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

Great place! Very clean and quiet.
We are planning on going back!
Everything about this place is perfect for snowmobiling. We had 2 four place trailers, trails right outside the front door, we could gas up not too far away, plenty of space, beautiful cabin. Basically everything you need!!!
I certainly appreciate your wonderful review! I am glad we were able to accommodate your family along with your brother's family in one location. Hopefully the motel room doors attaching the units came in handy. We hope you consider continuing to explore the Voyageurs National Park in the future. The area is beautiful in the summer and an amazing chain of lakes!
Dave @ FacowieLodge!
Great stay in the north woods
Clean, comfortable cabin - close to marina, hiking, and points of interest.
Beautiful property with every creature comfort you need!
The lodge was very clean and stocked with every possible item we might need. The proximity to Crane lake was perfect and Echo lake just across the street was a frequent stop for us. David was very accommodating.
Absolutely loved staying here! The cabin is very well stocked with kitchen essentials, towels, extra blankets & pillows, etc. Very clean and cozy! Beds are comfortable. Loved the "woodsy" decor. Gas station/grocery store in Orr, make a stop there if needing any essentials as there is not much after that. Trails End (half mile down the road) offers boats and a pontoon for rent. Great food at the restaurant too! Recommend hiking at Vermillion Falls-beautiful! Overall a great place to stay, had everything we needed and more-loved being out of the city! Will definitely visit again.
All good...just make sure you bring what you need because the nearest store is about 10 miles.
Well kept and beautiful property. Thanks Dave!
