About Paul and Liesl Burnes
My wife and I are nurses in the Twin Cities. We have 2 two boys ages 5 and 7. We love Ely and the Boundary Waters and finally decided to purchase a cabin in this area. Because our boys are in so many summer activities we can't be a full-time cabin family so we want to share the beautiful area with others.

A Treasure close to Ely, MN
We are very impressed with Paul's cabin. It has been put together nicely. The workmanship on the cabin is great!
It is also close to Ely but far enough away that it is quiet (in September when we went) and a great place to spend time.
It is definitely a place we will be happy to refer!
Magnificent cozy cabin on a beautiful lake
My family has stayed at this lake for about 11 years, but this was the first time getting this particular cabin. It was just perfect for our family. The cabin was impeccably clean and well organized. It was stocked with games and books, and although the wind prevented up from being on the water, there are kayaks and canoe easily accessible. Our communication with the owner was prompt and helpful. They left lots of info about the area in an easy to use, organized binder that was well-curated. And the sitting dock down by the lake was just amazing and easily where we spent most of our outdoor time.
Lake Front Cabin Near Ely and BWCA
Everything went off without a hitch. The cabin was very peaceful and well equipped for a getaway. My partner and I read a some books and played games that were available inside. We were able to canoe, kayak, and swim from the dock in Lake Armstrong. The nearby town of Ely and surrounding area had numerous attractions. We played golf in Babbitt, hiked at bass lake, and enjoyed the ely steam sauna. We stayed a week and still felt that we left alot on the table for next time. There is a giant binder available that has all the information you could need to make decisions.
Property was just as described and provided a quiet retreat for my wife and my anniversary. Everything was clearly laid out and in great shape. Decent fishing in the lake and minimal bugs. Felt like our cabin for short while. Wonderful visit.
This cabin is amazing. Was so nice and clean and lots of space. Wonderful views of the lake and such gorgeous trees. Really enjoyed the sitting area by the dock — so I could watch my husband and dog fish (when I didn’t want to fish) but not be sitting in the way and could mostly be in the shade. I also appreciated being literally steps away from the lake so my husband could make many trips down to the dock to fish — and he caught lots of fish. I was also surprised how quiet the lake was and the whole area. A few pontoons went by and a fishing boat putted by but that was it. There were also some kayaks and a canoe to use if we wanted — but the fishing was so good off of the dock we didn’t need to. This was a wonderful vacation and the owner was so nice — he even texted us after a storm went through to make sure we were okay and had power(we did). Beautiful, peaceful cabin!
