Stay on your own 2 1/4 acre private island on beautiful Burntside Lake near Ely, Minnesota. One of the country's top-ten most beautiful lakes, studded with approx. 125 islands and ringed with coves and bays. Watersports paradise: swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, boating and fishing. A deep water lake of over 7000 acres. Fishing centers on lake trout which have been stocked since 1912. Fisherman also enjoy a population of walleye, smallmoutn bass, and northern pike.
The cabin is hand scribed logs from the Isabella area and constructed in 1984. (the outhouse is also constructed of hand scribed logs). The main level has one bedroom, kitchen, dinning area, 'bathroom' consisting of a small vanity and shower, and the main living area with a wood burning stove. The area above the living area is open to the vaulted ceiling.The loft is open to the living area and has a double and single bed.
The island was 'spared' from logging in the early 1900's due to size, therefore we have first growth red pines. BEAUTIFUL!
Watch & listen to loons and ducks swim by. View sunrises and sunsets from one of the three decks. If you're lucky, you can view Aurora Boreallis from the dock.
We have an outdoor firepit for campfires or cookouts.
Your vehicle will be secure at the public access where you will be met and escorted to the island and made comfortable with the property.
Bring your own boat, we provide canoes for your use.

We are semi-retired and love spending time on the island and boating around the many beautiful islands.
It is a great place for the children and grand children to 'explore'.
We fell in love with Burntside Lake on our first family vacation on the lake.
Shortly thereafter we learned of this undeveloped island for sale.
We always maintained if we would build a cabin it would have to be of log construction.
We love having the entire (small) island to ourselves.
Very quiet and peaceful.
We can view both sunrises and sunsets from one of the decks.
