Enjoy blissful solitude tucked into the woods at the end of the road, just 15 minutes away from the heart of downtown Ely, the perfect COVID getaway for your quarantine pod. Practice ultimate social distancing at our rustic Northwoods log cabin. Enjoy hiking, mountain biking, star gazing (no light pollution!), toasting marshmallows over the campfire, and unplugging in nature.

The space
This hand built log cabin is 572 sq feet (plus a loft) and “off the grid.” It features 6 large solar panels for electricity.

Enjoy off grid amenities with your "glamping" experience. There is a composting toilet inside for your convenience, but we recommend using the outhouse as much as possible since the toilet has limited capacity.

The kitchen features a double burner propane cooktop, a mini fridge that runs on solar power, a copper tea kettle and french press. Brew yourself a fresh cup of tea or coffee and watch the sunrise from the loft!

All three queen size beds are located upstairs in the loft. Guests with limited mobility should keep this in mind. The sleeping arrangements are ideal sleeping for 3 couples, families or close friends. Leave your snoring friends at home ;)

You’ll feel relaxed and renewed during your stay at this eco-conscious Northwoods log cabin retreat. This is a rustic, off-the-grid, glamping experience. We encourage guests to enjoy the time offline, and know that the amenities are different than what you might be used to. It's a cabin in the woods - you may see mice or critters!

You will need to use caution and slowly walk down our steep handmade ladder stairs that lead to the sleeping loft.

This is a special spot - come with realistic expectations and be ready to enjoy the wilderness!

Guest access
Guests have access to 40 private acres for hiking and exploring! Pick fresh and local blueberries on the property. Fat tire bikes available for an extra fee.

Other things to note
Ely Log Cabin is pet friendly! The pet fee is $50. This helps cover the extra costs of cleaning and wear and tear. Please communicate with us prior to booking about bringing a pet. We ask that pets don’t go on the couch or beds to respect those with allergies.

The stairs to the loft are very steep and we encourage guests with small children or limited mobility to be mindful of this when booking.

There is no wifi (unplugging is encouraged!), but the cabin is close to a cell tower so most phones work well.

Location

Ely, Minnesota, United States

The cabin is just a few minutes off of the highway, and very easy to access, yet offers plenty of privacy on 40 wooded acres. The cabin is just 2 miles away from two gorgeous state parks: Bear Head and Vermillion with miles of beautiful paved trails and a public swimming beach. There is public river access for those who want to canoe or paddle board to Mud Lake. Additionally, public access to Lake Vermillion for those who own a boat.

We live in the Twin Cities, but Addie was born and raised in Ely, so she has plenty of local recommendations to share! We love the peace and quiet of the Northwoods and go to Ely every chance we get. We bought our dream cabin in 2020 and have enjoyed fixing it up and making it our home away from home. We hope you love it too!
