bad vacation

  • 2 of 5

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

Owner's Response: 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.

Beautiful scenery, need to have a boat

  • 3 of 5

We were unaware that you need a boat to access this property. That information would have been most helpful.

Nice getaway on the edge of Voyageurs NP

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at this quaint little cabin on Crane Lake. The accommodations were as described...2 bedrooms, comfortable beds, linens and clean. The dock was near the cabin, so even though you had to haul your gear up some wasn't a very long hike. The cabin itself was older, but has had the necessary updates to make it comfortable for a family to spend the week.

Two minor complaints - I wish the property had a fire pit. It sure would have been nice to spend the evenings outdoors around a campfire. I also think the price is a little high for the accommodations. $20 per night less would price it inline with other VRBO rentals I've personally rented.

Owner's Response: Its always a pleasure for me to share this special wilderness setting. I have been bringing my family up here since 1995. Its the right mix of no roads, only a boat or sonwmobile access, but within one mile of bars and resturants. We are still looking into a firepit of some type. Since this is no road access and on the edge of the BWCA and Voyageures National Park, wildfires are always an issue. It has been very hot and dry the last 2 months. Price is always a factor on everybodys vacation. The cabin per day or week price is based on others on Crane Lake. Being no road access that I truly enjoy does make the costs abit higher. Thanks so much for your stay and thanks for the input. I will seriously look into having a fire pit of some time next year.

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.
