Cute, classic cabin
Loved the rustic, classic cabin. Comfortably slept here with the family. Great view of Lake Gegoka. Firewood and canoes on site were fun, easy drives to swimming holes along Baptism River. Would love to return for winter sports!
Hi Charles. Glad you enjoyed your visit to the Big Pines Getaway. Thanks so much for sharing a bit of your itinerary. We actually live on the Baptism River a few miles past Finland. It was nice to have a couple hot days to enjoy the swimin' holes. The cabins and ski trails are amazing when the snow flies. Thanks again, Andy & Lura
Beautiful log home with a fantastic view of the lake. We did a lot of cooking and baking and the kitchen had everything we needed. They even have a crockpot!!
We caught northerns, bass and perch for two meals! Quiet lake for a fishing boat and easy to canoe or kayak.
Our tweenager girls painted a few pictures and got paint on a table and carpet in the loft...this was unbeknownst to the adults and he was kind enough to return our deposit. Thank you Andy!!
This was one of the most relaxing enjoyable family trips we’ve taken!
Hi Mara. Glad you enjoyed your family and some fish as well. Thanks for taking time to share your review and apologies on behalf of the tweens. Really appreciate your choosing to stay at the Getaway. Sincerely, Andy
Getaway with a combination of adult and tween kids
We gathered our party of eight including our adult children and tween kids for a long weekend getaway up north. We were looking for something that combined on the water so we could fish and canoe and experience nature with something that was also relatively close to the North Shore. We found it!!
The sleeping Arrangement provided plenty of options for couples andand kids/ teens. And the two canoes were a wonderful addition. We travelled back and forth to the North Shore and state parks 2 days out of the four we were at the property spending a lot of time as well each day in the canoes exploring the lake. After canoeing in one evening and getting chilled we fired up the sauna and enjoyed warming up before heading back up to the cabin.
We had several questions during our stay and Andy was quick to respond.
Hi Amanda. It was great having your gang up to the Big Pines Getaway. Glad you were able to explore this tranquil, remote spot and take a trip to the North Shore too. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and your business. Sincerely, Andy
Great cabin in beautiful location
Cabin was sparkling clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the lake and canoes. The cabin had A great view of the lake and we saw a swan gracefully gliding across it. We took several day trips to the north shore to see waterfalls and enjoyed the area. The oven seems to have problems heating to full temp, but the grill and everything g else for cooking worked great. It was a wonderful Place to get away from the city. WiFi was really nice to have and worked pretty good.
Hi Mike. So glad your family got to spend some time together at the Getaway. Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm. I apologize about the oven. I appreciate you letting us know so I can check into it. Cheers, Andy
Had a very good experience!
Andy’s place was very beautiful! Perfect getaway from the cities! Cabin was very clean and neat had everything we need from wine opener to firewoods. If you want to enjoy nice and quiet weekend by a bonfire I recommend coming up here. And don’t forget to steam yourself off in the sauna after a long hiking or a long trip of venturing to an amazing scenic with the canoes they have provided.
Hi Vergil. Very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Getaway. Thanks for taking time to post your review. -Andy
For those who enjoy nature and being close to it, this is the ideal getaway. In this remote corner of Superior National Forest, wildlife is abundant. Moose roam the area, and on occasion have been seen swimming in our lake. Timber wolves, pine martin, foxes, fishers and many other shy forest creatures are seen and heard. The surrounding area is very sparsely populated and offers many opportunities for exploring. The U.S. Forest Service maintains a number of hiking trails, picnic areas and public accesses to lakes large and small. Day trips to the B.W.C.A. wilderness are also an option.
Other Activities: shopping in Ely, kayaking, wildlife viewing, boating, cross country skiing, snowshoeing
Ski: Direct access to 30K of groomed, single tracked classic cross country ski trails. Flathorn/Gegoka trail system. No skijoring. Also designated snowshoe trails.

About Andy Fisher
Love my job as a lodging host. I wear many hats and pretty much enjoy most of them (especially the bomber!)
Andy Fisher purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Andy Fisher chose Isabella
Location, location, location. The woods and lake are beautiful and pristine!
What makes this Cabin unique
We're easy to get to but far from the noise and lights. Lots of Minnesota's rare and shy wildlife hangs out right in the surrounding Superior National Forest. You can even see the stars (all of them!). Peace & quiet...
