Cabin, 3 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Experience the solitude and beauty of the Boundary Waters with the comforts of home in this new log cabin on Winchester Lake.

Truly off the grid, this cabin offers a rustic experience with the convenience of refrigeration and power. The cabin is solar powered with automatic generator backup. With no phone or internet, you really 'get away' from technology distractions. The cabin offers one bedroom on the main floor, a large loft and two bedrooms on the lower level. The loft has two futon couches that can convert to beds for additional sleeping. There is a 3/4 bath on the main floor and a full bath in the lower level. Cabin offers a deck with gas grill and seating. Take in the evening sounds of nature as you warm by the campfire and roast a marshmallow or two. Firewood supplied.

On this remote Boundary Waters style lake we generally find ourselves the only ones on the lake. So that great fishing spot is always available. This lake is full of small mouth bass, you can barely get your pole in before there is a fish on your line. Over a five year range the DNR stocked this deep lake with over 15,000 lake trout. Other fish include northern pike, walleye, perch and sunfish. The lake offers limited boat access. A 14ft. fishing boat with motor and a Canoe are included with rental.

Up in the north woods, we regularly see eagles and loons while enjoying the lake. In the evening you may hear the hoot of an owl or a wolf howling at the moon. Moose, deer, bear, beavers, and other small critters find their homes around our property.

Whether a couple looking to get back to nature or a family looking to spend quality time, your time at Winchester Lake is sure to be memorable.

About Dave Lindroth

Dave and Deb Lindroth purchased the land in fall of 2003 with plans of building a log cabin. Three kids and two dogs later, we decided our camper was too small and we were ready to build that log cabin. Cabin was built in 2011.

Dave Lindroth purchased this Cabin in 2003

Why Dave Lindroth chose Orr

We enjoyed camping in the Boundary Waters every summer and found this location to give the Boundary Waters experience combined with some comforts of home. We wanted a cabin where we weren't looking into the neighbor's window. On our 40 acre plot, with 1300 ft shoreline we have found that.

What makes this Cabin unique

With the many distractions in life, we have found our cabin the place to get away and enjoy our family while experiencing the many

                                                    Perfect blend of wilderness experience and luxury comforts

                                                    Mark H.Minnesota

                                                    We have done several remote Northwoods getaways and this is simply among the best. The home is clean, well appointed, with plenty of room for family or friends to gather or find a quite place to read. The lake was absolutely private and in the mornings and evenings was the perfect glassy surface for a relaxing canoe trip. Services are a bit of a drive, but there are lots of activities within about an hour if you decide to leave this serene retreat. Hearing the silence of the lake in the morning is worth the effort to get here.

                                                    Solitude with the comforts of home.

                                                    Ron W.Williamson, Michigan

                                                    Thank you so much for sharing a wonderful place. We enjoyed our week of complete solitude, as we were the only people in this pure wild land. The perseids meteor shower was in peak form, about 6 hours after our arrival, as we watched fire balls, we heard loons, owls and coyotes. A experience we will never forget.

                                                    Fantastic Getaway!

                                                    John K.

                                                    Unbelievable cabin in the great North woods. All the comforts of home in a very remote location. Everything was as described by the Owner. Movie night in the loft was a great time with our kids. Highly recommended!

                                                    Rustic setting, without sacrificing comfort

                                                    Dan S.Minnesota

                                                    The Cabin is very nice, with a convenient layout, and very well maintained. 5 stars, even though the weather was terrible all week, which made fishing and other activities tough. That being said, everything about the property was great, and the cool, rainy weather allowed us to enjoy the fireplaces. Boat motor worked great, started on 1-2 pulls! Bathrooms are roomy and laid out well. The bedrooms and beds are on the small side. The kitchen is very nice, and has a good assortment of appliances, utensils, etc, including a pancake griddle, which we used heavily. The logging road got pretty rough after heavy rain, but was manageable for several trips in and out. Fishing wasn't great, but not surprising with a series of cold fronts. Still managed to get some eating sized perch and sunfish, and some smallmouth. Overall, well stocked and clean, and very, very private.

                                                    perfect vacation

                                                    Ernie V.

                                                    the cabin and weather was absolutely perfect. Fishing was amazing; way more than we could eat. The privacy ( no one on the lake all week) coupled with being off the grid was so relaxing it really made our vac perfect. Thanks Dave!

                                                    Perfect get away

                                                    Ronald K.

                                                    Everything was as described. The lake was virtually deserted. Saw only two other boats all week. Dave was great about making a small adjustment in our schedule. Strongly recommend this location if your vehicle has clearance to complete the last 3 miles and if you can live without cell phone or Wi-Fi for the length of your stay.
