|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
We are surrounded by wildlife out here, and wilderness. The cabin is perfect to get away but still be close and spend time with those you cherish. The cabin has a queen bed, with a library of VHS movies:) a propane fireplace in the center of the cabin, full kitchen that is equipped with all eating/cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock, & baking sheets, an open living space, the bathroom is custom built with a double headed shower with a built in bench, concrete sink and shelves, all the linens are provided and meticulously cleaned for the kitchen, bed, & bath. We outfit the cabin with children's games, coloring, etc. , adult's games like cribbage, family conversation starters, puzzles, bird seed, books & magazines & don't forget the VHS collection if you want to hole up and watch movies! Outside the deck wraps around so you can watch the wildlife outside which has included bear, turkeys, tons of squirrels and birds and many others. We supply chairs for sitting and a personal fire pit enclosed in boulders with built in stone chairs. A starry sky here is amazing and can be so quiet at night it is gorgeous. A Winter stay is my favorite, as we leave snowshoes for the guests and it is the most secluded time of the year. Our guests have even brought and decorated Christmas trees! Since we are right on the snowmobile trail guests can hop right on their snowmobiles for a day on the trails too. There is also 7 RV sites and a very rustic cabin in a different location on the property and a stunning outdoor venue. It is very fun to explore, we do rent golf carts for the guests too. The lake is a small lake that is not lined with tons of houses, it is still a wild lake. We have a little dock house that has life jackets and some fishing gear in it that our guests are welcome to use and there are kayaks, canoes, & paddle boats that are also at the guest's disposal. A playground is there for the children too:)
My name is Annie Eastey and I run this place with every family member and friend we can! It takes an army
:) We all just love this place, it is a meticulously maintained property and lots of fun. We are easy breezy people and are here to help you do nothing or everything and enjoy yourself!
Annie Eastey purchased this cabin in 2007
My family vacationed to a LITTLE cabin in the woods right by here where we indulged by cooking on a wood stove, pumping our own water and using kerosene lamps instead of electricity, and card games instead of TV. I have not been able to shake this part of the forest and it is where my heart is. I came back to Northern MN the first chance I realized I couldn't live without it.
We are located directly between Bemidji and Itasca state Park. Choosing which to visit is hard, considering days can fly by spending time at each location. That is, if you can convince yourself to leave the cabin 'Eleanor' and property surrounding her. There are 100's of acres to roam on and explore, there are trails for walking and ATVing through the forest, berry picking at our place or the berry farm a couple miles down the road. The cabin is situated on stilts in the canopy of the pines away from everything else with a personal boulder landscaped fire pit and wrap around deck.
Ter-Lee Gardens: a couple miles away has asparagus, strawberry, raspberry, gourd and pumpkin picking.
Itasca State Park: 15 miles away has a sandy beach, home to the origin of the mighty Mississippi, a lodge to dine at, souvenier store, ice cream shoppe, ferry boat rides, bicycle & boat rentals, & ENDLESS trails! The place is gorgeous.
Bemidji, is home to the Sanford Event Center that hosts wonderful events and conventions regularly, the town regularly puts on many festivals: Dragon Boat Festivals, St. Paddys Parade, Water Carnival, Art Fairs, the town is highly involved in the community and provides us with lots to do. The historic side of town is home to the famous Paul Bunyan & Babe the Blue OX statues, antique shopping and great eating all with just a stroll around the old downtown, there is even a small children's museum and REALLY good live theater. The newer part of Bemidji has the newer stores and eating like TJ MAXX/Target & MANY restaurants.
We are in the center of three Indian reservations that provide 3 Spectacular Casinos within 35-45 minutes, the beautiful Ojibwe language is prevalent in the area and lives even on local signage. We are surrounded by fishing lakes, if you want to hop from lake to lake too. Again, that is if you can convince yourself to leave the beautiful forest on the property where cabin Eleanor is, and the Black Lantern Resort. Guests also enjoy ATVing in the area and find their ways down to local restaurants South of us on day trips!
