Absolutely Superb!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Log Home and Hilltop cabins for our "familymoon", including Grandparents, Kids, friends. We had such a great week on Crane Lake, and enjoyed immensely the Log home and Hilltop cabin. Both places are really great and well-kept. Thanks Gary!

Great Lake Home!

  • 5 of 5
We had 10 total guys for a weekend fishing trip. The cabin was comfortable and had great outdoor living space, we never felt like we were on top of one another. The fishing was tuff that weekend but having a nice place to go back to made it all worth it. A couple of things you should know: 1) there is moderate boat and float plane traffic in front of the cabin; nothing that should deter you from renting this place. 2) check with the owner to see if anyone is using the cabins next to this one, they are really close together. All in all I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to relax. Lake was amazing, wilderness abound and the float planes are fun to watch. Cabin was stocked with all essentials including stuff not normally found (spices, garbage bags, etc...) Pleasently surprised by the upkeep and willingness to help from Gary.

Best of VNP

  • 5 of 5
This home is spacious, comfortable, well-equiped, and one of the finest places to stay in all of Voyageurs National Park (we've stayed many places over the years). It's a short boat ride from a public boat landing on Crane or Hanberg's Marina, where you can leave your vehicle. The crib-dock at the cabin faces east which helps protect your boat in higher winds. And the deck has counter/bar height chairs so that you can enjoy the view looking downward and outward to the lake. This is THE place to stay in VNP.

Simple Amazing week at Crane Lake! A MUST for anyone wanting to enjoy the great northwoods in style!

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous log cabin will take your breath away at first site! A home away from home, it has all the conveniences of being at home, the perks of staying at a resort and the peacefulness of staying "off the beaten path". Our days were filled with fishing, swiming, boating, blueberry/raspberry picking, bird watching, canoeing, kayakings and lots & lots of relaxing! The kitchen was a foodies dream, the seating area easily accomodated our two-family group. two master suites, the loft, 3rd bathroom and laundry room were all amazing! Don't have a boat? Neither did we! Owner Gary Nesseth will point you in the right direction to get you all set up with a boat rental. We look forward to making this an annual event!

Owner's Response: It truly is special for me to share such a beautiful wilderness wonder. I have enjoyed this location since 1995 and each time I go I am amazed at the unique wilderness. There is always wonder from bald eagles diving for fish to early morning blueberry picking for the morning pancakes observing the many bird species and small chipmunks and such looking for there breakfast. Hearing the call of the loons at dusk as they find their mate off the dock for the evening. Always something to do and see, or just doing nothing but relaxing. My family loves this location and keeps us together. Thank you so much for staying and your family will remember this fun vacation forever!

Amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the cabin was amazing. It was even better then advertised. The master bedroom came full with a whirlpool bath tub and heated floors in the bathroom. My fiancé and i at the time rented the cabin for our wedding party as we just got married in crane lake, the location is beautiful good fishing and swimming right off the dock from the cabin. Our wedding party loved the cabin we spent the days swimming and playing pool in the loft of the cabin. It was the perfect accommodation for a small wedding. We had a blast!!! It made our wedding week amazing my husband and I would do it all again. The owners are extremely nice and personable greeted us with a bottle of champagne and a dozen roses. The cabin and its location are truly amazing.

Beautiful home, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
When we booked our week fishing vacation, we hope this home would live up to it's description and photos. It did so and more. The house is located on an eastern facing peninsula, gets nice morning light and has plenty of windows providing great airflow. The construction is rock solid, and the appliances are all top of the line. Within 15 minutes of our arrival, one of our group stated, "I'm not leaving!"
While the house had an entertainment center, internet and a pool table, we did not expect to need it. After all, we were there to fish. These sure came in handy when the weather turned bad. With the nearby Vermilion Gorge and Falls, we had plenty to keep use busy. This was very helpful when our 10-year old grandson got tired of fishing.
We did not have any significant issues during our stay. However, when questions or small issues did arise, Gary (the owner) was very responsive and helpful. He made himself available when needed but was never intrusive.
The only downside to the location is the regular boat traffic past the front of the dock. The house is on the main route from a large marina to the connecting lakes in the north. That said, it was not the intrusion I expected it to be.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay. We would happily return again... but I expect we would have to bring our wives next time!

Gateway to the Voyageurs National Park, within minutes of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, and Canada's Quentico Wilderness Area gives this special new log cabin a super location.

Lake trout, walleye, northern, bass, crappie, perch and more, with more lakes to explore out number the type of fish. Canoe from cabin to enter the BWCA with a few hours. Crane Lake offers great fishing and swimming. Swim and fish of the dock or take a 5 minute boat ride to the north end of the lake in the Park and float your boat in to a sandy shallow beach, put the beach chairs and cooler in the lake and enjoy! Must sees are the Vermillion River waterfall dumping into Crane Lake, park service has a dock at the bottom of falls to park and take the trail to the top, quite a sight. Sandpoint Lake features pictographs from our early inhabitants of this area. Go hike the surrounding granite cliffs from the log cabin and enjoy the fantastic views, birding, mushrooming, beach combing, blueberry picking for the pancakes on the griddle is usually very good out you back door from mid June to mid July. The water is super clean and great for water skiing, tubing, and swimming. Sit back on the deck and enjoy the sunsets and moon rising. Enjoy the numerous wildlife with loons coming and going, bald eagles perch form the tops of the tall white pines looking for their fish diner, spruce grouse commonly cross your trail. You are on the edge of the great wilderness of the Minnesota Canada border and the preserved wilderness parks from each, yet after all the exploring come back to the log home for all the comforts you could want on an upscale luxury vacation.
