Marcell House Rental Photos and Description

100 Feet From Lake Shore, Sleeps Up To 13, True Log, Screen Porch

We love the remodeling project in this beautiful cabin and believe that the photos doesn't do it justice! For 2017 we had the exterior logs sandblasted and stained. We also did more landscaping around the cabin. There is always something new every year.

We have a new kitchen with beautiful hickory cabinets and a dark counter top. Our cabin has new stainless steel appliances and a new wood floor.

The bathrooms were remodeled and our Log Cabin has a bath and a half. The new hickory vanities are beautiful. There is a large shower in the main bathroom.

We just replaced all the mattresses as well as the bedding and comforters! The Master bedroom has one Queen bed and one XL Twin bed. The second bedroom on the main level has two XL Twin beds. The large loft has two Double/Full beds and two XL Twin beds.

Whether you are looking for a summer vacation, fishing vacation, fall vacation, family vacation.................this log cabin has it all.

The Log Cabin at Cedar Point Resort has it all. The cabin has:

Hand scribed logs

3 sleeping areas (2 bedrooms and a large loft) and sleeps up to 13 guests

Satellite TV

Remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances and hickory cabinets

New mattress and comfortable furniture

Private lot with 200 feet of lake shore, surrounded by forest

Private fire ring

Private dock

There's great fishing on North Star Lake. North Star is a DNR managed lake and is stocked with walleye. It is also a designated Muskie lake. There are still trophy fish in North Star.

May - September the resort, Cedar Point Resort (only 700 feet away), is open and you will have access to all the resort amenities:

Lodge with Food, Wi-Fi, Pool Table, Games

Heated Pool (Memorial Day - Labor Day)

Game Room

Beach and Swim Raft

Scheduled activities for families and kids

Much more!

For the month of October and November the resort is closed, but this beautiful cabin is still available. Come and enjoy the fall colors!

Perhaps you just need to get away. The Log Cabin is a perfect place to just sit and relax and read a book, take a nap or rest and regroup.

Whatever it is you are looking for, we have it here.

About Karen Senger

We have owned and operated Cedar Point Resort for 16 years. We love it in the 'great north woods.' It is a perfect compromise between being both remote and close to services.

Karen Senger purchased this house in 2012

Why Karen Senger chose Minnesota

We purchased this property in November 2012. It is a beautiful log cabin with private lake shore on 3 1/2 acres of forest and only 100 feet from shore. It adjacent to Cedar Point Resort and is a perfect fit for us (and you)!

What makes this house unique

We have always loved this hand scribed log home that was built around 1986. The logs are so gorgeous and they were harvested locally from a nearby forest. When it came up for sale, we couldn't say no.

This cabin is private home, yet is just the next property from the resort and has full use of resort amenities: Pool, swim beach, swim raft, lodge, game room, family and kid activities.....

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived in the fall. We needed to get away. The Log Cabin was perfect. We loved the screened porch and the fall colors were perfect. We felt as if we had the whole lake to ourselves. Love it. We will be back.

Excellent Cabin - The Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 adults, 2 teenagers, and 2 kids) stayed at this cabin for a week in June and it was amazing. We also rented a pontoon from the resort for the week as well. The cabin was very clean, very well stocked, and had very nice furniture. To me this is the best of both worlds, you have the privacy and seclusion of a private cabin, fire pit, and dock, but a short walk lets you take advantage of all of the great amenities at the resort (boats, pool, swimming beach & toys, game room, fishing bait, food (including homemade caramel rolls & made to order pizza for those times you don't want to cook), etc.). The lake was the perfect size to me with several different parts to the lake and a long shoreline, but not too big in any one spot nor was it so small that it was boring. The lake shape allowed for excellent boating and fishing no matter what the weather was - if it was rough (from weather) or busy (from skiers) on the main part of the lake you can easily go to another section of the lake and have calm waters and privacy. Even with the fishing being off due to weather during our stay, we were still able to catch a number of fish (sunfish, several species of bass, and a muskie), including a bunch right off the dock. The kids really enjoyed the momma duck and her baby that visited us often as well as the turtles laying eggs in the front yard. My family had plenty to do between the lake, fire pit, resort amenities, hiking on the trails, and shopping in near by towns. The owners were great to work with and clearly take pride in their property and creating a positive experience for the vacationers. This is well worth the drive if you don't want to put up with the hustle and bustle of the Nisswa area like us - you won't be sorry!

Great "up north" cabin experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family and two others (6 adults, 6 kids) stayed at this log cabin over a long weekend in May. It was wonderful. The cabin is clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated. The cabin property feels quite private, with its own dock, yard, fire pit, etc. But then the resort lodge is close by if you want to take advantage of the game room, ice cream, boat rentals, etc. The kids had a blast playing with the kayaks, water bikes, and canoes; and we rented the pontoon boat for an evening. We hiked in the forest one afternoon. There is a lot to do in the area--we need to come back for a whole week! Owners are good--cheerful and attentive. Great "up north" cabin experience!

Cedar Point Resort is in the Chippewa National Forest on beautiful North Star Lake. You will find 15 miles of shoreline on just North Star Lake. There is plenty to do here. Or, if you prefer, you can just sit and relax and listen to the waves on the lake and the animals and birds. There are 100 lakes within 10 miles of North Star Lake.
