A Boundary Waters Experience.  Canoe and fish the Boundary Waters.

Cabin Overlooking Shagawa Lake

At the top of a rolling hill surrounded by 20 acres, sits a beautiful year-round one bedroom cabin. Built by one of Ely’s top craftsman, every need is met with rustic setting and a modern twist to a very comfortable cabin. The wall of windows brings in sunshine. Thunder rolls overhead during storms and snow falls softly outside in the winter. You are inside but it feels like you are one with the weather. Truly a romantic place to stay.


Lazy Dog Inn

The Lazy Dog Inn is a wonderful home decorated in the spirit where mid-century design meets a modern vibe. It is fun to browse and experience the tasteful art and endless detail that is in every room. This home fills the senses far more than a picture can depict. A bright and cheery kitchen welcomes you each morning. Two charming bedrooms a top the staircase feature cozy and comfortable full and queen beds. The open main floor combines living and dining areas. 


The Loony Bin

This cabin, affectionately known as The Loony Bin, was recently remodeled with the guests in mind. All new appliances, flooring, washer and dryer, walk-in shower, bedding and towels allow the guests to feel a little bit spoiled during their stay.  The cabin has two bedrooms. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to fix your meals at home.  The cabin has large windows that look out to the lake just 19 feet away. The view is wonderful in the spring, summer, winter or fall. Outside there is plenty of parking for boats, trailers, and trucks.


Trails End

This cabin is located on the shore of Garden Lake and its 100% Solar Powered. It is a year around cabin that is beautifully built, quiet, relaxing, and very secluded. Perfect for a couple looking for a very private romantic lakeside vacation or a small family wanting a taste of Canoe Country. No need to bring bottled water as a result of a 300+ foot well. The BWCA is accessible by water, and Garden Lake is a wonderful spring fed lake great for fishing. A large dock is great for your boat and you can fish off the dock to your hearts content.

The owner of this cabin is an artist. This home was designed by him and built with loving care.

Imagine yourself fixing meals with a roaring fire and snow falling just outside the windows.
