Overview

Grand Rapids Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom & second story loft (sleeps 9), 3/4 bath + electric for a 5th wheel.

Nestled in the woods along beautiful Trout Lake, the Northern JEM is truly a place to relax and unwind. It offers something for everyone -- abundant fishing (as close as off the dock - great for kids!), a great lake for water skiing and tubing and lots of wildlife. Watch bald eagles fish and feed their young in the pine tree next to the dock. Start or end your day with incredible sunrises and sunsets over pristine waters.... what more could you ask for?!

Trout Lake is a moderate sized lake (approx. 1900 acres with 13.5 miles of shoreline) and if you enjoy fishing, it is a good place to wet your line. The lake was stocked for many years with walleye and also offers northern pike, rock bass, sunfish, perch, blue gills, etc. The lake's topography provides for excellent fishing with a maximum depth of approx. 135 feet - lots of shelves and rolling terrain make the challenge of landing a trophy fish all the more fun! Water clarity and quality is very good.

Trout Lake is also a water skier's dream! The lake is 4.5 miles long, so you can ski and tube for hours without being interrupted by other boats and jet skis. The lake is not heavily populated so you will not encounter much boat traffic, other than those trolling along a shelf line hoping too to land a big one!

The lake has two public boat launches and beaches -- one on the north end off of Hwy 169 and the other is located immediately across the lake from our dock. Your rental includes the use of a canoe, 2 kayaks, life jackets, paddles, etc... You are welcome to to tie your own motor boat to the dock. There also is power available by the dock for live wells.

If fishing and swimming aren't your thing, you can spend hours reading in solitude or observing lots of wildlife on the property, including eagles, hawks, osprey, a family of deer, hummingbirds, pileated woodpeckers, loons, an occasional raccoon or beaver, as well as the always curious chipmunks.

The Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway begins in Grand Rapids and ends 47 miles north in Effie. Travel this spectacular, winding byway by many pristine lakes, forests, swamps, rolling hills, and other unique features.

Outdoor recreation, including miles of marked hiking trails, and interpretive sites are waiting to be explored. During fall, the north woods is adorned with the brilliant colors of red sugar maples, bronze oak trees and glowing gold aspen and birch. Little outposts and antique shops exist along the way. The Chippewa National Forest and the Suomi Trails offer miles of paved trails for hiking, biking and rollerblading.

Learn about Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm, at her birthplace and childhood home in Grand Rapids, including a very interesting exhibit at the Itasca County Museum. Step into pages from the past and discover the history of the logging era at the Minnesota Forest History Center. Here you can climb a 100' fire tower and see for miles! The Children's Discovery Museum offers great entertainment for younger children. You can also take tours of the Blandin Paper Mill (located on the Mississippi River) and the Hill Annex Mine & State Park. Hibbing, Minnesota, hometown of music legend Bob Dylan, is less than a 1/2 hour drive away and there you can visit the Bob Dylan Collection, found in the Hibbing Library.

If golf is your game, several well-maintained 18-hole golf courses provide championship play -- Eagle Ridge, Pokegama & Sugarbrooke. Four 9-hole courses are also in the area. Grand Rapids is home to the annual Grand Slam Amateur Golf Tournament, held each year on the 3rd weekend of August.

The Canisteo Pit is a large lake formed in a complex of 19 inactive mine pits located immediately north of Coleraine, Bovey and Taconite, MN. Canisteo Pit is about 4.8 miles long and averages one-half mile wide. The pit lake averages 100 feet deep with its deepest point at nearly 300 feet. It is stocked by the DNR and offers excellent fishing and water sport opportunities.

Several day trips can also be planned. The Mississippi River Headwaters are about a 75 minute drive to the west and Duluth and the North Shore are approximately the same distance to the south and east. The edge of the Mesabi Iron Range and the north woods has a lot to offer. Come and stay for a while -- you won't want to go home!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We went for MEA weekend 2014. Our two young sons were not happy about the drive (from south twin cities area) but all objections were put aside the minute we arrived! Just past peak leaf season, we still enjoyed the beautiful days watching the deer, bald eagles and beautiful surroundings. My 7 yr old said he'd like to live there! Great, clean, fun location for our family. The owners were so friendly and responsive when we had questions. Would recommend to anyone!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have 2 young boys who did not love the longer drive but all concerns were gone the minute we arrived. Even though we got there post peak for leaves, we loved every moment at the cabin! My 7 yr old said he wanted to live there... We hiked, saw deer every day close up and bald eagles. We played, fished and just had a great long weekend. Wonderful weekend! The owners were great and got back to us right away when needed. Would recommend this place to anyone.

First time users of VRBO ~ highly recommend this place for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with 3 grown children) gathered here for a family get away. LOVED the place, tucked away in the woods for a nice quiet vacation (but not to far into the woods). Pictures are accurate. Kitchen has everything you need. Outdoors shed well supplied with water toys,chairs and items for campfires. Wildlife at your back door. Enjoyed the loons while kayaking/paddle boat or just sitting on the deck enjoying my morning coffee. Trout lake is large enough to play on the jet ski's. The cabin is well maintained. Perfect location to do site seeing of the mines. (Highly recommend touring the Soudan Mines). Nick and Linda were very easy to work with and were always prompt in answering any questions we had. Could not have wished for a better first time experience.

True Jewel

  • 5 of 5

Have had the privilege of staying at "The Jem" three times, now. Once with a large group of friends, once with family and once by myself. In all situations the property, cabin and lake proved perfect. The cabin is very accommodating and spacious with an open layout conducive to relaxation and conversation. The surrounds are gorgeous! Forest and wildlife with nice flat spots to set up a tent or two. Great space right by the lake for a large tent. The owners are very pleasant people to work with, answer questions promptly and have offered invaluable info on family activities in the area. My favorite activity at The JEM is an early morning paddle in the bay…with loons calling and wisps of fog rolling over the bow of the canoe. Private, quiet, end of the cul-de-sac - Can't wait to return!

The Northern Jem

  • 5 of 5

The Northern Jem is definitely a gem! If you want a peaceful and quiet get away this is the place to go! Very spacious, clean and accommodating. Lots of activities to do both inside and out--some of my favorites are kayaking, canoeing, outdoor grilling, outdoor fire pit, making a home cooked meal using the wide assortment of kitchen utensils and condiments available, spacious sleeping accommodations, watching the pileated woodpecker, eagle and deer, relaxing with a good book and taking walks at sunrise and sunset. The view is spectacular. I would recommend this "hideaway" to young and old. Owners will go out of their way to please you! Give them a call today!
