2 Bedrooms, one bath, sleeps 4-5
Gary's -place is appointed as advertised and just a nice and quiet getaway. Do not hesitate to rent this spot if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing break from it all.
When we got there, the screen door was opened, and have hole in the screen. The first night we all got bit with mosquito, no slept. the kitchen is so small with no bowl and only 1 6 inch frying pan. I asked about fan before I left home, no fan at the cabin. when we use the grill, cook steaks for 5 mins then ran out of gas. Bad experience
I guess there was a communication problem with the foreign speaking couple.
It was hard to understand them and they felt the same about me. I told them fans are under the bed. The cabin clearly shows in pictures and description the size of the cabin and the kitchen. The problem was they tried to squeeze 5 adults in a 2 bedroom with a kitchen living room combined. I told them up front it will be tight. The kitchen is fully stocked with several frying pans and numerous sized bowls. As for running out of gas on grill, if Pornruethai , I think that is how you spell her first name, could have understood my English, there is another tank under the deck. Communication is the key, if you cannot understand English , things breakdown.
Cabin on Crane
We had a great time! This cabin offered everything we expected. We are already planning another trip for next year.
Beautiful scenery, need to have a boat
We were unaware that you need a boat to access this property. That information would have been most helpful.

Stayed in August 2015
My family stayed for a week in august of 2015. The cabin was very clean and well furnished. The setting was very nice. Fishing was good very close to the cabin.
Centrally located within minutes of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (the world's most pristine wilderness canoe & fishing country), the entry to the Voyageurs National Park ( the only water/boating accessible national park), and Quentico Park (Canada's remote wilderness canoe/boat park). Must see's are the Vermillion River waterfall gorge a short boat ride from your wilderness cabin, Painted pictographs on rock outcropping on Sand Point Lake (10 minute boat ride from your cabin) and the best fishing and snowmobiling on countless lakes and trails. The major snowmobile trail head of Voyageurs Crane Lake Trail is 2 miles away and the trail goes past your cabin.
Hike the surrounding ridges, climb to the top for some unbelievable scenic views of the wilderness area. In July go out your back door for some of the best blueberry picking around. Bald eagle's perch from the tall white pines as they fish for dinner. Deer and sage grouse are plentiful on your hikes by the cabin. Bird watching, beach combing, rock picking, swimming, mushrooming, are all fantastic on your wilderness retreat. Boat or snowmobile access only except in winter a ice road is plowed to cabin. Two miles by boat or snowmobile from the marina & parking where your journey of a lifetime begins.
