. We decided to unplug the mini fridge to conserve energy for the lights and use of the outlets instead. We stayed here with our 2-month-old baby on our first trip as a family. We packed our fold up bassinet. Our house also helped accommodate us with keeping breast milk frozen and having plenty of water available. We really enjoyed our stay!

How lucky were we to stumble upon this little gem?! Rolled in last minute for one night. Ann was a friendly, helpful host. The little boat was so cute. The space was set up perfectly. A bathroom in the back of an old VW bug? Yes please!

Surrounded by Nature
We had a lovely time staying at the Big Dipper. It was the perfect space for my husband, teenage daughter, and myself. We all slept very comfortably in the boat. We had a great time sitting on the dock, listening to the nature sounds, sitting by our campfire, and playing fetch with the farm dog Daisy. We would highly recommend staying at the Big Dipper. We'll be back!

Ann was the consummate host and her property and cabin were one-of-a-kind and beautiful. I wasn’t able to make full use of the fire pit, trails, etc. as I arrived late and had to leave early the following morning for a race in Duluth and plan to return to explore the property and area. Would highly recommend.

The farm is a peaceful oasis. Ann and Burnell, and Daisy the resident dog, were so friendly and welcoming. The boat is not the most typical lodging, but it was all the more charming for it. The sleeping surface was both level and comfortable, which made for a wonderful night's sleep. We fell asleep to the sound of frogs and woke to songbirds and woodpeckers eagely looking for a snack. The resident chickens were also beautiful, and their eggs made for a great breakfast ahead of a day of riding along the south shore of Lake Superior. We would definitely recommend and hope to stay there again.

Unique camping experience!
This place was awesome! Wonderful and helpful hosts, cute camp site on really nice land. The actual boat/sleep area is pretty rustic but clean and comfortable, and the screens/netting were great for keeping out bugs. The covered cooking area was convenient and they even provide clean water and water disposal for dishes. Their super friendly dog Daisy spent a lot of time around, which was super fun. There were 2 other cabins for rent near the boat, but plenty of space/privacy for each rental. Overall, really great experience and I encourage others to check it out! Hosts, thanks for sharing your lovely land!

Beautiful view inside and out!
What an amazing spot to stay at for the weekend. The cabin was so cute and eclectic and came with so many little necessities like coffee, spices, and paper towels. There are also a lot of books to choose from. The loft is so adorable with lights overhanging the bed, and the swinging chair is such a fun spot to sit in. Wonderful hosts and a wonderful view from the front deck!
