The "Rustic" cabin is situated in the RV/Tent sites at the Black Lantern. It is a tiny log cabin that sleeps just two people and maybe a child on the loft. A step up from a tent but rustic. Complete with a full size bed, a little loft, air conditioning, a stove/oven, pots and pans, microwave, small fridge, radio, TV and DVD for watching movies, a coffee machine, an adorable porch for setting on with chairs, a pic-nic table, firepit with a cooking grate and a culligan machine for drinking water. THE CATCH IS: It does not have a bathroom, but shares the outhouses that the other campers use. There is a spigot outside for hooking up sprinklers for the kiddos and filling water jugs to use inside the cabin, along with the Culligan machine inside the cabin for drinking water. You have access to the Resort's trails, playground, little fishing lake and the paddled boats. Right in between old downtown Bemidji and Itasca State Park both are a 25 minute drive. Bemidji has a gorgeous waterfront, many festivals, the Paul Bunyan and Babe Statues, many great restaurants, and antique stores too. Itasca has a sandy beach with showers, the origin of the Mississippi, a ferry boat, Douglas Lodge for a great restaurant, bike and boat rentals, and many biking trails.

We’d go back!
My son (7) and I had a wonderful weekend at the Rustic Cabin. This was the right amount of camping for us - we had a fire outside for hotdogs and s’mores, but we also had a/c and tv/dvd inside. The cabin was well stocked with kitchen tools and dishes. It was so clean, you could eat off the floor. I’ll eagerly recommend this cabin to friends and family.
Thank you two so much for coming and writing a review too. I am glad you guys could relax and have a good time. We really really appreciate it. Have a good day:)
I will be returning. Amazing service.
The rustic cabin is a huge step up from a tent. There is power and even air conditioning! If that doesn't convince you it has a cute little kitchen area with a stove, oven, fridge, coffee maker (not k cup), and various utensils. The whole place is cedar and smells amazing. The bed wasn't bad and found a funny dvd to watch before bed. No running water but portable waiter stations are around. I suggest renting one of their golf carts like we did and bum around. There is a fire grill and I cooked most meals on that for fun. Firewood for sale but we brought 2x4's. the lake is small and weedy but we fished out of the canoe. It's so beautiful out there. Annie is so sweet. Seriously. If someone ever gives less than five stars there is no pleasing that person in life.
