Newly updated cabin on Burntside Lake in Ely, MN. Burntside is one of Minnesota's premiere lakes, known for it's deep, clear water and direct access to the Boundary Waters (BWCAW). With over 7,000 acres of water, it offers everything you could want in a summer vacation rental: boating, canoeing, waterskiing, fishing, cliff diving and exploring any of the 200 uninhabited islands around the lake. Fishermen will love the countless eddies filled with walleye, bass, lake trout and northern pike.
The cabin is a quaint 1950's cottage situated just 30 feet from the clear, calm water. It's the perfect blend of an up north cabin, with many modern renovations, including a full kitchen, indoor plumbing, fireplace, outdoor firepit and room to comfortably sleep 8. The property has 8 acres of land, allowing for tons of privacy and hikes up the hill to build forts or just relax.
Other things to note
Bring your boat or rent one in Ely (we can get you connected to the rental places if you don't know them). The cabin is just a short drive from the public boat launch, and only 8 miles from downtown Ely.
- Well-behaved pets only - no pups on the furniture please.
I'm a Minnesota native, who traveled the world and lived on both coasts before coming back to MN for the long haul. My husband and I have four teenagers, who love to explore as much as we do.
Earlier this year, we purchased a lake cabin in northern Minnesota at the edge of the boundary waters. We think the peace and quiet of the outdoors (and spotty cell coverage) has already added years to our we spend as much free time there as we possibly can.
