Moose cabin is a rustic log cabin with a kitchen with cold running water, a dining area, a bedroom, a bedroom with a full size bed and two twin bunks, an enclosed sleeping porch with a queen bed, and a nearby bathhouse with hot showers, lavatory sinks, and latrine toilets. Lake Amnstrong is west of the cabins and therefore offers nightly sunset viewing at lakeside seating with a firepit for bonfires. Canoes and kayaks are available for use on the lake. A gravel swim beach near the ample lakeside seating provides fun family gathering. Nearby attractions include Wolf and Bear Centers, a mining museum, day canoe trips in the Boundary Waters, hiking or biking on nearby Mesabi Trail, and shopping for gear, apparel or local art in Ely.
Rustic Moose Cabin is the largest of the 4 Wilderness WInd cabins, sleeping 6.

About Owner / Property Manager
Wilderness Wind is owned and operated by Chicago Voyagers, a nonprofit that provides outdoor active experiences to urban youth that would not otherwise have access to such opportunities. Youth participate in biking, hiking, rock climbing, camping, and river and lake canoe paddling trips. Included are trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness that include wilderness canoeing, portaging, outdoor meal preparation, camping, navigation, and appreciation of the unique habitats of the BWCAW. Kids develop self confidence and are specifically taught leadership and teamwork skills. Your stay at our beautiful cabin helps support these programs for Chicago Voyagers kids! Thanks!
Owner / Property Manager purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Ely
Staying at our rustic cabins offers guests a chance to experience the same flora and fauna of the Boundary Waters that the youth participants experience but with the comfort of comfortable beds, kitchens, and nearby hot showers and toilets in the bath house. Guests can paddle canoes on the lake and enjoy a campfire, hear the call of loons, enjoy sunsets over the water, and in doing so, feel a little closer to our natural world.

The Wilderness Winds has everything you need to enjoy a rustic getaway but still feel comfortable. The dock was a great place to relax in the evening or catch your dinner. In addition, the available canoes and kayaks were great and always available! The best part of the property is the property manager, Jay. He ensures you have everything you need for your stay. While the property is rustic, you can certainly tell Wilderness Winds does quite a bit to keep the property nice.
Very nice place to go!
very nice place, it has everything we needed for a week long vacation. The lake is so beautiful! there are many equipment for riding and boating, fishing, and is free no charge. We would've taken more advantage of them, just found out later. The rooms are big enough for our four adults, the bedding, towers and kitchen ware are plenty for us. I would've bring nothing for a cabin which is quite unusual! Thank you for the owner and programer. They are very dedicated to the children, this resource is for charity not for profit!
