Superior Log Hideaway is just a little east of heaven on a small quiet lake in the wild heart of the Superior National Forest, only about 8 miles from the southern boundary of the B.W.C.A. Search far and wide but you will not find many places in Minnesota or the planet that rival the remote tranquility and amazing craftsmanship of this extraordinary log homestead. So remote that access is limited to pulling pulk sleds (6 provided) in the snowy months. A perfect place to commune with nature, reconnect with family and restore your spirit. If you are planning a wild party weekend, please seek different accommodations. Big red and white pines tower overhead, providing nesting habitat for eagles, osprey, owls and kestrels. You are surrounded by 17 acres of tall pines for complete seclusion and privacy. All buildings are full log construction and include the main cabin, sleeping cottage, sauna and outhouse. There's also a fish cleaning shack, covered BBQ and fire pit for roasting weenies and s'mores. We even throw in 3 CANOES and FIREWOOD. Beautiful handcrafted rustic furnishings add to the cozy up-north atmosphere. The master bedroom features a gas fireplace and the living area boasts a stone wood-burning fireplace.
If you are looking for a quiet, secluded wilderness escape, you have found it. Even with a very adequate public boat launch less than a minute away, there is no such thing as 'rush hour' on pristine Lake Gegoka. Speedboats, tubing and jet skis are definitely out of character here. This sparkling clean little 150 acre lake offers fishing, canoeing, swimming and just plain gazing out at. Our 3 complimentary canoes provide a perfect way to explore the lake. The dock, which pokes out into the narrows in front of the cabin, is available to cast your line from or could accommodate your own small fishing boat launched from the public landing across the lake. Lake Gegoka is a shallow sandy bottomed lake and warms up early in the summer. Just a few minutes away is a little used public swimming/picnic area on Flathorn Lake. There is a very scenic hiking trail around it.
Lake Superior's North Shore is only about 30 minutes away and provides many opportunities for day trips, including Split Rock Lighthouse tours, the Superior Hiking Trail and some of Minnesota's most popular State Parks. It's a great place to cool down on a warm day inland and grab a bite to eat or a special souvenir. Ely is a 45 minute drive and has a variety of good restaurants and unique gift shops. This lively little town is the jumping off point for Boundary Waters Canoe Area trips and has some great attractions for rainy or sunny days. Both the International Wolf Center and the North American Bear Center are great places to learn about 2 of the area's wild residents. The Soudan Mine tour is a fascinating look back in time to 'hard rock' underground mining on the Range in the early 1900's.
