Premier Quieter Private Rental - Nicely Furnished 2 BR right off Crane Lake Road
About David Magelssen
I have been enjoying the Crane Lake area since I was first introduced to it by in 1977 with my first deer hunt. I have since learned all of the beautiful outdoor benefits that this area has to offer including boating, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, ATV'ing, hunting and list goes on.... I developed the concept of a rental lodge during a stay in the area and purchased the land in December of 1995. My background is in Property Management (own and manage apartment buildings all over MN) so I created a premier rental that I could manage from where ever my location. It is set up for outdoor enthusiasts, family vacationers or business retreats.
David Magelssen purchased this Cabin in 2010

All around great stay!
Facowie is clean and comfortable with beautiful views. Was a great location for us grouse hunting as it is a short drive to many walking/atv trails.
We had a wonderful time staying in the Loon Lodge! David, the owner was so kind and gave us ideas of many things to do in the area. We did hiking at the Vermilion gorge and falls, Bog walk in Orr, Soudan Mine tour, Vince Shute Bear Sanctuary and day trip to Ely. The nights are quiet and beautiful. My favorite part were the STARS!! The lodge was exceptionally clean and well stocked with all you need! Highly recommend if you are looking to just get away from it all!
Relaxing and Quiet
Great location, very clean, organized, well stocked kitchen.
The property was exactly as described. Clean, convenient location and the owners were great to work with. It felt like home. We would stay here again for sure!
We really enjoyed our stay at Facowie lodge for snowmobiling. Practically right on the trails for easy access and minutes away from gas and food. The lodge was clean well decorated and plenty of parking space for big snow trailers and trucks. Gas fire place was operational and provided warmth at night after a day of riding. I would highly recommend this place to stay if you want to see the beautiful Voyeger National Park up close and personal and surrounding areas.
We appreciated your stay at FacowieLodge and thank you for the great write up! The Voyageurs Nation Park and Crane Lake area has some of the best snowmobiling in Minnesota and I'm glad that you were able to enjoy it. It's a little drive but the pay off is amazing with the trails, scenery and the business establishments to stop at!
Thanks again, Facowie!
Facowie Lodge Review
We enjoyed the Facowie Lodge. It was well equipped in the kitchen and bedrooms. It was a comfortable stay other than the -10 to -40 degree temperatures. We stayed warm inside. Even with the cold there was plenty of activities in the area.
Upon request on a booking, we have a 4 page Guest Information packet that has lists of all the activities in the area.
